Typical HP experience, not unlike Chinese water torture

Summary: I bought this printer at OfficeMax a couple years ago and decided to post this on Amazon as a warning. The price I was able to get on the printer--less than $100--was the lowest price I could find on an 11x17 wide format printer. It's not worth $100.
Summary: I've owned HP inkjet printers and use them for a very small business. I am writing to potential buyers of newer-model printers for their consideration. Here are some notable problems with the 7500A Wide Format printers that could be passed on to newer units: 0.
Summary: Technically, this printer does everything it says it does...BUT... - it seems that this all-in-one is made of VERY CHEAP PLASTIC that breaks inside quite easily. - there is no way to get to the broken cheap plastic part.
Summary: Takes way too long to warm up and way too long to print. Just out of warranty it threw a false paper jam, which turn out to be from the print hard being stuck all the way to the right and the sensor strip breaking. HP just doesn't make them like they used to.
Summary: I think this is a prime example of a once great company cutting quality corners to either compete better or maintain profit margins. It often makes a sound like paper is stuck in it but there isn't. Sometimes it prints overlapping text and some oddball control characters.

Summary: I've had this printer for several years now, and when it works it works fine. But it seems nearly every time print or scan I have connections issues. Either the computer cannot fine the printer or the printer cannot fine the computer.
Summary: I've had this printer for a while now and I have to say the prints are mediocre and its ink is expensive and doesn't last long at all. We've had a few HP printers over the years, some have been better than others.
Summary: Very little documentation came with the unit, making it difficult to troubleshoot issues. I had to go on line for every single issue. One issue is it just wont copy or print upon command. I really dislike the auto paper feed for envelopes or single sheet of paper. And the unit prints very slowly.
