5-0 out of 5 stars [HP OfficeJet 5510 All-in-One]
When it works it is a good machine, but....

I had mine for 4 days before it broke.I sent 2 faxes and printed 2 pages and then it went into this permanent paperjam - there was nothing stuck in the machine.I worked with tech support, reset the machine and was promptly told it had to be replaced.Fine then send me a new machine - but nooooo, i buy a new machine which immediately breaks and all they will send is refurbished because that is policy.

Nice

buy new machine which instantly breaks and get used replacement from the manufacturer - next time I buy a lexmark

4-0 out of 5 stars It's Not a Piece of Junk, but returns are common
The 1st 5510 I received wouldn't scan properly - so I had the unit replaced.The new one does ALMOST exactly what I wanted from it.I can now scan, fax, copy, email, & print multiple pages thanks to the document feeder.May be a bit slow, but if I wanted laser speed then I would've bought a laser mfc.Configuring the software for use with this printer was not rocket science, but it does require you to follow the installation instructions.Also, not all config options are available via software - for more involved tweaking you'll have to use the printer's panel.

I was particularly pleased with the photo quality of the print.I printed out a couple of photos using quality photo paper in both my Epson Photo printer and the 5510.I didn't expect much from the 5510, and was very surprised to see that it blew away the same prints from the Epson.

The only real complaint that I have about this device is that the fax machine is an either/all proposition.If you share a phone line with this device, the fax machine will usually try to intercept your call.I haven't found anything in the config to allow me to set the number of rings - just "on" or "off."

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of junk.Stay away!
Don't even consider purchasing this printer.The software is the worst I've encountered in the last 5+ years. Total junk.I have considerable computer expertise and couldn't get this machine to operate fully under either Windows 98SE, ME or 2000.The printer might work, but not the scanner.The thing might scan, but not print.The OCR never worked on the rare occasion the scanner did. More often than not the software would cause errors during boot-up.I had to repreatedly restore from an older registry to get the machine back up and running.Maybe you'll get lucky if you are running XP, but I wouldn't count on it. Installation errors galore...missing files...incoherent and often outright incorrect instructions given by HP on-line help. And the software takes up close to 1 Gigabyte! The software for the Brother MFC-210C I replaced the HP with takes up less than 10 Megs!It has all the functionality of the HP...and it works!!!!And watch out if you have to uninstall the HP software...that function doesn't work either.Even if you download the special uninstall program from HP's web site.You're left with HP stuff scattered all over your system.Stay away!You've been warned!!!The Internet is filled with horror stories.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Multifunction Printer
This printer is excellent.When I bought it I was hoping and praying that I would like it and not have any problems with it.Sure enough, this printer turned out to be a great investment for us.I have no problems with it and it has been a year since I bought it.Alll four functions (copier, printer, fax and scanner)work well and the color is clean and crisp.Personally, this multifunction printer is great for me and my family.I love it!

3-0 out of 5 stars Printer seems oky doky
Ok I got mine and installed on a fresh computer, with new WinXP Home Service pack 2. (All updates from Microsoft were added before printer install.) I also build computers.
Followed directions about NOT plugging in printer until software is set. (I get the feeling that some people did not do this.)
The printer works VERY well. All-in-ones used to do everything poorly. (Bad print quality, low res scans, blotchy faxes...etc) This all-in-one seems to do it all very well. (I agree with everything said in the main review on this printer.)
Still agree with some people that the software could be better. I don't like to have extra icons on my startup, eating up resources, when I could just run the software when I need it. I like to have that option.
Also the only other big gripe I have is when I use Quicken to write checks. The paper is loaded face DOWN. So when I go to print checks, I have to get ONLY the number of checks that I have to print and put them face down on the feeder. BUT if I have only one check left on the 'last' sheet I have to make sure it gets pushed up to the paper feeder, while its on the 'bottom' of the pile. The printer will then print the last check first, on up to the single 'first check'.
BUMMER
The Epson I used before I just grabbed a slug of checks and put them in the feeder and it would just spit them out...in ORDER!



For the people that had trouble, send that printer back and get a new one. (A few just sounded like they were bad.)
But before you try installing again, scan your computer with an UPDATED virus scanner.
Next get into IE and go to tools and click on Windows update, make sure ALL the Win stuff is up to date. (You should be doing this once in a while anyway.)
A new install would be the best thing, but people tend to not want to wipe out their drives once a year.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product but installation may make you annoyed
I'm an extremely experienced computer user and I had issues with installation, even by following the instructions. Eventually, I ended up resolving my own problems after about five hours of time. Specifically: The "step by step" instructions were fine, until the next step "click next" didn't apply anymore. The installer was freezing, and if I allowed Blue Screens, was clearly crashing. I have a number of USB devices and spent hours trying different configurations, none of which helped. I downloaded the updates online and installed those, which continued to be problematic with not much offered in support in help, documentation, or by phone (banker hours, long distance support) and I dreaded trying to get this done by e-mail. Through sheer persistence I resolved whatever my conflict was, which was clearly as USB conflict, but the consumer should expect the same. It's no joy of life to debug this, I'd dread what your Aunt Lila would go through trying to sort this if she received this as a birthday gift.

