A Review of the HP Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer
Printers can be found in a wide variety of makes, models and types meant for many different tasks, but for those who are looking for a relatively inexpensive system that will function in a home-office or small office environment and will offer the leisure of wireless connection, Hewlitt-Packard has come through for you. For less than one-hundred twenty dollars before taxes, you can purchase the HP Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer. While this cannot necessarily brag the same type consistency of laser printers, it can boast a competitive print speed, superior color-quality and many of the other office essentials that are now sought out in printers.
Weighing in at a mere 12.1 pounds, this beauty can turn out black and white pages at thirty-two per minute and thirty-one full-color pages per minute. Plus, with the special ColorLok technology, the quality is sure to reach your client without the embarrassment of smudges and smears. It offers a photo quality that inkjets are known and loved for, plus black and white quality equivalent to the laser printers that are more expensive and fall short in other venues. Even at these qualities, the printer maintains respectable print speeds and can print two-hundred fifty sheets before needing a paper refill. The ink is stored and delivered by a four-cartridge system. The black cartridge will cost you in the neighborhood of $19.99 to replace (420pg), while each of the three color cartridges come in at $9.99. So, for fewer than fifty dollars before tax, you can replace the entire ink set and be set up to run approximately 420 black and white pages and 300 in color.
If you wanted to save in the initial cost, you might consider purchasing the nearly identical HP Officejet 6000. However, for office use, the wireless version is superior for its WiFi compatibility, as well as its ability to run two-sided prints via the automatic duplex setting. For the additional thirty dollars, these features are well worth the investment for most small businesses. Savings can also be achieved by purchasing the remanufactured ink, rather than springing for the Hewlett-Packard name. Despite the claims by manufactures, buying "no-name" ink does represent a tremendous savings over the life of a printer. Hewlett-Packard also advertises a color image quality that reaches 4800 x 1200 dots per inch, however, most customer reviews will dispute this claim, arguing that the color image quality is perhaps the one great downfall of the product, not able to compete with printers designed for photo printing. However, despite a slightly displeasing operating expense (something that is complained about regardless of the printer make) and a photo quality that falls short of Kodak, this printer will not let the buyer down.
Although this printer is probably not the best one for the photographer looking to print high-quality photographs, it is undoubtedly an excellent pick for a small office that requires high-speed reliability, two-sided printing capability, and a color quality that surpasses any laser printer. For general documents, marketing material, and presentations, the Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet 6000 Wireless Printer is a small business's savior and it is equipped to do the job for several computers without the mess of a wired network. Undoubtedly, the investment is well-worth it.
