In the end I didn't buy this from Amazon as the delivery lead time meant I was going to be without a printer for nearly two weeks - so that was a bit disappointing. However, the review is to assess performance and overall the outcome has been good.

In summary:

Easy to set up physically, unpacking (apart from vast amounts of bright blue sticky tape), paper and cartridges easy to install.

Once you have it connected to the internet DO A SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE UPDATE from the unit itself before you do anythng else. If you don't it will make it much harder to connect to wireless laptops etc. If you do it finds them and connection is easy.

It stays connected (or so far seems to) - my old HP printer used to go offline very regularly and had to be deleted and reinstalled every time. So far no need.

Print quality is good, but not first class.

It will print from an iphone using AirPrint, but the connection is less reliable than other devices, you often have to walk into the room where the printer is installed before it decects it, but it does work.

The duplexer is useful, effective and saves paper.

The ability to print from e-mails is great - basically you can send an e-mail, with an attachment from any device, anywhere in the world and it will get processed and both the mail and the attachment printed for you. There is seemingly not much of a time lag in doing this, so anything in the day should be waiting for you when you get home. Just make sure your attachment is properly formatted and fits on pages well, before you send.

Overall a good product with good features, recommended unless you want to do a lot of very high quality colour printing.

This is a very capable printer. It connects wirelessly on your local network. After appropriate firmware upgrade and configuration (very little documentation available), you will be able to use Apple airprint and HP eprint. The cartridge is very small, and you need to expect to purchase new cartridge fairly soon.
The fax machine is a very powerful, sufficient for small business. By connecting your telephone to the phone outlet on this printer, you can combine the telephone and fax into a single line.
You can use the scanner to scan Isa to the memory card or your computer. You can scan directly from the printer, with several scanning format. There is a butane OCR software, and you can choose RTF format on the scanner.
The printing can be set to double sided. The auto feed for scanner and copier only works on single side.

I have purchased and used many HP Printers over the years and there has always been a consistent theme - the hardware is great, but the software tends to be poor. This printer.....almost breaks the trend, but not quite!

It was easy to set up and install everything. The display even has nice touches like showing you a little video for how to install the cartridges. Twisting the plastic protectors off the new cartridges was about the hardest part and that was okay after the first one.

Configuration was very easy and it connected seamlessly to my Wifi router. The software installation on our PCs and laptops also went really smoothly. Each time the installation correctly identified the printer over the wireless connection. It also didn't seem to burden my PC with unnecessary items in the system tray.

Scanning works fine and its great to have the document feeder that lets you stack up a number of sheets to scan, fax or copy. The duplexing unit works fine as well, though its funny to see the paper partially pop out of the front to let the ink dry before pulling it back in to print on the other side.

So - what is the fly in the ointment? Printing Envelopes!! The list of supported paper envelope sizes is miniscule! Standard english envelopes such as DL size are not listed. To make it worse, there is no option for creating a custom size!

I contacted HP online support who, after a bit of explaining, eventually understood my issue. They then pointed me to a web site showing the specification for the printer and that DL envelopes are not on the list!

I expressed my disappointment to them and said the situation is ridiculous for HP customers in the UK.

This printer was a replacement for a single-sided printer that I had. I wanted to save paper and save on lever-arch filing space! Double-sided printing works well.

This printer is good, but on my Mac combined with a Netgear router, wireless printing often encounters niggles and there are really frustrating delays! It just sits there and infuriatingly waits in between pages. I suggest reverting back to USB for print speed consistency. The software on the CD is needlessly bloated too - I suggest just using the Windows/Mac drivers that your computer already has.

Compared to my Epson, it's quite noisy (I thought I was going to be upgrading in this respect!) It likes to keep you waiting before and after print jobs making all sorts of funny noises.

ePrint took me ages to set up and involved trawling forums to find out how to reset the system quite a few times but it now works on my iPhone/uni PC most of the time. Some print jobs just get lost in the ether though - don't rely on it.

HP are really cheeky and supply you with INTRO cartridges which ran out so quickly, be sure to order a full set along with the printer. I think the full size XL cartridges will work out to be very good value for money in the long term though, so that's a bonus.
