At least it works?

Summary: I didn't purchase this from Amazon but it came free with my computer yet, ironically I had major problems getting it to work on it (Windows 7). After getting a Macbook Pro though, it worked perfectly without any problems. Anyways, that wasn't the biggest issue.
Summary: I drive a truck and was looking for a multifunction printer to save space. I saw the F4580 which is basically the same thing in the store, got it and thought all i needed plus wireless. Got onto my truck, plug into my inverter and the adapter doesn't power on.
The horror...The horror....Don't get if Mac/Airport Extreme...

Summary: I'm still reeling from the gyrations I've had to go through...so this likely won't be the best review... I swore years ago that I would never buy an HP printer again...but like an idiot, I did anyway! First the good: ..
Summary: The whole reason I bought this was for the wireless printing. It is almost impossible to get it to work, as you have to leave the printer on once it has connected. Hello HP I use this at home and I only print something a few times a month so I am not leaving it on all the time.
Summary: I have not had the printer too long but I like the speed and the quality of print that I have received so far....after a while using it I find it is impossible to use wireless,you have to redo the software every tine you start your computer up...hp couldn't seem to figure it out either.
Summary: This printer stopped working for me a year after purchase, so no chance for warranty. It's a power problem: power button refuses to turn on the printer. And the website offers no relevant solution aside from unplugging the plug and resetting the power.
Summary: After one year of use hard wired to an iMac, this printer/scanner/copier is a disappointment. It's plain unreliable. In its defense I'll say I got what I paid for, having taken advantage of a "sale" below $100.00. Why am I disappointed?
Summary: This printer came as a promotion with an iMac I purchased about a year and a-half ago. I believe I ended up paying about $50 for it with the rebate, and believe me, it's not worth anymore than that. It was hard to set up, but it did work for me for nearly 1 year.
Great if you have snow leopard. Otherwise, look elsewhere...

Summary: Got this printer for cheap with a new mac from apple so I did not pay full price. If I had, I would be returning this item. The biggest issue I have with this printer is that set up on a PC takes forever (longer to install this software than to install programs of much greater size on my mac).
Summary: I've had this printer for a few years now (came with a computer I bought), used it through grad school and using it in a home office. The three largest issues are the poor wireless connection and difficulty to impossibility of getting it to connect to wireless networks.
