HP Photosmart 5510 printer is a bad choice.

1 April 2015
  • Summary: This printer has been used very little in the 14 months we've had it. It started with ink issues of it would say it's low &/or out & it wasn't true cause we had just changed the cartridges. Then the "paper jam" issues began.
  • Pros: Printed fast but noisy, good print
  • Cons: Loud, cheaply made, doesn't last, tech support very poor, online support a mess to wade through

You are buying a disposable printer.

  • Summary: This is a "disposable" printer: use it then throw it away. Mine worked for a just over a year and then it just stopped feeding ink. The printer said ink was full and everything was just fine. Both Yellow and Black: just stopped. Cleaning print heads 10 times - nothing, actually the output got worse.
  • Pros: Initially, hooked up to wifi without any problems., Printed documents OK
  • Cons: The HP laptop kept losing the wifi ID for this printer. Never had this trouble before with a printer., Slow, no hardware network connection - only wifi, Lasted just 8 months beyond warranty.

  • Pros: Fast shipping
  • Cons: Had to return to HP. Black ink would not print. HP acknowledges the problem with this printer. Returned and received a nice working , same model , printer from HP. Newegg offered a RMA but I choose to deal with HP. End result is I was very satisfied with all the offered services to correct problem.

Last HP Printer I ever buy

Ryan Z., Newegg
6 June 2013
  • Summary: I'm sure this printer functions perfectly fine and would otherwise be satisfactory. My problem is more with HP's sales mentality than with this specific model of printer.
  • Pros: Well featured for the price, never was able to use the printer in order to find out any other pros.
  • Cons: My dog chewed up the black setup ink cartridge before I was able to use this printer. I took a while getting around to trying to remedy this problem and when I did, HP was no help. A new ink cartridge was useless because the setup had not been done yet, money gone there, so I called HP to ask abo...

Disposable plastic junk machine

sndgyhi, CNET
31 May 2013
  • Summary: It worked until just after the warranty expired and then stopped printing. Text printed OK, photos were marginal even when using HP photo paper. Noisy and clunky while printing. I have to buy a new one and I will buy a more expensive printer in hopes it will make it more than a year before dying.
  • Pros: OK Scanning, Small foot print.
  • Cons: printer software stated printer not connected while using WiFi most of the time.

HP...never again!

HP_Customer_dont_Care, CNET
4 August 2012
  • Summary: The printer didn't work when I took it out of the box. It displayed a "printhead missing" error message. When I contacted the local HP support I received the information that it might take two weeks (!) to get a replacement.
  • Pros: Looks good - that's why I bought it.
  • Cons: I got a faulty product. HP customer service is a pile of...

This is not the printer you're looking for.

splendidham, CNET
18 June 2012
  • Summary: I think it was on gizmodo in an article that I read soon after I bought this unit. A reader asked advise on the best all in one printer available for a moderate price. The response was "whatever you do, don't get the HP 5510". I think that sums it up nicely
  • Pros: It was/is cheap. It's now even cheaper. It will eventually print. The touch interface is kinda nifty although I guess a little outdated at this stage.
  • Cons: Paper doesn't go through the feed too well and often comes out crinkled., It took well over 5 hours to get the printer connecting wirelessly., Constant alerts notifying that the installed cartridges are faulty.

works well in linux

Brian K., Newegg
2 June 2012
  • Summary: easy to set up the wireless connection from the touch screen. worked out of the box after wireless was configured. i got this to replace an old HP photo printer that had died, and to replace an Epson flatbed scanner with no linux support.
  • Pros: easy to set up fairly compact for a printer/scanner combo (listed as slightly smaller than the 6510, which is one reason i got it) wireless eprint memory card slot
  • Cons: low paper tray volume and small print cartriges (but these are a trade-off for the size) scan to computer not supported with the hplip driver
