I just want to print and scan documents, basically. I rarely print photos. I picked this printer because it does those things, and only uses 4 ink cartridges, unlike some of the higher-priced photo inkjets, which use 5 or 6. Print quality and scan quality have been satisfactory. Setup went smoothly, after I realized it was going to keep printing an alignment page until I finished the alignment process by scanning it. It is easy to load paper and ink, and it works with my 11-year-old router. I was very happy to find that it will print with only one cartridge installed - handy when you run out of one. My one complaint so far is that it does not work well with Windows Photo Viewer for printing pictures from my computer. The page layouts just didn't coordinate, so I got one 4x6 print on an entire letter sheet of photo paper. Next time I'll try putting my photos into a Word document or something to get more than one on a page.
The Hallmark greeting card program that came with it was a nice bonus.

My co-worker bought this printer, he couldn't figure out how to hook up the wireless, I finally figured it out, horrible instructions. I bought one for my home only because it was $50. (couldn't beat that) Since I was familiar with the hook-up I was able to do a little faster than the first. I installed it, put it in the room, and turned off to save power. When it was time to print, I turned it on and clicked print. ...nothing! I went back made sure the wireless button was lit, and tried again. it said my printer was offline. I'm returning it and getting a different one. This printer is not user friendly at all!

Terrific Printer/Very Reasonable Price

By CBS

from Long Island, NY

Verified Buyer

Comments about HP Deskjet 2542 Inkjet All-in-One:

This printer is sooooo easy to use. Can be connected directly to your computer (hard-wired) or wirelessly to your laptop or any other device.
Easy to set default printing preferences. Scans directly to a PDF, so it's not necessary to purchase the software. Great for home use! Setting it up is very simple. Take it out of the box, plug in power cord, install software from CD. I was printing within 5 minutes. It's really a "no brainer". Ink # is the same for color and black/white. One less thing to remember. The only negative is that the cord that connects it to the PC is short...about 4 feet.... so it needs to be right next to the computer.

Comments about HP Deskjet 2542 Inkjet All-in-One:

I usually buy HP printers. This is a simpler model than I've purchased in the past, because it is serving a second/back up device. I haven't used it enough to know if it is reliable.

Comments about HP Deskjet 2542 Inkjet All-in-One:

I have only had this printer running for a day but it has all of the perks that I was loking for, I can automaticaly scan to pdf. and that is one of the things I lost when I went to windows 7 and my old hp printer.
this unit is quiet and very nice print even in draft mode.
worth the money.
