Summary: It's well known that all printer manufacturer's give away printers for much less to reap back their profit in high priced cartridges and supplies. HP has now raised their prices to the extent that the cartridges for this printer are OUTRAGEOUS in price.
Summary: I have had this printer for a couple of years and have been amazed at how much trouble it can be to use. I have always been able to fix the problem -- at least if I called HP tech support -- until today. Today I spoke to two different HP tech support people.
Too complicated, too slow, too many unnecessary headaches

Summary: I got this printer from a friend, who bought it and never used it. It took me a few days to figure it all out. It came with missing parts so I had to order everything. Finally, when I got everything, I found that just the cartridges alone cost over time more than the printer itself.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Pros: Good Quality if it Prints, Price was good
Cons: Doc feeder slants paper, Hard Setup, Has Vista Driver Issues, Large Footprint
