"Non-existent paper jams"

CNET
29 November 2011
  • Pros: Print quality is good enough for our pharmaceutical formulations lab.
  • Cons: Besides being a bit slow, the printer is very paranoid. It thinks it has a paper jam and stops printing. One must open the door and push the button to get it to resume.

Expected More/ Got Less

Rascal, Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: Unit was ordered only to replace like unit that cost of repairs was thought to exceed value. Verified with seller before purchase that there should be no problem using existing cartridges since unit came without those & was advised it should not be a problem. Orded & received promptly as advertised. Unit would not print in Magenta or Cyan right out of the box.

Dissapointment

Dmitriy Zasyatkin, Amazon
12 August 2009
  • Summary: Because of the good reviews from everyone else, I thought that this would be a great printer, but it did not live up to my expectations. Its pretty loud, leaves toner streaks, and most importantly, the print quality is not good, and we have tried different things, like special paper. Which means that you can't print good quality brochures with it.

Decent Printer I guess, but leaky cartridges

D. FRY "belacyrf", Amazon
17 January 2009
  • Summary: This is not a "low use" type of printer. I found out that when not doing alot of printing jobs and letting the printer sit over time, the color toner cartridges will start to leak, which causes nice vertical lines on your print jobs. The only solution is to buy new cartridges, which at 80 per, isn't exactly easy to do. Also the networking ability is junk. I'm sure it's much better when directly connected, but the software finding this printer is spotty at best.

Beware the low price

John Hedley, Amazon
2 January 2009
  • Summary: Beware the low price on the HP 2600 series printers. The quality of black and white prints are good and the usual HP quality is apparent in construction, BUT: 1) The color is not only terrible, it gets wore over time. My HP 2605 started out OK, but now prints a magenta haze over 50% of the area of all color prints even if I change toner, run the cleaning routines or use different color management software.

"Repeated failures mar potentially fine printer."

CNET
8 December 2008
  • Pros: Quality permanent color printing at a fraction the cost of ink jets. Built in network interface.
  • Cons: Failure of magenta print slot make printer unusable. This identical failure has appeared in several of these printers which we have owned which suggests the supplier of this component has cut too many corners.

HP 2600n

Chandra D. Lewis, Amazon
17 June 2008
  • Summary: This printer is a primary network printer. It has issues when connected directly to one PC. If using Windows Vista, a Printer Spooler Error occurs. HP has no supporting drivers to fix this. Microsoft has no Windows patches to fix this. This error is famous as several forums exist to attempt and hack both the Windows spooler and the HP 2600n. Fought this problem for two solid days with Tech calls, internet chats and promises of return calls with a solution.

Prints great but per page cost is too high

geekalot, epinions.com
24 January 2008
  • Summary: If you print a lot, buy a big laser that uses big cartridges, if you print a little buy a cheaper ink jet.
  • Pros: Small, compact, easy networking, good color laser quality
  • Cons: Small expensive cartridges mean high per page costs and more junk to recycle
