Excerpt: We had problems getting this printer hooked up to one of our PC's and our tech guy had to contact HP. It runs a bit slower than the 7600 we had, which broke down. The cover to the paper tray doesn't want to stay in place. The scanner on this one takes a lot longer to scan than the 7600 printer we had. It's great in that we can print more than one size of paper. It prints clear printing and the color is good.
Excerpt: Does not come with a duplexer and consumes an incredible amount of ink. The ink cost $60+ dollars so it's really high maintenance. In addition the print quality is just ok nothing mind blowing. Guess that's what you get for that price.
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
Excerpt: Beware, the Automatic duplexer is NOT included. I called Staples, they weren't sure, so called HP, they said it was. I need auto duplexing. So, I bought it. No duplexer. It's an optional part, Staples does not carry it (or at least when I bought it) and it was difficult to find even from HP. It does not even come up as an optional part for this printer. It's the same duplexer used for the Officejet 8500. Part # is C7G18-64001.
