Summary: I have owned this printer/scanner for more than a year. During that time, it was the source of endless frustration. First, the sparse positive is that it does as it advertises: It scans. It prints. It faxes. It makes copies.
Summary: If you have a two-line phone system and a two-line answering machine, then this printer is not going to work for you if you need the fax feature. You don't learn this until you start to have problems.
Summary: Maybe you're like me and are thinking surely the software is not *that* bad. Against all suggestions, I went ahead and performed the entire installation. (BTW, contrary to some reviews, I was presented an option to do a smaller installation.) I had no initial problems, but back to software shortly.
Summary: Truth be told, I only buy HP printers now. Epsons were always really finicky & frustrating for me and Canon's too slow. HP's in our SOHO have always been reliable, fast machines and relative (though appropriate to size & cost) workhorses.
Summary: I returned my HP 6110 multifunctional printer to get this. Ha!! what a difference. Software setup is a breeze. It automatically uninstalled my old Hp drivers. I connected to the printer to the network router directly and installed the software .
Summary: The sheet feeder on my machine was bad. HP explained that the feeder (identified by its serial number) was from a bad lot. They sent a replacement machine. The sheet feeder failed on this one also. HP explained that the feeder (identified by its serial number) was from the same bad lot.
Summary: If you want a solid, reliable, full featured all-in-one for your home or small office, this is it. It prints fast and sharp, uses less ink than most, and scans well. BUT - don't even begin to load the included software. It will crash and freeze your computer, and require countless hours to remove.
Summary: I was looking for a multifunction device that could be both a home office printer and a network printer for other computers in the house, and this product from HP had more of the features I was seeking than any other I found.
Summary: We can all hope that software updates will eventually catch up because this is really a nice piece of hardware. The software when working is actually pretty solid, the problem of getting it to work of course exists. Plus it simply is way too bloated for what it does.
Summary: My "real" rating would probably be 4.5 stars out of 5, but since I can't do that, I'll round up. When my old printer died, I decided to look into an all-in-one since my scanner was getting up there in age and I had begun to notice how convenient having a fax machine in the house would be.
