SO SO

For the limited time that I have owned my machine is seems very acceptable. except.......The construction is too bulky. It takes up most of the limited space we have in our computer rooms or corners of our extra room. If it was half the size it to be a greate buy. Without the FAX.

Issues with paper jamming
December 23, 2012
By dfrye from Atlanta, Ga
I like the printer but do have several issues:
1: Biggest complaint is it easily jams. This is especially true with heavier paper like photo paper. Fanning the paper helps but can still jam.
2: After a paper jam you lose the page. It does not reprint it and it may start printing several pages later. This makes printing multipage documents harder since you have to figure out what pages are missing and have to deal with trying to print just the missing ones out.
2: The Google print support breaks easily. I'm constantly having to reconnect manually the Google print. It won't stay connected. It acts like it's connected but I can't print to it. I have to disable it and then enable it again to reconnect. (FYI, I had to upgrade the firmware with a download to get this feature.)

I wish it had a manual page feed. Big pain to load a sheet of photo paper to get a quick photo. This is compounded by the issues with the paper jamming so much.

I also don't like that it forces you to wait about 15 seconds after every copy. Makes copying multiple pages (that can't be fed via the document feeder) take a very long time. My old HP didn't do this. I talking about after the scanner has already homed the light bar.

Defaults to FAX so that you have to press the copy mode button before you can press the copy start button. Drives my wife crazy. My old HP defaulted to COPY. We copy all the time. Hardly ever send a fax. Why is it defaulted to FAX? This has nothing to do with receiving a fax.

I wished it would empty the ink cartridges before complaining about out of ink. Ink is expensive! Don't nag me (or my wife who nags me until the messages go away) until the cartridge is empty. I expect the printer to have enough ink to print for awhile after the cartridge is empty.

Good Purchase

The printer was easy to set up. I like the sizes of the paper it accepts. It is not as crisp as I expected, even on the BEST setting. But I have recommended it.

Very Versatile All-In-One
December 11, 2012
By BigBobbyT from Maryland
I got a really good buy on this printer about a year ago and it has performed extremely well. I have done everything except duplex printing, and I have no complaints about any of the features. I especially was impressed in being able to send print jobs from my IPad. Due to a router problem, I recently disabled the wireless and switched it to direct print from my desktop, and all the features (fax, copy, scan, and print) continued flawlessly. It's a great machine! The instruction book can be a little daunting for a casual user, which is why I only gave it four stars and not five!
