Software will not install
Strengths: How would I know
Weakness: Installation, from the provided CD, hangs, every time.
I've spent a lot of time trying to install the software provided on the CD. It hangs, apparently for no reason. No network activity -- so it's not waiting for a download; no disk/CD reader activity -- so it's not reading media.
Software installed fine on my wife's XP Pro; refused to install (ever) on my Windows Mediacenter.

7210 ADF problems
Strengths: It does everything it is supposed to do most of the time; price is reasonable
Weakness: the ADF is weak and fails consistantly, this is the 4th unit I have had.
I purchased my first 7210 in September of 2005. The ADF (automatic document feeder) failed after 2 months and would not feed properly, jamming faxes and feeding more than one page at a time. It was still under warranty so they replaced it. It was great for about 9 months and it started again with the ADF (feeding and jamming). They replaced that unit in November of 2006 and it was ok for another...

I purchased my first 7210 in September of 2005. The ADF (automatic document feeder) failed after 2 months and would not feed properly, jamming faxes and feeding more than one page at a time. It was still under warranty so they replaced it. It was great for about 9 months and it started again with the ADF (feeding and jamming). They replaced that unit in November of 2006 and it was ok for another 9 months when became symptomatic again. I had purchased an extended warranty which was what saved me. They just replaced it for the third time again in November of 2007 (seems like every year in November I have to work on it again). The max copy/fax number is 5,000 but I do about 300 copies/faxes every month so that's not it. After going through the repair instructions (reset at least 6 times and cleaning with a lint free cloth and distilled water) from both online and by phone, they do send another one right out.
Phone Tech support can be difficult depending on whom you reach. Many have a heavy East Indian accent which creates more frustration by adding communication problems to the already compromised techno knowledge I possess. After asking to speak to the supervisor, we got the problem fixed but not until after the tech argued with me about my extended warranty program and after going through the manual of questions i.e. operating system, hookup, etc, etc. They did find it after I gave them the warranty number.
Jamie is a bright star though, he got right to the problem and made my day; he was in tech support somewhere in the world and actually listened to my complaint; I received that unit the very next day! However, this unit is remanufactured, not refurbished so i inherited someone else's problems. It will not scan or send pictures with the picture cards. It jams and tears up documents. After speaking numerous times with tech support, they are finally sending me another one which I have high hopes. I have had a 1320 laser jet that has been absolutely problem free and I make tons of copies on it.
I will buy HP again, however, will do research about the unit before I replace this one (after the warranty goes out). I suggest you keep a log of when you called, whom you talked to, what they said and keep your serial number and phone numbers handy in your user guide. That’s what saved me!

Officejet 7210 All In One
Strengths: All in One, everything there. While some dislike the software, it worked fine for me and I liked how well it installed. Of course, I had the G85 before and it was a nightmare. Network is great.
Weakness: All in one, if one thing fails, it is trash. Doc feeder is too frail and jams frequently. I had to work on it several times. The 7210 died at 22 months and is now trash.
Good points: __ Networking worked well and seamlessly. Running both network and USB connections had no issue, other than the USB connection could not be found about 20% of the time. __ I liked the software. The scanning was easy. The OCR worked well. Pictures scanned well. Printing was good. __ Pictures printed well, with good color and clarity. __ I liked scanning pictures. The thing would even...

