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. Now that we have upgraded our computer, the scanner works to put pictures in but when I replaced the ink cartridges, it won't print anything except a few yellow dashes or it gives an error.
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. The check print cartridge and check paper lights blink and nothing will print. Again, no help from HP other than the option to buy an "upgrade" that will surely be another piece of junk!
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. It was about 1 month after receiving the item that I attempted to install this on my computer, so I could not return this to the eBay dealer.
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. The HP PSC 1315 photo sharing progrm (Snapfish) required RECIPIENTS of photos to log in (even my daughter refused).
Summary: I suppose I should have seen this coming by purchasing a printer for under a hundred bucks. As a graphic design graduate, not only will I need to print your typical word documents for cover letters and resumes, I'll also need to print full color portfolio samples. How these portfolio samples print is of utmost importance. Well, unfortunately for me, this printer does a horrible job.
Summary: Totally agree - that this appears to be an awesome deal. I as well paid about $100 for it. It instantly worked with my iBook. Other than being loud and slow - it printed, copied and scanned very well. After about 8 months of use - it started acting up with paper jams now and then. After a year - it jams up each time i use it. I have to print 1 page at a time and then restart as it jams each page. Probably worth spending another $100 to avoid this disposable printer.
