I won't go through the capability of the printer, you can get that on the box. What I will go through is my setup experience, positives, and disappointments.
Setup was quick, as per HP, they are very proprietary software driven. Installation was easy and smooth, and printer was up and running quickly. Less than 15 minutes if you're lucky.
Printing is good, colours are as expected per printer, speed is also good.
Now to the disappointments, or where it didn't meet my expectations. To note, I come from a previous Epson WF3640 which is a next tier above this, so I was slightly disappointed when starting to use this device.
Scanning - 1 sided from feeder only.
- I find this extremely short sighted, it is not too hard to implement a 2 sided scanner.
- There is no process to use the feeder to scan a double sided document (which most are nowadays!)
Scanning to email/cloud
- My expectation was that I would be able to turn my printer on, scan it and it would arrive in an email I nominated.
- No way jose! Instead, I need to have my computer turned on, and when I 'scanned to email', it would scan, and put the attachment in an outgoing mail on my local email client (outlook or whatever your PC uses, which whatever email account is setup there). So - you will NEED your computer turned on for this function which defeats the purpose - if I'm going to have my comptuer on I might as well drag and drop it myself across the folders etc.
For the price paid, the printer is good value, but for the features offered versus implementation in reality, they have fallen short.
