Rated 1 out of 5 by SofK from Error upon error :/ I bought this printer as I hoped it would be more reliable than my Officejet 7500 - but I'm spending hours and hours on solving different errors - always! Think I'm completely done with HP after a minimum of three very bad products. All I by is Officejet pro and I would therefore expect a little quality

Rated 1 out of 5 by neverbuyinghpagain9 from Absolute garbage product and customer support I bought this printer to use at home, it doesn't get much use. Yes, I've had it for about 4 years and just today I received an error message that there is an issue with the print head. Well after spending over an hour on the phone with support, the only piece of advice or help they would give is that I "should of bought the extended warranty" and "Here's a discount code for 5% off". How about you make a product that lasts instead of selling this garbage. I have other printers at my office for nearly 8 years, made by HP, that work perfectly and never had an issue. Their customer support is terrible and rude.

Rated 2 out of 5 by syw610 from Terribly Unfair This model was discontinued for performance reasons; it clearly failed as a reliable product and burned through ink like crazy. Now it needs new printhead replacements that cost 2x the actual purchase price. How???? My product was registered. In the very least, HP should have contacted to either buy back or offer discount or coupon towards new purchase after discontinuing this model. Or I could just invest in new product by different manufacturer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kloiga from Does Not Last This printer began having black ink head issues after a year. Cleaning the black ink head kept it going for a few more months, but now won't print black at all. Internet searches reveal this is an issue with this series. Replacing the ink head will cost more than the printer. Now looking for a printer that'll last more than a year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by paul516 from Wouldn't buy again I've had mine for several years and it's worked OK once I got one that worked at all. HP replaced the original twice under warrantee for various reasons. The final replacement has worked for a couple of years until it started printing pink streaks in dark blue areas. Repeated print head cleaning has failed to resolve the problem and since the print head is non-removable and sending to HP for repair would cost more than a new color laser from Staples it looks like this old printer is going away to be replaced by a new color laser.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Calac from HP Officejet complete failure in 3+ years I bought HP 6830 about 3 1/2 years ago (spent ~$125+). The black color is not printing at all, even after rebooting and going thru 3 levels of cleaning cartridge/printhead. I replaced the cartridges with brand new, genuine cartridges few weeks ago (spend $80!). The support agent now tells me I have to get a new printer and that of course means my cartridges are useless. Of course, I would also have to buy new cartridges for my new printer ! It is totally unacceptable that a company like HP should manufacture a product that only lasts 3 1/2 years. Imagine the resources used to put a product like that together. I would hesitate to recommend a HP printer to anyone. It was stunning how non chalant HP is about telling you...I know it is not the unfortunate agent's fault, but they are in the frontlines. Case # 5030966753

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nonserenity from Hated having to pay for “per page” I have always love all HP products but will buy no more. I thought if I just stopped payments to them I could buy my own ink cartridge. NOPE. My printer stopped working until I reinstated their monthly withdrawal from my bank account. THEN I get a “there is a problem with the print cartridge”! I tried running the “clean print cartridge” three times only to have it freeze up completely! That was the last straw. I went out and bought a Cannon that I’m happy with! And now won’t let me post my review!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Angry Lawyer from Beware Bought this printer in 2015 and have had one problem after another. It is the most expensive hunk of junk printer I have ever bought. The scanner will not work so you are better off buying a $20 printer. Customer support is anything but that. They want to charge you to talk to anyone if it has been a year since purchase and your warranty is expired. I will never buy another HP as a result.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jfelixs from Good printer, until the initial ink runs out not bad out-of-the-box. But all down hill from there. New ink cartridges cost more than buying another printer and chances are pretty high you will not be able to print with them anyways. Ink head never worked once I replaced the ink cartridges. Wireless is unusable because it's always dropping and fax only worked once, the second time I needed it, it just won't do anything. Unfortunately I do not use the printer too often so it's out of warranty but seems like the only thing that still works is the scanner. I should have spent the 90$ of the ink on a new printer, that's NOT HP.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BigDRichT from Color printing quality happened fast - Print heads This is the third HP all-in-one I've purchased over the years. This was the first one I will not be able to give to charity as a workable, quality printer when I buy the next one. One day, a little over a year of light use (100 - 200 pages per month - mostly black & white - light color printing), it just stopped printing colors properly and began to streak. After multiple cleanings and streak removal maintenance and changing printer cartridges, I've given up. I'm extremely disappointed in this printer. I've been loyal to HP for all this time and this is leaving a very sour taste. Won't even print green anymore.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shouvik from HP 6830 All in One This product has great features. I really needed the covered paper tray, the top loading feature, double sided printing and scanning, with WiFi printing as a bonus. However, what I did not like was that within about 3 months, I started getting a "print head error" which required the print head to be replaced. The service provisioning is also not seamless. It was almost two weeks before the replacement could be done. With my previous HP 5610, we never had a hardware issue for nearly 8 years - all it needed was a bit of cleaning! But it gave up and we bought this for our personal use and a minor home office.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MLFamily from Printhead error As you can see from the many reviews this printer has a issue that causes it to have a printhead error which seems to be unfixable. Our printer got the error in less than a year and never worked again. On the other hand we are VERY impressed with the support from HP on this issue. After a quick phone call HP did the right thing and replaced the printer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ow w.k. from Excellent print quality, easy to setup and use HP 6830 is an excellent product with great print quality at a reasonable price. It is easy to use and can be set up easily, basically just plug in and use. It gives us many great print-outs for both my office work and my children's school assignments. It gave a print-head issue after some 8 months of use but it was quickly rectified by HP, promptly and without any fuss.

