Summary: PRINTER WORKS GREAT WHEN PRINTING ON ONE SIDED. WHEN TRYING TO DO DUPLEXING (two sided coping)THE PAPER JAMS UP ALL THE TIME. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF SOMETHING CAN BE DONE TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM. I SENT THE SELLER AN EMAIL TO LET HIM KNOW WHATS GOING ON AND HE NEVER GOT BACK TO ME.
Summary: II got this printer because I wanted a color printer that would connect to my home wireless network so that my wife and daughter could print from their laptops. The good news: The printer connected to the network without any problems. The printer is very, very fast. The text print quality is superb. The graphics are a step down from some printers but then again this is not advertised as a photo printer and graphics are more than satisfactory. The bad news.
Summary: Comments about HP Officejet Pro K5400DTN Inkjet Printer: I've used the HP OfficeJet Pro L7580 which is the same print system as this one and the ink cartridges last forever and are affordable. Very good printer reliable and affordable, just a little loud and large though.
Summary: The printer works as advertised. It is fast and the duplex feature is very handy when printing large documents. I chose this model because of the separate ink cartridges. My only complaint about the product received is the short warranty period of the print heads. One had a warranty period of just under 2 months and the other just under 4.
Summary: and have not been disappointed over the past year of ownership. Here is the quote from the review that sold me: "[M]y research points to the HP Officejet K5400 as having the most cost-efficient ink supply right now. The estimated cost per page of black ink for the K5400 is 1.4 cents, and color is 5.9 cents per page ... It prints extremely fast, faster than any desktop printer I've seen. It runs reliably, and prints with near laser-quality for office stuff.
Summary: This printer has all the features anyone might want and low cost ink supplies as well. It is well to note that if you want to print on paper that is heavier than 20 lb. Bond you better stick to tray 1. The specs tell you this and in practice the machine complains mightily when you try to print 70 lb. Bond from tray 2. It works but it is not a pretty sound.
Summary: The HP k5400dtn is a great printer, has two speeds, fast and faster. We use these printer with our Continuous Ink Systems. They were designed as a continuous ink system from the factory, ink tubes run from the cartridges to the separate printheads. Pros Extra page tray (600 sheets) Duplex printing (both sides, great for brochures, we recommend HP tri-fold matte) Network ready (Ethernet) CIS ready (install a continuous ink system in less than five min.
Summary: The product assembles well. Then problems then start. Despite carefully doing everything according to instructions, the printer would barely put ink on paper. Within 23 printed pages, the yellow ink cartridge light indicated it was out of ink, despite being brand new. Soon no ink, even pure black and white MS Word documents would not print despite what sounded like the print heads working fine. I called HP and spend 45 minutes on the phone with a tech.
Summary: It is far better than the HP932C that it replaced. Faster, better print quality, networkable, two-sided printing works very good. I use an IMac, it was very easy to setup. For the money I am well pleased. Only con is it's size.
Summary: Service from Overstock.com was excellent. Product was delivered fast and is as advertised at far less than I would have paid at a retail store. The HP Printer, however, is disappointing. Out of the box the printeads (or cartridges?) worked poorly, even after multiple cleanings and calibrations. I've bought numerous HP printers since 1990, and this is the first one that doesn't include a printed manual. (You can print it from the CD.
