Wireless printing works 1% of the time; drinks ink by the gallon; scanning software is worse than useless

Summary: This is SUCH a frustrating printer. I have lost count of the number of times I have reinstalled the ludicrously bloated HP drivers for this piece of junk. It will print wirelessly if there's a J in the month and the wind is blowing from the south-west. Maybe. Well, probably not. If you accept that this is NOT a wireless device, then you'll be a lot happier.
Summary: Very light use! jet nozzles jammed! HP say we can pay to have it repaired, which costs nearly the asking price again. I will take great pleasure hurling the thing into a skip, and will henceforth avoid HP like the plague
Summary: It seems everybody has a different problem with this printer....mine is the fact that it is more "useless" than "wireless". I can hold it up to my router, point to it and shout at it, but unfortunately all of this is in vain. Inks run out quick, but i can replace those. Paper tray is flimsy, well just be careful with it. Printer is large, well just hide it. Printing is noisy, well wear ear plugs.
Summary: My warranty ran out exactly 1 month and 6 days ago. Here is the tale of woe that occurred with this printer: While at first the printer worked fine, I have just been on a four hour hell ride trying to fix it. Constant paper jams eventually leading to a non-stop 'turn off and on again error' that I fixed by sheer luck has left me in a state where I need the "set-up" cartridges that came with the printer or my printer will not work - PLEASE NOTE HP do not tell you you need...
Summary: I bought this printer as I just started university and needed a printer fast. Well, it seemed that the start-up cartridges lasted for a decent while, but I bought new ink and its finished after printing barely anything! This printer eats cartridges like mad! Another annoyingly cumbersome thing is you have to assist it to print. It will not take papers by itself, and you have to feed the bloody machine papers or it will groan and squeak.
Summary: Yes, it has all the nice features that other people have written about, but it also has the bad features, such as the stupid flimsy paper tray. All this would be OK for low-volume domestic use, but the worst thing is that having had it almost exactly one year to the day, the black ink just stopped printing.
Summary: This is one of the worst buys I've ever made. The printer is large, heavy and cumbersome. It squeaks and is very loud when printing and it is easy to jam but a pig to clear. My main gripe is the stupid, flimsy paper tray - holds about 50 sheets and when the printed copies come out they spill off over the floor. It comes with "set up" ink cartridges that are not even full. I bought it in a hurry as my previous machine expired the day before a long, urgent job.
Summary: Printing anything with more than 1 page is an absolute nightmare with this thing, because every time you try to print it just goes "Out of paper" no matter how carefully you try to load the tray or how many sheets you use. You literally have to push the sheets in, and then they have a very good chance of getting jammed inside the machine. The ink consumption is also something incredible, after a few dozen pages of fighting with the paper feed mechanism you're out of ink.
Why are manufacturers allowed to give one year guarantees on printers for home use?

Summary: My deskjet 3070A was easy to set up, easy to use and printed good quality documents/photos. However, despite very light usage and even several weeks of not being used, exactly 14 months after purchase we started having probllems. Like others we thought we had run out of ink (I thought the lack of use might have caused the cartridges to dry out) but now discover that the printer is faulty. It is so frustrating that guarantees are not a standard 3 years for domestic use.
Summary: Der HP Deskjet 3070A funktionierte zwar 21 Monate zufriedenstellend, hat aber jetzt den Geist aufgegeben. Die LED am Netzanschluss leuchtet zwar noch, aber das Gerät lässt sich nicht mehr einschalten. Meine Anfrage im HP-Forum waren ergebnislos - "Andere Steckdose verwenden, wenn das nicht hilft, ist das Gerät defekt".
