REVIEWS

Both HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 and HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 are mid-range multi-functional inkjet printers designed for small or medium home/office printing, scanning, faxing, and copying needs. These two printers come with the Instant Ink program that can run at competitive running costs.

The print quality of both the printers is excellent. The connectivity options, print and scan functions, and the setup process of these printers are almost the same. But the printing speed of the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 printer is quite faster than HP OfficeJet Pro 6978.

Overall, the HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 and HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 printers are suitable for light or medium printing needs. But if you are someone who’s keen on speed, you can just go for the HP OfficeJet Pro 8025 printer.
