This printer was for me a work horse for at least 8 years. It functioned as designed and needed no repairs or maintenance. I used it for work and family related projects. Every function was used regularly (even the fax-before e-mail became more prevalent). I wish all the printers today were built to last as long. (read more)

HP PSC 500 is a very good printer, there is nothing bad I can say about it, the ink consumption is great, the size, weight and looks of the printer are all practical and cool. Great price and one of the best printers I have ever had I love it, well recommend this HP printer over all its competitors. (read more)

This Hewlett Packard PSC 500 Inkjet printer has consistently given excellent printing and reliability for the past 3+ years that I have had it using varying OS (Win98, Win2000 and WinXP). I am a very satisfied customer. (read more)

Hewlett Packard support/help is so very difficult to get to. I found a page where I could describe my problem (my installation disk is cracked - I did it). When I finally did, and told them I wanted a replacement disk, all I found out was that I would have to buy one. Didnt say where or how. (read more)

This is my 2nd PSC500. The first went back cos the printing had horizontal streaking. The 2nd one is the same. Have tried all the usual head cleaning & even tried different makes of cartridges & it still streaks. Checked the web site too. It's better on the photocopying side of things. Any suggestions...the bin perhaps? (read more)

I have just wrestled with the HP PSC 500 for a client running Windows 2000 for 3 days. This has been the most horrible experience I've had with HP. Buyer beware! (read more)

After printing a few lines generated from my computer, my Hewlett Packard PSC-500 inkjet printer says two way communication with my printer has been interrupted. I've had it with both Gateway and Hewlett Packard. My local repair person tested both pieces of equipment and got them working together for a whole two weeks. I was still getting the error messages but it printed anyway. I just can't afford a service charge every two weeks to get the bugs worked out. Gateway and HP have been no help... (read more)

The Hewlett Packard PSC-500 inkjet printer's colour copy function is incredible but it will only take 4 ink refills before you come to the same cost as a new PSC 500. That, HP, is a rip-off.
DON'T BUY a PSC 500 unless you really like it because the ink is VERY VERY VERY expensive! (read more)

The latest problem is that it won't print - it tells me to "remove and check color cartridge" - which I have done and even fitted a new cartrdge but it STILL tells me the same thing - it's a piece of **** (read more)

I decided to upgrade and formatted. Installed 2000. Could not get my PSC 500 to work. I went to their website, downloaded articles, followed directions but to no avail. I contacted their support team via email and explained that I followed instructions of article xyz. Their response was that I should download article xyz and follow those instructions. I have sent other emails but the bottom line is, they aren't all that interested in helping. As far as I know, the all-in-one does not... (read more)

I purchased this printer to replace my ageing Laser printer which was no longer cost effective to repair. The OS I use is Win 98 SE. The supplied instructions for the PSC 500 are straightforward to understand and software installation is a doddle. The printer was up and running in about 8 - 10 minutes and this included unpacking. Copy and scan functions are effected at the touch of a single button and my 12 year old daughter mastered this in 10 seconds flat. The provided software is... (read more)

I bought this combined HP inkjet Printer / Scanner / Copier because it was advertised as compatible with Windows 2000 and had a flatbed scanner / copier. I thought it was a really good product and could help me with my home business as it is the only combined product of exactly this kind on the market. Not so! I found out to my cost that it is not compatible with Windows 2000 and I have been put through the corporate mangel to HP's discredit. Consumer be warned you will never get this... (read more)
