However, there are limitations:
o You cannot print the bottom half and inch or so of an A3 page (this may not be a Linux driver problem.)
o 1200dpi colour printing comes out all smudgy. However 600dpi works ok with the HPIJS driver. This is claimed to have been fixed in Fedora Core 6/7, but I haven't verified it personally yet.
Colours are bright and text is clear at all resolutions.
All in all for does what is says on the tin.
This printer is best for home users who want to print out large documents at average quality.
Beware!!! This printer is also prone to the odd paper jam when using standard plain paper.
The manual feed through is good if you need it, but I found that after a few full scale prints it started to crease the paper slightly underneath. This shouldn't matter for standard prints, but makes all the difference when re-producing artwork.
I'm going to use this as a standard printer and invest in a more expensive model for my quality work. It will be worth the extra money in the end. Also the cost of HP replacement cartridges is way too much. It is worth considering these costs before investing in a new printer.
Altogether this printer is fine if you want average results, but I'd advise you to purchase someting more mid to top range if you want better quality prints. You get what you pay for I guess.
What's wrong with the 1280? It is so inconsistent in being able to print without jamming onto anything but standard stock. Assume you're going to go through 4 sheets of photo paper before one print can be made.
I for one don't expect to nursemaid a printer through every job I require of it, and sadly the 1280 demands it. HP, having had my loyalty for many years (and I have bought a considerable number of HP printers for a variety of businesses), has now had it completely undermined by the 1280. Trust me when I say check out other A3 printers before you even consider this one.
