    5-0 out of 5 stars DID SOME RESEARCH...BEST BRAND/ PRINTER!
    After hours of research on every brand of printer (Epson, HP, Lexmark, etc.) Canon was the overwhelming and best choice.After deciding on Canon, I purchased the PIXMA MP 750.This being the newest at the time, early 2005, was also the printer with all the features I needed.
    I almost got swayed into an Epson after finding out how bad HP reliability is but found out that Epson has some problems with their Print Heads going bad and/ or drying up.This is an expensive problem from what I understand since not only the print heads are expensive but only a "trained pro" can replace it.On Canon printers, anyone can change the print heads, although I have not heard of many problems with Canon print heads.Also, on any printer, Always...Always turn the printer OFF when not in use.Do not allow ink jet printers to stay in an on or standby mode for long as this will allow any printhead on any brand printer to dry up. If the printer is off, the printhead is automatically covered to extend the life of it.

    To address an issue that it took me a while to find out...WHY IS THE 5th INK A 2nd BLACK INK?The second black is a black ink to enhance photos mainly.It is a PIGMENT black ink (ie. Epson DURABrite inks) that Canon says increases the quality of the other four Dye-based inks.If you are thinking that you have seen many other printers with the option to have 6 inks for photos...dont worry, this printer, with its ultra-fine printhead, does the greatest job of any HP, Epson, or other 6 ink printers!

    THE GOOD...

    Great looks,
    THE best paper handling system out there...no jams,
    Ease of use,
    Two paper feeds,
    Photo print quality is the best...even with only 5 inks,
    The Finest/newest print head in the price range ($200-250),
    Flat bed and sheet fed batch scanning,
    Individual ink tanks,
    Good software bundle

    THE BAD...

    None after 2 months of use!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Which Canon Multifunction is right for you?
    First off, if you're in the market for a printer, you can't go wrong with a Canon.Canon printers consistently beat out the competition in independent tests for print quality.Their items are elegant, well designed, and most importantly, ink is affordable.

    We all know the razor and blade scheme: sell the printer below cost and make it up with pricey cartridges.Canon, however, saves you a lot of money by including the print head with the printer and not on each cartridge.Because of this, genuine Canon cartridges can be had for around $12, while 3rd party cartridges, which many claim work just as well, can be found for as low as $2.

    If you've already decided on a Canon multifunction, lets see which model is right for you.Canon's current market list is as follows:

    MP130 - New model, and the most affordable yet.
    Copy/Print/Scan
    18ppm black, 13ppm color
    2 ink tanks
    No auto sheet feeder!
    Card slots

    MP390 - Has a fax, About half the cost of the MP7xx's.
    Copy/Print/SCan/Fax
    18ppm black, 12 ppm color
    2 ink tanks
    card slots

    MP750 - Older model - exactly the same as mp780 but no fax.
    Copy/Print/Scan
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    Built in Duplexing

    MP760 - New Model - geared towards photo enthusiasts.
    Copy/Print/Scan + Special Photo Features
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    No auto sheet feeder!
    Built in Duplexing
    *Unique photo features:
    2.5 inch lcd screen
    Built in film adapter for 35mm slides or negatives
    can print directly from negatives
    Card slots

    MP780 - Does it all except for the mp760 photo features.
    Copy/Print/Scan/Fax
    25ppm black, 17 ppm color
    5 ink tanks
    Built in Duplexing

    Now, let's look more closely at some key differences between these models:

    *Fax: The first thing you should do is decide if you need a fax or not. If you do, you should choose between the MP780 or the MP390.If not, don't rule those two out just yet, they may have have other features you can't live without.

    *Note: There is NO auto fax/telephone switching on these models if you wish to use the same line for faxes and voice calls.

    *Number of ink tanks: The next important thing you should look at is whether you want to be able to replace each color individually or not.The MP750, MP760 and MP780 all have 5 individual ink tanks (photo black, black, cyan, yellow, magenta), while the MP130 and MP390 have only 2 (black and tricolor).The cost of each cartridge is about the same, but you will waste some leftover ink by throwing out the MP130 or MP390's color cartridge when just one color runs out.

    *Photo printing: If you're planning on printing a lot of photos, you should probably go with an mp7xx.These have a superior print head, as well as the 5 separate ink tanks.The MP760 is especially noteable with all the features Canon has added specifically for photos.These come at a price however, as the MP760 does not share the auto sheet feeder of its MP750 and MP780 cousins, or the fax of the 780.

    *However - If you plan on printing directly from memory cards, beware!The mp750 and mp780 do not have card slots!The 2 cheaper models and the mp760 do.

