Conclusion: Where the Deskjet 6980 really shines is in its output quality. Serif and sans-serif fonts were readable even at tiny sizes (the inkjet's 4-point text was a close match for the laser). Our Acrobat document showed sharp text and vivid colors, and our PowerPoint slides showed no bleeding edges with adjacent color fields, even maintaining thin white hairlines against a dark blue background. If the 6980 had stopped with excellent office output, we would have been satisfied.
Excerpt: The Deskjet 6980 is HP's latest inkjet for small businesses and home offices. At first glance, you can see that it hasn't been designed specifically for home users wanting to print holiday snaps. There's no LCD screen and no card reader, so printing directly from a camera's memory card isn't an option. In addition, you only get four inks as standard, whereas most photo printers use six.
