Awful piece of junk!

Lolly Jean, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • 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!

Disappointed and Disgusted

T. Mcphail, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • 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.

Terrible printer

David W. Richter, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • 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.

Worthy of the JunkYard - NO STARS

Noticat, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • 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.

Where's the Software?

Canongate, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • 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.

The 5940 is JUNK

S. L. Ross, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • 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.
