I should say first that I didn't buy my printer through Amazon.

I have used HP printers for years. This one rates as the worst I have had. Now, don't get me wrong ... the wireless element works well; the scanner seems to be fine; it prints colour pretty quickly and the ink lasts well. So, what could be wrong? Well, if you are doing any more than basic printing with brand new paper - forget it! The paper feed is non-existent and that affects performance badly. I have been trying to print a double sided Christmas letter. Using the double-sided option resulted in one page being the wrong way round and though there is a delay for ink to dry this was insufficient to avoid smudges and made the whole operation slooooowwww. So, I opted to print one side at a time. When it came to the reverse side, with no guides, the paper jumped everywhere resulting in skewed print and many jams. I have had to feed each sheet in individually ... and that REDUCED the number of jams. In the end, I left my sheets drying under a weigh overnight. That helped, but I still need to feed each page individually and it still jams.

I have also been printing a Christmas card - using the maximum 200gm paper (which, incidentally, I have been using for years with other HP printers). The card has a border ... and once again, the LACK OF PAPER FEED GUIDES has meant that I have had to feed each card in individually though it is extremely hard to time it just right as the printed sheet comes out to cover the paper feed. The colour is good though and the printer coped with this weight of paper which seems to have no bearing on my problems.

Note: edited from 3 stars to 2 - see comment below

So, if you need an occasional print and want to use wireless then fine. If you need to do more serious printing then this probably isn't the printer for you. Personally, I will be looking at other printer manufacturers in future.

Bought this some time ago as printer inks were being discontinued for my old Lexmark. On the upside the print quality is pretty good for photos on even regular quality photo paper. The inks are independently changeable (even the individual colour inks). This was sold as an advantage but actually they all run out more or less the same time - if you end up being frugal and changing say the yellow, then next print the magenta will run out and so on. On the downside the printer is really noisy and spends tens of seconds jiggling around initialising itself whenever you print anything - I have no idea what it's doing. The worst aspect by far though is the paper feeder tray. It frequently fails to pick up paper (especially heavier weight paper like photopaper or card) and you sort of need to force feed it the paper one sheet at a time as it frequently sucks up more than one sheet (if it grips any at all). Really a cheapy product - surprisingly so for HP and not worth the 90 pounds price tag. In future I would shell out 250 and get a budget colour laser that can do the basics e.g. load paper the rate this printer goes through ink it is a better move longterm too.

I have owned plenty of HP printers in the past but this one is without comparison in its inability to perform the most basic printing tasks. I purchased it as a recommended Apple wireless printer but finally had to purchase a USB lead to guarantee at least some printing certainty when i need it. But that said there is a list of problems - Paper feed - poor, wireless - intermittent operation and to cap it all it now it will not print black text. I've done everything recommended - cleaned the print heads (4 times) replaced ink cartridges. But now i've given up and consigned it to the scrap bin. Cannon / Epson here i come.

Full disclosure - I didn't actually buy this from Amazon; I bought it elsewhere.
As other reviewers have pointed out, the paper feed really lets this printer down. I need to do a lot of double-sided printing and this is almost impossible on this printer. Sometimes it grabs two sheets at once, so page 2 is printed on the back of page 3, not page 1 and so on. Sometimes it grabs the first sheet and spits it out without attempting to print on it. Sometimes it sort of fans two sheets out, so it prints half a document on one sheet, and half on the next. This means huge wastage of paper and also of the extremely expensive ink, and also means a waste of time, as I am constantly having to refeed paper and reprint.
The ink is expensive, and gets used up much faster than on my previous HP printer - even though I almost always use the draft setting. It isn't really an economy having separate colour cartridges, as they all get used up at about the same time.
Not all my devices will connect wirelessly to this, although I haven't had many problems getting the pc to connect wirelessly - other gadgets just won't connect.
It's often slow to start printing - for some reason it has to initialise, even though it has been switched on for ages.
I also get, several times an hour, an error message saying that scan to computer has been lost. The function actually seems fine, but the constant error message becomes irritating very quickly.
On the plus side, the print quality is fine.

Value for money and working perfect. paper jam some times but really doesn't matter unless using it for continuous printing purposes. It has very good features and you can print from any part of the world to your printer using HP E-connect technology through internet.
