Constant cartridge failure makes this a terrible purchase.

Summary: My old HP Deskjet worked flawlessly for years, but when it wore out I had to decide on a new printer I waited for this one to arrive in the stores. What a waste of time and money! The printer cartridges continually fail and the quality of photographs and color printing is unpredictable at best. I have spent a small fortune on cartridges, all HP brand, no cheap or refilled cartridges, but I feel like a gambler in desparate need of rehab.
Summary: This printer was very nice for the first month we owned it - nice pictures with the photo printing cartridge. Then, we had the first cartridge "failure" and it has been downhill since. Nearly brand new cartridges fail, producing horrible prints and wasting large amounts of money. All of our attempts to get help from HP did not solve the problem and now we don't even bother trying to fix the failed print cartridges.
Summary: This is the third hp printer I have purchased. It will be the last. I had this printer for 1 year and 8 days and it sits on top of the other hp photosmart printers that also failed within a year. I purchased this unit at walmart because my other hp failed and needed to print a contract that day. I liked the idea of card reader and the lcd screen. Now I'm after a printer that I will not have to replace once a year.
Summary: We have had our hp Photosmart 7760 for just 7 months and already my photos look TERRIBLE!!! The blues are turning green, the flesh tones are fading to white and the entire photo takes on a sickening yellow tone. I AM BITTERLY DISPPOINTED!!! The pictures are SO BAD that it is NOT WORTH spending the money for the ink and the photo paper. HP's solution was to use PhotoShop to add a Sepia Tone to the pictures -- YEAH, RIGHT -- then I'll have YELLOWISH-BROWN PICTURES!!!
Summary: We bought this printer after a Salesperson gave it a high recommendation. We were told that the pictures would look like store bought photos. After hooking it up and loading the software we started printing. We were extremely dissapointed! Our pictures were VERY grainy. We tried switching the print option to best instead of normal, which helped but our pictures were still not perfect. The colors looked washed out, even though we were using the HP paper.
I wouldn't have purchased if I would have had all the facts

Summary: I purchased this printer for my mother. She doesn't own a computer and would always have either myself or a sibling print her pictures for her. So I thought this was a great idea since it has 2 USB ports and takes 4 different memory cards. Well what you are not told is that the USB ports are only for HP products and they do not sell an adaptor or anything else so that this product can be used with another type of camera.
Summary: Without fail, everytime I use this printer for anything other than pictures (i.e. just to print out a simple word document), the paper route jams, pulls in multiple sheets at a time, and/or says to add paper even though there is already paper in the tray, and a word document that should take a couple minutes to print out becomes a twenty minute ordeal.
