Hewlett-Packard's OfficeJet 6110 provides almost everything a small office might need in one machine.
Includes Printer with Black and Colour Cartridges, plus two unopened Black cartridges, an one extra colour cartridige
The OfficeJet 6110 integrates an inkjet printer, a color scanner, a 35-page automatic document feeder (ADF), a copier, and a fax-modem. And unlike most multifunction printers we've seen, it's even Macintosh compatible.
The control panel's optimum LCD viewing angle changes whether you're standing or sitting.
With its battleship-gray scanner lid and matte dark-gray base, the HP OfficeJet 6110 is pleasantly small for a multifunction printer, measuring only 19.5 inches wide by 15.5 deep by 11.8 inches high. Installing the OfficeJet 6110 is a breeze: simply insert the CD and watch it grind for a while, then plug the USB cable (not included) into the printer when instructed.
The OfficeJet 6110's printer handles letter- or legal-size paper. Despite the A4-size scanner glass, the automatic document feeder actually scans, faxes, and copies up to legal-size documents.
Dual telephone jacks on the back side allow you to daisy-chain the fax-modem with an answering machine. The OfficeJet 6110 distinguishes between fax and voice calls, routing them accordingly.
Like any standalone fax machine, this OfficeJet includes a telephone keypad to enter and store fax numbers. You can use the keypad to spell out names associated with the numbers, retain up to 75 speed-dial numbers, and create 20 groups of numbers in memory for broadcast faxing. You can scan a fax and postpone sending it until lower night or weekend telephone rates are in effect; store incoming faxes in memory if the printer runs out of paper; and detect distinctive ring patterns. In a nice extra, HP set aside six button labels for the OfficeJet 6110's one-touch speed dials.
The copy function collates multiple copies of black ink or color documents; reduces an image and prints it several times on one page; or reduces each set of two pages in the document feeder to print side by side on one page. It also shifts the margin to make room for a binder or three-hole punch. Mac users will appreciate the scanner's ability to export images in 48-bit color.
The included software offers tools for working with scanned photos. HP Director, a desktop control app, configures the scanner, runs the automatic document feeder, and opens and prints scanned image files. HP Director includes HP Creative Printing, an application for producing wallet-size copies, stickers, T-shirt transfers, banners, and other special jobs. HP Photo Print, an image-editing application, has fairly deep tools for cropping, correcting exposure and color, and so on. From within Photo Print, jump to a separate application called HP Image Editor, with additional features such as red-eye removal and the ability to superimpose text labels and titles. Or branch off to HP Album Printing, which provides a big assortment of malleable photo-album templates. We were impressed by how easy it is to produce competent photo documents by moving among the applications within HP Director. HP also includes ReadIris Pro 7.5, a full-featured OCR package that converts paper text into computer files.
For ordinary printing, the OfficeJet 6110 uses two cartridges: one black and one tricolor (with cyan, magenta, and yellow). For printing high-quality photos. It automatically detects cartridge changes and realigns its heads to simplify the switching task.
It prints high-resolution glossy photos in a reasonable 5.1 minutes, and it copies color documents at a rather zippy 8.4 pages per minute.
The printing is excellent quality in both grayscale and full colour.
