Conclusion: I had really high hopes for this last multi function. After rotating threw ink cartridge style printers for years I decided to give this a whirl. The pros, its a solid built unit, visually looks nice, printing is clear. The negatives, every other month the wireless printer fails to work right in windows 8.1. I've reinstalled the drivers and the reliability of wireless printing is horrible.
Pros: Small Footprint, fast print speed
Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, unreliable
Excerpt: I finally had enough with my HP 7500 series all in one. The ADF quit working after about 2 months and it was constantly saying to replace color ink cartridges even though I had it set to print black only. The last straw was the scanner light staying on forever after scanning a page. I had to turn it off after every use. What a relief this machine is. It was easy to set up and even technology challenged me was able to get it working on my wireless network in short order.
Conclusion: This machine is not hard to install and operate. The problem is when you try to scan documents, there always seems to be an error. I even bought a USB cord to directly connect, and there are still scanning connection errors. At least, now I know that the error is with the scanner and not my wifi connection.
Conclusion: I have used this copier/printer since November 2013. I have it setup to print wirelessly from my Mac. It starts printing quickly after I hit the "Print" key, especially Acrobat docs. Print quality is quite good. I replaced a just plain old copier that no longer worked. The old copier had simple manual buttons to change image size, print density, etc. No screen. I really did not want an all-in-one but that seems all that is available.
Pros: reliable, durable, Small Footprint, High Quality Output, fast print speed
Cons: Difficult to use, Difficult Setup, expensive toner
Summary: newegg got this shipped to me in 2 days with the free option ...
Pros: got it for $150, compact, quiet, looks good, really fast, good copy quality, easy wps wireless setup, works good with windows 8.1,
Cons: always hate starter toner ... would rather them just roll it into the price and give us a full cartridge. it seems self defeating for them to give us a cartridge and then only fill it with %25 toner. how much more does the extra toner really cost. It seems like most of the cost would be in the cartridge itself.
Conclusion: Was concerned after I bought it and read some of the reviews. Than after testing the machine I realized it was a case of typical internet reviews where you have no idea of the competence of the reviewer. Turns out it prints Adobe acrobat docs just fine, can be installed as default printer, scan resolution is 600dpi optical and overall works fairly good with a substantial amount of features for printing or copying.
Pros: High Quality Output, fast print speed, easy to use
Excerpt: I love this printer, I can't say one negative thing about it. It's easy to use..the print is clear, there's many options to choose from.The wireless option is awesome.It's an excellent printer for the price..I use it for personal use and for printing a local town publishing newletter. The printer toner cartridge couldn't be any easier to change.
