The HP Deskjet 948c is a color inkjet printer with a basic design that isn't particularly flashy, and it doesn't have a lot of extra features to make it stand out from the crowd. What it does offer is solid printing speeds of up to 10 pages per minute for color and 12 pages per minute for monochrome prints. It also has an affordable price tag that should suit home users on a budget, though OEM HP 948c printer ink is a bit expensive to replace.
The two-tone gray exterior of the machine isn't particularly inspiring, but the curved lines and compact size allow it to blend in with its surroundings. It measures 7.7x17.3x9.8 inches and weighs 12.6 pounds. It includes USB and parallel ports and support for both Windows and Mac platforms for versatility.
The input paper capacity is roomier than expected, at 100 sheets maximum, and the unit supports a wide range of media types that include index cards, transparencies, labels, photo paper and more. Reviews have shown photo quality using color Deskjet 948c ink to be very detailed, with dark shadows. Even plain paper prints were noted to be excellent, with crisp details.
Prices for HP 948c ink cartridges are where the unit loses a few points. The OEM Deskjet 948c ink cartridges are pricier than many other models in its class. Users can still get good value by choosing remanufactured HP 948c printer ink at a much lower cost, however, without sacrificing quality.
While the HP 948c lacks a few extras like an LCD screen and wireless support, it is a solid color inkjet that will serve the needs of home users quite well. As long as users can manage its operating costs by using inexpensive alternatives, it is a good value for low-volume printing needs.