    *Auto sheet feeder: The mp130 and mp760 do NOT have an auto sheet feeder.All 3 of the others do.An auto sheet feeder is very useful when doing a lot of scanning or faxing.

    *Duplexing: The mp7xx models each have built in duplexing.

    *Size: The mp7xx models weigh around 30 pounds and are quite big.The MP390 is a smaller, and weighs 18 pounds.The mp130 has a tiny footprint for a multifunction printer, and weighs 14 pounds.

    Some features that all of Canon's current MFPs share:

    *Copying: Each of these models has a copy function, and all have the same resolution (600x600 black, 1200x1200 color).
    *USB 2.0 connection
    *Pictbridge direct photo printing support
    *All 5 models are great looking and will complement almost any decor.

    My recommendations:

    If you want a great price on an excellent printer and don't need a fax: MP130

    If price is an issue but you still need a fax: MP390

    If you can afford an MP700 series and don't need a fax, card slots, or the MP760's photo features: MP750

    If you need its exclusive photo features (but no fax or auto sheet feeder): MP760

    If you can afford an MP700 series and need a fax (but no card slots and none of the MP760s photo features): MP780

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well designed multifunction
    I had originally planned to buy the Canon MP130 but chose this model instead since the launch of the MP130 in the US was delayed. In retrospect I am glad that I went with the MP750 despite the increased price and size. Print quality is generally excellent, especially when printing on treated inkjet paper. I keep regular cheap paper in the bottom cassette, and keep the nice stuff in the automatic sheet feeder, which makes it easy to switch. The printer is also very quiet compared to other inkjets I've owned, and does not have as long and obnoxious a startup/warmup sequence either. I like the fact that I can replace each color ink cartridge individually. The scanning and copier functions are quick and produce high quality output. I frequently use the double-sided printing option, which ends up saving a lot of paper.

    The only minor complaint I have at this point is that the unit emits a very slight hiss whenever it is plugged in (even if not turned on) -- I believe this is from the flourescent tube in the scanner. Then again, I have very sensitive hearing and it doesn't bother my wife at all. The hiss is generally most pronounced right after the scanner is used, and then fades away (but never disappears completely). Still, something to consider if you're thinking of putting this in the bedroom. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very satisfied
    This is my first multifunction printer/fax/scanner/copier. I'm very satisfied with the print, photos and relative ease in setting up my machine. The photos are much better then what I got from my Epson C80 or Dell 720 and the print appears to be as good as what I get from my (workhorse) HP 5MP laser. A very big selling point for me was the cost of replacement cartridges. Reviews are available elsewhere. I liked Consumer Reports review for one. I have one problem to fix... I was able to send a very nice crisp fax from home to work but haven't figured out how to configure, wire it, with my DSL so that it recognizes a fax as opposed to a voice call.. The manual says to ask my DSL provider... Ha!

    1-0 out of 5 stars WARNING WARNING THIS IS JUNK
    I own a small business with 3 locations. I have 6 HP G85 multi function machines and was looking for replacements as they are getting old. I read alot about Canon and many people bragged about how great it was and how wonderfull the multi cartridge system was. So I bought one.BAD DEALfor me The color copies compaired to any of my G85's SUCK their BAD. I actually had more than one customer over the years try to pick up their drivers license from my desk when it was actually the copy of their license. There is no Mistake on the Canon it dosent represent real life at all. I use VOIP and the HP g85 has no problem faxing. On the Canon it will almost never fax over VOIP. On my G85 it has a director program so that I can do maintenence and add fax information from my desktop. No such thing with the Canon Pixma. The copies are marginal in quality compaired to the Hp G85. Its the worst printer I have ever spent money on and do not recommend it to anyone. I called Canon for help and got NOTHING from them. They werent wiling to or couldnt help me with the questions I had about the machine. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DO NOT BUY THIS. If you have any questions please call me Ed 3109436377 Ill be glad to stand behind and back up what I have said here.

    LCD instructions are in Japanese. Directions require you to read Japanese to change the language setting!Really.No answer to this on web tech support. to get to tech phone number, you must go to web first.Phone support not available on Sunday night. We need it for homework due tomorrow.

    software to register on the internet does not find internet, even though there is a cable link and all other web links work.

    Drivers will not install.tried twice on this win xp computer.

    might print nicely, I would not know.I would not give it any stars for tech support.installation software stinks.big $300 paperweight wasting my time.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Almost there, but not quite
    Strengths: This AIO manages to combine excellent performance both in text and photo mode at a very good cost per page. The scanner is good, producing some very fast and crisp results.

