Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    The HP Deskjet 6940 is network ready, has a PictBridge port for PC-free photo printing, is compatible with both Windows and Mac PCs, and is backed by generous support options.

  • THE BAD

    An autoduplexer and a larger input tray will cost you extra, and the HP ink is expensive. If you switch often between document and photo printing, you'll spend a chunk of time changing out ink tanks, too.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    The HP Deskjet 6940 isn't a top-of-the-line inkjet, but with its affordable price, networkability, and decent print quality, it's a good choice for students in a dorm room and budget-conscious home office users.

FANTASTIC Printer...HIGHLY Recommend

You cannot go wrong with this printer....fairly inexpensive, well made...excellent print quality....black text is very close to my laserjet in quality, color is unmatched...I print 4X6 and 8X10 photos and they look STUNNING!! I print out cd labels and they look fabulous. And probably the best thing about this printer is it's speed....it churns out pages VERY quickly...almost as fast as my laserjet, but my laserjet costs 3X as much and doesn't do color. Also to note, the ink cartridges seem to last awhile on this printer...longer than most injets at least, which is also good to know. Probably the only negative thing I could say about this printer is that sometimes when using thicker paper is has a little tough time feeding the paper...sometimes, you have to guide it along...but it is rare.
Overall, a fabulous printer, especially at this price....you can't go wrong.

HP Deskjet 6940 Printer

I had been looking for a printer with a front USB port, so when I saw it on E-Bay I bid on it. I also liked the fact that I could purchase the Two-Sided Printing Accessory and 250 Sheet Tray on E-Bay. I have always had HP Printers, and they have been very easy to install. This 6940 is not as easy, and I used alot of paper in trial and error. It is a little tricky to get some things to print, but when they do print, the output is very good. The appearance of the printer is another reason why I bought it.

Very Satisfied

This is my second Deskjet 6940 InkJet Printer. I purchased the second one to be used in my home office. At work - this is printer has been a work horse! Fast printing - great quality. Easily handles large jobs - not a laser printer in relation to speed - but very satisfied.

Good simple network color printer

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

We have around 16 of these printers in our school. The networking and the setup is pretty straightforward and the unit has a web-based interface you can use to remotely check the ink levels. The color quality is fairly good for the type of printing we do - mostly simple graphics.
It uses two ink cartridges which are fairly expensive if you buy HP, but they are available from other vendors for less. We've tried others but this is about the best for a simple network color printer
