Top Customer Reviews
When I open it, it showed 'Printhead damaged. Contact HP for support'
This machine flies in the face of progress. It needs a good dose of product overhaul like Ford did with its range of cars to get the reliability up.
It is the slowest printer I've ever come across. You press print and it does churning noises (it's very good at doing these) and it says printer preparation. This happens a lot.
Oh and it doesn't print red properly - it comes out as glacial cherrry lipstick colour (so I'm told, ahem)
Also the XL print cartridges hardly last at all and there's a range HP print cartridges with the same numbers that don't fit in this printer (who thought that was a good idea??!! -you can see the outcome of that daftness on Ebay with people reselling cartridges that don't fit)
The paper cartridge is small and the rollers in the printer aren't strong enough to grip the paper and pull it through so you get several seconds of time spent waiting for that part of the printing process to get going. The network connection keeps dropping out so I've had to connect it to the PC with a USB lead to overcome that problem.
The HP scanner is ok having said that - it's probably the best part of the machine, but to be frank, Canon make scanners that outclass HP on every count, so don't bother buying it for that.
In summary, well, there's no beating about the bush. I hate this machine. I loathe it. As one reviewer put, it's ideal for increasing blood presssure and getting you warm out of sheer anger on the winter evenings. In summer, get an electric fan to cool you down as you glare ragingly at the display saying 'Printer Preparation', clunk, clunk
I bought one because I need to print a lot of documents as well as some good quality photos. Unfortunately it keeps shutting itself off after a few minutes and then I have to fiddle around to get it online again. Most of the time I have to unplug it and even then I have to literally hammer on the control panel before it finally decides to start again. Just pressing on the start has no effect.
Printing anything has become a stressful exercise because of how it either refuses to switch on or takes ages to come on line again. There have been occasions that no matter what I do it just does not come back on line and I was unable to print at all.
I need to find the receipt and warranty documents so i can see if i can return it and get a Cannon like I originally planned on getting.
With regards to set-up, you have the choice of setting up using a USB connection, or it is simple to set up using a wireless connection, so long as you have a wireless signal. The total set-up takes less than five minutes which is a lot less than my last printer took to install.
You can print three different paper sizes (A4, A5 and A6) as well as envelopes, the scanner also works well wirelessly.
Overall, the printer is very good. However, I did not purchase from Amazon as, this time, their prices were not competitive at all, so I bought this from another UK based PC/Electrical specialist for just over half the price.

I hate this printer. It's constantly out of ink despite the "Ink Levels" showing it has ink. The cartridges are very expensive and work for only a few sheets. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Amazon Customer
