I was stunned and delighted by the speed with which this printer was delivered - well before the expected date. It is also in very good condition. The price was amazingly low - so I guess I shouldn't expect perfection but I have had a couple of niggles with it. It is hit and miss as to whether the paper feeds through properly or jams. I have given it some time and tried many ways of putting the paper in but the problem persists. It is not every time, and quite honestly for the price it is probably worth living with, but it is annoying and in some cases results in quite a waste of paper and ink. The print isn't always sharp. Again this is only on the odd sporadic occasion - but sometimes it comes out quite fuzzy. As with the other niggle, for the price I can live with it. The CD that came with the printer wouldn't work in my PC and I had to find and download the relevant driver from the Internet. Not a huge problem but another little niggle. For £20 it is good value and it also saved me about £100 in ink cartridges as it uses HP301 inks which only work in discontinued models and I had a large supply of these. I haven't even tried the wi fi features yet.

Absolutely useless. I used it a couple of times six month ago and it printed fine. I now needed to use it to print some vouchers 6 months later and it seems the inks aren't working. It used to print fine with just the black cartridge in there. Now it demanded I insert both, even though I only needed to print something black and white. The documents came out in a very faded blue colour even though the text was black. And now the ink seems to have completely depleted.

Could the ink have dried up from not using it for so long? I can't think of anything else

Hi Gavin, Sorry to hear you are experiencing a problem with the print quality. The ink in the cartridge does not dry up, usually, the nozzles get clogged with dried ink from non-use, And then inspect the ink cartridges for any damage, ink buildup, debris, or protective tape on the contacts that might affect the proper functioning of the ink cartridge and the Printhead. Have you tried following the troubleshooting steps:http://hp.care/2on4liu such as cleaning the electrical contacts? If this does not resolve the problem, I would recommend contacting HP Support: http://hp.care/2bjG4nE Note that you will need to provide the Warranty Ends date of the cartridge.I have attached a link which shows where the Warranty Ends Date is located: http://hp.care/2cekmF5

Ink doesn't last 5min, printer slows right down when printing about 12 pages +, the only thing I find useful on this printer now is the wireless scanner hence the one star, it's bulkier than what I expected after looking at the pictures but then I should have looked at the measurements, overall if you need something for one or two pages every now and then, then I suppose this is an ok buget but for anything work related or 10+ pages of printing in one go stay well clear.

This printer has served me really well over the last two years. I've not exactly put a huge workload on it, but for a home-use printer, its great. Quality is acceptable as is speed. The reason I took a star away is the cost of the cartridges; they're not cheap. I've just purchased some third party replacement cartridges so this should go some way to alleviating cost. All in all though, solid printer.

1. Printer doesnt work with the drivers included. After much searching and wasted time I managed to get some functionality using drivers for another HP printer. It now prints PDFs, but not emails.

2. Printer drinks ink. I only print simple documents and use multiple pages/sheet to minimise ink usage. Still costs a fortune.

3. Printer randomly stops during print jobs.

4. Printer randomly prints another, blank, page after each job.

5. After recently installing a new, genuine (and expensive) cartridge, the printer doesnt work at all.

Dont waste your time and money. Go elsewhere.

Hi Amazon Customer, sorry for the disappointing experience you've encountered with Officejet Pro 8710. Thanks for sharing your experience; although it has left you less than satisfied we appreciate your feedback. Based on your description, I understand you're experiencing multiple issues such as software drivers, print quality and print jobs stuck in the queue, I appreciate your efforts to try and resolve the issue. You can go to HP Support to download the most current version of the full feature software for your printer for both Windows and Mac. This ensures your printer has complete functionality:http://hp.care/2qKUWVu The printer cannot print from a computer because a print job is stuck in the Windows/Mac print queue. This stuck print job cannot be canceled or deleted and prevents further print jobs from printing. You can also try following print jobs stuck in print queue:http://hp.care/2qKPhiB and http://hp.care/2qKPjqJ Print quality issue:http://hp.care/2on4liu

For some reason this printer barely works: I rarely print, bought this printer a couple of years ago and sadly errors and failed print jobs are routine

It also guzzles ink somehow

It has made me reconsider buying HP printers at all quite frankly

This is a good enough printer but it doesn't have a USB port & is only fully useable if you have Wi-Fi & download the appropriate driver's.
