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.
beware of too-good to-be-true deals and second-hand vapors

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.
Summary: If you run out of color or black, the printer/scanner will not work until the respective cartridge is replaced. This means that if you want to use merely as a scanner, you can't until both cartridges are new and working.
Summary: This printer works ok before the color cartridge problem. Called customer service at night stupidly. The call was forwarded to another country at no avail. DO NOT BUY IT AND DO NOT CALL THEM. Save your money and time.
Summary: I bought it most of the time it wants to print in gray scale and checked to see if I had to print in grayscale no that was not the prob. So I contact HP because thought the cartridges were leaking saw ink in the bottom.Decided bad printer took it back got another same model and quess what same thing...
Summary: Don't waste your money!!!It sucks ink, the photo quality is much less than expected, it constantly is getting jammed. It won't feed thicker paper for child id kits. It also now only prints in black ink.
