    Does the job

    • My Best Buy® Member

    I purchased this printer to replace my old HP photosmart all in one printer. It does the job I need it too. Duplex scanning and printing. What I don't like is that when you scan using the automatic feeder, you cannot go higher than 300 on the resolution. In order for you to go higher, you have to use the flatbed scanner, which defeats the purpose of using the feeder when scanning large files. What I would like to know is WHY???? it is so hard to find the ink (902). Walmart, BJ's and others do not carry the 902. Bestbuy only carries the black, yellow and blue. Not the magenta. Only if you by the multi-pack which is the regular size cartridges, not the XL. I want the XL.

    Always having issues


    I originally bought a laser printer that was over $400 and absolutely terrible (seems I may have had a defective one so Best Buy did take it in as a return). I decided to purchase the HP Office jet instead. The print quality is OK, not the best but fine for the price. I love the HP instant ink program. I love that this is wireless and an all in one printer. However...I am constantly having issues with it! Each time I have to call HP it is literally a 2 or 3 hour phone call to get it fixed and always only temporarily fixes the issue. My main issue is with the scanner. Sometimes it just doesn't connect to my computer. I run my own business, have to scan a lot of stuff to my computer and just don't have time to fiddle with this every few weeks when it decides to stop working. The other issue I regularly have is with the scanning tray. Constantly getting jammed for no reason! Ruins documents all the time. Luckily, the price on this was reasonable so I guess you get what you pay for, really wouldn't recommend though.

    Return to inkjet after laser

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    I'd been using a Canon muti-function laser unit for quite a while. It started showing signs of age and finally needed to be replaced. When I had bought it, it made more sense to me to go with a black-and-white laser printer than a color inkjet. I did a lot of printing then and speed was important. Now my needs have changed and I don't need to generate nearly as much paper, and I decided that it would be nice to get back to printing in color. The cost of a color laser unit didn't make sense, so I just focused on multi-function color inkjets. After getting caught up on printer technology after a long time, I settled on this unit as a good balance between price and features. The old printer was connected directly to a computer, which shared it with the rest of the house. However, the reliability was dodgy and it got to be frustrating. So I decided to go with a wi-fi-enabled printer. That was a great choice. I can now print from any computer in the house, and can even print from our phones. I haven't had any problems setting up the computers to use it and the printing and scanning are flawless. Compared with my old laser, the printing speed is much slower, but I only ever print a few pages at a time and speed really isn't a factor. I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay extra to get a unit with a document feeder, but I'm glad I did. It works great. I haven't done enough printing yet to run through the cartridges that came with it, but as part of HP's ink-replacement program, I've received the replacements for when they dry up. I'll have to give the program some time to see how I feel about it. It's kind of cool that the printer "phones home" when the ink is getting low, resulting in a package in the mailbox a couple of days later. I pay a fixed price per month for a specified number of pages; if I go over that, I pay a few bucks more for additional pages. But, regardless of how much ink I go through, I never pay for ink. It's kind of interesting - if I print a document with a single character on it, that counts the same as if I printed a high-resolution photo. It may take a while to work out the appropriate number of pages, as I've never really paid much attention to that before. For performance and reliability, I definitely recommend this unit as a good value - great features at a reasonable price.

    Great Printer

    • Verified Purchaser

    I really like it a lot. It prints with very good quality (haven't used for photos) is very fast and I can print from iPhone while on couch. I can print a document at home while at work. It's all good. Surprisingly I found customer service to be good. I mean all I needed to do was print on paper size that the printer doesn't support. Spent a lot of time on the phone trying to somehow customize it. They couldn't get any customizing to work. I googled and found the solution and the document was from their own website! Well obviously I was miffed. But, I got a follow up call in the evening even though the ticket was closed. I told the guy in India (I assume) about the fix. He asked me a ton of questions about how it works and so I told him and then told him the document was theirs and gave him the document number. He was ver grateful and would be using it with the team there. So, no, they didn't fix the problem but I easily got through and they tried. And they called later AND showed sincere interest about improving.

    If you like office jets you'll like this one

    • Verified Purchaser
    • My Best Buy® Member

    The family doesn't like change. They were used to our all in one printer we had for probably 5 years broke. Easier to get something as similar as possible. This was simple to setup, prints quickly, and testing it with the other printers at Best Buy including hp we liked this the best hands down. Has a little wider footprint than the previous one but it does a nice job with no delay. you won't be sorry

    We made a poor choice

    • My Best Buy® Member

    After getting sold a bill of goods at Best Buy we bought the HP 6978 for our home office. Ugh. The print quality is consistently atrocious. We waste ink and time having to often reprint documents. Even after we do the maintenance steps the problems quickly return. We also signed up for the cartridge supply plan from HP. So far we have received only one box of cartridges from HP. The new black cartridge upon removal from the package and prepping for installation made a HUGE mess all over the desk, my fingers, and sink. EXTREMELY dissatisfied with this HP product and service. Strongly suggest you shop for another printer brand.

    Easy to use

    • My Best Buy® Elite Member

    I was hesitant to get another hp printer after the photosmart that I last bought and rarely used, only lasted only a little over a year when the scanner suddenly stopped working. But after looking at countless reviews, I decided to give this printer a try- after all, it was just released this year and I've yet to try the officejet series. I've only had it for a little over a month and so far, it's worked flawlessly. I did purchase the extended warranty for just $10 just in case I have issues with this printer after the first year. Set up was easy and it prints quickly and smoothly thus far. Works with all my apple products. Haven't had the chance to try the fax feature yet, so hopefully it won't let me down.

    The officejet pro fits my needs. It is easy to setup and use. It provides wireless printing from my phone and tablet as well as my laptop. It is compact, considering its multiple functions. I'm pleased.
