Summary: Printer was exactly as I expected, practically new condition and worked perfectly. It was shipped quickly and I am very satisfied. In fact, I just ordered another from Solar. I think it was the last refurbished one they had. Sorry.
Summary: Had this over 10 years!! It is the best overall printer I've owned as far as durability/quality. The printer is too expensive now days even used. I paid $150 for this new 10 years ago. You can buy a cheap printer now days for less than $60!! OEM cartridges way too expensive for this printer. Only buy OEM cartrides, refilled ink quality BITES. I always buy expired cartridges now and that saves a lot of money.
Summary: The HP940C inkjet printer is designed for the home or office. It comes in a light gray case shaped like other HP printers. It connects to a computer with either an IEEE 1284 parallel cable (DOS or Windows) or a USB cable (Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP). The black inkjet cartridge is the #15, the tricolor inkjet cartridge is the #78 (replacing the #17 tricolor cartridges used in earlier printers). This printer works well for the average user.
Summary: This is the "Everready Bunny" of the HP inkjet world. It just keeps going and going. This model is new enough to have a USB connection, but old enough to also have the parallel option. It will print up to 600 dpi, which is easily enough for most general use.... and isn't too bad for some photo printing. (Those who want to get serious about photo printing will want a newer model.
Summary: HP printers were the printer to have when they cared about the customers. Now, (their "NEW" printers) it's just bottom line & spareholder driven. They used to offer 25ml of ink for under $30.00, now it's 5ml for $20.00. If you're going to buy an HP printer, go with an old model. HP was a thing of the past (check thier stock price).
Summary: I've had the HP940c for a year now with no problems. The printer installed via USB under Windows XP without a hitch. Photos and text are good quality. I have used multiple pages/page printing and manual duplexing without any hicups. No jams to date. Replacement of catridges is easy. Low cartrides are noted by a dialog box popping up and by lifting the lid to the catridges to see where the cartridges line up with the icons inside the printer.
