Rated 1 out of 5Â by Scarletrose44 NOT as good as a laser - but fast & easy to use
This printer was marketed as good as a laser. Plus it has fast output and good wifi connection capabilities so I was sold! Sadly after two machines (the first I was told might have been a dudd so I returned it for another) I have come to the conclusion that this printer is definitely not as good as a laser.. and doesn't come close when printing text in/on colored images, printing on envelopes or general sharpness of graphics lines etc. It is pretty good on bw text alone but I recommend getting the appropriate paper for that.
It is, however, very fast; and connected seamlessly via wifi to my mac and iPhone5.
I now have an hp laser color mfp and love it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MsIT Enterprise Wireless functional is hard to set up
I spent nearly 3 days trying to just setup the wireless to connect to our Enterprise wireless connection and has no success. Called the Help Support and got routed to a tech who was unable to help me. I guess the next step is to try to connect directly to the network and try again. But I got to say the setting "Server ID" which required for enterprise wireless set up puzzle me abit and I have try using the wireless router/ as well the gateway with no luck.

We have had this printer for 6 months now and just purchased a second one. It is simple to use and the ink last a long time. While it cost more upfront than inkjet models, that is offset by the very low cost per page to print using this technology.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Legendary Great Printer, But Not That Mac Friendly
I have this printer on our network, and the speed and performance are the best that I've seen in an inkjet. It is even faster than my old LaserJet. It holds a full ream of paper, which is a big plus. It worked well with PC.... HOWEVER it is not that Mac friendly. With PC, you are able to fax from PC using printer SpeedDial, but with Mac, you cannot access speed dial from computer, only off of printer. It does give you the choice of using your Mac Contacts folder, but it adds the dashes in phone numbers (1-800-555-1212) thereby rendering the option useless, since printer cannot recognize and misdials every time. There is no way to strip dashes from Contacts numbers, so speed faxing from Mac computer does not work. The only way faxing from Mac computer works is if you manually type in the fax number, which is not that efficient considering you now have to remember all your contacts fax numbers. Hopefully HP will fix, because otherwise this is an awesome printer.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DanW1 Missing Office Functionality
I had an Officepro 8500 that had all the office functionality needed and unfortunately it failed under warranty. I was provided an 8600 as its replacement, unfortunately its office functionality was dramatically less than the 8500. So I purchased the x476dw based upon the product description it appeared to have the office functionality I needed. However, the ADF does not support mixed mode duplex scanning as the 8500 did, therefore it has similar lackluster office functionality as the 8600 at a steep price.
Granted, it is a much more capable and seperior quality unit than the 8600 however, its not just speed and duribility that small offices need, its the basic time saving functionality that is needed routinely.
I am very disappointed with HP and their reduction in functionality to manage warranty cost at the expense of their customers.

I just purchased this printer but so far it is everything you could ever want. The setup is so easy you can just about close your eyes. I can only say good things about this printer so far since I've only had it a short time
