Rated 1 out of 5 by mkutt from No fax This may be a good printer but it was offered to me by hp as a replacement to an all in one printer that broke. I had to return it because it does not have fax capabilities. The only tanksmart printer with fax is relatively expensive

Rated 3 out of 5 by BOI GRL from Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! HP outdoes itself! The HP Smart Tank 5101 All-in-One Printer has exceeded my expectations in every way. From the sleek design to its exceptional quality, this printer stands out. It delivers sharp and vibrant prints consistently. The printer speed is perfect for high volume tasks. What highly stands out are the specific instructions to set it up, very detailed and sensible to follow. I was dreading and anticipating a couple of hours to assemble but was less than an hour. I was proud of myself in the assembly and pleased about the easy to follow instructions. Additionally, I appreciate the ease of downloading the HP software along with the ease of software connectivity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GERSEB from Thank you HP fantastic printer. What impressed me about this Smart Tank 5101 printer is how small it is, it fits anywhere. It is surprising how easy it was to install, really even a child could do it. One of the things I appreciated is how quiet it is when printing or scanning. HP has done a great design with this printer, as the print quality is unbeatable. The application is really easy to use and when you are in a hurry it works great. The system for filling the ink tanks is fantastic as there is no chance of spilling ink. And the best thing is that using the ink is cheaper than buying cartridges in previous models. This printer is definitely worth the money. We are very happy with this outstanding printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cee2850 from Super Smart HP Tank I have just started using my HP Smart Tank 5101 so I will have to revisit to compile more info on it. It was very easy to set up. The ink tank is clearly marked, as are the ink colors. The directions weren't the best when it came to inserting the ink cartridges so I looked up the process on You Tube. I had to remove a part that was protecting the cartridges and wanted to be sure I was doing the right thing. The most unusual aspect of the Smart Tank is a separate app for scanning, which was quite unique. So far the printing and scanning have been excellent and it's a quiet machine. Will get back to you later after further observation. Thank you Insiders!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Asantijr from Amazing Colors This printer is pretty quiet, the colors are vibrant and the ink tanks are a plus, since buying the ink in bottles definitely is a money saver. The one thing that could be improved would be a quicker printing speed and the ability to fax.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Heyitsme1 from First time super tank user I'm excited to review my new HP 5101 printer. In setting it up the instruction booklet could have been a little more explanatory, however it may have just been me wanting more explanation on a particular step. After the initial stumbling block the rest of the setup was fairly easy. I do like the wireless aspect, no wires,(yea!). I do like the layout of the control panel buttons and lights, very smartly on the left side of the printer and easy to understand. I would prefer if the paper tray held more paper. I will do more testing and post another review in a couple days. So far I like this printer.

I have a problem with the ink dried up in printers. Will this solve my problem? Can I put the canisters in the refrigerator to keep them from dried out?

Asked by: Anonymous
This printer is designed to avoid that on its own with airtight seals. If you tend to not print frequently, you may want to consider a LaserJet which uses toner instead of ink that will not dry out.
