"Up to HP Standards"4.0 starson by gbrown0619
Pros: Excellent Photo Quality, Quiet Operation, Wireless
Cons: Severely limited document feeder, Optional Duplex Printing
Summary: Out of the box setup was a breeze. Except for one " XP Blue Screen of Death fatal error" due to USB hangup.
The photo quality is excellent, something I expected from HP. I do like the additional 4x6 photo paper slot. The print speed is amazing! Really fast even in the highest print mode. During the printing process, I had to take a second look to make sure my photo's were printing! This printer is so quiet, it amazes me.
The wireless setup was a nice pleasent surprise. I was able to be up and wireless in minutes. Nothing out of the ordinary and even a novice can do it. Very staight forward with good insturctions included.
The scanner is quiet and is fast enough for the average home user. The output quality from scanning is about average.
The 3.6 LCD monitor is a nice feature and is lage enough to actually use.
My only criticism is the limited 8x11 document feeder. It is severely limited so if you do a large amount of printing at one shot, better keep some extra paper near by to feed this thing.
All in All, I'm glad I made the purchase.Updated
I had my printer for a week and all of a sudden, not I get the "Blue Screen of Death" on the printers LCD monitor. Error codes that only a IT could love. I followed the Troubleshooting procedures outlined by HP's web site. I got it to work in the wireless mode again, but the USB connection is completely dead. Called HP and please don't get me wrong here.....but I really like to speak to someone I can understand. ie: English! No help what so ever. The last words that were spoken by the HP Tech Rep....."Take it back to where you got it!" This is not the type of support I've come to know from HP.
Needless to say I'm returning this unit back for another one. I'll write another User Opinion on that one if needed.
