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.
Excerpt: This printer, was very easy to set up, however it also very easily un-sets itself up. I thought that there was a problem with my computer, so I went out and bought a new computer, nope, same problem, it also goes through ink like its water, which isn't fun since the ink is $30 a color. If you don't buy the xl cartridges your ink is half gone by the time you are done printing your test page. I would not recommend this printer to a friend or an enemy.
Excerpt: Wireless was easy to set up and works well. Black and white normal page printing is fine. Photos, not so much. First photo print job has horozontal lines running across it. Any trouble shooting has to be done on line and not easy to find remity. I bought this to replace my old Canon iP 4500 (which was cheaper) because it finally after 6 years of constant use began to have vertical lines on photos like the HP has right out of the box. Would I recomend this..
Excerpt: See above. Cost me $60 to have a tech come in to set it up correctly. I had to replace a 5440 due to carriage failure after 6 years but it was a wonderful, reliable, easy to operate machine. Unfortunately no one makes reliable, uncomplicated printers anymore.
Summary: A very serviceable color inkjet printer. My only gripe-- what passes for a manual is so minimal that it doesn't tell you how to get spent ink cartridges out of the printer-- they are firmly locked in place. To discover this information, you need to download a 6.8 MB PDF from the HP web site.
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: This printer is noisy and seems to go through ink at a very fast rate. But, my real problem is that I tried to print out a picture using photo paper and kept getting the out of paper message. Yet, when I tried printing on regular paper, it worked fine. I had printed out pictures previously with no problem. The printer is less than 1.5 years old and is used sparingly at my house. So, durability would seem to be an issue.
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.
