Excerpt: Great quality. Fast. Reasonable ink costs. Wireless accessible from PCs, Macs, Phone and iPad. And since I've had a great experience with my last Cannon printer (still running 6 years out), this covered all of my important goals at a very reasonable price.
Excerpt: I ordered this printer for my daughter for her dorm usage. We like it so much. It looks cute and could do the printing well. We haven't tried the other functions yet. All my daughter needed is printing her assignments or projects.
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.
