Summary: The K5400 I received was to be a replacement for my old K5400 which has a defective page feed. (I removed a paper jam and destroyed the paper feed, apparently. The new K5400 doesn't install, however. I use the downloaded driver, OJProK5X00_Basic_8_3, but I keep getting a screen: "Installing Officejet Pro K5300/5400 series ... Overall Progress- Checking System (Step 1/4) 28%" which stays on the screen indefinitely (several hours) with no further action.
Summary: I bought this printer for its relatively high productivity feature even though I didn't print that much. The first one broke down and stopped printing within a week. The replacement printer, a few hundred pages later, needed a new printhead. Within months I went through 3 sets of color ink cartridges and two sets of printheads which cost a lot more than printer itself. It used up more ink to align and to selfclean printheads than to print documents.
Summary: HP should stay out of the printer business. This is a prime example of poor R&D, and just pushing a product out to make a buck. Never had a good experience with an HP printer. I am in the IT field, so I have a lot of experience dealing with these buggers.
Summary: Had this Printer for 4 years uses refurbished ink cartridges with no problems. Cons will only network with Windows Vista or XP. It is loud and slow but gets the job done with high quality printing ideal for labels and card stock. I have 9 pcs and now using Windows 7, Windows server 2008 and have to use a dedicated pc for this printer via usb. Gave 4 stars because no updated network driver.
Summary: I have purchased three of these printers, two for myself and one for my pastor. the first one printed 47,000 pages before the print head started missing some spots. I use the printer for many different uses, in all of the many different uses the printer has done a very good job. easy to install a continuous inking system on this printer. Makes it cheap printing.
Summary: This is one of the best ink jet printers ever. As well as large 20 cl Cartridges you can have an extra large Black 70+ cl So economical - reliable - fast and efficient a really reliable work horse Such a shame HP decided to stop producing Come on HP start producing again - these fancy new all singing & dancing multi purpose Print - Fax - Scan and no doubt soon - sing - are O.K but oh boy do they eat ink and are not a patch on a K 5400 if you want a quality fast printer B...
Summary: I have owned the HP K5400 inkjet printer for over 3 years now. It is the best printer I've owned bar none. It has individual black, cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges that last much longer than any of the many lesser quality inkjets I've owned, most HP and some Epson and Canon. Also the refill cartridges work well from Inkjet superstore. The cost per copy is on par with a laser printer. I still use an old HP Laserjet 4 "workhorse" printer too.
Summary: I bought the K5400 when it first came out. I liked that the ink cartridges were separate from the print heads, and that the cartridges were rather large. I had the printer for about a year and used it to print lots of photos and military documents.I then deployed to Iraq and was in need of a printer out there. I was so happy with the K5400 that I decided to order the K5400 pro, with the LAN port, 2nd paper try, and duplexer.
I thought getting this printer for free was a great deal

Summary: OK, I know this printer went out of production three years ago, but if anyone is considering a refurbished unit I am hoping this will help.... Pros: Fairly quick. The build quality seems to be good. Sturdy unit. The web interface for the NIC is very well done and intuitive. Duplexer works well - which is uncommon for ink jet printers. Cons: -The printer sucks some very expensive ink.
