I haven't had the need to use a printer at home much over the past few months, however recently the need has arisen much more often, and so I now have a greater appreciation of my printer. I have always been a fan of Hewlett Packard, from their range of computers, which we have at work, right...

Versatile, fast, great quality two-sided printing

somewhat pricey consumables

One of the high quality HP printers around, DeskJet 990cxi is an excellent A4 printing machine I would definitely recommend for either home or small businesses. The print quality is excellent, with crisp and realistic colours (provided the printer is correctly calibrated, of course…), and...

“Fantastic Fotos”

superlative print quality, duplex unit

odd shape!

Ive been through many printers in the last nine or ten years, and all have them have done the job demanded of them (more or less..), so I was interested to see how my latest addition - the HP DeskJet 990Cxi would live up to expectations. A few months ago I purchased a digital camera (having...

None found to date.

Hours...many hours over several days...spent poring over the features, capabilities and benefits of a host of inkjet printers had left me feeling glazed and confused. I had narrowed the choices down a bit, but not much. I was still unsure whether I wanted an A3 printer or whether A4 would be OK...

None

Although I have used many in the past, this is the first inkjet I have actually bought, and I am mightily impressed and being a graphic design professional, I have demanded a lot from this product. The printing iself, using drop-on-demand thermal technology, goes up to a resolution of 2400x1200...

“The Bog's Dollocks”

Fast, reliable, double sided printing

Doesn't make coffee

I've bought two of these for work. They are fast and reliable. Print quality is excellent too. Can't really fault them I'm afraid. Also, they get a great write up in PCPro. Have a look at the review on their website. Another good feature is that it can also print double sided automatically. This...

Reliable, fast, good quality

Can't think of any

Used this printer now for 2 years or so, and never let down by it. good quality picture, it has a very useful print preview so it shows exactly what will be printed. It also has a duplex module, so it saves you paper. Of course the color is a bit boring, grey, but who cares if the prints are...

I bought this printer when they first came out - around 2003 I think. The print quality is excellent. It is quiet, reasonably quick and at first I was very pleased with it. The feature to enable printing on both sides of the page is excellent and has nevr given me a problem. However my enthusiasm...

I stopped counting after 100.

Maybe 1 - not really sure.

Well, what can I say? Probably the best thing I ever did for myself and my money (printerwise). I bought this printer.. hmm, actually I cannot remember when anymore. Anyway, it was many, many years ago... and still an excellent performer. I never thought this workhorse would last for ages despite...
