Summary: Do not purchase this printer. Eats ink like crazy. I refill my cartridges using kit but printer won't recognize them. Worked ok at first but after a year it started clogging and spitting out blank pages. Now the stupid thing turned off by itself and won't start again until I unplug the back (error message pops up after I do warning me that doing so will ruin printer. Hate this printer.
Burns through ink, printing is high quality, and stopped working after one year

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. HP seems to care more about selling ink, and less about providing value. It's time to shop other brands.
Summary: Looks like...after putting up with three years of challenges, I have to add my comments. Always had photo paper feed problem but now it has decided to shut down at inopportune times. The power button does not work and forced to unplug power supply. This causes warning that it was an improper shut down. Additionally, the ink levels are showing to be low even after installing HP cartridges [I have never used after market or refilled them].
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. I never had any connectivity problems with it, the drivers installed easily, though HP does include a lot of unnecessary and some problematic software.
Summary: I bought this printer when my old HP printer of six years finally quit working. I can't believe they released this model. The low level ink alarms within weeks after replacing. Even when I haven't printed but a few pages. It's unbelievable. It continuously shuts down in the middle of a print job. It won't power on when pressing the power button. I have to unplug and plug back in to get any kind of life out of it.
Summary: The negative reviews are accurate. I bought this thing based on good reviews here and it's been nothing but trouble. The paper jams and won't feed. It sucked the 4X6 inch tray in and wouldn't release it. I had to rip it out to get it to work again. The colors are almost always off...don't buy it! Mine is headed for freecycle with about $150.00 worth of ink!! I bought it in 2010 but used it very little.
Summary: As other reviewers state, it goes through ink at a prodigious rate. If that wasn't bad enough, the time to first page is just horrible, it runs the print heads back and forth several times before each print job. Probably a good 30 seconds worth. Lastly after just a short while it stopped piking up paper out of the photo paper tray. sadly I can;t find anything good to say about this printer.
Summary: Against my judgement, my avid scrapbooking wife purchased this printer. First off, this printer drinks the ink like a drunken sailor. On top of this, we started experiencing random shutdowns when printing documents. It started out infrequently, but nowadays you're lucky if you get to actually print something before it shuts itself off. If you look on the internet, this is a very, very common problem with the printer and there's not much of a response from HP about it.
Summary: This printer worked great and made great full color prints for about 6 months, at which time it quit working. I received a replacement under warranty, however it was missing a piece. That piece is no longer manufactured because this printer is no longer manufactured. Find another printer.
