My husband purchased this for me as birthday gift. Excellent choice overall, prints good, price was very good, easy to set up ... however, one minor irritant. The printer's wifi connection 'glitches' when printing multiple pages, and only prints the 'last' couple of pages before it quits. There's no way to go back & retrieve them without starting the process all over again (and if you're a coupon printer like I am, with coupon limits, that's not always an option). The printer program doesn't offer an option to access previous print jobs, and even though the printer gives an error when it doesn't print all the pages, they're not available in the printer que to complete the printing job. Instead I have to go through & print only 1-2 pages at a time, which is very time consuming. This is also a problem for printing out shipping labels or a downloaded .pdf such as car insurance documentation. Works fine when hard cabled, but not what I wanted & not what the product is advertised as capable of doing.

The printer works wells at its basic function, to print. This only applies when you use the teeny tiny little short cord that they include in the package. It was a pain in the butt to set up for the wireless connection, when printing big jobs wirelessly (6-8 pages) it will stop in mid print and be done with it. It will give you an error notification, but when clicked on it will re-direct you to the printer home page. I tried printing off one page this afternoon 4 times and finally dug out the little cord. It prints fine with the cord, but this is supposed to be a wireless printer. (I know some would assume that I have weak/slow wifi, but I have good wifi and the only things connected to it are the the printer itself and the laptop that I was trying to print from.) They have this same model (with a real cord included) for ten dollars less that does not have the wireless printing capabilities and now I wish I would have got that one. Save yourself the time and ten dollars and don't buy this printer.

Purchased on June 4,2014 I just had to write this review for us Apple people..This was the easiest and I mean the easiest wireless hookup..Before I even ran the CD it had already picked up my wireless...We all know this can be a hit and miss but this was a HIT for me. The only technical problem was and it was not really when it showed the printer it said that it was HP2540 and I just made a technical decision to just go with it and it worked perfectly even though the printer that I have is HP2542. I am just so happy that I chose this one. Another reason I wanted HP was that even if you run out of colored ink you can still print with black ink. I had an Epson before and you had to have both to print and I hated that. I have already tested using my iPhone and it worked perfectly...Have not with iPad however I am sure if the other two worked it will work too. I also purchase the 2year extended warranty. I will give you a month update....

When I was first looking at this printer, I had my doubts about buying it due to some of the reviews I've read on it.. But it offered everything I wanted in a printer at a good price so I chose to buy it anyways... And I'm glad I did. The first thing I printed was my tax documents, which printed just fine when i chose to "fit to page" (but I've read that others had issues with this). Then I tested the photo quality. When I printed photos with a lower dpi, the print quality wasn't that great, as expected... But when I printed my photos with higher dpi (200+) the print quality was excellent. I was able to set up and print in just about 5-10 minutes... And another great reason to choose this particular printer (or an HP Printer in general) is the affordability of the ink! So I'm definitely glad I bought this printer !

What a disappointment.

We thought this little printer would fit our needs. What a disappointment. The setup instructions were confusing and contradictory. Getting it setup was time consuming and more difficult than expected. It's really NOISY. I thought the old Canon was loud until I heard this thing. The print quality for just plain black text is poor. Resetting the print heads helps until the next time you print after cutting it off. The copier chops off part of a regular sized page. It holds very little paper and if you put in one sheet too many it jams. But the absolute deal breaker is after working wirelessly for less than a week it now refuses to print. Following the help directions screwed it up worse so now it only works in "eprint". I have better things to do than trouble shoot a new printer. I'm used to easy setup and forget it printers - especially for the first week. All my previous printers lasted for years. What a total waste of time and money. It's going back tomorrow. Bottom line - If you're used to having a good reliable printer with easy setup and few hassles with good print quality then I would NOT recommend this product.
