This version of the driver was included on Intel Macs. I've had no problems whatsoever printing wirelessly to my Deskjet 6540 via Airport. I also recently installed this on all 3 PPC Macs in the house, 2 wireless and one ethernet, all via Airport. It's been much better than that POS v2.7, which would stall in the middle of print jobs. No complaints here.

Business Inkjet 1100 now ready to print (and also printing) a lot faster in tiger - double sided and everything is working fine, which wasn't always the case before. Colour options are still a bit arcane, thoug.

I'm not frustrated. I'm not angry. I am FURIOUS!!! If you bought a HP product, poor you. You should have chosen ANY other product. 2 printers, both more than 1 year old print out distorted prints. (They did not do that when they were brand new). Both 2170 and 2175! :( The scanning software refuses to scan, it claims there is not enough disk space, although there is much much more than the estimated size. I CANNOT USE THIS CRAP!

Thanks to the person who said look at what you have first. I looked and my Mac reported 2.7.2 which must have come on my Panther install DVD I any event this is very nice software, We have a pair of HPs on the house (along with an old Apple laser printer) and both work extremely well and economiocally. We've tried Lexmarks and Epsons with less luck. The Lexmarks ate supplies at fast rate and had so-so quality, while the 3 different Epsons printed spectacularly but all proved mechanically unreliable.

I'm very happy with the new driver in Panther. The 2 awfulnesses of the previous versions - misaligned double-sided printing, and taking 20 minutes to print each page - have finally been fixed on my Business Inkjet 1100. Well done HP - though a smack on the bottom for being so insistant last year that my problem wasn't driver-related...

Horray! Again I can again print from my G4 PowerBook (OS 10.4.1) through my airport network to my Deskjet 5650, this capability had been lost for well over a year. Hopefully the printer response to my G% PowerMac (OS 10.4.1) will significantly less erratic than it was with the previous driver.

I have an imac which i've just upgraded to OSX10.3. Ive downloaded these drivers for my hp deskjet 940c printer and they just don't work. The printer is listed in the printer set up utility and is checkmarked. I have it listed in the applications I am running to print from but when I start to print it spools the printing job then a Deskjet notice comes on to say Job Stopped. I downloaded an earlier patch which was to fix that same problem which must have been in OSX10.2 just it case it might sort out my problem in OSX10.3 but it has not worked. I have also run through setting up the printer in Classic to no avail. It all ran so well in OSX10.1. The amount of time it's taking me to try and rectify the problem is driving me round the bend- just thought you should know

We are running 10.3.7 and 10.3.8 with a new 6540. Will not print from Adobe CS applications. ONly gives us a default borderless photo setting and that cannot be changed. Frustraitng seemingly typical HP support Mac. Oh, and the 2.5 driver will not print from any Acrobat newer then Reader 5.1. HP support admitted this to me.

Always use "Best" print quality in OSX when text is involved. "Normal" won't cut it, due to OSX using PDF rendering for print jobs. I had the same problem under OS9 when printing PDF files: text came out horrible. Using "Best" quality clears up the text output.

HP deskjet 5150 Mac OS X 10.3.7 ________________ This is absolute crap. Brand new printer and latest driver, on an OS that's been out for 4 years now, and printing is wretched. Half the time text doesn't print, and it's horrible when it does. Try printing a MapQuest map...the directions don't print (only the icons and map)! HPs work fine on Wintel systems. HP can't (or won't) do a decent job on Mac drivers. Shame!

HP Deskjet 6500 Series & MACINTOSH OS 10.3.6: THE DRIVERS THAT COME WITH 6500 SERIES HP DESKJET PRINTERS "v 2.5 FOR MACINTOSH OS X v10.1.5+" WILL NOT PRINT PDF FILES WITH THE "OPENS WITH" DEFAULT SET TO PREVIEW. UNTIL HP COMES UP WITH AN OS 10.3.6 SOFTWARE UPDATE FOR THE HP 2.5 DRIVERS ACROBAT READER 5 MUST BE SELECTED AS THE "OPENS WITH" DEFAULT TO PRINT PDF FILES ON DESKJET 6540 PRINTER. I had absolutly no problems with my old DJ870Cxi w/ Gateway G6 333mhz. Now that I have gone over to Macs, I'm a "stranger in a strange land". I would appreciate any helpful comments or suggestions on the report above and the questions below. HP got very uptight very quickly regarding this apparent software compatability issue....Saying they will develop the update, when they get around to it... Questions: Does anyone know if this is the driver update for "v 2.5 FOR MACINTOSH OS X v10.1.5+"? Should I take the HP 6540 back to the store & exchange it for a price comparable Epson, while I still can? Is Epson Phone support any better than HP? Are Epson Printers more compatable with Mac OS 10.3.6 than HP's?

