Excerpt: HP is a company that keeps spewing garbage. Don't buy HP printers or electronics of any kind. Had a camera--garbage. Had two printers--complete garbage. The laptop--battery died in 2 months, the back light burnt after 2 days and had to send it for replacement. The fan of the laptop keeps collecting dust.
Excerpt: I bought this unit to use at home, when I needed to make a quick copy, print a vacation map, or send or receive an occasional fax. This machine failed more times than it actually worked. Paper jams were the worst problem, especially during incoming fax transmissions. The ink cartridges didn't last long and a full set of replacements cost almost half what the machine did.
Excerpt: This printer was a severe pain in my neck (and other parts as well). The pictures were fantastic when they printed correctly. That was what kept me coming back. I said to myself a million times, "Self, it's not that bad. Once you figure it out, it should be good forever." I was lying to myself. Every four seconds there was a paper jam. Even when there was no paper jam, it thought there was a paper jam.
Very disappointed in the HP Photosmart C4680 Printer.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I was very disappointed in this printer and in the Hewlitt Packard customer service. The printer developed an uncorrectable error message after less than two months of use. I had purchased the service contract from Office Depot so that I would not have to bother with sending the printer back if it broke. They would not honor it because it broke before the original warranty was up.
Summary: TOOL BOX will not open. For over 3 months I have called, written, Emailed. A manager called in 3rd month & promised to look into my complaint & Emails He stated he WOULD GET BACK TO ME. NADAM CHECK all forums including HP's/ Just about every OS and version gets the issue ^^^ BUYER BEWARE^^^ LCD Freeze's, Printingat times skips leaving a sentance with no upper portion I have used HP printer for over 25 years, I am now purchasing a DELL. Check consumer reports.
Summary: DO NOT BUY HP PRODUCTS. THEY WILL CHARGE YOU FOR OVER THE PHONE TEC SUPPORT ONCE YOU HAVE OWNED THE HP PRODUCT FOR OVER 1 YEAR. I was just trying to update software for the HP printer to work with the new Lion OS Mac. The printer sucks anyway. $20 to update. They Do not Even Have a Update for my Printer Thats just a little over a year old. Lions been out a long time.
Terrible piece of crap- lots of continuing problems and then off to the tra
8 August 2011
Summary: My first c4680 worked for about a month- it also used ink like crazy... it jammed all the time and finally a small plastic piece broke off in the back- so HP replaced it under warranty for a price that was 1/2 of what I originally paid...I was pretty mad. NOW 6 months later this new one they sent is acting crazy. It has continually failed and I have had to mess with it for hours to get it to work over the past few months..
Summary: The HP Photosmart All-in-One Printer looked like a good one for me, particularly as I understand it to work with Linux. Perhaps it still would be, but the one I received turned out to be duff. Every time I loaded the paper - and I tried repeatedly, with different amounts and qualities - it would at the next stage flash up the message "Out of Paper", and fail to proceed.
Summary: In my experience the quality of print is fine. However, I don't use it very often (perhaps once a week). In the year or so I have had it, I estimate it to have worked first time no more than a quarter of the time. It always seems to need constant adjustment, or help feeding the paper through. Often it is simply 'offline' with no explanation. Extremely frustrating product.
