"This printer is a nightmare!"

Hollowdead, CNET
17 May 2011
  • Pros: I don't remember any.
  • Cons: This printer stops to print for no reason at all! I used to uninstall and reinstall the driver to make work and this was successful. But now even on uninstalling and reinstalling it does not print. It gives me the error message (roughly)sometimes "The pr

Not suitable for work.

Armando L. Franco Carrillo, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: I have owned this printer for four months. I gave it two stars (don't like it) instead of one (hate it) because if I hated it, I would have dumped it instead of figuring out a way for it to work. When using Vista, I discovered it would not work when used as a shared printer. So I only used it as a direct printer, opening all documents in the computer it is attached to. Not too bad. Then I migrated to Windows 7. And, ... oh, my gosh!

It sucks!!

S. Lu, Amazon
10 May 2010
  • Summary: This is the worst printer I've ever bought. It's completely unreliable. The paper feeder works only some of the time. We've called for technical support, and updated the drivers. Nothing seems to help. Don't buy this model!

"Terrible printer"

serlichman, CNET
12 March 2010
  • Pros: It is cheap. It prints, sometimes. Copy quality good, when you get it. It is fast, when it does happen to print. I can't think of anything else that is positive about this printer.
  • Cons: This printer cannot print more than 20 pages without overheating and stopping. You have to slam down the lid five times. That prompts a test page. Sometimes the printer won't print at all, and it is impossible to cancel print jobs.

Not ready for MAC OS 10.6.2

George Washington "mac win", Amazon
2 January 2010
  • Summary: I have spent many hours on the phone with apple, and HP and still can not get this cheap printer to work. Installing the latest 1.2.0.224 driver the printer was recognized, but print job hangs. HP and apple support so far are unable to explain. Jan. 2, 2010. Next time I will buy the brand in the apple store that works. You just can not trust the HP website. Does not work with OS 10.6.2 ,using airport extreme router.

"Requires constant re-installs"

naisiwel, CNET
17 November 2009
  • Pros: Thankfully ended any thought that I should buy HP products. After this printer never again!
  • Cons: If you try and delete a document that it refuses to print then thats it - the printer ceases to work and the only way back is to totally uninstall and then reinstall. Save yourself time and money and buy a reputable brand.

Mac users, don't buy this printer.

CHAhn, Amazon
26 July 2009
  • Summary: Do yourself a favor and get another printer instead, if you are a mac user. I have a macbook pro and the printer is unusable with it. The main problem, I think, is the driver. It does not print. The computer recognizes the printer, but when sent to the printer queue, it just stops dead and nothing happens. All you get is "stopped" in the queue.

HP LaserJet P1500: 'paper feed problem'

Margie Burns, Amazon
3 March 2009
  • Summary: This HP LaserJet P1500 arrived seemingly intact, w/ cartridge packed inside, but never produced one page. Hardware issue: the printer had a paper feed problem that could not be fixed even w/ phone support from Tech at HP. Telephoning for help involved call being routed around a few times, but the tech eventually reached was very polite and helpful. Hope the replacement printer works.

too stripped down for most uses

M. Lewis, Amazon
22 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this printer recently much to my regret. It does not have the typical "stop print" and "reset" buttons that most HP and Dell printers have...only "on/off." That means you have reboot your whole system when the printer hangs up (which it frequently does). If I run out of paper in the middle of a print job, it often can't tell if I've put paper in, so it stays in suspension. It really, really sucks.
