Great printer for the small business owner or busy household!

 

First impressions, this thing is a huge and heavy beast! My wife could not carry it in once it was delivered so I had to leave work to move it in so it did not sit outside all day.

High quality hardware with many options. This printer came with all the ink cartridges you will need for at least several months (depending on usage). Setup was a breeze, only having to connect a few pieces, load the ink and paper trays, and then...

The price is a little steep. When I received this printer from Newegg, I found that it was on sale at many other locations for only $299 or sometimes a bit less. Newegg has since come down to $349, but there are still other places to buy this for $299...

Good printer

 

This printer is probably best geared for home, small to medium sized businesses, for regular home use it you might want to look for something a bit smaller unless you print alot of stuff. I also investigated a claim by another reviewer that the printer...

When unboxing this printer, I was surprised to see this printer included a second set of color ink carts and an XL black cart ; Assembly was fairly easy and can be done by one person, only needing to connect about 3 different pieces together. Setup and...

The only real big cons for this printer is the size and weight. It takes up alot of desk space even without the second paper loader deck compared to regular home inkjet printers so make sure you have sufficient room before purchase ; The weight is...

I have been using this printer now for a little over a week now and every day I discover a new feature to it that is not written down anywhere that I can find. From the touch panel I can access some nice features especially if have little children or...

nice

 

there should be software to set your dpi. other than that it is a nice unit

first it is very large. i would recommend it for small business. i think its to large for most desks. setup was pretty easy took me 30 minutes to get it all set up and printing ; i set it up to my wireless network. which is nice

the size is the onlt issue for me

Need help bringing inside

 

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE THE BOTTOM TRAY IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WHICH WOULD MAKE THE UNIT ABOUT 4” SHORTER, BUT THAT WOULD REDUCE THE PAPER CAPACITY ABOUT 250 SHEETS SO NEED TO LOAD THE TRAY MORE OFTEN ALSO LIKE I HAVE MINE SETUP TRAY 1 I HAVE MY #10...

UNPACKAGED IT AND DISCOVERED A LARGER PRINTER THAN I EXPECTED (IT IS A MONSTER) AND TOOK A FEW MINUTES TO ASSEMBLE THE PRINTER (THE PRINTER SITS ON A BASE THAT HAS THE 2ND OPTIONAL PAPER TRAY) PLUGGED IT IN TURNED IT ON AND STARTED SETUP FROM THE TOUCH...

MY BIGGEST CON FOR THIS PRINTER IS THE SIZE IT BARELY FITS ON MY DESK. WHEN SETTING UP SCAN FROM COMPUTER USING THIS SCANNER THE SETTINGS ONLY ALLOW ME TO GO UP TO 300DPI INSTEAD OF 1200DPI I CAN FIND NO INFORMATION THAT ALLOWS ME TO GET A HIGHER...

Lovin' it!

 

I am absolutely pleased with this purchase, so much so, I told my best friend about it and she purchased the same one and loves hers as well! I definitely would recommend buying this All-In-One! Couldn't go wrong! A cool feature that I liked was that I...

Easy to Set Up

Consumer review by:

Easy to use and fast

 

This replaced an older OfficeJet pro L7650. The setup was a breeze for both my Mac and Windows PCs. Printing from iPad and iPhone is super simple and the adjustable touch screen controller is very intuitive.

Good Value, Easy to Use, Fast, Quality, Easy to Set Up

Love This Printer

 

I couldn't wait to get this printer. I am so glad I did. It has high capacity, duplexes, faxes, scans and even has apps on it. It also qualifies for the HP ink program, which will save me $$ on ink. I got a really good deal with price matching.

Great Single Platform Printer

 

The printer does everything you would want for an all-in-one printer and the remote print features are an added bonus.

Does pretty much everything

Space

Consumer review by:

Bitter Sweet

 

It's a great printer when it works. The number pof pages you get out of an ink cartridge is a big money saver! The downside is the unreliable connectivity. I have mine connected to my wireless network and I am constantly getting "Offline" messages. My...