That said, the product is fantastic once it gets going. I am more than pleased with the copying ability, and for my purposes the photo quality is more than acceptable.

Users which claim Epson printers have a low life expectancy are correct, but I usually plan on replacing them every two years anyway. It's par for the course. At the market price for this all in one, if you get a year out of it you've done well. Make sure you use it atleast once a week to keep the jet tubes cleared and you'll be better off.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great overall value
I purchased this printer to replace an HP Laserjet Multifunction unit.Overall I am very satisfied with this model.I was initially looking for a simply a new inkjet printer, but purchased this due to the low cost.Consider this model when comparison shopping.

PROS:
- Fast print speeds, excellent print and scan quality
- Flatbed scanning and copying; scanner cover can be removed to accommodate a book or larger item to scan or copy
- Photo-quality borderless prints - looks like a postcard
- Unlike HP, Epson has separate ink tanks for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, so only replace when needed
- Card reader allows printing from card, AND can transfer images to your computer using USB 2.0 (elimilates need to waste camera battery)
- Can copy or print from memory card without a PC
- 150 sheet input tray

CONS:
- A bit noisy when feeding in paper, but this is typical of any inkjet
- When one cartridge is out of ink, you cannot print without replacing it

2-0 out of 5 stars Clogged printer heads can't be cleaned, Dont purchase
Loved my Epson All-In-One printer until it just went over its year waranty.Then the printer would not print even though the ink cartridges were 70% full of ink. The Epson troubleshooting guide said to replace cartridge with new ones when cleaning the printer heads mutiple times didn't work. I wasted money buying 4 Epson replacement cartridges and still not getting the printer to print.Gave 2 ** since the scanner still works.Fortunately I have a backup HP printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great All in One Device
Great Speed, quality color and b/w prints at low cartridge cost. You can print, copy and csan documents/pictures, and even Fax with any software fax utility like MS Word Fax.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away from Epson, especially the CX line!
About a year and a half ago I purchased my CX5200 to replace a nine year old Epson Stylus printer. I don't print that often and was getting down to the end of my second set of replacement cartridges when the ink on the paper started to smear. I tried a few head cleanings, but the problem persisted. Next I replaced the black cartridge and, SURPRISE, no more black. I then replaced magenta...no more magenta. I did some research and found that all the Epson printers get clogged jets after a period of time. I bought the Epson cleaning solution and tried that. Now pretty much nothing works. I can't wait for all these five star reviewers to come back in a year. I will never buy another Epson printer again since this problem seems to be huge with their printers.

My advice to anyone, stay away from any Epson product. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Works great until XP SP2 walks into the room
My home office is a mixture of Mac, Windows, and wireless network environment. The installation went well on both the Mac (OS X 10.2) and one PC (XP SP1), and I have assigned a fixed IP address to it althoug dynamic IP address works well, too.

Immediately ran into trouble of using its scanning function after I've installed the driver and MFC Pro Suite onto my 2nd PC (XP SP2). The solution center on the Brother website does not offer too much help, neither they have respond to my email. And seems like there is no certified drivers available for SP2 from Brother for the moment. So now the only way to work around it is to scan the document by using the 1st PC then transfer it to the second PC which I am using most of time.

Besides this hassle, I think this machine is the best one in the market for its price and functionalities, and I will highly appreciate if someone here can share the solution of dealing the scanning trouble with XP SP2.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Machine!
After trying three different Multifunction machines, (2 HP's and 1 Epson) and returning them, I've finally found one that does what it is supposed to do.I currently have a Compaq laptop and Powerbook G4.This printer was a breeze to set up on both.The scanning feature is wonderful.All of my scans have come out true to the original.The fax works great, never had any trouble sending or receiving.The only problem I can come up with is that when you are printing color documents, they can be pretty slow.Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm in love
My desk at home was getting a bit crowded (a fax machine here, printer there, scanner, etc.) so I decided to do a bit of shopping around for a multi-function printer.I practically spent the whole day viewing the various printers Amazon has to offer and at the same time, reading the comments associated with these printers.I then came across this Multi-function unit that absolutely caught my eyes. I instantly loved the look of it and when I read the reviews, I was sure this is what I wanted.Am I glad I bought it on March 17, 2005.It stands so attractively on my desk waiting for me and set up is a breeze, not to mention meeting all my expectations with not even a gliche.I love it!!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Geek Review
PRO:
* Cheap
* StandAlone Print/Scan/Fax/Copy
* Can Print/Scan/Fax/Copy over a network
* Has multimedia card reader
CON:
* Install failed to work. So I had setup everything manual.
Might need a geek to help you set this application up. One big problem I had with it is that if you are using DHCP to assign IP addresses to machines on your network. When your printer get another IP address you wont be able to print.So you have to assign it a IP address.
* Printing not that fast. Print quality is average.
* To access multimedia card you have to use FTP to connect to it.
* Photo printing on it is mediocore.

