crall9099, Ebay
25 February 2008
  • Summary: It's a great printer and works well. It's also saves you money, because you can find ink cartridges for the printer in the $8 to $10 range. It uses the HP 26 cartridge.

Very out-dated

Don_Rusto..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: "This printer is unfortunately not the best around. While there are some positive aspects, the negatives far out weigh these. It is now quite an old printer, and so is certainly not up to the standards of today. Installation of this printer on anything above Windows ’95 is a nightmare. There is CD, but instead two diskettes for installation. What’s worse is that you can’t just use a default printer profile, it has to be the HP400 and drivers, otherwise ...
  • Pros: Price, size
  • Cons: Everything else  :  Quality, reliabilty, speed, ease of use

A great all round printer

PeterFarr..., Ciao
11 June 2001
  • Excerpt: "The Hewlett Packard Deskjet 400 is a great inkjet printer. It can be noisy and the cartridges are very expensive. The quality is very good and it is a compact printer. The printer has served me very well with continual use, for graphics and text. I have printed out many long letters and I am very impressed with the print quality. The printer is not very fast, but the printing is good quality. The make is a respectable one, being Hewlett Packard, although ...
  • Pros: Very good quality printing, compact and fairly quiet .
  • Cons: High replacement cartridge costs, approximately £20, although cheaper refills work well and save money .

Mmmmm Paper

al.humbie, Ciao
7 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "...do do not buy a HP deskjet 400 printer unless you wish for the printer to eat your paper! Ever since we brought our printer about once every 2 weeks it chews the paper up and then prints computer language and you then have to turn the printer off and pull the paper out and turn it on again and print it again and hope it does not eat it up! The ink is far to pricey at £25 a go. So please do not buy the paper eating printer! ...
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: eats paper

Avoid like the plague

  • Excerpt: "There are several problems from the outset with this printer. Firstly, its can definately not be called a quiet printer.. It makes the most horiffic, "clanking" and "clattering" noise when it picks up the paper and the noise of the actual printing is quite considerable. Also it is prone to paper jams, and I have had to, on several occasions, pull out paper tightly stuck inside the printer, trying not to rip it inside the printer. Another big ...
  • Pros: Smallish size, Can print on envelopes, stiff paper can be fed in through the back .
  • Cons: Only one cartridge at a time, noisy, paper jams .

Cheap 'n' Cheerful

5 July 2000
  • Excerpt: "...have had a number of HP deskjets over the years (although I am now on a Lexmark Z11) and have always found them reasonably good value for money. They seem to be the cheapest printer to replace when the old one wears out (this is why I have had 3 already!) but having said this they *do* wear out quickly. 2 out of the 3 models I had went in for repair at least once during their 'lifespan'. Paper jams were a bit of a problem too as I had to literally ...

hp DeskJet 400

nordiskstorm, eBay.de
27 May 2009
  • Summary: Ist zwar schon ein altes Modell, druckt jedoch einwandfrei und wirklich absolut zuverlässig, ganz im Gegenteil zu so manch neueren Druckern. Der Drucker ist etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, da er nicht der schnellste ist und auch nicht gerade der Leiseste. Aber wie schon erwähnt, absolut zuverlässig. Toller Drucker !!!
