Bad luck with used printer

jacquescotland, Ebay
28 April 2014
  • Summary: My son finally got it set up for me and it doesn't work. It runs like it is printing but nothing shows up on the page. Well, it was used. And I didn't get it set up within the time limit for returning it...so, my loss. Be careful buying used printers.

this was a mistake

  • Summary: Not happy with my shopping experience with Quality Printers. This was bought in error. When I noticed that this was bought, I tried to cancel the order, but it was too late (already shipped). I called quality printers, and explained this. The printer is still in it's original shipping box, was never opened, and they are charging a $25 restocking fee. On top of that, I pay shipping to ship it back.

hp deskjet 5850 standard InkJet Printer

kkchopra, Ebay
6 October 2010
  • Summary: I like the wireless feature, small size cartridges. it is a separate printer (no fax or scanner). It has an inexpensive duplex unit, for double sided printing. I do not believe other brands of inkjet printers have duplex units. So far I have 2 dead ones and 2 working. I like them because they are not heavy like color laser. Color laser printer cartridges cost more than printer itself. CONS: HP claims 5850 printer can print 5000 pages a month.

Good overall printer for home use

thethriftyones, Ebay
1 September 2009
  • Summary: The HP is relatively a fast printer in black mode, printing slower when color is required. I have no jams, even when the paper is wrinkled on the edges, and have taken the same ten pages of wrinkled paper, turned it around to reprint the back with no problem either. I normally don't use refilled cartridges, preferring to use the company brand but for economy tried one this time with no problems or print degradation.

Hewlett Packard Deskjet 5850 InkJet Printer

clyde.231, Ebay
9 May 2008
  • Summary: This printer doesn't take up much room, prints fairly quickly and does a fine job. The ink is very reasonable to buy, also. I like the display, letting you know how much ink it has left, like the more expensive models.

Worst HP printer I've ever owned

Flash Sheridan, Amazon
23 March 2008
  • Summary: I've been buying HP printers for nearly twenty years, and this is the worst I've ever owned. (It's from the Carly Fiorina era, and it shows.) The error messages never seem to have been tested; I don't think I ever saw an "Out of Paper" message (crucial for a networked printer), though I don't claim to be able predict how it would react when it ran out of paper.