Conclusion:If you dont want spend a lot of money on multifunction printer than this is the right one for ya.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great multifunction
There are many color print/copy/scan/fax machines out there, but surprisingly few that are easily networkable. This one is. It's easy to set up the PC software on networked machines, easy to get the Brother working the network, and even easy to scan to networked computers. Easy easy easy. I was going to get an HP 7410, but CNET user reviews of the software scared me away from it. I'm happy I went with the Brother. I just wish it didn't look so much like a collection of leftover parts from Beige Plastics, Inc. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I disagree with the Negative Reviews
Hi,
I have to disagree with the negative reviews. I have read all of them and it seems that, aside from two that had Software issues, or maybe a bad machine, the other negative reviews were from people that had special needs, or were using this for not what it was designed.
I needed a scanner so I bought a printer.As a rule, I don't like to buy the multifunction machines, not for any specific reason. But I reviewed and searched and I found this printer. Again I was skeptical as it was a multifunction machine.
I had no problem with the instalation and the software was not a problem for me. I use a home made PC AMD 2400, and I am using XP Pro. I have not had a problem and it has been flawless.
I like all of the features it has to offer. The Scanner, and the Card reader is especially nice I was surprised as to how well that works. That was a plus, I thought it would work but not spectacularly, I was surprised, it works great.
To go back to the scanner it is great it will make excellent copies with a single push of a button. You can make copies with out the computer being on. It is a simple push of a button and a copy is made. Very nice.
Printing photos is easy also, and again a PC is not really needed. The printer scans from a Media Card (it will read like all of them). You see the photo in the window, and select and print.
The only problems I have found. The black ink cart is too small. The paper 'catching part' of it is lacking. I wish they could have redesigned that part. But it is not a big problem as I would not down grade it for that.
The absolute biggest drawback is the paper feed is too small, I am always having to add more paper. It seems like the feed tray is too small. Again I am happy with it so much I can live with that as well.
It is a very nice size, and price. All of the parts of it work so well. It is a printer I will use for a very long time.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is great printer but underrated -- please read!
This has been a great all in one printer producing quality documents with clear, clean text and graphics on many types of papers.It prints excellent copies, makes beautiful greeting cards, envelopes, photo's of all sizes - borderless and not, and makes nice scans.

I chose this model PSC2355 because I did not need a fax but wanted the LCD screen to be able to use this printer with or without my PC as my camera is older, without PictBridge and I liked having these options.You can get this model HP printer without the LCD and you get have this model with the LCD and with a fax!

Installation went well and was quite fast.Seemed like less than 15 minutes total.I use Windows XP with cable.To use my scanner after installation, I clicked on start in my taskbar.From there, I clicked on scanners and cameras which brought up the HP scanner icon with model number.Double click on the icon and it opens the welcome box to the scanner and camera wizard. Click next to continue and when that opens, choose your picture type (I like "custom" for the scan quality) and then click "preview".This way you can use the sizer so not to scan all the white of the lid surrounding your scanned piece (for example: a 4x6 picture).Warning: 2400 does take considerable time!On the next option it asks you what you want to do so choose your 1 of3 options and click next.Then you can view your scan from that menu or click finish and open the file later but clicking finish opens the folder automatically for me.I didn't find installation hard or buggy - not at all.It had to be intuitive because I am an old woman and not that computer smart but I had no problem understanding this installation.No buggy software for me.I did not get a bunch of unwanted software installation but I did load the CD for HP image zone and find that I like it for a quick enhancement and printing option.

I find that I MUST use the PHOTO cartridge when printing photos!!You CAN use ONLY the tri-color and black cartridge that come with the printer and you will still get nice pictures but if you are the least bit finicky - as I am, you WILL WANT TO USE THE PHOTO CARTRIDGE!It will make the world of difference in your print quality!Also, and especially if you do not use any photo imaging software, you just might want to dabble with your printer options because on those "special" pictures, you REALLY WILL see a quality difference when you learn how to tweak with these options.Wow, I have produced stunning photographs utilizing many different features.Please note:this printer uses only the newer Vivera inks. Number 95 or 97 tri-color, 94 black and 99 photo.

I am very happy with this printer.I don't know what this nonsense is when people say it won't print in color or it prints lines.Something is wrong but it may not be the printer...

During the past 8 years, I have owned a Canon, an Epson and HP and have been pleased with all three.I prefer HP because I like a new printhead each time I change a cartridge.

No matter what I did, all my printers used gobs of ink and cost an arm and a leg.I had various problems with all of them yet they were all nice printers.However, I do like this model all in one because it does a bit of everything.If you are buying this just for the scanner for old family pictures and film, then this is not the scanner for you.It gets the job done and can even make great scans, providing your original is good quality but it is not a dedicated scanner for photography professionals and enthusiasts.This all in one is a great printer but is simply providing you with more just to give a little home office for a lesser price.My opinion is to go for a dedicated film and photo repair scanner if you expect to fix old film and photos.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Printer, Bad Software
HP hardware is generally good stuff- lasts a long time, does a excellent job, and looks nice. The HP PSC 2355 is no exception. The quality of the printing is top notch, it is very intuitive to use, and image slots as well as screen are useful features. I especially like the fact that the print-head is built into the ink cartridge. This brings up the cost a little, but well worth it, because you are getting a brand new print-head every few months (this was a big problem with my old Epson).

