Working Review:

The printer can be programmed to print both sides of a page and has a duty cycle of 15,000 prints, that means that it is cabale of proving 15,000 prints in a month. In terms of speed we got around 4-5 pages per minute for mixed text and graphics documents and up to 10ppm for pure text with the first page typically appearing in around 15 seconds. Printing resolution for Monochrome and color are the same – upto 600 x 1200 dpi. This printer runs on HP Thermal Inkjet printing technology and has wireless connectivity and gives users the ease of getting e-prints.

We all know that a printer is that one machine, which is always ON even when the nation is sleeping. And that only means it continues to consume power24x7, which means higher electricity bills. But this printer goes to sleep after minutes of inactivity and wakes-up within seconds.Less than 17 seconds to be exact. We liked this feature most.

Verdict:

All in one printers are expensive to run but the HP OfficeJet Pro 6830 can produce professional colour documents at up to 50% of the cost of a laser. In addition, it’s a great option to businesses that are on a tight budget. The OfficeJet Pro 6830 has ample of connectivity options plus a full complement of mobile printing and scanning tools. We definitely recommend this printer and give it a big thumbs up.
