Sort of a fax machine, uses internet not a phone line

Summary: I should have looked up what eFax meant, it uses the internet to send and receive faxes. eFax is a company that makes it possible, you get 20 faxes per month for free, if you need more it's $13 a month for up to 130 - I find that kind of steep but you would save that on a second line. Installation took a long time and was balky, the Mac I hooked it up to didn't like the driver so I had to install it using the IP printer setting.
Summary: I bought the HP Photosmart 7510 HP Photosmart 7510 All-in-One with eFax Printer as a replacement for the C309g which had stopped working. I chose the 7510 because I'd been happy with the C309g and wanted to continue using the same ink cartridges. Everything works fine except for a problem with scanning. Using either the sheet feeder or the flatbed glass scanner, any scan of A4 white paper shows up with a blue tint and faint blue lines in the background.
Summary: The printer is great. I spent several days trying to figure out how to print from my IPhone. The EFax works fine BUT faxes sent to you don't print automaticaly, you have to go to the Efax site and log on to print them. Not the best plan. I don't use fax often so I won't have a problem I think. EFax is supposed to send me an alert when a fax is received, we'll see.
Nice product but less attractive when considering amt ink used and the cost

Summary: This is a great little printer and fast printing. The only thing I don't like about it is that you go through alot of ink. Far more than Kodak. At a hefty price for the ink the value is not a good one. Love all the features this printer has and it does make for alot of convenience. Price is Fair when considering the price of the ink.
Summary: I agree with the other reviews, this printer makes noises before it prints out. It works well, the printing looks good. I have not used color printing yet to comment. I only bought this because my Windows 7 would not work with my old printer. the scanner is good. I do not copy or scan often so I cannot be anymore detailed. I have not used the picture function yet.
Excerpt: My husband and I were looking for a really great all-in-one printer and the salesman sold us on this one. It scans, it prints, it connects easily to all gadgets and it faxes, too. The scanner is really great and the touch screen makes it super easy. The print quality is also very good. The one thing the salesman didn't tell us is that if you don't print a LOT the ink dries up quickly.
Summary: Bought this printer to use in a 100% Mac environment, primarily for its AirPrint capabilities. After the printer was finally setup, it's obvious that it's a good little printer with copying, scanning, and faxing capabilities. BUT, initial setup was a PAIN. It was linked to the wireless network as soon as it was turned on, DHCP assigned it an IP address, and configuration showed that it was connected. However, the included HP software could NOT find it on the network.
Summary: I purchased this printer because HP decided not to provide a Windows 7 driver for the color inkjet I owned. I decided if I was going to invest in a printer I wanted Airprint. For that the printer is good. Otherwise it is a slow printer that smears any attempt to print on photographic paper (even the paper that was supplied with the printer).
Summary: I just received this printer from hpshopping (jan-7-2012). As others have noted, it has a static hissing buzzing noise. Because the noise emanates from the left side of the printer, which is in line with my ear, it immediately gave me a headache. I didn't want to return it tho, as I had just returned another printer! So I angled the printer away from my ear and over the last few days, I have left the printer always on standby.