Networking worked well and seamlessly. Running both network and USB connections had no issue, other than the USB connection could not be found about 20% of the time.
I liked the software. The scanning was easy. The OCR worked well. Pictures scanned well. Printing was good.
Pictures printed well, with good color and clarity.
I liked scanning pictures. The thing would even do real one-button scanning, which the old Officejet G85 promised but couldn't do.
The fax worked well in the beginning, but we did have a few problems getting it to connect and go through a month ago. Also, it had issues picking up lately.
HP Chat was always available.
Reliability. That is something HP meant years ago with LaserJet. We have a 13 year old LaserJet that still runs, after countless cases of paper through it.
The 7210 is too fragile and frail to be real. I'm afraid I'll break it each time I open the printer to replace ink cartridges. About 20% of the time, my computer can't find it, even hooked on the USB.
The document feeder is jamming or not feeding most of the time. HP guys told me how to take it apart to get it running a couple of times, but the sad part is, it is just too weak and frail to be of any real good. It is definitely unreliable, and isn't the point of a document feeder so you can set a stack in and let it run?
Sadder is that real faxing requires the document feeder and any real copying requires it, too.
Printing has had a few problems, too. If you run into issues, try power off, hold # and 6, plug in the power cord and turn on. Wait for Semi-Full Reset or something like that. If it is software, you may get it running again.
HP chat is available, but they are not too in depth in troubleshooting. Or it could be that there isn't anything to troubleshoot. They know it either works or is dead and that is about it. Disposal items. Buy, use, throw away. So far, no one really showed a lot of technical expertise except one guy who did clue me on how to work on the document feeder. Everyone else would leave me on hold for a long time and give a few basic steps before saying it needed HP Service.
Today, it died completely. Turned it on, all lights began flashing. Reset won't work. 22 months old and it is now worthless junk for the dump.
HP gave me a "great" offer of "upgrading" to a 7310 for only $299. Considering the 7210 and 7310 are virtually the same, I can't see paying $300 for a machine that will last 2 years at most and it already 2 years old.
They didn't offer any of their others, meaning they simply want to unload their old unsold junk on victims like me.
Can I recommend the 7210 or HP? No!

Poor Quality & Service
Strengths: All you need in one piece of equipment
Weakness: If you have a problem you can loose everything
I purchased the HP 7210 because I thought that I would get quality and service - how wrong can you be. The printer is just 18 months old and has a page count of 1320 and is only used for light domestic use. Recently I started getting an error message indicating that "the cartridges were not intended for this printer" - I did think that this was a little strange as it had functioned perfectly on...

I purchased the HP 7210 because I thought that I would get quality and service - how wrong can you be.
The printer is just 18 months old and has a page count of 1320 and is only used for light domestic use. Recently I started getting an error message indicating that "the cartridges were not intended for this printer" - I did think that this was a little strange as it had functioned perfectly on these cartridges for some months. Thinking that the cartridges were at the end of their life I changed them and this rectified the problem for 2 pages when the message appeared again. I thought that I may have had faulty cartridges so I changed them again only to experience the same problem.
I then went through the HP Help Desk who told me to clean the contacts and reset the printer - when this didn't work I was told to change the cartridges again. When this didn't work I was informed that it was a hardware problem and that I should contact a Premium Rate Help Line. Realising that all they were going to do was to make more money from my problem I decided to contact Customer Services who were sympathetic but indicated that there was nothing they could do as it was not a known problem. A search on the Internet soon revealed similar problems from other owners - so much for an unknown problem.
Consider my experience of HP against that of Bosch when my Dishwasher malfunctioned. It was two years old and out of guarantee when I had a problem and I called out their Service Agent who diagnosed a faulty thermostat - this was replaced but did not cure the problem. I rang Bosch who indicated that the problem that I had was quite rare and it was down to a faulty motor - I thing they heard me gasp as I could imagine that it was going to be expensive - "don't worry they said we will replace the motor and refund the costs that you have already incurred - we would not expect a motor to fail in this short space of time" - it was replaced and a cheque was sent within 3 days and the washer is now perfect.
I think you can probably guess who I would deal with in the future - not HP that's for certain.

Don't get this
Strengths: It is an office jet
Weakness: The cartridge carriage broke after one year
The cartridge carriage is a common problem. Call HP and they offered no replacement parts and they told me to send the broke printer back to them, paid them USD280.00 and they will send a "refurbished" print (same model) back to me. What a bargin!!!
