Summary: I have one at work and liked it so much I bought one for my home use. It does a great job at printing picturesandprinting in general. The ink cartridges are easy to change and are very affordable when purchased on line. I have had some problems with it scanning documents. The very small print or lines does not get copied.
Summary: i really looked into this and a few other printers before settling on this one. dispite hearing that the print quality was poor and all the other gripes about this printer, i still bought it. and i couldn't be happier. text print quality is nice and clear, the 4x6 prints i've printed look awesome (note: only buy hp photo paper, i found out the hard way), the scans are better than my previous all in one and the stand alone scanner.
Summary: THESE PRINTERS ARE VERY GOOD. THE ONLY DRAW BACK THAT IT HAS WHEN SWITCHING FROM HEAVY PAPER STOCK FROM THINNER STOCK THE MACHINE HAS TO BE PROGRAMMED TO THE CHANGE.....MY HP460 MOBILE PRINTER DOES THIS WITH EASE....I ONLY BUY HP PRINTERS AND WAS A THE ASR SALES REP FOR HP IN MY AREA IN CALIF. SO I WATCHED THE PRINTERS WITH THE 02 INKS STARTING WITH THE HP 8250.....THE PICTURE PRINTS ARE NOT AS FAST AS THEY CLAIM BUT GOOD ENOUGH. I HAVE 3 OF THESE PRINTERS.....
Summary: I got it in great time- however it did like the starting ink that normally comes with a new printer however a great price was had too- could be the trade off. I like it though and it is very easy to use alone or with the computer. over all great buy.
