Pros I like the option of printing both letter and legal size documents. The touch screen is large, easy to read and can be tilted to readable angles.
Cons In order to receive faxes, you must be connected to an analog (landline) NOT digital phone--unless you stand near the machine and press the ACCEPT button on the touchpad during an incoming fax. The Answer On is useless. How inconvenient!
Summary Bring back my old Lexmark 8300 series! It lasted for years, did all 4 functions easily, and used only 2 ink cartridges--black and color. The HP outsourced tech support is enthusiastic but clueless. Since I'm happy with my HP computer, I had expected better performance from this printer.
A question to everyone: Do all the latest all-in-ones require analog phones now or did I buy a lousy machine? Who uses landline anymore?
Pros Just 7 months of scans.
Cons After 7 months of very light use, the document feeder started shredding the documents.
Summary Literally the most frustrating purchase of technology in my history. I formerly worked as an integrated circuit designer at HP, but things changed when Carly Fiorina turned the company into just a branding company. Another company designs and manufactures the product, and HP puts their name on it. I should have known better, and now it's forever etched into my brain. I will never even consider purchasing another HP product. Their new motto? "Going bankrupt one customer at a time."
Pros It was suppose to be a 1 day sale, however it is still going on. $100 of the online purchase & on March 31st there was another online coupon offering 10% that price. With logistics only taking 2 days it took me all of 1 hour to set-up out of the box
Cons I've had it up a couple of hour. Not the best, but not the worst by far. If you want perfection leaving printing to the pro's.
Summary Almost awesome will sum it up. I'm sure there are some software & firmware corrections to be created & fixed before I applaud too loud. However I am leaving HP with a ( 4 - ) overall. It could be a little faster in color mode.
Pros Large flatbed, double sided printing
Cons ADF scan limited to 300 dpi
Summary HP makes a printer with specs that sound good, and print quality seems high. They have omitted at least one fact, namely that you can only achieve scan resolutions above 300 dpi by single-sided manual scanning on the flatbed. Whether there are more subtle flaws that are not revealed is now open to question, and by default questions such as durability also arise. There are other all-in-ones that do what they say; look at them instead.
Pros - Quick and easy set up
- Big display
- Quiet scanner
- Holds the perfect amount of paper
- Easy ink replacement
- Networking (wireless and email printing)
Cons - Printer must be set to 'best' quality setting for even tone pictures.
- Must be updated to work (just like anything else).
Summary The first thing that must be known about this printer is that you HAVE to put the printer on the 'best' quality setting if you are printing pictures, regardless of size, or the pictures will come out with uneven color tones. Good news is that everything looks great once it's set right.
Now this thing about the aggressive finger presses for the touchpad is not accurate. The touch pad is the perfect sensitivity for a light touch and pressing too hard will actually not work very well. This might be due to an update but I didn't test it before the updates.
Yes the printer is a little loud when printing. Just not nearly as bad as many out there. Scanning is the impressive part, it is extremely quiet when preforming the actually scan of an item.
Replacing the ink is the easiest I've seen. No need to hunt through the menu to find the setting to replace the ink or lift the top half of the printer. All that is needed is to pull down the front cover while the printer is on and everything will move into the right place to change the ink. Oh and it tells you this with pictures in case you forget to turn the printer on after pulling down on the cover. It's WONDERFUL!
Holds 250 sheets. Need I say more. I have had $300+ printers that hold no more than 25 sheets or the printer will jam.
No more waiting to get home to print something. Just sent an Email to your printer's Email address and it will print instantly once it receives the Email. The Email address can be changed at any time. Though, this feature does require a wireless network.
For people who decide not to use the wireless network. Fear not! For it comes with all the cables you need for a wired connection.
Two sided printing and copying works great. Though I feel that this might be the part that will break first, I can say that this part is replaceable.
Alright, now for my testing of the wireless connection problem people have been saying. I have tried every form of trying to recreate this connection issue with no success. I just cannot get it to fail. Whether I turn on the computer first or the printer or let it sleep then awaken it. Nothing seems to sever the connection or from it reconnecting back to the computer. Now again this might be due to an update. But as of 08/28/2012 the printer just keeps WORKING AND PRINTING!!
