I do like the fact that you can still print with one ...

Summary: Bought this printer from sams couple of years ago. It works ok. It does the job I guess. My biggest complaint is that HP inks are so freaking expensive! And if the ink cartridge is expired, it doesn't work.
Summary: The unit looks nice and is simple to operate. Replacement ink is expensive but tolerable. The bad news here us after a few years if very light duty... maybe 2 homework printouts a month ...you get the dreaded "scanner failure" fault. That's it. Go buy a new printer.
Summary: I must say that this printer had performed without a hitch since 2009 but now there seems to be an issue with the software when used with Windows 7 64-bit, I have to fight to get the printer installed and then within weeks the problems re-appears. Hardware is rock-solid.
Summary: So today is the day that I junk my HP C7280. I purchased it from B&H Photo back in May 2008. So it's been a great 4+ years, BUT, I have to say I expected this outlast many printers in its class.
Summary: The printer itself is good as far as ink jets go. It takes forever to power-up and the ink doesn't last long. My biggest grief with HP is their software. Words cannot describe the amount of work involved to get their software to work properly without screwing up your computer.
Summary: Although almost everything works fine on this printer. There's one thing that pisses me off and that is when my photos that I print using the 4X6 photo paper seem to get cut off. It is usually the top and bottom portion of the photos.
Summary: This is an ok printer. Photos look great. Average print speed but it stops, whirs, makes noises and "adjusts settings" way too much for no apparent reason. The worst thing is that it is a total ink hog with expensive cartridges.

Summary: This is a great printer but please be aware the software is very buggy not really cmpatible with windows 7 Nor Vista the proper way. I constantly have to re-install it cause for some reason the printer fails to communicate wireless.
