Summary: I have to say this is the best printer I have ever owned. I have had it for 10 years now. Yes, TEN years! That is ancient in the world of electronics. And it's still going strong! I keep thinking it's so old I should upgrade but then wonder, why? It still prints fantastic photo-quality images, and it has never malfunctioned in 10 years. How many other electronic devices can you say you've had and used for 10 years and have never broken down?
Pretty good workgroup printer. Good supply of maint parts available.

Summary: I support six of these units. Overall, they perform pretty well. Depending on how intense your usage is, you might require some add on parts such as: - more RAM - external hard drive to help with job storage and collating - IF you THINK you might need the duplexing capability, purchase the printer that INCLUDES it.
Summary: I can't believe that I've had this printer since 2002. I've used this a lot over the years to print endless pages for research papers, reports, etc., and I've never had a problem with it. It prints quickly, and uses ink economically. It's easy to use and can also print quality photographs. I also like that there are only 2 types of ink cartridges to replace: black and tri-color, which makes it simple.
Summary: I've had this printer for 4-5 yrs. now & haven't found anything complain about... The print quality is fantastic! The cartridges do last a long time, especially for their size. Granted, I've never used it to print photos because there's simply a better and cheaper way to do that than with a desktop printer (winkflash!). I've recommended this printer to clients & family alike... And will continue to do so.
Summary: I bought this printer in March 2003, and have moved 5 times between then and 2009 and don't know how people are griping about durability (are they drop-kicking it?). This printer has held up well, and is the best printer I have ever owned. The ink lasts a long time. The quality is good. The styling is sleek. It's not very noisy. I've owned other printers before and since of varying price ranges, and keep hooking this one back up. It just works.
Summary: This is the best printer ever made. Bought mine in 2002 for $50 used it as my main printer for 4 years until I got an all in one but still use this one to make photos. It makes better photo than Walmart photo center and with the right paper I have made photo that look like Olan Mills made them. Serious people can't tell the difference. It is also the best printer on ink usage ever made.
Summary: This is certifiably the worse nightmare product I have ever bought. After paying $4000 for it 5 years ago, the printer began to have multiple print quality problems within the first year and half. From that point on it was one maddening experience with HP [lack of] support after another.
Summary: We have been using this at our office as a netwrok printer for a year and a half. Mostly for documents, charts and company resumes. Pros: -The color laser printout of images is very good even on a regular copy paper. You get better results using bright white photo paper. We have not to try it on a glossy paper yet but it can. But just don't compare it with an inkjet yet. -Printing color images even for a full page is amazingly fast.
