Summary: I had bought this printer new when I bought my PC, back in 2006, eventually through wear and tear, it no longer printed photos or documents. I really liked it so I saw one for sale on Amazon. When I received it, it didn't work at all! Instead of going through the expense and hassle of returning it, I threw it away. What a waste of money!
Summary: The printer works well with Windows XP. It will work with Windows 7 but not very well. Note: there are NO drivers available for Windows 7. Not that I could find anyway. I bought the printer to replace one that I had been using on an old computer which is running Windows XP. As I said, it works well for that application. Cartridges are still available too.
You wanna just print ? Nothing fancy? Get an HP 3845

Summary: these printers are straightforward and reliable. I bought this printer because I have a pretty fancy LExmark 905 and it is just more trouble than it is worth. You want to print something, in plain black and white, you put an HP 27 cartridge in your 3845 and you're going to be good to go. You can do color too but I haven't done that in years. I even have TWO of these things, one at my second home in another country, and I bring my ink cartridge with me.
Summary: Thank you for the super fast shipping and well packed item. The printer was exactly as described. I am extremely satisfied. My hp printer (exact same one) died last week and I wasn't ready to buy a new one. Thanks again.
Summary: I've had my printer for over 7 years, and it is still going strong. It prints photos on photo paper as if it was professionally developed. The grayscale option saves ink and yet still gives a good printout. And the ink is very inexpensive. I love it!
