Summary: I had this same printer for five years and it never let me down until when moving i dropped it and broke it. It prints at a good speed and the Cartriges are not the expensive and last quite a long time before running out of toner.
Summary: Looking back on the reviews before writing this makes me laugh. Printers don't normally come with USB cords anymore regardless of the manufacturer. This is a very decent model that works perfectly and surprisingly clear output compared with the simple navigations.
Summary: I've been using this printer for several years. I bought it because it was the cheapest one at the store (around $30), and I just needed something to print text. I can say with confidence, that it prints text. I have also had no technical problems with it at all, as it is very simple.
Summary: It's just wonderful spending your day shopping, thinking you have everything. You get home all excited to install your new printer.. only to find there is no black cartridge or USB cord. Also the ink runs out very quickly, I think I have only printed a maximum of 30 pages before it ran out.
Summary: The box clearly says it includes a black ink cartridge... beware, HP must be broke, they decided to NOT include a black in the packaging. Nothing like buying a new product to HP, thinking you have all you need, and having to spend another $15 to buy ink. DO NOT BUY THIS.
Summary: The lack of a USB cable didn't bother me, I still had my old one from my last printer. I was surprised to find no black ink cartridge, but what bothers me the most is the lack of quality in the prints and design.
Excerpt: This is the printer in my office, and I just hate it. I’ve been asking my boss for a new one. One that doesn’t consume tons of ink and has a tray for printed pages. So it’s compact, and it has a sleek design, but my work keeps falling …
Summary: I bought one of these last Spring 2007 after returning back from Ireland and I have just smashed the thing on the floor after it continuously kept rolling the paper through halfway and getting stuck and not printing and then....ugghh! Don't buy it.
