Pros: Full color laser, scanner and copier. We homeschool and I consult as an engineer. All the plots are crisp and fast output for home office use.
I looked at the ink jet and other toner sizes but the HP131A cartridge seemed like the best value for the work I do. Maybe put through 200-400 pages per month.
Cons: You have to load software to use the scan to computer feature. Also, there is no way to set the default scan size from A4. The beginning black toner could have lasted a bit longer. Only will get maybe 700 pages out of it..
Other Thoughts: It is great to have the full color laser in the home! I didn't really think I would find all these ways to use it. I bought it on sale for less than $320 and bundled it with a new toner cartridge. You can find those sales all day long. Wait for another to hit Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It gives you an ADF and a flatbed all in one. The option to load ONLY the drive and not all the other software is great. The system plugged right up out of the box and I was scanning to Acrobat 8.0 pro in minutes.
Cons: I didn't load any of the software becuase I scan straight to Acrobat 8 Pro. The WIA driver is horrible! The software will only come up every other time. The TWAIN driver is the only way to scan with the ADF and even then the default is set to a legal (8.5 x 14) sheet. The only way to change it is to go into the driver and several mouse clicks later change the page size. But then you can not save the setting, so for EVERY job you have to change the legal size to letter size.
So if you are going to set up bunch of scan jobs, then you can run through them. But if you scan from time to time, each time you close Acrobat you lose all the settings!
Other Thoughts: I only purchased this scanner for the ADF. I have other specialized scanners for photos, and another for 35mm slides and negatives.
After having this propblem, I looked up the issue an sure enough, there are MANY people unhappy with this scanner all the way back to 2009! Why oh why did I buy this?!?

Pros: I purchased this because I need to move my entertainment computer to a wall with no hard wire network. I got it as a daily special for less than $18. The drivers installed with easy and I plugged it into the USB in the back of the computer. Unfortunately, I got a very low signal strength. I am only 40 feet from my wireless switch with 5 walls and a refrigerator in the line of sight. I moved the dongle to a front port on the case and the signal strength is booming! I have a 1.5Mbps DSL connection and I have no problem watching hulu, netflix, or CBS HD on my 40 inch LCD.
Cons: I found the Roswell Wireless Utility a bit confusing to use. Once I got my wireless switch added to the profile I had a much better time. Before adding the connection to my profile, I had to reconnect a type in the security info every time I rebooted the computer.READ FULL REVIEW
