Summary: I had this printer for about 1 1/2 years only and it already broke down. I was never happy with the software it comes with, it is cumbersome, overloads your computer with heavy code that's unnecessary, freezes all the time and takes a whole lot of time to install (and I have a decent 1.8GHz CPU, 1 GB RAM computer). I just wanted something that allows you to scan and print...
Summary: When the cartridges are replaced the machine automatically runs a test page. Fair enough. However, for some time now it runs the test page every time it is turned on. On tech assistance web sites, many others report the same problem. Forget HP tech support. This machine is a cartridge-eater. Avoid.
Summary: Everything is designed to be an inconvenience. Every time you turn it on, a full page test print is done and wastes ink. It prints horribly, fails consistently, and is awkward to use in every respect. It jams and doesn't feed correctly, print processes will hang endlessly. Stay away no matter what.
Summary: I bought this printer around mid 2005. It worked well printing and scanning. My usage is very low - I print a few pages a month and maybe scan a few pages a month. Some time ago the scanner just stopped working - all scanned pages came blank. I tried to contact HP support but they could not fix it - concluding that I should exchange my all-in-one with a new one. I bought an HP because I thought it would be a relable printer for a long time.
Summary: I have had this piece of garbage for over a year...shame on me for keeping it...you get what you pay for....noisiest! Clanking and banging back and forth....I have used more ink just resetting this so called consumer best buy. Just try and print out an envelope... I have tried to allign after each new cartridge and I get error cartridge stuck...or page did not finish printing...I hope this machine is outdated and would NOT recommend this to anyone!
