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.
Summary: The main purpose for this purchase was to be able to print an 11x17 without borders . That seems to be impossible with this product. All attempts to do so result in one or more edges being compromised. Even with the help of your tech support and knowledgeable assisting friends, the result has been the same. Also the printing process is extremely , agonizingly slow. Using this machine for reproducing my art prints is all but useless. Disappointed is putting it mildly.
Summary: I love the features of this machine. However, it is apparently an old model and sounds like a rocket taking off when it is operating. I cannot use it when I am on the telephone; it drowns out everything in its wake. But it works, and I love the large format. It is an inexpensive alternative to other machines that offer the same features, so I recommend it.
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.
Summary: I had another HP wide bed scanner/printer/all in one that quit on me and I liked it's features. Having had an HP computer has spoiled me as well as the scanner/printer so I wanted to go back with the same quality. Not only does this 7610 meet everything I had, but it goes one step beyond with the new and improved features. I do a lot of photo scanning, printing, etc and love the quality of this unit. I look forward to using it for a long time.
Summary: This all-in-one has the obvious features, but a few really good ones, and one not good. The unit stands high but it does so because he can actually house inside the printer, ready to print, a huge quantity of 13x19 paper, as well as it has to provide a full scanner. The fact that it has a 11"x17" scanner is awesome! You can scan a double page spread, or a full frame 11x14 photograph !!! For a 4 color printer it gives a nice color quality image.
Excerpt: I really like HP products. But I found this one to be a little sluggish when receiving the prompts from the computer. When you try to print from your emails it prints out with half a blank page and then the top of the page and then when it goes to the next page it leaves lines out.Don't get me wrong because HP does make some exceptional printers as I have had at least 4 of them and they really last a long time as I had most of my printers for about years.
Pros: A Little Lag Time, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Reliable
Excerpt: I was really excited about the 13 x 19 paper size, although haven't even tried it. I have had a terrible time with the paper feed no matter the size or type. The wifi connection didn't work, so had to buy a $25 cord (so much for good price). Ink cartridges are reasonably priced, but hard to find, too new perhaps. Nice looking, pretty good scans once you figure out to just keep clicking ok. Nice prints and copies, so maybe pushing the paper every time is okay.
Pros: B W Prints Are Nice, Good price, Good Print Size
