Rated 1 out of 5 by LP775 from Waste of Money I bought this just over a year ago, it hasn't printed in colour for 9 months despite sending it back for repair, it hardly ever connects wirelessly with out turning off / on or trouble shooting, it doesn't recognise the photo tray despite sending back for repair. When I collected it for repair the chap I spoke to said that HP's are not built to last ! More than a year would have been good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CB123 from Worst printer ever Really bad print quality, expensive ink, bad paper feeder, keeps getting the "paper tray is empty" error message (even tough it is full).

Rated 5 out of 5 by CTFirst from Excellent with HP Instant Ink This printer is everything it was advertised to be. Set-up was extremely simple and I've been printing like crazy. The HP Instant ink system is absolutely perfect for elementary teachers who spend so much of their own money to print things in color. If you are into Teachers Pay Teachers and buy many beautiful color items from there, you need a printer like this and Instant Ink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emily0346 from This product is wonderful This will be my first year as a teacher. When I purchased this product I was relying heavily on it, for school purposes which requires a lot of printing. The printer has been very useful and effective. Also, it was a very easy set up! I would recommend this printer to anybody!

Rated 3 out of 5 by gf18 from Great features, but only average performance. Recently had to replace my HP printer because of a broken part, but was happy to find the Envy 5440 and all it's updated features such as wifi printing right off my phone. I really love this convenience. However, the performance on this printer is lacking compared to my old HP All-in-One. First, I cannot get the scanner to scan through wifi. I have yet to try wired. Second, it does not feed well from the photo tray and paper tray. It keeps telling me to add paper but there is plenty of paper in both trays. I have had to shut it down and restart to get it to work properly. So far I have only had this printer a couple weeks, I am hoping this printer will be as reliable as my old HP.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cjds from Very good when it connects When it works, the printer is quite good with excellent print quality. Scan quality good; copy feature is somewhat slow but good result. My issue has been that it occasionally just won't print and I have to reboot or worse. One day the error messages were that the computer could not find the printer. It took several hours, ultimately having to uninstall and reinstall from the cd. It may partly be my lack of expertise in working with compers/internet instructions etc., but one thing I do not understand is why it just stops being connected. One day it is fine; then the next day it won't print...has happened three times since I got it in April. I bought it because it was the only one that would fit in the available space I had for a printer, so I was at least happy to find one. I had an HP Photosmart before which I really liked but no longer available. I have not tried remote printing from my phone or iPad, so have no feedback on that feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrankGee from Great bang for the buck. I've owned MANY printers in my computer lifetime, and I must say that this is probably the best ever. Setup was amazingly simple, print quality is outstanding. The ink replacement program is a great feature also. OVerall, I would give this printer 5 stars Plus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PBSag from This product has good features but had issues Since the day we purchased this printer, we have been unable to print on a consistent basis. After calling the local store where it was purchased to calling HP support, the problem continues. It has been narrowed down to the sleep mode setting. After the printer is down for any length of time, it will not print. The solution is to unplug the printer for a few moments and then try again. HP support was very helpful and did their best to help. I will be returning this to the store and will look for a different model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by frogsoup from no problems so far I bought the wrong printer for my son for xmas but the problem was that I bought it at Walmart back in August during the school supply tax free weekend. When I gave it to him at xmas, he stated that he needed the wireless one, not the model I had bought. Walmart wouldn't take it back, although new in box, never used, and I had receipt, because the purchase was an electronic and made more than 60 days prior to date I was attempting to exchange it. I contacted HP and explained my dilemma and they sent me a prepaid label to ship it them, then issued me an store credit for the full purchase price, plus an additional $10 since the model I wanted was $10 higher at their web store than I could get it for at Best Buy or Walmart. The also shipped the replacement to me for free. They were prompt, friendly, genuine, and generous in every way.
