Excerpt: In general I like HP printers and this one is no exception EXCEPT I recently discovered that the fax portion of it has a serious known defect that could affect one's ability to make or receive landline phone calls. The fax portion of the printer causes the display on both my fax and phone to show "Line in use" or "Phone off hook." This is a problem I've had for some time. I looked back at some notes I'd written when I first bought/installed the printer in 2008.
Excerpt: This would be a wonderful printer if it weren't for printheads. It takes two, and the black/yellow on mine wore out in six months. A friend who has the same printer had to replace his after 18 months. The printheads cost $73.00 each, and they need to be ordered online... at least that's the case with Office Depot where I purchased the printer. Otherwise, the all-in-one printer does a great job in all aspects, and I've found that HP printers generally use less ink...
Summary: This is the second HP OfficeJet Pro L7590 I have owned. The first burned up due to a paper jam, if you can believe that! The second one works well, but the software provided by HP does not work with it 100%. I am unable to scan from the computer directly using the HP Solutions Center. All in all, the printer/scanner/fax is a great piece of equipment. The fault lies with HP programmers.
Summary: my reseach had me choose this printer. It is very noisy. After I replaced the black ink cartridge with an original HP cartridge I can't get it to print consistantly. There are no "no ink" or "low ink" warnings but when I print test pages, no black. The automatic feeder and duplex feeder are great features that make this slightly better than average in my opinion. Certainly nothing like the hype I read in my research.
Summary: I've been using this machine for nearly a year and am fairly satisfied with it. It's hooked to a seven-year-old Dell desktop PC running Windows XP Professional. Pros: It's fast and the print quality is very good. I bought the auxiliary input tray, so I can print onto either letter-size or legal-size paper without swapping out paper. Ink cartridges are easy to install. Ink levels are dispayed by default. It has many convenient whistles and bells.
Prints great but scanning is a pain and paper jams

Summary: We got this printer for a bargin and it is leaps and bounds better than my old inkjet the pictures it prints are top quality and it is much faster than my old printer. HOWEVER: It jams about 20% of the time the machine is not set up in way that makes it easy to clear paper jams especially ones where the paper rips. I have paper loaded correctly it just decides to jam and nothing can stop it!
Summary: Design problem: they put the sticker with the serial # on the bottom of the printer so you have to tilt it up to see it. Tech problem: I had to install three times (with help from India) to get all the software to install and functionality to get up and running. Customer service problem: Indian guys don't write/speak english perfectly so it can be confusing and frustrating to get help. However, it was an inexpensive printer with a lot of functionality.
Summary: I got a great deal from Amazon so I thought it was time to replace the HP G85 All in One we had used for 9 years. It was packed well. There were pieces of tape in places I could not even imagine there could be tape. Be sure to get them all. The instructions were fine for the initial assembly. It is true that it takes about 25 minutes to initialize. Why? What is the point? Installing the printer was not easy.
Summary: When it works, it's a great machine but this is my second one and both of them seem to think some ink cartridges are empty when they are full and I've had to waste a LOT of money replacing cartridges. After arguing with HP for over 6 months (who insisted on continuing to make me try the same "fixes" over and over that never worked), I was asked to send 4 cartridges (that my printer was saying were empty and they sent me 4 new ones.