For an all purpose printer, I am very pleased. It prints quietly, and quickly. I was looking for a printer that does decent scans, copies, printing and pictures at a reasonable price. This does all of that wonderfully, and the small size is very convenient too.

Of course, there is one big problem, and that is the HP software. Setting up this software is absolutely HORRIBLE. It is amazing how incompatible the HP printer drivers are with the HP digital camera drivers. I spent hours and hours trying to solve problems with HP technical support; they are absolutely useless. First, pictures wouldn't download properly, then the computer and printer wold not communicate correctly- the list goes on and on. HP Tech support failed to solve any of my problems. I had to do it all on my own.

In summary, the printer itself is great, once you've got it up and running. But to get to that point, namely installing the software, is a feat in itself. Buying this may not be the best idea for those who don't find computers intuitive.

Important to note: This does NOT come with a USB cable to connect to a computer! I luckily had one from my old printer, so it wasn't a problem for me.

5-0 out of 5 stars You might want to consider the HP 1610
After studying very carefully, including specs, reviews, and even manuals, I bought the HP PSC 1610. It's quite a bit less expensive. The only difference I could find is that you can't see the photo from your camera on the 1610 screen (you just see printing). But, if you're doing most of the photo editing on your computer, I can't see any reason to spend the extra money for the 2355. BTW, I just printed a 4 x 6 photo on the 1610, and it was excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Solution for Home or Office
After researching printers for the past month, I finally decided on the HP PSC 2355v. I am a photography minor and wanted a printer/scanner that would be as good as the digital darkroom here on campus. This scanner actually scans at a higher rate (5 times higher) than the $900 (3 years old) scanner in the darkroom. The printer (with the additional color cartridge) actually prints my photos much, much better than the VERY expensive printers in the darkroom.

This printer's dpi is as high as any all-in-one printer under $600. I bought mine at Wal-Mart (of all places) for $178.88. I know that if I have any problems then walmart will take it back...something to consider.

Overall, I am very, very satisfied with this purchase. I highly recommend this machine. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Shorter life span than expected
We bought this item new for our office a little over 1 1/2 years ago for $550 (the cheapest price we could find it for at the time) and it served us well, up until it quit working. The copies are a little slow, but it does have many helpful functions etc. I am giving it only two stars because even though it was so versatile and met all our needs it lasted less than two years and cost us $550. (That's over $275/year!!!)

4-0 out of 5 stars Noise Levels not for the faint of heart!
I bought this for our home office/homeschool to replace a dinosaur, the HP 150 color copier. We shopped for a machine like the 150 that would simply make decent inkjet color copies and to our dismay found that most manufacturers are producing "multi-function" devices with the weak link being the copy function. They were all so slow as to be unuseable for making 100-200 copies per week. I finally found the 610 on-line as a "replacement/upgrade" to the 150. It arrived this week.

Set-up was straightforward. The footprint is a bit larger than the 150, but it also makes copies up to legal size so the scan bed is larger. It has a tray to feed originals into and a "two-sided" copy mode that works nicely. The quality is only mediocre in "fast" mode (my mode of choice for most copies). When set to "fast", text is a bit blurred, though certainly legible, and colors are noticeably subdued.it is decent/acceptable in "normal" mode. I have only attempted copies of pages with text and moderate graphics-no photos as yet, but my guess is that it would not be a great photo copier. The graphics I've printed are not extremely accurate.

The speed is acceptable, although it seems cumbersome and slow for single copies. But after initial warm-up/head cleaning and for multiples it is much quicker than the 150. Color copies produced at a rate of about every 5-6 seconds in "fast" mode.

The downside is the noise. It literally sounds like it is coming apart. I had a transmission go bad in a car once that was almost as loud as this copier! Thankfully, it resides in our homeschool room and not in my office where I make business phone calls. It would be impossible to talk on the phone in a 12' x 14' room while this thing makes copies.

The other big downside to me is the lack of Mac driver support. So far there are not even any "gimp-print" drivers available. I hope HP will correct this and produce drivers for us Mac users.

My final verdict is that it satisfies my need for a decent copier. With a hundred dollar rebate, making the total purchase around $300, the price is about right.I have no idea about some of the advanced features like collating, banner printing, etc. Most of these I will never use. All in all, for what we'll use it for, it's a keeper.

5-0 out of 5 stars So Far So Good
I selected this model after a long search and comparison of high-end home/small office copiers.This one is loaded with features.If you want a copier in this price range that COLLATES, then this HP 610 is your ONLY choice.I almost went with another brand that claimed to collate, but only by scouring customer reviews did I learn what their advertising conveniently omitted: collation only works in black and white.If you are buying a color copier, what ... good is that?

