Initial sporadic operation; works with driver download
4 March 2014
Summary: I've upgraded my review from a 1 to 4. Initial problems with messages like "Printer Error" or "Failure to communicate with printer", especially for scan mode, resolved themselves after several reboots. The printer did not come with drivers for OSX 10.8.5, but the ones from the HP site eventually worked well. ([...]).
Summary: For what you pay, this thing works very well. The ink costs more than the printer and the printing isn't the clearest; however, for the price, you can't be the functionality. Wifi option is hard to setup, also this does not work with current ipads etc...
Summary: This is a good printer for the price. My only critic is that the ink cartridges are very expensive and they don't tend to last very long - even the name brand ones. Otherwise, this printer will "do the trick" if you can't afford the more expensive printers on the market.
Summary: I give it four stars because HP sells the ink (XL) for the price of the printer. However it serves my needs well since I can scan and make the occasional copy when required and this is a plus.
Summary: This was a refurb printer I needed for my minimal printing applications. I like that it has separate color and b/w print cartridges. Beware that the printer cable is only about 2 feet long instead of the expected 6-8 feet. I will have to buy a new one.
Summary: Excellent inexpensive printer if your main interest is in printing documents. Ink life is very good, functionality is great.... utilizing on a Wi-Fi network and it performs much better than my more expensive HP and Canon printers using WiFi.
Summary: We have had this printer for almost 2 years and use it for small, infrequent print jobs - like printing a recipe, directions, making copies, occasional scanning. So far it has met our needs and I've only had to replace the black ink cartridge one time. Did not have any problems with the setup and was able to print a test page on the first try. We mainly use it with our desktop and usually the computer and printer have no problem communicating with each other.