I do a lot of printing for personal and business so can't really do without for a long period of time! I really like HP products , however I need something that will not leave me stuck!! I would have gladly given 5 stars across the board, however this printhead issues seems to be an issue that happens quite often from the reviews I have read!

Eerytime I am in a really need a print or anything it doesnt work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AmitD from Beware: Print Head life of 16 months Purchased a Officejet 6835 16 months ago. Used carefully sparingly and always with original cartridges. Out of the blue today, in the middle of kids exams, the printer stops working with a "problem with printhead" error message. Searched the web and seems like this problem is very common for the 6830 and 6835 family of printers. And the printhead cannot be replaced so printer will need replacing. So I now have a almost new printer which is useless!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Barb59 from Important information omitted in description I need all functions to perform wireless through my iPhone and iPad. After installing the HP Officejet Pro 6830 e-All-In-One printer I find out in order to fax you have to hook it up to a phone line. No where in the description does it indicate that. It says copy,scan ,print,fax, web. It does not indicate anywhere that faxing needs a phone line. What does "wireless" mean?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cali65 from Not a Great Experience I bought this printer to replace another HP Printer that would not connect to an HP laptop. Finally got it to work and the lights started flashing and nothing would work. Printer discontinued. I took the 6830 out of the box and made a few faxes and then put it back to move. It has been sitting in the box until recently. Went to use it and it now reads "Problem with Printhead." Of course, warranty is 2 months expired and I was notified HP doesn't service this one anymore. My question... why is HP still selling an item they won't service? I have had terrible luck with the HP products of late. I had an earlier Photosmart printer that I had for 5 years and gave it away when I moved... sure miss that one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jackie27a from First time HP has let me down The features are awesome, but it eats expensive ink very fast and even when it does have enough ink, solid areas of one color or black comes out smeared. Huge disappointment. I'm going to try to take it back because I can never get a decent print out of it, even if I have brand new ink cartridges and have just cleaned the print heads. I've blown over $200 on ink so far and have printed less than 100 pages on this machine. Other than the fact that it doesn't print well, it's great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JLG622 from Can't print a standard envelope? WHAT? Unheard of So disappointed and upset. This printer can't print a standard 5x7 (5.25 x 7.25) envelope. AKA A7 envelope. It is a basic function that every printer I've ever owned (all non HP) have been able to handle. This printer does not have the capabilities and it's been confirmed by the online support I was on the phone with for quite a while! That's envelopes for cards, wedding invites and MANY other standard items! It's just crazy to me that ANY printer can't print a standard envelope. So disgusted right now.

But 10 prints later it said low on ink on all the cartridges. So I went out to my local retailer and purchased all new ink and paid almost $80. Well about 15 prints later it says low on ink yet again. It also prints them with vertical lines running throughout the prints. I always had hp computers and even own 2 hp laptops I also have had good experiences with their printers but this was by far the worst printer I have ever owned.
