Constant problems!

B. Bruner "Brewsky", Amazon

  • Summary: Many problems with this printer! Wireless has a mind of it's own...Constantly getting error messages about ink cartridges... Ink runs out way to fast.... Were ready to throw to the curb this thing and find a another brand.

HP you used to be so good

Adam J Kilzer, Amazon
4 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought from a warehouse store last holiday season. Have owned HP's for over 15 years...some of my oldies lasted 10 yrs+ but alas no USB ports on them. I use it for light to medium home use. Occasional photos, emails, letters, etc. Never really got the wireless to work properly on this thing. Kept having to reinstall the drivers if wanted wireless. Gave up and started just going with the USB plug in. No real other issues until a couple months ago.

Difficult to setup. Replaced by old printer.

playfulcolors, Ebay
3 April 2014
  • Summary: I bought mine used so I attribute a lot of the problems to that. Even after receiving a new one and after spending days to get it setup, I found that it was not as fast, as quiet, or as easy to use as my HP 2150. So this printer is on the floor and I'm using my HP 2150 again. My main problem is scanning multiple pages at once. I want it to save it as one pdf document.

Practically dead

Meghan, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: A week ago, it randomly stopped scanning. Today, it let me know that it also won't be faxing or copying anymore. And this after spending considerably MORE money on it than the price offered here, AND having to replace cartridges at a furious rate. (I actually broke down and bought a laser a year ago just for the black ink. Huge cost savings!). I'm still giving it two stars because it is now 2 years old.

Works when it wants

E. Cunningham, Jr., Amazon
1 February 2014
  • Summary: Printers are by far the worst tech gamble in the electronics industry. Which is kinda amazing, you would think that the level of reliability should be on par with computers/laptops/tablets. But its always hit or miss from the start...eventually leading to miss after miss after miss. This "wireless" printer, may be the one of the worst products I have ever purchased (i once bought a junk box from yugster..

Junk - avoid it

Susan avid reader "BargainHunter", Amazon
7 December 2013
  • Summary: JUNK. purchased it in October 2011, and it died October 2013. It was slow when printing a 10 page document and using wireless print. The scan quality wasn't good either; my Canon MP240 was better at both. It doesn't like to "wake up" without having to press the power button. I installed & reinstalled the software on my wife's laptop about every 4-5 months to get it to work again without having to use the power button, but then within a month it would stay "asleep" again.

You can do much better for a much lower price.

Steven Francis Koller, Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: Scans well, but it's printing services are atrocious. My parents bought one of these, and almost every time they try to print something , a problem occurs. Not user-friendly, nor is it worth the price. I'll never buy an HP product after dealing with this printer.

Not so great

A. Esplin, Amazon
11 November 2013
  • Summary: I owned this for just over a year. It printed sooooo slow sometimes, other times adequate printing. I replaced my color ink today and it would not recognize the ink nor print any color. I tried several things to solve it and nothing, so I turned it off with the plan that it would reset it's brain. It would never again turn on. I followed the instructions to reset the power supply and still nothing. It is just dead. Pretty disappointed that it only lasted me this long.

Will not ordered used equipment.

Beth Graves-Lombard, Amazon
3 November 2013
  • Summary: The package arrived unprofessionally packed. I thought I was ordering the 4500 series I currently used and received an older model. I could not get it to connect to my computer. Will ship back.

Not HP's finest

Andrew Soucy, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: Not only is this model not their finest product, but out of all the different models I've owned... this has to be the worse model sold by HP. The biggest issue is the top paper feeder for copy/scan. The gears are cheap plastic that strip out. HP warranty was very good, but why buy a product that won't last to begin with... just step up to a 6600/6700.
