Not good for a small office that does a lot of scanning to email

Summary: Nice printer but the scanner interface is a joke... Scanning to email couldn't be easier: 1Press Scan <beep> 2Press Scan to Email <beep> 3Press Send an Email (again)<beep> (note, not Address book which is what everyone does the first time) 4Select the address to send from (we only have one) <beep> 5Press To: <beep> 6Select who it is going to (may require pressing down a few times) <beep> <beep> <beep> 7Press Done <beep> 8Press Next <beep> 9Press Scan <beep> Scan your...
Summary: I print a lot of labels, usually one or two at a time and I noticed that each time the same sheet goes through the printer it leaves ink residue which turns all my labels grey/black. The other downside is that when I try to scan using the top feeder, it often picks up more than one page at a time so I have double check that all pages have been scanned. Otherwise it usually behaves.
Summary: Bed for copying a page from a book is totally inadequate.Display is in an awkward place. Speed of copying is good and copies are decent. I wish HP had more of their models in stores so you could actually see the copier before you buy.
Excerpt: it keeps breaking and I keep getting Error messages. I returned it under warranty once, but had different problems with the replacement printer. It is loud and squeaks. On the plus side: it warms up fast and has great printing quality. The copy/scan/print functions work very well, when it does work. I do not use the fax function as it became to cumbersome to set up.
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.
