HP Officejet 6000 Wireless


The HP Officejet 6000 Wireless color inkjet printer may dwell in the shadow of its faster cousin, the Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless, but it has nothing to be ashamed of. For a significantly lower price ($120 as of March 29, 2010), it offers good...

Low purchase price ; Inexpensive high-yield inks ; Wireless and automatic duplexing are standard

Yellowish or greenish tinge to photographs

A small-office bargain, this printer offers good performance and plentiful features for the price--and its inks are budget-friendly, too.

HP Officejet 6000


The Officejet 6000 is HP's latest offering in the single-function inkjet printer category. It doesn't have many of the bells and whistles of the popular all-in-ones, but what it lacks in features, it makes up for in print quality and speed. Topping out...

Prints high-quality text and photos, fast print speeds compared with the competition, network ready.

No USB cord included, no LCD makes it difficult to troubleshoot.

We like the simplicity of the HP Officejet 6000 single-function inkjet printer. The print quality meets HP's high standards, and it outputs full color photos at an impressive rate, but its lack of an LCD screen takes some getting used to. Nevertheless,...

HP Officejet 6000 Wireless Printer


Despite offering reasonably high-quality photo output, the Officejet 6000 is clearly designed as an office printer, with none of the photocentric features such as direct printing from cameras or memory cards that you'd expect in a printer meant for the...

Fast. High-quality graphics and photos. Ethernet and WiFi. Built-in duplexer for 2-sided printing

Although text quality is good enough for most small- and home-office needs, it's a touch below par

The HP Officejet 6000 Wireless offers a winning combination of paper handling, fast speed, and reasonably high-quality output overall.

The HP Officejet 6000 Wireless inkjet printer gets high praise from experts who like its comparatively good speed, print quality and low cost. The printer is noted as a viable alternative to laser printers, because it prints better photos than, and...

Review: HP Officejet 6000 Wireless


HP's Officejet 6000 Wireless is an inexpensive four-color ink-jet printer that, as its name implies, has wireless 802.11b/g connectivity.

Setup was easy, despite a veritable avalanche of dialog boxes for setting up the wireless functionality. On a Mac, you must visit the Preferences/Printers dialog box to add the printer manually—a small task, but one that other vendors’ products have...

HP Officejet 6000 Printer Review


Everyday you wake up and you'll get the new of the printers launching by any of the company. There are numerous companies in this sector. But printing is the job that should be done with the great accuracy and excellence as the entire world is now...

The quality of printing is of high quality and has to be as it is the kid of one of the finest quality printers, HP. The speed and the text quality are awesome and it is one of the smartest units the HP can produce

The Company just forgot to put the USB cord after so much desperate efforts of making the marvel!! The LCD would also be a nice device to have with for the betterment of trouble shooting

: It’s the unique device and the qualitative product for the high profile printing quality which only HP can produce!! The ink-jet is the fine quality printer which sharpens the edges of the printing job. The colour performance is also quite splendid. ...

HP Officejet 6000 Wireless


If it weren't so slow, this inexpensive, cost-effective color inkjet would be a great choice for budget-minded small-office and home users with low print-volume needs.

Easy to use; Wi-Fi, network, and USB connectivity; automatic duplexing; inexpensive to buy and operate

Slow setup; noisy; slow print times

On the whole, we like the Officejet 6000 Wireless for small, unimportant print jobs that don’t have to be done in a hurry. But if you need greater speed or higher print quality, or want to use your wireless printer among a shared workgroup, this isn't...

HP Officejet 6000


Although it delivers respectable output quality, we don't recommend this printer if you frequently print photographs or graphic-heavy documents; this printer simply doesn't deliver the high-caliber color prints that many of the other inkjet printers in...

The printer has a high monthly duty cycle and an input-tray capacity of 250 pages, so it can handle demanding print jobs

Lower print resolutions mean this printer is great for printing text documents but falls short with graphics and photos

The HP Officejet 6000 is best suited for printing text at home or in a small office.

HP Officejet 6000 (E609a) inkjet printer


HP's Officejet 6000 is a barebones inkjet printer. Though only $149 at the register, you still get an Ethernet connection along with the standard USB port. Automatic duplex doesn't come as standard but the Officejet 6000's bundled drivers support...

Ethernet connectivity, practical design, excellent quality colour documents, cheap to run ;

Slow print speeds, poor quality at 'normal' setting, ships with starter cartridges ;

For $149, this single-purpose printer is an inexpensive way to print professional documents and marketing materials
