Not Quite Perfection.


Hewlett-Packard Deskjet 970Cse

Fast text output and superior photographic repro.

Occasionally may cause your computer to freeze.

HP DeskJet 970Cse - Lemonade from Lemons


Hewlett-Packard and I have an unspoken agreement. They promise to sell me the one slightly defective lemon perched on some office supply store shelf and I pay full MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price.) This deal only works if I pay full...

Clear black text ; nice graphics and photo printouts ; solid construction and 150-sheet paper tray

Sluggish performance ; Two-sided Print Module is a waste of time and money

Good 'ole HP!


We bought the HP DeskJet 970 Cse a little over a year ago, when we also purchased our iMac. It always amazes me when we go to buy new equipment; we always keep our computers and peripherals waaaaay longer than their life expectancies, because they just...

Great print quality, holds up under frequent use

Ink cartridge prices are nearly prohibitive!!

Unbelievable quality, but not perfection


I had had a Deskjet 693C for over four years and it finally started to break down. It may well have been fixable, but it was so outdated, it was worthwhile to upgrade instead.

Incredible text and photographic prints

Blue ink required to print black, quality paper needed

Prints great, a little slow, through


Reading the title of this opinion, you may be thinking, "Is he high or something?" I know, I said this printer is a bit on the slow side. I mean this when referring to printing final copy photo prints. I've seen some faster printers. This...

Quality and accuracy

Yet to be discovered design flaw ?


I purchased the 970 Cse/Cxi unfortunately to replace my H.P. 722C printer (these models are the same printer with different software options). I've owned H.P. printers since the early "600 series" days, and have always been impressed with...

Great general print quality. Photo prints great on standard sized paper.

Horrible envelope printing and 4x6 photo paper printing. Toll number for support, and poor customer care services.

it's starting to grown on me...


I purchased this product to complement my digital camera and my new scanner; my HP Deskjet 820CSE, no matter how fond I am of it, just isn't cutting it with photos.

speed, print quality

Dual sided wonder


This printer is great! It's quiet, the ink cartridges seem to last a while, the quality is super, and the automatic dual sided printing is wonderful! No longer am I wasting paper by only printing on one side.

Auto dual sided feature, quiet, neat design.

A little expensive

You won't believe how excited I am!


I know it's a little silly to be excited about a printer, but I just can't help it. I've only had my new HP 970Cse for a couple of weeks. I haven't had time to try out all of the possibilities, but I'm excited to explore them further.

Great photo quality. Very easy to use.

Not enough time to play with it. Some fixable compatibility problems with older programs.
