Summary: This printer is the worst Ive had. I just use it to print the occasional photo but mostly for recipes I find online so its not used daily. It never printed very good photos from the start. They were grainy and not very clear and it wasn't my camera because I had them developed elsewhere and they were fine. And text print also had lines through it. This printer drinks ink like crazy.

Summary: Before you buy this printer, Google this phrase: "HP Photosmart 5510 prints blank pages." That's all you need to know. And FYI, HP tech support dodges questions on this issue and never provides any actual support. Steer clear of this printer. And possibly steer clear of HP in general.
Summary: Absolutely hate this printer! Half the time my laptop or computer would not pick up the printer and it would always tell me the printer is offline although i'm sitting 3 feet away from it. Also, there seems to be a problem with the printer head over time. I guess the head would get clogged and you would no longer be able to print out black. So many people I know had that issue and theres even youtube videos and forums that attempts to solve it.
Summary: I'm not sure why everyone is angry about this printer. I bought this in 2012 for my daughter going into college. She used it sparingly for normal documents, however she used it a lot to print photos. She loves how easy it is to load or scan pictures. The only complaint would be that it does go through ink rather quickly. However we have never had a problem with printing crookedly or refusing to print black or a certain color even after we've replaced the ink cartridges.
Summary: Rushed purchase out of need, got a year of use out of it, then it stopped printing color...I know how to fix most anything, and this is beyond any cleaning/aligning/etc. approaches. I should have read these reviews...and HP Support said there was nothing they could do after the year warranty was up--no advice whatsoever.
This printer is the worst piece of garbage I have ever bought
27 November 2014
Summary: This printer is the worst piece of garbage I have ever bought. No auto duplexing and the printer and driver design make manual duplexing an extreme challenge. Shortly after the warranty expired it began misfeeding pages when attempting to print multi-page documents causing the 2nd and subsequent pages to begin printing at the middle or toward the bottom of the sheet resulting in significant waste of ink and paper - certainly NOT eco-friendly.
Summary: Yep, don't buy. I'm regretting buying this at Best Buy. I won't buy anything like this again without reading up on Amazon reviews! Replaced ink cartridges after the first batch ran out, we use the printer maybe 2 times a month to print a page or two at a time. It will not print black anymore. I found a YouTube video of a guy cleaning the metal mesh with wet paper towel and I tried that...
