Summary: I knew it was used when I ordered it, so I suspected some problems. It took some help to get it going, but it is working fine at this time. The problem was a dried up color cartridge (even though I started with a new one). It would have helped to have an indication as to what to look for; however, I am pleased with it so far.
Summary: Hewlett-Packard's 940C is one step up from the 920C and there is not much difference. It's a good quality all-purpose printer that will print out clear text and pictures (on the correct type of photography paper). Its bare bones for printers. It is not the fastest, but are you really in a big rush? The good features are that it is fairly compact; the dpi is 600, which is the minimum you want and it works fine.
Summary: The initial setup was, as I expected, a pain in the butt. Someone needs to make printers and cameras as user friendly as other peripherals. I couldn't use the USB port because it just didn't work. My printer is hooked up through a serial port. When I first started using it the quality was great. The text and pictures looked very nice and the prints came out pretty fast when I didn't have the quality turned way up.
Summary: I've had the 940c for a couple of years and use it at my work. I print 20 to 30 documents a day, mostly b&w but some color also. Overall this is a good printer and does its job nicely. What this printer lacks in features it makes up for in ease of use and consistency. Rarely have I ever had a paper jam but when I have it's easy to resolve.
Summary: This printer lasted more then 2 years. Perfect prtints, and not a ink hog. But we bought cheaper ink and it caused the ink to drip or drag from the paper to the rollers of the printer. So if you do buy, make sure you only use HP ink. Dont listen to the sales guy at Frys like we did!!!!!
Summary: I have owned this printer for about a year ... purchased it for printing photos and was impressed with the quality. However, like one of the other reviewers, mine jams again & again. It feeds multiple pieces of paper and is just a pain in the ***. At $1/sheet for photo paper, jams are expensive and the ink just pools while it is jammed. It is a mess and a waste of ink and therefore $$$$.
Summary: I bought this printer about 2 years ago. It's a great printer for what I paid, which was not bad at all. One thing I don't like about it, it's that a lot of times it shakes a lot when it's printing and when it finishes a page. Also, if by any chance you cancel a page that's printing, it may be a hassle to print again, as the printer may just print randomly any simbols it wants. I just bought a digital camera and it works great.
Summary: The printer does deliver a nice quality picture and was easy to install. Its major disappointment is the cost of ink cartridges and the rate at which it uses ink. (Even when printing in gray scale). I now know to more thoroughly research the next printer I purchase for its long term efficiency and costs of ink. As far as usage goes the printer has worked well for over a year without any problems or crazy complications.
Summary: I bought this printer about a month ago and was slightly disappointed by its performance. The print quality is great, the photos I printed looked 99% like the 35mm prints that came from the lab, but I made the mistake of using 4x6 photo paper instead of the standard 8 1/2 x 11 sheets. Approximately every-other print came out crooked on the paper, and the printer has an annoying habit of cutting off the last inch of the image because of margin restrictions.
Summary: I got this after my OLD hp printer finally died. The quality is good, but it is extremely slow. Took 2 hours to print a screenshot from Unreal 2 at best quality. Its possibly because I'm using the parallel port, not the USB. As the printer DID NOT come with a USB cable. Also, NEVER USE THE CANCEL BUTTON ON IT!!!! It sends a strange message to the comp. which the computer sends back to the printer and tells it to print from 20-80 pages of JIBBERISH.
