"Fast, Painless Set-up. HP reputation."5.0 starson by dougbert1964
Pros: HP quality. Very good color. Excellent set-up routine. ePrint from anywhere utility. Excellent network connectivity. Good feature/price ratio. Print speed is very, very fast.
Cons: Instruction set is minimal. Intuitive for those with prior IT background, but lacking for a casual user. However, simply turning printer ON and using touchscreen interface makes up for it. ePrint must be configured from the included DVD.
Summary: This printer replaced an old B+W Laser. I unpacked, read the minimal instructions, configured and connected this printer to my wired home network in ~30 mintues. I did not configure faxing, which would add time. The imbedded webserver picked up an IP address and downloaded the latest updates and installed with no interaction on my part. By far, the easiest network printer set-up I have encountered in years. The included DVD contained the the WIN7 driver I needed, but I had to visit hp.com for a Mac X Lion driver... but no issues encountered with either install... typical for HP in my experience. All necessary configuration for printing and scanning installed from the DVD. HP includes some optional non-required bloatware (typical for HP in my experience), which can be deselected from the install. This HP printer is one of a few that includes the ePrint option (must be configured from the DVD set-up routine) which allows printing from any device. Simply follow the easy set-up for ePrint and assign the printer an email address. Send your print jobs to the email address and viola, print out is waiting for you! Very slick! This appears to be a well-constructed, well-thoughtout printer. I am looking forward to years of service from it.
Thanks for your submission!
