So far few paper jams with the auto document feeder; print resolution is good for text; physically refilling the starter ink cartridge supplied was not completely successful, however, an original HP replacement cartridge (£16 for the extra capacity black) was refillable easily using a syringe/ink kit cheaply available elsewhere.

The machine works nicely as a standalone fax, copier (copying - which is slow- using black ink only IS an option unlike some HP all in ones,) HOWEVER, forget about one touch scanning: the custom software suite required for this, is very badly programmed and will use up all of your processor power; therefore, realistically, scanning requires using the scanner wizard built into Windows (click " scanners " in the "control panel" to access this), or, using "paint", both of which give the option of scanning from the platen or from the automatic feeder (as well as a few other useful options such as greyscale, custom resolution, etc). My memory being faint, use of said basic applications may require the "basic scanner driver" for this scanner, downloadable from the HP website.

Likewise, forget about "advanced functions", such as checking the ink level, and other things provided by the "software suite", because you really do not want it installed on your computer, at all, trust me.

It is very cheaply built. However, having paid for this unit, barely more than the cost of a cheap printer, I am delighted with it.

I'm using this as a network printer / scanner. Haven't tried setting up the fax yet. It's not the most sturdily built machine ever but it produces good quality prints and is compact and reasonably fast. The one thing it doesn't do that I miss is auto-duplex, and I feel it could do with a separate tray for the output rather than laying printed pages on top of the feed tray. Having said that, it's never jammed on me or anything like that. Some of the printing preferences user-interface is annoying but you get used to it. Check availability of it's 901 cartridges before buying - they don't seem to be the most popular.
Fantastic value for money.

this is a good cheap printer/copier/scanner/fax. Have used all functions and they all work well. Print quality is good, easy to use. Not particularly robust, not suitable for printing large numbers of copies. Poor paper tray/catcher system. Ink supplies not as readily available as I would like.

I originally received a faulty printer and had to send it back and a replacement was sent with no hassle, it has now been set up and in perfect working order.
I am pleased with my purchase and I would also like to praise Amazon for the way that my faulty printer was dealt with, a second printer was sent even before I had time to send the faulty one back. Excellent customer care!

What can I say! Rubbish!

Lasted 5 days and printed 1 page and scanned 4 pages then started returning messages of 'Scanner Failure - Unable to copy, scan or fax'. Quick search online reveals many more people with the same issue and no help from HP.

Does what it says on the box. Very easy to set up and install. I only wanted to use the print/scan/photocopy facilities which was not a problem. The USB lead from my old Canon fitted perfectly was way able to easily bypass the fax.

This machine looks good, is easy to use and cartridges can be sourced relatively cheaply. It doesn't take up much room either. All in all, an excellent buy for a small amount of cash. Highly recommended!

I'm surprised to see there are some people who get along with this printer. I absolutely hated it.

1) Firstly, the paper tray is located in the same area the printed copies are pushed out from and our printer kept letting those be sucked back into the printer and then it would jam and turn itself off. You then couldn't turn it back on for about 20 minutes when you had to then try to rip the paper out and start again.

2) Putting more than one sheet of paper to copy in the top tray at a time also confused it and again it would try to pull multiple sheets in, jam, and shut off for 20 minutes.

3) When trying to use the top tray to copy things it would first try to scan and pull through a blank sheet of paper before eventually realising it should be pulling it from the top tray. Saying this, sometimes it would realise and use the top tray from the start. It seems to be a bit 50/50 what method it's going to try.

4) It would randomly suck through multiple sheets of paper at a time, sometimes resulting in a jam but more often deciding to print a blank sheet between every printed sheet you try to copy.

4) The black ink didn't print very well and it was extremely noisy.

All in all a horrible printer and luckily we could send it back.

This printer is very good for the price, and also very easy to configure. There are a few things I don't like that much, for instance when you print in draft quality the printer goes so fast that it throws the pages away. The first time it even hit my face. Now I prevent myself and stay by the printer, taking the pages myself. Also, when you scan a picture you can select the output resolution, but you can't when you scan a document into pdf, then it only takes the default 300ppi, which turns out to be about 1MB per page of the document.

Appart from these two things, I think it is a brilliant network printer and it is more than worth the money I paid for it.
