Works great unless you want to print things or, you know, actually use it

Summary: This is possibly the worst printer in human history. It throws more tantrums than a toddler. I'm pretty sure they designed it specifically just to mess with you. It's really big on making about 20 minutes of noise before actually printing anything, and sometimes it makes noise just for the hell of...
Summary: Bought this printer on Amazon 3 years ago and it has been problematic since. I connected it to my linksys router to use as a network printer and had decent performance for the first year of very low usage. As time has passed, I am having terrible problem getting anything to print.
Summary: This printer is a masterpiece of failure. It literally takes 20 minutes to calibrate itself (even says so in the manual). When you print it'll sit there and do nothing but make noise for a few minutes, then finally print.
Summary: I have never in my whole life used a more worthless piece of crap. Luckily, my office paid for it and not me. Good luck getting HP's own ink cartridges to work. Oh, and I hope you love the sound of constant buzzing, bucking, cranking, whizzing, whirring, clicking AND NO PRINTING!!!
Summary: Easily the worst printer I've ever had. No matter how many times I re-install the driver (even after new Operating System changes), this printer still falls flat on it's face. It requires 10 minutes of prep time each time I ask it to print a page of text.
Summary: Be forewarned. This printer comes with four different ink cartridges- blue, red, yellow, and black. Any time ANY of the four runs out of ink, you can't print anything, even if you run out of one of the colors and just want to print black and white.
Summary: Now, I purchased this printer in October of 2011 and needed it for school use. I print roughly 20-25 pages a week, primarily black and almost always use the duplex function. The problems started a week after New Years. I had to print a 10-page essay, this time single-sided, for one of my classes.
Summary: I've always owned HP printers and have been very satisfied with them. This printer however is probably the biggest waste of money I've ever experienced since I've been buying computer equipment and that was Win 3.11/DOS days.
Pros: Wireless worked great with my Linksys E3000, but they were in the same room. Duplex printing worked great also. The Linux drivers also worked well.
Cons: The printer lasted one set of color ink cartages and 1.5 black. Developed print head problems shortly after color ink cartage change and new print heads didn't fix the problem. I don't print a lot so the printer died about a month after the warranty expired.
Summary: Very disappointed by the inconsistent ability to print. Since mine is way out of warranty I'm going to take a hammer to it office space style soon.
Pros: I've owned the printer for over a year now and it's been nothing but trouble due to frequent problems when it refuses to print. When it works, the quality (esp of color) prints is amazing.
Cons: Frequent phantom paper jam indications. If you don't print a lot, the ink cartridges will dry up, they're very expensive to replace. Almost every time I have to fight it to print, if I print multiple jobs within close proximity it works, but then if you go for a few weeks without printing it will...
