Great for iPad2 and ease of set up
on 6 February 2012
I bought this printer for my Mother who is computer phobic but does have an iPad2 for photographs and email. I set this printer up at the weekend and it linked into her wi-fi network like a dream - by far the easiest printer that I have ever had to set up. Printing from her iPad is also very easy. You just press the action button (button with an arrow) and the print option appears. The HP printer was enabled without us having to do anything further. I left my mother happily printing photographs of her grandchildren. [As an aside, I previously bought a Brother printer that claimed to work with iPads but would only do so via a special app. This extra step baffled my Mother and, in addition, the Brother could not print emails.]
The print quality was fine. The noise level was accpetable. The speed of response was OK as well. I should have preferred a better build quality but printers are so cheap that the trend seems to be to expect only a short shelf life.
We also had a play with the copy function and this worked very easily and the instructions were clear and simple. I did not try the scan function as it is unlikely that my Mother would ever use this.
This is a great printer for home use.
