Do not buy Printers from Hewlett-Packard!

Hewlett-Packard has a long history with printers. These printer models usually have a very good support for printing with GNU/Linux systems. The hardware lasted long, and the printers had a good performance record for office printing. This era is gone now. Hewlett-Packard does not sell printers any more, or at least that is their plan. The company has announced a new plan for renting printers. Printing 50 pages per month will cost you USD 8.99 per month. If you need to print more, then you will have to pay more. Furthermore, HP also wants to own most of the data you print. The terms of service include this little gem:

Subject to the terms of this Agreement, You hereby grant to HP a non-exclusive, worldwide,
royalty-free right to use, copy, store, transmit, modify, create derivative works of and
display Your non-personal data for its business purposes.
Essentially this is grand theft data. Almost any other printing solution allows you to print more then 50 pages per month without being spied upon.

We say goodbye to all the HP printer models and other hardware. Let's make HP's dream come true. Never own an HP printer again. We have removed HP products from our support portfolio. We can recommend alternative solutions and help you to move to product from other, more business-friendly vendors.
