Rated 4 out of 5 by CRJ4 from Have not used very much, so not sure of rating to Putting it at a 4 star at present because I haven't used it much yet. Sometimes, the printer says it's offline, which prevents me from making prints. Lately, it's been working. If I see "printer offline" anymore, I'll plan to contact HP support to get their help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edward400400 from Good quality printer. Nicely engineered The printer is very good. It is fast and so far reliable. The HP web site, to download the printer driver, is loaded with company junk. The junk makes it more confusing when your trying to activate the printer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LizC from Would not connect to internet Very disappointed that my printer would not connect to the internet and I have to use an Ethernet cable from my BRAND NEW IMAC to my brand new HP printer. HP automated assistance is useless. I tried EVERY option suggested by HP and also by Apple.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ekogan from issues with proper tray selection software trouble selecting the correct tray. we have an extra 550 tray for legal paper and the different programs constantly select the wrong tray and the printer does not function properly. would not recommend this printer. also purchased the high yield toner cartridge at over $225 and the cartridges get 3000 pages or less - very disappointing.
