Second review

I bought the HP Office Jet pro and it didn't perform properly and had to return it after 3 days. The second printer works well and does all it promises.
It has many features and prints nicely; love the huge capacity ink cartriges, makes printing affordable. would recommend this printer.

Very good printer

Pros: good product at a reasonable price
I have purchased many printers for home and where I work also, and got to say that all of the HP printers have worked very good. this printer really does a good job and to this day has given me no reason to change to another brand. At work we are always trying other brands, and got to say that HP is one of the better brands for most printing needs.

Need a Printer ? This one is AWSOME

I am a tecky and do tons of printing. I used to have the HP 7310
up until it just passed on to printer heaven, this one lasted well over 9 years !!! I had been researching for a new printer and desided to stay with the HP Brand. although the 7310 was a huge ink hog and not cheap. Now I have this model "I Love It" for me this was way too easy for the whole setup process, The fax and wireless setup was a breez ! One word of advise no matter what printer you choose If you dont know much about printers and it features Read the Manuals if not go online and research the problem As too the type of Paper to use? Dont get cheap paper like multipurpose that jams the feeders.

Once Again Disappointed with HP

Pros: prints are good quality
Cons: scanner software is very poor
This is the second, and hopefully last, HP printer that I have purchased. I continually have trouble with the scanning feature. If I print something, then immediately insert that page into the scanner, I do not understand how the scanner won’t communicate with my PC. It then tries to reinstall the printer to my laptop. Also, the scanning software that comes with the printer is very cumbersome and not user friendly. Brother printers run with PaperPort software that is MUCH superior.
Also, if the paper size is set to “Automatic” when you copy something, why do I have to go in the menu and specify legal paper? When copying legal to legal, it stops at the 11” unless to specify otherwise.
I never experienced these problems with the Brother printer I used to have. I guess twice burned will teach me a lesson.

OK if you want lots of yellow

Pros: scans well
Cons: colors are not true
Gotta take it back. I've owned lots of HP printers - my last one died and had to be replaced - while I thought it would be nice to have an all-in-one, I must say I'm not pleased. It does scan well, but beware when printing photos or anything that requires precise color. Ivory comes out yellow - no matter what you do. After exhausting all "fixes" the HP tech has to offer - I've come to the conclusion this printer has a quirk that can't be fixed. And you cannot configure duplex printing to work manually.

Big Disappointment

Pros: wireless finds and connects easily to the router
Cons: paper feeder does not work, document feeder does not work
I have returned 3 of these printers because either the document feeder and or the paper feeder didn't work.
Has nice features and the setup was easy but HP needs to develop better paper handling mechanisms.
