Such reviews as above – miss the most irritating things that are just outside reach of testers and hit the real users really hard. I actually own a few of OfficeJet pro from 7500 to 8600 series.

* all of officejet pro printers have horribly overbloated drivers weighting hundrets of megabytes and designed to irritate you with propositions of buying unnecesary things. I really do not understand why HP cannot release a driver for professional use without all the bloatware.

* To make things worse: Officejet pro printer drives are installing BACKDOOR TO YOUR COMPUTER allowing access from outside to files on your computer. This backdoor rootkit installed by HP (without notifying you during installation) is used by their scanning functions. You cannot opt-out to not install such backdoor. You think your PC is protected and – if you did install HP drivers – in fact it is not. I had a correspondence exchange with HP support and they confirm it’ confirm that it cannot be disabled and they don’t care about this.

* the driver has irritating behavior: if you go to word, and select ‘print’ MS word will go stuck on ‘communicating with printer’ dialog for a good minute or two. even though it is perfectly ok to print to print queue even without connection to the printer -sorry. You have to wait for the driver to check if there are no advertisements for buying new inks ready to display on your screen.

* printer’s cost-of-ownership is much higher then stated in reviews. There is a trick used by HP to increase those costs: as soon as you print a couple of pages the printer starts displaying (on it’s display, and what is worse on all computers that are in the same network as soon as they have drivers installed) that there the ink is just about to run out and you have to buy new one. You will always find an idiot in the office who will do this. If somebody does it: HP has you – the inks have as short ‘best before’ date as yoghurt. And as soon as they expire – the printer refuses to print. For some printers it is even worse: as soon as one cartridge is low, the printer advertises also other cartridges as low, and those advertisement do not disapear unless you change ALL the cartridges not only the empty one. This was true for L8620 I am not sure abut 8630.

* even if you make sure to check if the printer is able to print using expired inks – forget it. Firstly the printer requires the user to make abracadabra after each power on (it is NOT explained in the popup message on the printer that you CAN actually bypass this message and power the equipment on). Secondly HP introduced smart bug in the driver firmware that whenever there is a printer with expired materials in your network the network driver will hang print queue on Windows system (and some mac-os x machines) and you have to actually restart print queue with manually run macro on PC before EVERY print job.

* some of the printers (including the OfficeJet Pro L7500 and L7600 series) have glitch in drivers and the printer does not print the last few kilobytes from the last page of the document. So often documents get printed without a few last lines of text. I didnt notice it on 8610 yet but on a new L7xxx it was not present too and was introduced with some drivers upgrade

* there are bugs in SNMP software for the printers making it impossible to read real state of consumables (it is giving false results on ink levels) – for instant officejet pro series.

This is real user experience with HP printers and the problem is that such reviews does not tell you this because no tester is really USING the tested equipment.

The problem is in the greed of manufacturers which I really hope will hit them back like fiddling with engine computer hit Volkswagen. I hope HP will loose half of it’s share price before they will realize that at the end of the day they should be earning on good reputation and not on cheating of the users to make them buy more unnecesary new printers and inks which lay completely new but expired in trash bins.

Left HP behind a Long time ago because of ALL the things you mention. RIP- OFF INK PRICES, SILLY SUBSCRIPTIONS, CONTROL OF YOUR PRINTING HABITS, GARBAGE DRIVERS ETC ETC. HP have no interest in their customer needs other than to generate profit for themselves like most inkjet printer makers.
I decided to go to a Samsung Mono Laser printer 2 years ago, best thing I ever did. Prints are instant and lighting fast, no driver hassles, toner ink seems to last for ever. I had an expensive Canon Printer before this and it was the same as the HP printers Gobbling up ink at an alarming rate, it failed after 13 Months only having gone through 2 set of cartridges. GOODBY TO INKJET and GOOD RIDDANCE.
