Pros A reasonably compact all in one printer
Poor telephone service from HP.
Summary I have owned 4 different HP printers, and each one lasts less time than the last one. This machine we bought refurbished from HP with the assurance that it was a quality machine. Hah! It lasted just more than the one year warranty, at which point the printer began draining the contents of the ink tanks into the body of teh machine and left us an error message "align print cartridge." Finally it got to the point that we could print about 50 pages before it drained another tank. We're switching to Canon from here on out
Pros Might work as a door stop.
Cons SLOW beyond belief
Summary Replaced an older HP all in one printer/fax/copier. The older model must have been 10 times faster. Buy this piece of junk if you don't mind taking half a day to make a copy.

"Utter Garbage!"on by mikewelch7
Pros Many features. Handles many forms of memory. Low cost.
Cons HP makes this printer non-operational upon the expiry of your ink cartridges. This relates to all printer capabilities, even those not requiring ink.
Summary Absolute garbage. All of the good features built into this low cost printer become entirely non-operational if the unit detects that your ink cartridge has 'expired' in HP's mind. As HP makes its profit from the sale of ink cartridges, they supply units with low ink, then emphasize quick utilization of ink in the unit. They then ensure that the machine will shut down entirely if the cartridge is 'expired.' This is well documented on the Internet.
HP's corporate greed trumps all other considerations: customer sat, the global environment, good product design. I will never purchase another printer from their organization.
I bought this unit in July, 2009. Three months later, it is entirely non operational as HP scuttled the device due to an ink cartridge I bought as a replacement. HP is now promising to ship me another unit as they deem this a 'hardware issue.' It is clear when one considers how HP makes profit on their printer lines that they've engineered this flaw into the unit to ensure people buy ink sourced from HP as often as possible.
What HP's management does not consider is the absolute scorched earth nature of this policy with regards to their customers. Ever sensibility of mine is offended when I consider a company making a rather sizable piece of hardware non functional due to the ink cartridge being 'out of date.' Imagine if cars were built with the same considerations? What a landfill disaster HP is building through their economics. Manufacturing cheap products with slave labor in China, ship them to the US and other major markets, then make them non operational if the ink cartridge isn't up to spec? The world would be a better place without such corporations.
