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