Great, fast Printer. no start up software, but no worries
26 October 2014
Summary: This Printer prints extremely quick and the latency from when you click Print to when it starts is 1-2 seconds. No wires except the power one is needed. My laptop didn't have a problem connecting to it, but did have a problem in the beginning for the drivers. (Mac) I fixed it tho, you needed to go to a website. On a Mac, you go to the printer settings>Options and supplies>Open Printer Utility>Additional Settings> Open Web Server.
Summary: Uses tiny ink cartridges and even the extra large ones don't last very long. Two sided printing is possible but is a logistical nightmare most of the time. Printing is very slow except in draft mode. HP hates it when you use refilled cartridges and they don't mind telling you in screen displays that they know what you're doing. You can use those cartridges anyway if you don't mind the scolding. On the bright side, photo printing on good photo paper is outstanding.
Summary: I have to reset (Turn off and On) the Wi FI every time I want to print. I have been struggling with this issue since I bought the printer. I would not recommend this printer for Mac users. I rarely write reviews, so this has me a little fired up. One would think that Apple could do better with peripherals; I still love my Mac, but here is where I am very disappointed.
Can't do much with a printer that doesn't load paper

Summary: This printer worked for a couple of weeks. since then it's had a recurring problem with loading paper. It doesn't catch, grab, whatever. I found instructions online for 'fixing' the problem - basically shut down, disconnect, unplug, wait, plug in, connect, start; so a full re-boot. And at first this did 'fix' the problem, but only for a day, and then it returned, and after 'fixing' the problem a few times this way the fix stopped working.
