Worst printer I've ever had

Brenda Terry-Hahn, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this printer new from Walmart, and it has NEVER operated consistently properly. It acts like it has PMS on steroids! It gives wrong error messages and refuses to perform, then turns around and performs perfectly -- briefly. Its software is full of bugs and will not always recognize my computer. The computer also often reads the printer as offline or unavailable when it is actually sitting happily waiting for instructions. It is a MESS. Save your money!!

this product as stated comes with nothing

kngpn1 "regular customer", Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: It states that you can go online to get the program. But most websites want to download some things on my computer. I found one that I can buy it from. So I order it from them. I should have bought a new one in the first place that includes everything.

Don't buy this

jiraf, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: I've had multiple HP inkjet printers in the past, and they've all worked well. I got this one last year, but my old printer was still working well, so I didn't use it until my old printer broke down this year. This is absolutely a piece of junk, the ink runs out very quickly, replacement ink cartridges do not work even though they are original, new HP cartridges. On top of that, the wireless connectivity is a joke, I can never get it to work. Avoid at all cost!

Disappointed

choyduk, Amazon
2 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this printer for my wife and she only used it a couple times and it went sour. Problem is it was already out of warranty. Up til now my computer equipment has been HP but this has made me have to seriously consider other brand in the future.

Don't buy one!

Amazon Customer "Questions Authority", Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: First time I did not love an HP printer ... now have another coming, but this one just did not make it here at our home office. Hate to say it because all other HP printers have been fabulous ... this one had to be dropped on it's head at birth.

Eprint glitchy and software did not install on Windows XP

in Cali, Amazon
18 September 2013
  • Summary: We've had this printer for over three years now and I have wished many times that we had gone with something else. When it works, it works well, but trying to get it to receive print jobs has been an ongoing nightmare. The ongoing problem is that it will show that the "eprint" status is "On" in the menu, but the light next to the eprint symbol on the panel will be off, indicating that it is not on and it will not print emailed jobs when this happens.

Disgustingly bad, just the absolute worst

Beej, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • Summary: I have spent so many hours trying to reason with this printer-scanner. I've owned it for almost two years. It hasn't worked for about a year and a half of those two years. I'll get it all fixed up and it'll print or scan a few jobs, but then somehow, overnight, it just seals itself off from the world. It suddenly refuses to communicate with my computer. It suddenly refuses to do either of the only two things I expect of it.

Never again

anon, Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: I have been taken in by the low price on the product purchase, only to be shocked at how fast the cartridges are used up. They are ridiculously expensive. I am trying a Brother. Mine was a 3515, but appears the same as this one pictured.

Great Features that NEVER WORK

Ryan-Christine, Amazon
8 September 2013
  • Summary: This truly is a product built to look great online, but will become a major pain with every day use. The features (wireless, scanning, printing, and use of web & iOS devices) will only work SOME OF THE TIME. Nearly 1/2 of the print or scan jobs simply will not work, requiring 5 minutes to an hour of work with the printer and associated HP software to fix.
