Summary: I received this printer used from my mom because she got fed up with the paper jams and feed problems that plagued it. The printer is in fantastic condition and prints pictures and text clearly and fast, that is when it is not jamming up with paper.

Summary: The DeskJet 5940 has been sitting in my home office next to my computer for several years now. It has never needed repair and it gets decent "mileage" from the cartridges.

Summary: This is a great printer that is well priced. Quick and nice quality printing for a small printer like this. This printer is a great one for limited space or on the go needs, and even for buissness. Great color, great quality, quiet, and sleek design make this one of my favorite deskjets.
Summary: Have owned this printer since April 2006. We have only had one problem with it, and that was when there was a problem with the printer driver. Reinstalled the software that one time, and no more problems. It prints quickly, quietly, and color is good.
Amazingly good for the money, and tames OS X Tiger.

Summary: I had an older model HP Deskjet that I haven't used in a few years, I needed to print out some homework and found that I had no ink left. I went to the store to price the ink and they were out, but I figured why buy $30 ink for a slow, old printer when I could probably spend $50 bucks more and get a...

Excerpt: I'll be honest here... I got this printer at a slight discount when I purchased my MacBook direct from the Apple store, but I was so surprised with the quality, performance and durability of the photo printer that I would have quite happily have bought this at full price.
Pros: Excellent quality prints, pictbridge support, great OS driver support
Cons: Fairly slow printing for photos, driver installer is a little annoying
