I would not buy this item nor would I buy an HP printer again.

Tweety 42, Amazon
28 January 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this item since March, 2011. Here is what I have discovered while using this product for almost two years: -Print quality is sub-standard. The colors are not very accurate -Jams very easily, and when you try to remove the jam, the paper rips internally. -It takes forever to cancel a copy. Most of the time it just hangs and I have to restart the machine. -Start up and shut down is very slow.

Severely Disappointed

Makeeda Brathwaite, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: My father bought this for his home office and since I am a college student, I always have some assignment to print. I was glad to not have to deal with those tiny printers that shut down on you when you need them most. I am not too enthralled about this mammoth of a device though. 1) Clearly, it's too bulky. I cried when I saw Brother's new relatively small all-in-one printer 2) It takes a while to start up and makes printing-like noises when doing so.

No More HP Printers for Me

D. & L., Amazon
22 November 2012
  • Summary: This is the updated model for the HP6310 All-in-One. So, to be fair, my review is of that model - perhaps this one improves upon the HP6310. This was my 3rd version of this printer. I have stuck with HP based on their reputation over the years. However, my experience has been very mediocre. Each one has been very loud and slow in printing and faxing. It took problems with this one for me to realize it's time to try another brand.

It's great WHEN it works

Former Loyal HP User, Amazon
12 June 2012
  • Summary: OK I've had this iteration of HP's All in One for about six months. It's a replacement for its previous version. Now, this one is going back for replacement just like the earlier version. Both were buggy, for different reasons. Sure the features are great, but if I can't make a darn copy because the fax is caught in an endless error message loop it isn't much of an all in one. Plus the one touch scanning the older version had is gone.

I wonder why HP is loosing market share...

Party Wave, Amazon
25 May 2012
  • Summary: I've owned the HP 6500a for a little over 6 months. It's used as home printer and on average prints 10 pages +/- a week. The printer is slow to print on start-up and has already stopped working entirely. I was on the phone with HP support for an over an hour explaining my situation and the error message I was receiving. The HP service representative was very polite and explained he would ship out a new unit and proceeded to transfer my call to his supervisor.

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 went to costco.com and got a Brother in less than two days. It works great. Amazon was easy to deal with on the return.

Nice quality printing, low quality printer.

By Neil Gibson "rlstjs", Amazon
14 August 2011
  • Summary: Would be a very nice printer if (1) if didn't shake violently when printing, (2) used less expensive ink refills, and (3) the LCD display didn't zonk out after 2 years. Nice quality printing however for pictures, copies, etc. Features are easy to use. Too bad there wasn't a little more quality built in.

Not good

LUTZ, Amazon
23 June 2011
  • Summary: Bought b/c Staples emailed it was on sale for $50 and I actually just had to replace my old HP 7560. Looks nice, smaller, quieter and setup couldn't be easier. But less than 1 week later it's going back. Twice stopped printing black - they said it must be a bad ink cartridge and overnighted me a new one. Worked fine for a day then stopped printing yesterday w/ a non-specific error message. Not sure why but don't want to know - not worth putting more time into it.

When it works, its good. However, don't rely on it ...

Valerie G. Aarne "Valerie G.A. Grossman", Amazon
27 May 2011
  • Summary: I have always used HP OfficeJets "All-in-one" products. 3 months ago, I replaced an older one with this product and its been a nightmare. When it works, its great. However, the wireless works sometimes, and often doesn't. So, I changed it so its just connected to only my computer (again a pain in the neck for the students in my house). Then, a week ago ... I started getting an error message, "load paper" ...

Highly disappointed

Ricardo E. Riveros, Amazon
7 May 2011
  • Summary: I don't think I've ever given a negative review to any product much less an HP product. This printer used to work i.e. it fufilled all of its functions without issues. The problems started when I switched to Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Most of the times the printing works, but I totally lost the scanning capability. I know that HP knows about the problems because they offer on their website a bunch of additional apps to diagnose problems and issues.
