Cons: After a few months it kept telling me the black ink cartridge was empty when it clearly was not. Could be solved by turning on/off or yanking the cartridge out and re-inserting. Then scanner stopped working, and hasn't been fixed even with multiple resets and re-installing old and new drivers. Tr...
Summary: We have this printer because it came with the computer package (vista) we purchased. I think the reason it was "free" with our package and why it's so inexpensive to buy on it's own, is because you have to spend the $18.00/cartridge after very little amounts of printing.
Summary: It has taken about 4 hours of trial and error to get the s/w to install. Including serial install/uninstall/download patches. It is still not working. I will probably take it back. VERY UNIMPORESSIVE. HP should do better than this.
Summary: This is hands down the worst printer I've ever had. First, it doesn't come with a USB cable, (no biggie, have tons of spares but still...) second, every time I turned it on to use it, it would say it was out of paper. Every time! Even when it was full of paper.
Summary: I bought this all-in-one HP printer to replace a 2-year-old free HP printer that came with my apple computer and had been relatively easy to connect and use. I thought this new version would be a similar experience. Was I ever wrong!
Summary: I bought this item looking to test it as a possible lightweight all-in-one solution for a small computer lab (it was cheap enough that it didn't matter if students/visitors broke it). Unfortunately we experienced several problems right out of the box.
Summary: When it works, it's great. Too bad it's completely unreliable. The driver software has tons of bugs: First, it refuses to work as a shared device - remote PCs cannot print. After 4 hours with tech support they said we don't know what the problem is, contact microsoft.
HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier
Cali Girl, Amazon
1 September 2010
Summary: [..]. It is cheapest compare to other sellers , only 3 days I received my order the printer HP AIO Deskjet F4280. But I am very disappointed because the printer does not work: It is very hard to get the print carriage to move to the right side of the product in order to insert the cartridge.
Summary: Having a HPC6280 I thought this would be a nice little printer for my in-laws......... but not so. The quality of the product was poor, and after two hours with HP still could not get it to work....but what do you expect for $50.
Summary: I got this printer after my last trusty HP died. I wished I had researched because this was the worst decision. If you print anything with a lot of color, be sure to buy as much ink as the store sells. I have never bought so much ink in my life. I will never recommend this printer to anyone.
