Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 All-In-One Printer Great printer print quality is good it's fast it print's great pictures and the text is easy to read. The only thing is that it is a little loud when printing that is the only negative to this printer. Set up is fast and easy once plugged in set up for wireless printing was as easy as 1,2 and 3. So far after a month it is working great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from low volume user, works great Replaced a 6 year old Officejet PRO 8500. So far the 6978 is a very good successor to that series for my needs.

Date published: 2017-07-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feature laden printer at an affordable price. Had to replace my old HP6500 printer and after some shopping around decided on the 6978 based on several criteria. I needed an all-in-one that fit within the confined area of a slide out shelf in a cabinet. It wouldn't matter how good the printer was if it didn't fit where I needed it to. Second, my preference was for a printer with 4 separate ink cartridges. I just believe I get better economy and print quality with that configuration. Installation was a breeze. Installed the software and followed the prompts. Fast and easy. I love the fact that two sided printing AND scanning is so easy. The scanning becomes such an important feature if you are in the habit of converting all your important documents to digital like I do. No more making copies of one side of the page with multi-page documents (think insurance policies, wills, etc.), then inserting them in the right order, scanning and then reassembling the original and shredding the copied pages. I'll be saving time and trees! Good thinking HP!
