Wow! Best printer- everrrrrCost effective way to print large documents (80+ pages) as well as excellent photo printing quality.
Cost a little more initially but the ink tanks last so much longer than cartridges.
Was simple to set up and link to all devices (laptop, Android, iPhone, macbook)
Highly recommend Show details
Solid PrinterI needed a replacement for my Canon TS9060 which had served me well for over 5 years. I reviewed my ink usage and determined that I had spent over $120 per year buying cheaper compatible cartridges. With this in mind, I decided to go for a large tank printer with cheaper ink costs which should save me money in the long run. I also wanted a printer that could printer double-sided (duplex). None of the Canon large tank printers in my price range (less than $500) printed duplex, so I ended up looking at Hewlett Packard and chose the Smart Tank 700... Read more5 All-in-One which I bought for $448. Estimates ink usage is $54 per year. The physical setup was very straightforward with the installation of the two printer heads (black and colour) and filling the reservoirs with ink. The WiFi setup was rather frustrating as I have a Windows 7 operating system without the drivers required to run the printer. After a few failures finding the right drivers online, I finally found the right ones and the WiFi was able to detect the printer. After that, I was able to send print jobs from my PC without issue. I found later that I should have created an account with HP before trying to configure my software, as the support area within the account had all the drivers and software required to run the printer and scanner specific to my operating system. The account dashboard also allowed me to register my printer directly and interrogate the printer setup configuration, including firmware versions and page count. Positives: Worked perfectly after installing printer heads and ink; Ink loading is impressive with valves within the ink bottles which integrate with the tops of the tanks to fill up without spillage; Fast printing with the printer on standby with little delay; duplex printing; Copy & scanning work well; relatively small dimensions; large paper tray which can hold 240 sheets of A4; good support from HP who corrected my warranty period, and followed up with me directly to ensure my satisfaction; user support with device dashboard providing useful resources for printing, copying and scanning; cheap ink which lasts for thousands of pages. Negatives: The control panel is a bit simplistic and some functions require pressing two buttons simultaneously which is not obvious. However, functions can be operated from the PC interface; although the paper tray is quite big, there is no indication of how much paper is left remaining. I feel that this could be solved by having a clear window in the front of the paper tray to show the amount of paper. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend this printer.
Questions & Answers
Will the smart tank 7005 print on light cardboard such as 176gsm? thanks, as I print certificates.
I can't really answer your question as I have no experience with light cardboard. But, the paper feed bends the paper as it draws it from the paper tray so cardboard may be too stiff or thick... Read more
