"It doesn't install. Almost to end, "encountered error""

March 05, 2014  |  By underwearbomber

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.16.1

Pros

none for me

Cons

useless for me

Summary

Somehow Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and HP psc 750 printers are incompatible. Neither Apple nor HP cares enough to provide drivers that allow one to print & scan with this device and OS. A third party generic driver like gutenprint works for printing, but not for scanning. So a perfectly good printer/scanner has become half useless. I'm sorry to have "upgraded" to Mountain Lion because of problems like this, and the fact that it hogs RAM slowing the iMac unnecessarily. Very disappointing.

"Be Careful! No longer prints PDF's for me."

October 25, 2013  |  By Squirt-Cee

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.16.1

Pros

Nothing for me

Cons

No longer prints PDFs. It's a bug I've seen after doing some research on my problem. I used the apple software update, and was upgraded from version 2.14 to this version 2.16.1, and immediately lost the ability to print PDFs. I'm running OS X 10.7.5, and print over a network at work. The printer spools endlessly, and I'm stuck.

Summary

I know bugs are selective, so maybe you'll be fine. But I'm now working to downgrade back to 2.14, not an easy task I'm finding!

"Forget this !"

September 03, 2012  |  By virtue523

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.11

Pros

Worked well after I restored my HP to version 2.0 from a backup.

Cons

I'd suggest passing on this update.
I have an HP 1500. Worked well until the download. I'm using 10.6.8 and all is well after I restored my HP to version 2.0 from a backup.

"On Mountain Lion this update causes printer crashes"

August 09, 2012  |  By yendor56

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.10

Pros

I've been very happy with earlier versions of these Printer Drivers

Cons

Printing to HP LaserJet 4100 Series from any application crashes after applying this update (at least on Mountain Lion).

If you have a TimeMachine backup from before the you applied the update, the easiest fix is to use it to replace the contents of /Library/Printers/hp/Frameworks/HPSmartPrint.framework with your most recent backup of that folder from before the update was applied.

Problem occurs with both the AppStore software update version and the full installer from Apple's website. Problem and solution have been verified on Mountain Lion installations on two machines.

I don't know if this affects other HP laser printers. I expect that it probably will.

Summary

If you haven't been caught yet, wait until Apple releases a replacement version.

Updated on Aug 24, 2012

Version 2.11 has now been released.

The issue I referred to above has been resolved.

"Not Up-To-Date with Gutenprint Drivers!"

November 04, 2010  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.5.2

Pros

Some useful driver updates.

Cons

Apple continues to drag its feet updating to the latest Gutenprint drivers.

Summary

What upsets me about ALL of Apple's driver updates is their annoying refusal to keep up-to-date with the latest stable Gutenprint drivers. This is, IMHO, entirely RIDICULOUS. Thus my mere 2 star rating.

The current stable version of Gutenprint drivers is v5.2.6 from August 2010. Meanwhile, Apple stubbornly remains stuck back on v5.2.3 from early 2009. WHAT?! 2009?!

I personally recommend checking out the latest stable version of the Gutenprint drivers and, if you find a useful driver in the update, INSTALL IT on top of Apple's ye olde out-of-date Gutenprint drivers.

Come on Apple! Catch up with modern world Gutenprint already!

"Still dogging after update"

November 24, 2009  |  By swenk22_dotmac

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Since upgrading to snow leopard my HPDJ6540 has been SLOW!! Not the actual printing but the staging, or transfer from computer to printer. We're talking 80 seconds to set up one page of plain text! Before upgrade this all happened within seconds... I thought this latest driver upgrade would help but... no...

"Does not work"

November 18, 2009  |  By Felinda

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I, too, had the last minute hang and not go anywhere, but I left it alone for several minutes while tending to my grandaughter, and found that it had finished in the interim. However - even though my printer/copier/scanner was listed, it still does not copy or scan. So for me, I will continue to use my Canon scanner. Very sloppy quality control testing, if any was done at all. HP has consistently let me down. Not sure I will purchase another product from them.

"Installer hangs, runaway process, fans, "

November 17, 2009  |  By summerstormpictures

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This exact scenario happened with my attempt at installing. I have four friends, one of whom used to work at an Apple Store--same issue. This is obviously not an isolated event as even a previous commenter added weight to this.

I got a PACE kext repeating dialog and a runaway process with fans a blazing. I not only had to force-quit the installer, but had to reboot as well to get rid of a continuing repeating loop of pop-up errors about an badly installed kext.

I gave it one more shot and rebooted into safe mode, logged into a freshly created admin account--same deal. Had to force-quit the installer--which didn't end the repetetive pop-ups.

Obviously this is a problematic update that needs fixing.

It still frankly amazes me, and don't get me wrong, I still drink the Apple Kool-Aid, but I've been amazed how easily the Windows updates go in general, considering they are on a huge installed base of "machines of mystery" of an infinite variety of configurations not owned by Microsoft.

Apple owns, develops and maintains it's own installer base that includes a much smaller number of KNOWN machines (machines of no mystery)--and yet we are so often plagued with bad install issues like this. You'd think this would be the opposite experience in "mac world."

Owning a Mac is about simplicity in your computing life, not having to be a "smart Mac person" who knows for example, not to use the automated "Software Update" but rather to download a huge combo-update, boot into safe mode, repair permissions, install, re-repair permissions etc.

You can do much much better than this Steve Jobs. Take your eyes off your bottom line and live up to what Bill Gates said about you when he said you were "doing good things..." There's nothing wrong with "doing good things" after you've sold someone something too. We're moving into a more and more re-purposed world that tries to keep technology out of the landfill just a little longer.

"HP Drivers"

November 16, 2009  |  By rstreimer

 |  Version: Apple HP Printer Drivers 2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Went to the trouble of installing this, and My HP 4100 series all in one, still will not scan under Snow Leopard. Nor will it work with all the short cuts (offensively offerred on the Apple website). I am not looking to figure out who to blame. Snow Leopard is a popular and well deployed system, the HP all-in-ones are also well sold and widely deployed. GET THIS FIXED!!
