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.

  • 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.

Expensive Disposable Junk Printer

Michael C., Newegg
27 September 2011
  • Pros: I can throw it away.
  • Cons: Went through 2 print heads, and lots of ink trying to "realign cartridge". Won't print color without smearing the first page, or at all on the 2nd page. Engineered for EARLY FAILURE, and EXPENSIVE INK. Do not buy.

Piece of junk

J. A., Newegg
21 September 2011
  • Summary: I generally like HP printers, but I would never buy this printer if I could reverse time. Newegg was prompt in their service but I should have been more thorough in my research.
  • Pros: When it works, it works good, but that's seldom.
  • Cons: Generally, it says "clear paper jam and press ok". There is no paper in sight and you do everything you can think of and that's all that it says. That's what it says no matter what you do. There is no jam, it's just a piece of junk.

Disappointing purchase

Joseph F., Newegg
22 August 2011
  • Summary: I've already ordered my second set of ink cartridges in about two months of intermittent use. And I don't print photos! Nearly all my printing is in black and white yet the three color cartridges are running out faster than the black.
  • Pros: Prints Fast. Works good on a network, but only after I disabled the sleep mode.
  • Cons: Starter ink ran out very fast. Replacement cartridges are not doing much better. This is supposed to be an economical printer to operate! My biggest gripe is that I need to clean the color print cartridges almost every day. I expected much better from Hewlett-Packard.
