Pretty Good

Easy set up works fine. But it does not support HP e.print and that is not good. My old HP 3050A (cheap and cheerful) has been rattling on e.print for a few years now, and that one is as high tech. as my old wheelbarrow. And has a largish flip up screen with full menu. So I won'the be getting rid of that one anytime soon. In fact I might try source a new one If they are still available. So much for progress Amen

Great value piece of kit

Bought this printer over a year ago and it's been great. Was easy to set up and reliably prints quickly and efficiently. I agree with an earlier review that cartridges need a firm push to slot into place and the front door/cover to access the cartridges could be stronger but overall printer is fine. I also use for scanning and copying and again fine. I personally wish the scanning software allowed more adjustments to the image but this is a small point. Overall great value for money printer.

Easy to set up

I have read a number of reviews here suggesting how difficult this printer is to set up. Sorry to contradict but I found it the easiest ever, including WiFi and cartridge alignment. And I have owned more printers than I have had hot dinners. The quick guide was perfectly sufficient and allowed me to complete the task from opening the box to printing in 15 minutes. I find printing quality and speed very good. If I have any slight gripes they would be that the cartridges need to be pushed quite hard into position and that the front panel allowing access to the carriage is a little "flimsy". Otherwise good value for money. One final point would be to shop around for the cartridges as prices can vary considerably.

Poor Set-up Instructions

I set up one of these for a friend yesterday. I've set up printers since PCs were invented and this was the most difficult yet. HP should see how their big competitors do it. The series of pictures showing how to prepare after unpacking didn't inspire. Instead of auto running when I put in the disc. It just sat there doing nothing. So I had to find the Setup file. Once this had started it proceeded slowly, throwing up screens that were not easy to follow. Luckily, it found the router and didn't need to know the network security key and we didn't need to use the rather short cable supplied. You need to push in the paper quite firmly and a single sheet is apt to crinkle up before it is properly in position. Print quality is average for an inkjet on black text and colour is passable. It prints a text page that you have to put into the scanner for head alignment so this does a basic check on the scanner. Getting to this stage took 2 hours so I didn't check the scanner properly as the user probably won't need it. As the print heads are in the cartridges head alignment will probably need doing on each cartridge change. HP could inspire much more confidence in their product if they gave some more simple help on the set-up disc by putting an auto-run file on the disc where the computer will find it and then tell you what it is doing as it proceeds. Me, I'm not putting this on my must buy list.
