- DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER
1. The wireless connection will work for about a day or two.
2. Both my laptop and my desktop can sometimes not detect the software.
3. If you run low on any ink cartridge, it will not print at all no matter how much ink is left in the other cartridges. This is, according to the print screen, to ensure "printer health." ...more info
- Sets up easily with Ubuntu Linux.
I set this printer up with Ubuntu 8.04 by plugging it into my router with an Ethernet cable. I ran hp-setup and that's it. Could not have been easier....more info
- Great quality
Great quality and features, especially the wireless capability. For the price, this a real winner....more info
- Wow! Full featured, great price, easy wireless setup
This was purchased to replace an 5 year-old, still-working --but rather quirky-- Epson color printer (that Epson couldn't be bothered to write Vista drivers for. This is used primarily to print photos. I've seen the other reviews with issues on this. Especially in a Windows environment, anything can happen, but: for me --on a new Vista machine-- installation was quick and flawless.
Many great features. You can connect via USB, wireless (accepts multiple computers as input machines) or Ethernet. It was immediately recognized by my router and connected to the network (the printer and router are within six feet of each other; expect distance to be an issue for both data transfer rate and maintaining connectivity if they are not co-located).
This machine has a built in reader for most digital media cards, and a front USB port that allows you to view and print images from a USB drive. It can move images from a card to the or can print directly from a card/USB drive that it is reading. The touch screen LCD offers intuitive menu functions when printing without using a PC.
Prints --using each of Windows, Photoshop and the printer's properties offerings are crisp and clear on HP Premium plus paper.
- Not Perfect but a Keeper - Use advanced options with caution
My need and experience with this product is limited to wired network connectivity with Windows XP, although the product has wireless network and USB capability. Photos printed were from a Canon 30D SLR camera.
After tweaking some settings in the printer properties, I am mostly satisfied for now with the photo printing results. Text printing looks great and photo printing better than most of my prior HP printers but still not as good as photo lab printing although I do have more control over how the results look than when using a lab. I think the photo printing is somewhat inferior to my old HP Photosmart 7550 printer before it broke, which is what this one is replacing.
Problems and solutions --
1. Used older HP Photo Plus Premium paper for photos. The printer did not detect this and printed as though on regular paper making the photo look extremely grainy. Solution was to create a printing shortcut in the printer properties specifying the paper type, size, etc. The shortcuts are more convenient than setting each parameter separately each time you print.
2. Even with the proper paper settings, the photos were still somewhat grainy and some had many horrible streaks running across them. When I selected preview in the printer properties, I noticed the streaks were in the preview. The solution was to turn off the Real Life Technology (RLT) in the printer properties. The RLT modifies the image after you send it to the printer in an attempt to improve its appearance. Depending on its setting it tries to improve focus, improve brightness, inprove contrast, increase sharpening, and increase color saturation. I had already adjusted the image to look good on the computer monitor. This additional adjustment pushed it over the edge, causing streaks, and trying to bring the otherwise (intentional) beautiful background blur into focus, which just made it grainy instead. Turning off the "RLT" in the printer properties for the same image fixed this problem in the preview and on the photo itself. You might want to use the RLT feature with caution if you purchase this product.
3. Even with RLT turned off, there were mild streaks and grain running orthoganal to the print direction near the leading edge of borderless print. HP FAQ on their web site suggests cleaning and if that does not work to simply print with a white border to avoid what they refer to as a defect. A brand new printer should not need cleaning but printing with a border fixed my problem, which was really not bad enough to be concerned about. It is just not quite as perfect as I would have liked or as I have had in the past.
4. Installation conflicted with my old HP Officejet 7310 printer resulting in a lockup. After a few hours of disconnecting printers and reinstalling old and new drivers, both printers are now working fine with the new software. Installation went very smoothly on pc's without these old drivers.
