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
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.
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.
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...
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 The touch interface is kinda nifty although I guess a little outdated at this stage.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.
Had the printer for only 10 weeks and it quit working!

Summary: We received our RECONDITIONED (Not New)replacement printer from HP and it turned out to be a nightmare. It had 3 problems, detecting the loaded paper in the tray, causing paper jams when it finally would print and when a scanned or printed document finally came through, it would come out blank.
Pros: We liked it as long at it was working correctly.
Cons: Getting it to actually "Print" when prompted using wireless connection was frustrating! Switched to using the USB to avoid the printing problems. The power switch quit working and we had to send it back to HP.
This printer has great qualities when working properly

Summary: The printer seems to be a well made printer with lots of bonus features for the price (scanner, copier, wireless connection, apps).The apps that come with the printer are a plus especially if you have little kids (coloring pages) or are looking to save a few extra bucks at the grocery store...
Pros: Sleek appearance, lightweight & smaller compared to similar printers, Touch screen is very easy to see allowing for easy navigation through setup, etc., Easily connects to wireless network & devices, Scans & copies in images & docs quickly &
Cons: Constant paper jams. I only get approximately 1 printed page for every 5 pages I try to print., Pages seem to have small ink floaters even though I have made sure everything is clean of dust and debris.
