Where's the Software?

Canongate, Amazon
16 January 2013
  • 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.

Partially broke first month i bought it...

LygerTail, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • 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. - the plastic paper holder broke off rather easily, so ive had to place a piece of cardboard under the printer to hold the paper to feed. - exp. freq. printer jams + bad prints.

Awful piece of junk!

Lolly Jean "lollyjean", Amazon
7 August 2008
  • 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
15 November 2007
  • 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. Took 15 minutes just to convey my name and number. Finally I was told there was no option other than upgrade to a newer printer for a cost.

Worthy of the JunkYard - NO STARS

Noticat, Amazon
14 June 2007
  • 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. Unfortunately, Carly Fiorina ruined what used to be a good company (HP) by cheapening their products to the extent they are purely throw-aways that stop working the minute the warranty expires.

The 5940 is JUNK

S. L. Ross, Amazon
13 May 2007
  • 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. Stay away from the Deskjet 5940.
