Summary: This is a very versatile machine. The "HP Director" which has an icon installed on your desktop, is a super wizard type tool, that will allow you to select any function of the machine; copy, scan, print, fax, and walk you through the steps for whatever job; includes a photo editor to polish up...
Pros: Although accepts legal size media, glass top not long enough; hard to copy legal size docs
Cons: Although accepts legal size media, glass top not long enough; hard to copy legal size docs
Summary: 1)The stand-alone fax portion of the unit is better than my previous dedicated fax machine. 2)The fax director software makes faxing documents directly from the PC a breeze. 3)The copy function is intuitive and simple. 4)The color copies are fantastic quality.
Summary: I own and operate a very busy financial services business with my husband. We have a small LAN and use the standard HP4SI and HP5 laser jet printers all of which are networked.

Summary: Hi, I wrote the review above entitled 'Great except for one fatal flaw'. I wanted to write back to say HP has improved the software in a big way since my first two versions. After returning the first two, I waited a few months, and spoke to an HP tech support expert. She was no help.
Summary: As a general rule, I find that HP makes good hardware, but poor software. The G85 is a case in point. I've been using this printer+ in a networked configuration for almost two years now. When it works, its great.

Summary: This wonderful machine has so many advantages over using my printer and scanner that I barely know where to start. Here's what I fell in love with in my little home office: 1) Stand-alone fax and copying.
Summary: HP's 685 All-In-One scanner, typical of all-in-one devices, combines the functions of multiple office machines into one (fairly) easy-to-use device. The 685 is a combination printer, copier, scanner and fax machine.
Summary: I was in the market for a photo printer at first, I saw this and thought it would be nice to make more space on my desk by having one unit on my desk rather than 4. This unit prints some great photos and is worth a few dollars more to have the ADF.
