Dismal longevity.

 

feature-laiden

software issues galore; fatal error messages; will not reset to clear them; time to toss it in the lake

Great all in one that doesn't give up on you.

 

I would recommend this product for anyone with a home hobby or even a very small business. While not the fastest out of the blocks, it is trustworthy and rarely fails to complete tasks.

I have been using this for some time and it always works perfectly. It will answer a fax and print copies at the same time. It seems to be stingy on ink. Paper jams are quick to fix and rare. I can control almost all functions from my XP computer

I wish it were a little faster. The scanner is not the best quality either. It cannot handle two sided printing without another optional part. It is not wireless but works well on a hard wired network

TO BAD COLOR INK ISSUE

 

I'VE BEEN USING THE 6150 FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW PRINTING, FAXING, SCANNING, AND EVERYTHING IS GREAT EXCEPT, AND IT'S A BIG EXCEPT. IF YOU RUN OUT OF ANY COLOR YOU CAN'T PRINT IN BLACK! THERE IS NO GOOD REASON FOR THIS EXCEPT TO MAKE MORE MONEY FOR HP....

NICE PRINT QUALITY

CAN'T PRINT IN BLACK IF COLOR RUNS OUT

Consumer review by:

Very poor software; prints great

 

Overall, this All-in-Once experience has been very disappointing. I've now been using the printer for over a year for work and personal tasks. In the positive column, I like the Vivera ink system. The tanks were so small, I though I would run out of...

Printing is wonderfully fast and the wireless connectivity to WIndows XP machines works very well. Scanned and printed documents generally seem fairly color accurate

Scanning is almost useless. You can NOT scan at the maximum dpi with the software provided; it takes forever to transfer and present scanned images

Consumer review by:

Don't buy if you use Vista and run wireless

 

The C6150 works great with XP wireless networks and doesn't work with Vista wireless networks. The printer constantly uninstalls. HP is unresponsive, uncooperative, and won't acknowledge the problem. The same thing occurs on the OfficeJet 7400 series...

Works great with XP wireless networks

Uninstalls with Vista and renders it useless

Consumer review by:

Looks good, functions bad!

 

Using Vista (which also stinks) I upgraded to this machine to get the multi-page doc feeder. So after 5-6 hours of installation nightmares and configuring the wi-fi and endless tech support I got it printing. Then I tried scanning and it says no...

great features

horrible software

Consumer review by:

Do not buy HP products!

 

Here I am trying to copy a document and it's telling me that I cannot do a black and white copy because it's out of yellow ink! And in this case, they didn't even give the razor away (cost me $200+) before hitting upon me for the razor blades even...

I can't think of anything

Just about everything

Consumer review by:

Lots of features, Broken software

 

The C6150 seems like a really nifty unit. Not terribly ugly unlike most printers. Lots of features including sheet feader and built-in wifi. I was excited to use it to scan documents, among other things, but... their "solution center" software (dumb...

Inexpensive, Lots of features, Not as ugly as most printers

Scanning software broken, Bad tech support
