HP Deskjet 6540 Review

HardwareCentral
18 February 2005
  • Conclusion: Fast Normal and Normal modes on plain paper were slower -- and very similar to one another, with the one-page letter taking 10 seconds in Fast Normal versus 12 in normal; the 20-page document 132 seconds versus 164; and a six-page Adobe Acrobat PDF file 67 seconds versus 87.
  • Pros: Laser-beating speed and laser-like quality for text- and graphics-intensive documents and proposals; higher duty cycle and lower consumable costs than consumer inkjets
  • Cons: No photo-card slots and not the greatest photo printing; duplexer and second paper tray are costly options

  • Pros: Exceptional speed for an ink jet. Overall output quality is better than for most ink jets.
  • Cons: For best results on different kinds of output, you need to change cartridges continually, choosing black, photo color, or photo gray as appropriate.

  • Pros: Fast printing in both black and colour
  • Cons: Its colour printing is more expensive than competitors
