Rated 4 out of 5Â by lawpracticeuser A good machine for black and white light office
Works fine, was easy to set up. Prints good quality quickly enough for me. Pleasant surprise is that the scanning is so quiet. The scanner controlling software is pretty simple. Have used for about one month, we'll see how it holds up and how efficient it is with cartridge refills.
It's so hard to figure out the perfect purchase, but I'm pretty sure this one is close to as good as it gets for affordability and quality for light office use for black and white printing, copying, and scanning. I don't need a fax, because I have an on-line fax service or I just e-mail a scanned attachment.
One quirk: it took me forever to figure out which button to push to make a copy. It's the button below the red 'x'.
haven't figured out how to make the scanned filed type default to pdf
had a separate feed for envelopes (have to swap out the regular size paper to print envelopes)
came in a color other than heavy black

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Mega1 Print is good, but fax is difficult to use
The manual envelope feed requires too many steps. I didn't have to push an ok button on my last 3 in 1 in order to print an envelope. The numeric pad is too small, and the pad folds down if pushed too hard when punching the numbers. The toolbox is only on the console and not on the computer as well, making it difficult to fax easily or to move through all of the options. The window to read the toolbox options is not lit up, the writing is small, and it is extremely difficult to use it or to read it without a magnifying glass.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Meyooow Fax, printer great, scanner not compatible
The fax and printer function are great. The scanner is not compatible with Windows 7 and I had to do some searching to figure out a way to scan from this machine so I did not have to send it back. I found a round about way to be able to scan to save in a j.peg file and scan to "paint". It is a pain and many extra steps need to be taken to scan than should be necessary. Keep this in mind when thinking about purchasing this product. If I am having difficulty with Windows 7, I am quite sure I will not be able to use this if I wanted to upgrade to Windows 10.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by rjhjph ADF Motor is loud
This unit works well, and performs fairly well, works well with Mac if you a Mac's built in programs or scanning into Acrobat. However, the motor of the ADF (document feeder) is very loud and cheap in comparison to my previous HP AIO unt. Trying to find a different model with a much quieter motor.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by masterleep Nice printer, bad Mac support for scanning
This printer looks like a nearly perfect solution for home business, except for one thing. It does not support the native Mac OSX scanning features, instead providing a barbarous HP scanning software relic from the mid 1990s. If you want a scanning experience that Steve Jobs played a hand in, you may wish to look elsewhere.
It is surprising since HP scanning software is well integrated on OSX for the cheaper inkjet machines.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by EddieN Good Quality Print - Poor Life
Good quality print but have had problems with the copy feature whenever using the automatic document feeder (ADF). The ADF worked great for both copying and for faxing for approximately thirteen months. Then, it started producing a vertical black line, about 2â in from the right margin, on all copies and faxes. Scanning directly from the glass, without using the ADF, however, produces clean copies and faxes. Because of this, it appears that the problem is internal to the ADF unit. Unfortunately this particular printer is now out of warranty and there is no helpful information or suggestions forthcoming from HP. My suggestion is that you either consider this printer a short-term investment or look elsewhere for a better product.
