I've ALWAYS preferred HP products; I've owned their desktops, monitors and printers. My previous printer was the HP PSC1315v. It performed well. Everything has an eventual breaking point and my printer's was yesterday. After determining it was a hardware issue and would need servicing, I decided to look at Walmart.com to compare new vs. servicing. I looked at several brands--Canon, Kodak, Epson, etc.--but for features, I kept coming back to the HP Officejet 4500 Print, Scan, Copy & Fax. The price was quite affordable too--$69.00--and had the dimensions required for my desk area. I made sure the ink cartridges were affordable and readily available online and in-store. Since I'm familiar with HP's installation procedure it was a breeze. In fact, I didn't even use the provided power/USB cables because my old printer's cables were hot-swappable. One drawback I noticed, was the folding, extendable paper tray...if one were to be reckless with it, the tray could possibly break. However, this is not a show-stopper for me. I simply made a mental note to be careful when sliding the tray back in! I did PLENTY of research and read MANY reviews from people like you so I've considered all reviews and opinions. Now, keep in mind I've only had this printer less than a week so if I have any issues, rest assured I'll be coming back to let you know. However, at this point, I'm completely satisfied with Hewlett-Packard for quality and Walmart for prices!
