Average cost of printing a b&w A4 letter - £2 to date
29 November 2012
Summary: Extremely annoying things about this printer: All inks have to be present and full to print in any color. This is not the case with many other printers - useful when you just want to print out some notes. The inks dry out very quickly even if you use the power button to shut down as per HP instructions. Even though there is ink, and the test page prints out perfectly, it will continue to tell you that you have no ink and refuse to print your documents.
Summary: I bought this printer a year ago to replace my last time consuming annoying printer (again another HP!). The guy at the shop said that this would answer all my printing problems... he lied. I made two mistakes that day, I bought another HP and I trused some advice from PC World, something that I had not done for some time. When I try and print, the printer tells me that it's having some issues with one of the trays.
Summary: I bought the printer about eighteen months ago, and have used it almost exclusively for photographs. It has printed several hundred, but has not really seen hard service. The printer is well-featured, prints good quality images and is reasonably economical. Set-up for use on my wireless network was simple. I now find that the printer has developed two problems: 1. it always reports photo paper as out, even when fully loaded.
Summary: I bought this printer just over a year ago and didn't opt for the extra warranty. Unfortunately, almost days after the one year had expired, the transformer expired too! And due to the fact that printer making companies put in as much effort as possible to create transformers with the most complicated plugs and cable ends, I have not been able to use this printer since. HP do not sell the spare parts for this and neither does amazon... A real pity!
Summary: I bought this printer about four months ago as I was tired of buying expensive ink cartridges for my previous printer which ran out only after a few prints...especially as I only print documents infrequently. Firstly, the set up was very straight forward...especially as I linked it via the wireless connection to my home network. Furthermore, the photo quality was outstanding. The printing for both coloured and black & white was as expected.
