Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly inefficient and frustrating machine I have been working in various law firms for over 8 years now and this is BY FAR the most inefficient printer/scanner I have ever seen! The button responses are really slow, the address book is really slow and it needs to initialize and/or calibrate almost every time you use it. Which means you have to stand there and twiddle your thumbs while you wait for the machine to prepare itself for a simple scan. I can literally walk to a different machine all the way down the hall and scan a doc in faster than I can when this machine decides to calibrate itself first. It does produce decent quality scans and print jobs, but be prepared to wait a LOT longer than you're used to for them each and every time. For the amount of money this machine costs combined with how incredibly frustrating it is to use, I would definitely NOT recommend it to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works well expect for Scanning We have our File Server on a Different Subnet then our copier, and scanning takes 10-13 seconds per page to scan! However, if your network scan folder location is on the same subnet as the Copier it worked great. HP support had no idea what the problem was, and left me scratching my head. HP's smaller unit M426 and our other scanners work perfectly fine scanning across subnet. Maybe was a Lime won't take a chance on any of there copiers now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So many problems whith this machine I own this printer but the sleep function causes probles all the time , you have to reboot the printer in order to wake up and that is some thing you have to do several times every day

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but slow at scanning I downsized to this printer as a cost effective replacement for my older HP model. It takes a full ream of paper which is good since I go through a couple of reams a week, at minimum. However, for an office that scans to email many times a day and which sends out multiple faxes, there probably are options that scan faster and have easier to use fax options.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should be easier to set up It is difficult to set up many of the features of this printer. To set up the unit on my WiFi network, II should have been able to turn it on, choose a WiFi network, enter the network password and go. Instead, I had to call tech support to figure out how to change the IP address, etc. The same was true for the "scan to folder" feature. The HP Utility doesn't have a "Browse" feature to pick the folder on my computer I wanted to download scans to. Instead, I had to enter the folder name with the entire path. If I entered a incorrect "/" or "\" the connection didn't work. Since the instructions are written for a PC rather than a Mac, there were no help to me. I am pretty tech saavy; so, if I had a hard time making all of the features work, I can imagine how difficult it would be for someone less technically oriented to install it. It was also very difficult to find anything of help on the HP web site since almost all of the help was written for a PC. The product does print great. If it weren't so hard to set up, I would have given it a 5 star rating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs well but loud. Good features and easy to use, but loud when running in small office space. Wish there was a way it would keep track of copies or printed pages for specific clients/users.
