"Works Great!"on by mrqus44
Pros the unit is small and work well with Most operating systems! print very clear! NICE untit
Cons I guess it does not work with Macs (so what) Mac makes things only to be used on there Things! So have Mac put out a printer and pay $1000 + for it !! but the real complaint I have with it the toner is expensive!
Summary It work really good with my system! I have had no Jams or other problems so I think I would give it a favorable review ! I like it!
Pros Good Color print quality
Long Toner Life
Cons Noisy intermittent calibration cycles
Premature empty indication on toner cartridges
Summary Bought this printer 12 months ago and still using the original toner cartridges. Have printed an approximate 7 reams of paper in that time period. I went to toner override after the original black cartridge ran out about two months ago - still printing strong. Color Cartridges show about 40% full yet. Printer is used in a home setting so not big print jobs, just regular home use. Printer has never once jammed. Prints heavy stock, can print envelopes by using regular tray and moving guides to fit envelope. For me, this has been far more convenient, and probably cheaper than an inkjet printer.
Pros Awesome value, started toner DOES last quite a bit, 100 ages and still going. :)
Quite and EASy to set up in windows
Cons Refill can be expensive, and Box was BIG lol but still good buy
Summary I would buy another in a heart beat. I got it on Sale and can not complain at all. Still faster than my old inkjet.
Pros It prints, well, printed in color.
Cons Print options are rendered useless because HP does not keep up with Mac updates.
HP holds you hostage on ink (can't print in black when color runs out). This well-known HP scam is no surprise here, but it is still incredibly annoying.
Summary 1) I could knit a sweater in the time it takes to print a document. For certain PDFs, two sweaters. One for me, one for my pooch.
2) MAJOR DOWNER: Like all printers, they give you starter cartridges (like 10% full). I quickly replaced the black ink ($70). A couple of months later, the color ink runs out (I maybe have printed 3-4 color things), THUS RENDERING MACHINE INCAPABLE OF PRINTING IN BLACK. HP now has you held hostage until you purchase new color toners. All three.
3) Said color toner runs nearly $270. The irony being that I could buy the same printer for $200 today at Office Max.
4) Office Max's "warranty" and "service" do not cover HP's inability to keep up with Mac updates. This rendered the machine useless after about a month of me having it.
5) Go on Craiglist, find an old laser black-white laser printer and avoid HP printers like the plague.
Pros It prints color docs quickly
Cons -Horrible with graphics
-Locks up all the time
-prints one copy and then freezes
-Doesn't network well
-Expensive to replace ink
Summary We purchased this with the purpose of using for printing brochures, flyers, programs, newsletters. It freezes up on us everytime after maybe printing one page, it does not handle photos well or graphics. It has been one of the most frustrating printers I have ever used. We were mislead by the Staple's (I know we should have known better) review and now have to look elsewhere for a printer that meets our needs. Don't buy this if you need to print graphics!!!!
