Truly a great machine

Fatal Flaw almost Fixed

S. G. Line, Amazon
29 March 2003
  • 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.

Good Hardware - Poor Software

Mark in NJ, Amazon
22 March 2003
  • 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.

Can't find any flaws - I LOVE mine

T. K., Amazon
14 March 2003
  • 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.

Maybe good depending what you�re looking for�

Mr. JKW, Amazon
6 March 2003
  • 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.

User freindly, great photo printouts

Robert Dollen, Amazon
28 February 2003
  • 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.
