This is literally the least reliable printer I've ever used ...
7 December 2014
Summary: This is literally the least reliable printer I've ever used. From print jams to connection and print quality issues. Photo paper doesn't load from the tray, even the paper that is shipped with the official HP ink kit. Even with fresh ink, and multiple cleanings, there are streaks in normal printing printing, and forget photo printing. When trying to clean the heads, multiple errors come up. Driver issues abound (Mac).
Summary: This is single handily the worst printer I have ever had. Which is saying a lot seeing as I have had 2 other HP printer that were complete crap. This printer will not print out a complete document and gives you an error message everything you print anything. Even when a device is plugged in to the printer it will just stop printing part way through your print job. THIS PRINTER IS AN EXTREME WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY! DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!
Summary: First one I got (fortunately I won it rather than actually paying for it) was DOA, with a bad power supply. Replacement has worked for a couple of years, but frequently loses its network connection. Ink is expensive and doesn't last long. Now it's displaying an "Ink System Failure" message -- of course, this happened right after I shelled out for four new ink cartridges. Buy something else. Almost anything else.
I hope you have lots of money to buy replacement ink... you're going to need it.

Summary: This is my first product review EVER! I didn't buy this printer through AMAZON, I bought it at a major office supply retail store locally. Doesn't matter where I bought it because it the product that I have a problem with. I will tell you why I personally can't recommend this printer. 1. If you are on a tight budget, look at a different printer. Yes, the printer itself is cheap, but that is the ruse. 2.
because it works better and more consistently than this one

Summary: I've had several HP printers. I've switched back from this one to one that is 10 years old, because it works better and more consistently than this one. It has wireless connectivity issues, difficulty loading paper (often feeding through multiple sheets at a time), will print documents that I've canceled, and many other problems detailed by other users. Beware.
Summary: Unfortunatly I bought this printer a year ago - one of the worst purchases I ever did. It's consuming a lot of Ink independent if you are using it or not. If you buy a new set of ink 40USD you maybe can print for 6 month (doesn't matter how many pages) because the printer is wasting all the ink in self cleaning. For me, I paid 40USD for 4 pages of normal text - this are 10USD for every page! I will never buy a HP Printer again.
Summary: I bought this printer several years ago from Costco and it is definitely the worst printer I have ever owned. I've had nothing but problems with connectivity (to a PC) from day one. I literally have to configure the wireless settings almost every time I try to use it. The problem I'm having now is that the pages are coming out completely blank even though the ink cartridges are supposedly full.
So long HP...you are obviously living on past reputation

Summary: Having just spent $80 for all new ink thinking that would stop the smudging I have come to the conclusion that this is a "throw away" printer not worth trying to fix. What a piece of crap...HP should be ashamed of its performance and offer replacement credit for those of us that chose to buy the HP Photosmart Plus.
