"Scanner skews all docs 1 to 3 degrees counterclockwise"1.0 starson by Ted-T
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Scanner skews "all" documents". In scanning perfectly rectangular documents; regardless all four skew the image. In 1 month, I have had a new, two refurbished and a new. They all failed scan test. HP CHAT support is monotonously pedantic.
Summary: HP refuses to admit a design defect, my opinion, as four devices all demonstrate the same anomaly; to wit ALL pages are skewed. HP didn't even ask for the scanner samples to prove my point which I believe is HP's tacit concurrence of the design / construction defect inherent in the scanner, If you wish accept a scanner with but a few features and functions, go ahead.When I print an envelope from Word 2010 it does not print on the envelope as expected (a No. 10 envelope), but rather the printer IGNORES the formatting in Word and prints the address as if the envelope in the printer is an 8-1/2"x11" page, in landscape mode (the only correct action).
Printer is OK, though printer #2 (refurbished), failed to print a page containing an image from a Word document. The same page when written to a PDF to be then be printed via Adobe failed as well. Failed = stopped printing mid-stream about 1/3rd of way into the page.
The excess "dings" when it finishes a task is annoying.
My device(s) is USB attached. No interference from any other device.

I have uninstalled and deleted the driver multiple times.
Yes, I printed an envelope after the fresh install and it printed properly.
This is NOT a physical problem, rollers, print head, etc. as the printer is barely one month old --- and do note that the envelope (actually multiple) printed properly the other day - Sunday.
I have a laptop that uses the same printer, same driver, and Word 2007. It too now prints the envelope address incorrectly, e.g.: as if it is an 8-1/2"x11" page.
This is not the first time that this has occurred. Yes, on previous occasions I uninstalled and installed the drivers.
Hence, there is something inherently bad, wrong, defective, etc. inside the printer itself.
