TOXIC fumes - unbearable

Jazzman, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: The printer functions okay, although there were some driver issues. The main problem is that it's TOXIC emissions, which I assume is ozone. Keep in mind that I am not oversensitive to this kind of thing, and others has experienced it.

User Review

Anonymous, Newegg
29 March 2013
  • Summary: On top of the above, the Linux support requires the HP daemon, which is bloatware in my opinion.
  • Pros: HP Brand - Linux support.
  • Cons: Required a firmware update. Indicated that it required a firmware update with vague message "No Strings in RO". Already sent this on to a facility with Linux only computer systems. The only way to perform a firmware update is via USB with a Windows or Mac computer. Regardless of the firmware upda...

Poor Print Quality

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2013
  • Summary: We purchased this unit with the intention to use it as a standalone fax machine - every other printer in our organization is an HP and we have this same model in use as a scanner for our staff accountant, so when our old fax machine stopped feeding pages reliably, we purchased this one due to prior...
  • Pros: Looks nice, I suppose
  • Cons: Print quality is terrible

Scanner Sucks!!

Lia L., Newegg
9 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm wasting so much time because of this crab.
  • Pros: Printer works greate
  • Cons: Scanner Sucks!! If you are frequent scanner user and need them to be saved, this is not an item you want to keep. It only allow me to scan in 300dpi no less no more. And the worst part is it has so small memory that if you scan more than 4 document it holds scanning until transfer image to comput...

Bad Deal

Jack F., Newegg
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Like other HP customers have said, my previous HP, a LaserJet 4, as a champion workhorse. This is cheap plastic. I bought this thing online so I did not see it in person. If I had I would not have bought it. I am surpised HP would put their name on something like this.
  • Pros: Price was right, print speed was good.
  • Cons: The wi-fi went out and I had to use the usb cable to print. Luckily I bought the warranty. It is now in Texas being evalauated as to whether I will get a replacement so I am without it. Warranty is replacement only not repair which I could have done locally. Not Good.

Complete Black Hole DO NOT BUY

William S., Newegg
16 November 2012
  • Summary: They are the worst garbage I have seen in 14yrs of using and reselling printers and multi-functions. Worse than any inkjet. We have three other printers and rarely fax so it gets VERY light use and still can't stay functional. The HP MF it replaced lasted 7 yrs!
  • Pros: None, complete waste of money and time! On 3rd one and the fax has stopped working on it. Something different failed on each unit. Only useful as a massively oversized paper weight.
  • Cons: We have gone through THREE of these things. Something different has gone out on each one. We are giving up and getting a different product. The fax is out this time and we barely use the fax function! The interface and options are very poor and substandard. I've never seen a MF inkjet be as frail...

Out Dated Technology

David C., Newegg
24 October 2012
  • Summary: The digital read out was horrible. I had to get down on my knees and put a light directly onto the read-out and still could not understand what it was saying. I have an 8 year old HP printer that is incredible to read. Expected so much more.
  • Pros: Nothing good about this printer! NO PROS!
  • Cons: The digital read out was horrible. I had to get down on my knees and put a light directly onto the read-out and still could not understand what it was saying. I have an 8 year old HP printer that is incredible to read. Expected so much more. The keyboard is very small and difficult to push any of...

Stopped Working

Bruce A., Newegg
19 October 2012
  • Summary: For the money it should have lasted longer. I know we are dealing with a lot of throw-away mentality but come on . . . .
  • Pros: None at the moment.
  • Cons: Bought this for a client in June 2011, and now this printer is no longer recognized by any computer we've tried to use it on - PC, Apple, or our Linux box. It doesn't work no matter which driver or interface we use. I can get it to be recognized manually by IP address on LAN but nothing will prin...

Crap! Skewing print jobs, even after WTY replacement!

Vicki, Amazon
11 October 2012
  • Summary: Tried to give this my best shot, but it is simply a crappy printer. The basics work. One-sided printing isn't too bad and flatbed scanning/copying work fine. However, printing double sided and using the tray to scan cause the images to be skewed (as-in CROOKED).
