"Worst ever!"on by some213
Pros The box it came in was well constructed and had nice pictures on it. I give the box 4 stars.
Cons I got about 10 pages out of this printer over the last year. Software has always been an issue on my Mac. Installed the HP update hoping it would fix some of the problems, but somehow the update actually made it so that I can't power down the printer
Summary Worse than the printer is their customer service. They wanted $34.99 just to talk to me about the problems that the HP software update created. Quite a scam, cause a problem with bad software so that you can charge to fix it. Like a mechanic putting sugar in your tank so that he can charge you to replace the engine.
Pros It has three functions at a cheap price...now if only these functions worked.
Cons This printer is NEVER working! It prints slow. It's always claiming a connection problem. For the speed that it will copy my paperwork I could written by hand by that time.
Summary Don't get this printer! Yeah it seems like a good idea at first; it was has 3 functions for under $150. However this is a classic case of you get what you pay for.
Pros Pros? Well, the printer does work sometimes. The scanner/copier works -- at least for now.
Cons It's been nothing but infuriating trouble -- which of course started almost the second after the three-month warranty ran out. It's full of glitches that make you want to tear your hair out. It's beyond horrible.
Summary First it went for months telling me it was out of paper when the tray was full and refused to print. Then it randomly decided there WAS paper and worked for a couple of months.
Next issue, it just wouldn't print -- no explanation. I had about 30 documents stack up in the memory. One day it randomly decided to start working -- when I wasn't even at my desk -- and burned through an entire package of good-quality paper on documents I no longer needed.
Current issue, it randomly gave me the message that there was no color print cartridge (right after I had printed a color page) and refused to print anything, even in black and white (except for a color test page, which it prints just fine).
On top of all that, it's never been able to obey the command to print more than one page at at time. So if you want to print 80 copies of something, you have to hit the print command 80 times, one by one by one.
There are times I'd swear the thing is demon-possessed. It would be comical if it didn't involve my livelihood.
It's ruined me on HP -- I'll never buy another of its products.
Pros works fine the first week.
Cons after first week only printer works and now under windows 7 and using latest drivers the scanner no longer works on a newly installed OS.
Summary Do not waste your money on this! Avoid at all costs.
No amount of drive scrubbing and so forth will not work.
Tried on many pc's and kept saying USB not connected.
We should get a refuned on this trash

Pros Cheap, but for a reason..
Cons Broke down after 2 months. Refuses to accept original HP cartridges. Jams constantly. Will avoid all HP writers in the future
