I literally despise this printer.

Martha J. Slater, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Hit or miss as to whether it will actually print when the command is sent. Will not print in grayscale when black ink runs out, which it does constantly. Insanely expensive to operate due to low ink volume, with crappy color resolution to boot.

Ink Hog

Joseph S. Danisewicz, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: Had I looked for reviews prior to buying this piece of crap I would have discovered that it would cost a fortune in ink. Even the reviews on HP's own site trash the machine. Copies are exceeding .40¢ per page for black and .80¢ for color on the most economical settings.

Great Printer

Alvin Borden, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: I got exactly what I needed to replace the printer I had. It works perfectly and even seems to print pictures a little clearer. This is my first purchase through Amazon , but it will definitely not be my last. Thanks for the awesome service and guide to what I needed to buy!

Easy to use

  • Summary: This printer is really easy to use. I had one before and wanted the same and Amazon was the only place I could find it for a great price.

One of the worst products i've ever had.

Eduardo Vázquez, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: Without doubt, one of the worst products i've ever bought. I've already got a replacement, getting the same result with the second printer: it bends almost all the paper sheets, tearing many of them, and getting stuck continously. A noisy unusable piece of sh**t. I'll never buy an HP product again.

Had to smash it... it was that bad.

JBT, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: Had it a few months, have never been able to use it. It is either out of ink, or it gets lost (the printer literally loses its wireless connection and then doesn't reconnect without several restarts). The ink costs more than the printer and runs out after 3 or 4 full pages (2 if it's photo quality).

What a piece of junk

Timbo, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: First one failed in 6 months. Wouldn't connect to anything. Warranty replacement stopped printing black after 13 months. HP's answer is to offer me a discount on another one. What a joke. From now on I will buy Epson.

Do Not Get This!!!!

WowZowNowCow, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: This is unquestionably the worst printer ever made. 1)It only prints PDF files one page at a time, unless you spend two hours on the internet figuring this out, change the settings to "images", and then, in no circumstance, will it print more than five pages.

Broke down too quickly

John Myre, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought this in June, 2012. My wife and I print 20-30 pages per week. Black printhead clogged two weeks ago. Ran an HP utility to unclog the printhead, and the printer worked OK for a few days. Now it won't print at all, even after repeated cleanings of the printhead.

Confused by bad reviews

Ms Marsha, Amazon
9 September 2013
  • Summary: I'm genuinely confused by all of the bad reviews for this printer. I've had it a while and have had no issues with it. One review mentions the printer is loud, but I find it to be quiet. I'm perplexed as to how much people seem to hate this machine!
