Summary: I have owned this printer for 4 years. I used a laser jet for my document printing and this for photos. It came in a computer bundle. I have thrown out far more attempts at photo prints than I have kept. I have used it with Windows XP and Windows 8. With windows 8 the performance has gotten much worse. I am ready to scrap it. Between the price of the cartridges and the price of the Premium Photo Paper photos have become very expensive when you factor in the discard rate.
Summary: Unpacked it, fired it up, and started printing. No problems at all...until after I had printed a few pages. Then the black ink stopped printing. I tried EVERYTHING to get it flowing again. There was plenty of ink in the cartridge; it just wouldn't print black anymore. I could chalk this up to a freak incident, but in fact the only reason I got this printer in the first place was to replace my previous HP printer, which had precisely the same problem.
Summary: Buyer beware! I could not get the printer to work. It was advertized as new but it certainly had a defect. I am very hesitant to buy any thing on ebay. I bought the product as I had one identical and had several ink cartridges. I thought I would be money ahead to purchase the same printer and not have to buy ink cartridges. Experience is a good teacher.
Summary: The print quality is good but the printing cost is very expensive. After new cartridge installation, I can usually print out 30-40 papers. This means the printing cost is about $1 per print (one 92 + one 93 cartriges cost about $40). You might be able to use Kinko with better print quality and at less cost.
Summary: This thing eats ink cartridges like they're going out of style. You'll spend a small fortune buying replacements. I print documents with double-spaced text in Fast Normal mode. At most, I get 100 pages of printing per cartridge - at $20 bucks a pop. What a ripoff! The reason, according to another one-star review, is that these particular cartridges contain only 5 ml of ink, compared to 42 ml in other cartridges.
Summary: I have an HP2575v. This printer has never been able to feed paper of any kind. Imagine having to run to the printer serveral times to clear paper jams during the course of a print job. Why have a networked printer when you have to put down your wireless laptop and run to the other side of the house whenever you print. It has never fed a single sheet of 4x6 paper. The documentation says alot about using HP paper to print 4x6 pictures.
Summary: This printer forces you to use only the HP92 and HP93 5ml cartridges, even though HP makes the same physical cartridges in larger yield models (HP94, HP95, HP96, HP97, and HP98). The printer only accepts the lowest yield cartridges. Figure this: If you had an older HP printer that used the standard HP45A cartridge.... that cartridge held 42ml of black ink and costs $30. This model uses the HP92A which holds 5ml of black ink for $20.
Summary: I am very disappointed in this printer for two reasons. 1) After loading the software, I was unable to use Print Artist. It acted like the HP software planted a virus into the Print Artist software and it would get an exception error every time I tried to print. This problem has not been resolved and I am forced to buy new software.
