HP Deskjet 6840

 

We liked the speed and the wireless capabilities of this inkjet, but its print quality left us cold.

Built-in Wi-Fi networking, Produces good-looking photos

Struggled to produce high-quality text

If you're already committed to Wi-Fi, the HP Deskjet 6840 makes it easy to add a printer that multiple users can share. You get good-looking photos, but plain paper documents disappoint.

0322 HP Deskjet 6840

 

Ready for a wired or Wi-Fi network, the HP Deskjet 6840 handles text and photos well for a small business or a home.

Consistently good print quality; built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet capability; additional duplexer and paper tray available.

Clumsily designed output tray; must-have business extras hike up the price.

The low-key design of the Deskjet 6840 hides a solid performer that will briskly churn out text, graphics, and photos for up to five networked PCs.

HP Deskjet 6840 Color Inkjet Printer

 

With both Ethernet and 802.11g built in, the HP Deskjet 6840 is fully network ready.

Exceptionally fast for an ink jet. Output quality ranges from good to very good. Built-in Ethernet and 802.11g networking. Direct printing from cameras.

For best quality, you need to change cartridges to match the output, swapping between black, photo color, and photo gray inks.

HP DeskJet 6840

 

The Deskjet 6840 is a super general-purpose inkjet with lots of high-end printing and connection options.

Wired and wireless network connectivity ; excellent text prints

Back of photo paper has unpleasant texture

The 6840 ships with two ink cartridges: one black and one tricolor cartridge. If you'd like to print photos with six colors, the black cartridge can be swapped for the tricolor photo-ink cartridge containing black, light magenta and light cyan. The...

HP 6840

 

good product in general, very happy with wi-fi

wi-fi (64/128bit WAP), easy network setup, fast printer, printing quality is ok, looks good and.. there is actually a driver for xp 64

problems with xp 64: no driver in the cd, there is a 64-bit driver in HP website, but it doesnt include wi-fi setup. Either use another machine to setup wi-fi on the printer, or try the printer's web interface ; the printer couldnt get an ip from my...

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Great wireless printer, but subpar photos

 

I bought this first because my old HP 722 was not USB compatable. I bought a new laptop (Toshibe F25-AV205- read my review) and my printer would not work. I figured since I had a laptop and could work anywhere in the house, why tie myself to a printer...

Wireless freedom, separate bw cartridge from color cartridge

photo quality (could be my bad setting), customer service

Consumer review (epinions.com)

If you don't need wireless, look elsewhere

 

I bought this printer when it first became available only because of it's wireless capability. I thought, "wow, a wireless printer...what a great concept!", and since I needed a photo printer that would also be able to print color documents, it was an ...

Wireless feature of printer is wonderful if you can set it up

Par quality of photos, cumbersome set up of wireless, permanent paper tray
