I seem to have horrible luck with HP printers. But, given what I have seen online and given what I have read from other HP printer owners, I do not feel it is anything I am doing. Rather, I feel that HP printers just have poor reliability issues. I do not drop, hit, or splash water on my printers. I am just as meticulous and careful with my printers as I am with my laptops and notebooks. I also do not use my printers every day, constantly like some people do. I require a printer to occasionally print some essays for me (I am in college) and to print some coupons occasionally. That is all I do with my printer realy as far as printing goes. Well, this one, regardless of what ink cartridge i give it, will always destroy the quality of the print by producing and pring a poor print job. I have cleaned the ink tips and I have swapped out the cartrdiges with brand new ones. At the moment, I am simply using the HP 7310 as a scanner to scan images into my computer--that's all it will do right now. A shame since this is supposed to be an all-in-one printer, not simply a scanner.
