Decent print job but extremely annoying that it's always deciding to clean the print heads ...

Kate, Amazon

  • Summary: Decent print job but extremely annoying that it's always deciding to clean the print heads (which takes forever!!) and always offline. Wish it would automatically connect back to the hotspot without having to connect it manually and put in the password every, freaking time!

Weak gear train

JerseyGirl59, Amazon
10 January 2015
  • Summary: It was nice while it lasted. Recent paper Jam error message wouldn't go away after all paper was cleared. Saw this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMFW1RRlDHE which identified a broken gear as a possible problem. Sure enough, that is what we have here.

Pick another product line!

Ann M. Carbonell "Adoublen", Amazon
26 November 2014
  • Summary: I had an 8500 for many years but it just got stupid. I ordered a refurbished one and it has print head and color management issues. It just stopped printing specific colors and no troubleshooting manual helps. Makes me want to leave HP products behind for another.

Their software is terrible and nags you constantly

Paul Burich, Amazon
16 September 2014
  • Summary: This will be my last HP printer. Their software is terrible and nags you constantly. The cartridges are expensive and don't last long enough. I bought HP brand cartridges in mid-July ($100) and am already getting low ink warning messages here in mid-September--after having printed fewer than 100...

Software bugs not easily repaired

Mia Phelps, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Horrible software! Have to reinstall software every time I need to print. No matter if the connection is wired or wireless. HP refuses to address their software issues and their print/scan doctor repair software is useless. Frustrating to use as each print is a 30➕ Minute adventure.

Has that infernal feature that it won't use re-filled cartridges

FanofJesus "Jean", Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I took this off a friend's hands, who also handed me several bottles of refill ink. I was able to download the installation software for windows 7 and it installed beautifully. However, even though the cartridges were filled with color ink, the machine showed them as empty.

Too many problems.

Gary M, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: This printer gave me problems from the start. Warranty service was not the best. Agents were often foreign and hard to understand. Ink was expensive and didn't last long. Once the warranty lapsed I replaced it.
