Summary: 360meg driver and software, much of it bloatware and spyware. Participation program: watches you, Auto updater: more bloatware, Built in store? Really? The price of this thing is ridiculous considering they GIVE IT AWAY with some computers. You are a fool to purchase this. The quality is actually decent. Good photos, good scans.
Summary: I received this as a birthday present. Supposedly a good deal of research went into its purchase, but seeing how it performs, I'm not sure it was enough. I've barely done any printing with it, partly because most of the time I haven't been able to get the computer and printer to talk to each other.
Summary: Cheap, noisy, clunky, jams often, and has lots of error. Finally had the error that the HP online guide could not fix. Off to the e-recycle bin. Just bought a Canon printer. I will never buy a HP printer again; they have all been awful.
If there were a way to give a zero-star rating I would...

Summary: This has been without a doubt the most troublesome inkjet printer I have ever used in my life. We have had printing issues on Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Mac OSX. Sometimes it won't print at all until you reboot your machine, or uninstall and reinstall the printer from scratch. It has tiny little ink cartridges, and woe be unto he who tries to use a recycled cartridge or refill kit. If you're thinking this printer is a bargain - don't get it!
This printer locks up all the time, won't take photo paper.

Summary: I hate this printer! It locks up all the time. You can't cancel documents. You can't clear them out of print queue, you can't turn it off and back on, you can't unplug it for a while, restart your computer, anything! It's going to print that document no matter what, but it might do it 3 days later, and you can't print anything else until it does. It has a photo setting, but it won't take the photo paper.
Summary: BEWARE!!! This printer *does not work* with Snow Leopard!!!! And the HP customer support is useless because they will not even talk to me unless I pay a $35 fee because my warranty is expired (which I refuse to do). So now I am stuck with a USELESS PIECE OF JUNK, not to mention the OVERPRICED ink jet cartridges I had stocked up on, which are also useless. AVOID HEWLETT PACKARD! Terrible Terrible Terrible!!!!!
Don't waste your money.. I repeat... DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

Summary: I gave this "printer" one star because it does print. However, it only prints when it feels like it. The most annoying quality about this printer is its inability to print properly without me wanting to slam it onto the ground a million times. If I happen to decide to cancel a print job or if it runs out of paper, then I have to restart my computer in order for this printer to work.
Wastes ink & paper, software does NOT work with some common programs

Summary: I bought this scanner/printer/copier/faxer because it seemed to be compact and my office is very small. Well, it doesn't work with many of my programs! Trying to update the software is like trying to read a "How to build a Space Rocket Manual!" I can never get my software to update. It is NOT self updating, they spit out loads of complicated instructions as if you have to rebuild the computer, in order to update the lousy software.
Summary: this is the worst printer i have come across. the scanner is not bad but printing with it is a nightmare. i can just about manage 10 pages without having to change the cartridge, and that's if it registers what i need printing.
Summary: I bought this printer just over a year ago and it was OK to start with but now shows paper jam faults all the time and just will not print.The paper path is completely clear and the paper aligned correctly. I can't clear the problem and the HP support is less than helpful. The F380 eats ink cartridges and is the ultimate proof that you get what you pay for. Avoid at all costs, even if it's a freebie!.
