can't recommend this printer

El Guajiro, Amazon
30 September 2009
  • Summary: I haven't written many bad reviews on amazon because I usually research products well and rarely have problems with what I buy. This printer was, sadly, my first and last HP product. I bought it just about three years ago online and am now about to put it up on craigslist for free.

Seriously deficient

Edward A. Fagen "music lover", Amazon

  • Summary: This printer is not merely user-indifferent; it is user-hostile. The black-and-white print quality is very good, but it eats its own weight in expensive consumables several times a year. The icons on the LED panel are largely incomprehensible.

  • Summary: Ink cartridges are smaller than the older HP cartridges. Not sure if this changes the ink lifetime or not...
  • Pros: Fast, high quality inkjet. So Far the printer is flawless. HP makes the best injets around.
  • Cons: Not the most sylish looking printer around..

Very fast and nice, but...

  • Pros: This printer prints really fast and the pictures and/or text look very clear and nice.
  • Cons: It doesn't come with a REQUIRED USB cable. It even says in the manual to purchase one yourself. It should really say so when you're buying it so you can get that at the same time... In fact, I'm pretty sure it says it comes with them on the NewEgg product list, but it doesn't.

Reliable, excellent product

Roberto J Porta "Roberto", Amazon

  • Summary: In this world of many choices, it's a relief to know that there are brands which continue, again and again, to keep up with the quality they started with. HP is one of those brands. My 6540 is as good as my former 5150 printer, only faster and simpler to use. Thanks HP for a job well done.

User Review

20 July 2006
  • Summary: Newegg shipping and price were great. I ordered online Sunday evening and it wa delivered Wednesday afternoon. Fine Service
  • Pros: Solidly Built. Easy to load print cartridges.
  • Cons: Printing #10 Envelopes from Microsoft Word causes an error condition. They have a "workaround" on their web page, but I'm really disappointed that a product from HP and a product from Microsoft can't work together to print an envelope. Issue When printing #10 envelopes from the Envelope Tool in M...

Paper Jams

Anonymous, Newegg
18 July 2006
  • Summary: I had great luck with my old hp and thought I'd stay with what worked. Very surprised and disappointed.
  • Pros: If it weren't for the constant paper jams, it would be a great printer.
  • Cons: PAPER JAMS!! Incredible how many I get. One time it actually posted a paper jam message when there was NO paper in it. When it did work, it worked great.
