Pros quick prints, reliable performance, excellent photo quality
Cons noisy, a lot of internal switching and grinding activity going on
Summary I don't mind the noise and don't care about "connectivity", it's just me and my PC, printer and scanner. This printer ejects high quality text pages awfully fast and has never jammed or otherwise given me any problems. I used it for a while only for text, a little afraid to see the photo quality. (I had a much "better" more expensive HP photo printer before, which broke down, and this printer was intended as a interim printer until such time as I decided on another high.-qualty photo printer.) Guess what: the photo I finally printed, a his res portrait which I printed in color, black and white, and sepia, came out beautifuly, both on reg. paper and heavier photo-matt paper. Absolutely as good as I was used to getting on the previous $400 printer (you can chose Max, DPI), but even at "normal" setting the pictures come out quite well. I may not buy another printer until I am ready to shell out a lot more for an 11 x 17 format printer.
Pros It dosn't smell so bad for it being such a piace of crap!
Cons Piece of junk!!! You have to fight to make it print. HP sends you updates all the time and they kill the printer. HP support finally told me to stop using any HP updates. The machine makes noise for 3-4 mins before and after printing. I think it is cleani
Summary Save yourself the hassle. If you really want to buy HP, Throw $60 in the trash then buy another brand. You will be happier!!!
Pros - It prints
- It can print double-sided (if you get the wireless one)
Cons - Too much noise
- It looks like an earthquake, shaking around the whole table
- Color quality is horrible. Mine just refuses to print the color pink, and all other colors come out fuzzy.
- Ink is very expensive, and hard to install
Summary Horrible printer. Very disappointed. I needed to use it for my school project, but the picture couldn't be worse. Trust me. I printed the same picture... 7 times.
I recently had a cheap Canon i80, and that cheap-o was better than this. That one actually printed the colors I wanted. Very mad at HP.
Pros It makes good enough copies.
Cons It just makes entirely too much noise! It prints a page in a matter of seconds, yet makes obnoxious noises for at least a minute. Can't stand it. Can't return it, might just have to destroy it. It's worth the cost of $49 for that satisfaction.
Summary Don't buy this printer unless you like noise or plan on putting it in someone elses office.
Pros Expensive cartridges, lowest amount of ink, even on fast draft you get maybe 100 tops pages, very far from HP statements. Their software always was and is a nightmare, the network installation a disaster. HP known for bugs including remote exploits.
Cons The printer is cheap. The quality of the printed files is very good. BUT network install requires buggy software, you must be crazy using it for business. Refill of the cartridges is very difficult thanks to HP greedy that install a chip counting pag
Summary I would never ever recommend this printer to anybody. It is one of the ********* printer I ever had the chance to use. HP software is mandatory for network install which makes everything collapse as I would never trust HP with their software. False statements on the box making you believe it is "better than a laser printer, better quality and print more". This is not only a lie, which I knew it from the beginning, but a huge lie, because I never thought that I will print 100 pages on fast draft and had to pay 31$ for a new cartridge! The cost per page is huge compare with other printers at the same price, especially from other brands. Also HP it's very very greedy - they will explain they do this to protect you and your printer, which it's bulshit, like I am telling you that if you have a fountain pen from this company you should always buy ink from it for the rest of your life at huge prices. They put a damn chip and it will stop printing after a number of prints even if the cartridge have ink. It can be tricked (check tutorials and videos on youtube), but you'll have to buy at least another cartridge. The design of the cartridge is very shaddy. All these cartridges you buy are kind of pseudo-cartridges, because they all enter in the slots of an unique cartridge container where it;s the head. (the head it's not on the cartridge). This obviously will diminish the life of the printer because instead of throwing away the cartridge that comes with the head on it, now you will have to use several ink cartridges with the container-cartridge that has the head. I am wondering when this head is gone, what can be done? Very greedy this HP guys... They design it to take as much as they can from your pocket. Avoid this printer at all costs!
