What happened HP? Horrible product

Comment:
I don't know who designed this printer, but, it is the worse HP product I ever owned. It won't even power up most of the time, and not enough time to even consider keeping it. The set-up was awful and even aligning the cartridges was a problem. Sheese, what a piece of junk!!!
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Set up was easy. HP has some interesting features but are mostly a waste of ink. The web printing is pretty neat assuming the printer even prints some/any of your document. It leaves a nice gradient effect combined with a wide variety of hues depending on the time of the week all across your document when you only want a colored title. It is super fickle and sometimes double prints your stuff (sometimes i wonder if it is designed that way to waste your ink). You are better off burning your money so you do not have to deal with it. DO. NOT. BUY.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

This is the worst printer or HP investment I have ever bought! This printer 4500 envy is not worth buying. It never works. When you're a study that is relying on this to print your assignments, you cannot rely on this product because it's not garanteed that it will work. The printer is ALWAYS offline, then online. You're always troubleshooting this headache! You spend more time trying to figure out how it works than actually printing something.
