Summary: From the first day, this printer has jammed. It doesn't matter what paper it's using, it jams. And it's slow. The color ink? I swear there is nothing in the cartridge. Save yourself the time and energy and annoyance factor--buy something--anything--else!
Summary: bought this printer 2 years ago while i was in college. - within first month of owning it a plastic object broke off (the auto detecttion for open cover). so for 2 year ive had an old pair of scissors propped into the place where the plastic broke off just to get the machine to work.
Summary: Bought this printer about a year ago. I have been plagued with paper feed problems from the start. This printer never reliably fed HP paper and recently completely quit feeding paper all together. Called HP customer support only to be helped by a person who spoke very poor english.
Summary: My HP Deskjet 5940 is by for the worst printer I have ever owned. The paper jams constantly. It is impossible to run any job on it without the paper feed jamming at some point. Even using HP's own photo paper doesn't help. When it does print, the quality is very good.
Summary: NO STARS ... Don't waste your money on this. Note the cheap price, you get what you pay for. The paper feeder barely works, most of the time I have to feed it one sheet at a time. I had another HP (very expensive) printer with the same problem. So I guess I am the fool here.
Summary: This is a terrific printer, but HP hasn't updated the software to work with Windows 7. Ink levels and service tool connections that were orginally provided in the original software is inaccessible in newer opterating systems. And HP wonders why their printer business is falling off.
Summary: Misery loves company and by reading the other reviews I can see I have plenty of company here. I bought this printer for my daughter to take to college. After a month it stopped feeding the paper no matter what you tried. Do Not buy this printer! I have other HP printers and they all work great.
