HP OfficeJet J4680 All-in-One

 

HP's OfficeJet J4680 is a $130 (as of August 4, 2008) multifunction color inkjet printer that gives small- and home-office users a reasonable helping of business features at a really low price. Unfortunately, it falls short in speed and long-term economy.

Inexpensive; impressive print quality ; Wireless networking and ADF standard

Copies, scans, and prints photos slowly ; Costly inks

It offers SOHO users a lot of features for the price, but it's slow, and the inks can be costly.

HP officejet J4680 All-in-One Printer Review

 

Over the last couple of years all in Inkjet printers have pushed single function printers out of the market. A multifunction peripheral offers more convenience in less desk space than a separate copier, printer, and scanner, not to mention a huge...

HP Officejet J4680 All-in-One Review and Ratings

 

Home-office users with heavy fax needs should take a close look at the Officejet J4680. Those looking for speed or a better performance-to-feature ratio might want to keep looking.

Excellent text quality ; Includes ADF ; Expansive faxing features

Slow printing ; Slow copying ; Subpar graphics and photo quality

Review: OfficeJet J4680 All-in-One

 

For $130, you might not be surprised to find print, scan, and copy capabilities in HP's OfficeJet J4680 multifunction ink-jet printer. But the J460 also has a built-in fax machine, wireless connectivity, and a 20-sheet auto document feeder.

Setting up the printer was easy enough: just attach the included USB and power cables, install the software and print cartridges, and you’re ready to go. There were also a couple of cool setup features I hadn’t seen before in an HP multifunction...

HP OfficeJet J4680 review

 

HP's OfficeJet J4680 is a £119 inc VAT multifunction colour inkjet printer that gives small- and home-office users a reasonable helping of business features at a really low price.

The HP OfficeJet J4680 might be slow, but it's a nice machine. A small office that doesn't do much printing would probably be happy to have the OfficeJet J4680's feature set in such a compact, low-cost package.

The J460 has a built-in fax machine, wireless connectivity and a 20-sheet auto document feeder

The OfficeJet J4680 is a good all-around multifunction printer. Despite its slow print speeds and a couple of paper jams when using the plain paper we stock in the office, we found it to be a capable printer, scanner, copier, and fax machine. Add in...
