... When making the choice I weighed the HP840C against two other options at similar prices: The Epson Stylus 670 and Canon’s BJC-1000. The HP840C boasts an impressive maximum resolution of 600x1200 dots per inch and produces very crisp images. High-colour graphics are vibrantly colourful ... Read review

Deskjet 840c

AdvantagesExtremely quick, cheap to run, very good image quality.

DisadvantagesSlightly large footprint, some may prefer bonus software.

"...to me choosing a second HP printer. The control panel allows easy maintenance of the printer including cartridge head cleaning, testing and re-alignment as well as a utility for checking the printer connection or printing a sample page. The re-alignment facility is excellent for ensuring high print quality without wasting ink. Three print qualities can be used: Draft, standard and high. Draft quality is extremely economical on ink and extremely quick ..." Read review

Advantageseconomically priced - good print outs

DisadvantagesCartridges very expensive

"Well, my computer is now 6 months old and boy has it been used.....It came complete with a scanner, speakers, several programmes and a Hewlett Packard Deskjet 840c printer which is what I intend to write about today. At £84.25 this has been a fantastic buy. The printer is compact, neat and extremely quiet when running(making more of a gentle hum than the roaring sound usually associated with a lot of printers). It certainly compares well with the ..." Read review

"...photo), envelopes, transparencies, labels, cards, hp premium media and iron-on transfers. I have primarily used the cheapest A4 paper, transparencies and occasionally photo paper. The print quality has been acceptable on all of these media. The resolution is a claimed 600dpi but this is making use of the HP technology RET. (Resolution Enhancement Technology I believe.) This makes a lower resolution look higher by doing some clever tricks. The effect ..." Read review

"HP Deskjet 840C We had this printer for some years now and I thought I'd write a review about it. When we bought the printer, it cost us €150, which is £100. Now you can buy these printers second hand on Ebay starting at £5 upwards. The DeskJet 840c is made by Hewlett Packard, which is a popular company for printers but they also make cameras, PCs, scanners, etc. The 840c is an ink-jet printer and is meant for personal use and not business use. ..."
