Carriage locked up

Carl D., Newegg
29 June 2015
  • Summary: I just bought a HP envy 5530. Mixed reviews. I'll see how that goes.
  • Pros: When it works it's great. Out of the box and up to 1 year.
  • Cons: Noisy all the time in prep & print modes after a year or so It started double feeding paper. It always used a lot of ink even in the lowest settings. Expensive buying 5 cartridges a clip too. Economical this printer was not. Finally the other day the carriage locked up.. no paper jam or anything ...

Shame on HP

Theresa W., Newegg
24 November 2012
  • Summary: HP, what are you doing to your quality? I am a lifetime buyer of your products and in recent years you have gone soooo far down hill. I complained (went up the ladder) about your DV7 laptop which only lasted a year because it got soooo hot and you did nothing. Again, SHAME ON YOU!
  • Pros: It works and does the purpose.
  • Cons: I replaced all ink cartridges. I set the ink on black only while I printed many pages (again, BLACK ONLY). After two months I got a message that my color ink was running out. HOW???? I never used it. SHAME ON YOU HP FOR PULLING THIS STUNT ON US!!! Anything to make money on ink so you set these pr...

Aaron M., Newegg
20 October 2012
  • Pros: Fast High quality prints Nice design Great scanner Easy to connect via wireless
  • Cons: Display is pretty bright with no dim setting, so I have to shut it off every night as it is in my bedroom. Kinda annoying.

Not very good....too much trouble

Newegg
22 December 2011
  • Summary: The Printer: Makes printing AT the printer easier than usual. It's extremely noisy, though. Moves a lot and isn't very smooth. Let's just say you couldn't print without the house knowing about it. The ink doesn't last very long.
  • Pros: Not many pros. It prints, when you can get it to print and it prints pictures with pretty good quality.
  • Cons: The Drivers: As an IT guy, I know what HP does with drivers and they're pretty good when it comes to corporate type drivers for corporate printing. Consumer drivers? Absolutely horrible. They couldn't write a consumer driver to run a hammer, let alone a consumer printer. So...having problems with...

Very nice printer but not economical

Zach S., Newegg
9 December 2011
  • Summary: The printer overall works very well and is a good choice for some one looking for a cheap wireless printer they won't use very often. For any one who will need to print more than once a week I suggest you keep shopping around.
  • Pros: The overall features of this printer are very nice. I love the wireless and Bluetooth capabilities and the SD card slot. The paper feed also works very well. I have not had one paper jam so far.
  • Cons: I have only owned this printer between 1-2 months and only printed about 40 pages through it, but I am already receiving a notification that my black ink is running low. Although the ink cartridges are fairly inexpensive this low of print economy will definitely will dig a hole in your wallet if ...

decent printer

Anonymous, Newegg
14 August 2011
  • Summary: I didn't buy the lexmark because after reading reviews, the $4.99 black ink cartridges don't last nearly as long as the HP XL ink. (sure it can...if you don't want crisp,clear documents!)
  • Pros: Just over a month and no issues! I love the ease of wireless printing! Fairly quiet...much quieter than my 4 year old printer that it's in my den.
  • Cons: I suppose ink will cost a ton but that's the case with all manufacturer's.

Super Great Printer

Brian D., Newegg
24 July 2011
  • Pros: WOW! This is a great printer and my wife has definitely used it enough already that I feel we've already received a ROI from it. All my printers are HP and I'll continue to stick with HP. Great prints, great photos and better then the energizer bunny!
  • Cons: None

Thought I Like it but now I hate it

Jordan J., Newegg
19 July 2011
  • Summary: Stay away, I got this print when it first came out at $299, read the reviews on here and the similar things that are happening to me now were written. Bad printer, but here I go again and buying another printer.
  • Pros: I work in a Data Center of a Major University. Every once in awhile one of the Admins or programmers will ask us to help them with some issues in their office. Guess what mainly they are, printers! Before this job I worked on a lot of Dell/LexMar (Same) and HP printers. I loved HP, I even went an...
  • Cons: Don't buy it!!! Stay away unless its the same price as the ink than buy it and chuck it. From day one well more like 2nd month, I didn't open it right away to test it. It was hell. Would not see my N network and I didn't even have a dual band or 5ghz N wireless at the time. I think I might have b...
