Almost an IT antique printing press

  • Excerpt: The HP Deskjet 720C is an inkjet printer made by HP way back in the mists of time, well 1998, which in computer terms is roughly the same thing. COST Back then it cost £199.99 new (ouch!), I've just done a quick search on ebay, the going rate for one now seems to be £15 plus delivery.
  • Pros: Cheap 2nd hand, reliable, good quality print, kodak photo enhancement
  • Cons: Hard to find even 2nd hand now, original cartridges expensive

  • Excerpt: I've had a variety of printers, from Hewlett Packard to Epson’s to Lexmark’s and back around to H.P., out of all of the printers I’ve tried and tested H.P. printers easily come out top of the list. The HP printers are well made and I’ve found very rarely break, if ever.
  • Pros: A good all rounder
  • Cons: slow

  • Excerpt: The HP deskjet 720c is by far the best printer I have ever owned it now for about a year and a half and I still find that it prints to an extremely good quality. The paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets and the printer cartridges are a braze to fit.
  • Pros: Good quality print outs
  • Cons: the cost of replacing ink catridges

SUPERB

  • Excerpt: I have had my deskjet 720C for about 6 months now and am absolutely delighted with it. Unlike some other less expensive printers the picture quality is far better than I expected. It has a black and colour cartridge, which both seem to last for ages.
  • Pros: Allround excellent
  • Cons: None

Printers how I hate them

kenigma, Ciao
26 February 2001
  • Excerpt: They're a constant source of annoyance and a constant drain on money. That's what I thought before I got the HP 720C. I've always had bad experiences with printers - be it the old Deskjet 320(?) - it's so long ago I've forgotten the number. That used up ink like a stretch limo uses petrol.
  • Pros: Good quality  -  fairly quick, and low running costs .
  • Cons: Not fast enough for regular/professional use

  • Excerpt: This printer is a great all round buy. It costs very little, produces excellent results and works quickly. I have had the 720C for 18 months and have had only changed a cartridge once. This is mainly due to the fact that the econofast mode is suitable for almost all operations.
  • Pros: low running costs, quality, price, easy to use
  • Cons: linux problems, picks up more than one piece of paper at a time occasionally

  • Excerpt: I bought my HP Deskjet 720C printer in June 1998 because I was upgrading from my HP Deskjet 660C as I needed something faster. It is an ideal printer for home and small business use. It does 8ppm black and 4ppm colour (these are in economy mode).
  • Pros: Speed and quietness
  • Cons: None that I can think of

Quality product, quality output

Sorted, Ciao
9 July 2000
  • Excerpt: This printer was bought as a replacement for the 660C, so it had a lot to live up to. The first thing you notice is how quiet the printer is. All you hear is a faint 'swishing' noise when printing on anything but the lowest quality setting. Speaking of quality, it is nothing short of excellent.
  • Pros: Speed, quality, quietness, instructions
  • Cons: Suspect panel quality
