We purchased the HP Photsmart B209a. I have Windows XP, Service Pack 3 on my Dell Inspiron 1501. This printer will NOT print! We have been trying to get it to print properly for 3 weeks! ESET virus protection interferes with the HP printer software and the printer disconnects itself from the internet, shows as online in the control panel at random, and randomly prints multiple copies of documents. Also, when I try to print something, the documents don't show in the printer queue. After 3 weeks, my patience with this hunk of scrap has expired. If it weren't for my fiance, I would have slammed this piece of trash into the wall by now.
This printer has caused nothing but frustration and is nothing more than a dust-collector at this point. It is WORTHLESS and a WASTE of MONEY. The mental midgets who dreamed of this model at HP should be ashamed that they mass-produced this useless piece of junk.
I went out and bought a Canon printer tonight for $32. Guess what--it prints. I will NEVER buy an HP printer!
