HP 3520

 

Prints quickly. Decent scanner. Has an automatic duplexer

Ink cartridges are ridiculously small. You run out of ink fairly quickly

You get what you pay for.

 

I'm dealing with it for the time being, but if I'd have paid more I'd have sent it back right away. You get what you pay for, but this is a first for me with an HP product, and I have many.

I bought the machine as a copier and it has good quality

It's loud, but more annoying is the fact that you have to assist the paper feed each time. I've tried more paper, less paper and amounts in between in the paper tray, but nothing corrects the problem

Works as the other crapped out

 

It replaced the exact same model that broke with the dreaded 'head exception; that they do. It works just like the original and the kids have an extra box to play with

Came working out of the box

Work, But annoying.

 

Spend the few extra bucks and get a printer that will wake up automatically and reconnect when you try to print something. Save the headache. I wish I did.

It works. Looks nice. Easy Set up

Goes into sleep mode and won't print unless it is turned off and back on. Becomes very annoying after a little while ; Occasionally have connectivity issues but usually works

Good for occasional home use

 

Considering I just needed a printer for the occasional thing I needed to print out or scan (what with everything being digital these days) it meets my needs just fine. More demanding users might have issues I haven't seen.

Works when I need it to, connects to local wi-fi so no need to run a network cable out to it (inconvenient location for that). Print quality is good for what I use it for

A bit loud when running, drivers are a bit bloated considering I don't need half the functionality they have. HP is notorious for their ink being expensive and having chips in the cartridges that cause them to "expire", as well as issues with generic inks

Great Buy!

 

This will be the fourth printer I have ever owned. I haven't used it very much yet, but so far it works very well. One main reason I bought this printer was that it was supposed to well suited for my Linux operating system. I used my wife's Win XP Home...

if you need wireless this is not the printer

 

For the low price I thought it mignt be worth a chance. I was wrong.

Nice price with a lot of functionality

The printer maintains a connection to the network for 2-3 hrs then disappears from the network. Now you are back to step one and go through he setup process. I have used two different routers, moved the routers around to improve the signal and still...
