Summary: Possibly the Staples. They sent it back to HP to facilitate a warranty repair. HP sent it back saying it was fixed. It still did not work and the technicians at HP removed the back (rollers) and returned the printer to me without the back! When the printer powered on it went into it's start up mode where the ink carriage went back and forth and would get stuck in this mode and never print a page. offered me a whole new one (same model) for free.
Summary: I would love to use 4-letter words to express my feeling for this printer. It is a dreadful waste of ink and money. Read other reviews for a more eloquent description of such. I will take great pleasure in using this printer for target practice. Run far, far away from this printer!!
Summary: This HP 6100 printer started life out OK. Always was kind of slow and made a lot of jerks and noises, but printed adequately enough. One quirk was it would only print labels or thicker paper one page at a time, but I could live with that. After about a year it decided to go crazy and would not quit making noise and shifting around. The only way I could shut it off was to unplug it. I don't know what I did to get it to work again - I wish I had that time back!

Summary: Its a total crapshoot everytime you want to print with this thing. Possible outcomes include 10 minutes of scene from roadhouse being acted out inside the printer as it bangs and whirs back and forth before telling you that it wont print your black and white boarding pass because there is not enough yellow ink. Sometimes it will let you know through windows 8 that your doc didnt print. Other times your doc goes off into never never land.
Summary: It was great for the first 3 months. The ink ran out quickly, but I bit the bullet and replaced the cartridges with the XL versions. Alas, when the next color ran out, the entire printer stopped working. I checked for help all over the internet. HP troubleshoot stated that calibration does not work effectively if all cartridges are not working. Therefore, it will not even do black and white copies until you get the new color.
Summary: This printer does print ok but the ink is devided into 4 cartidges. The black is a big one but they it has a small red one, small blue one, and small yellow one so if one of the small ones runs out none of the ink will work will work, you can't even set it to greyscale. Costs a lot of money to keep ink for it. I finnally just through it out so I could get my lexmark Z705 back.
Summary: Absolutely terrible cheap Printer... I am a computer technician; Just to install the printer for the first time its literally Takes the printer 15 to 20 minutes prepping in the ink cartridges..... plus the time to install the software. This is the slowest hp printer ive worked with.
Summary: I have been using computers/printers since the days of DOS and floppy disks. I found Office Jet 6100 Printer totally unusable and too simpleIt prints and that is all. I have never before seen a printer That won't at least copy. I realize that is my fault for not interpreting the specks blurb carefully enough. Fortunately I hve been able to return it toward a different model.
