Overrides Print Color Choices

Dave in Connecticut, Amazon

  • 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".

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

  • 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.

  • Pros: Nice appearance. Touch-sensitive display. Ink cartridges can be replaced by preschooler. Excellent print life when using Vivera ink.
  • Cons: Buggy and feature-deficient device driver with lousy documentation. Ink cartridges are very expensive and run out quickly. Printer driver does not allow Photoshop or Windows to do color management, and the printer's color management is really lame. This printer is therefore in my opinion not comp...

Great prints, but drinks ink like crazy!

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.
