Summary: I couldn't find a sticky hairspray, so I sprayed the main paper feed roller with Elmer's spray on adhesive, waited 1 hour, it stayed tacky, and I have no paper feed problems now. So, now the scanner (which I bought used and blind) does everything great. Just gotta get the surface of the paper feed roller to be a little tacky to the touch. I've heard sanding with coarse grit sandpaper also works.
Summary: I bought this printer in October of 2005. At the time I was demonstrating and selling cameras, computers and peripherals in Best Buy. I had an opportunity to compare its performance with every other printer in the store. It was pricey and didn't have all of the features I could have used but it was the best printer for the money and the cost-per-page beat every other home/office machine in the store.
Summary: Hp printers used to be good now there getting worse we had 1 2575 that the scanner pooped out when we got it the secound one works we still have it after a year of light use and it works.It it slow on copies when i turn it on i wait 4 mins before it compies or it will scan the image then suck up the paper and sit there for 20 min then says PLEASE TRY AGAIN so i shut it off and wait 5 minutes turn it on and wait 4 min. the make a copy and it works.
Summary: I'm a college student and use this printer on a pretty regular basis. I've had this printer for about a year and have NEVER had any problems with the paper feed. Maybe it just depends on where they manufactured your printer. Everything I've printed, from Word documents to skydiving pics, has turned out great. I print out all my photos on store brand glossy photo paper (much cheaper) and they look fantastic.
Summary: I received this printer in December 2005. I use it for printing word documents, photos and scanning and have had few problems. I probably use it 1-2 times a week and occasionally do run into paper jams-but they've been easily fixable. The photoquality is excellent even without the special photo-ink. I've also had good luck scanning photos, fixing them up and then reprinting. A year ago, I got this printer for about $160 and I'd say it was worth it.
Summary: Wouldn't take paper, right out of the box. Back to Best Buy, exchanged, no problems now. Nice photo prints on 4" x 6". But Best Buy doesn't carry this printer anymore... guess the word got out. Hope it lasts longer than my last HP printer (about 2 years), that one was a much cheaper model and worked accordingly. I'd never buy another HP laptop like this Omnibook XE2, takes a full 15 minutes to boot up.
Summary: Very good photos for the price. Lets me make copies, pictures, scan and print from one machine which is less clutter on desk top. It could work faster but is far better than my old inkjet. Overall I am very pleased with the 2575.
Summary: A lot of people have had problems with paper feeding on these all in ones. About 2% - 3% of these babies built between summer 05 and winter 06 had bad rollers. I called the help line and got all this info from the rep after some troubleshooting (paper settings, cleaning, etc). The "cleaning kit" they sent is actually an abrasive pad type thing that you put in the printer, and run some software to 'resurface' the rollers.
