HP Officejet Pro 6830 e-All-in-One Printer

 

The HP Officejet Pro 6830 e-All-in-One Printer can serve nicely as a shared multifunction printer in a micro office or as a personal printer in any size office.

Duplexer for two-sided printing. Automatic document feeder. Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and Wireless Direct. Prints through the cloud.

Only one paper tray, with no option to add more.

If you care more about speed than output quality, you'll probably be better off with the Epson WF-3520. And if you want both speed and heavier duty printing, check out the HP Officejet Pro 8610, which offers both faster speed and a higher monthly duty...

HP Officejet Pro 6830

 

Most printer makers have two ranges of inkjet printers running in parallel, one aimed at the home photography enthusiast and the other at small and home-office customers (SOHO). HP's Officejet Pro 6830 is a mid-range printer in the latter category and...

Good turn of speed ; Eligible for Instant Ink ; Front panel USB

Very noisy ADF feed ; Single paper tray ; Slow duplex print

The HP Officejet Pro 6830 is a good, general-purpose, SOHO inkjet all-in-one. It’s neatly designed and prints fast, though print quality isn’t quite up to HP’s normal standard. It’s versatile connection options make it a good machine for a wide variety...

HP OfficeJet Pro 6830 e-All-in-One review

 

Cheap colour all-in-one for the small business, sadly handicapped by poor paper handling

Robust inkjet engine with automatic duplexer and high page duty cycle ; First business inkjet to work with HP's Instant Ink service ; 1200dpi scanner with automatic document feeder

Single paper tray with no bypass feeder ; Printed documents ejected on top of sole paper tray ; Single-sided scanning only

A very quick colour all-in-one bristling with print, copy, scan and mobile printing options the Officejet Pro 6830 is also very affordable, especially if you opt for the pay-per-page Instant Ink service. Poor paper handling, however, lets the side down...

HP OfficeJet Pro 6830 and Instant Ink review

 

Priced at just £129, the OfficeJet Pro 6830 printer is certainly good value for money, providing a 1200x600dpi printer, 1200x1200dpi scanner and copier, and fax machine. It includes USB, wifi and Ethernet connectivity, and supports Apple's AirPrint for...

Any attempt to reduce the cost of running a printer is obviously welcome, but you need to think carefully about your printing needs before signing up for the Instant Ink service. If you have light printing needs then you may well find that you're...

HP OfficeJet Pro 6830e All In One

 

This is actually a multi-function device as not only does it print, scan, copy but it also has fax. HP call it an All In One so that is why I must also. The OfficeJet series are designed for office use but assuming the slate grey colour passes the...

The HP 6830 Officejet Pro All-in-One Printer measures 43x41x21cm these figures are with leads inserted in the rear but you will need a little extra space above if you use the flatbed rather than the sheet feed to scan or copy. While you can purchase...

With fully loaded connectivity options, automatic paper handling features and good quality printing, this Jack is suited for variety of environments and not just office.

The HP Officejet Pro 6830 is a very efficient and cost effective printer suitable for home or small and medium businesses/offices. You will not get the speed of a Laserjet but it’s fitted with features no Inkjet printer offers at the price. Apart from...
