Lesson of the day: buy from Amazon, not from third party sellers.

Summary: This printer was a complete nightmare. It started having problems in the first couple of months. First it was a bad wifi connection: one page would take about 35 minutes to print. Then the printer started printing out complete jibberish. It literally has cost us hours and hours of frustration. DO NOT BUY THIS ITEM! Also, DO NOT BUY THE WARRANTY ASSOCIATED WITH THE PRINTER! The customer service is terrible.
Summary: I've had it for over two years & it still works like a champ. I can connect instantly through my iphone, iPad, & Mac without needing to add or install software. Plus this printer can be connected to the web service so if you just have to print something have have it ready for you when you arrive you; you can do that. Lastly there are a couple apps for iOS (apple) that allow you to scan directly to the device.
Typical HP experience, not unlike Chinese water torture

Summary: I bought this printer at OfficeMax a couple years ago and decided to post this on Amazon as a warning. The price I was able to get on the printer--less than $100--was the lowest price I could find on an 11x17 wide format printer. It's not worth $100. Tragically, it's also not the worst Hewlett-Packard device I've ever owned. As a quick recap on my computer ownership, I owned HP computers from 1999 until 2014--three, to be precise.
Summary: Airprint works well with my iPhone and with my PC. To print 11x17, I have to manually hold the paper and feed it at the correct rate to prevent jamming or image distortion. I have never been able to get the document feeder to scan images in a format that I can use, despite it allegedly being a .pdf.
Summary: I rated this printer 1 star only because I could not select a lower rating. I purchased it for home use and it was a huge mistake. It took forever to print anything and was an ink hog. I don't think I printed more than 200 pages on it when I discovered that it would not print with black ink any longer. I tried to clean the heads several times to no avail. The next thing recommended was to replace the printhead. Instead, I replaced the printer with an Epson!
