The tablet is a gimmick and it is barely usable.

Summary: In this printer, you can only access the controls and settings and scan documents, etc. with the included HP Zeen tablet. Now without this tablet, you can't print or do anything. This tablet never connects to the WiFi no matter how close it is to the router. To top it off, it's very cheap. The tablet crashes every so often and it's really a pain to try to be patient with the thing.
Summary: Horrible experience trying to use this printer the past 3 years. HP is more interested in trying to pitch Barnes and Noble and more failed business models on their interface than they are trying to actually print a document. I struggle to get it to print simple things like a boarding pass. Stay clear of HP.
Summary: The Printer needs to be cleaned monthly. The Zeen needs to be reset every other day. Eventually both will fail, Save your money and buy something that doesn't look as pretty but actually functions.
Summary: Do not waste your time with this printer is you EVER plan to print invitations using off sized paper. The manufacturer of the paper has video instructions but the printer will not allow for this sized paper. Extremely frustrating. Guess I'll just return all this garbage to the store.
Summary: I really hate this printer. Nothing but trouble. I have never been able to use it without having an issue. When I want to print I want to print not spend an hour fixing something. The other thing I hate about HP printers is the amount of junk they install. Including the drivers. Besides this the amount of ink this thing uses even for setting up is robbery. When I install new ink cartridges the levels go down immediately after setting up.
Summary: I like the way this printer worked, when it worked, but it doesn't last. And I'm the nut that bought 2. My first one came in Jan 2012 and lasted 6 months. For some reason, I thought it was just a fluke so I ordered the same one again. This one came in July 2012 and now here I am, March 2013, and it doesn't work. What a piece of junk. I wouldn't get another one if HP paid me to. I'm trying a Canon this time and I really hope it last longer than 8 months.
Summary: I actually own a bunch of HP products, (computer, monitors, laptops) and have been quite happy with the them. But after suffering through months of headache with this particular printer (constant connection issues, now the black cartridge won't print, high ink price), I can honestly say the greatest satisfaction I've had in the last month was getting in one of the backhoes at work and sticking the frost tooth right through the center of the piece of garbage.
Summary: I've owned an older HP Photosmart and its done a good job with printing photos and regular print outs. So, I didn't think I would have any problems with buying the HP Photosmart eStation. I was completely wrong 1. The ink is expensive. It uses the 5 ink system with the photo black. I have yet to produce an acceptable photo image. 2. The ink will NOT last long and I've purchased the high capacity ink cartridge.
Summary: Had it for months and just doesn't work consistently. Constantly getting "broken pipe" communications errors. Constantly says its out of paper when its not. Print jobs stall and can't be deleted. Removable touch pad is a joke--useless with a confusing interface. Its junk. Would never buy an HP printer again. (as you can tell, its been a bit frustrating.
