Summary: If you plan on tossing this printer in the garbage after a couple years of use, don't read this review, it should work fine for you, it prints nicely, scanner was trouble free, the unit was easy to use. If you plan to keep it longer, be sure and put an ink collector underneath the poor thing.
Summary: The printer got an extra star just because it is the first one that has ever actually worked with my POS computer. I bought this at a garage sale for $5 - they had two of the exact same one. They warned me they could never get it to work so I thought I would give it a try.
Good Enough for minimal use, Bad for Business or Home Office Quality Prints

Summary: Out of the box, this is visually a good looking printer . The quality of its prints are quite a different story, mainly because the quality you see on your computer screen is not exactly what you will get from the printer especially when you have images and text on the same page.
Summary: JUST MY OPINION HI ALL, DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER. I have own mine for about 2 1/2 years; and lately it is not stop paper jams or wrong size. Error messages.It was a once an a while deal, but now I can not count on it. Note I have changed paper stock several times and with only HP paper.
Summary: I purchased the HP 3210 to replace a six year old laser printer. I read several reviews before deciding on this model, but apparently I didn't read closely enough. Setup of the printer was a breeze, and for the first week or two things seemed to work flawlessly.
Summary: I purchased this printer 2 years ago to replace a much simpler color printer as I planned to do more photo printing and color documents. The software installation took two tries before everything was installed...and that took a great deal of time.
Summary: Comments about HP Photosmart 3210: This printer is better left for kids or small home printing. I don't think I'll be buying another inkjet. The calibration thing takes too long and it's just too loud, and it seems to want to do it over and over. I thought these printers had a power-save mode.
Summary: When mine had an irretrievable paper jam and I took it in for repair, we found out that HP has discontinued both the printer and the pieces (gear replacement) needed for (a relatively simple) repair. Shame, shame, H.P. You just lost my business for good.
