Pros Wireless, easily connects to your network.
Cons In Mac OSX, it installs 8 applications along with 3 "device utilities" which are a total of 11 apps. Why??? The worst part is It never feeds paper!!! Further it comes with almost no ink.
Summary The worst part of this printer is that I have to hit the "feed paper" button on the printer about 3-4 times before it grabs a sheet of paper. Pretty much every time I print, I get about 3 errors of "no paper", even though there's a full stack of paper in the tray that is loaded properly. It pretty much defeats the whole idea of wireless printing if I have to go to the printer and hit "paper feed" button 3-4 times every time I print.
The printer comes with SO LITTLE INK. With a week you start getting non-stop low ink messages even though the printer is printing fine. You can not disable these messages. You quickly realize, all this printer is is a plastic box and 11 applications to get you to buy more HP ink.
Whenever this printer turns out, about 20 parts inside move around and make noises for about 5 minutes. When you turn it off, all sorts of parts are moving around for no reason. It really makes you wonder why there are so many moving parts and loud noises. It's borderline kinda funny, until you realize that something with this many moving parts is bound to break soon.
Also, it PRINTS INCREDIBLY SLOW. I am not sure what or how HP arrives at its estimates on number of papes printed per minute. But printing 11 pages from a PDF document takes approximately 12-15 minutes. No joke. I think their test pages must include nothing but blank spaces.
I still don't get why HP feels the need to bundle 11 Apps with this printer. Oh wait, it's to get you to buy more ink.
I've been working in software for last 15 years. I have a computer engineering degree. This is probably my 6th or 7th printer. I would rank this as the worst printer I've ever owned. I would gladly trade my printer I had from 1994 for this one. No joke. There is no significant increase in functionality besides wireless printing which has been rendered moot due to the fact you have to hit the "paper feed" button 3-4 times every time you print.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER. HORRIBLE PRINTER!!!
Cons Too many to list really.
Summary I have spent eight years helping consumers and small business owners with there SOHO needs. HP printers are junk, by design. These are engineered to be obsolete and the build quality is laughable. Buy an Epson, make a potato stamp, fingerpaint, whatever...just stay away from these printers!!
Pros We liked the easy setup. We liked the borderless printing. We liked the quality of print. We liked how fast it printed after it cycled through warm up. It was easy to network.
Cons We hate the fact that we had to hit a reset button nearly every print job. Add Paper always flashing. We could not find the optional duplex unit ANYWHERE. We hate the 5 minute warm up time before it ever printed a single page.
Summary Too many little annoyances. Small print jobs take a minimum of 5 minutes.
Pros Absolutely none!!!
Need to clean/align cartridges weekly
Summary Don't waste your money on this product
"It is junk."on by vernay3
Pros Prints well when it works.
Cons I concur with the majority of reviews found here. The printer is slow, noisy and shakes the whole table as it prints. It won't print envelopes from Word 2003 (and yes, I have been through all of HP's suggested troubleshooting).
Summary I bought this printer to replace HP Businessjet Officejet that I had for nearly ten years that worked flawlessly, and efficiently (big, individual cartridges that lasted forever!) . It had reached the end of it's life, and HP was discontinuing support for it (no more cartridges). I tried to buy a HP Inkjet in the the same price point, but apparently HP no longer makes such a model.The ink cartridges are small, expensive and only partially full, unless you buy the XL's which are even more expensive. It seems that HP has stooped to playing the cheap printer, expensive ink game like its competitors. I will replace this printer when the ink runs out.
