This is the third of these printers I have purchased, all three are fast, quiet, and seem well made. The only thing I would change is the footprint, it is a large printer, but this is because of the automatic 2 sided printing. I will probably be purchasing more of these, all the people that have them seem to like them.
I was looking for a reasonably low-cost wireless color printer with superior text and graphics and a low operating cost. The HP Pro8100 met all my expectations. I like the features and the fact that it is very quiet when printing.
The printer functions great. When loading the ink cartridges, the spring where the ink cartridge is pushed up against appears to be cheaply made. Although the printer appears to be running fine so far. No problems with the install on my laptop. I did have a problem installing for wireless using my PC with the Windows 7 Ultimate OS. Worked with HP on three visits. We finally were able to install it with the basic drivers as the CD drivers wouldn't work with my OS.
The OfficeJet Pro 8100 is an excellent printer for a small office that needs quality color printing. I have a couple of these working at different customer locations and have never had a problem in several years of operation. For the price and being networkable you really can't beat them.
