don't buy for wireless mac printing

Tim Groves, Amazon
7 April 2010
  • Summary: I have been unable - with HP support or techie friends - to set this printer up for wireless printing with my mac book. Hooked up the the USB port it prints adequately for an inkjet (its not a photo printer, but doesn't really claim to be).

deserves no stars

H.M., Amazon
18 May 2009
  • Summary: I hate this printer. It sucks in five pages at a time and then complains of a paper jam. I can't print two sided because of this (I print half the number of pages and then put those pages back in to get printed on the back, but each page has to go in consecutively so that it can be read in order).

  • Summary: It is easy to set up using wireless. WEP encryption was fine but I had some issues using WPA... Overall, it prints great prints at a nice speed.

Worst Printer EVER

Vera Lynn, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought this printer because of the reviews indicating it works with Vista. What a joke! I am an IT professional by trade and this printer will NOT work with Vista if the printer is not directly connected to it. My main computer is running XP. The printer is connected directly to it and shared.

Works great! Network setup is a bit difficult and photopaper printing can be a bit troublesome if you don't have the right ink

Thepparit R., Newegg
15 May 2009
  • Summary: Although not a perfect printer, it was a great purchase. Some flaws here and there, but if your primary printing reason is documents, then this is a great buy for you. Even if it's not for a small office :) Also, I'm still not too sure about the ink set between photo and document.
  • Pros: It's very fast and easy to setup through Vista. I was reading through the manual and started to setup the printer. By the third or fourth step that it required me to plug it in to the computer, Vista just took it over and installed drivers and everything. Granted I had to update the new driver an...
  • Cons: - Network setup is a bit more tedious, but it's not impossible - There are 2 sets of inks to use. One for documents and another for photos. I tried printing with the "regular" ink to print an image on a photopaper. Oh boy, the picture was smudgy by ink and would not even dry up by the end of the ...

Brittle Plastic

Kevin, Amazon
14 May 2009
  • Summary: I'm working on a 6988 right now where the printer believes the lid is open. Pull the right side cover and found the brittle plastic lever that gets moved when closing the lid has broken. So the right side cover must be left off and the switch manually moved when needed.

same cartridge issues as others

Kelly M., Amazon
12 May 2009
  • Summary: I've had the same problems many of the others have complained of - too many pages at a time, slow, etc. I've now started having the problem with the black ink cartridge cradle. The other day I got an error that my cartridge isn't compatible (it's HP brand #96 and it had been in there for weeks,...
