HP Photosmart: nice when it works but mostly frustrating!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: This printer seemed like a great purchase because I was really excited to be able to scan, copy and print all in one device. The other thing that I thought would be nice would be it's wireless capability, so that we could print to it from multiple computers. Well, the printer only seems to work about 10-20% of the time because it is constantly disconnecting itself from the network and takes a lot of complicated steps to reset.
Can't change default paper sizes to anything other that Letter!

Summary: The printer's nice. Build quality's good. Print quality's good. Setup and wireless seem to work perfectly for me with two notebooks running Vista. BUT! As soon as you try to edit the default print options the whole thing comes unstuck. HP has helpfully pre-programmed a handful of printing shortcuts / settings that you can select quickly when printing -- General Everyday, Draft, etc. They're all set to Letter, and you can't change them to A4.
Summary: I purchased this printer about 6 months ago. The good news- this is extremely affordable printer, has good quality printing, photos look good, device looks good and has a compact size (one of the few models to fit on my shelf), very good features. The bad news- the software packaged with it is truly diabolical. Running the CD that came packaged with the printer installed a vast amount of garbage on my computer.

Summary: Kann nichts was andere auch nicht können, aber das schockierende ist dass es erstmal unzählige Programme installiert um es via Wifi zu benutzen. Viele dieser Programme laufen auch im hintergrund weiter. Ich denke mir wozu installiert apple bei jedem systemupdate megabyteweise druckertreiber wenn man danach wieder 500 mb mist installieren muss um den drucker zu bedienen.
