I have this s model, can’t remember how long I have had it but I bought it brand new at Wal-Mart for about that same price.
Yes, it’s a good all in one printer/copier/scanner but it likes to lose its wireless connection and I have to go through the set-up with wires and cables all over again. I would just leave it hooked up via the USB port instead of wireless except that it can only be used by one computer without exchanging the cables.
If you only want to use it with one computer and not use the wireless capabilities, and you aren’t afraid of Woot and remanufactured products, go for it.
Bought this when it was offered a few months ago. VERY basic, one-page picture instructions (no manual, no troubleshooting instructions). Wouldn’t work. Finally figured out that one of the ink cartridges sent with it was the wrong model. Had to go out and buy the correct one (for twice what the printer cost). Works fine.
I had a similar problem with another HP officejet. I connected it to one PC on my network via USB, then setup windows sharing; this makes it available to all other devices on the network, but the PC it’s hard-wired to must remain powered on. If you have windows 7, just google “printer sharing”
3 stars on pcworld review. Comments were horrible. http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2426098,00.asp
I have this printer on my wife’s computer,and had worked well for a cheap printer.This printer also has [fax]but it does not say it in the comments.The fax stopped working about a month ago.
Not worth it - even if it’s free.
Sucks ink like a thirsty sailor, for one thing (and HP genius puts all colors in one cart: use up the yellow, and you have to throw out the cyan and magenta.) Worse that than, it’s forever losing connection with your computer. Every time I print to this freaking thing, it’s 30 minutes of putzing around with the setup software. I’d consider it useful only as a wired (USB) printer - I’ll probably buy myself a 20-foot cable when the aggravation level gets high enough.
HP ePrint + AirPrint capabilities are what keep me sane and productive at the end of the day. Considering the price of ink alone, this printer is most certainly “worth it”. IMO, saying that it is not even worth it if the product was free is a clever way of saying you don’t know how to use a printer. I was about to buy some ink cartridges for a Canon printer however I am just going to buy two of these printers instead. Not a fan of needing an assistant just to keep track of which Canon PIXMA cartridges I need or don’t need - let’s keep it simple. I haven’t installed printer software since parallel ports were in use and I was still running a Microsoft OS.
Under “Features” it states:
Note: Printers come with FULL OEM Ink Cartridges and will arrive in brown (non-retail) packaging
Under “Specs” it states:
Note: Printers come with starter inks which should support approximately 80 pages.
Which is it???
Not happy with product
Yeah, it’s really hard clicking on that “Print” command. Can’t imagine how that makes the software say “Printer cannot be found” when it was found the last time I printed. Must be all in the wrist or something - I guess my 35 years of using PCs just isn’t enough.
It must be nice to know you’re so f’ing talented.
Mine came with HP-refilled carts (the printer notices this, and lets you know when you install them.) The software reported both color and black carts to be fully loaded. I think the 80-page starter carts would only come with a new printer - the “specs” you cite are probably the original printer specs.
