Summary: I bought this to print 4 page newletters for work on 11x17 so that its like a booklet. What is not told to you is that it will not auto duplex, which is the whole reason I bought it. Apparently you have to but another accessory. The print quality is so so as well. Not the good quality I expect from HP.
Excerpt: I've used Cannon, HP, and Brother large-format printers and don't think I have ever had this much trouble formatting an 11x17 pdf to print from my pc (Dell). I have selected every screen to print size as 11x17, but it's a very sparse set up page! I think there might be something wrong with the installation. But I'm also wondering if i have to go through this every time I need to print to 8 1/2 x 11 then change to 11 x 17, and vice versa.
Excerpt: When I got it home Iit would not print 2 sided. I had to go to the site and download the manual, as it does not come with one (VERY INCONVENIENT)to discover I had to buy another piece of equipment to print 2 sided??? The bos ONLY SAID 2 SISED PRINTING, no mention of a need to buy another piece. Coul;d you please mail me a printed manual?: ): )The printer works fine but no manual and no 2 sided printing I scored 2 stars instead of 4.
Pros: Durable construction, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Reliable
Cons: Advertised 2 Sided Print, But Have To Purchase Addi, Download No Way To Set, For Fast Pring Less Ink, Itional Piece To Print 2, Large Footprint, Like Old Hp Had, No Fast Print Option Like, No Manual In Box Have To, Older Hp Had Less Ink, Sided
Excerpt: I have other HP scanners and they all scan group pictures as individual photos. This scanner, which has the wide format, does not have that capability. It scans a group of pictures and you end up with a photo of the whole group. Very disappointed. I scan 50 - 100 pictures for a dvd slideshow and I will have to revert to the smaller scanners to make a dvd.
Summary: I need a printer that prints on ledger sized paper (11 x 17" for business use. I have another brand that I use at the office. When I purchased a HP laptop recently the customer service rep suggested I look at this printer as it was on sale. I received the printer 2 weeks ago and was amazed how easy it was to set up and then was amazed at the copy quality which is much better than any printer that I have owned and I have owned many over the years.
Does not perform as advertised on 11 by 17 booklet
1 February 2014
Summary: The one feature that I wanted doesn't work, so i rated the performance as poor. Otherwise, the rating would have been 5 stars. Printing in booklet mode on 11 by 17 paper was the only reason I bought this printer. So, if that's your goal, too, do not buy this printer. If you want only to print large format, that is, print on 11 by 17 paper in landscape or portrait mode, it will print properly.
Excerpt: 11 x 17 bed for scanning and 11 x 17 printing is the only reason to have this machine. Printing in general, letter and legal are about the same as my 5 year old 7680, which by the way still works great. Access to the paper tray is cumbersome due to the platform above not staying up on its own and not a good fit/set up. It was a tough call to keep it. If I didn't have the room and a current job that required an 11 x 17 bed I would have sent it back.
Summary: I was so excited to find an all-in-one with an 11 x 17 bed so I can scan my drafting prints. The description clearly says 11 x 17 bed, yes that is true, however- you cannot scan an 11x17! The paper will fit no problem, but the scan bar only handles up to standard 8 1/2" letter size in width. The description needs to be adjusted to clearly state this printer's capabilities, which unfortunately for me just don't work.
