Summary: Why not to buy this printer: 1. When you try to print one page it will send ten pages through the roller at a time, creating a paper jam. 2. It will not work if one color of ink is depleted. Say you want to use only black ink but your magenta is out? You can't print.
Summary: Bought two for my office, for medium to low use. As soon as warranty was up, had to replace both print heads. $$ cha ching Even using HP cartridges the printed material is faded, streaky or the cartridges just won't work.
Summary: BE CAREFUL installing ink cartridges. If you bend the spring, it's at least $100 to buy a new print head. I haven't found a source for just replacement springs. Otherwise, the printer works great via USB, Ethernet, or wireless. Prints to Win7 and MacOS without needing to download drivers.
Summary: Fast, very reliable work horse. Printed 44K pages in 4 years. Used approximately 3-4 XL cartridges each year for the mentioned volume. It was initially on usb and later on the network. We almost never had an issue with it. Until I accidentally damaged it.
Summary: The best wide format printer I have used. I like the individual ink tanks separate from the print head. The XL cartridges have enough ink volume for all my large print job needs. Took sometime to get it calibrated with Photoshop for photo output but after that I have used it exclusively for large...
Summary: Having purchased a similar printer HP K8600 dn, and trying desperately to get a replacement because it had worked so well; this one is a disappointment. From the word go it tore the paper; sometimes it just crumples the paper. Therefore I cannot use it for printing 20lb paper at all.

Summary: So far so good. Arrived quickly, easy to set up. Printing good quality and no issues with the paper feed. We had one, same model, in the past and it lasted us about 7 years which is why we purchased a new one. The paper feed sensor went bad on the old one. I would purchase again and recommend it.
