Summary: Soon as I got it, it was not working. Had to send it to HP to be fixed under warranty. Since then, a solid performer. Only recently did a couple of the scan elements go, resulting in a thin gray line on all scans. Otherwise works great.
Good multifunction printer but outgoing faxing has problems

Summary: Our entry-level Epson printer died and I decided to replace both that and our rather old and very basic Brother fax machine with the HP 7210 multifunction. Getting a semi-decent copying function was a bonus.
Update: Glitches are a stopper; print basics are fine

Summary: I've owned the HP OfficeJet 7210 for about two months now. Print quality is excellent, speed more than acceptable, ease of installation and use OK. Faxing and copying are fine. I have had problems, however...
Printer: Great. Scanning Software: A Pain. Customer Service: Atrocious!

Summary: Print quality: great. Price: great. Scanning software: not so great (read other reviews as well). HP Customer Service; awful! I spent 2.5 hours on the phone trying to resolve an issue with the printer installed on an ethernet.
