Excerpt: This is the second HP Photosmart printer I have owned but the first all in one. I wore out my last photosmart printer. I have owned 3 other HP printers before that. All of them were excellant. Very easy to operate, excellant print quality and dependable. Very few problems with their performance and most of the problems were caused by me. My all in one 2610 is by far the best. I love the speed, the quality of the printing whether I am printing photos or documents. ...
Excerpt: As a sole professional, I have always used hp all-in-one products based on good reviews and experience. That is until now. My last all-in-one failed and after many calls to hp tech support (which is awful), they sent me a replacement. It was a refurbished upgrade (according to hp). The photosmart 2610 has not worked correctly since day 1. I had to make 5 copies of an item and since then, will always make 5 copies unless I remember to change it. The printing from...
A disappointing printer that has a voracious appetite for ink
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The HP Photosmart 2610 is a low-end all-in-one. It lacks a document feeder, which makes scanning, faxing and copying multi-page documents much more of an ordeal than it should be. The paper feed is the usual tiny HP paper tray that curls the paper around as it feeds, so that you never know (a) which way to place the paper if you are printing, for example, on letterhead, or (b) whether the paper will jam.
Summary: I bought it because it had the best price with shipping and was in working condition. A fax machine cost about the same and I get fax, copy, scan, and printing in one machine. I dislike the high cost of ink for the machine.
Excerpt: I contacted HP regarding this matter on several occasions in which I was told everytime I needed a new ink cartridge even if I installed a brand new one before calling them. I explained I had installed a new cartridge and I still was told it must be a bad ink cartridge and was told to get new ink again. My warranty is now up on this unit so I guess I just have to tolerate the lines. I just feel that I was told to buy new ink because this is more money for HP.
Summary: I like this item because it is easy to use and very clear copies. The only drawback: unplug it from the phone line (fax) when it storms,since i lost one by getting struck by lightning. Lightning went thru the phone lines and fried it.I liked it well enough to purchase another identical one.I would recommend this item to anyone.It also is nice that it takes different types of memory cards and is so easy to use.
