Summary: My wife and I wanted a wireless printer that would be simple, efficient and easy to set up and use. Unfortunately, this printer was not that. After several rounds of trying to get it connected via our wireless network, we finally got it hooked up, only to see it drop on and off the network for no rhyme or reason. If you we could get something to print, it used an extraordinary amount of ink from small cartridges that are expensive to replace.
Summary: I wish I could say more about this printer, but really it's an adequate printer if you don't plan to print much. I only use it once a week at most, but should I really be getting ready to buy ink already? Pretty easy to set up and the app for my phone is helpful. I wish the app would provide a select area to print function as I don't need all the ads when I print from my phone (website).
Summary: Who designs something that if one of your color ink cartridges runs out it makes the printer useless, even to print black and white. Makes no sense and I gaurantee will alaways happen at the worst time. I use mine to print bw95% of the time and still burned thru 2 color cartridges in 3 months. And once one runs out the printer is useless. Last time for hp.
Summary: Tempermental and too complicated. Diagnostics are difficult when printing fails, and hangups require time consuming resets involving system preferences. It is impossible to simply turn this thing off when it it decides it's not finished with your hung print job.
Summary: I was looking for a basic inkjet printer, low profile to fit on a shelf. The 6100 eprinter met the criteria. Had two of this model that quickly developed problems with paper pick up. Printer makes a lot of noise. Print head assembly is quite active before and after the print process. Can hear printer squirting a lot of ink, where is the ink going? Paper pick up problem required firmware upgrade. Would not buy this model again or recommend this printer.
Summary: After having printed 25 pages (actual page count in printer status page), the color cartridges are nearly empty. It sits around needlessly cleaning the print head, well needlessly unless you want me to buy more ink that is... Anyways, the $$$/page for this printer thus far is positively ridiculous.
Summary: I've been printing shipping labels with this printer almost every day for over six months. Based on that experience, I would dissuade anyone who wants to use this printer for a similar purpose from buying it. This printer does a poor job of printing shipping labels for two main reasons. The first problem is poor paper tray/loading performance. To print a shipping label, I'll insert one sheet of label paper into the top of the print tray.
Summary: I know that I am getting old because I remember when HP printers set the benchmark for quality inkjets. This printer, while good, is not versatile and the support for it is pretty underwhelming. The 6100e ("e" is for wireless) office jet is one of the dwindling number of basic printers from HP as they migrate from "printers" to "all in ones" and lasers that also include scanning and faxing to the routine.
