Summary: I travel a lot and I wanted a small printer that I could take with me that was durable and light weight. I found the HP Deskjet 460 met all of my expectations and even exceeded them. The color print quality is just as good as my color laser printer at home. The ink seems to last a long time and does not cost an arm and leg to replace. I use my printer with the wireless connection and it is GREAT not to have to lug a printer cable around with me.
Summary: This is an excellent desk top printer but way overpriced unless it is used for it's intended purpose, wireless. I was disappointed to find I needed to spend more money for software so that my HP PDA would communicate with this printer.
Summary: A little heavy, particularly for the every day traveler. More useful as a printer for those who have limited space and use a laptop. I use it with my MACBOOK PRO. Had no trouble setting it up. Prints quickly for such a small device. Transfer time is quick. Certainly useful up to 15 pages or so. I wouldn't use if for any major print jobs.
Summary: I purchased this printer based on its compatibility with my new laptop and the Amazon reviews. Sad to say, but after 3 hours with HP tech support one day and 4-1/2 hours the next, it just wouldn't work. We could not load the printer driver due to a set-up error message that insisted my laptop did not have Explorer 5 or better. It's a brand new laptop with Explorer 7.
Summary: The printer works fine when wired with USB cable but I've never been able to connect wireless. When I called HP for help I talked to someone who spoke poor english and she gave gave me a number for tach support. The number was no longer in service. I still have not figured out how to connect wireless.
Summary: I really liked the unit because as a contractor I need to type up estimates at customers houses and this fits the bill. I could not configure the wireless bit for my macbook pro but I just use it with the cables. A good workhorse.
Summary: After having suffered thru three years with a Canon 450 portable printer, the 460 is a nice improvement....better paper feed and faster B and W printing.It also allows for wireless printing, which i have yet to use. Happy with the purchase.
Only thing worse than the printer is the customer service TERRIBLE

Summary: I have owned a dozen HP printers over the years and just bought a 460wf. The printer has been nothing but trouble. I am fairly computer literate and was unable to connect to the computer wirelessly following the basic instructions. After 6 hours with "customer service" I was able to get it set up and working. The tech support people (the 6th group I spoke to) said it was "faulty drivers". 5 weeks later the problem returned.
