Comment:
I am currently on my THIRD printer, provided by my warrantee after hours on the phone with HP customer service to verify that my printer really doesn't work. I'm glad I bought the warrantee but it turns out that ALL of these printers are reconditioned- even the one I bought new(?) from the store. It seems that the signals between my computer and the printer-or the printer cartridges- gets cut off or something. Then the printer is totally useless and technical help just can't help. Getting a replacement printer takes hours of talking on the phone, set up, packing and returning the one that doesn't work. I will never buy another HP printer/copier!!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
