Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary1956 from Definitely High Tech printer I bought this printer last June. I really like the way it communicates with HP. I get ink when I need it automatically and I can scan directly to my email. The only glitch has been a surge in electricity caused me to have to re-boot everything like I had just bought the product but it did not take long to download and update.

Rated 3 out of 5 by David K55 from Instant Ink Issues I would have given a higher rating but I have an issue with HP regarding Instant Ink. When I first bought my printer I was advised to subscribe to Instant Ink, which I did. When I relaized I didn't need a constant supply of ink I opted out of the subscription, however I still had ink from the program which I paid for. I was surprised to find out that I couldn't use the ink because I wasn't enrolled anymore, even though I bought the ink. I don't think this is fair.
