by Bothell41 on 6/12/2012

We are a small business with 2 locations and 3 employees with relatively light printing needs overall. We overbought to get the best priniter we could find in the $400 price range to handle small business needs. This printer is a replacement for the same model that we previously used -- that one was so bad it had to be returned, with a huge amount of hassle on the end of HP (the lack of customer service regarding that return was downright horrible). This replacement works better, but has many bugs, often interupts itself to "clean the printheads" which takes several minutes, and when faxing, if the receiver's fazx is busy, you cannot send another fax to a different recipient without cancelling the fax/scan. There's a way to scan into memory but only if you program that fax to send at a later time which is not fast and easy to do when faxing to multiple customers with multiple faxes. It's an ink hog and it's toner is expensive. Paper jams frequently. It's wireless networking, scan to email, and scan to network file is very difficult to use. Your PC or laptop has to be on to scan to email or scan to network file. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
