Summary: We like the simplicity of the HP Officejet 6000 single-function inkjet printer. The print quality meets HP's high standards, and it outputs full color photos at an impressive rate, but its lack of an LCD screen takes some getting used to. Nevertheless, the HP Officjet 6000 performed well and earns our recommendation as a great single-function printer.
Pros: Prints high-quality text and photos, fast print speeds compared with the competition, network ready.
Cons: No USB cord included, no LCD makes it difficult to troubleshoot.
Conclusion: With paper trays extended, the Officejet takes about 18 by 23 inches of desk space and stands 7 inches tall. Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS X 10.4.11/10.5 users will find setup a matter of dropping a printhead or cartridge carriage into place, then fitting the ink cartridges into it and waiting some 10 minutes for the printer to prime itself and print a calibration page -- the printer is fairly quiet in operation, though it likes to whir and click and recalibrate...
Excerpt: The HP Officejet 6000 line includes two configurations: the 6000 base model and the 6000 Wireless. Both configurations feature fast draft print speeds up to 32 page per minute (ppm) in black and 31 ppm in color, individual ink tanks including a black pigment-based ink, and HP’s improved paper path found on the Officejet Pro series released in March. However, the Officejet 6000 Wireless also features built-in duplexing and embedded wireless connectivity.

Summary: The HP Officejet 6000 inkjet printer won't replace your laser or dedicated photo printer, but it strikes a middle ground between the two. While slow, it can produce professional colour documents to show off your products and services.
Pros: Ethernet connectivity, practical design, excellent quality colour documents, cheap to run
Cons: Slow print speeds, poor quality at 'normal' setting, ships with starter cartridges
Summary: The HP OfficeJet 6000 is one of the bulkier colour inkjet printers we've seen. At 458x389x164mm, it's got quite a large footprint and we weren't completely enamoured with the grey and black casing.
Excerpt: Business inkjets are gaining popularity with home office users, as they're smaller, less complicated and cheaper to run than their laser counterparts. HP's Officejet 6000 is one of the latest and, at £77, it's one of the cheapest, too. It's a basic single-function printer with the addition of a 10/100 Ethernet port.
