  • Summary: This printer is ok if you only want one or two copies but any more and the paper feed is useless. My partner and I bought one each and they are both the same, so it is not just a one-off. Would never ever buy another one.

  • Summary: this was sold as a HP Photosmart 5510 which it is not, it is model 5515 sold abroad I presume. I cannot get a driver for it, even from the HP site. This was to replace a broken 5510 so I still have a disc. On reporting to the supplier, he claimed that the disc would be ok for the printer. Well it is not, so it is of no use whatsoever. There were no ink tanks supplied either. The only good thing was that the printer was in excellent like new condition.

Really unimpressed

  • Summary: This printer has died after only 18 month's home use. It's been dogged by problems and has now completely stopped working. The ink is expensive.

HP can do better...

Peter Cunning, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Very noisy on start up.. What on earth is it doing..? Uses huge amounts of ink. I replaced the cartridge a few weeks ago, only printed about 40 pages since. Printed a 50 page document today and I get the low ink warning. I'm fed up buying cartridges. I'm on cartridge 4 and printed 676 pages in total. Thats 169 per cartridge and one of these was an XL. I maybe print 1 photo a year. Disappointed in this machine. Air print works well.

Very prone to stop printing in one or more inks when print cartridges are replaced

Mr. S. Bennett, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this printer and when the inks ran out I replaced them but the black cartridge refused to print despite all my efforts. I then bought a second hand one for £20 hoping to use the spare cartridges I had bought already. The same problem occurred again. I wouldn't touch this printer with a barge pole!!!

Disappointing

Cat Marsters, Amazon
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought my printer in May 2012; by July 2013 it had stopped working properly (and guess what! The guarantee is for one year only). If the printer wasn't used for a week or so, the print-head would get clogged and have to be cleaned (or the ink would come out all streaky). This isn't something you can do by removing the print-head: you can't take it out. You have to follow the on-screen procedure, which takes time, paper, and quite a lot of ink.

It sounds like a lot of these printers come with defects, so the bottom line is: it's not worth it.

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer when I went back to University, realising that although printing costs on campus were not unreasonable (we were even given free credits of 50p to start us off), getting work printed and retrieving it from a shared printer, especially around deadline time, was a nightmare. I'm awful for leaving things to the last minute, even now after having had a fair few years to grow up a bit, I still do it!

  • 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

Wireless issues

Greyman, Amazon
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Bought this for a Mac. It worked OK to begin with but the wireless connection was rather intermittent. Now I have to use the USB cable for it to work as the wireless function refuses to work. It feels cheap and the cartridges don't last very long at all. Disappointing for an HP printer as all the others I have had have been quite good.

Have had this replaced twice and it still doesn't work

Chocnews, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: Don't bother buying this 'value for money' printer. I bought one in May 2012 and the ink delivery system wasn't working. I was sent a replacement but it has randomly has problems including: it suddenly won't print all of the page, then it will work fine/it says the ink has run out even though it's fine the next time I turn it on/the scanner sometimes won't work.
