Greating Touch screen, not as impressed
on 22 August 2010
The printer is great, however compared to my old HP PSC1200 series all in one, this is significantly bigger!! I was expecting something around the same size. The paper tray not being able to fold away or even be removed is annoying. The one thing I can not fault is the touch screen display, it is great!! Obviously single buttons are self explanitry on the PSC1200 but the touch screen is just as simple, just its away with 1 touch copying, and now about 2-3touchs copying but for now its a joy to use the touch screen. Printing works flawlessly through WIFI. (I have 4 notebooks in network and other mobile devices) However scanning, you are REQUIRED to have HP software installed (I wanted to install whole set up without cram down HP rubbish) and even with software installed, it does nto always work flawlessly, you have to open the software which is loads up minimised on the system tray on ur computer just so the scan to computer recognises a computer is present. The best bit I discovered, I had a spare 99p mini bluetooth dongle (the really small cheap ones) and I put it into the pict bridge USB port on the printer and presto, my printer now has bluetooth connectivity so do not feel like you need the chunky HP ones, this small discreet one works a treat!!
Printer can be little noisey but so was the old 1, Printer is quite big the psc1200 was very compact, software issues meaning technology stil is not flawless
gd points: print quality is good, wifi printing works flawlessly, touch screen is great, ink prices are fairly good.
