If you can't try a printer don't buy it

Tired of whining, Amazon
22 April 2012
  • Summary: This is a good printer, regardless of the other posts. If you buy something with moving parts and assum it will work for you WITHOUT DOING ANY LEG WORK, the joke is on you! And now e Who looks like an ass. It sure isn't the person that gets up and finds one of these things so they can see it, read about it, hear it work. And it sure is not Amazon or Hewlett packard. Now this is the most helpful advice on the page.

Slow and loud

A. S. Montgomery "outdoors boy", Amazon
13 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Xerox. This is much slower, much louder and doesn't print as well. It has lasted longer than the Xerox did so there is a plus, print costs are a little higher. This machine is ideal for a back room that is not occupied because it is loud. Not unhappy with the purchase, just would have gone a different direction if I knew how loud it was.

"Utilities function has not worked for 1½ years"

MDIProduktion, CNET
24 May 2009
  • Pros: Well? The printer worked fine a while, but whithout giving us any warning it could not suddenly print yellow colors.
  • Cons: The HP Laser Jet 2820 was provided with certain software: you were at the beginning able to see the status of your printer through the Utilities function. After about a year this function disappeared. We have had several contacts with HP, but no help

  • Pros: High quality printing of photos and text, Read Iris Pro scanning software works great and special features are accessible with user friendly menus.
  • Cons: The machine is a bit noisy so placement is key to avoid objections from users.

Mac Users Avoid!!

Relinda, Amazon
20 March 2009
  • Summary: I don't have lots of experience with this printer, but I am trying to get it to work with a new iMac using OS 10.5.2. What a nightmare. The HP software is rubbish. I can get OS X to print using the built-in printer control, but any other operations, like scanning, are intermittent at best. That's really the worst part. One minuet, the thing works, then HP Scan crashes and everything grinds to a halt. I have embarrassed myself twice by proclaiming the printer "fixed!

NOT a good machine

Nom de Bloom, Amazon
17 November 2008
  • Summary: We have five people in our office, all run Windows XP, one runs a Vista machine too. On average, once every two weeks we have to reload the software on our PCs to make the Scan To function work. Occasionally we lose the ability to print, and have to reload the software for that too. It might work okay in a small office with peer-to-peer networking, but in our corporate branch office it does not work well.

A+

  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2820: This printer has really impressed me. [...]was easy to set up and install, had even better costumer service than I expected and hasn’t had a problem in a 4 months! I’m a heavy duty user and expect a lot out of my printer and scanner. I print anything from calendars to business cards with the greatest detail of quality. I personally never have a need for the fax but it does work. Great product all around.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Print Quality, Reliable

More good than bad with this printer

Cara, pcRUSH.com
12 October 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP LaserJet 2820: Honestly, this is a noisy printer, and I'd like one that maybe prints a bit faster on the color graphics pages, but that is about it on the negative side. HP printers always tend to be loud, but they are also durable, dependable and they give a good quality product. This printer is no different. The real plus is how fast the first page prints from sleep mode. No more waiting for 8 minutes for the printer to wake up and work!
  • Pros: Durable Construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Reliable
  • Cons: Slow Operation

Drivers needed

Gerald Kaiser, Amazon
14 September 2008
  • Summary: I bought this unit over two years ago (2006) and was very disappointed when HP took until March 2008 to come up with their first (and so far only) driver for Leopard (OS X 10.5). Even now some parts are missing like software for the envelope-printing widget. I tried calling HP Support, but they could not do anything for me. For $1000 (the price I paid two years ago) I expect better.