Works fine for me on a PB G4 1ghz. Even figured out how to get an HP 5850 wireless to work with airport. Here is a tip, make sure your printer is set to the correct subnet and that your airport has 802.11b and g enabled.

I'm a faithful user of HP printing products, but there seems to be a serious problem with this driver. My Deskjet 895Cse has stopped working after installing it. I am pretty sure it is the driver because I have two 895Cse's and neither will work with the new driver. Also, when I reinstall the old v4.2.5 driver, it works just fine. The problem is that after printing color pages, for example from Safari, the page does not finish printing and eject. I know this is an older printer, but has anyone else had this problem? I have the newest version of the OS with all the current updates (10.3.5), and I am printing with USB, on a dual processor 1GHz PowerMac G4.

A friend of mine gave me an HP deskjet 3520 because it caused so many problems on his Mac, problems that i saw with my own eyes and could not believe. truly WEIRD stuff, everything from kernel panics to the Dock refusing to launch anything... btw, he has a 'Summer 2000' iBook @ 600MHz, running 10.3.4. anyway, i have a G3 iBook @ 900MHz, running 10.3.4 and after installing this 'latest' printer driver package (i never installed any printer drivers when i installed Panther because i had no printer at the time) i have had this HP 3520 powered-on and hooked-up to my iBook for about 24 hours with none of the craziness my friend experienced, the printer functions very well with my Mac. nary a glitch. go figure. who knows.

Seems faster and works well with my DeskJet 970. Be SURE to repair permissions after the install. I don't know why HP cannot get this right, My installation required hundreds of permission repairs to the HP files. Also, why do they ask that you remove the "Printer Setup Utility"? This is an Apple Computer application installed by the system. What I did was to put it in the trash for the HP driver install and then return it to the Utilities folder.

Hi folks! That update works fine on g4/450 - 10.3.4 and DJ 970 CXi. No problems - and it seems a little bit faster now... Well - but that doesen't mean that I agree with all these companies: sell cheap printers and make consumer goods awfully expensive...

BTW who is doing the product design or should I say not doing HP's printer and computer design--it sucks? I mean their product line is sooooo ugly. What happened to HP? Things sure have changed.

Does this version also stop printing if you have a cartridge with low ink level? I had to downgrade from the Panther driver (2.3?) to the Jaguar driver because it would not allow printing at all if the color cartridge was low. Even if the documents was b/w only. Has this been fixed in this version? (I have a Deskjet 930C and 10.3.3)

Version 2.4 fixed a problem in 2.3.1 whereby color vs. greyscale setting was not remember with Presets. However, this completely broke IP Printing, such that my printer cannot be found with HP IP Printing. It can be found only via Appletalk, which I think is slower.

finally I can do what I haven't been able to do with 2.3.1 : double-sided printing in A4 (paper format - European). With 2.3.1, double-sided printing was always greyed out when I had A4 selected, only with US Letter etc. did it work. So for what it's worth, I welcome the update, no complaints...

What a waste! Once a cartridge is low on ink it MUST be replaced even though there may be enough ink left for DOZENS of pages. Nor can you recharge cartridges. The software will still sense the the cartridge is empty. Once this condition is sensed, you cannot print anymore and THERE IS NO OVERIDE! This is nothing more than a scheme from HP to sell more $$$ cartridges. Don't upgrade to this thing and don't buy any more HP printers until it is fixed. I wish I had never upgraded to Panther. I am probably going to have to buy another printer... and it won't be HP.

