Summary: Works great. Very quiet. Fast printing. Excellent color. Saves paper by printing on both sides. Saves money buy having separate ink cartridges. Very clean and able to use almost any kind of paper.
Summary: So far, there isn't drivers for Vista, so that's the one drawback that I have with this printer... This unit prints great, it prints fast and I use it to print double-sided manuals all the time. I've bought about 10 of these exact printers on Ebay over the last few months. I also have a refilling station and am able to refill the INDIVIDUAL color ink-tanks at a HUGE savings.
Summary: THese units really save you money in an office environment that does alot of color printing. The upkeep on these is alot cheaper than a fleet contract on a color copier! The replacable heads and inkwells really save you money vs. a regular cartridge system.
Summary: I purchased a HP 1100 a year ago and it lasted 6 months (three weeks before my daughters wedding so I needed it to print invitations, programs ect) before a light came on and I couldn’t get it to print. I e-chatted with HP India tech support and almost two hours later he decided that I needed to send it to HP to have it refurnished for $200.
Summary: This printer is a great choice for a home office/hobbist. It prints up to 4800dpi (good enough for most color prints) and I especially like the built in duplex mode for printing manuals. The ink refills are expensive (most are) but last a reasonable amount of time. But for $199....a great buy. Later, I plan on purchasing a separate printer for just color photos (dedicated printers are the best way to go). For now, this one does just fine for the price.
Summary: I was impressed by the features of this printer. I purchased it to print tech manuals, two sided pages. very happy with the first 60 manuals or so. Setup was not that difficult and operation was simple. After the baby cartridge supplied with the printer ran out of black ink, I let the printer sit for about two months, partly because I did not need it and partly to get the best online prices for a new cartridge (unavailable incidently in my small town) After installing...
Summary: It's a very quick printer and the feeder holds a lot of paper, but there are two major snags. There are four cartridges plus four printheads. Plus, there is very little support offered in the box: the only booklet refers to installation. The CD only offers support for the networked version of the printer. With all the pieces and parts, nowhere does it list which cartridges & printheads to purchase. There is no indication how long a printhead should last.
Summary: Having read magazine and on-line reviews from a variety of sources on the 1100 and previously owning a HP 932c, I thought this was the printer for me. (I need good text and color graphics capabilities to create teaching materials for elementary and middle school students, as well as letters to parents, etc. Not necessarily professional quality, but it should be neat and clean.) I followed installation instructions exactly. There were no problems there.
