Excerpt: I bought this printer a year ago as I was in need of a wireless printer. It has worked well and although it is a little large I am glad I bought it. It is very user friendly and has not given me any crazy errors. It does go through ink very quickly though and although it sounds great that it takes 4 different colors and you should only need to buy one at a time you really do need all of them as they run out at the same time.
Cons: If you can afford the reams of paper it spits out with a line or two of garbled print before it eventually prints the document you called for, you'll like this product...otherwise, DON'T EVEN BOTHER THINKING ABOUT BUYING THIS PIECE OF JUNK!
"Software loading stops at 96%. HP support is no help."

Pros: The L7680 prints, copies and faxes very well. That's 3 out of 4 functions.
Cons: I cannot get the software to fully load, even after two+ hours on HP chat line. The L7680 will not scan except through the separate MS XP Pro scanner command line. 96% loading is a problem HP has listed but the fixes they issue do not work.
Summary: Comments about HP Officejet Pro L7680: Spent a lot of time researching. Had high expectations. Tried to print a 4x6 photo and never printed. Causes MS Word 2007 to freeze if it is selected as default printer (even if you are not printing). HP is supposed to be fixing problems. Document feeder picks up paper crooked about 25% of the time.
Pros: Good Quality if it Prints, Price was good
Cons: Doc feeder slants paper, Hard Setup, Has Vista Driver Issues, Large Footprint
Pros: Does everything promised...about 5% of the time.
Cons: Software is horrendous. I spent 5 hours on an XP system. Then spent 3 hours upgrading that to Vista. Then I decided I'd had enough and bought a Mac. All for this stupid printer that I NEVER DID GET TO WORK!
Pros: Prints are crisp,copying is good. But it only worked once.
Cons: Terrible product: at 1st install everything OK. Turn off your PC and start it again, it will NEVER locate the device again. On the forums, there still is no solution I tried and tried again, then realized I was far from being alone.