Don't get it! If you use this driver then as soon as your ink levels show as "low", the printer will refuse to print. If you use recharged toner cartridges which often don't show a level then you will never be able to print. What a con from HP.

had exactly the same experience and have no doubt it is so HP force people to buy over-priced ink. The other upshot of this is that you can no longer use 3rd party ink re-fills because these do not show up as full ink (even when they are full) cartridges. I am extremely p****d of with this because I don't always want to print in colour and don't need to buy colour cartridges when I don't have to. They also got rid of the B&W option in the dialogue box (only grayscale -which uses solour sometimes -and colour). GRRRRRRR.... It's almost worth buying a new printer, given the cost of a new set of cartridges. I'd be getting an Epson next time... (11/15/2003, Version: 2.3.1)

Anyone else noticed this?: under Panther, HP Driver 2.3.1 do not longer show the print-animation while printing in the dock, i.e. it is just shown an (ugly, imho) Deskjet-icon and a sheet of paper. Under Jaguar and earlier Driver-versions you saw an animation in the dock showing the sheets of paper sliding through the printer while exposing the pagenumber of the document printed. Is this a downgrade, a Panther-"accelerating-by-dropping-frames", or am I missing something?

I don't want to spread FUD, but people on several sites (incl. Macfixit) are complaining about a sneaky new "feature" of the 2.3.1 deskjet drivers: they don't allow you to print after the "low on ink" warning. You have to replace the cartridges immediately or the printer will refuse to work. Previous versions (including the 2.2.1 driver that shipped with Jaguar) allowed you to print until the cartridges were really empty (which amounted to more than 200 "extra" pages if you were lucky). This could mean that the new drivers try to force you into buying new HP cartridges even if the old ones are still good for a few print-outs. But it could also mean that they only fix a premature low-on-ink warning. Again, I don't want to jump to conclusions. But until there are more reliable reports available, people who don't need the 2.3.1 driver for Panther compatibility should continue using the older version.

I don't see a problem with this version at all. It works perfectly well, even with a printer not listed (i.e., DeskJet 3420), and on a computer not listed (i.e., MacOS X 10.1.5 on a PowerMac 8600 w/ a 604e CPU). If you're complaining about print quality, use better paper! If you're complaining about speed, get a faster computer! If you're complaining about ease of use, you're doing something WAY wrong! This version works FINE!

I'm very disappointed in HP in recent years. I bought a DJ 845c a few years back, because on the box itself it claimed it supported OS X. After hooking it up to my comp, I found out that it WASN'T. I contacted HP and the reply was that a OS X driver was due in a short while. IF IT'S NOT READY, WHY DOES IT SHOW IT ON THE BOX. Anyway, I just installed the new driver (2.2.1). It fixed the margin problem that I've been having; however, it created another problem. I CAN NO LONGER PRINT ON HP's OWN 4X6 PHOTO PAPER! I've tried tweaking and playing around with the margins and everything. NOTHING WORKED! Anyone out there who knows the trick to make it work, please let me know (duhduhduh51@hotmail.com)

The 2.2.1 drivers still do not fix the issue with the top and bottom page margins on DesktJet printers. Even with these drivers, top and bottom margins are anywhere from 1/4 to 2/3 of an inch off. There are also many lacking features, stability problems, and, when I tested the 2.2.1 drivers with my DeskJet 940c, I found the print spooling, queuing, and transfer to printer speeds to be unacceptably slow, with waits of 15-45 seconds between sending the print command and the printer actually printing single page plain text documents. I have returned to using the open-source CUPS hpijs drivers, available at http://www.linuxprinting.org/macosx/hpijs/ The hpijs drivers offer better support of printer features, and more consistent print output in regards to margins and other settings. Spooling and transfer performance is also great. The hpijs drivers are very similar to GIMP-print, but I find that the hpijs drivers have a better presentation in the print dialog, and support the features of HP DesktJet printers more fully than GIMP-print.

Ver. 2.2.1 causes Apple Mail.app to quit when you try to print an e-mail message. Also, the Preview and PDF buttons lose their labels under certain print dialogue. And there are no performance enhancements with this version. Do not bother. If you try it, at least have Ver. 2.0 available as a back-up.

HP still hasn't managed to get their OS X deskjet driver on par with the Classic drivers. The most basic functionality you'd expect from a printer driver still isn't there after more than two years. You still can't output your pages from last to first page - thanks HP for giving me the zen-like diversion of manually re-arranging 300 pages. There is still no option for double-sided printing (which worked fine in OS 8/9), and most of the time your output preferences mysteriously revert to the default setting. I don't know what's wrong with HP's software division. Their hardware is great and durable, but their drivers are a pain in the a$$. What's the problem? Is there a limitation in the OS X printing architecture that holds them back? Or do they simply not care?

