Be careful with this printer

Summary: Be careful with the C309g HP Photosmart printer. The good points: it's a terrific scanner and prints top quality photos. Really, easily the best deskjet I've owned for these jobs. I personally experienced endless problems with the wireless printing. It could be the configuration of wireless routers, computers etc in my home. But endless calls to HP, Netgear and Mac failed to resolve the problem.
Summary: I have had an HP printer for years and it still works well, but the cost of ink cartridges is so high that I can buy a new printer for less. So I have bought a new all-in-one printer and stuck with HP for reliability. It's been a bit of a disappointment in truth. It's been easy to set up and the printing is good.
Nice compact printer but poor scans and cartridge life

Summary: I really liked my previous HP printer which I was planning to take to my office from home. I bought this one so i can scan at home. I'm not so satisfied. PROS 1. Wireless works well and with Apple Mac. 2. Reasonably compact for all it does CONS 1. Scanning. Even a high resolution the scanning quality is very poor. Ok for scanning reference documents where quality is not important, but line art or image scans are surprisingly poor. 2.
Summary: it is not an easy printer to set up. My laptop has not got blue tooth. So i have had to use the usb connection. Th instruction book sheds no light on how to use it wireless. It is a good printer i am sure, but only for those in the know. I am no boffin, My knowledge is limited when it comes to printers and computers. But it was cheap and it copy's easy and quick.
Summary: Bought one of these after my Epson stopped working after a short while, had HP's in the past and found them reliable so, thought I'd give them another go. Initial impressions were very good, seems very well built and was easy to set up, even latched onto my wi-fi without any problem....that is until I changed the router.
Summary: This machines doesn't feed well, not as good as my old printer won't be long before I change it, takes half an hour to do a five minute job!!! Contacted HP and all they said was clean the rollers, shouldn't have to do that! Easy to use otherwise and wireless is helpful.
Summary: I have always bought HP all in one printers, and have found that usually they deliver very well. This one, however, was rather disappointing by comparison. It is very noisy, when cleaning the ink catridges or preparing to print, which it seems to do all the time and I found setting it up quite complicated compared to previous versions.
Summary: It consumes a lot of ink and 2-sided print is not so goood 1)print 6.5/10 2)copy 10/10 3)scan 8/10 4)2sided print (no matter automatically or manually)5/10 5)wireless connection 5/10 6)usb connection 10/10 7)Very noisy 8)If you print only in black ink you need to adjust it from menu every time. Default system does not exist but you'll like it Now I am editing my review. I found the default system contacting HP and now I see that in comment someone already recommended me.
