The HP Deskjet 934c should mainly appeal to home and small office users who want a personal inkjet printer and who value high-quality output. It isn't particularly fast, at up to 9 pages per minute for black and 7.5 pages for color, but its 2400 dpi mode produces excellent prints. Users may find OEM HP 934c printer ink expensive, but alternatives are available.
The 934c is both compact and lightweight, which is good news for home users. It weighs only 12.6 pounds without the Deskjet 934c ink installed, and it measures 7.72x17.32x15.76 inches. The front tray even folds up against the machine for easy storage. Those who share a desk will appreciate this ability, especially if they only use it for occasional printing.
The unit can connect via parallel or USB, but does not include any type of network sharing. Its limited 4 MB of RAM could mean slowdowns when printing complex documents or photos, and it is not upgradeable. The 100-sheet input tray should be a decent fit for average users, and many media types are supported, including photo paper, envelopes, labels, and more. The maximum monthly duty cycle is only 2,000 pages, however, so higher-volume users need not apply.
The machine utilizes one black HP 934c ink cartridge and one tricolor supply. Replacing Deskjet 934c ink cartridges tends to get expensive, especially when using OEM versions. Remanufactured HP 934c ink is available from third-party vendors for less than half the price, however, so it is possible to bring the cost per page down considerably.
It's certainly not the smallest or the fastest in its class, but the Deskjet 934c offers better output quality than many comparable models, and its upfront price is quite affordable. As long as users seek alternatives for printer ink, this inkjet printer is an excellent long-term value.
