Excerpt: I seem to have horrible luck with HP printers. But, given what I have seen online and given what I have read from other HP printer owners, I do not feel it is anything I am doing. Rather, I feel that HP printers just have poor reliability issues. I do not drop, hit, or splash water on my printers. I am just as meticulous and careful with my printers as I am with my laptops and notebooks. I also do not use my printers every day, constantly like some people do.
