Summary: Received the printer quickly after it had been shipped. Easily assembled printer without reading any instructions. Turned it on and connected to usb and later wirelessly through the Printer itself and not the software that I downloaded from HP.com. As soon as it connected I upgraded the firmware using a USB Flash with the new firmware. Everything went smoothly without any problems.
Summary: I had tried other wireless printers to use with my phone, Kindle and Chromebook, but they just wouldn't work reliably. This one works. There is a remote control app for this printer for Android phones that a supports printing and scanning. They also set up an email for every printer they sell. You send an email to the printer and it prints. It works for any device that can send an email.
Summary: I chose this printer because it's designed to save ink (separate cartridges for each color) and to save paper (duplex printing). Ironically, it works well for me with one highly annoying exception. Sporadically, without any command to do so, it prints out several pages of the demo sheet or the status report or the network configuration pages. No devices besides my router are connected when this happens, so I'm suspecting it's getting ping-ed by my Hughes modem.
Summary: I bought this specifically for it's friendliness with open source, and I'm very glad I did. I'm using this with Ubuntu, and it works great. For me, it is primarily a scanner, and the ability to scan double sided documents with the auto-document feeder is fantastic. If you also intend to use it with Linux, just be sure to grab the latest version of hlip from their website, as the version in the (14.04) repositories are a little out of date.
Summary: PROS: -High yield cartridges -Print from and scan to USB -ePrint remote printing CONS: -Awkward cartridge fit -HP ePrint slow to recognise printer -No paper size detection This machine is definitely built for business and a lot of its facilities will fit well with small offices of all kinds.
Good printer, first update the firmware if you have any problems connecting
28 March 2015
Summary: The out of the box experience was not great for me. I have a netgear wireless router and I could not get the printer to attach to the wireless network. I have a variety of wireless devices that had all attached with no problems to the netgear. Eventually I attached the printer to the network wired and updated its firmware. (There was an update in March 2015). After the update, the printer successfully connected to the netgear wirelessly.
Summary: Seriously welcome to the only printer I paid a large sum for that can't even print a page range of 8 without freaking out and stop printing on page 4. This has cost me enough time and headache I need to save others from making the same mistake.
Summary: Disappointing. With every update or new generation, HP removes features, hardware and/or software, from its printers... First Impressions March 2015 (Updates to follow): CONS No printed Users Manual. Printed Setup Guide is almost useless. It directs you to touchscreen. Instructions are in the system...you read it off the touchscreen The power cord of the 8620 is short when compared to HP Photosmart c309 and HP 6300.
