This product is absolutely useless if you have Windows 7
4 February 2015
Summary: This product is absolutely useless if you have Windows 7. They won't release a driver for it to be compatible with Windows 7 so it is essentially useless. My work recently upgraded all our computers and now whenever I try to print an Excel document it simply spits out gibberish.
Summary: I got this printer from a garage sale for $5. I had no idea what to expect. Surprisingly this thing works really well. I print Letter, 11X17, and 13X19 with this printer. I can only print letter through win7 though. No biggie since I just made a WinXP virtual machine to print the big stuff.
Summary: Well, HP decided "limited functionality" was fine for an expensive, business-class printer. Do not buy this thinking it will work with Win 7 - it only prints 8.5 x 11, since they will not update the driver. My main workaround is keeping an older computer just to transfer files to so I can print.
A heavy duty large format printer for the home office.

Summary: I bought this printer to replace a previous one in the same line. It prints up to tabloid size (11" x 17"), which is useful for display work and oversize spreadsheets. Printheads and cartridges are seperate, so when you replace ink cartridges you're not also buying new printheads that you might not...
Summary: On the plus side this printer can handle A3 paper, large ink reservoirs and has a duplex printing option. On the negative side it very frequently jams when feeding from the optional second tray, is very slow when printing duplex and now the paper feed from the main tray has totally failed.
Summary: under no circumstances buy this product, it takes hours to print, half priced printers can 4 times better job. HP knows it's a lemon, they admitted that the driver is bad but they will not replace it or improve the driver, I am about to trow it out and get a half priced unit.
Summary: This printer thinks it is jammed non-stop, even when there is no paper jam. I spent hours on tech support and they sent me a refurb replacement, which wouldn't even power on. So they sent me another refurbished printer, and it is having the same jamming problem.
Summary: When our 2800 is working it's fantastic. We usually print 13x19 (building plans/CAD drawings reduced for easier viewing) and learned early on that thick paper is a must to prevent paper jams (I think that we use 40# paper).
Summary: I have had my HP 2800 for about 8 months now and I have never had a problem. I print very high volumes for my home business and it has never failed. It handles a huge range of paper sizes, I mostly print 13 X 19, 11 X 17 and it work great.
