better be made of money to keep this printer running!

  • Summary: I think the reason these printers are going so cheap on ebay is because they are really expensive to use. Don't get me wrong now, the printer works great if you can afford the ink and all the accessories. This is a lesson learned, it's not a very economical printer to own unless you can find someone who has the hook up on the accessories.

Paper jams plastic part falls off

Beaverkill "Beaverkill", Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: This was a great printer, I used it for many greeting cards. When I put in the regular good quality paper, it would jam. If you fed it a sheet at a time, it was fine. I was printing about 20 sheets, on the 3rd sheet, it jammed and I couldn't remove the paper. After taking the back off, it still did not want to come out. Finally it did, but a small piece of plastic came out to. Doesn't look broken off, but paper will not come out evenly.

Prints well, jams a lot and one more thing....

Nxp, Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: Like they said, prints fine, but jams too often. One other thing..you can use it with a usb print server (not included) for network or wireless use, but when the thing jams the message handling does not function properly, especially with Vista. On every jam, I needed to unplug the device from the print server first, then fix the jam. Otherwise the printer will keep saying that it is jammed and the network will keep not seeing the printer.

Poor paper feed and frequent paper jams...

Christophe G. Ouimette "DoctorOui", Amazon
8 February 2009
  • Summary: When the paper actually feeds properly into the machine, I must say, print quality was very good. The problem is that I have wanted to put this printer through a wall on numerous occasions!!! Either the paper won't feed, it'll feed incorrectly or it'll jam..... Brutal! Currently looking for a new printer... I have seen enough other reviews reporting similar problems to know that mine is not just an isolated incident... steer clear my friends!!!

Great until it breaks!

Adriann Anfiteatro, Amazon

  • Summary: Used the printer off and on for both documents and photos, good print quality. Had it safely stored for a year. Been using it again very lightly I might add, and the USB port on the printer died. All the sudden no printer recognition. All HP can say - is it is probably cheaper to just buy a new one.

Whaaaaattttt!!! it's not working???!!!!!

Amazon Customer "Munchkin", Amazon
7 February 2007
  • Summary: I just bought this printer last July '06 and have been using it sporadically since most of the time I am not home. I purchase this item so that I can print some stuff for my wedding. After probably the 50th use (and I meant not heavy usage such as printing 3 to 5 pages with few graphics only) it stopped working! Now I can't print anything on it, not even for the stuff I need for my wedding.

Poor quality

Ruby, Amazon
6 April 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this printer because it was nice looking and advertised prints for as low as 24 cents. I was disappointed with this printer. This is an item I did not buy from Amazon but purchased at Staples Office Supply because of a rebate offer. I returned the product. The picture quality was poor. The pictures were washed out looking. The faces were white with pink but no warm overtones. You couldn't tell people's eye color.

Printing Quality Good - performance bad!

J. Frick "J. Frick", Amazon
6 April 2006
  • Summary: I purchased this product in February of 2006. By October of 2006, all of the sudden, I had problems with the paper feeding correctly. I called HP, I spoke with a sales person from Staples (where the printer was purchased) and they suggested I get a cleaning kit or check the type of paper I was putting in and cross checking with how the printer was defaulted in the computer to print.

Ehrlich gesagt, HP hat mich enttäuscht!

Klopsie, Ciao

  • Summary: Vor ein paar Wochen haben wir uns endlich ein Notebook gekauft und zwar im Media Markt den Toshiba A100. Als Draufgabe gab es damals einen Fotodrucker aus dem Hause HP und da dieses Notebook ansonsten noch zwei Euro teurer gewesen wäre, haben wir dann eben den Drucker mitgenommen, obwohl ich nun wirklich nicht so extrem stark auf die Firma HP stehe.
  • Pros: leichtes Handling, guter Preis
  • Cons: unmögliche Installation, Bildqualität
