HP 6840

Alexandros P., Newegg
8 April 2006
  • Summary: good product in general, very happy with wi-fi
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: -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 wi-fi router, except for the first time. I had ...

  • Pros: Fast printer once you get the data to it. Print quality is exelent. No interest in Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: Does not have an LPT port as advertised. As a result, data to the printer is slow (USB Serial). Overall, my old HP 1120C is faster at printing.

Some bad qualities

Chad M., Newegg
30 January 2006
  • Summary: If it didn't have the faulty power savings mode, it would be a great printer for the money.
  • Pros: Good print quality. Very fast for an Ink Jet.
  • Cons: After 30 minutes of idle, it switches off. It will not re-awaken when a print job is sent to it. HP calls this a "feature" that cannot be toggled off.

Good printing and good wifi ability

Todd O., Newegg
12 December 2005
  • Summary: To the person below who wrote 64bit WEP only, reread your instruction manual or configure your router correctly as it works just fine with WPA and WEP 128bit.
  • Pros: Printer was easy to setup and configure. The WiFi portion is WEP (64 and 128bit compatible, as well as WPA. Very fast printing, even in color. Great photo quality on photo paper...and that is without the Photo Cartridge installed. Cannot wait to see what it looks like with!
  • Cons: None (So far)

Great printer period.

Anonymous, Newegg
11 December 2005
  • Summary: I've seen HP Deskjet printers slowly progress since buying my first one back in 1996. They have come a long way since then adding many features that make printing and maintaining a printer even easier for their customers.
  • Pros: Fast priting even in best quality mode. Wireless takes only 5 minutes to setup, installing the cartridges can't get any easier. Cartridges are cheap too!
  • Cons: None so far. I gathered research for over a week on this printer before buying it and everyone kept saying the printer quality was OK. Please, what do you expect. Buy this printer if your like me and printer mix CD covers for your friends, mail letters every once in a while, and print out digital...

  • Summary: Very fast and has a nice look to it. My computer couldn't find it automatically, so I had to input it by IP and it works fine now. Other than that install was very easy.
