Excerpt: I like the quality of the prints except for one thing. When it prints SOME things...(email, for one)...the print comes out really tiny. I know others with HP printers who have the same problem. Another problem was with feeding the paper. Often the rollers wouldn't catch the paper and would then continually say there is 'no paper', even when there is. Eventually, it will feed, after many tries.
Excerpt: I just bought this printer for my son who is just starting out in computers. He's in his twenties and has been kicking and fighting against computers since childhood. Well he now has an HP laptop and This printer to go with it. Hp is a great company has has good products all around. This printer not only scans, copies and prints but is great quality and extremely easy ot use. Set-up was a breeze and even my son said "Hey,even I can do this".
Excerpt: This little photosmart is the greatest photo machine that HP has put out. Prints pictures out great. No more speinding monies at the drug stores for pictures. Make my own at home. Clear pictures, like the professionals. Just down load from phone , camera, or pc, and walla you got your pictures. Thanks to HP. and thanks for the dollars you have saved me.
Excerpt: I was looking for an inexpensive printer to replace my old photosmart printer that had died. Our scanner was also on it's last leg, so an all in one was an obvious choice. Best Buy was having a great sale, and I selected the HP Photosmart C4200 Printer. The HP Photosmart C4200 Printer was easy to set up. The enclosed software was easy to install.
Excerpt: This printer sucks ink more than any printer I've ever owned. I initially purchased the C4200 model because the ink is readily available and is reasonably priced, or so it seemed. The cartridges for this are reasonable and readily available, but they don't last nearly as long as I feel that they should.
Excerpt: The HP Photosmart C4200 printer is a good basic printer, copier and scanner. I got this printer with my HP computer a few years ago, and the printer is fine. I haven't seen issues with colors, but my color cartridge is normally an HP cartridge. I do go with the cheaper options on the black ink. I really like that there is an XL version of the cartridge, allowing for more pages to be printed on that cartridge. I normally but the XL versions so I can buy fewer cartridges.
Excerpt: I messed up with the purchase of this HP printer. It works fairly well with printing black and white documents. Photocopy feature is ok as well. Otherwise I'm not happy with it. For the price I paid I could have gotten a better printer that would be quieter, and probably quicker. The scanning process is very slow and you must rename the document or you may lose it due to the fact that it is stored in a temporary scans folder under a simular name as other previous scans.
Excerpt: I got this printer as part of a bundle with my notebook. For the price I got it I think is a good printer. The only problem I have is it makes a lot of paper jam, no matter the quality of the paper. It's also a liitle noisy. But it scan, and print documents and photos (memory slots are included, and the menu helps you with the settings). If you need a printer to do a lot of work, then spent a little more in other printer.
Excerpt: Overall this is a great all-in-one printer. It gets the job done, and isn't hard to use. The biggest issue is whenever there is a paper jam (which has only happened twice in the two years or so that I have owned it) you have to reallign the printer. This entails printing out an allignment page, which takes ink, and thenscanning and copying it, which takes more ink. Aside from this, it has great quality and is overall very user friendly.
Excerpt: I like my printer, it works well. It does get jammed up sometimes if the paper isn't in the slot just right. I really love that I can copy and print pictures with out having to turn on my computer. The scanning feature is nice too, when I need to email instead of fax a document.
