Summary: I just bought the HP PSC 1315 a few days ago and got it today. I was very excited to own this printer seeing that the last one that I bought was four years ago and since then, I had lost the cables to it (both electrical and the parallel port).
Summary: I've had luck with HP printers in the past. This one prints and scans ok for the low price BUT if you're a Mac user, beware. I use OS X, and the printer worked, but when I tried to print from a Classic app (Photoshop 6) I got an error message.
Summary: I bought this refurbished off a respectable dealer off of eBay,but I didn't realize that his guarantee was only for 7 days until it was too late. The USB port on the printer was dead on arrival, and I could not establish a connection to my computer.
Summary: We totally endorse Alan G. Kirk's review. No excuse for this sad excuse for usability. Took it back. We believe the technical support "person" is an avatar running the Eliza program. The only reason for 2 stars rather than 1 is that the printer works. Other alleged functionality is not really there.
Summary: After I installed my HP PSC 1315 about one year ago, I could not run my Jasc software programs. I could not use my Epson Stylus C60 as an alternative printer, although it remained installed with my computer.
I have had this thing for years, wow am I lucky !! lol

Summary: I don't do a lot of printing or copying, just occasionally. So I guess that's why this heap of junk has lasted so long. But just like everyone else, I have gotten error messages. Paper jammed, no it's not . No ink, just bought some.
Summary: We purchased this printer from an electronics store a couple of years ago, when we realized the OS on our computer was not compatible, we just used it for copying, which was ok and it served its purpose.
Summary: This printer worked well for one year. Then the scanner went out. Next went the copy option. Hp support of course was no help. A month later...goodbye printing option! The paper jams and constantly tries to feed without even pressing print.
