The 4plus was a rare reliable model.  The 4L for example was a disaster.

Some of the old ones were indestructible.  That was HP of a different
era though.  Some of the original HP Deskjets still run too.  So they
were capable of making reliable inkjets once upon a time.  They still
printed pretty awful quality wise but they did so consistently and
reliably at least.
