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. 2 new print cartridges - nothing. tried all HP recommended solutions - nothing. So you should not expect it to last about 2 maybe 3 packages (set) of XL ink.
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. HP support is marginal.
Pros: OK Scanning, Small foot print.
Cons: printer software stated printer not connected while using WiFi most of the time.
"This printer has great qualities when working properly"
26 February 2012
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.
Excerpt: "...below. ===Software=== I had never used HP before so was pretty new to the software. To be honest I prefer to use my own software for scanning and managing printing, so I found it an extra hassle. I also think that each time it opened up it slowed down the whole computer. Also, although you can dismiss them, if you buy genuine HP inks you get a message saying that you have a reward to claim. I tried claiming the first time but it was just a money-off ...
Pros: Lightweight, easy to use and if not faulty, probably good quality printing
Cons: Costly ink and high chance this product will have faults, not worth the risk
Summary: As noted by other reviewers there seems to be an alignment problem with this printer. I returned mine to Amazon for a refund and bought another from a different supplier in case this was just a batch issue. Alas, I was unable to align the print on the second printer either so it also went back. I'm now thinking of getting an Epson.
Summary: Purchased to replace another HP printer which had been excellent, but wanted a wireless printer and this appeared to fit the bill. The printer itself is quite sturdy and the print quality more than acceptable for everyday printing, however no matter what I did, it would not print straight on the paper - there was always a smaller margin gap at the top-left than there was on the bottom left. Returned and purchased a 6510 instead. Excellent service as always from Amazon.
Summary: I cannot believe the number of positive reviews that this printer has on sites all over the internet. On first turning on, the graunching noises it made are horrible. Any other movement of the carrier continues to produce excessive noise. HP replaced it very quickly, but lo and behold, the new one is just as noisy! The print quality of photos is decidely average as well...and I'm basing this on my previous printer, an 8 year old HP cheapie.
