prints well but goes through ink quickly
9 September 2012
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.
Summary: After moving from Louisiana to Texas (around 300 miles), My OfficeJet Pro L7680 refused to print, claiming that the ink cartridge door was open. I eventually took the whole printer completely apart (I had to disassemble the scanner to work my way down to this part where the door sensor was located). I wish I had taken pictures.
Printer has many parts that expire and require costly replacement

Summary: We paid for this printer so we could get a reliable product that would last us many years. We were very satisfied until all the built in failures started to happen. The first built in printer tax is the software. This software is designed to control everything about the printer without exception. If it does not like your cartridge or anything else it refuses to print. If you are low on in it refuses to print. Second is the expiration dates on everything.
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!
Summary: Was happy for nearly a year. Scans pretty good, ADF worked, fax worked, printing was pretty good for basic color text and limited graphics (it is definately not a photo printer). Then the troubles began and it has just declined to a major, costly, non-functional, out of warranty paperweight.
Summary: It jams too often and you cannot get to the jammed paper easily, it tells you its out of ink when it isn't, it won't print in black & white when yellow ink is low, ink is very expensive, the document feeder is unreliable, but the print quality is good. Now if only the rest of it was, but I wonder if there are any good, reliable printers out there at all?
Summary: I have had this printer for about two years of moderate use. The advertised feature list hit every requirement I had, but the reality I quickly had to accept was that anything other than the most straightforward printing function was likely to end in frustration and wasted time. I'd recommend you assess this series of printers not in terms of price for feature/function, but price compared to other very basic printers.
