Excerpt: My husband already has this combo printer-scanner-copier even before we got married and after I moved in with him I used this mainly. It still works good even if has been in our possession for over 8 years now. One thing I can say is that it’s durable because …
Summary: I rarely write negative reviews, but my daily pain with this printer has motivated to vent here. I am on my second printer. The first was brand new and would only print yellow when printing in color. I used HP's online chat support to see if we could resolve the problem.
Summary: Absolutely nothing but problems for a mac user. Many bugs not worked out. Changing photo and regular print cartridges leads to 1) blank printouts 2) printouts where light blue and pink appear everywhere. Tech support no help. Ready to throw it away and go back to Epson.

Summary: this printer was offering a great deal so we went for it, but when we got it home, a strong toxic odor was emitted from inside the paper tray print area on the right side, under the electronics. It gave me a headache, so I returned it immediately.
Summary: Don't buy this printer. It's a POS if you know what I mean. If it's not the stupid cartridge error, it's a paper jam. I have never had so many issues with "paper jams" before. The printer will be doing just fine and then suck through 5 pieces of paper and get jammed.
Summary: At intervals HP 1610 stops printing & error message "out of paper" appears, but paper is adequate. Efforts to begin printing again always results in a paper jam. HP customer service sent me a new 1610 which repeated the problem exactly. 1610 will not feed paper when connected to Mac Mini OSX 10.3.9.
Summary: I read all the reviews of this all-in-one carefully, and even asked my tech support people at work to check that it would be compatible with my specific laptop. Then I bought it and was pretty excited - not for long.
