HP Deskjet 2700 Series

I purchased this printer about a month ago and I also signed up for the program to receive free ink for a few months. Following this time period if the program is not cancelled it costs I believe $3.99 per month. I haven't decided yet yet if I'll continue the program and pay the monthly fee yet. I'm going to see how much printing I actually do over the few months to consider whether the program would be cheaper than purchasing my ink on an as-needed basis.
So far I haven't had any issues with it, the set up was very easy and fast, I downloaded the HP app onto my Mac laptop and use this for settings, options, etc. It prints well and quickly.
The only issue I've come across is that I don't believe it supports double-sided printing, which is something I hadn't thought of looking into prior to purchasing it. There are some documents I would prefer to use less paper for by printing double-sided, but in the end I haven't found this to be a big enough issue to consider it worth removing a rating star for.
Just be aware of this if you purchase this model and this is something you're specifically looking for.
Aside from this I've had no issues so far and have found the printer to be very useful for home usage and I'm glad I made the investment in purchasing it.

HP Smart? More Like HP Intelligent!!

I used this when I first got my first printer, an HP DeskJet 2732. The printer is an ink one. When I used this, it was ezy. Toooo smart for it’s name. Scanning is ezy(good job reforming after HP Easy Scan, which has an overall rating of 2 stars). Printing is ezy. What is with the hate? How is printing/scanning this easy? My dad used a Brother printer when he went to work which used ink and he reportedly said it waaaaaaaay too hard, but then his boss ordered HP ink printers and he said they were ezy to use. I don’t have to MAKE my assignments and complete them for school, I can just easily print them. And submitting them is waaaaaaaaaay too ezy when I scan them. If it doesn’t work for you, then at least tell them why. Write a review at least this long. The Instant Ink isn’t a scam at all. I see many short reviews that look as if they were written by people from companies that are rivals of HP. I would loooooooooooovvvvvvvvveeeeeeeee this app. Only rating it 5 stars because because there wasn’t any option to rate it 100 stars. This app is very very excellent. Now stop giving the software engineers a difficult time at HP. You must admit it. Very great app.

I’m not a person who is paid to write reviews. I’m a kid who is thankful for HP for making my life easier at school. Kudos to HP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HP has come along way with their products and the software that runs them. I've owned a HP Officejet Pro 8620 for about 2 years now. I used to cringe at installing or even updating HP drivers and software, but over the last 3-4 years installing, as well as updating their software has been truly seemless. Their quality has certainly improved vastly and continues too.
My wife works with individuals with special needs and she likes to print out worksheets to complete some of these individuals goals at the center that she is employed with. These worksheets strengthen hand eye coordination, basic math skills, money counting, and sentence structure. She prints a lot and she has never had any issues with either her phone or her laptop communicating with the printer....EVER. She is not the most tech savvy of individuals and so even she can use their products and integrate them into her daily life. I recommend their products, whole heartedly. As a Field Engineer at Intel Inc. I use their products at work and my home and I their software improves with each update. You can trust HP again.
