    Nothing But Problems

    I have been using computers and installing devices since 1984, and I would rate this printer in the top 5% of those that have installation and usage issues. I can't begin to relate ALL the problems I've had, but here are a few, and even this will be long. First, I am installing this using wireless direct, I do not have it connected by a USB cable. When I attempted installing it on my laptop (2017 HP Spectre, Windows 10), HP Support Assistant identified it as the wrong HP Printer. This caused several issues, including downloading the wrong software (some of which is still on my computer!). After two hours I finally got it to identify it as the correct printer and got it printing. For a test page I printed an Adobe generated file containing drawings and text, which I opened in Word 2016. It worked. Then I did some updates, etc., and that file would no longer print. I was able to print a Word File. That burned up day one (6 hours). The next day I installed it on my HP Envy desktop (Windows 8.1). The setup went a little more smoothly, HP Support Assistant at least identified the correct printer on the first try. But I had some of the same issues as day one (not mentioned above), including the setup process hanging up, having to begin all over, losing the network connection, etc. I finally got it to print. That burned up four hours. I turned off the printer. Day three I used the copy function, without turning on the computers, it worked fine. Day 4 I needed to print a pdf document on my desktop. When I tried to change the printer properties (I did not want to use the defaults) I got a protection fault error, and the print window froze up. I had the same experience on my laptop. I had to use taskmaster to shut down Adobe Reader on both computers but cause it was unresponsive. I also had the same experience trying to print an MS Word doc, on both computers, except it Word didn't freeze up. I since discovered that if I don't try to access the properties, documents will print with the default. This is something new, when I originally installed it I had access to the properties in the Print File window so I could change from draft, black and white, etc. Ok, I figured I would go into devices and printers on Windows Control Panel, and guess what? When I click "Set Preferences" I get the same Protection Fault error. Now I have to spend hours looking up the problem online, or getting tech support to fix it. I am unhappy that this device is wasting so much of my time. I am happy that I still have my 1998 Printer that works.

    Fantastic Printer, the best I've owned

    My printing needs are for light home use on average with some occasional spikes in my usage activity a few times a year - tax season, holidays etc. The setup was very simple and I loved how "clean" it was. You can start the process online or through your printer. I did it entirely online. It guided me through all the steps and in the end asked me if I wanted to create an Instant Ink* Account (more on this later). The whole process took about 30 min, including installing and setting up the app on my phone, setting up HP ePrint service and setting up the Instant Ink program. The printer itself looks pretty great and very minimalistic. I tested the automatic feeder scanner and the scan quality is excellent. The HP app on the phone gives you an option to scan documents directly using the phone camera and very smartly parses the data on the documents. The scan quality through the phone's camera was on par with the scanner bed of the printer during my two tests. Print speed is decent for B&W prints and slightly on the slower side for color prints. The boot up time especially for the first print is slower. The print quality for B&W is good and average for color. Both are comparable to printers in this segment from HP and Canon. This printer also supports Wifi-Direct print so you can connect to this printer directly without needing your router. It's good to have but I disabled this for security reasons. The touch panel for controls is pretty decent. Not the best feedback or latency but it's alright for this segment and any day better than hard buttons . What I loved about this printer was the auto deploy of the output paper tray bar when you print something. Overall, I am very pleased with this printer and the features it offers. I also got it for discount during the back to school promotion and combined that with one other offer, so I paid much less for this printer than shown here. The printer cost me the same as my year's worth of ink cost for my last printer. *Instant Ink Program I was looking to replace my old Canon All-in-One which was costing me quite a lot in ink. I have tried them all - refilling, using cheap ink, OEM branded and original. Original was of course the costliest but gave me peace of mind, knowing that I won't have to worry about getting my hands dirty, ink leaks or quality issues. I would go about one XL B&W cartridge and one XL Color cartridge for a total cost of about $50+ in a year. After doing some math, I concluded that even if I go with the $2.99 plan with occasional overages in the months I go over, I will still come out ahead annually. So Instant Ink was a definite go-ahead in my case. If you print in color more, you will save even more with Instant Ink. The added benefit of getting my ink delivered to my door without worrying about it was certainly a plus.

    After All That...Love it!

