Total waste of money

Lori Mosca, Amazon
27 March 2014
  • Summary: I have had this printer less than 2 years. I've replaced ALL the ink recently, even those cartridges that don't "need" to be, as well as replaced the print head all at a cost over $150. I STILL CANNOT PRINT anything. I just get blank pages.

Garbage

Running BS, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: What a piece of trash. I wouldn't give this thing to my mother-in-law. This was the replacement HP sent me when the 4500 I purchased crapped out on me (should've sold it then but I needed it at the time). I've had nothing but problems from this thing.

never buy a rebuilt

Paul S. Cohen, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: The printer worked fine for one month. After the first month the carriage jammed up and would not move. The cost of fixing it is almost as much as the cost of a new printer, which I had to purchase. I have learned my lesson on trying to buy something over amazon.

Good printer so far

  • Summary: Scanning works fine, relatively fast and in a descent quality. I love the feature that you don't have to start the scan job from the computer, but directly from the touchscreen.

Scan Problems

Mountain Guy, Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: I was pleased this was delivered within a day or two. The setup was fairly easy except it would not scan. After spending hours, two separate times, on the phone with HP I decided to return the darn thing. What worked, worked fine - just could not get it to scan.

I hate corporate proprietary mentality

Tim S., Newegg
18 October 2011
  • Summary: This is not a "wifi" printer. I'm not sure why anyone would hassle with one of those anyhow. It is a network printer, so just plug a network cable from your router into it and you can print from any laptop or computer on the network and it's a lot more dependable then those wifi 802.11 printers.
  • Pros: I have had since May 2011. I have just found with the right settings, I can plug it into my home phone line and as long as I have my answering machine set to pick up before the fax I can have this set to receive faxes all day long. It listens in on the line and if a fax comes in I can just hang u...
  • Cons: I'm knocking a couple eggs for this because it errks me to no end. I hate corporate proprietary mentality. It seems it only likes the ink being replace by NEW hp factory ink cartridges. It can identify a previously used cartridge. So if your one of those money saving refillers, as I am, you can n...

The Glass is half empty.

Daniel Elliott "oracle of cypress", Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: This is my 3rd 6000 series HP. I like it in general, but I expect in a move to save money, they have a touch screen to everything. What I don't like is that to make a simple copy, I need a magnifying glass to do a 3 step process which previously only took pushing one button.

User Review

David N., Newegg
29 September 2011
  • Summary: Don't waste your money on this printer...
  • Pros: This print has nice curb appeal and is a great size for a home office. We were excited to have a more compact printer to use.
  • Cons: After owning the printer for two months, the printer stopped working. I spent over an hour on the HP tech support line and still no printer. I would suggest looking elsewhere for a new printer.

An absolute piece of junk!

Amazon Customer "DigitalRaj", Amazon
29 September 2011
  • Summary: This is by far the worst printer I've ever owned. Why? It is constantly giving me error messages. It frequently looses it's communication with my PC. The solution software has major issues with Vista and Windows 7. I constantly have to reboot the printer for it to work.
