Warning! Do Not Purchase The HP Officejet 6000 Printer

Summary: This miserable and noisy abomination of a printer sucks up ink from HP cartridges and won't accept third-party "compatible" cartridges. The HP cartridges last only a very short time and then its off to Office Depot for another $50 worth of cartridges. I pay more for cartridges for this POS than I do for Internet service, and I really don't print much at all.
Summary: I have had one of these printers for about 2 years, with light to moderate use. I have replaced the cartridges 3 or 4 times. Now, the printhead is clogged, and I have to spend more on replacing it than I spent on the printer to begin with - or get a new printer. And BANG goes the environment! DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER! The design of the print head is such that you can't get at the part that needs cleaning. The only alternative is to replace it.
Summary: I had this printer for about a year and a half, and have hated it for just as long! I bought it to replace a Canon printer that went through ink like candy - but this printer is just as bad. The ink is expensive - of course, to avoid constant "low ink" error messages, you have to buy genuine HP cartridges, which cost twice as much. Even the "high yield" cartridges do not last very long. I have spent hundreds of dollars on ink for this printer.
Summary: THIS PRODUCT SUCKS! HP Officejet 6000 Color Inkjet Printer (CB051A#B1H) THIS PRODUCT SUCKS! STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT! THE REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGES PRINT DULL COLORS!!!!!! I'm pretty pissed off right now! I just spent $40.00 replacing all four cartridges, but the quality of the ink is so obviously lacking, it is insulting and quite pathetic!
Summary: This is the slowest printer I have ever used. I've used HP printers exclusively for the last ten years, and this is by far the worst. It takes about ten minutes to print five pages. It revs and whirrs and buzzes like it's about to print, but you still have to wait about 3-5 more minutes for a page to spit out. I just installed it last week and every time I print, I get so tired of waiting, I feel like I want to hit this one with a hammer!
Summary: Should have read all the reviews!!! Once the "intro" cartridges ranout of ink the trouble started. First of all the printer had a fault with the print head so it needed cleaning and reseating.The replacement remanufactured inks continually came up as "previously used HP ink cartridges", and all the LEDs flashed constantly in unison. As if to tell me the inks were depleted.
Summary: Got this printer, ran setup and installation in about 30 minutes. Tried to test print, only to see a message that the print head is damaged and need to be replaced. I'm not going to spend another $40 to get a new printhead on this new printer. I would not recommend this printer at all.
Cons: I concur with the majority of reviews found here. The printer is slow, noisy and shakes the whole table as it prints. It won't print envelopes from Word 2003 (and yes, I have been through all of HP's suggested troubleshooting).
