Summary: This printer is an ink vampire. I am constantly replacing color cartridges when 95% of my printing is in black and white. It won't allow you to only print in black even if you have a full black cartridge.
Let's file a CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT ! - HP shouldn't be able to market this trash !

Summary: Just tried to set the printer up - download the driver -IMPOSSIBLE - have way too much time into a new printer that may or may not work...All the reviews that say stay away are true! Unfortunately my husband purchased this product and let it sit around in the box too long before trying to use it.
Summary: I've owned this printer for about 5 years now and aside from guzzling ink, which is why I only gave it 4 stars it has performed flawlessly, no compatibility issues running on a old Dell Dimension 8400 with Win XP. It copies fine, scans without a hitch and so forth. Maybe I got l lucky with this one?

Summary: I bought this printer and it has worked well for printing - as far as scanning - its a no go - have never been able to figure it out. The cartridges are problematic as the printer will NOT WORK at all if the cartridges are low.
Summary: I purchased it on Sep 2008 . Installed on a XP PC . It worked OK for almost one year (warranty period). Problem : It was eating the color cartridges even if you don’t print in color. Specifically the Yellow. It won't print black if one color cartridge is empty.
Summary: I have owned this printer for at least four years and it has operated reliably the entire time. I recently bought a continuous ink-tank system for it and the system plugged right in and it prints beautifully.
Summary: The unit is a disaster. Uses ink cartridges like nothing else even when not used. Put in a new cartridge, leave it for 2 or 3 weeks and it needs a new one without even using the unit. Doesn't even print black when color cartridge is empty. This is NOT a PRO model!!!
