What HP doesn't tell you...

Brett S., Newegg
14 August 2008
  • Summary: Newegg is the best!!! Great inventory, selection, prices and fast Fast FAST shipping.
  • Pros: The printer does well, when it prints at all.
  • Cons: This and other D42xx Deskjet printers will not work in a shared configuration (in a USB hub or switch). This printer will only work when conected directly to a PC. This would have been nice to know before buying it, because I need a shared printer. The cheaper D2460 works just fine shared using t...

Great Printer

Matthew J., Newegg
29 July 2008
  • Summary: I havent tested out its lifespan on ink like others have said but i am a student and maybe a laser printer would have sufficed better for the long haul. but overall this isn't a bad printer and it is quite nice. HP did a great job in designing it.
  • Pros: Prints great quality pages for an inkjet printer. also spits them out at a decent speed. Does everything it should do. when i click print, it prints :).
  • Cons: Nothing really.

good printer...nice price

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 June 2008
  • Summary: Was looking for an affordable printer that could print nice color prints. This printer did not disappoint! I just upgraded to a hp pentium 4 laptop and wanted to stick with hp in the ways of peripherals and found this one selling for $75.00 or so. Set up fast and is very user friendly.

Ink Issues

P. Verzella, Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: I've had this printer for about 2 years now, maybe 3, and at first it was a dream. Very affordable (I paid about $70 for mine), the ink was reasonably priced (for ink) and it printed beautifully. Now i'm having issues with the ink.

Out of Paper error, takes an hour to print

Heather, Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: My sweet boyfriend bought me this printer as a gift (I'm a writer). But unfortunately, it hasn't worked since coming out of the box. Every other page it gives me an "out of paper" error or "paper jam" message, even though there is obviously paper loaded. It has been nothing but hassles.

less expensive and easy.

B. ulrich, Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: I'm a college student and this is a great printer for me. Obviously, this isn't a printer you're going to want for printing photographs, but for everything else, the prints look great, and come out fairly quickly.

Use Plain Paper ONLY

Paula A. Deroo, Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: This product is the WORST at printing on anything but plain paper. Forget card stock and labels -- it won't feed the sheet(s) right and it'll start printing above the form! I've wasted I don't know how many sheets of business card stock and label stock on this printer.

Not what I expected from HP

Gary W. Williams, Amazon
22 June 2008
  • Summary: Trouble right out of the box. At the end of the software installation procedure, I got a warning window that the HP website I was attempting to link to is not valid. I was unable to finish loading the driver and register the product.

Highly unreliable

Amazon Customer, Amazon
21 June 2008
  • Summary: Works wonderfully when it works: fast and crisp printing. Giving it two stars for the times the printer worked, HP's stellar cartridge delivery service, and decent looks. But constant paper jams guarantee make it unusual that I get anything printed in less than two tries.
