HP laser printers are great, but this is the third disappointing inkjet HP ...

Summary: Very disappointing printer. Very hard to connect to internet, got frequent cryptic error messages. It takes six (!) expensive ink cartridges, which have a very short shelf life. Once the shelf life is reached, the printer gives an error message and refuses to work.
Summary: An absolute piece of garbage. As others have said, it uses colour ink to print black and white documents, meaning you have to buy more colour ink all the time even if you're only ever printing black & white.
Even if you are only doing black and white printing ...

Summary: Even if you are only doing black and white printing it will make you change the color cartridges. Even if you use the option to get around this it and they are never used it will make you change them because "the date has expired".
Summary: I wish I could give this machine 0 stars. Even though it *was* printing well, it has now stopped. I only want to print black and white at the moment, but it refuses to print anything, even black and white, when it says that one of your color ink cartridges is out of ink.
Summary: This printer is horrible - don't buy it! Instead of printing it constantly tries to sell you something (more software, more ink, etc) or runs all sorts of weird jobs, so you have to wait 10-15 minutes every time to get it to do anything!
Summary: I can't tell you how many times I have had to go and buy a pink or light blue ink cartridge just to print a black and white page of writing. If it is out of one pigment the printer will not print so one must go and buy the color even if it is an obscure color not being used.
Summary: This printer never worked the way I had hoped. The wireless capabilities were limited, the scanner was not easy to use, and worst of all when it was time to change the ink I spent $100 on ink and after I installed the ink a fatal message appeared on the screen and the printer never worked again.
You'll spend more time fixing paper jams then printing documents

Summary: This printer is a prime example of why I dislike HP products. The only reason it's even attached to my computer is it was my girlfriends. As I use it more for resume print outs and, being an EMT and keeping up with continuing education, I use it about 83% of the time more then she does.
Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this printer. It either jams or goes through it's little "cycle". As another reviewer said, the cycling it does is NEVER when you're not using it but right in the middle of a print or as soon as you hit the print button.
