Purchased this printer based on majority of reviews saying it's a good printer for the price; got it on sale $35.00, bonus was that it's an HP; would match my HP computer & wireless desk set (mouse/keyboard). The scanner is annoying. Sounds like an electric razor-the zzzzrrrrhhhrrr, was ridiculous & the bar bounces back & forth because there were no ink cartridges inserted. Can't seem to have the cartridges out without glitches. Then it somehow got set to wireless. Impossible to revert back to "usb" connection, it would recognize; kept telling me to plug in USB & set up network later. All this after ONE scan. Only remedy was to UNINSTALL the print software, do a registry clean, restart my computer & reinstall. No way, I put it back in the package & ordered the CANON pixma (same price). SAVE your time & money unless you like tinkering & don't mind a BUZZSAW for a printer.

I purchased HP printer a 4 in 1 about 8 years ago. It is still working well. As things go, I decided to purchase the above model. I am really happy with the HP Deskjet 2542, and I am very satisfied. When you have a good product that has proven itself, when it comes time to shop for another...it was an easy decision. The quality of the print, the ease of use and the price were completely reasonable. The warranty, and the two cartridges that come with it...make this a very good purchase.  I have no regrets...It is excelletn. Back then and today. I have won twice with HP printers. Thank you.  [please do not print my name, or email. I am ok with the Nickname]

I LOVE this printer! It suits my needs perfectly. Affordable, easy to set up and use. I particularly like the fact that I can set it up in another room and still 'print' without moving my lap top. Excellent product!
