Overrides Print Color Choices

Dave in Connecticut, Amazon
4 October 2010
  • 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.

Quality prints but lacks in other areas.

  • Summary: I have had this printer about a year now. I love the quality of photo printing, however, I think it's more cost effective to buy prints at my local Target or Walgreens, especially when a 5 pack of color cartridges just set me back more than $50 and that's not including black! When you first turn on the printer, it spends about 2 solid minutes going through "printer preparation" so make sure you are in no hurry to print something quick before leaving out the door.

Doesn't do glossy paper, HP cust svc. stinks

BC in NJ "BC in NJ", Amazon

  • Summary: This printer was purchased about 5 months ago to replace an old Lexmark printer that finally gave in to old age. The D7260 makes beautiful prints and the 4x6 photo paper tray is a handy feature but the printer won't pick up 8.5x11 glossy brochure paper. As someone else mentioned, HP customer service reps are pleasant enough to talk to but after over an hour on the phone, the rep still thought he could fix the printer with a software review from his cubicle in India.

Beautiful prints, but eats ink!

Friend of L, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a love/hate relationship with this printer, and if I had it to do all over again, I don't think I'd buy it. The prints are amazing. Even in the lower quality settings, it really prints beautifully. But it flies through ink. I have owned it since November and I have replaced some cartridges several times (but some of them I haven't replaced at all. Go figure.)The ink is very pricey. It also jams very easily, regardless of the type of paper used.

HP D7260

  • Summary: Drucker ist für "Vieldrucker" nicht geeignet, ich bin einer der eben viel druckt und ich habe bereits den 4den D7260, leider halten diese Drucker nur 11-13 Monate dann sind diese Drucker zum entsorgen. Das Positive ist jedoch das die Tinte nicht eintrocknet (so wie beim Epson) man kann den Drucker auch einige Tage ohne zu Drucken stehen lassen.
