The printer when first UN boxed worked like a charm. This AIO printer performed well without any glitches. Six months into fairly light duty regular printing, the ink cartridges started giving me problems with "test" printing color pages with both stripped or multicolored samples that could NOT be fixed. Multiple nozzle alignments, head cleanings, manual print carriage cleanings, track cleanings and ink suppository cleaning had NO affect what so ever. I both have and had no choice but to throw this piece of garbage away. I bought a new Epson AIO and so far I'm happy as can be. Everyone knows that ANY manufacturer printer is built as a disposable device, as the REAL money is made in selling the ink cartridges which in the short run PAY for the printer many times over. The HP "chipped" cartridges are designed to incur multiple owner difficulties, especially if you DARE use a second party ink cartridge to continue your work and also to get a good working life out of your investment. I PERSONALLY know HP is horrendously territorial over this fact and rule people looking to make a meager earning from selling second hand ink. HP threatens manufactures and resellers alike with law suits and Cease and Desist court orders to continue their STRANGLEHOLD on ink sales. I can produce printed threat notices direct from HP if need be. Too bad, but it's absolute TRUTH, and HP knows it. I will NEVER AGAIN buy an HP printer because of 1) It's poor product longevity and 2) HP's ruthless business practices that really DON'T have to exist. If anything, if their products were allowed to operate long term, then people just MIGHT be inclined to purchase again in a "reliable" quality product. But that thinking is obviously hay wire, so as far as I'm concerned HP printers can turn to dust for all I care. Thank you (for nothing) - ***

I Like the Printer very much. It is a little noisy when printing but the Quality of the the Print is worth it. The print cartages are not cheap but the Printer does not waste any ink. Using normal print it does not seem to be using much ink. I also like the Scan feature, the scans are of very good quality and the setup was easy too.
