5.0 out of 5 stars A tad pricey, bot worth it., 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HP LaserJet Pro M175nw 100 Colour Multifunction Printer (Electronics)
I've tested wired and wireless connections, as well as via Android apps and the simplicity in which you can install it on Windows, Linux and Android is astonishing. Coming from a Samsung all in one, this one is decades ahead in technology, build quality and feature-set.

Print quality is amazing. A bit on the dark side, but that's configurable, so no big deal. Even with the average Tesco A4 paper the paint is crisp, clear and permanent (unlike Deskjets).

Scanner quality is also amazing. You normally get that kind of quality on scanners that are worth more than the price of the whole 3-in-1, I was not expecting that. Again, the Samsung scanner was below average, on par with the ChinaTek standard that you get on 15-quid flat-beds, but not thus one. Truly HP quality, very pleased. There are actually 2 scanners (with the same optic device), one is the flat-bed and the other is the manual feed, which you can put many papers on top and copy all pages at once without opening the cradle, which awesome. You can also use the scanner through the wireless connection using the HP drivers.

In theory you can scan or take pictures with the Android app, I haven't tested that yet, but should just work like everything else.

The downside? It is a bit more pricey than most other 3-in-1s, but you pay not just for a printer and a scanner, you pay for the build quality, service quality and simplicity, which simply put, is decades ahead of the competition.

If you use Linux, the default CUPS driver that comes with most distributions will be enough for you to print, but not scan via wireless. Download the drivers directly from HPLIP website and happy scanning!

UPDATE: I have just used the Android scanning and it's nothing short of a miracle. Not only you can scan from *any* android device and automatically share/upload/email/print, but you can also take pictures with your phone camera at documents and it'll automatically detect the boundaries of the page, crop, stretch, skew and provide you with a flat version of it. Of course, ready to print/save/upload, etc.

I'm so amazed that I've increased my review to 5 stars. Now I know where the extra money is going. As the CEO of a company I once worked for used to say: It's the system, stupid! And in that, HP has outsmarted everyone else. Well done!
