Excerpt: The printer is very efficient, and fast. the scanner is slow, and small. Didn't test the fax, It seems to be working fine. The scan to email is a great feature, but the interface needs to be tweaked a bit in order to make it more user friendly. After all its a great buy for the $$ and the competition is not any better. a quick word about the ink, It is pretty affordable and last for a while. comes in 2 sizes, I use the XL size.
Excerpt: I purchased this HP printer. The USB hook-up to an iMac was fluid and quick. Not so with the Windows XP sp2 computer despite repeated contact with HP support. After several attempts, was finally able to hook-up to the Windows machine. Guesswork and luck helped more than the support ideas. The printer did not do a proper auto double sided scan or copy. One side was OK but the other was only half black and half lines. Proper double sided result for print.
Excerpt: Copier has nice crisp copies and is pretty fast printing. The copier does go into sleep mode to much and you have to keep shutting it off and back on because of initializing, this is not a good thing, other than that, the copier does great .
Excerpt: Reluctant to give this printer a good or bad rating....bought about a month ago and loved it to pieces....last week it started not wanting to pick up paper....then it got a couple of jams...When I pulled one out...and replaced the ink cartridge, all the pages began to print all black. Put in a service report to HP....waited 2 days with no response. ...so I called staples who immediately sent me a new printer! Kudos to staples....huge disappointment in HP...
Summary: The machine makers assume one knows what all their little icons mean. They also assume that one knows certain required sequenced commands to accomplish ordinary printing. On its "home page" there is no option for printing.. I have owned HP printers before. This one and the last one have inexplicable requirements to do simple commands. All the others in the past were comprehensible. This one is not!!
Summary: We bought this device to serve primarily as a printer. We also needed a backup for our full-size Minolta multifunction device. As a printer, it performs well enough. Print quality is as expected from a modern laser (ie, excellent) and speed too. The copier function is similarly competent. That was the good. Now the bad. The scanner produces enormous file sizes, to the point of being unusable. A 300dpi B/W A4 scan is about 25kB in TIFF format from my CanoScan.
Summary: Most of the features work well on this machine, however, we purchased it for making multiple copies and it is not the best at that. There are typically lines at the bottom of the page, which is quite annoying. No matter how you place the page into the feeder, you will have a line near the bottom of the page. Perhaps there is a trick to this, but we have yet to find it. The copies are clear and nice other than the dark line.
Excerpt: The only reason I would not consider buying this MFP again is all the buttons to push just to scan a page to email. I fell 3 buttons should be the max - but this MFP takes 7 button pushes to scan 1 page. A little too time consuming for me. I am not a fan of the touch pad. My particular machine also had some problems, when it was just a month old, not picking up pages from the ADF. This required a fix-it trip by HP to replace the entire ADF.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Set Up, Fast Print Time, Low Ink Consumption
Excerpt: Аппарат у меня используется в бухгалтерии из 3-х человек. Устраивает во всем, кроме необходимости включать и выключать по нескольку раз, что бы аппарат увидел сеть. Надеюсь, что это программный глюк и очень жду обновление прошивки.
Pros: Быстро печатает, двухстороннее однопроходное сканирование, много написано про достоинства, но недостатки...
Cons: В прошивке, что была установлена при покупке (версию не запомнил), очень долго ставился в очередь печати документ, направляемый по сети (около минуты). После обновления до версии 20131216 всё исправилось, но!!! При включении принтер не видит сеть, так же, после режима сна теряет сеть (т.е. индикация на LAN порту аппарата не горит). И чтоб он опять её обнаружил приходится несколько раз включать и выключать. принтер. Ну про сенсор тоже писали, что не очень хороший, но п...
