Excerpt: I would say it's worth it only if you buy it when it's on sale and it worked on a dependable basis. I love the fact that it works with WiFi and i don't need to hard wire it to a router. My first issue with this printer happened only about a month after purchase with very light usage. When it printed, dark ovals appeared down the paper. Because it was within warranty, HP replaced the cartridge and the problem disappeared.
Excerpt: This is a great printer. I was easy to set up with the wireless network. I don't have issues with the network dropping and needing to reconfigure things. This printer does not automatically print double sided. I hear there is a way to set the printer to tell you when to turn the page over but I have not looked into that. Another down side is that the drawer does not hold very much paper. If the paper is loaded past the little line, the printer will jam.
Summary: As at least one other person reported- this thing won't print many .PDFs for some reason. We tried multiple HP-provided and Windows 7 drivers to no avail. HP blames it on Adobe, of course, which may be true- but one of them should probably look at fixing it. It's a great printer otherwise, but since we were trying to use it in an Accounting department that prints a lot of .PDF reports- it just didn't cut it.
Excerpt: This unit is just an OK multi function printer. The print quality is excellent but it is slow on both the first page and following pages. It is also missing a second tray for envelopes, etc. Its duplexing function is great, however. It replaced a Canon Imageclass 4370 monochrome printer and a Canon iP3500 inkjet, both of which I have beat to death. If I could go back to that combination, I would.
Excerpt: Nice printer, a little louder than my last HP LaserJet, but OK. It had some trouble finding my wireless network during the initial setup, so a 10 minute setup took over three hours to complete. Very frustrating! Instructions could have been clearer. After reading through their help screens and manually adjusting some network settings I finally got it to connect, and now it works fine.
Summary: The fax printer feature does not work via wireless. It only works via a USB connection. I sometimes need to fax a document from the computer. When connected via wireless, this feature does not work. I am using Windows 8.1. I suspect that this printer is not fully compatible with Windows 8.1.
Excerpt: This is a good printer for the cost. I had thought it would print double sided but only if it is feed manually which is kind of a pain. The Scan function is pretty fast and has options to scan to folders and not just to the same file. However the feed is very noisy and can be a distraction while on the phone. Overall is services the purpose for home office and regular use. Ink usage has been very efficient and has cut my cost for printing down significantly.
