Summary: I am buying this to replace the same model I bought refurbished April 2006 for $177. A great workhorse. It finally died after six tax seasons printing out tax returns. Yeah, it isn't good at envelopes. And it does tend to have some paper jams. But it prints great quality and fast. If it lasts as long as the last one I will be thrilled. It works great with my professional tax software to print out tax returns for my business.
Summary: This multifunction printer is a great substitute for the HP models. Very crisp output and a great value for the home office. The only draw is the scanner option which is not a flat bed scanner.
Summary: Nice all in one box for the price. Have owned this machine since Jan of 2005. Once in a while I get a paper jamb and they can be a real pain to clear the paper. That's the price you pay for cheap. It is a fast machine (18 sec warm up) and does have great print quality. One other aspect I didn't like is draws about 9 watts in sleep mode and 75 in standby. But the real problem is it draws about 11 amp surges every 10 to 15 seconds for about 10 minutes while in standby.
