"Easy wireless setup, great photo prints and fast prints"4.0 starson by GripR
Pros: Connecting to wireless network was as easy as 1-2-3. Fast regular and photo prints. LCD will display Caller ID when fax or call comes in. Print from mobile devices via bluetooth or wifi. Touch features & Application on unit are actually beneficial.
Cons: The $400 price tag kind of makes you think twice or more before buying it. I'm a technology freak, so I have to have the latest (if I can afford it). Touch scroll can sometime lag because all apps have to be connected to the internet.
Summary: Since companies like HP are usually the trend starters and innavators. It's the way of the future! lol. There will be some people that will complain about lag touch feature, but how was the touch feature on their previous web printer? OH wait there wasn't one lol. My touch web works fine, but there is always room for improvement. I hope HP releases a firm update for the printer.
Since the printer has wireless capabilities you can place it wherever you like. I actually keep this printer down stairs. I.E. Since it can connect to the web I don't have to run upstairs to check movie times, I can do it on the printer. I don't use fandango to print my movie tickets, but it's a nice feature to have. The editor that reviewed this printer does make a good point that you can check on your computer must faster, but I turn off my computers. I would have to turn it on and wait for everything to load or I can be downstairs searching on the printer while getting things ready like putting on shoes or stuffing my girlfriends purse with water and candy (I refuse to pay $5 for a small bag of candy or water at the theater).
I usually do not like the additional software that the manufacture gives you, but the new HP toolbox is actually not cluttered with useless stuff like in the past. It has options to scan docs, photos transfer images and fax. Very simple.
I also like the fact that the customer support for this unit is based in the US! I have nothing against CSR's from other countries, but it's nice to hear a voice from here. Also, I did not know this until today, but I guess this unit has the "White Glove Treatment" from HP. I guess it's part of the one year warranty. Supposedly if anything happens to the machine besides accidental breakage, HP will send a new unit NEXT DAY. For $400 they better...
I've only had the printer for a couple of days and it has been fantastic so far. I say give this printer a chance if you can.
