Rated 3 out of 5Â by Techwise OK Except for Scanning
Overall, a pretty good printer. It's fast, print quality is good, it's quiet, and uses less power than my laser printer. I'm using the latest firmware (April 2014) but still occasionally experience a printer error where all the panel lights flash. Easy to fix by powering down and restarting.
I recently tried to scan photos and found I could only set the resolution to 600 dpi. After trying all the options I could think of, I called HP tech support to find out why I could only set the resolution to 600 when the printer is advertised to be capable of 1200 x 1200 dpi. After first being told my printer is defective since I could only go to 600 dpi, a third person, who was to setup a replacement printer shipment told me the datasheet and other places where 1200 x 1200 dpi was reference were wrong. He said the printer really can only scan at 600 x 600. This is not just half the resolution of 1200 x1200 but one fourth the resolution. Strange that after all this time, no one has found this misrepresentation in the printer's specification. I suppose it's because the printer's main claim is in its speed. Unfortunately, I bought this as an MFP and really need the scan resolution. I wish there would be a fix for the resolution but I suspect the printer was not able to meet the 1200 dpi spec during its design and the datasheet wasn't updated to reflect the lower scan resolution. I may return the printer and find one that can scan and print for what I need.

I have had this printer for approximately two months. It is worth paying a little more for the savings in printing costs per page over the live of the printer. The double sided printing and wireless printing is also a plus. I have owned many HP printers over the years and this is the best one yet.
I was considering buying the Laser Color printers but the higher cost to print per page made this purchase an easier choice. This printer also is much faster than the other Color Laser printers I reviewed.
This printer is not cheap but you get what you pay for. I believe this printer is worth the extra money, and I don;t need to keep a second printer to help save color laser cartridges if I had opted to purchase the laser printer. The printing quality is great on even the cheapest papers from Costco.

The printer arrived faster than expected, which was a plus. Setup was very easy and the print speed is awesome! We are very pleased with the printer!

Although this machine's copy/print functions are great, there are issues with both the facsimile function and (now) the scan function.
After being unable to get the facsimile to work (out of the box), I hired a tech person to come to my office to troubleshoot the facsimile function. He did so along with HP tech support on a conference call. After a substantial amount of time, they jointly reached the conclusion that the facsimile could not function through the digital cable telephone line provided by COX and that I needed to switch to an separately designated analogue line. Such a conclusion means that if a purchaser uses digital phone lines the purchaser will be required to switch carriers to a non-digital company and thereby designate one line solely for a facsimile.
In regard to the scanner, it worked well; however, yesterday, I updated Windows 8 to 8.1 and now the scanner does not work.

I have one of the smaller versions of the OfficeJet Pros and the 576dw blows it out of the water! I needed a faster scanner to go along with speedy printing/copying. Not only are these functions much faster, the black printer cartridge is lasting MUCH longer than with the smaller printer. Have not had a paper jam. No problems whatsoever. Networked without a hitch.
If you are able to pay the extra, it is worth the money ten-fold.

I was a bit apprehensive about going from a LaserJet to an InkJet, but the print quality and the SPEED of this printer blew me away!!! It is truly 2x faster than any LaserJet I have seen and the print quality is pretty darn good as well. If you are looking for speed and good print....this is the printer for you. I can not say enough about the speed!!!!
