Summary: cheap printer , but if you run out of 1 colored cartridge, it won't print at all, even if you want to print black and white. It's a design flaw, that's designed to make you spend more on hp ink cartridges. very, verrrrrry annoying.
Summary: Pros: It will print both sides of a document. Print quality is OK and colors are OK - but not spectacular. Cons: Takes FOREVER to initialize when you turn this thing on, and it takes a long time to actually start printing after you tell it to print a document. This printer constantly makes noises. Out of the blue (when no printing tasks are ongoing) motors just kick in and it just starts making a racket. This printer sucks up ink like crazy.
Summary: So I bought this thing going on the assumption that if I spent a little more on the printer, I could save in the long run on ink and, you know, enjoy a quality printer. Wrong! This thing burns through ink like a '62 Caddie burns gasoline. The worst part is how long it takes to print a document. It literally takes ten minutes for this thing to warm up and ponder its place in the universe before it starts spitting out pages.
Summary: I've been using this printer for about a year, and it would always seem to go dead after it went to sleep. I had to pull the power cord and let it reset (which sometimes took a few minutes) whenever I needed to print something. I was about to throw this thing out before I went online and found a solution. Someone in a forum had the same issue, and they said the fix was to use the CAT5 cable rather than the USB cable.
Summary: I thought I would write this review while I was waiting for this thing to print. Every time I turn it on, it has to take 5 minutes to do some sort of calibration. This also happens nearly every time I try to get it to print something. I'm not sure if it is operator error but I usually can't get the wireless feature to work and I have to bring my computer to the printer. It also seems to like printing out test pages a lot. I've wasted so much paper on these test pages.
Summary: You will spend more time listening to this printer "do it's maintenance thing" and waiting, then you will actually printing with it. It has mucho problems handling anything other than most plain paper substrates. Mine will not print most foil label sheets, displaying a "incorrect paper size" message, even though the size has never been changed from 8 1/2" x 11".
Summary: We had issues setting up our HP Officejet Pro 8000 printer two years ago, but after we got it to work, it was great - fast, and our printing jobs looked very professional - never had any troubloe with it. Then my computer crashed and burned, and I got another one. Well, let's not go into all the problems I've had setting the printer up.
Summary: Nice machine until a paper jam sensor went bad..... stopped it cold. I used it very, very lightly, but after a year a sensor when bad and ... it will cost more to fix than replace. It was rated # 1 by Consumer Reports... but not by me. I am on a Mac, it was very hard to set up for wireless. Had to have a CS engineer hook it up.
Summary: I would tell anyone looking for a printer to steer clear of this one. This is the second HP inject printer that I have had nothing but problems with. It will frequently stop communicating with the PC and takes many unplug-1ait 10sec-plug in-wait 5mins go-arounds. I was appalled to find out that this printer won't print if one of the ink heads is empty.
