Summary: Read the reviews below. I'm not sure what happened to HP consumer products. Not only are they now shoddy but HP assumes consumers are suckers: they'll pay anything for ink and accept any bad product. Tom Morris
Pros: Prints quickly and even photos (on normal paper stock) look clear and crisp. Installation under Linux is easy. The first time it is set up, it does take some time (one part takes 12 minutes) but it is all unattended, without constant user input -- at least for a Linux installation.
Summary: While I didn't buy it to do any photo printing, I decided to give it a try to see how it'd do. It beat my expectations. This printer is well worth the money spent for it. Shipping only took two days, Thanks NewEgg.
Pros: I bought this printer to replace a 10 year old HP printer, that had died a slow death. It does exactly what I need it to do, plus.
Summary: Just buying another one for the plant floor. I have been using this printer in an office setting, it is unbelievably fast. I use it to print full color work instructions with pictures and text. It cranks them out in no time flat, and pretty high quality.
Pros: Extremely Fast! Separate ink cartridges. XL capacity cartridges last long time. Large paper tray Very reasonably priced. It is just a printer, not a fax, scanner, coffee machine, etc.
Cons: Huge footprint Slightly noisy One ink cartridge that it shipped with had an air bubble or something, had to run the clean cycle multiple times to get it to work. Wasted lots of ink. Ships with regular capacity cartridges.
Summary: Setting up the printer's uses and various printing functions is a mine field and would drive Carrie Nation to drink. It fights you at every turn. You try to generate a profile for a particular application and fine.
Pros: Software to set up the printer worked flawlessly. I wanted to use it as a home network printer and thought maybe I needed to use the USB install first and then the network one later. Nope. The setup asks how you want to use it and you tell it and then it sets it up. My Actiontec gateway (FIOS) an...
Cons: I got the extended warranty and tried to register online only to be told by the website that those numbers on the warranty card were invalid. Please try calling customer support instead. I tried that very thing only to get hung up on, shunted, and otherwise given the shuffle. Eventually I was abl...
Summary: Bought this after seeing its on the supported printer list for the Eee computers. Straight-forward set up. After initialization is finished, just connect USB at printer then Eee. Auto detected and ready to run. Default is correct: FOOMATIC + HPIJS.
Pros: Very good to excellent text printing under OpenOffice. No hassels setting up under Eee Xandros Linux:discs not needed. Free shipping and a 50 discount means a Benjamin for cost. Inks not overpriced here.
Cons: Big heavy and noisy compared to the LXMK 1100 A.I.O. its replacing. No duplex printing. A pair of print-heads cost as much as the whole printer. Quick setup guide could be more verbose, though I read picture language OK. No USB cable.
