Top customer reviews
The first machine I received was dead on arrival. The print head was blocked and black print had white stripes through it which cleaning cycles did not resolve. I had excellent service from Amazon who replaced it quickly.
The second machine worked fine, but I was initially disappointed by the print quality. Despite using pigment inks, the print wasn't sharp on the page, and black text was very noticeably grey rather than black. There was a clear contrast between this machine and the L7680 I was replacing: the L7680 could print black text sharper and with a much deeper black than the new device, despite being six years old! Over a couple of days experimenting, I found that the paper type made a big difference to the quality, which is unusual for pigment inks. It turns out that HP recommends using paper with (it's own!) ColorLok technology, and that did give much sharper results and black was truer black (still not as good as the old L7680, though). ColorLok paper is available from many manufacturers (not just HP) for only a couple of pounds a box more than the paper I usually use, so I accepted that I'd just buy different paper in future.
Later in the week, I tried to do some copying of a couple of pages from a book. It was a double-page spread, so the pages weren't perfectly flat on the glass across the spine. This had never been a problem on the old L7680, which produced some of the clearest, sharpest copies I've ever seen from any device. However, the new machine's copy was dreadful. Anywhere the book hadn't sat perfectly flat on the glass, the copy was blurred. I researched this online and discovered that HP now uses CIS scanner heads in place of the CCD heads in their older machines. The only reason for this is cost: high end standalone scanners still use CCD technology because it gives better quality. The problem with CIS is that it can only focus on the glass itself, and any object that's slightly above the glass -- like the book spine -- therefore comes out blurred. CCDs don't have this problem and can focus for some distance above the glass. I tried copying the same page with the old machine, and it was massively better quality (despite the fact that the printer needed a new head).
In the end, I concluded that despite being HPs top of the range OfficeJet Pro device, HP has done too much cost cutting. The ink in the older machine works better across different paper types and gives sharper results, and the CCD technology in the older scanner gives much better results on anything other than single loose sheet copying. So, I returned the new machine to Amazon, and bought new printheads for my trusty L7680 for less than half the price of the new machine! They arrived this morning, and the L7680 is now as good as new, and producing much better output than the new 276dw did.
Overall, I was very disappointed with the 276dw. I'd hoped it would be at least as good as the earlier HP device it was replacing, but this proved not to be the case. I hope that HP sorts this out before my L7680 finally has to be replaced, because otherwise, I'll have to look elsewhere.
After scanning family pictures, this device will serve mainly as a scanner for a home office that needs to be as paperless as possible. The software will scan to text-selectable PDFs and will do so at an office-standard 200dpi.
It will do some printing, although tests so far suggests that it needs a REALLY sturdy table (an office desk, or a workbench) to rest on. Domestic furniture might not be sturdy enough for this printer. The speed and torque with which it throws its ink cartridges around typically rocks domestic furniture, which in turn causes the printing to fall out of alignment. The resulting print has the "lawnmower strip" effect going down the page.
You need the original HP software to run this scanner-printer properly. Download the software directly from the HP's website. You'll need to install it on every workstation that needs to use the scanner on the same network. Using this software, you can scan-to-server, scan-to-folder, scan-to-email. That said, you could use it as a stand-alone scanner saving to a data stick (via USB port or SD card port). For best results, you need the software. This is particularly the case for scanning-to-folder, because the software can do so within the limits of the typical user account on, say, Windows Home Premium. It's not worth trying to share a folder on Windows 7 Home Premium (or later) with the scanner, because Windows makes the process far too complex to be safe: use the HP software instead.
