Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 113reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to setup & use Setup & connecting to my network was a breeze. Tried several of the Copy & Print options with great results. Interesting how it knows what I want to do before I do. Love the way you can print or copy from the printer itself, or nay pc on the network, or a cellphone. September 7, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Some featurres don't work The machine prints well. Problems are with scanning from the computer. It also cannot find the printer much of the time. September 3, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Saves ink with very good results I had some difficulty getting this printer to work as a duplex printer. After calling customer service, very nice folks btw, we decided I should uninstall and reinstall the software. That did the trick. My only other concern is that the tray that holds the printed pages is very flimsy and could easily break. I am impressed by how little ink I have used when compared to the HP product I previously used. August 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed -- returned Downloaded drivers and while it would print from my iPads and iPhones, never got it to work with my desk top (Windows 10 on a brand new computer) - my primary source for printing. From my experience, I can't say whether I would recommend this printer as I returned it. August 16, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by wont connect wireless The printer worked fine for awhile then suddenly stopped connecting to the internet. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times, I am very disappointed and would not buy again August 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by printing When I print out a multiple page article, the first page comes out first so when I'am finished I have to sort through the pages to arrange then in page order. August 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent print quality. Easy setup Excellent print quality in color and BW. Easy setup. Connected to IOS and Windows devices flawlessly via WIreless. Connecting FAX and Ethernet cables cumbersome but that is only a onetime setup so not an issue. Excellent customer service. Highly recommend product. August 1, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not so sure about this printer... I just got this printer 2 days ago, after reviewing many multifunction printers. I purchased because of its lower initial cost and the fact that the ink cost is lower than most for this model. However, it has some pretty funky design 'features' which I would consider more to be flaws. The paper tray is the worst. Every time I slide it out to put paper in, it has to be coaxed back into the slot. Comes out easily but goes in like it was not designed to go in that way. I feel like I will break something by trying to get the paper tray back into the machine. Tonight I printed a multipage document for the first time. By 'multi', I mean only 4 pages. Twice it jammed, displaying a 'paper not fed' message. Indeed, I found a jammed paper each time I pulled the paper tray out and each time struggled to replace the paper tray. The paper feeds from the back so you MUST remove the entire tray to fill the paper.Who was responsible for hiding the various cable connections under the scanner? This is crazy. I had a hard time figuring out where they were, even after staring at the schematic for a while. I lifted up the scanner cover, expecting them to be there, but no. Finally, I lifted up the entire scanner assembly and there found 4 cable input slots (2 phone lines and a USB and an Ethernet port). Why would someone think this was a good place to put these? What was wrong with the traditional back or side, exterior of the printer, which has served us so well for lo these many years? I think someone just wanted to design something 'different' but did not really consider the practicality or logic of these choices.The wireless feature works pretty well and was not that hard to configure. I am still trying to work out the scanning feature, though. One of the reasons I picked this unit was its ability to do duplex scanning in one pass. I have not yet discovered how to do it.The jury is still out on this purchase. I saved the box, although it is outside in the hot sun, hopefully it won't be too faded if I decide to return it.
