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...
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.
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...
Summary: I agree with the other reviewers' comments about the ink cartridges. HP has totally scammed their customers by putting so little ink in the cartridges required for this printer. I've had this printer about six months and I've already spent more than the cost of the printer on ink (and it needs more...
hp in free fall with 1410 - but 5610 gives me hope for the future

Summary: I had a 1210 and it used the older #56 and #57 ink cartridges which were not a bad deal. The 1410 cartridges are less economical. The new HP business model seems to be that the more you pay for an HP machine, the more economical the ink cartridges will be for it.
Summary: The printer isn't more than an ordniary inkjet and they changed the ink cartridge size to very small ones so you keep buying them (it seems). But the worst part of this printer is the software that goes with it. If you want to install all the features be ready to let go of 780MB of space!!
