This printer works great. The price is reasonable for simple at home use. We don't use our printer more than a couple times a week and so this printer is nice that it produces quality prints for a great price. HP ink is the best price per page of black and white printed. Our last printer was going through ink super fast because we weren't using the printer often enough so the ink was drying up. We were buying ink at least once a month. We have not had that problem with this printer.

Performance
I love that this printer has two separate ink cartridges so that we don't have to waste ink when just once color runs out. The first time we used it I didn't even have to program it, it simply printed the page I needed and was good to go.

Copy Quality
This printer makes good copies of pages without any difficulty.

Ink/Paper Use
HP printers are the best affordability when considering the price per page of black and white printing. I did a lot of research before I bought this printer (most specifically this brand of printer) because I was tired of wasting money on ink when we were only printing a little bit.

Ease of Use
I love that this printer is basic but yet still copies, scans, and prints. It only has a few buttons to make it easy instead of multiple buttons to navigate to screens that don't do anything important.

Durability
We have only had this printer for a few weeks so I can't rate it on the long term but so far the printer is great and I really love that it is lighter than most other printers.

Design
The printer is classic and clean looking.

I have never had a printer use so much ink as what this HP model did.  We owned it for a little over three months and had to replace the ink at least once a month.  We always print in the "draft" mode so we had it set to use as little ink as possible, but it didn't matter.  Not only that but it was a pain in the butt to wait for it to align itself (wasting more ink as it did so) each time you turned it on.  I was thankful when my son spilled his bottle of lemonade on it and ruined it...it was still under warranty so we at least got our money back.

Great printer!

By 

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

This printer is well worth the price. I really like it. It prints easily and the ink doesn't smudge. It doesn't take it long before it starts to print. I haven't had to realign it either. You can use a lesser grade paper and whatever it prints on the paper looks very good. I definitely recommend this printer for teens and adults

Worst thing I've ever bought.

By 

from USA

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

We decided to invest in a printer not long ago when we got our computer. We figured that we'd get an all in one printer so my husband can print important documents at home instead of traveling back and forth to his office. We had bought this printer with high hopes that it would be amazing, and he'd be able to be home more and so and and so forth. The rest would be history, but it turned out that this printer sucks, and he runs back and forth to his office just as much.

Performance
Paper Jams are usually easy to get out right? Wrong. This printer's "compact style" means that taking out a paper jam is a chore. Sometimes taking us 20 minutes to unjam. I hated paper jams before this, and this printer made me want to throw things.

Copy Quality
"Out of ink" "out of ink" "out of ink" is a regular thing, and the refills for ink are basically the price of a new printer.

Ease of Use
I've tried to print things, like a recipe or something off of the internet, and then jammed the printer, and then spent twenty minutes unjamming it to try again, and then trying to print, and then jamming the printer, and then spent another twenty minutes unjamming it...it's an endless circle of jamming.

Durability
I ended up breaking it with a bat and throwing it into the firepit when I found out that the place that we bought the printer from wouldn't take it back.

It broke easily, and caught on fire very quickly.

Design
The only good thing about the printer is how nice it looked, but without it working, it made the printer uglier than it probably was.

very good printer

By 

from USA

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

The overall quality of this product is good on my scale. I would recommend to anyone looking for a good buy. Not too expensive, not complicated to use.

Performance
I think this printer performed really well. We bought it for a good price. Its been over a year since we've had it and the performance is still going strong. Will we invest in a better printer in the future, maybe, but right now this one does the job just fine.

Copy Quality
The quality for copying is also great. Clear images, we've never had an issue with it.

Ink/Paper Use
I hate buying ink, its always so expensive. BUT its a good thing my family doesn't use to much ink or paper. When we do though it prints great. Good clear images or letters or photos, whatever it is that we need.

Ease of Use
At first I was a little confused at how to use some features. I'm not very good with electronics. but even I figured out how to use it in about no time. I love it and now find it very easy to use.

Durability
It's durability is good. A little heavy but sturdy.

Design
The design is nice. It's only a printer, but for a printer I would say it looks pretty good. It fits well in my computer room. I use it with a MAC computer.

Good Price

By 

from USA

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

His is a good little all in one printer for the price. I have not had very good luck with printers. Seems like after replacing the ink they ever work again. I have had pretty good luck with this one. I have purchased more expensive ones that were not any better and still broke down before they had been used very much. So far I am very happy with this one. The replacement inks are reasonable as well. Although for this price if I have trouble with it after replacing the ink it is not that big a deal to get another one. Sometimes the inks run as much as you can get a whole new printer for. I like the all in ones because when you need to make a copy of something it is nice not to have to run around to find somewhere that has a copy machine. Drug stores and grocery stores use to have them but now days with so many printers being all in one i guess they are not worth the stores having.

Copy Quality
Copies are as good as any other copy machine I have used.

Ink/Paper Use
Uses the same amount of ink you would use with any other machine. The price on the Hp ink is not to bad in comparison to other brands.

Durability
Time will tell....

Design
Is like most other all in one printers.

best printer

By 

from USA

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

I love this printer! I have printed pictures, black and white and colored pages. Each page and picture came out looking very professional. I would recommend this to anyone. It does go through ink easily but the ink is the cheapest price I have seen for any combo printer.

This is an awesome printer. HP's are the best!!!

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

I have owned several of the HP models over the years and I my opinion, HP's are the best printers on the market. I personally use and own this model and it's super. Best of all, it does everything. You feel like you own a small business locked inside this printer. If I need another printer at some point, and this model is still available, I would definitely buy another.

Multitasking!

By 

from USA

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

Before owning this printer I have never owned a printer! But now that I have owned it for over 6 months, I have to the point that I could not live without it anymore! I have done so much & saved so much money with this printer that it has been amazing, it has literally paid for itself over and over! I love the quick print and multitasking features that it comes with!

Ink/Paper Use
I have only bought 2 ink cartridges in the past year with this printer!

Worst printer ever

By 

from USA

Comments about HP Deskjet All-In-One InkJet Printer:

This printer is absolutely terrible. Don't waste your money. I've never had such a bad printer in my life. It prints slow and the quality is well, TERRIBLE. Hp get your head out of the gutter and fix up your printer. There is only buttons on the thing do you have no clue what your doing. You just press random buttons and it works. Terrible hp, terrible. Get it together.