    I liked allll the advertised features. I liked the small footprint. I liked it's aesthetically pleasing looks. I even went for the okey doke on the ink! Imagine my horror when it wouldn't continue to print wirelessly without me turning it off and back on and having the 'system config' pages (3 of them!) print each time! Finally after 2 chats, numerous 'HP Doctor' fixes, 3 techs, HP switching my wi-fi channel to the 'worst one' for my system, and more reviews and the blog! (Pheww) I was ready to turn it back in and start my research again. I got up one morning and said no, this can't be that difficult to fix and decided to give HP another go! Boy was I glad! I got the best TECH ever. Professional, understanding, empathetic, informative about steps he was taking and KNEW WHAT TO DO! Well...looong story short....'My printer's working...My printer's working!! Just what I wanted. And the tech was soooo good, the next day he called, put me in touch with the ink people to let them know of the problem and all the 'extra' pages printed. Now that was going the extra mile! I made sure I spoke to his supervisor to let him know about his fantastic employee. 4* because it isn't 'perfect'! But still a very good deal - features and price. Paper tray only holds 100 sheets. Love the gizmo that swings out to catch the printed sheets, wished it could swing back in! Haven't tried any of the other features so far, but will be soon. Print quality so far looks very good but the color stays wet a little too long. Have to be careful not to touch too soon.

    Less Cables More Freedom

    This HP printer is really good and well built. My wife and I were looking for a printer that would not take up too much space and also something wireless. When we initially saw this printer, we didn't think much of it. One of the driving factors for us to purchase this was its' price. However, looking at this purchase now, we are glad we bought it. This is a great wireless printer. It sits comfortably on a corner or our kitchen counter. When my kids, wife, or I need to print something we just send it to our wireless printer and it's done. I have even printed a few pictures from my android phone almost effortlessly using the printer. The other great thing about this printer is the ability to scan a few documents and send them directly to your computer. That is very helpful and it saves a lot of time. I have not used the fax on this yet but, I'm sure it works well too. All you have to do is make sure this printer is on your wireless network at home and then everything else falls into place. We just have the printer plugged in to a power outlet and anytime we need it we just hit print on our devices and it prints. This printer is very nice, cost effective, and wireless. This means less cables and more freedom. We hope you like this printer as much as we have so far.

    Connectivity issues make this frustrating

    Posted
    editor

    When it works, it's an affordable printer. But, I'm one of those people that since the 1970's likes computers and printers communicating without spending hours doing the guessing dance. Unfortunately, this computer has you wasting hours like it was 1980 and you were trying to flip the dip switches on a TRS80. IMPOSSIBLE! WIFI is inconsistent. USB is inconsistent. And, HP providing 2 or 3 different pieces of software they recommend installing, you have to keep rotating until you find the combination of software, rebooting, swapping WIFI and USB to get something to print or scan. FORGET IT! I'll use Kinkos!!!

    I really liked what I saw in this and when it worked it worked great. The big con is that when the printer goes into sleep mode, which it does after about 5 minutes of inactivity, it loses the wifi connection. You need to reboot the unit every time and this is just unacceptable. I thought I might have gotten a defective unit, so I returned it and got another one cause I liked how it looked and performed and really wanted it to work, but the new one had the same issue. The best buy dude said that maybe there was a problem with my wifi, but as none of my other devices on the network have ever had an issue like this, I doubt he knew the real cause. I'm searching for a replacement, but will likely not go with an HP product.

    Very good printer and scanner

    Bought this to replace an older HP printer/scanner/fax. I have not used the fax portion so can't comment on that part. But I've found the print quality to be excellent and it appears to be a very frugal user of ink. I'm in the auto refill ink program and they have already sent me new ink but I have so far not needed to replace either cartridge. The scanner is also quite good and the auto-feed capability is a significant improvement over my old printer, which did not have this feature. I've used it for up to 6 or 7 sheets and it's worked fine. Cannot vouch for larger documents. The installation and setup was easier than my older printer. The software is also somewhat cleaner with a more succinct interface but offering essentially the same capabilities. I use the printer via both wireless and HP's email print feature (email a document to an address and it prints) and both work fine.

    Not Recommended At All

    Disappointed

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    We were so impressed by the demo we got we decided to buy it but regretted it after attempting to install and work with this printer. It took hours to try to install and activate this. Their server apparently didn’t work so we installed the software using the enclosed CD but that didn’t work well because as we found out the printer didn’t print in color from the internet or from files on the computer. It could scan in color and make copies in color but not print in color. When we attempted to talk to their support it was another disaster. To add to the frustration, when the printer had to do updates it attempted it 5 times and 4 out of those 5 times failed even though the printer was connected to the internet all the time. After wasting too much time on this and much frustration we gave up on HP and decided not to look at their products again.
