Hewlett-Packard’s 940C printer integrates high-quality printing with a space-saving style that’s preferably matched for little work areas. Weighing in at less than 20 pounds, it fits comfortably into any 18-by-10-inch area and links easily to your PC or Macintosh by means of either standard or USB connection.

Supplying both impressive information and economic use of consumables, this thermal inkjet quickly makes its keep in the home office. Color prints are churned out at approximately 10 pages per minute, with a totally filled 2,400 x 1,200 dpi resolution. Monochrome print jobs are processed at up to 12 pages per minute and get a letter-perfect 600 dpi resolution. The 940C input tray manages 100 sheets of 20-pound paper in letter and legal sizes. Additional paper-handling options consist of all kinds of photo paper, stickers, index cards, and envelopes.

With easy one-touch operation and clear onscreen windows to browse you through the printing procedure, everyone in the family can use this sturdily built machine. Hewlett-Packard includes a 90-day service warranty on parts and labor.

 

We’ve had this printer for 3 weeks, and it did eat paper and printed unevenly until we discovered that a small door on the back, used to clear paper jams, was not fully closed. Going to HP’s website, we learned that the paper guides must be snug and that it works best with stacks of photo paper, rather than 1-2 sheets of photo paper placed on a previous stack of plain paper. We have not had problems with paper feeds since.
Overall, this printer is a fantastic value and provides the best bang for the buck you can get. The photo quality is indistinguishable from a ‘real’ photo. This, however, is dependent on the quality of the photo, as well as the paper used (we have had excellent results with HP’s Premium Glossy paper). If the focus of the picture is slightly off, the print will look awful. The photos will look only as good as the original pictures. The plain paper text printing is surprisingly good as well, even in draft mode. Also, the print heads are part of the ink cartridges. This means that they are replaced when you replace cartridges and require no cleaning and less maintenance. As we’ve discoverd, replacing print heads can be expensive.
Pros:
* True photo quality
* Excellent plain paper text printing
* Non-photo printing is fast
* Separate color & black ink cartridges
* Printing heads are part of ink cartridges
Cons:
* Photo printing is not that fast, but the quality is worth it
* A little bulky, but all inkjets are like that
