Great Printer, but you'd better have a new Linksys router!

Hyla's Brook "hylabrook", Amazon
4 January 2010
  • Summary: I was able to get this printer at a good price & liked the wireless idea. But when I opened the box and read the instructions I learned I had to use a router with a "Easy setup" button - i.e. a recent Linksys router. My router is a Netgear and functions very well, thank you. There were alternate network options to set up the wireless access manually, but the instructions were for Windows XP, not Vista. (This a year after Vista was introduced.

GOOD AND EASY

Heather Mason, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer when it first came out. I have a MacG5 and it was super simple to set up. As soon as I turned it on, my mac found the printer over the network, I followed the instructions and let 'er rip. Only complaints are that the inks dry up if you don't use it frequently and the ink cartridge holders are very fragile. Recently one of the cartrige holders snapped and that was it, the whole printer would not work.

Decent printer, but goes through ink FAST

Grendel13, Amazon
24 February 2008
  • Summary: We bought this printer as a combined plain text photo printer. In general, this is a great printer with one major flaw: it goes through ink incredibly fast. Pros: -Wireless: I love this feature! We've set up the printer in an unobtrusive corner of the office, and our laptops can print to it without hassle. -Double-sided (duplex) printing: With the optional adapter, automatic double-sided printing is very convenient.

Great printer...installation not for the faint-of-heart...

T. Nicol, Amazon
20 January 2008
  • Summary: In the end, this printer works fine. I bought it because most reviews rated it as good - even better than the 6988 that replaces it. I didn't want anything fancy, just a reliable printer that would communicate with my wireless router connected to Windows XP (wired and wireless) and Mac OS computers (wired). It does all that fine. The only real problem, as others have said, is that the documentation, instructions, screen shots, etc.

Happy customer except.........

L. Smith "Bama Girl", Amazon
18 December 2007
  • Summary: I am very pleased with the HP DeskJet 6980 Color Printer. The only thing that I was not pleased with was the printer setup. The instructions are not very clear as to what step is needed for installation, you are basically guessing your way through.

A solid printer

Gary Hines, Amazon
2 October 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this printer in July 2007 and so far have no complaints. As others have noted, when this printer springs into action it shakes quite a bit. I have it set up in a printer drawer, so when it rock & rolls it doesn't bother my work on the desktop. Others have also noted that pages are ejected out the side and generally fall on the floor.
