Summary: Bug after bug and error after error. Sigh. The basic printing is good, but the feeder, paper jams, and driver bugs make me concur with all the other low reviews. Also, for years it was programmed to stop working unless I put more color ink in it even though I was printing with the software set to...
Summary: Turning print off or on takes very long. many times it goes into self check mode (or alignment mode) and returns when I have decided to quit. Even though it says more than 30 pages per minute, it actually prints only upto 2 pages per minute - all modes.
Summary: This printer looks good on paper but just never seems to get things right. It takes forever to warm-up and print, the ink is REALLY expensive, scanning to a Mac never worked, it would randomly go crazy and print jibberish (probably raw Postscript that it thought was text).
Summary: The hardware itself is fine but the driver is a disaster. Every time your computer reboots you have to reload the driver - in all its 395MB glory. This weekend I sat through another install, everything worked fine.

Summary: Comments about HP Officejet Pro L7780 Multifunction Printer: Prior to purchasing this printer I owned a smaller hp printer which worked well until the end when it started jamming up all the time. So, I upgraded thinking since i was paying 3 times as much I would be getting a better grade printer.
Summary: Here are the problems I had: 1. prints lines crooked. tried several "fixes" but none worked. 2. document feeder grabs several sheets at once or none at all. You have to babysit it to make sure the sheets go through ok...what's the point of an ADF if you have to sit and make sure it does its job? 3.
