Pros Cost of replacement ink at $5 for black. This even beats refilling yourself!!!
5 Year warranty with the 800 number listed on the printer.
Great customer Service. I called, they answered and they were very responsive.
I will never go back to HP.
Cons none really.
Summary If you really want the best bang for the buck, look no further. With the price of ink so low, and a five year support, with a company that answers the phone, go with this.
Pros Fairly easy installation on home network. Functions work as advertised. Good print quality for an AIO, I'm not printing pictures. The wireless installation was fairly easy. I have 1 desktop, 3 PC laptops & 3 MAC laptops, all use this printer.
Cons The software could have been a little easier given that I had such a wide array of installation needs and a home network. It took a little trial & error but it's up and running on the network and all computers.
Summary After 1 day I'm very impressed. I have a secure home network, wired and wireless and the installation on all my computers was fairly easy, though not effortless (even though I think it should have been effortless). The installation on the variety of devices wasn't as straight forward as it should have been. Starting on the USB connected computer might have been the issue, once I got that figured out, then installing the printer on the wireless connection for all other computers took a little more figuring out, then there was a slight difference between the PC and Mac's...big surprise. Get my point...
I've heard some complaints about the noise of the printer, I don't seem to notice it and it's literally next to me under my desk (maybe that's why). Others mentioned it was slow, well, it's not lightening fast but it's manageable so I won't ding them for that.
This replaced an HP6110 (P.O.S) & an HP print server also a P.O.S. and is far, far easier to use than the HP. However, the software installation is huge...300MB..really? I think it's overkill. It does seem to function better than the similar HP software which was terrible, someone tell HP to outsource software, theirs is the worst I've ever used. Print quality on documents/presentations seems very good, or at least good enough. I don't print pictures so I can't comment on their quality. I'm stunned by the price of the black XL print cartridge $4.99, yes, < $5.00 and they say it'll last 400 print jobs, I guess time will tell. If their ink is that much cheaper than HP, then I'll use this for a long time. My HP 6110 replaced my HP G95 which also was a P.O.S, those 2 printers both broke (wouldn't print) in 4 years. I mean, 2 hours on the phone with tech support and I was told to ship it to the repair center! Needless to say I bought a different printer...the 3rd time.
I gave it 4 of 5 stars because the software was too big and a little trickier than it should be. Overall, Lexmark has my business for now, if I need another printer, I'm buying a Lexmark.
Pros Efficient, effective, low-ink cost, printer speed very acceptable for a $250 printer, scanning is efficient and easy to use
Cons automatic change from Black print ($5) when low to grayscale (use color ink at $50 for magneta/cyan/yellow). Scanning quality is not very good. Don't buy warranty from office depot, they do not replace your printer as promised
Summary I checked it out on CNET and received very good review, so I went and bought 2 for my business. One printer went through thousand and thousand of pages on daily basis. Works beautifully. However, wireless connection get a bit iffy, so we send it back to Office Depot for Warranty service. They send us a gift card but did not replace the printer or return after fixing. They are now selling the printer at $399. I am out of $150. Don't buy warranty from Office Depot, they do not replace your printer as promised
Pros It has energy saver. It does print normal paper sheets rather quickly. The Ink is not expensive.
Cons It wont load multiple page faxes, we are on our second printer and its the same problem. We have to manually load each page. I cannot get it to print an envelope! Just says there is no paper.
Summary The fact it has two paper trays, I thought I could use the top paper tray for white paper and the bottom for yellow paper and have it print one white and one yellow, like a sales receipt off the same print job. Nope! The fact that it has two paper trays is now useless for us. Each print job a rather large pop-up screen appears on the bottom right corner of the computer. This is rather annoying when you are printing a lot but also trying to use your computer for other tasks at the same time. I tried printing an envelope today, and failed. It would not load the enveleope. It kept saying the paper tray was empty, or there was a jam. Trust me, there was paper and no jam. Also, we are on our second pritner and neither would load the paper for a multiple page fax. I now am having to indivudually scan each page. Overall, not happy at all with this printer.
Pros Two paper trays (but you have to link them), cheap cartridges
Cons Slow, takes a long time to respond to print commands, color cartridges run out very fast, large footprint.
Summary No better a printer than my old HP C5280. Every time I send a print command it takes 30+ seconds grinding and talking to itself before it does anything. One printhead has gone bad (replaced by Lexmark free, thanks) and printer was down for a week. The software is not very intuitive and the printer is slow, slow, slow. We often have to issue repeated commands to print anything - and this is from a Windows 7 64-bit machine that's relatively new and quick. I would NOT buy another.
