"When it works, it's ok. Problem: doesn't work for long."

  • Pros: It's versatile... when it works.
  • Cons: Does not work. - First replacement of cartridges, and the printer would be missing colors. Spend $110 on a new set of cartridges. Then another $50 for a print head, and still no printing.

"IT STINKS!!!!!"

Mace Pavelek, CNET
29 January 2013
  • Pros: NOT ONE --- HP is MUCH more concerned with getting you to buy cartridges you don't need than giving you a printer that will actually print. I will NEVER buy an HP product of any type again!!!! They are shameless, money grubbers.
  • Cons: If you buy printer supplies in advance, they have a dated expiration and even though they are full of perfectly good ink that you paid for - they will not run. Don't buy this piece of ====. YOU'LL BE SOOOOOOORRRRYYYY!!!!

This HP printer isn't too good

daaneel, Viewpoints
9 September 2012
  • Excerpt: This has to be one of the WORST printers I could possibly think of for office use. Among the numerous problems I have with the machine, the largest is that if any color runs out of ink the entire printer is completely useless. I work in a small office setting where this is my only resource for all copies, printing, faxing and scanning. It does none of these things if the cyan cartridge (or any other one) is out of ink.

"WORST PRINTER I HAVE EVER OWNED - I HATE HATE HATE HP"

Ross900, CNET
21 August 2012
  • Pros: Feeder for scans - but quality of scans is not good
  • Cons: Rarely able to print using only black ink cartridge. HP has managed to make the software default to color and high quality any chance it gets. Very expensive printing costs. SIZE it's huge. Second paper feeder has never worked- I hate this printer
