HP printers and Vista - apparent incompatability
by lisamnz - 6/4/09 9:19 PM
Just a warning for anyone planning to run an HP printer with Vista, particularly the L7380 all-in-one and probably any L7000 series. After 2 weeks I've just returned mine and replaced it with a Canon.
For the 1st week the printer wouldn't work at all, until eventually after hours on the phone someone at HP found some spooler problems. The HP then worked, but no other printer driver did - including a Brother that had worked fine before, and a pdf printer. Also had limited options printing pdf files. I checked before buying the printer if it would work with Vista - no problems, it comes with a Vista install CD.
In comparison I've just plugged the Canon in, installed driver, and off it goes. No issues at all.