This driver gave the NO MARGIN problem to my HP 960c. SOLUTION: download the driver 2.2 from ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software2/COL3312/pl-11451-2/hp120officemx.hqx Uninstall your old driver (remember to erase it from the print center) and install this one. Will work fine. (remember to add it to the print center) If you want to print quality pictures also install the unix based HPIJS. I have both installed and everything is ok.

I'm also having the 'no top margin' problem with my 960c. Also, I have to send each page of my document to print as a separate job. Even tho the setings say "print entier document', only the first page of any specified job will print. thanks to those of you who left other links - I'll be looking for something else now so I can print.

You can also go to http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php3 They also support a large number of HP printers with drivers that work! (It's free too)

For anyone having trouble with HP Pirnt drivers go to : http://www.linuxprinting.org/macosx/hpijs.html They seem to know how to write divers! Just a little more difficult to install but well worth it. HP should be ashamed...

The Stopped job problems still continues with this latest Driver in OS 10. Still have to turn the 920c printer off & on to print the next job.

The 3320 comes up as an "unsupported printer" and cannot be selected. Tried 2.0f without and then with the 2.0e permissions patch, and the 2.1 driver that came on the CD with the printer -- same in all cases.

I just bought a deskjet 3820 and went straight to the 2.0f driver ignoring the CD in the box. It seems to work fine from the host machine, but when I try to print from a different machine via printer sharing, every app crashes when I try to print. (10.2.3 on host machine, 10.2.2 on client machine.)

For those who got it to work, what did you do? I have not gotten it to work with my 850. I downloaded and installed, restarted; trash hp folder installd and restarted. Installed from system disk and then installed update. The HP 850 still did not show up in the Print Center or List of Printers.

it's not HP who's not supporting serial printers, it's apple who's not supporting the serial PORT! HP has no choice, they don't have an option for supporting the serial printers. i'm sorry you got burned, but i'm sure that you'll find that you'll have much better (and faster) print quality if you upgade to a newer USB printer (be it HP, cannon, epson or even lexmark)

The beginnings of the end of HP have been evident for some time. Nonsupport of seril printers is just one one nai lin the increasingly large box of bad choices HP is making. Sadly said as I have used and mostly admire HP products since the company's earliest days so many years ago. I still am but with an increasing sense of caution - too many models and variations and increaing sense of abandonment of comprehensible small customer communication & support to some sort of unfathomable corpogeek.

Well, I guess HP is going to blame the non support for even writing the generic driver for older serial printers (that have been converted to network printers - notice no serial connection here HP!!) on APPLE and OSX. OH YEA.. thats great. Blame Apple for not having a legacy serial port and overlook all the companies that have converters or even customers whom now use them on networks. I THINK.. HP that your not supporting them because you think that will make the mass sheepish audience flock to the stores to buy NEW HP products... right?? .. WRONG! I know I will not anymore buy any HP products that will not be support in the future. To see where I am drawing my rant, take a look at this HP 'disclaimer' about the serial printers.."http://www.hp.com/cposupport/printers/support_doc/bpm06492.html" - OSX doesnt support serial .. thus no need for us to support OUR OWN PRODUCTS either. BULL! What you should say is that HP forgets its past customers and also creates customers for the competition. GO EPSON! Wither on the VINE HP, *my rant is over*

When in the WORLD is HP going to release a network/serial driver for the old HP 870cse Deskjet series printers in OSX? I know the serial will need to be converted to USB (easy).. but the networked HP Deskjet's 800 series are ready and capable.. if only HP would step up to the plate. I love my OLD HP... and would by another for the newer advanced features.. IF they would support their older printers. What incentive do I have to purchase a NEW USB NON-NETWORKABLE printer.. if in the future after a connection change to USB 2, they decide not to support the older solid printers on a newer OS. I know MANY people have the older HP printers and love them.. but are unable to use them on there local network.. because HP has decided to not write a driver for it. If anything else.. HP write a bloated catch all driver that covers all the older models.. and at least have support. My confidence has fallen in HP. Prove me wrong, support us and I WILL purchase newer products. This update fails to support networkable older HP Deskjets .. somebody please prove me wrong. *my rant is over*

The 1.3 update fixed my problem with the 640 C printer, and I've had no problems so far.
