The HP DeskWriter 693 is a color inkjet printer that is an excellent fit for the home or small office user. It has features that make it easy to use for less-experienced users, and resolution enhancement provides sharp print quality. Printer ink costs are very low, as HP 693 ink is affordably-priced.
The 693 is very compact, measuring 7.9 inches by 17.2 inches by 15.9 inches and weighs only 11.7 pounds. Its straightforward design is aesthetically-pleasing and it includes only two buttons on the unit itself, helping avoid confusion for newer users.
Input paper capacity is 100 sheets, and can hold a maximum of 8.5x14 inch paper. In addition to the traditional printing options, there is a port on the back that allows banner paper to pass through the printer for making banners, a feature that has become less common for inkjet printers. The machine connects via parallel port, which may be a problem for users with only a USB connection, though an adapter can be used in this situation.
Print speed is slow, at up to 5 pages per minute for black and up to 3 pages per minute for color, but this should be fast enough for the majority of home users. The 600 dpi printing resolution is also enhanced for sharper print quality.
High costs for printer ink are not a concern, as HP 693 ink cartridges are very inexpensive. DeskWriter 693 ink cartridges have fairly large capacities, which mean a low cost per page for the user. Using third-party compatible DeskWriter 693 ink will save even more over the more expensive OEM versions.
For efficient and cost-effective printing, the HP 693 is an excellent choice. Its speeds are a little slow, but its quality output and affordable price add great value, and inexpensive HP 693 ink will keep operating costs down for the life of the machine.
