Officejet J6480 All-in-one

 

The HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One color inkjet multifunction printer competes with other midrange MFPs, including Lexmark's X9575 Professional and Dell's 968w--and all offer a similar array of features, including integrated Wi-Fi. The J6480 manages to...

Inexpensive; integrated Wi-Fi Automatic duplexer

Mediocre speed; confusing control panel Confusing control panel

Ink costs are just shy of pricey. A 780-page, high-yield black cartridge costs $30, or 3.8 cents per page; the 520-page, high-yield tricolor cartridge costs $35, or 6.7 cents per page

HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One

 

The HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One ($199 direct) falls into the once-rare but increasingly common category of inexpensive all-in-ones (AIOs) that can serve double duty in the home and home office. Unlike its most direct competition, however, it isn't...

Prints, scans, faxes from PC. Standalone copier and fax. Automatic document feeder. Wired and wireless network support

Slightly subpar text quality. Relatively slow print speed

An attractive choice for home, home office, or both, the HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One raises the bar for what to expect at this price.

The J6480 is a suitable addition to HP's Officejet All-in-One range. Although this multi-function's running costs may exceed some users' budgets, it h...

Wireless functionality, fast printing

Some quality issues, relatively expensive running costs

With the J6480, HP offers home offices a productive and efficient multi-function designed to meet most, if not all, printing and faxing needs. While the running costs may not be the cheapest, this multi-function device should definitely be considered.

Officejet J6480 inkjet multifunction printer

 

In speed tests, the J6480 printed text at a passable 7.3 pages per minute

The HP Officejet J6480 offers a lot of features for the price, but slowness is the primary trade-off. Although HP's ratings in our recent Reliability and Service survey were just average overall, among midrange MFPs this model is still very competitive.

Consumer review by:

"I've had this printer for a long time and love it."

 

I rarely have paper jams. The sensors are usually accurate enough to let me know I need to get more ink. I use duplex printing all the time.

Sometimes my printer doesn't seem to connect to the network wirelessly. After years of ownership, I decided to use a wired connection due to this problem and because I wanted to move it to where the other computers were already located.

Consumer review by:

"Beware- doesn't work w/ non-HP ink, noisy, bad software"

 

This is the first HP printer I ever bought and I will not buy one again. I only got this because the two features mentioned in Pros were not available on the Canons I wanted at the right price.

Duplex printing, WiFi connection.

Does not work with non-HP ink cartridges, HP cartridges are crazy expensive, it makes a lot of noise a lot of the time, the software kinda sucks.
