) It's really too bad that it's so poorly constructed

Summary: Only giving one star because zero is not an option. I have had this printer for years and it has never worked right. Search for paper feed d7260 and you will find all kinds of people having problems getting this thing to recognize that there is paper in the tray. I think in the years I have owned it, I've managed to print a total of 20 pages and yet still went through three sets of ink cartridges. My next color printer will be a Lexmark.
Summary: Nothing but problems. Won't install, software installs things that it doesn't ask if you would like, bunch of crap. I would avoid almost all HP home printers until they get their act together.
Summary: It prints well. it prints text very quickly. The printouts generally look good and it doesn't jam at all. These are the good point about the printer. The reason that I really hate this printer is because it feels like asks for a new ink cartridge every few days. about a week ago it asked for a couple of new cartridges. I went out and bought them, and came back and installed them and then it asked for a new black one. (which it didn't before.
Summary: I am a student and only use the black ink (ever) because I dont have time to print fun things.. However, I have been forsed to buy new colored ink cartridges over and over even though I dont use them. If the colored ink is "expired" the black printing function doesnt work and the whole printer is useless. SO I have the option of buying $45 worth of ink I dont use or not being able to print at all. This is a huge ripoff by HP!!
Summary: Let me start off by saying if you need a photo printer this one is good. The prints come out great. They are very high res for an inkjet at this price point. But the quality doesn't stop at photo paper, it prints great documents on sheet paper, transparencies come out good, as well as on card stock. (however be aware, the printer does not like to feed card stock on its own, so you have to help it along.) That being said I've never had a jam. NOT ONCE!
Summary: I do wedding photography and use several of the HP D7260 printers. The six color dye inks produce the best and smoothest skin tones, which is important when you photograph primarily people. It also does a great job in accurately reproducing the pastel colors found in bridesmaids dresses. I also do some scenic and outdoor photography and had many photos published including calendar photos.
Summary: I've had my HP D7260 for some 3 years or so. I'm amazed at the speed and quality of prints this little machine puts out on a very consistent basis. Evidently others are too as I'm constantly asked what, "How do you get such beautiful prints?" I have printed photos for years using a variety of printers and I've got a LOT of battle scars as a result. This printer is the best I've laid my hands on.
Summary: I got this at a bargain of $60.00. naturally like all other HP printers they get you in the butt with the cost of ink. here you have 6 cartridges and you can't use any refilled ones and not anything but HP made. so the problems here are when I go to do the first print of the day it takes forever to warm up, in contrast my old desktop gets off in two seconds. It also, as noted by others, consumes ink by the truckload, and even when i do not do much printing.
Summary: The D7260 is a reasonably good printer. Text is sharp and photos come out with good color if you tweak the settings enough. My issue with it is that it uses color ink when it's not supposed to. I typically have it set to "Plain paper, Fast draft, black and white". Despite that, it slowly uses up the color cartridges. I brought this to the attention of HP and their solution was to try to sell me another printer.
