Summary: After 40 years of using only HP printers this was the utmost disappointment. It drinks ink cartridges to the point that it is in no way economical to run. When the low ink signals to change a cartridge soon you have to watch every page print otherwise you loose so many sheets of paper and additional ink. If you change the ink cartridge immediately you lose that much more ink because you have no idea how may more pages you can get out.
Summary: I have had several dozen HP printers and own four now including an 8600. Owned for about a year. I have had brother, Okidata, and others. This is by far the worst and most frustrating printer i have ever owned. Problems with both wireless and USB connections. Sometimes it takes 5-10 minutes to print a page. Especially when you are in a hurry to go to a meeting. Jams very often. Both paper and carriage jams.
Stopped working after not many months of use and no customer care from HP.

Summary: Big Paper Weight. Possibly the worst printer used and I have used many. Get an error message " ox61011bec " that will not go away despite hours of trying despite googling. Trying HP's no existent help desk/forum! Seems that nobody there seems to care to fix these things even despite my paying much more for this printer. Only worked for a short time and did not print that much in that time....
Summary: This is the worst printer I've ever owned. It doesn't print! Every day I get "unable to connect to printer" messages - I've run every scan, fix available from HP and they always come back that everything is working correctly. Customer service thru HP is WORTHLESS. I'm switching to Epson. Waste of money.
Lesson of the day: buy from Amazon, not from third party sellers.

Summary: This printer was a complete nightmare. It started having problems in the first couple of months. First it was a bad wifi connection: one page would take about 35 minutes to print. Then the printer started printing out complete jibberish. It literally has cost us hours and hours of frustration. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM! Also, DO NOT BUY THE WARRANTY ASSOCIATED WITH THE PRINTER! The customer service is terrible.
Summary: Airprint works well with my iPhone and with my PC. To print 11x17, I have to manually hold the paper and feed it at the correct rate to prevent jamming or image distortion. I have never been able to get the document feeder to scan images in a format that I can use, despite it allegedly being a .pdf.
Summary: I rated this printer 1 star only because I could not select a lower rating. I purchased it for home use and it was a huge mistake. It took forever to print anything and was an ink hog. I don't think I printed more than 200 pages on it when I discovered that it would not print with black ink any longer. I tried to clean the heads several times to no avail. The next thing recommended was to replace the printhead. Instead, I replaced the printer with an Epson!
The Happiest Day you have with this Printer is when you throw it out the window!

Summary: I have owned two of these printers (my office manager bought a replacement one thinking the first was just a defective unit) and they are GUARANTEED to be the most frustrating piece of electronics you will ever own. It doesn't matter if you connect it via USB or Wireless it just disappears or goes to sleep and refused to print until you reboot it. When it does work it is tediously slow. Literally hours to print one document.
Summary: Sitting here trying to print one photo, seriously a single photo. It came out entirely blue. New ink cartridges, shouldn't be doing that. Run the tests, which take a good 5 minutes to load, print looks fine...another photo and it's green. The 7500A, I cannot begin to attest to just how awful this thing has been. It refuses to print wirelessly, simply refuses, and even with the connection straight to the computer, it takes it's sweet time.
Summary: I have bought HP printers since the 1980s, because I always had great luck with them. I rarely post negative reviews - usually the negative reviews are by people without patience. I do try to solve problems before blasting a product with hate. I bought this printer with a 3 year extended warranty for my home office because of the wide format. It is sitting right next to an older HP inkjet that is still chugging along. The first HP 7500A had a lot of paper jam problems.
