Summary: In a weak moment I fell for the hype about this printer. After having had such god-awful printers with poor print quality that always ran out of ink I wanted a great printer. This HP performs beautifully, no jams,copies are pretty,the colors are amazing, etc. The downside of this HP 1600 is that it is very large and takes up half my desk and the worst part of it is the ink supply did not live up to the advertising. Also, the replacement Ink cartridges are too expensive!
Summary: [...] Printing envelopes is a challenge. Just figuring out the proper settings to print envelopes was a headache. Moisture sealing envelopes cannot be used because they seal themselves as they pass through the printer. Only pull and seal envelopes can be used. Often the addresses come out splotchy with part of the address barley visible. After about 6 months of using the printer, everything I print has a vertical yellow streak and the left side of each page.
Summary: Printer prints fast and great from the PC it is connected to, but when I shared the printer and installed on other computers in the network, it does not print from those PCs. The job gets queued on the "serving" PC but hangs in the queue. I have to restart the print spooler service so the job prints.
Summary: I really needed a printer and purchased this item in a rush at a local store. Now, I really don't know why I purchased this item!! Con: 1) So huge and took up so much space, it won't fit on my desk space or side table; normal peripherial stand does not work for this printer! 2) Extremely heavy and it was such a hassle to bring this machine back to my room located at 3rd floor!
