Just a note to anyone who is thinking of buying a Hewlett-Packard product.
DON’T DO IT! You and your family will be much better of without the incredible amount of frustration and aggravation that will reign down upon you, should you buy a new Hewlett-Packard “Piece Of Excrement.”
Do yourself a big favor, unless your idea of a good time is buying a product that will immediately cease to work, after the incredible workload of three, that’s 3, copies in 3 months! Having, of course, to uninstall and re-install it both times, after the initial installation.
I realize it might be considered unreasonable for anyone to think such a workload could be handled by a new Hewlett-Packard machine, an Officejet 4500, which will be refered to for the rest of this article as what it is, a “PIECE OF Excrement”, or, “POE.”
If you have money and time to waste, by all means buy a new Hewlett-Packard “POE”. I can tell you what you can look forward to. Once you have made the biggest mistake of your life, putting you and your family’s peace of mind at terrible risk, you can immediately start making trips to your local Fed-ex Kinkos to make copies and pick up your re-directed faxes, the ones your new Hewlett-Packard “POE” at home won’t send or receive.
Hewlett-Packard does try and make the world a smaller place, by introducing you to many fine people around the world, some of whom can actually be understood if you ask them to speak real slow. Somehow, they have managed to pay these people from anywhere in the world but America, to try and teach you, in your hours of interactions with them, how to build a (printer, computer, or whatever Hewlett-Packard “POE” you have been unfortunate enough to purchase).
Somehow, after spending hours of your time, and being driven to the limits of your patience, (your family really enjoys this part, watching you fight with a new Hewlett-Packard “POE,” trying to find ways to avoid contact with you, as you explode when the foreign tech asks incredibly stupid questions like, “Is it plugged in? Is it turned on?” Or, after it breaks down again, (it only works when the tech is on the phone, after a minimum of an hour. As soon as they are gone, the new Hewlett-Packard “POE” stops working, forcing another fun call, where you will be told, “It says here it worked after the last call, so it works.”
Even the foreign techs realize how much fun it is to call them over and over, so they think they have to weed out the purely pleasure calls to find the ones that concern a repeated breakdown of the Hewlett-Packard “Piece of Excrement.”
You get the idea. Hewlett-Packard is in business to steal your money selling sub-par Chinese “Pieces of Excrement,” so they can redistribute your hard earned money around the world to foreigners, for much less then they take in selling the new Hewlett-Packard “Pieces Of Excrement”, making a fortune on the difference.
So, if you want to meet new people from around the world, and alienate and scare your friends and family once you have been driven to anger and frustration by a Hewlett-Packard “Piece of Ecrement,” then by all means purchase a Hewlett-Packard “Piece Of Excrement.”
If you actually want to print or send documents, or any of the normal acts associated with computers, avoid them, (Hewlet-Packards “Pieces of Excrement”), at all costs.
Pardon me,as I download this to a memory stick on my computer, right here next to my Hewlett-Packard “Piece of Excrement”, so I can go back to Fedex Kinkos, print copies to mail to friends without computers, and fax this to the Hewlett-Packard Headquarters, which happens to be in Palo Alto California.
This has been a public service announcement.
