Some good, some bad.

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
