Not too long ago, the idea of purchasing an all-in-one inkjet printer for as little as the HP Deskjet F4294 costs would have been unbelievable. Speeds can be a bit slow at anything but the lowest quality settings, and heavy use could result in spending a lot on Deskjet F4294 printer ink, but for such a low purchase price, it still has a lot of appeal.
The F4294 is rated for up to 26 pages per minute, but only at its fastest setting, which reduces the quality. The design is a little on the flimsy side, which should be expected for such an inexpensive device, but its size should be a good fit for home users, measuring 6.4x17.2x11.4 inches at a weight of only 10 pounds.
The control panel doesn't have the ability to preview images, and there are no memory card slots of PictBridge port, but scanning supports a resolution of up to 1200x2400 dpi, and features like a resize-to-fit button can make copying photos of different sizes easier. A print cancel button on the panel can also help save paper and conserve HP F4294 printer ink.
It could be a bit unsettling for some buyers to spend more on replacing HP F4294 ink cartridges than they did on the machine. As an alternative to OEM prices, some third-party resellers offer remanufactured HP F4294 ink, and "XL" versions of Deskjet F4294 ink cartridges with higher capacities than the standard versions can really help lower the cost per page.
Buyers may not expect a lot from an all-in-one inkjet printer as affordable as the Deskjet F4294, but it actually has a lot to offer. While it won't give the speed or output quality of more expensive models, it should work quite well for low-volume home use.
