Owning a 1959 British sports car is less labor intensive than using this printer.

Chuck, Amazon

  • Summary: Printer lasted exactly 4 years. I doubt there was any period longer than 15-days when the printer functioned without error.

hp disappoints again

  • Summary: bought this because it could print up to 12 in wide and 4 ft long. The printer is constantly jamming or saying paper tray is empty when it isn't. Without exception every printing experience has been frustrating and a bad experience. That being said the worst part is the cost of ink.

Burns through ink, printing is high quality, and stopped working after one year

Brett A. Machtig, Amazon
25 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought both the large format and small format versions of this printer and up till now, bought only HP. I still use the earlier model and am satisfied with its capacity and reliability. This model of printers all stopped working within one year.

Bruce Harper, Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: Would be perfect if not for the maddening, puzzling "replace print head" warnings which come and go. Also ink is $$$.

Printer without a country.

webster26, Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this printer a couple of years ago to occasionally print largish photographs, and when it worked it produced excellent results, though it does require careful picture selection, and image processing to get the best out of it.