Some other competitive models WILL collate color, but ONLY if the copier is connected to a computer.But I bought this one for my wife to use for materials for her Kindergarten class, and this machine will be a stand-alone copier for the near future.I already have a multifunction printer and a photo printer connected to my computer.The copier will be in another room by itself.

Setting up was easy.I did run into two small glitches:On step 7(4b), the instructions say "Push the printhead handles down".If you've seated the printheads properly, then they are ALREADY pushed down.This is unclear, and you could unnecessarily break one.When they didn't seem to budge, AND everything seemed to fit ok, I assumed they were already pushed down, and it turned out I was right.

The other glitch: Step 9, "Align the printheads".As the very last step you press the "Enter" button to align the printhead.A message appeared on the display, something like "Starting Process" (I don't recall exactly).Then the machine just sat there, apparently doing nothing.

While I was waiting, I searched through the manual trying to see if they mention how long this would take.Not a word.Finally I gave up, and tried to shut off the machine, but the power won't go off when it's in the middle of something.Finally, I took a chance and disconnected the power cable.When I powered it back up, it announced it was aligning and immediately went into action; only then did I know for sure that I did the right thing.

The few tests I ran on the machine went without a problem.I'm giving it 5 stars because of its great capability and so far it looks wonderful.I did not appreciate that this machine, out of the box, does double sided copying.Thats right, it automatically can copy BOTH sides of an original (if it starts in the ADF) and print BOTH sides of the copy.And, you can choose to do 1>1, 1>2, 2>1, or 2>2 copying.All, hands off.

The machine is slow and clunky.It has the most far ranging and bizarre assortment of wierd noises, clicks and clunks, you are sure the machine disintegrating inside, or some parts came loose and are systematically destroying the machine.You'd be better off being deaf; then you'd just notice that the machine is SLOW.

Its particularly slow when you are just making one copy or so.It is more at home when you have to make 8 copies of a 10-page color document, and collate them.That is a start-and-forget operation.So, this machine is less than ideal for a busy office, but for home use, the slowness and oddball noise is no big deal. ...For home use, this IS a very expensive machine ...but for a busy office not on a tight budget, you may actually want to step up in class.

I had a Canon PC-20 copier for 18 years before I bought this one and put the old Canon out on the curb.That Canon ... was R-U-G-G-E-D, and still working when I said goodbye.The HP is far lighter, and presumably flimsier.They just don't mak'em like they use-ta.I do worry about the durability of this machine, and there is some indication that it will prove to be sensitive to the paper that goes in through its feeders.So be careful.Make sure your blank paper is clean and perfect; if your originals are not in pristine shape, use the fixed platen rather than the document feeder.

Lastly, HP's reputation for quality and customer support has slipped in recent years.That is why I looked so hard to find an alternative model....I always decline extended warranties, but you might want to take a closer look at one if its offered where you buy this machine.

I'm giving this machine 5 stars, but remember, I've only done about 25 copies total on this machine.....

Enjoy. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Error 41 Help
I just ordered my FOURTH replacement from Brother. My original purchase was Sep 2003. After #2 and near the end of the 1yr warrantee, I purchased the extended warrantee which served me well for the $70 (or so) it cost me. Brother assured me that this replacement will have the new-improved printhead. I may renew the extended replacement coverage just in case. I realy like the machine and want to keep it. ERR41: I unplug it, wait, plug it in again and keep using it like this till the replacement arrives.

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of JUNK! Fatal error exactly 2 months after warranty.
I bought this printer for a friend. It was refurbished, but it still had a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase. The printer worked flawlessly for the most part within the warranty timeframe. Some two months ago it began complaining that some of the inks were low, even if they were full or new. Just weeks after the ink problems, the machine displays on its LCD "MACHINE ERROR 41... CALL BROTHER". Having come on this website by accident while researching this error, I am surprised at the amount of people with the same problem. Now I am convinced this is all made intentionally, no way something completely stops working immediately after the warranty. Repair costs are simply not worth it at $150 to $200 dollars. The most ingeniously evil plot about this error is that, in essence it blocks the whole machine from being used. Can't print, scan, fax, copy - nothing. The only thing you can do is throw it into the trash if you don't want to dish out cash to fix it. Absolutely evil machine, along with its creators. Never Brother again, they clearly encase rigged errors to poop the device after the warranty. Next I will go with Canon, maybe HP if the price is right. But HP tends overprice their printers way too much, and for the longest time they did not even offer borderless printing like Canon did for a much lower price with their machines.

1-0 out of 5 stars With a Brother like this, who needs another enemy?
I received the ink empty message, only a million times.Before the ink was empty, when the ink was empty, and after the ink was replaced and FULL!I finally got that cleared and almost exactly one month after warranty expiration, I received, 'Machine Error 41'!I think it's rigged.There's no burn ban where I live, so I'll get some satisfaction out of saying, 'BURN, BABY, BURN'!

