HP Color LaserJet 2820 - Multi Function Device

 

Just like Epson, hp is dipping its toe in the waters of colour laser based multi-function devices. But how does this new hp model compare to the excellent Epson?

The concept of the Color LaserJet 2820 is good and the physical implementation is neat and effective. The print speed leaves a lot to be desired, though, the noises it makes are unpleasant and we were surprised to see a corruption in one of our print...

Worst HP Product. Spent $500 to replace scanner.

It's HP Product

Worst HP Product. Spent $500 to replace scanner. Replacement scanner is not working well either

Utilities function has not worked for 1� years

 

If the software used with a product does not work after a year we think that you should not buy any products from the company Hewlett Packard. Their products seem to be produced in China -cheep - and their software does not support their hardware for...

Well? The printer worked fine a while, but whithout giving us any warning it could not suddenly print yellow colors

The HP Laser Jet 2820 was provided with certain software: you were at the beginning able to see the status of your printer through the Utilities function. After about a year this function disappeared. We have had several contacts with HP, but no help

Excellent performance for 16 workstation office setting

 

Rugged, feature rich, printer, copier, scanner sure to meet the needs of most small or medium offices.

High quality printing of photos and text, Read Iris Pro scanning software works great and special features are accessible with user friendly menus

The machine is a bit noisy so placement is key to avoid objections from users

Worst HP product I ever had in 20 years

 

I have purchased this all-in-one 2 years ago because it works (supposedly) with Mac OS9 + OS10. It is hell. Every time I try to access it with an older Mac with OS9, I have to reload the driver & reconfigure everything. The scanner quality is really...

Would be great if did what is supposed to

Does not do any of the stuff it is supposed to
