Summary: I got this printer for free with my computer. I should've haggled and made the computer store pay me to accept it. Yeah, it's that bad. It takes too long to print, cartridges are costly and don't have any longevity. The software package is frustrating to use. My last HP printer sucked too. Are there any good printers out there?
Summary: I bought this printer specifically to print onto cd's and dvd's. Unfortunately, the software that comes with it (Roxio Express Labeler) simply does not work. It will not allow you to layout simple text. You must use one of their FOUR templates that look awful. There is no deleting or altering of their templates. The printer does not play well with other software, so I am pretty much stuck. If you ever plan to print onto CD's or DVD's, STAY AWAY from this printer.
Summary: Rubbish! My sanity is worth far more than the $150 price tag. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT! I have bought six HP products in the past 18 months and have been happy with the others, but I'll definitely be going back to Canon for my printer.
Pros: Scanning output is great
Cons: Paper jams no matter what kind, how its positioned, etc, etc. Won't print to disc. Slow.
Summary: Absolute waste of money. I'm not even going to bother returning it to the shop.
Pros: I got about 5 photos printed...
Cons: I wanted more than 5 photos printed. Depite around 20 attempts at ensuring the photo paper was dead flat, slightly turned up, slightly turned down it refuses to print any more photos. I was dubious about buying HP because I've had a bad run with another piece of their equipment, but the price seemed right. Never again...
Summary: Just bought new color cartridge to print photo invitations in A4 size. it printed 6 pages then blue and yellow ran out and it printed the following 4 pages red. seriously 6 pages. Color cartridge was $34 paper was $6. total $40 for 6 pages. thast $6.60 per page. never again. buy any other printer for any cost.
Pros: Prints on CD's
Cons: Packaged cd print software wont start. all the unnecessary hp software that gets installed on your computer. CD tray doesn't know when to start pulling the disk in half the time. incredibly loud scanner, sounds like a dotmatrix printer in full swing.
Summary: also bad because you need to have both the color and b&w catridge filled - even if you only need to print in B&W. Difficult to refill the cartridges urself and very, very expensive to buy. Get a canon.
Conclusion: Recomiendo no comprar HP, tengo problemas con la notebook dv 3000 y la impresora y hp no me da solucion y ya he gastado mas de la cuenta en repararlos y siguen sin funcionar.
Cons: Los productos hp son malisimos, tanto las impresoras como las notebooks, traen problemas de fabrica y no se consiguen repuestos y si se consiguen hay que pagarlos fortuna. y algunos me dirán que imprimen lindo y esas cosas, pero la mayoria tiene problemas con estos productos y son de origen.
Conclusion: - la compre con sistema continuo y me salio malicima porque las mangueras son muy pesadas para la hp. y me generaba porblemas de impresion. El dia que la mande a arreglar habia 7 personas con el mismo modelo y con el mismo problema renegado.
Pros: es muliti funcion
Cons: la compre con sistema continuo y me salio malicima porque las mangueras son muy pesadas para la hp. y me generaba porblemas de impresion.