1-0 out of 5 stars Sigh, another victim
I use google and type in Brother looking for their website or some info on a machine error 41. No luck. I go to Amazon, as I assure myself someone will have the Brother Customer service line or some kind of helpful hints on how to fix my issue. What do I see....Machine Error 41 on almost every review. Just hilarious. I've been suckered and have 100$ of worthless ink and a piece of junk sitting on my desk. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MACHINE!

4-0 out of 5 stars I got error 41 but replacement service was excellent
I bought my 4420c printer in Oct 2003 and had no trouble at all for the first 9 months, through reams of printer paper.Then when using it for an increased amount of printing than usual, I got the message Error 41.After a little trial and error with the same result, I called Brother and they sent me out a replacement, a 4820c instead.I got the package in 2-3 days, with a mailing label and instructions to pack up my 4420c in the same box and have it picked up.Initially I thought this better model was just a loaner while mine was to be fixed, so after I didn't hear from them I called them.They said I got the 4820c because they didn't have any 4420cs, and that it was a swap, not a loaner.So I was very lucky, but in their defense, I have had the 4820c (which they warrantied until the end of my original 1 yr.warranty) now for 6 months with no problems.It's a much better machine, and if it lasts a reasonable period of time (like at least several years),I would certainly take another chance on them, based on their service.I'm sorry others had such a bad experience. Maybe some heads rolled. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars lot more than desktop printer, love it for its full features
I used it only a few days, better than I expected, reliable, straight forward, no training needed.30page adf on a table top copier un-heard of. printer has more features than I ever wanted on tabletop unit: overlay for office letterhead, also useful for watermark office logo, multipage print for record keeping in a tight space, toners are dirt cheap in the aftermarket, and hear good quality responses. I will find out soon. I may buy another for my home, if it goes on sale.

3-0 out of 5 stars Expensive printer - Good for home use only
Canon D760 is a great printer as long as you connect it physically to a PC.Of course, very few buy a $600 printer for home use?A printer of this class is typically a network printer, shared by many, in a small office environment.If you are planning to network this printer using a print server, Canon D760 just falls short of expectations.Canon officially supports only AXIS 1610 model print server (through parallel port). The Axis print server retails for $200.Note that cheap and reliable alternatives like D-Link and Netgear print servers will not work with this printer.Though printer itself supports USB port.However, the USB port works only when it is connected through a PC.So, you cannot use a USB port print server with this product.With so many limitations (Many of which I did not even know, when I bought it), I would not recommend this product.

5-0 out of 5 stars D760 - Great copier
Great copies, turns on for immediate copies, turns off by itself, very quiet.

3-0 out of 5 stars Canon D760
I bought this copier/printer to network with my computers. Like anyone who had computer experience I went and bought a print server. After many frustrating hours, I called Canon to find out the problem. I was told that the only print server that is compatible is the Axis 1610. I have looked at the manuals and the documentation. I have searched the web and NO WHERE does it state this. I feel a bit betrayed that this information is not stated anywhere.

However, as a ADF Copier it is fast and efficient. As a printer, the first page out is slow but all subsequent pages are quicl to print. Also, note the pages come out face up and therefore you must designate reverse order printing.

3-0 out of 5 stars Canon 761 does not supportLinksysPrintservers
Just purchased the Canon D761 printer/copier (feb 2004). This unit only supports two print servers... and I never heard of them.So it is not "generic" to most servers and should not be purchased if you need that feature.Reasonable printer and copy quality. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Not the quality you would expect from Xerox
I also regret buying one of these machines. I intentionally chose a Xerox because I thought the name meant reliability. I don't think that anymore. Despite very light use as a home copier, this machine has presented problem after problem. Paper feeding has always been sporadic. Then after two years, the plastic gear on the fuser broke. Fortunately the machine was repaired under warranty. Now however it has broken again: it won't feed paper at all from the main tray.

I went through all the diagnostic and repair steps on Xerox's Web site. When the problem persisted I contacted online support. The response? -- to simply cut and paste the same instructions. A call to telephone support was equally unhelpful, resulting only in an offer to schedule a service call for $250 minimum -- half the price of the copier. I'm more inclined to spend the money on a new one, of a different brand.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Expensive to Use, Maintain, and Repair
I bought the Xerox XD105f Digital Copier and Laser Printer two years ago.When it works, it produces clear, clean copiesand it does so quickly.The auto-copy feature is helpful for big jobs and the reduction/enlarge feature is also useful.With that stated, here is the bad news. Soon after I purchased the system, the bottom paper tray stopped feeding paper.I had to use the side tray to make copies. Then the drum started to print smeary black streaks along the edge of the paper.I changed out the print cartridge, but this didn't fix the problem. And the cost of the cartridge? Oh, about $189.00. I then accessed the Xerox support web site and downloaded the instructions for cleaning the drum and inkwell.I followed the instructions - which were pretty simple - but it didn't fix the problem - it made it worse.Not only were there more streaks on the paper, the streaks contained powdery black ink that just rubbed off. Finally, the printer stopped working altogether.

