Expensive piece of junk.

Thomas Fuller, Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: My C410a literally drinks ink. I have to constantly clean the print heads, which consumes even greater amounts of ink. It will not accept refilled/remanufactured/generic cartridges at all. At nearly 2 years since the date of purchase I received the error message that the "cartridges cannot align" and I can no longer print in black. Replacement printhead costs 75. I have been very disappointed with this printer since the day that I bought it.

HP Quality is Very Bad

William D. Williams, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: My HP printers have never lasted more than 3 years. The C410a literally guzzles ink. I had to constantly clean the print heads, which consumes even greater amounts of ink. Almost three years to the date of purchase I received the error message that the "cartridges cannot align". I looked for a replacement printhead and found thast a rebuild costs $50 and a new one costs $80. I have other printers, (Canon and Brother), that give me far less trouble and use less ink.

don't buy

Jared Carey, Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: I have been very disappointed with this printer since the day that I bought it. Printing from a Mac - you need to make sure you laptop stays connected, otherwise the print will stop. Had to disable UPnP on the printer - as it was freezing up since the HDHomeRun Prime apparently interfered with whatever address this Printer is using.

Worst fax machine in the world

D. zheng, Amazon
31 January 2014
  • Summary: I like many other was seduced by the fact that this machines promises to do it all: print, scan, copy, and fax. In actuality it gives me headaches, wastes my time, and makes me want to cry. Faxing documents of 1-5 pages is massive pain. The feed tray is poorly designed, so paper dosen't feed into the fax properly even for 1 page documents. That often means I have to fax the same page 2-3 times.

Only one star b/c unable to leave a ZERO

HPh8tr, CNET
27 January 2014
  • Summary: Horrible printer. Horrible HP support. This printer is the one that changed me from a die-hard HP consumer to a never again in my life purchase a HP consumer. I had read the reviews and still purchased this printer believing HP could not make a printer as bad as the reviews but I was wrong. Advice to anyone considering this purchase. DON'T do it. Moving on to a Brother.
  • Pros: it offers many options
  • Cons: horrible wireless printer, continuously "disappears" from printer folder, the only fix is to uninstall all software & reinstall, this is the fix given by HP support, scan option from pc quit working and was never able to fixed

Wish I could give 0 stars

Ninnee, Amazon
25 January 2014
  • Summary: Horrible printer. I've always been a HP die-hard customer. Although I read no so good reviews before I purchased it I did not believe an HP printer could be so bad. This printer although prints well does not work properly for all functions. I print wirelessly less than 4' and have had nothing but trouble with this printer.

Slow, cumbersome, expensive

A. mack, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: This thing eats up toner and even if you refil your cartridges yourself it is stil ridiculously expensive. Don't get if you expect to do much color printing. It is very slow. The stats on speed must be from when it starts to print, not from when you click the print button-- it goes through all sorts of warm up, preparation, check the oil, call grandma, then starts printing. The interface with my Mac has crashed and I have had to reinstall the driver.

Warning Don't buy it's junk.

James, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought a new one of these and paid almost $300.00 and it had to be replaced within 6 months. HP said they couldn't repair it at all and I would have to buy a new one. The replacement one after a year has decided not to work either now (ink system failure). I will never buy another HP product.
