The advantage of doing less scanner, copier and entire those additional characteristics is that it maintains the cost of your printer down, and the Deskjet 1000’s recent cost is difficult to beat if you are on a tight budget. Now despite the less cost the Deskjet 1000 really functions pretty good.
Text quality is so good, with smoothly elaborated text that would give a more costly laser printer a function for its money. The print velocity was fairly good also – right on HP’s estimate of 5.5 pages each min. Coloured files were slightly slower at 3ppm, but that even creates it a cope with for many of its more costly rivals.
Picture output on plain paper showed few so slight signs of banding, but was not a trouble when utilizing the picture papers planned for this intention. However, the 100 seconds printing time for a 4x6in postcard print creates it clear that the Deskjet is actually just desirable for occasional picture prints.
That effect is confirmed through the Deskjet’s functioning prices. HP’s ink cartridges price roughly the similar as those of its rivals, but the page yields for those cartridges are decidedly under average – less than 200 pages for easy black and white files – and that pushes the printing prices up to near 7p each page for black and white, and 17p each page for colour files. To be fair, HP does sell ‘XL’ cartridges and value packs that can cut those prices considerably, but it is clear that the Deskjet 1000 is actually only purpose for home users with so light printing needs.
Needless to say, as good as being a individual function inkjet printer, the Deskjet 1000 has neither Wi-Fi nor a memory card port for printing pictures direct from a digital camera.
