HP Deskjet 6540 Color Inkjet Printer

 

The HP Deskjet 6540 Color Inkjet Printer ($149.99 direct) delivers what every ink jet ideally should, but few do. On the one hand, it's a speed demon. On the other, its output quality ranges from just short of very good to just short of excellent....

Exceptional speed for an ink jet. Overall output quality is better than for most ink jets

For best results on different kinds of output, you need to change cartridges continually, choosing black, photo color, or photo gray as appropriate

The HP Deskjet 6540 is faster than most ink jets, and prints better-looking graphics and photos too.

Fast printing in both black and colour

Its colour printing is more expensive than competitors

If blistering print speed is crucial--particularly if you're looking to make regular use of the lower quality settings--you'll find this a stunning printer.

Solid Printer

 

Ink cartridges are smaller than the older HP cartridges. Not sure if this changes the ink lifetime or not...

Fast, high quality inkjet. So Far the printer is flawless. HP makes the best injets around

Not the most sylish looking printer around

Consumer review by:

Nice printer

 

Printer runs very nice and I prefer the look to our old HP printer

Have only been running it a short time, but nothing to complain about so far

Consumer review by:

Great print quality and speed...

 

Great speed, great print quality, seems to use ink sparingly compared to other printers I've owned. Networks easily. Printed manual

HP uses graphics on the front-panel controls instead of words, and the graphics are confusing and not very intuitive. Always having to go back to the manual to "interpret

havent tried it yet

No USB cord.. didnt expect that

Consumer review by:

worth the time and investment

 

Never used Newegg before, but based on their reputation was willing to give them a try due to cost...great choice! The printer arrived quickly and in great shape. Also, the printer is an upgrade from my HP 697 (old & slow, but faithful). It is so much...

The paper tray is a little cumbersome, but not enough to lower the overall rating of the product
