1 out of 5 eggsDoes not perform critical functions correctly

Pros: Clean Prints. I just did a simple usb setup.

Cons: Sheet feeder rips up your originals.

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these printers. Both rip up your originals in the sheet feeder -- right out of the box.

No refund because they were refurb units. Exchange only.

The printer does not do what the manufacturer says it does.

I guess we'll see if the replacements work better. Otherwise we'll just keep sending them back until I get two functioning units.

4 out of 5 eggsTook a chance

Pros: Inexpensive full feature wireless network enabled MFC printer (scan, copy)... straight copy without having to scan the document into a PC then print it out.

Cons: Plastic, but that's what you get now a day. Once in a while the printed page does not come out clean, i.e. black line; not a deal breaker. As others posted, a better scanning software would be an improvement. Scanning and copying is slow. It's the mechanical engine.

Other Thoughts: The price dropped $20.00. My HP LaserJet 4M fuser finally gave out. Replacing the fuser would cost more than this printer, easy choice. I researched and compared printers from Brothers, Epson, Canon, HP and others for price and features. Brothers has a better printer but it has problem with state of the art electrical boxes. I have an older house. I decided not to put up with the potential problem so I settled on this printer.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable, Cost-Effective

Pros: Bought this to replace the money-sucking ink-jet printers we had in a SOHO environment. Printer is fast and reliable. Network scanning is convenient. Wireless printing is likely the best feature -- no LAN cables are required and users with iPhone / iPad's can print flawlessly. The web-based control panel makes it easy to manage.

Cons: Power saving is a little weird -- every once in a great while you have to physically turn the printer back on. If you print something that makes it think you're using the manual feeder, you have to press the "OK" button -- it's only annoying because we don't use the manual feeder. I wish it held a full ream of paper, but it's not a real big deal.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Deal

Pros: Print speed, time to first page and quality of printed page are good.

Cons: Wif-Fi went bad after 6 months. Cheap plastic. I am amazed HP put their name on something like this. Not your typical HP product. This thing is NOTHING like your old Laserjet. If you are repsonsible for buying office machines stay away - far away.

Other Thoughts: My old LaserJet was a workhorse of the first order. It lasted for 10 years and was still going strong when I gave it away. My shop bought paper by the pallet load and the old LaserJet went through five years of up to 200,000 pages per year. I wish I had it back. No one will ever say that about this thing.

1 out of 5 eggsShould have returned it

Pros: Cheap laser printer

Cons: You can't adjust the compression for scanning to PDFs. So your 7 page PDF becomes 4mb. It's LOUD. With latest firmware AirPrint now prints multple copies of the document - until you actually push cancel on the machine.

Other Thoughts: Should have returned it instead of looking for fixes and work arounds. Updated to latest software/firmware today. Still Junk. If you have to scan, stay away.

4 out of 5 eggsNeeds better scanning software

Pros: - Pretty easy setup for wireless
- Prints quickly
- I was able to have all the PC's in my house print to this printer in about 10 minutes (wired and wireless)

Cons: The scanning software with this printer is nothing but trash. It is a total waste of my time to have an All-in-one printer that I can't scan on. To scan documents I use my Canon MP 500 that is 1) fast, 2) easy to use, and 3) came with full version, licensed software that actually works. I would have to believe HP either gets a cut on getting the full version license fee or cheaped out on the scanning interface drivers and sw :-(

Other Thoughts: I really like being able to print to this printer from any computer in my home. It is very quick and should save me a bunch of cash over using one of my 2 Canon inkjet printers...but until I can find some better scanning sw, I'll keep using the Canon MP 500

1 out of 5 eggsLack of Connectivity

Pros: Never got that far.

Cons: I've spent the last nearly four hours trying to get this printer to connect to my wireless network. Connected to the wireless network are 2 TVs, 1 desktop, 3 laptops, an XBOX, a Roku box, a Vudu box, 2 cell phones, and a Samsung printer. So, I know how to connect wireless devices. A HP technician has been remotely accessing my laptop connected to this printer for the past 90 minutes, but has done nothing that I didn't already try in the previous two and a half hours. No well designed and well manufactured wireless devices should take 4 hours to unsuccessfully install on a wireless network. I'll get my RMA from HP and return this printer, but save yourself 4 hours of grief one Saturday morning and don't waste your time with this printer.

5 out of 5 eggsLove It!

Pros: We had a heavy duty Xerox machine in our office for the last 5 years, and let me tell you, as big and professional-grade as it was, our new HP is just as heavy duty, professional grade, and a whole lot sleeker. The wifi makes a huge difference. It was a cinch to set up on Mac and Windows, and now we're all printing locally.

Cons: I would say the only gripe I have on this machine is that there is no 2-sided printing option, but how hard is it to turn the page over? First world problem, I guess.

Other Thoughts: Buy it today. You need it. You deserve it. I'm buying another for the home right now.

1 out of 5 eggsHP HELL

Pros: It would have pros if it did everything the description said but I wouldn't know that.

Cons: Couldn't find my network, couldn't install drivers correctly because it didn't see the machine even when it's plugged directly into the computer, and it didn't scan or print.

3 out of 5 eggsFast printing Slow scanning

Pros: Very fast first page out on prints, easy to manage with Web based console. You can even download the driver from the printer to the pc from the web console.

Cons: EXTREMELY slow scans. I replaced a Brother MFC that was 7 years old and it was about 3-4 times faster scanning.
I tried direct via usb and over the network.
I tried HP, Paperport and Microsoft scanning software, makes no difference. I upgraded the firmware and the driver. nada.
Click scan or preview and go make a sandwich. Takes 32s before printer acknowledge request and 30s for the preview then about 25s for the scan.
Skip the preview and you are still talking about 1 min / page. B&W color the same.
Also other pet peeve the flatbed has to be opened all the way 90deg and has nothing holding it. The 7 yr old Brother had a support arm that locked at 45&90 deg and held it open this will just drop and crash down if not held or moved all the way up to 90deg.

Other Thoughts: Over all a nice unit but since I scan a lot it really is a PITA.
