Summary: A little noisy, but it doesn't seem to be hurting itself when it grinds a bit. It likes to bounce around some also, but stays on its stand. Print quality is excellent. Use a lighter bond paper, I use 20. The cartridges that come with it do not last long, but for $12 I picked up a replacement (Black which is all I need) good for 500 sheets, medium density. I use it for text, charts & music scores. For ~$100 purchase price, it's great.
I really like the quality and the performance of this printer.

Summary: I actually got this printer as a Christmas gift and really liked the quality of the pictures printed and the ease of setting up and actually using the printer. However, the pick-up rollers stopped working about a year after I got it. I read mixed reviews about the product and thought about replacing it with another model or brand. I just didn't find one that I liked better---so I ordered this same exact model on eBay for a very good price.
Summary: It's a very basic printer that has outstanding print quality. This is the 4th HP printer that we've had over the years and we've always been completely satisfied with their ease of operation-- power up, load paper and print! And the price was right.
