Summary: I've owned this printer for several months. Like many others, I have discovered the carriage jam problem. Every few pages, it develops an unknown carriage jam and hangs up the carriage. There is no paper in when it happens -- it's always just after printing the page.
Summary: Have had this printer for about 2 years. It still works but tends to drive me crazy. NEGATIVES 1. If it turns off, it requires me to either print a test page or cancel a test page-both take about 1 minute 2. The software sometimes just break.
Summary: This printer is fine for everyday casual use. The problems start with photos. It will print 8 1/2"X11" inches, but the color is pretty awful. Smaller sizes, like 5"x7" don't print completely: half the photo is printed, half of the paper is blank.
Summary: I have two computers that I use this printer with. On one of them the printer keeps trying to reinstall the program. On the other one it's fine, but on both of them the scanning option doesn't work most of the time. I keep getting the error "USB cable not connected" but it is connected.
Summary: I own 2 of these, worked fine for a while then they both decided their ink cartridges were suddenly incompatible, I even bought them brand new official HP cartridges, and it still claimed they were incompatible. Shame on HP this year.
Summary: I had this printer connected to an Airport Extreme, which gave family members on the network access to printing, but not scanning. This has to do with the AEBS, not the printer. Everything was consistently fine, although it does run through ink quickly.

Summary: I have been using a friend's HP F4280 printer and I hate the fact that, in the process of installing the printer driver, it has installed seven separate programs on my hard drive (I can see them in the Control Panel/Programs and Features) It also put a number of icons on my desktop, runs...
Summary: Really glad I am getting a full rebate. After 3 days of use the ink cartridges for black and color were empty and I did not do that much printing. Seems to jam easily and confuse easily. I am going to go back to using my old printer and let my daughter use this one to print school work.
Summary: I purchased this printer couple of months back. Whenever I try to print after my Windows XP desktop has been inactive for a while it queues up the job and does not print. When I reboot my desktop, it then tries to re-install the driver that came with the printer and then the printer starts accepting...
