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.

HP 2600n

Amazon Customer, 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

Open at the store if you don't buy from someone online

Steve in Texas, Amazon
17 November 2007
  • Summary: My brother brought his brand spanking new NOT previously opened by human hands 2600N printer home from Best Buy only to find that it was missing all four toner cartridges. Thankfully Best Buy swapped it out for one that came complete from HP. This box had the original packing tape from HP still sealing the box. Luckily our Best Buy took it back, otherwise my brother would have had to fork over another $300 for toner.

USB interface killed Ethernet port

WiseOldMan, Amazon
7 September 2007
  • Summary: I migh have a defective printer but this is what I encountered. I want 2 computers to share this printer. I connected one PC via the Ethernet port, everything printed good. I than connected second PC on the USB port, everthing worked great. But the first PC can no longer print to the printer on the Ethernet port. The printer didn't even appear on the DHCP list. It just seem using the USB port would disable the Ethernet port forgood.

HP 2600N - Engineered robbery

rick52768, epinions.com
23 May 2006
  • Summary: Smart chips are smart for HP only, look for another company which does not trick you into buying toner cartridges when you do not need them. But do buy laser.
  • Pros: Good quality prints
  • Cons: False empty toner messages rendering the printer non-functioning until the expensive cartridge is replaced
