"Best Consumer All-In-One On Market Today"4.5 starson by ColinMcGraw
Pros: eFax with no landline required, AirPrint support for iOS devices (iPhone, iPad), print via email from any computer or device, easy setup, fast prints, outstanding photo quality, Google cloud print, plays Angry Birds!
Cons: No auto document feeder, slow tablet (though that's to be expected)
Summary: This printer is a bit of a technological marvel and an oustanding example of HP innovation. The installation was smooth and simple (unlike my past three Epsons) and the feature set is outstanding.
First, HP finally understands that not everyone has a landline for faxing: I just have a cell phone, and I paid about $80 a year for eFax services that this printer includes for free (20 a month)!
My iPhone 4 and iPad 2 found the printer no problem and let me directly print from the device, and the ePrint functionality is sweet, too! I was getting off of work while my wife was at home with the kids one date night, and while she was too busy with our children to sit down at the computer to buy and print movie tickets, I had the capacity to do so. I did, then I emailed the tickets to my printer, which promptly spit them out so all she had to do was grab them on the way out the door when the babysitter came!
The tablet is also pretty cool! It's even great for setup and includes instructional setup videos and a virtual keyboard for entering things like network passwords/keys!
One of the best built-in apps (for us) is the one that lets you print coloring sheets of Disney characters, and we eventually figured out that the "Zeen" -- as it's called -- is compatible with Amazon's Android Appstore; thus, we were able to install Angry Birds, a chess game, WiFi Anylizer and more right on our printer!
Granted, the tablet is clunky and slow, but look at it this way: the current selling price of the eStation makes it only $50 more than the HP Envy printer, and the tablet and eFax/ePrint capabilities are ABSOLUTELY worth the small amount of extra money!
The only thing lacking is the auto document feeder which makes you fax, copy and scan items one sheet at a time. That will be a dealbreaker for some, but I find it tolerable given the many other advantages of the printer.
