This printer is fine for everyday casual use
Central Coast, Amazon
17 September 2015
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: When I first bought this printer it worked well. After 4 yrs of use the scanner stopped working, the alignment function stopped working properly after 3 yrs of use and now ink leaks on the paper and inside the unit. The leaking of the ink started 2 yrs after use. This is a waste of my money.
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.
Installing the printer driver puts way too much junk on your computer

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: 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: 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.
It's not the print quality or features that makes me want to set it on fire

Summary: Well, to start with, I want to say I like the print quality just fine. It has many features and is everything you'd want from a printer, at least on paper. (heh heh) It's lower DPI so the ink is affordable. It's an HP, it must be good.
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: I was satisfied with this printer at first but then it just started to annoy me. It did a good job of automatically aligning newly installed cartridges by printing a test page and then scanning it back in.
