Summary: I had a previous model similar to the HP 2575 which lasted for 2 years with alot of use. However, after purchasing this model on Sept 21, 2006 and using it for barely 2 months the scanner mode is now squeaking and sounds horrible. This is the same noise the prior version did right before it quit.
Summary: I have had this printer for about three months and have consistently had the same problems with the printer telling me that it is out of paper when I am looking at a stack of paper. Sometimes it works, more often it does not. It is very inconsistent. Now I have a new issue.
Dissappointing. Started great but the paper feed is a problem.

Summary: I bought this printer from Staples back in January. It was terrific and I really was hoping to take advantage of the scanner, the printer, and the network port. Seemed like a great package. But the paper feed issue is real. I'm using standard printer paper from Staples, nothing fancy.
Summary: I am in complete agreement with the rest of you who have had paper feeding problems. The printer was fine at first although difficult to set up (software). Now, a month later, the printer either doesn't take the paper or jams. It has nothing to do with the quality of the paper.
Summary: I thought this was a great little all-in-one for about 3 months, then the paper feed problems began. When I tried to print anything the first attempt would fail to pickup the paper. After reloading the paper and tweaking it would print.
Kit to fix the problem is not that available easily

Summary: I tried online 'live'support and asked for the kit to fix the "out of paper" problem, but they put me through a bunch of questions about it that took so long that I ran out of time. It does not seem to be as simple as contacting them and having them send out a kit.
Summary: Please save yourself some money and if you have this printer..unplug it and throw in trash now before you waste countless hours of your time, ink and expensive paper...jams constantly and hand feeding required..RUN AWAY!!
Summary: I can't believe all the problems with feeding the paper. Glad (well not glad) to see I am not alone. I've tried every and anything to get my paper to feed. If I knew then what I know now, I would have returned the piece of junk. It's too late now.
Summary: It's all true about the paper jam issues. After a while, you need to manually load each piece of paper for it to pick it up. Once the paper is fed, it prints fine. It's getting the paper to feed that's the issue. It's very frustrating!! Next time I'm buying a different brand!
Summary: I wouldn't buy this printer again. I have had it about 2 years. I get paper jams but that's not the worse thing. The "OK" button stopped working. So when I get a paper jam, I have to shut the printer off and then back on.
