The Hewlett-Packard HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 is suitable for scanning, copying, faxing and printing, using inkjet technology. Devices of this type have the advantage of lower costs and mostly very good quality for photo printing. In contrast, the printing costs, lifespan and printing speed are usually higher compared to laser printers, which is why inkjet printers are recommended for occasional household use. The device is a laser printer with a 3in1 function. At 61 dB, the noise emission is slightly above the usual value. The device specifies 27 watts as power consumption during operation. These are more common values. The device is moderately heavy and does not take up too much space. A5, A4, A6, C6 and C5 paper can be loaded for printing. With 4 separate ink tanks, the HP OfficeJet works very efficiently. If a printing ink is used up, you can replace it individually. The paper tray can hold up to 225 pages, so you don’t have to refill paper too often. The HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 setup does not do its job very quickly. The print speed is 18 pages/min in black and white and 10 pages/min for color print jobs. The scanning unit, which you can also use to make copies, is a model with a document glass: in addition to individual documents, you can also place a book on the large glass surface and at a speed of 3 pages/min in color or 8 Digitize pages per minute in black and white. With the CIS flatbed and ADF scanner, it is also possible to directly digitize a document with a resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi using the functions scan-to-email, scan-to-PC, and scan-to-USB. Multi-page documents are easy to process because the automatic document feeder (ADF) can feed up to 35 sheets. When copying, a maximum resolution of 600 x 600 dpi is achieved, which is an average value. This HP OfficeJet Pro 6968 can be connected to your home network or other devices via LAN, USB, and WLAN. For wireless connections, it uses the WLAN standards IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g or IEEE 802.11n, with the latter in particular guaranteeing fast data transmission. The operating systems Linux, Mac OS X, Windows 10, Windows 7 and Windows 8 are supported. Print jobs can be triggered using functions such as Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud Print and Mopria.
