Available for $80-$100, the HP Photosmart C4683 is an all-in-one printer that offers some unique functions. However, features like high-priced standard tanks of printer ink and few paper handling options may overshadow this unit's cheap price. This multifunction inkjet machine has the capacity for basic low-volume output rates, making it suitable for only personal use
As previously mentioned, using standard tanks of printer ink for this device can be a big waste of money for consumers. Fortunately, high-yielding black HP C4683 ink cartridges that are available last a maximum of 600 pages, a good alternative for users with larger-output needs. Conveniently, high-yielding tricolor Photosmart C4683 ink cartridges are also available and last about 450 sheets.
This device prints black HP C4683 ink as fast as 29 pages per minute and color at 23 pages per minute. A maximum color and black Photosmart C4683 ink resolution of 4800x1200 dpi results in exceptional quality text and graphic documents. Using color HP C4683 ink, full 10x15 photos can print in as fast as 29 seconds.
The C4683's control panel is one of its best features. It has a 1.5-inch LCD screen that displays a full color preview of documents and pictures. Another helpful feature is HP's Solution Center Software, which loads quickly during initial installation and provides an interface for printer status. This inkjet unit, however, lacks an output tray. As documents print, they land on top of the 80-sheet input tray, which can be a detriment to organization.
Despite this problematic feature, the HP Photosmart C4683 is a competent multifunction home and personal device. Its high-quality color documents and photos as well as its printing, scanning and copying features all come at a low retail price that's fair and affordable for consumers.
