Slow printer, big and clunky, blew up my USB Ports!

Summary: I had this computer for one day and when it worked, it was slow and noisy. I took it on a trip and it occupied most of the desk I used for my laptop. How anyone could call this a "portable" is beyond me. What a waste of money! Then, after a week of use, I plugged it into the USB port and, WHAM!
Summary: I recommend that you pass on this printer. I tried to install the software and kept getting the following error: Setup has encountered a severe error and will exit. I went to the HP support site and followed the instructions there for this error and still got the error.
Blew up and destroyed my satellite tv input and, seemingly, my Plasma TV

Summary: I bought this printer and used it to print up material away from home twice. Then after I had plugged it in at home there was an explosion when I tried to connect it to the USB port of my computer. Our satellite TV quit working immediately, the input had been blown and had to be replaced.
Cons: The printer does not have IR (infrared) functionality. If you need IR functionality do not buy this printer. The item description is incorrect in that it states “infrared” under the other ports column.
