Summary: I purchased the C510a to replace my H.P.7280 because I thought it used a lots of ink. Boy was I susprissed, this one seems to use a lots more. H.P. seems to be having a problem with this 564 ink. I finally bought another cannon.
Summary: I purchased this printer because we needed a printer and fax really bad. I purchased this particular one because of the removable tablet. I was disappointed with the inconsistency of the tablet. If you are buying it for the tablet get a less expensive one because you will be highly disappointed. Every other function works well. I love the Eprint feature. My girlfriend writes me letters and prints them just by sending it to the email.
Summary: So far so good. I had initial problems with this item when it first applied new updates. It frozen. Then the intsructions on troubleshooting were wrong. Customer support were obviously reading the same instructions I found online. I eventually figured it out. Working well now.
NOT FOR 12x12 SCRAPBOOKERS or scanning larger than 8.5x11

Summary: This is a decent printer. Skinny little ink wells so you need to replace them more frequently. But my main complaint is that it is also supposed to be a scanner and in that it doesn't function well for me. I scrapbook 12x12 and usually I scan those layouts in 2 parts and knit them together in Photoshop Elements. On this printer/scanner there is a little hand held device you dock and remove from the printer scanner. The dock area on the printer has a lip.
Summary: This printer isn't what I thought it was going to be. Perhaps it is my own fault for not reading other reviews more thoroughly. The wireless function isn't as effortless as it sounds. We've had the printer for a month, and we're still figuring out how to print documents, as the wireless function doesn't work smoothly. The owner's manual isn't much help. Seems like we always have to turn the printer off and on again to get documents to print.
Summary: Setup was easy; wireless works great all over the house; prints great; the MAJOR issue I have is with scanning. The issue being when I scan multiple pictures; set the advanced picture setting to 'scan multiple photos to individual files (single selection for each photo found)my scan output varies every time I scan.
Summary: There are many things I like about this printer. It is a very sleek design, the Zeen tablet is pretty cool, wireless and e-printing, and it was a snap to set up. Unfortunately, I did not realize how much ink this thing uses for day to day printing. It's hard to gauge how many pages it has printed, as I bought this off marketplace, and the sender sent it with cartridges that were almost completely empty, but still printed about 30 pages or so.
Summary: I bought this printer after having a Canon printer that gave me lots of trouble. All of my printers before the Canon printer were HP's that I never had issues with so I decided to go back to using an HP. I had trouble setting up the printer and called HP support where I patiently followed the advice READ to me from the "technical specialist." After over an hour of being on the phone I asked to speak with a supervisor since we were getting nowhere.
Summary: I bought this because the price went way down from the original 500.00. I thought to myself - this is a steal. It's not. The zeen is very unresponsive and full of bugs, and what makes it terrible, is that HP has'n't updated the firmware or software in over 9 months now. I was hoping that a firmware and software update would fix all the problems with this printer-tablet combo, but to no avail.
Summary: I purchased a new printer I didn't need because of the features which only disappoint. The initial setup seemed relatively simple but I have as yet been able to establish a wireless set up from my computer after multiple attempts, reloading, and searching the web for advice. I am successful at wireless printing from my iPhone. I haven't even tried it with my iPad. Scanning works OK. I haven't used the fax feature. Available apps are inconsequential for me.
