Many Hewlett-Packard printers have consistently received positive reviews from users on Amazon.com, BestBuy.com and Staples.com.

For example, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8610 Wireless All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer has been called sturdy, easy-to-use and effective by reviewers. The HP Envy 4520, OfficeJet 4630 and LaserJet Pro P1102w have received similar reviews from users.
Some of the common negative reviews received by HP printers include issues with faulty parts and relatively expensive brand-name ink. Certain printers, such as the OfficeJet 4630, have received reviews indicating poor print quality. Additionally, several of the lower-end and consumer-targeted printers have received complaints from reviewers about slow printing. Some of the printers' touch screen controls have been panned as inferior to those on competitors' printers.
Many HP printers have received reviews praising the easy setup process. The printers typically come with simple, mostly graphical instructions and very few cables. Nearly all of the brand's more recently released printers can be connected to computers using Wi-Fi, USB and even cloud printing, a fact that has been repeatedly praised in customer reviews. Despite some complaints, reviewers typically indicated that these and other positive attributes outweigh any negatives.
