Summary: I have used the HP ink (usually the extended cartridges) without issue and I've used aftermarketed ones that are about 60% the cost of the HP ones with no issue except that the printer reports them being dry.
Pros: I've had this printer for going on four years and it is still going strongly! Love it!
Summary: I'm sorry I waited so long to buy this printer. For the amount I've spent on ink on my old printer, I could have bought three of these! The ink that came with this printer lasted surprisingly long: black 417 pgs; yellow 281 pgs; magenta 293 pgs; cyan 296 pgs.
Pros: -ethernet connectivity means easy sharing for all computers in the house -separate ink cartridges means your ink costs are spread out over a longer timeframe -high yield ink cartridges means you pay less per page and don't have to replace as often -more economical on ink usage than my previous in...
Cons: -web-based configuration page is very sparse in options compared to more expensive laser printers.
Summary: It's probably just me, but it seems to use RED ink up sooner, but that of course, is what is in the color document being printed.
Pros: fast, clean, jam-free, price-point. I like how the ink doesn't dry in the cartridge head like prior inkjets did. I may not use the printer for 6-7 weeks and yet, the first page ALWAYS is perfect.
If you print a lot, don't even give it a second though

Summary: Overall, great quality printer. Print quality isn't super stunning, but definitely good enough to get the job done. Cheap and fast prints are what I bout this for and it has PERFECTLY served this purpose. If this is the kind of printer you are looking for, this here is your man.
Pros: When I first got the printer, I had it setup in 20 minutes flat, even for wireless access. I have three different computers in the house and they all share it just fine. As far as ink prices, it is super cheap (especially if you order XL cartridges and order from HP direct, who gives you rewards)...
Cons: Only things I can even think to complain about are these two: noise and print quality Realize this: This is not a photosmart printer. While if you put it on best it will print very pretty pictures, this printer is mainly geared for bulk quantity text with some graphics. If you are really picky ab...
Summary: We have owned this model for almost 2 years now. Bought it at a national office supplies store for twice Newegg's sale price. Works great over a home wireless network. It can go through ink quickly, and I wonder how long the separate print head will last.
Pros: Wireless network printer, standby mode is nice, easy to install over a home network, duplex is nice but slow.
Summary: Since I was using a PC with Win7Pro I had to download the Win7 installation SW from HP's web site -- very easy to do -- Like I said in the Pros -- when the the installation routine asked me I elected to hardwire it into my home network a little later it told me to hook it in -- I plugged into my...
Pros: Installation was simple and straight forward -- Just follow the directions and it worked. I installed this and selected the wired network option -- plugged it into my network when the installation SW told me. All my PC's see it on my Home Network -- wired and wireless.
Summary: Right now, I'm going to buy a third unit to be used in the classroom. The first two had good prices, on sale, from Newegg that beat all the others.
Pros: Have purchased 2 from Newegg. One with automatic duplexing and one without. Both work very well especially when you replace the ink cartridges the XL versions. One is at home, was used in the classroom for 6 months. My wife liked it so well that she brought it home for the summer and kept it here...
Cons: NO real cons. If you pay attention to what others have writtten as technical type support, get the drivers from HP's web site and forget the drivers disk that comes with it. For networking, set a fixerd I.P address before you even start. Do this even with wireless. Once you set up sharing, other ...