I spent several hours online trying to find an authorized Xerox Repair Center in my area, but none exist. I checked the Xerox web site and sent an email to the Team Xerox folks.The answer I got back, "if my product is still under warranty, they can send a repair person out for a $250.00 service call, not including parts and tax.Or, I could get a reconditioned unit, but keep my drum, print cartridge, and power cord to use."

Does this sound like a good plan to you?

No, I didn't think so either.

I retired the Xerox 105f to the garage and immediately purchased the Hewlett-Packard Officejet 7110.Not only does it cost 30% less than the Xerox product, it does a lot more - it copies and scans in color, prints (with reduction/enlargment), and faxes.And the ink cartridges cost around $30.00.If I have a problem with the H-P, I know where I can get it fixed.

Granted, the technology has moved on since I bought the XD105f, and perhaps I cannot make a fair comparison with a new product, but if the Xd105 had performed as expected, there would besome customer loyalty here.Sorry, I decided on an H-P.

Thanks for listening.

1-0 out of 5 stars XD105f Digital Copier/Printer - failure
I am very disappointed in this product. It has all the features that I was looking for - computer printing, copying from glass screen and from document feeder. I experienced paper jaming and grinding noises. I wasunable to clear the jam or the grinding noise, and face the probability ofhaving to send the product back for service. A relatively expensive homeprinter/copier should perform better, and be more reliable than this one.

1-0 out of 5 stars don't bother
The print quality is good but everything else stinks. It doesn't print legal nor does it print full letter (it crops the letter unless you scale it down to 91%).Everytime you go to copy it always has to "warm up" (for an inkjet??) which takes about 30 seconds.So if you want to just be able to make a quick copy...forget it. It also has a nasty tendenacy to paper jam, especially when doing multiple copies.

2-0 out of 5 stars Make a Careful Selection
Purchased the HP190 1 wk ago basically on the strength of my strong previous experience with their printers. Found immediately that the machine doesn't copy any original larger than letter size...(my own fault), but then also found that it truncated my documents and left off the last line on a letter page and in my case, a crucial line.Shouldn't a copier that has a setting for 8 1/2" x 11" actually copy that size?I thought so too, and returned it for a Xerox XD100 which is a WIZ machine.I lose the color capability, but have about the best copy you can get anywhere!

4-0 out of 5 stars It's on my wish list...
...because it produces beautiful color copies, as well as crisp black& white copies. I don't own this copier (yet), but I had the chance tosee it in operation at my friend's home office about a week ago. He wascopying 8 x 10 color photos with this copier, and even on 20 pound bondpaper, it was a very close copy. The two-on-one feature is great if youwant to copy both sides of a hand-out onto one side. It works like a charm,as does the resizing feature. I gave it four stars instead of five onlybecause I haven't used it over an extended period and don't honestly knowhow it will hold up in typical use. I've already recommended it to anotherfriend. ...

When your small office requires a professional-quality color copier, theHewlett-Packard 290 provides the most important features you're likely to need,in a value-priced package. With rich color reproduction at up to 9 copies per minuteand fast black copies at up to 12 cpm, the HP 290 copier includes enhancedtext and gray scale for crisper black-and-white images than desktop analogunits provide. Copy resolutions deliver 600 x 600 dpi for black and 1,200 x1,200 dpi for color. HP applies CopySmart II digital technology to delivera scaled range of 25 percent reduction to 400 percent enlargement.

Other features of the HP 290 include two-on-one copy mode, clone mode, andmirror mode. Versatility is important in a business copier, and the HPcomplies by accepting a wide variety of media sizes and weights, includingletter, legal, executive, envelopes, index cards,labels, and custom sizes, plus 16-to-36-pound stock in plain, photo, glossyor matte papers, transparencies, and iron-on transfers.

An input tray capacity of 150 sheets reduces refilling and permitscontinuous copying, while the included 30-page automatic document feederspeeds your progress along. HP estimates a costof $0.07 per copy. With compact dimensions, the unit takes up less spacethan many printers in its class but doesn't sacrifice sturdiness.

