Summary: HP customer since 1996. I have 3 HP computers and 2 Compaqs. I set up this new 4500 only one year ago. After 30 uses, the thing "hiccupped" and the scanning function quit. Now I just have a large USB printe, but I need a copier and paper FAX machine. It was always covered, clean and surge protected.
This is the worst printer/FAX/copier I have ever purchased

Summary: This is the worst printer/FAX/copier I have ever purchased. I have to coax it thru every use. It gives all kinds of errors. The FAX never did work even when I have had a tech try to get it working. Spend your money somewhere else...
Should not be listed as an office device. Okay ...

Summary: Should not be listed as an office device. Okay for limited personal use. In over 25 years of using printers made from many and various manufacturers, this is the very first printer I've ever had that absolutely required a long process of delay before returning to a print function.
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.
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.
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.
