Summary: I have had this printer for about 3 years. If I print any large color sheet near the end of the print it discolors about 1/3 of the end of the sheet. Even after replacing the ink cartridges. I have tried many things to mitigate this with no avail. I had them send me a new one and the new printer did the same thing. Very disappointing because I have another HP printer that is a real champ.
Summary: It jams paper a lot. It starts by tearing the right edge of the paper and then jams. Since I did not get an instruction book with my purchase, I have no way of knowing what is the problem. When I try calling HP I am connected with ladies that I think are in Indonesa, which barely speak English. I will never buy another electronic device online.
Summary: This is the second one of these we have bought. For $149 I dont expect it to last for years, but it should last more than six months of moderate use. Prints very nicely but just dont expect it to last too long. Then again, no other wide format printer comes close to this price.
Summary: I purchased this printer (wide format) because I've been doing a lot of photography and thought it would more economic to print my own large photos. Quality of prints is erratic; I have wasted so much photo paper and toner, always selecting the "Best" capability in the hopes that I'll get a decent picture. Toner cost is breaking me. I get about five photos 8 1/2 by 11's before one or more of the cartridges is running low or out altogether.
Summary: I purchase this to be able to make in-house reduced sized architectural prints (half size of 24x36 works well at 12x18), and printing mostly in greyscale. My main complaint with the Officejet 7000 is that the HP designers made the ink cartridges very small for a wide format printer. It's in inexpensive unit, but the replacement cartridges soon add up, so prepare to replace these on a regular basis at $15 to $30 each.
Summary: I bought one in September, by January I had printed a total of 49 pages and had to replace the ink. After 90 prints, I had to replace it again. I am not printing large photos...just some color web pages on occasion. Mine grinds gears and jams when trying to load anything heavy than basic print paper. I contacted HP, they said it was no longer under warranty (1 year), even though I have owned it for only a few months.
Summary: I recently purchased this printer and have had my share of problems already hashed in the review arena. I, too, have been victimized by heavily accented people that I couldn't understand. However, my latest frustration is that it won't print on colored paper. You know, the regular gren, pink or yellow or whatever that you buy at Staples or Office Max. I even clicked on the HP colored paper in the print options - still won't print.
Summary: It's an average printer. Not terrible. Not amazing. BE WARNED: HP bundles it with the ArcSoft PrintCreations crapware. It calls itself "free", but then charges you $2.99 to print a greeting card. Once installed, it is DIFFICULT to remove. My father got tricked by this offer and it took me an hour to extract this junk from his computer. It actively trys to stop you removing it. You've been warned. HP should be embarrassed for including this in the box.
Summary: This is my third wide format printer. Previously owned HPs selling in $250 range. They lasted about 3 years each. This one is of much lower quality. The first one of these Model 7000s I received sounded like it was stripping its gears each time it printed a page. I called Customer Support at HP and was given no help at all. I returned it for another (exchange). This one is even noisier. So much so that others in the office ask what's wrong with your printer?
Summary: I bought this printer for photography quality prints of photos I had taken. The printed photos are extremely muted and fuzzy. My other printer (Canon) that is smaller will print the same photo fine. Also, I replaced the blue cartridge and printed 2 sheets of 12x12 and the blue is already out! Plus the quality is horrible on those two sheets. I have had this for a few months and I can't stand it. Too expensive of ink and it uses too much of it.