Hewlett-Packard backs the 290 digital copier with a three-year warranty. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good copier at a very good price.
I bought the HP-290 about 3 months ago and since then have used just about all its features. This is a very good copier, expecially considering the price. The copy quality is top drawer. On more than one occasion, after making a copy and returning to my desk, I have been perplexed as to which was the original and which the copy. Even multi-color, multi-shade originals are copied with impressive fidelity. The machine is small and compact and the footprint does not demand much space. Setting it up is a breeze and the controls are all on the front panel, ready to hand and quite intuitive. Bear in mind though that this is a SOHO machine: if you regularly need to run large copy sets, as in a regular large office, the speed will frustrate you. As long as your copy needs are not too heavy, the HP-290 is terrific. I have only one quibble really and that is the document feeder. Somehow the engineering design at HP goofed this one. The unbalanced way that the original is positioned in the document feeder means that you frequently need to tap the edge of the sheet so the rollers can grab it. This can get annoying and that is why I deducted one star. I also think Amazon needs to tie up with HP to offer a servicing package at point of sale. I had to buy the machine of the Amazon site and then go to HP for a servicing package - since it is off the HP website, surely Amazon can offer it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Copier
I first purchased the HP 190 which is the same as the 290 except the 290 has a document feeder. I got it home and found that for some reason the copies from the 190 were not even. Meaning that for some reason the copy was not centered it was skewed from left to right. I went to the HP website and found some probable causes but nothing worked. I went to the store where I purchased it from and then to another and all of the display copiers did the exact same thing. Why? no one knows. I then tried the 290 and besides being impressed with the document feeder, everything was centered correctly. All of the features work great, the photo mode makes the copies look almost as good as the original, the best that I have seen. Black text is very sharp and quick. The clone mode allows you to put one picture on the copier and it will clone that picture and make as many copies that can fit on the paper, very cool. This copier is outstanding, colors are crisp, photo's are great and the document feeder works great. If I were to rate the 190 I would say that the quality is great but who wants skewed copies (I am not positive that all of them do this) I would rate it 1 star. However the 290 does everything great and deserves 5 stars. (quick note, if the 190 did not skew the picture it would recieve 4 1/2 stars. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice little multi-station while it worked
I didn't really use it for scanning or printing purposes, but the copying function worked quite well until recently (lifetime of about 3 yrs).During copying function now, there seems to be gear grinding noises .. but copying is still functional.Toner is expensive, at approximately 1 hundred dollars.

Pros: Cheap, small footprint, not-heavy, copies at moderate speed.
Cons: Starting to malfunction at 3 yrs time (can be expected, cheap product), toner is expensive

3-0 out of 5 stars could be better
My mom bought this as a gift for my dad for Christmas. We were using it as a copier for a few weeks because our Epson 440 was having problems. It is an excellent copier and I highly recommend it for that. The printing feature cuts off a little bit on the side though. Also when doing anything that involves feeding paper, the thing tries to feed about 10 sheets of paper at once(happened to me 2x). Then, to get the paper out if you can't pull it out, you have to take out both the toner and the drum and then pull it out that way. Then to load paper, there is a lever that you have to pull up to load the paper instead of just sticking it in and leaving like most things. And aren't a B & W scanner and copier exactly the same thing? It also tends to distort pictures a little bit(making faces shiner and weird). It's ok for light use, but definitly not a big business copier. And it doesn't come with a USB cable so if you want to use a color printer with it too, you must go out and buy a cable for that. An ok buy-not recommended for big business use.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad product, crappy software, worst tech support
First, Xerox claimed that they support Windows 2000 Professional, which was totally bogus. The "new" driver for Windows 2000 on their website is the one for Windows NT4. Tech support was the most imcompetent bunch I've ever seen. I was told conflicting stories by 3 different reps. Then the last person I talked to stated that USB connection only works on Windows 98, and does not work on WinME or 2000. It was funny the person I talked to before that said Windows 2000 only works with USB connection. Oh, they DO NOT ship a USB cable with it. If you buy the damn thing, you have to run out buy your own USB cable, only to find out it does not work. This WorkCentre only functions as a walk up copier right now. I would advise any who are lured by Xerox's cheap price and sales promotions to reconsider. If you look at the drivers on Xerox's web site, it have not been updated since 8/1999. I guess that is why Xerox is having finacial problem.

Small, easy to use. Supplies are a bit expensive given the fact that they have to be replaced every couple of days. ... Read more

Everybody wants to save space and reduce clutter while maintaining theoffice equipment that a business needs. The Xerox WorkCentre XK40c provides acomprehensive space-saving solution. With ink-jet black and color printing,flatbed scanning, and black and color copying in one multipurpose unit, all ofthe functions that your business uses are available at the touch of a button.

The WorkCentre XK40c is an impressively substantial, sturdy, andprofessional-looking unit with easy-to-understand operations. We got a kick outof the enclosed user's guide, which was a Xerox copy with a brightly coloredfront and back cover--a great way to show off the product. The guide is heavilydetailed to ensure a trouble-free setup, so we recommend taking time to reviewit. We found the directions to be clear and comprehensive.

Setting up the WorkCentre XK40c was easy. We dropped in the two printcartridges, connected the cables, and installed the software. In just a fewminutes, we were fully armed for office operation. The WorkCentre XK40c copierworked well as a standalone, producing fine copies at a maximum 8 ppm for blackand 4 ppm for color, although we found that it took more than a minute per pageto get the color quality we sought.

We especially appreciated the reduction and enlargement features offeringvariations from a 25 percent reduction to 400 percent enlargement in 1 percentincrements. However, there seemed to be no way to leap up to the higherenlargement sizes without going through the smaller sizes first. We mademultiple copies, up to 50 at a time, on a variety of paper types and sizesincluding letter, legal, and envelopes. A range of adjustments allowed us tonuance the settings for best copy quality.

The WorkCentre XK40c is not designed as a high-volume copier/printer, but wethink it can satisfy most of the basic needs in a small office. You'll stillwant to use a copy shop for large quantities or top quality. --BarbaraPrice
