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.

Hewlett-Packard is clearly on a downward spiral

Tom Jones, Amazon
24 May 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.

Replaced Wide Format Printer

Harley Dixon "AgelessWings", Amazon
24 May 2010
  • 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.

One problem after another

J. Jupp, Amazon
9 February 2010
  • Summary: I've used HP printers large and small for twenty years, and they've always been the most reliable. But this is dreadful, one problem after annother, mechanical feed problems when changing paper sizes, head alignments problems, all kinds of mysterious speckling and banding. The build quality is also very poor, the paper output tray has a terrible cheap snapping action and the feed tray is ridiculously sensitive and will only pick up paper if its loaded millimetre perfect.

User Review

Sunil Patankar, Naaptol
29 August 2009
  • Summary: This a good printer because it can produce good quality prints, at high speed, on large paper sizes such as A3, it has the billboard printing feature (or tiling feature). However now here is the bad news:- The black yellow pribnthead can get clogged anytime, it can never be repaired or restarted. It is always in short supply. It is horribly expensive. It is a nightmare.

So disappointed

K. Luck "Katy Luck", Amazon
28 April 2008
  • Summary: My well-loved HP cp1700 is no longer supported by HP (Vista problems) so I bought the K8600 in the expectation that it would be as good. It isn't. It's clever yes, and fast; but don't be fooled by HP's claim that the cartridges will print an average of 850 sheets - I have had to replace 4 cartridges and the 5th is low and I have managed a mere 157 prints, which makes it very expensive on ink.

Endlose Selbstprüfungen bevor gedruckt werden kann.

teas4two "tees4two2", Amazon
22 December 2009
  • Summary: Als Fan von HP-Druckern ist dieses Gerät in Sachen Druck-Qualität prima. Jedoch stören die endlosen Selbstprüfungen des Geräts. Teilweise kann erst nach 15 Minuten zum Drucken begonnen werden. Währenddessen ist keine Information am PC sichtbar. Nach der Prüfung kann es schon mal passieren, dass das eingelegte DIN A3 Photopapier (für den nächsten Druckauftrag) als Testseite bedruckt wird (grummel!).