    Weaknesses: Very large. Software subpar. Output door won't open if the surface the printer is sitting on is not perfectly flat. Front buttons can be accidentally pressed when scanning books/bound material.

    Summary: I'm a former HP AIO user that was tired of the high cost per page of the HP products. So this time I decided to try the Canon AIO. The Canon Pixma MP780 is basically a photo printer at heart with a decent scanner thrown in. I think this hardware is without doubt some of the best being made right now. But this product has a huge downside, software. The drivers, scanning and printing software included with the MP780 are sub par at best.


    Here are the software problems I've encountered thus far:

    Scanning software: - No auto correction for angled scans. - The "simple" interface does not allow for any other options for DPI settings besides 150 and 300 DPI. You have to use the "advanced' interface for any other DPI settings. The "advanced" interface is not a good choice for novice users. (just ask my wife)- After scanning you still have to "accept" the scans in another dialog. Very annoying. (Why can't they just be put into the output folders as you go?)

    Printing Software: - The included "Easy Photo-Print" software cannot print multiple images from differing folders. All images have to be in ONE folder for it to work. - The "Easy Photo-Print" software cannot print TIFF images. Even though this is the default format from the scan software.

    Printer Driver: - Mostly ok, but the interface is very pixilated. Reminds me of an old 16bit windows application.

    All in all this could be the "killer application" if the software package was re-written. But as it is, it's just an exercise in frustration.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great choice for an all-in-one...
    I had owned an Epson all-in-one. Worked great for about a year, then had massive printhead clogging issues. Buy an Epson -- you'll eventually regret it.
    Got a Pixma MP780. Very happy with it.
    The build is sufficiently robust. Controls are easy to reach and understand. Print quality of photos is outstanding. Regular text printing is very fast.
    As the other reviews here have mentioned, you can EASILY AND INEXPENSIVELY REPLACE the printhead. Someday, no matter which printer you're using, you'll have to do this. This Canon makes it very easy. (Epson makes it very expensive)
    I'm on a Mac running 10.3.8. All software worked as expected. Upgrading to Tiger 10.4 soon; we'll see if it breaks anything/everything. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's a great network printer
    I am quite impressed with the MFC-8840DN.
    It's loaded with useful features, and they all work.
    The product is solidly designed, and there was obviously a lot of thought put into the mechanical design and control panel. The printed user manual is very good too.
    The multipurpose tray is quite handy for keeping a few mailing envelopes or CD labels ready for printing at a moment's notice.
    The duplexer has no problem doing two-sided printing, and there are options for straight through paper feeding and output.
    The document feeder works well, and the software also handles using the flatbed scanner conveniently.If you don't use the document feeder, it prompts you for each page to be scanned on the flatbed.

    I'm not using the fax at the moment, but that too has a multitude of useful features.If you do a lot of faxing, or have special fax applications this is worth looking at.You can do everything from fax relaying, broadcasting, and storing, to emailing faxes automatically to wherever you happen to be.

    The network and software setup is in a separate manual, and may be a little intimidating, but everything works as advertised once you get it set up.If you want to use the scan buttons on the control panel, you will need to open some ports in the Windows Firewall.You can only register one computer to use the control panel scan buttons.The PC software scanning does work from multiple computers.You can buy a license if you need to have multiple computers appear in the control panel's scan button menu.

    I ran into one annoying problem, but it isn't a big one.
    There's a web browser interface that you can use to change the configuration.It sometimes freezes, and at that point I had to power cycle it to be able to use the web browser to configure it again.I don't expect to be changing the configuration a lot, and the problem happens infrequently.

    This product supports an amazing number of network protocols, which makes it very useful for networks with a mixture of Apple, Windows, Unix, and other computers.About the only protocol it doesn't support is NETBIOS over IPX/SPX.That's a pretty unusual combination, but I did happen to be using it.I changed my configuration to NETBIOS over TCP/IP, and that is supported.NETWARE is supported with IPX/SPX protocol.

