The printer is outdated and doesn't readily work with Windows 8.

Andrew Gaudet, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: This printer does not work with Windows 8, it would have been nice if this was mentioned in the ad since the majority of people who use computers use the most up to date Windows version.

Good Printer, BUT doesn't work with Vista

  • Summary: I loved this printer until I bought a new computer with Vista and it wouldn't recognize the printer. No driver at HP, no solution at this time. So it is disconnected. I am pretty disappointed in HP not having a suitable driver.

  • Summary: I've just bought this printer to replace my old LaserWriter 4/600, which was a cheap and compact laser printer (when Apple had them). I'm moved from Mac to XP and connecting it to a PC is impossible and I had to buy another printer.

WARNING and BEWARE

Telstar, Amazon
6 January 2004
  • Summary: I previously gave this printer 5 stars. However, beware. If you print, say, 50 pages in a row, the printer slows from its rated throughput to only ca. 4 pages per minute. HP tech support confirms this, and indicates that a cheap printer 'without a fan' overheats, and compensates by stopping the...
