HP Officejet 6100 ePrinter

 

The HP Officejet 6100 ePrinter inkjet offers fast speed, ample paper capacity, and a low price.

Fast for both business applications and photos. Ample paper capacity. Ethernet and WiFi. Prints through the cloud.

No manual feed tray. Have to swap out the paper in the tray to print on a different paper stock.

HP Officejet 6100

 

HP's Officejet 6100 is a single-function printer at a multifunction price. It does have some redeeming features, though.

ePrint remote printing, AirPrint and HP Mobile wireless printing, Smear and water-resistant inks

No duplex print, No LCD display, External power supply

Keep Looking

 

I can't believe they are still selling this flawed machine. When they found it caused damage to print heads to print just black without all the color cartridges, they just disabled the function so customers have to keep buying color cartridges and it...

Prints well, good print quality

Can't print in black ink only (must have ink in all color cartridges to work at all), Uses ink ridiculously fast. Ink is Expensive. You'll spend twice the price of this printer in two months on ink alone.

Great Little Inexpensive Printer

 

Purchased this printer to connect to a laboratory computer for printing of measurement results. Works great. Plenty fast. Only issue is that the heads are not part of the cartridges so if you do not use this printer frequently they will clog and cannot...

For a low end printer very nice

 

I have installed 17 of these in the past few months for clients in the matter of minutes. USB install 7 mins, Wireless setup about 15 mins. If you are looking for high volume printing get a laser printer not a thermal ink one. Over all Cheap, easy...

Easy setup, cheap ink that last just like it says per cartridge. The High Yield cartridge last about 2 reams of paper under normal use (1000 pages)

None yet after installing 17 of these for clients in small offices. High quality pictures eat up color ink a bit faster
