Compact and functional
Excellent print quality. Crystal clear scanner. The only drawback is the small paper tray. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
A mix of features
I'd seen a similar model in a store, but bought this on-line not paying quite enough attention to the features. What I purchased has FAX capability -- not something I need, resulting in a lot of extraneous buttons and phone cable ports that I ignore. The connection to our home devices is via USB connection to one desktop computer, but other devices can print wirelessly. I'd expected a LAN connector -- but there wasn't one. The paper tray accommodates a variety of paper sizes, but switching is inconvenient. To print a legal sized page or an envelope, I must remove the paper tray, empty it of its 8.5X11" paper and load the different size. A single sheet bypass would have been a nice feature.
All that said -- the printer makes good quality copies at a reasonable speed. I like the printer's low energy sleep mode when it's not being used. The scanning software is simple to use. It's possible to make copies directly from the printer without using a program on my desktop computer. Having both a sheet feeder that handles multiple pages along with a flatbed scanner is convenient. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Seems reliable but lacking in documentation
The printer came nicely (recycleable!) packaged, and quickly.
However the reference manual asked the user to refer to the User Manual, which did not come with the printer. I found it finally on the HP site. The instructions for wireless hookup did not work (it said to press certain buttons which were not on my printer), luckily my Mac "discovered" it. And I had to find how to copy and scan digging through the manual. I think there should be a short users manual in the box with the most used features explained.

I bought this last week and it has been a lifesaver. It Scan works great. The print speed is a little slower than I would like. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Great printer, works and prints well. Just we needed for our office. Only down side is I didn't know that the paper tray sticks out and stays like that which is kind of silly, but all-in-all what we needed. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
i need to print B&W but cannot figure how to do that. i went through my PC but the printer overrules it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Inconsistently works with HP chromebook
I purchased this printer for our homeschooling and it has been a challenge to get it to work consistently. Worked through HP support and still finicky. You would imagine that a HP products would be more compatible. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Not exactly what I expected
I bought this printer about month ago and have discovered it's not as good as I hoped it to be. Printing double sided is a nightmare, I'm not a fan of the paper try not fully going back in after opening. Hard to set up WiFi printing and mobile printer. Takes forever to print black and white pages. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Does not use 5G!!!
Scanner function is really slow, probably because it can't use 5G. Really disappointed in getting a new printer that was rated well in Consumer Reports, but can't use the latest speed available. Does stay connected to the internet, which is why I replaced my old HP InkJet.
