This is a New Review of an Old Printer purchased in '07!

Bootsy, Amazon
26 March 2014
  • Summary: I'm just now reviewing this, simply because I wasn't into reviewing items when I first started using Amazon. Now, I totally get and appreciate Amazon and am going back to review a few neglected items. This printer is great. Sure they all get the job done - and HP probably makes a newer version of this with a different model number but the same guts - but this one has been a war horse. We got it in 2007 and it's still going strong.

Good Overall Printer

  • Summary: Like this for overall printing. Have yet to print many photos and use the photo connectivity. Great wireless but you do need to read instructions thoroughly.

Great wireless printer

L. Bernard, Amazon
17 March 2009
  • Summary: Great set up. We have two laptops and both connected wirelessly by going to 'add printer', choosing the printer and going through the setup. Took two minutes for each. It actually is a better printer than I thought it would be. Not a fast printer, but OK. Also has the smaller cartridges so it doesn't cost as much if you have to replace cartridges if they dry out because or infrequent use.

Excellent Machine!

Wombatclov, Amazon

  • Summary: This is one of the best ink jet printers I have ever owned. It replaced a 5 year old HP that I loved, and simply was warn out. This unit had all the features I was looking for- wireless, duplexing, and extra paper storage. I have had it one year with no problems. The wireless was pretty easy to set up (had to use a wired connection first), and it supports WEP and WPA. The print quality is very good. I don't print a lot of photos, but when I do, they look great.

Disaster printer

  • Summary: I have had, and have fought with, this printer for over 12 months now (system: Dell PC, XP, then Vista Ultimate). I have never been able to get the 6980 lemon to work correctly on either my wireless or ethernet connection. Usually my PC says the printer is "offline." When I finally get it "online" it usually doesnt print, and if it does print, generally stops midway through job for no reason. Also frequent jamming.

  • Summary: Printer works great, but write-up made it sound as though it has internal wi-fi, but it doesn't still neeed to hook router up to it to make it wireless. Kind of defeated my purpose having to purchase another peice of equipment to set it up the way I wanted to.

Great all purpose printer

The Dragon, Amazon
20 October 2007
  • Summary: I have used this printer for about 2 months now. It is really easy to setup and get running either direct connect or via wireless. It is very fast when printing single sided. It is quite a bit slower with double-sided printing mostly because it waits for the 1st side to dry before printing the 2nd side. But it is not too bad if you need 2-sided printing.

HP Deskjet 6980DT Color Printer

K. Stricker, Amazon
9 September 2007
  • Summary: This is a good printer. It is a WORKHORSE. The only issue I have with it is the platform for the paper when it exits does not allow for either a large build up of letter size paper or for more than one legal page to sit until you can get to it. I print a lot of legal sized documents.

HP Deskjet 6980DT Photo Printer

2417cumb, Ebay
6 September 2007
  • Summary: I do not use this printer to print Photos. I use it as standard printer. This printer is a good value for the price. It is a little sensitive to amount of paper in the print trays. The 250-sheet tray is temperamental but very nice to have. I assume that the problem with the 250-sheet tray will be corrected by experience. The duplex feature is a cost saving feature and works well.
