Summary: II owned one of these printers for 6 years that I paid under one hundred when it was first launched, I saw one on sale NEW for $29 a month after I bought it and decided to pick up a second one because the ink cartridges cost that much. It pretty much got lost in storage.
Summary: HP makes good products in my experience, and this printer has been fine, overall. For those who run Linux, ...well, I'm no expert but I was able to get this printer working without too much hassle; at least HP supports an alternative to the operating system monopoly.
Summary: This printer is a good companion to my HP DJ 9800 large format printer (11" x 17") as they use the same print cartridges which was my primary reason for selecting this model. The 2nd point was the potential speed in both B & W and color.
HP Deskjet 6940 printer has no factory Windows 7 driver, and TIPS...!

Summary: HP has not made a full featured factory driver for the 6940 (Complain to support, and maybe...?!). Win 7 auto-installs a generic driver that works ok for basic printing "only". This prints High Quality, and I'd definitely recommend getting it! All-in-one printers, are a waste of money for most!
Summary: The reason I selected this printer is for the fact that the paper is enclosed in a covered area rather than just being left out open on a paper-feed tray. This helps keep the paper from becoming damaged by having the edges bent which would cause paper jams or the paper becoming dirty.
Summary: This is one quality "Photo" printer! It will handel heavy duty paper. Whats weird is it will also grab 2 or 3 sheets of regular paper. I have been amazed and people who I have givem them too think they are real photographs. Also has special "ink" for doing just photo's.
