I bought this printer purely for its A3 printing capability, so the scanner (doubles as a fax) was a bonus. i bought it to replace my HP Officejet K7100, which is a superb machine, but it uses a tri colour cart and my particular printing needs mean that I heavily use yellow, followed by half as much blue and hardly any red, so I needed a single cart machine.

The HP Officejet 7500A seems like a good replacement and ink use looks to be good value. You get the small carts with the machine, which get you up and running, but you really need the XL carts for economy of scale - especially the black as the XL is three times bigger than the standard black.

Print quality is vey good, blacks are pin sharp and do not show feathering. I print out maps onto matt inkjet paper and they result in a really smooth texture, vibrant and no sign at all of any banding or other artifact.

When you select inkjet papers, the machine is slower and puts down more ink (as do all machines I own) but when I used the same graphic onto white inkjet self adhesive lables and used just the plain paper setting, the printer just churned them out and the print quality was as good as when I had used the inkjet paper setting.

The down side of this machine compared to my K7100 is that it does not have a command for booklet printing (or duplex). You can get around this by having the printer do 2 A4's onto an A3 and then manually flip the paper back into the tray and print the reverse side - so on a 12 page booklet, I select it to print pages 12 and 1 (in that order) and then put the paper back in again on the flip side and tell it to print pages 2 and 11 etc etc. it s more time consuming but it is an effective workaround.

I purchased this printer in March 2011. The printer was forever making noices to align the cartridges etc. Also had frequent paper jams and last week the printhead failed. I followed instructions to clean the printhead and replaced all the ink cartridges. Printer then worked for about 10 pages and then printhead failed and ink leaked from all of the cartridges. I have always purchased hp as they used to be a solid reliable brand. This is no longer the case. I have now replaced it with an Epson printer. Unfortunately I have just wasted money on new hp cartidges.

Purchased from Amazon and printed less than 50 sheets and suffered from problem where printer indicates a paper jam but no such thing. Searched on web and found it was a common problem with faulty sensors. My fault for not searching before.

Service from Amazon excellent. Replacement printer received, printed less than 10 sheets and same problem.

Have given up and returned to Amazon.

PROs

A3 prints were nice when it worked.
ADF very reliable

CONs

Unreliable
Drivers for Mac 10.6 flaky. Took an awful long time to print via wifi. Also should provide an auto-booklet function for printing.

Summary

When something appears to be of such value as this printer purports to be, and for so little money, then I should have realised there would be problems. I recommend you do as I am now and look elsewhere.

I bought this printer as I needed an A3 printer for CAD drawing plus occasional photos, the scanner and copier just as a welcome bonus at this price.

Very easy to set up, no problems, linked to the wireless network straight away.

The problems started when I tried to print, very slow to start the process, timed at over 25 minutes at its worst. Sometimes it would start immediately, but not very often. Frequently dropped the wireless connection and would only connect if I used the printer utility program.

From the outset, printing at A3 has never been satisfactory. It will not recognise the A3 size in my CAD program. The maximum area I have been able to print is 410x285! A4 prints are fine.

Regrettably, it looks like this is not the printer for me and I have reluctantly sent it back and am now looking again for a suitable A3 printer.

I was really excited about buying this printer. The details on the website said it scanned up to A3 as well as printing A3, however on arrival it clearly was an A4 scanner on an A3 printer. The details on the page I selected the printer from didn't specify that it was an A4 scanner at all. I returned the printer and bought a Brother MFCJ610DW instead which has both A3 scanning and A3 printing for a similar price, and I'm so far very pleased with this.

We are now on our THIRD (yes third) replacement HP7500A. Between software issues and the now endemic HP paper jam 'ghost', we have practically torn out all our hair! We have six HP printers in the office and the last four purchased (7500A, 8500, CP2025, 8500A) have all had issues with either software incompatibility or non existent paper jams which we have wasted hours fixing. Another frustration is that some of the software that comes with their printers doesn't install properly and HP (on the rare occasions they actually have an answer to a customer issue)recommend downloading patched software from their website.

What this boils down sadly to is that HP is no longer a reliable printer (this model is possibly the worst in the range for trouble), their quality control is awful, customer service sound exasperated when they answer the phone. Worst of all they deny these is any widespread issue. Just google any HP issue and there are thousands of complaints - HP pretend the complaints exist!

I'm sure there are people who have bought a 7500A and got a good one. We have had three lousy ones that have driven us to the edge of madness and wasted hundreds of man hours. You pay your money and take your choice (or risk) in this case.
