    I've only had this printer all in one for a few weeks. It didn't need to be installed on the computer. It started working the minute that the PRINT button was pushed. The color quality printing is spot on.

    I have only had this printer for about 10 days, but, so far it has functioned very well. Easy to set up, operate, and good quality printing. Happy with purchase.

  • Nice Printer
    Verified Purchase

    This is a nice printer. I have been using it for a couple of months now and it is standing up well. It took me a minute to figure out how to put the ink jets in but I'm not the best one at that kind of stuff. But I love this printer and I wanted a white one to go with my decor. I am changing my mind about this printer because if you don't buy your ink cartridges from HP the printer will work off an on, even though the cartridges were suitable for this printer. I would not buy an HP printer again.
