Summary: I purchased this printer to replace my old HP wide format printer when I upgraded to a new computer. I use it for printing AutoCAD drawings, and nothing else. The printer works fine as long as the cartridges are still usable. The problem is that I print rarely, never use up the ink in the cartridges, and have to buy a new set of cartridges every time I need to use the printer. They are too expensive for this kind of use. I am looking for another solution.
Summary: This is a very unreliable printer. I have owned HP Wide Format printers for years, and they really have messed this one up! Reliability issues: 1. Will randomly stop feeding ink to paper. You then have to jump through lots of weird hoops to get the printer to use the ink it has. 2. Will randomly break fonts. Occasionally the printer will "forget" certain fonts and make up jibberish as a placeholder. 3.
HP Officejet 7000- What have they done to this printer!

Summary: I've been a loyal HP printer user for years - this was my second HP7000 to replace the first which stopped printing after 4 + years of heavy use. Loved the wide format feature. This new printer refused to print anything with black ink right out of the box - even after aligning, cleaning the printhead, installing a brand new cartridge. Software was amazingly difficult to install on Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit and 64 bit machines. Goodby HP.
Summary: I have owned many printers and all of them HP. However, after this experience, I will never buy an HP product again - I have had it for two years and the cartridge cable broke. This is after a low printing volume averaging 200 pieces per month - I figure that, in all, I printed 4800 letter size pieces. Yet HP claims you can get 7000 per month - at that rate I should have been able to get 168,000 in a 2 year period.
Summary: Truthfully, in 1983 I had a dot matrix printer that functioned better than this turd. A monkey with a crayon would be a better printer. Let us explore the many reasons why: 1) The paper will not spool though the printer. I end up having to manually push the sheet of paper to get it to start spooling. More often than not, I will get the "printer out of paper" message, even when the printer is full of paper.
Summary: On my desk are two HP printers . . . and as I think about it, I have one in the studio, and I just threw one out a month or so ago. This 7000 has cost me time, money, ink, and all I got were very few large color prints. less than twenty. I've seen the word junk to describe it and as I look around I realize that my Printer, scanner, copier is only capable of greyscale copies and prints. And now the 7000809a is only capable of large greyscale prints and 8x11s.
Summary: Do not buy this piece of junk. The drivers will work for a time but they always crash without fail. Then when trying to uninstall to start over they will continually freeze/crash your PC. If you do happen to get it working be warned that it randomly changes the margins without any change to the print setup. So one printing will chop off one side (oh let me fix that and print it again) oh now its chopping something else off.... Don't waste your time here.
Summary: i bought this printer from a local store and it's a disaster it doesn't print always shaws an error "wrong paper's size" on each task takes like 5 trials with fixing setting to print 1 page or 2 the software has so many errors i wont even recommend this for an enemy
