Just a Few Years Old

Amy Starr, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I have always bought HP printers and liked the features of this one (wireless, double-sided printing, and printing from an ipad). This printer worked well at first but then the problems started. It began printing 2 copies instead of 1, and I installed the HP patch. Then, the colors on photos, etc. were way off when printed, in spite of the cartridges being new. Finally, the color black wouldn't print at all, and it wouldn't go into alignment mode.

Anyone who gave this a positive review is on the take!

  • Summary: You know that scene in Office Space where the guys take the printer out in a field and beat the microchips out of it with a baseball bat? I fantasize about that anytime I need to print, scan, or fax anything. Most of the time it simply doesn't respond, if it does start a print job it'll get about 90% done and then ruin it at the end. Somewhere there's an ex HP designer laughing his ass off at the poor schmucks he stuck with this POS!

Nightmare cartridge experience.

silentauctionn, Ebay
18 February 2014
  • Summary: This has been the worst printer I've ever owned, I do not recommend purchasing it. It had difficulty sensing the cartridges, when that happens nothing works. You can't scan, access photos on your memory card, do anything from the menu. It just locks up. And that is using HP cartridges. Mine finally died when the carriage froze in place, no longer moved along the track and stuck under the deck where its inaccessible. Not happy with these cartridges.

Avoid buying any HP Photosmart printer product if you want to keep your sanity!

Ahmelody, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: HP Photosmart printers are a rip-off. I'm on my 2nd replacement one (C310A) from the original I bought. After complaining about guzzling ink many times, driving me to pure frustration, HP replaced my original unit 2 times, all giving me the same problem. Each time I called, HP refused to acknowledge there was this issue with their printer and I had to constantly make calls until something was finally done.

Buyer Beware

wagonmaster, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this printer and it was delivered. However, this NEW in the sealed factory box was defective. I returned it for a replacement. Instead of a New unit they sent me a reconditioned unit without contacting me about it! I accepted the reconditioned unit as I needed a printer badly. When I asked for a refund, I was offered $20.00 instead of the $50.00 difference! This is a form of bait and switch. This is not an ethical business practice.

Good quality printing when and if it works

Richard Lummis, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: The pros on this printer are its cheap initial cost and good quality output. Unfortunately, the list of cons is considerably longer. It is slow and ink is extraordinarily expensive, traits it shares with many, if not most, inkjets. However, its worst faults are its unreliability and the utter incompetence/indifference of HP to the problems. There is a known glitch that it will not restart after a power failure or brownout.

Paper feeder is easily broken

Wanli Chang, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I owned two HP Inkjet printers. The second one is C310. Both of them had paper feeder problem after only a few months of light usage. I will never buy another HP Inkjet printer again. The scan function is also problematic.
