ePrint doesn't work, HP won't help.

Scott A Wojtowicz, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: The only reason this was purchased was the ability to print via email. However, this printer has a "sleep" function that cannot be turned off. It has 5 setting from "1 minute" to "1 hour". Once the printer goes to sleep, and emailed print job does not ever print, it just disappears into the ether.

Not good for Mac

The Bonum is God, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: On paper this seems to be a good printer. But in reality, it can have annoying failures. Pros: Green (will shut down promptly when not use), Fast printing, duplex, networking cons: Terrible Mac support (will not print duplex from Word, some internet pages will not print).

NOT for Graphic Design

xfoth, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I'm a Graphic Design student and my school recently started charging for our black and white prints, so I quickly sought out an affordable laser printer for home. The reviews claim that this printer prints out crisp clean text, but after trying all different configurations...I have yet to see this.

Problem with duplex printing

Genealogist, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: Duplex printing does not work properly. Second page prints upside down. I went online and found that others were having the same problem. Advice given is complicated and does not seem to solve the problem. If you want duplex printing, don't select this mode.

fair

Muse, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this for the HP name, meaning great engineering and reliability, and so forth. The set-up was amazingly easy. But, one of the features most important to me, duplex printing (prints on both sides of the paper), didn't work after a few days. Every time I try it, the paper jams in the machine.

Great printer crippled by terrible software.

doubled822, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: My organization ordered about 6 of these printers for loan officers. First, let it be known that these are NOT corporate-friendly printers. It was a huge task to get around HP's "dumbed down" driver installation process to get these printers to work with a server.

If trying to print wireless, it is a real pain

Nomas, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: Previously had an hp printer attached to my network via apple airport express. Had no problems with old printer. This printer has some auto off feature that results in not being able to print unless I unplug and replug both the airport express and the printer.

Broke after 15 months

Michael Herzog, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: The printer worked well for the first 15 months then just stopped working. The connections seem to be cycling on and off. Gave it 2 stars since it ran pretty well during the time it worked. Used in an office with moderate printing. Not sure if it is hardware or software.
