"Nothing But Problems for 2 Years."0.5 starson by jymlewis
Pros: When it works, it's AWESOME! Prints very fast. Quality is as good as my $500 home printer.Bluetooth means no wires. Love that.
Cons: My unit is constantly malfunctioning. It tells me the ink has run out when the ink is still new. It has some problem where all the lights flash back and forth constantly forever. When this happens there is no way to stop it. Takes forever to reset.
Summary: The constant malfunctioning is by far the most annoying thing. I've been using this piece of crap printer for 2 years now. I've learned a few things that make it malfunction. If you don't keep the printer totally level at all times, it starts to malfunction. So throwing it in the backseat of the car or truck, you have to make sure it's always level. If it's left on top of a jacket or allowed to tip, it will begin to malfunction and not recover for hours. If it is lower than 45 degrees outside and you leave it in your vehicle, it will malfunction and not work for hours, if not days. When it does malfunction, lights start blinking in all sorts of patterns and it stays that way indefinitely. There is no master reset. Even the power button won't make it stop or turn off. The only way to get it to stop is to totally remove the battery. Then, usually when you replace the battery and turn it back on, it starts to malfunction AGAIN! Then you try everything you can think of, including changing ink (which you know the ink is still good) and it usually still doesn't stop. Somehow, after hours of trying different stuff it will just start to work magically. No rhyme or reason to why. Then it may work again for days or months with no problems. But right when you need it most, it will **** out on you again and start the malfunctioning process all over again. Then you'll remember why you hate this printer so much.
Only problem is there is no other battery operated blu-tooth printer on the market. So if you're going to get one of these, don't get the Deskjet 460. Get one of their newer models. I am taking a jackhammer mine today and buying the newer version of this printer. Hopefully, less problems with that one, but I am not holding my breath. BUY THE INSURANCE ON THIS ONE! You'll need it!!!!!
