Rated 1 out of 5Â by Attorney Owned 10 HP printers. This is the worst.
I have owned ten HP printers over the last 25 years, including the original Inkjet. This one is the worst. It prints decent color. That is it. It weighs 40 pounds and needs to be plugged into the computer via USB for setup, so be careful where you put it. It is unbelievably noisy. It clicks, thumps and whirrs like a small factory. It will start up with a "calibration" at some time after you turn it on. I was on a speaker phone call once when it started up. I had to switch to the receiver and put my hand over the mouthpiece.
This "calibration" goes on for a minute or two. It does not seem to calibrate anything. I wanted to just lighten up the prints a bit, but to do so requires adjusting each color, individually, then trying again and again. There is no control for just making the image a little lighter.
The software starts reminding you your toner is running out long before it runs out. I was able to print more than 200 pages after the first warning. (200 pages is more than the paper tray holds.) When you finally need toner, a set of four costs more than the printer. I have never used compatible toner before, but I am now.
It does do AirPrint . . . very slowly. It has no envelope feed.

No manual feed. Envelopes are a complete hassle.

This is my color printer. I have a 1606 that I use for black printing. The color print quality is really impressive. Considering I paid $179.00, (memorial day sale) for a color laser printer, you cant beat that. It doesnt have auto-both sides of the page printing like my p1606, but you can do it manually.
I highly recommend this printer.

Easy set-up with my iMac, no problems. Best feature: none of my 3 currently-in-use printers beats this one in the time it takes to turn it on and have it ready to go. It doesn't dance around and make noise, it just lights up and is eager to print. I love that. The printout is crisp, and it handles various paper weights well. I'm an artist and am a little hard on my printers in this regard! Being a replacement (for the time being) for my big, office-size laser printer, this compact model lacks the memory capacity (will occasionally give a memory message when the file is too large) of a big machine. Data transfer with my set-up seems a little slow, otherwise I'd give this machine 5 stars. I haven't needed to buy more toner yet, so that, I'm sure, will be painful. But the starter cartridges are holding out well considering how much I use this convenient fellow.

Set up and operation was a breeze, photos printed from an iPhone has size issues, other than that, the thing that irked me the most was the mailing option- I chose two business day FedEx express, it arrived on the 3rd business day. The price of replacement ink I found is ultra expensive.
