Don't waste your money

  • Summary: At first I loved it. It has a nice sturdy, pleasing body. It "looks" like a nice printer. The prints were fantastic. But after only 2 1/2 months it has stopped printing altogether.

Piece of garbage

Ellen Preston, Amazon

  • 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.

  • Summary: Produces stunning borderless photo prints that rival the pictures I used to get from the photo lab. Software has nice photo editing features.

Fine, but thirsty, printer

Louie, Amazon

  • 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.

HP made a piece of JUNK!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 January 2008
  • Summary: I bought this printer in November of 2005. I haven't used it all that much and it's been treated with care and today for no reason whatsoever, I started eating the paper like a monster and making a horrible clicking noise.

Accomplishment just to get this printer to print

CurseReversed102704, Amazon
9 January 2008
  • Summary: To sum up this printer, it is a pain in the a**. It won't take the paper that I have loaded in, and if it does it will often get jammed. I had an assignment due for one of my classes with 20 minutes to spare, it took 15 minutes for the printer to print a complete copy.

Serious ink hog and sick of out of paper msg when its not

Cruisenut, Amazon
6 January 2008
  • Summary: If you want good quality printing at a good price. Then this printer will suit your needs. However, I am constantly having to replace the ink. And for some reason the printer can't sense when there IS PAPER LOADED. Started feeding fine.

Poor Quality

stolan, Amazon

  • Summary: I've never taken the time to write a review before, but after struggling for 2 hours to get 5 envelopes to print, I've had it! This printer sucks ink, clogs frequently unless it is used almost daily, and has constant paper jams. In short, it's a piece of junk.

Good images, TERRIBLE build quality

Manuel Calavera, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • 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.