5. Photos appeared darker than on my computer monitor although my monitor had been calibrated by software for brightness, contrast, and color and also the monitor properly displays the photos without adjustment. I wanted to print photos straight from the camera using my pc without adjustment to the image. The solution was to use the handy customizable shortcuts in the printing properties color tab to increase brightness on photos only. After doing this, whether or not I modified the images on the pc, photos appear virtually identical on the print as they do on the computer monitor. It required about eight 4x6 test photo prints to obtain this calibration but the results are astounding. Once I make the picture look exactly the way I like on the computer monitor, I can now print with confidence that the printed photo will look the same. With these adjustments, most photos print at the proper brightness with no modifications by the pc. As mentioned above, this only works for me with "RLT" turned off. Only the brightness required adjustment. The color tones were spot-on with the monitor.
Overall, the printer is producing very good photos and page printing now that some of the advanced automatic features have been turned off and the brightness has been calibrated to the computer monitor....more info
- Excellent printer value with stunning photo output.
1. Very inexpensive initial investment and cost per page is very low with aftermarket paper and ink. An excellent value. Amazon sells compatible ink and paper for significantly less than HP genuine through it's partners. Costco paper is $[...] for 300 sheets of 4X5" making the cost per page less than 10c.
2. Absolutely stunning photo prints which are true to Photoshop/pantone color display. Very vibrant.
3. Easy to set up and use.
2. The included software is loaded with bloatware, nagware and mostly useless stuff which is very hard to remove. I really suggest to just load the printer driver.
Other thoughts and suggestions;
I set it up using wireless. If you have encrypted wireless, you will need your password.
Directly inserted media (USB or flash cards) must contain files in .jpg basic native format. If you alter the photos and save them as .jpg ICC format or anything other than basic, the printer won't recognize or print them, though it will say files are present. It does recognize .bmp (bitmap) photo files. Any picture your digital camera will recognize and display on it's LCD will print from inserted media. This does not apply to printing from your computer.
Be careful to preview the pictures and select the proper format from the printer settings menu when printing from your computer. There are a lot of selections of paper size, type, format and orientation. The printer software will know which tray to use automatically.
When setting up, put in the ink and add paper to the 8.5X11 and 4X6 trays before the setup or it will possibly hang and need a reboot. When installing the software, use the "advanced" or "custom" checkboxes, else ALL the junkware will load. Uncheck all but the driver (which can't be unchecked) when prompted to select what you want to install.. You have been warned!
- GREAT PRINTER!
This is a great product. works excellent wireless. I have it hooked up through a cable from my router and can print wirelessly from all over my residence. my roommate also has one and never had a problem with signals or anything. also works well without being connected to the router. the pictures are great so far. i've used both the advanced and premiere plus paper for photos and texts prints out super fast. the touch screen is very handy in working with large photos because most aren't shot in pixel form that is 4x6 or whatever size you are printing so you can just move and zoom a square over what it is that you want to print. highly recommended whether you want the wireless function or not. also a huge plus is the individual printer cartridges, they last a long time i've printed a lot of photos. don't buy the photo pack that comes with paper though the ink is not the same that comes with the computer nor what you pay extra for. its kinda a rip off. the paper is also inexpensive if you shop around. overall buy this you won't be disappointed. ...more info
This printer is awesome. I have had many printers but this is by far the best yet, very fast, very clear and the pictures quality is great, even on the fastest print setting. I think my favorite part is the individual ink cartridges which can be bought straight through the company for less then $10.00, so when you run out of one color you don't have to replace the tri color which is still full of 2 other colors....more info
- This printer sucks.
I have had this printer for four months. It has worked approximately twice. I have definitely spent many more hours trying to get the piece of junk to function that I have actively spent using it. First it would not install correctly. Then the help was totally useless. The final straw was getting the (apparently INFAMOUS) "carriage jam" error message. The printer will no longer function at all, and, though HP will replace it, I have to pay for the shipping to do so. The printer is definitely not worth the money it would cost to mail it away.
STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU NEVER BUY THIS PRODUCT. I will not be supporting HP in any fashion in the future. ...more info
- Craig Olson's Review of HP D7460
The product performs well. Photo print color is brilliant and sharp. The worst part was configuring the wireless feature. Nowhere in the documentation does it say anything about adding a printer with the IP address of the machine. I made several calls to tech support and none of the technicians instructed me to add a printer. A tech savvy friend figured it out for me. ...more info
