Printer printing paper crumpled

Ronnie Samuel, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • 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.

Issue w/ drivers on Windows 7 64 bit

B. Tarbuck, Amazon
9 May 2012
  • Summary: This printer is very good unless you are using 64 bit Windows 7. I've spent many hours trying to make this work and it just seems to be incompatible. I don't know precisely why I thought it made sense to use 64 bit Windows in the first place as I'm only running 4 GB of RAM but that's another story. On my 32 bit Windows 7 it ran fine and was a nice companion to print 11x17 / ledger / tabloid color projects and I would recommend it.

"Disappointing"

  • Pros: Large ink cartridges, accepts B-size paper, good print quality (when it actually prints)
  • Cons: Hopelessly unreliable, hard to reset default conditions, obscure or missing error messages

Hewlett-Packard is clearly on a downward spiral

Tom Jones, Amazon
9 September 2010
  • Summary: HP used to make great printers--they were reasonably cheap to operate, did what they promised, and lasted forever. Those days are gone. I needed a large-format color printer for normal color graphics (not photos). The first one died within a few weeks; HP replaced it under warranty. The replacement is 14 months old, and seems to be dying too.

"Good print quality... IF YOU CAN GET IT TO WORK"

kakalabda, CNET
6 December 2009
  • Pros: Great print quality - better photos than Costco - and can handle a large variety of paper sizes.
  • Cons: Major issues with paper feed mechanism - shows that it's out of paper when the tray is full - and the replacement product from HP service didn't fix the problem. No screen of any kind makes troubleshooting a pain.

Replaced Wide Format Printer

Harley Dixon "AgelessWings", Amazon
22 June 2009
  • Summary: I gave this a low rating, not because it is a poor printer, but because it can't do everything I expected it to from it's description and specifications without a lot of messing around. And maybe not even then. Not as near as good as the older HP 1220 that it is to replace. I use it to print model aircraft plans and the included instruction booklets. I develop the plans in both raster graphic and CAD programs. Some pages are up to 24 inches long.

Pain in the Arse - Think Twice, or 3x, Before Buying

BWM, Amazon
3 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought this printer after HP's #45 cartridges no longer worked in my Deskjet 1220c. (After buying 7 new cartridges and having them not work in either printer I tried them in, I surmised it was a cartridge problem - since old cartridges still worked in said printers. HP surmised I needed all new printers.) I paid overnight shipping to get this monster in here because it's vital I have a large size printer for printing drawings, etc.
