Summary: After one day of use, has continuous paper jams that no one can fix. I can't really say anything about print quality since I cannot get it to print a page. An expensive paper weight. DO NOT BUY THIS.
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 The touch interface is kinda nifty although I guess a little outdated at this stage.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!"
27 March 2012
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.
Summary: The ink does not last that long at all, it can't print straight no matter how many times you go through the setup and can't produce Boots or other shop quality style photos. It can't print addresses on envelopes, can't hold that much paper, it gets jammed all the time, the ink is expensive.... it goes on. I've always thought that HP produced good products sadly they have let me down with this one. I wish I could return it but I am looking for an upgrade at the moment.
Summary: Completely failed after two years. To add salt in my wounds, just after I bought an expensive ink refill. Paper won't feed correctly anymore. Spent hours following online videos about cleaning the runners, which I did. Despite that effort, paper won't feed correctly. Don't think I'll buy a consumer printer again. USB sticks and running into town seems like a more cost effective option.
Summary: This printer and most other HP printers have a common print head fault which is basically unfixable. Having done lots of reading on-line this is a common problem and most people say just dont buy HP printers as the built quality is poor. http://www.techtangerine.com/2011/12/15/hps-dreaded-ink-system-failure/ Mine lasted a few months an broke just after installing new printer cartidges. Do you self a favour, dont bother.
Summary: I had an old HP3210, which failed oddly in that all the cartridges were fine, the software reported all ink levels OK, but all the prints were coming out a pinky-orange colour - in other words it was not using all the cartridges. Despite all sorts of attempts to sort it out, it would not work and HP did not respond to the issue when I tried its 'bulletin board'. Against my better judgement I bought a better (more expensive) HP5510 and was very happy with it.
Summary: This printer prints good quality images when it is behaving, Unfirtunately it constantly says there are jammed cartridges or the cartridges are missing or damaged and now just after the warranty has expired it will not print anything in black. I have tried everything from changing cartridges to going through HP's step by step online guide and nothing. This seems to be a common problem.
