Excerpt: This is my second HP Pro 8100. The first one failed after about 18 months. I purchased extended warranties on both. This is a good printer for my needs of a few sheets per day however I expect it will fail in about 18 months.
Excerpt: I just purchased this HP Pro 1800 printer to replace the same model I purchased 18 months ago. I purchased extended warranty on both printers because they are prone to fail just beyond the HP 1 year warranty.The first one failed due to "print head defective" per the HP diagnostic tests I ran. The first one was good machine up until it started streaking and not printing colors even though I had installed genuine HP cartridges.
Excerpt: I just purchased my second HP Pro 1800 printer. It replaces the first one I purchased about 18 months ago. I purchased an extended warranty with both printers because I have read numerous reviews that say most modern printers fail in a relatively short while (throw away devices). I purchased my first HP printer in 1999 and it lasted until 18 months ago- it was big and heavy and robust. The HP Pro1800 printer works fine and used ink sparingly.
Summary: I got this printer about 3 weeks ago. It arrived on time, thank you Amazon. This is my first HP printer. I have always had Epson. My last one finally conked out after 6.5 years (c88+) and the one before that I had about 10 years. I decided to get something different and an upgrade to wireless and duplex printing. I really contemplated on all in ones but I had thinking..
Summary: I wanted a simple yet quality printer. I don't have a second line for a fax nor need to make photocopies. My ______ printer, with multitasking, was hard to use and always talking to me for no reason. I've always had great luck with HP products and would have bought this model had I seen it in (big box) store.
Summary: I returned this printer after a few days of listening to clanking,clonking and other undesirable noises. prior to delivering an acceptable print. I initially bought it because of the low price and I needed a wireless printer to replace my HP laserjet 1505.This printer was ready for a new drum system after working with no problems for many years.The price of the new drum was about the same as the 8100. I also had problems linking it to my wireless network.
Decent Color InkjetPrinter, but Some Serious Shortcomings

Summary: I have a fairly large number of printers in my office, since I do a variety of specialized printing jobs. Not counting the Xerox and Canon copy center machines (copier/scanner/printer), and not counting the black-and-white and color laserjet printers, I also have a wide format Epson color inkjet printer (my only way to print 11”by 17” paper), a Primera CD/DVD autoprinter, a Brother label printer, a Dymo stamp/postage printer, and finally an Epson color inkjet printer.
Summary: I've figured out their racket by this time after going through various brands and models. This one does the job but the cost of new ink cartridges costs as much as the original with cartridges....
Summary: I love this printer. It is a workhorse. The printer functioned beautifully for a year and a half. Then, the print quality degenerated quickly. The colors would not function. I tried replacing all the inks with new but the color print quality was horrible. Since I had all the inks and until this color print problem I loved the printer, I just bought another one.
Summary: I do lots of specialized envelopes and this printer does not print envelopes correctly. You have to take the paper out, resize the moving panels and then the print on the envelope is incorrect. Would not recommend this printer if you want to print envelopes. What a disappointment!!!
