Pros Text quality was very good; paper feed was fine; printer was fast.
Cons Printout problems with HP Vivera ink overshadow good qualities.
Summary I recently purchased and returned this printer because of printout problems with HP Vivera ink. The ink from an all-text printout came off onto my hands when handling and folding the printout and the printed text could slightly smudge.
To try to overcome this problem, I used both regular copy paper and HP Color Inkjet Paper at various printer settings and allowed each printout to dry for about 15 - 20 minutes or more but nothing worked.
For the short time I had this printer, the text quality was very good, the paper feed was fine and the printer was fast but the ink problem I was experiencing was not acceptable.
Pros Text quality was very good and the printer is very fast. Great photo quality after ink adjustment.
Cons Ink from photo paper can came off on your hands.
Summary The default photo quality of this printer is very disappointing. The photos are very dull looking and washed out regardless of almost all of the settings. The fix is to increase the ink volume under the properties advance tabs. It seems HP has decided to limit the ink level even for photos to show up a better cost/page figure. The photos are now very vibrant and look fantastic.
Pros Good print quality.
Cons Very, very poor at paper feeding, especially with any envelopes.
Summary Do you print ordinary envelopes? Then beware of this product. . . this is the third dissapointment in a row for HP products for me (laptop, PDA, and now printer) . . . so I will now be avoiding this vendor.
Pros none - honestly none. this thing is junk.
Summary just wasted $50 on ink cartridges - the printer sat idle in the basement for a year because i couldn't get the thing to work, finally tried again and the ink had run dry (the diagnostics said run out). i bought 4 new cartridges but the test page wouldn't print yellow or cyan. i did the clean print head option and it just blew through the ink. $50 gone and i have nothing to show for it. can't even use the stupid thing. terrible terrible product.
Pros Other companies make duplex printers that work
Cons HP still has not corrected the problem and most likely never will
Summary Officejet 6000 and Officejet Pro 8000 - plus a few other HP printers all have the same problem with duplexing
they will change the size of a image example a 5 x 5 will print 5 x 4.75
HP knows about the problem but does not plan on a fix
SOLUTION: buy a different brand duplex printer
