Summary: Do not buy this. It is a piece of junk. The only way to get it to work is to unplug it and wait for it to reboot. I have downloaded the "critical update" to fix the unresponsiveness, but it gets to the last step "device discovery" and just stops.
Summary: This printer is very bad. I have it sharing an electrical outlet with 2 other electronics, so sometimes I need to unplug it. When I plug it back in, it always asks to print a test print and to scan it. What a waste of paper and ink(Which is very expensive).
Summary: This is the biggest hunk of junk I have ever owned. It has frustrated me to no end. From the wireless printing not working with my mac, to the last straw of trying to print Christmas card envelopes with so many misprints and paper jams I was feeling less than cheery, and everything in between!
Summary: I have had this for just over a year and now it only prints randomly. I have to go through this plugging and unplugging ritual multiple times to get it to work. Most the time I get a "missing ink cartridge" error.
Summary: In the entire time I have owned this printer (8 months) I have only been able to print twice. Every time I would sit down and trouble shoot the wireless networking issues, a few hours would go by and I would get no where.
i've never had such hateful feelings toward an inanimate object before

Summary: I have the same problems that other reviewer had with having to unplug and re-plug the printer everytime i want to print something, even if I just turned it on, it always freezes the first time I try to print. Scanning from this machine is even WORSE!
Summary: I recently purchased the HP Photosmart C4599 because the last HP I had was an excelent workhorse. I had it for 6 years and only got rid of it because I was upgrading my computer. Big mistake. DO NOT BUY this product if you wish to use it wirelessly. I have had nothing but problems with it.
