Summary: I absolutely despise our printer. I can't wait to get a new printer and I will make sure it is not HP (NEVER AGAIN!) and that it is not microchipped to fail. Yes, that's right: our printer has a microchip that makes it not work anymore because we've owned it too long.
Pros: Excellent printer and software. I gave it 4 stars only because it has yet to stand the test of time. Duplex feature works great!!! This is the third printer I've owned that uses the HP10 & 11 ink tanks. They're huge so you don't need to spend a fortune on ink. Also has replaceable print heads.
Summary: Been through many printers at home & office. The 1200 seems to be very good. Time will be the true test.
Pros: Excellent product. Ink cartridges are generous. Duplex feature = A++. Drivers & toolbox software work flawlessly. Firmware upgrade available on HP website.
Cons: None so far but it's only been 1 week. Why can't HP include a USB cable? Are the bean counters that tight? HP could take a big chance and include an $8 cable which saves me another ten dollar trip to the store to buy a non-HP branded cable.
