Very robust printer, easy to set up and use, great buy!, 4 Aug. 2014
This is an excellent, robust printer which looks and feels very well-made - worth paying a little bit extra for a really professional home-office machine. Early days for me, but so far so good. Everything functions well, print quality is superb, machine is relatively quiet with no vibration on the desk. It's pretty big, so not for basic home use...but if you're working from home, then I would say this is the standout choice for around the £200.00 mark. I read lots of reviews before buying and am very glad I settled on this one.
Set-up is very easy and the control panel display is intuitive. I initially had a problem getting my Mac to recognise the printer on the network, but this turned out to be a Mcafee firewall issue & nothing to do with Apple or HP - as soon as I switched the firewall off, my Mac recognised the printer on the network, so just requires a change of security settings. HP support were fantastic and sorted it all for me in a matter of minutes via remote access.
Although the ink is, as ever, pretty expensive - the XL high capacity cartridges look to be very good value with the black cartridge claiming to be good for 2,300 sheets, or less than 1p per page at Amazon ink prices.
