Summary: The printer works great but I have not been able to get the scanner to work.I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and it does't work. I purchased this one because I had the same model for years and it worked great.
Summary: I needed a new all in one printer as my old one was more than 5 years old & it was giving me problems with printing. This printer I purchased seems to be ok with printing but the fax portion does not work properly. The box it came in had the seal tape broken so I don't know if it was really brand new or not. I can use it to print & copy ok so I am not going to be that concerned about the fax portion. All in all, the price was ok & I can use the machine to print & copy.
Excerpt: I was excited to get my new printer to go with my new HP Computer; however, I've had problems installing it due to having Windows 7 installed on my new computer. I got an error message saying "PC does NOT recognize printer" Told me to try another USB port or USB cord, tried both and still wouldn't install. Went to Windows 7 and updated new drivers which I shouldn't have had to do, still won't install, and my new printer is still NOT installed correctly!

The good things about it is it does print good pictures,has great helpful software to install on your computer that lets you change printer settings,scan documents,pictures,send faxes & more. Also it can be installed on multiple computers.
