Summary: Do you only print spasmodically? Are you a tad short of desk depth space? Want something simple to set up/install? Looking to save a little cash? Then here is your printer. Light, not too bulky with easily changeable ink cartridges this thing was so simple even a technology luddite such as myself got it up and running with no dramas and it's lasted well over twelve months now without a hitch. I don't need a printer that can print 500 pages of a thesis.
Compact and Quality Printer, but Beware of Cable Requirement!

Summary: Quality: Great Value: Good My husband and I wanted a compact printer that had basic document printing with no frills. This had great reviews so I purchased it and received it within a week. Easy setup - literally took me about 20 minutes. Unfortunately, it required a USB to PC to cable that was not included. I must've missed that in the other reviews? So I made the extra trip to Target and the cables ran from $13-15 depending on length.
Summary: This printer works fast with no frills and works great for the price. It's on the smaller side so it fits even on a cluttered desk and doesn't have that bulky top feeding feature. It's simple and quick to set up. My only complaint would be that new ink is a little on the expensive side (about $35 for a double color and black ink pack).
Summary: The installation instructions as written caused my computer to lock up twice, when I used the second method suggested, the installation went without a hitch. The printer works well but HP installed a bit of software that covers the printer as well as a HP scanner that I also own and I had to uninstall a portion of this unwanted intrusion for it was interfering with the performance of my computer.
Summary: The only issue I have with this printer is that it didn't come in black (the white doesn't look as good in my office) and that's not a huge deal considering what it does for the price. The print quality is good enough for office use and the two cartridge system is a plus since I mostly print text in black ink - less waste of ink when I can replace one or the other. It's not as fast as other printers, but for the price I can't complain!
Summary: this is a basic color printer. it is fast and holds a good stack of papers in the 'in' tray. I had no issues installing it, nor did I experience any problems with my norton as other reviewers have. for $50 bucks, it's a great printer for everyday needs. It is also one of the smaller on the market for that price, which it the best feature in my opinion.
Summary: This is a good little printer for the money. It works well and it prints fast. Real fast. The print quality is good and so is the color. Quiet it is not, but ear plugs are cheap. However, the tiny little ink cartridges are not cheap. They will cost you as much as you paid for the printer. Well almost. Larger capacity cartridges are available but I am afraid to price them. If you don't do alot of printing and you have a middle class income its a great little printer.
Summary: I am pleased with my purchase of this product but there were problems. One problem is that one cable needed to get this product to work was not included. It is the cable that would connect the printer to the computer. That cable could be significantly expensive, depending on what store you buy it from. Another problem is that Hewlett-Packard, on its web site, promised telephone support, e-mail support, and online tech support for this product.
