Shame about HP support

A C, Amazon
23 October 2010
  • Summary: I have had had this printer for a long time now and it is brilliant. But I have just replaced my PC and HP in their wisdom have decided not to support this printer on Windows 7. You can make it work by using the Vista driver or the driver for the HP 1220c but not all functions are available.

Not recommended

  • Summary: Printing quality is not too bad, but it is difficult to find paper that doesnot jam, even with standard size paper. Printing A3 is even more difficult and with labels it is almost possible to get a good result.

  • Excerpt: I have been using Hp deskjet 1280 for around more than a year now almost {i think}. The only time when my product wasn't working was during the service time of the printer, that too lasted only for an hour. Believe me, the printer is very very versatile.

Reliable but not record breaking

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 August 2007
  • Summary: As a bog standard, A3 printer this unit has been fine, the quality is great for what I use it for, simple posters and signage, I would not recommend it for someone looking for a device to support high throughput or usage, as others have commented the paper feed can be a little flakey.

  • Summary: [...] I have no complaints with the printer or seting it up - everything was what I would expect of an HP machine. I only use it for A3 prints of work drawings and although it is rather steady, it does save me a trip to the local print shop.
