Beautiful looking doorstop

K. Thorp, Amazon
13 August 2008
  • Summary: This is a very good-looking printer; it gives the impression of a solid well-designed product. However after the warranty expired the printer stopped printing. The computer no longer recognizes it.

INK HOG!

theowens18, Amazon
10 August 2008
  • Summary: I just purchased this printer on clearance 2 days ago. I have printed 4 letters and approximately 6 or 7 "signs" on glossy photo paper for my son's birthday party. I must report that I'm already out of ink! I have NEVER EVER had this problem with my old Lexmark printer.

Worst printer I've ever worked with!

Shaliali, Amazon
20 July 2008
  • Summary: I find it difficult to believe that Hewlett Packard actually put its name on this printer. (I wouldn't if I'd had anything to do with it.) First the printer reports constant errors with ink cartridges. These are false reports: All I have to do is open and close the door. It has frequent paper jams.

Not good for labels

Bob, Amazon
16 July 2008
  • Summary: I've had the HP #7850 printer for a few years. It's the second HP printer that I've had. For the most part, it works ok. The speed and the picture quality are ok. However, the biggest propblem that I have, and it's the same with the last HP printer that I bought, and that is: When you are printing...

Good images, TERRIBLE build quality

Manuel Calavera, Amazon
6 July 2008
  • Summary: This thing is terrible. It almost never feeds paper correctly- nearly every time I tell the computer to print, the 7850 doesn't grab the paper, just makes a lot of noise and then stops until I press the ok button and crawl under my desk to hand feed each page to it.

Stay Away!!!

D. C Frezza, Amazon
30 June 2008
  • Summary: I've had this printer for about 6 months...6 long months(in printer years). I does every thing a printer should not due. Streaky, missing print, colors don't appear on one page(but will on the next), and gets jammed on a regular basis. Pros...Non Toxic

Piece of CR%P

tedj1957, Amazon
23 June 2008
  • Summary: This has got to be one of the worst printers ever made. From day one you have to feed it one piece of paper at a time or else it will either not grab the paper or grab 2 or 3 sheets. It's constantly jamming and HP "support" is totally worthless.

Fine, but thirsty, printer

Louie, Amazon
18 June 2008
  • Summary: I've had this printer for about a month. It's almost perfect. It has a "fast draft" mode that is really fast and that's good enough for stuff you want to print, read, and then toss. Its only negatives are a small paper tray and its expensive ink.

Piece of garbage

Ellen Preston, Amazon
25 May 2008
  • Summary: This printer is a piece of garbage. It worked ok the first time or two, but after that forget it. Even though it has paper, it won't print and says it's out of paper. It will click and make all sorts of odd noises and if it does grab a sheet in the feeder it will often grab multiple sheets and jam.
