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.Read more ›
Service from Amazon excellent. Replacement printer received, printed less than 10 sheets and same problem.
Have given up and returned to Amazon.
A3 prints were nice when it worked.
ADF very reliable
Drivers for Mac 10.6 flaky. Took an awful long time to print via wifi. Also should provide an auto-booklet function for printing.
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.
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.
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.
