1 out of 5 eggsSingle worst piece of electronics I've ever owned.

Pros: It looks nice, I guess.

Cons: It is downright obstinate.

The ink, as other reviews have detailed, is a nightmare. I was eventually able to take a multi-meter to a cartridge and figure out how to rig empty ones that will fool the printer into thinking it still has color ink. It will now begrudgingly do me the courtesy of printing a black-and-white document every now and then, probably jams about one in four times.

That is, of course, after it has spent several minutes performing self-checks which it will impolitely inform you may not be terminated if you attempt to. (I take immense pleasure in ripping its plug from the wall at this point.)

Other Thoughts: It is almost worth it for the amusement of how bad of a product it is. Virtually nothing on it works as it should, the paper/envelope loading, scanning, wifi, auto-feed; all have their issues.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy

Pros: Do not buy this, it is my nightmare now. It wastes inks and inks cost a lot of your money, it needs color inks even you only print black&white. The printer will not print black&white if color ink is empty. Also color inks go empty every2-3 months even you never use it. Buying the printer means you go ink store every 2-3 months and cost you $70 or more

Cons: You got to have a lot money and times

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid - Get Something Else

Pros: It's a nice looking unit, and is from HP. It's wireless, and has a document feeder.

Cons: This is the worst printer I've ever owned.

1.> When it prints, even just as 'black and white', it uses up ink from all the cartridges at the same time. You never just replace the black cartridge; you must replace them all. (Google the unit, and you'll find a posting on HP's forums, from an employee, about this issue.)

2.> The printer takes forever to start up; at least 3 minutes when you first try to print something as the unit wakes up.

3.> Changing the cartridges is very easy, but the unit takes approximately 15 minutes to recalibrate after inserting new cartridges. If the unit hasn't been used in a little while, it also needs to recalibrate; this can also take an unreasonably long amount of time. It makes quickly printing something (directions, as you run out the door) impossible.

4.> The unit occasionally loses its WiFi connection/settings.

5.> Scanning quite often pulls in more than 1 sheet.

Other Thoughts: I would never recommend this unit to anyone, and would suggest that you look elsewhere.

1 out of 5 eggsWorthless

Pros: Wi-fi enabled.

Cons: Constant paper jams. Literally every page printed either jams, or fails to spool.

Overpriced ink.

1 out of 5 eggsPoor Design

Pros: It is just another printer

Cons: Poor design,To print an envelope you must first remove the paper from the paper tray and place envelope in paper tray, slide the width guides next to the envelope to make sure the envelope is in the center of the tray, then you can print envelope. Next you will need to slide the guides back out to replace your printer paper and hope you do not have many envelopes to do in a days’ time.
I will request a RA from Newegg.

Other Thoughts: I hate to put other thoughts here as someone under the age of 21 might read this page.

4 out of 5 eggsNot competitively priced at this writing

Pros: Wi-fi, touch screen, excellent menu, cloud printing, print/fax/scan all in one, small foot print

Cons: No wired network support, multiple in cartridges which is a pro or con depending on how much use it gets, priced a little high for it's features

Other Thoughts: It's OK for the price, but I've seen it priced a lot less so watch for sales. This unit should be priced under $100 to make it competitive for the features it offers.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Chews thru ink like there is no tomorrow. Uses the color cartridges even when set to print in black ink only. Can't print when the color cartridges are empty which happens at an alarming rate. On a per page basis is the most expensive printer I have ever owned.

Other Thoughts: Would give it negative stars if possible.

2 out of 5 eggsa resounding "meh..."

Pros: Price
Ease of setup
Auto-feed scanner and copier

Cons: No dual sided printing dialogue. You need to figure it out manually.

If you do not print with it everyday, you'll need to clean the print heads A LOT which is a waste of ink and paper.

4 out of 5 eggsNot as bad as some think.

Pros: Average quality all-in-one printer. Great for small office, or busy home. Network options, so it can be used with multiple devices. Decent quality printing ability. This is not meant for heavy duty use. But it is meant for daily/weekly use. Letting it sit for a month at a time with nothing to do is not good for these printers. Ink consumption is average, and not bad if set correctly.

Overall, these aren't that bad a printer. Not as good as older models of HP, but that can be said of many brands. I sell several HP printers a year. Might have 1 bad out of the whole year on the average, though I had 2 last year. The 4 out of 5 eggs reflects the overall quality of this particular printer and my faith in its reliability and performance. Will continue to buy them for now.

Cons: CD Installation. Yes it checks for updated software and may go that route, but you can tell it not to and it will install from the CD. You may want to customize the install, if you are wanting to minimize the amount of extra stuff that can get installed on the system. You also might want to check what it communicates to HP. I usually disable most if not all those things. Updates for printers come out very rarely. It does not need to check every day for an update.

Not the best quality control. I do get the occasional model that has an issue and needs replaced. Price reflects this somewhat in my opinion.

HP tech support. I have had to call them about a couple different models of printers the past couple of years. Awful is being nice. Either they are hard to understand, or will not work outside of the box. (have to stick to their script) Very frustrating, especially from a tech view point. (usually I have already tried all the simple stuff) However their upper level CS reps are very nice from Toronto, once you get to them. Unfortunately I have too many times.

Other Thoughts: Ink consumption/usage: When I install these printers and other similar models, I always set the print quality to draft for default print options. Why? Uses less ink. You can even go farther and customize the ink volume and make the printer use even less. But you can still choose a higher quality when you need it.
Yes the black cannot print by itself. Big deal. If you learn to simply keep an extra ink tank on hand for when you run out, its easily fixable. This has been going on for a while now with HP printers. Not everyone has a problem with it.

Speaking of ink. Use the XL cartridges. They can have up to 3 times the amount of ink for less than 2 times the price. Be sure to always use the install cartridges that come with these printers during initial setup, or you could have problems.

Networking:

Couple of tips:

1: Use a static assigned IP address. I typically will allow the unit to obtain an address, and if the IP last digit is more than 100, I set it to like 50. If its less than 100, I set it to 150. This will ensure a stable connection for your devices. This also assumes a typical home/small business network environment. Your particular network setup may differ.

Or

2: Reserve the IP address (once its assigned) in the routing device (router or ISP router/modem unit if possible) This basically makes the router only give that IP to that device, no matter what order of device request.
The HP software is suppose to auto update the IP if it changes, but it doesn't always do this correctly nor work all the time, so setting the address so it can't change usually works better for most typical setups. If you are not sure, get with someone that can work with networking. If it is vital to have a reliable connection to your printer, use a USB cable if possible. That way it won't rely on networks to operate (routers can goof up or get stuck) but you can still have it networked for other devices to use as needed.

Always try to update the printer when you first get it setup. You can do this right from the touch screen, providing you are using it on a network install. If you are using this via USB only, then don't bother with this step.

Hope it all helps.
