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

Loads of useful built-in hardware including autoduplexer, auto-document feeder, Optical Character Recognition scanner; painless 802.11g wireless setup; excellent quality text, graphic, and photo prints.

No PictBridge support; only three autodial fax buttons; slower than average photo prints.

The HP Officejet J6480 has a lot of built-in features that are rarely found included in a $200 printer. Shoppers looking for an all-inclusive multifunctional unit will be impressed with the robust hardware and rich print quality.

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.

HP Officejet J6480 All-in-One

 

Excellent features for a low price

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.
