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: Having previously owned an Epson 780 (wow, what a loud printer) I decided to go back to HP and I was not dissapointed. Photo print quality (at 2400x1200) is wonderful -- bright, accurate colors with excellent shadow detail. HP's print driver software allows you to edit colors and levels but this is best done in Photoshop or other photo editing software. Also, it's very quiet (a consideration when you're the only one up late printing).
Summary: The HP Deskjet is an oustanding printer for the money! I've shopped for weeks checking reviews comparing printing qaulity and price. I could not find a better quality photo printer in it's price range! Compare Prices and quality output at any store and you will find the same for yourself! Contrary to other feedback here, I have had no trouble at all with paper jams.
Summary: What I like about the HP Deskjet 940c: Printed output looks terrific, and it’s fast (more detail below). It’s very quiet. It has a Cancel Printing button on the printer console that does indeed immediately abort the current printing job, a very nice feature. It has an ink level display that can be viewed onscreen in the HP software as well as ink level warning lights on the console. Envelopes are not wrinkled running through the printer (a problem with some older HPs).