    You can connect this to a 15 amp circuit, but don't be surprised if it dims the lights when you turn the power on.It's probably better to connect this to a 20 amp or 30 amp circuit.I had to relocate the printer because it was causing my UPS to detect a line voltage drop.That's really a problem with the UPS being too sensitive, but it's something to keep in mind if you have everything connected to the same circuit.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant
    I would give this device 6 stars if I could!! The Brother 8840-DN scans documents to PDFs at a rate comparable to the much more expensive Xerox Documate at nearly half the price. Plus you get a lightning fast copying machine, a fast fax, a network printer and a flatbed scanner. What an amazing product!!! I did a good deal of research prior to purchasing this machine, and almost cancelled the order based on some last minute that I read. (Luckily I changed my mind.) PC world said it scanned documents rediculously slowly, taking 33 seconds toat 100 dpi. This turned out to be absolutely NOT true!!! I managed to get through a stack of fifty documents at 300dpi in less than 120 seconds, and that includes creating the pdfs. (I am running an AMD64 3000+ with 1 GB of ram). The print quality is about average for a laser printer- it is nothing compared to the ultra-crisp text of the Minolta Color laser Engine (I also own a Minolta Magicolor 2350EN Color laser) but for less than half the price, I have no complaints. The network connectability is an added bonus. I can scan and even fax from my computer (without printing a hardcopy first) -all remotely. If you purchase this item, make sure to upgrade to the max 160 Mb of RAM (128 Mb DIMM available from crucial for 50 bucks) as this speeds things up even more.

    I would recommend the Brother 8840DN to anyone looking for a well built and designed MFC device, and would take all the unjustified negative comments with a grain of salt.

    Enjoy --

    1-0 out of 5 stars Prints fine, but unable to clear jam
    Print quality and speed is great, doublesided and networking capabilities worked fine on Windows and Linux computers, however once this printer jammed (after 75 pages), it was impossible to clear. The little thumbwheel you are supposed to turn to roll the jam out is impossibly stiff and despite spinning it enough in both directions to raise a blister, did nothing to free the jam. The space between the rollers is inaccessible and without special knowledge of the printer, the rollers are impossible to separate in order to clear a jam.

    I returned the printer - even if a service desk had been able to clear it, I do not want to be able to print at the convenience of a service desk.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a great Laser MFP!
    My wife and I are both Realtors, working primarily from our home office.We already have a nice color laser printer (Konica Minolta 2300W) but needed something to replace our aged HP printer/fax.

    After a ton of research, I settled on the Brother MFC-8840DN. Connection to our home network was a snap. The scanner function works great, and I can send the scans directly from the unit to any of the computers on the network.Scan quality has been great, and the legal sized flatbed is a necessity when working with real estate documents.The printer has worked flawlessly, as has the fax (and tons of memory locations).

    The low price of consumables (a 6,700 page toner cartridge costs about 60 bucks) was another factor in buying.Beware though, the unit ships with a toner cartridge with far lower capacity.

    If you don't need color from your MFC, check this one out. We considered inkjet models, but the lower print quality and much higher ink costs made a b/w laser a better choice.This is a great printer, at an even better price!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Meets all my expectations (mostly)
    This printer (we got the DN model) does everything as advertised. The only thing I don't like about it is the scan and email function. The network settings lack SMTP authentication so I must send and receive the emails from the unit to a LAN pc using proxy software.

    Otherwise we're completely satisfied with the printer, software, etc. ... Read more

    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.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly easy to assemble
    I was a little apprehensive in buying this particular all-in-one, but I am so so glad I did.Working for a medical doctor, I've gone through 2 different all-in-ones including canon and hp and I couldn't figure out which brand or model would last.Luckily, I had no problem installing this model and I am so glad I trusted the positive reviews.Set-up for the fax and copy machine was a breeze and the printer and scanning software went without a hitch.All in all, it took me about half an hour to finish installation.

    As a last note, I do suggest using the fax cord included as I had problems trying to fax with my original phone cord.Also, the printer does not include a USB connection so make sure you already have one or buy one with this.Great purchase!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Finally -- an All-in-One that Delivers!
    After three months use, this all-in-one printer still satisfies.Fax -- perfect!Printing -- Gorgeous, and the duplex printing allows me to save on paper and space to store it.Copy -- Nice - maybe not the absolute best I've ever seen, but better than acceptable. Scanner -- scans are good when they work.Probably a software upgrade would be the answer, but I haven't seen one yet that solves my (sometimes) problem with a tempermental scanner.

    Overall, with the exception mentioned above, I'm a happy camper. I've reduced the number of machines in my office without a huge sacrifice in productivity.

    Four Stars!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Frustrating and Disppointing exp with this All-in-One!
    I was a huge fan of HP.I had a HP All-In-One from college and that lasted me 6 good years until it just went obsolete.However, this printer changed most of my HP perspectives on All-In-Ones.First, the print function is faulty.Whenever it tries to print Black and White on paper, there will be wide white stripes where there should have been text or graphic.Called HP for repair, spent 45 minutes of testing on the phone and they only replaced my cartridge.OK, white stripes problem improved but is still happening.

    Then, the fax function failed after 1 month of use.Everytime when the multiple-page fax is sent out from the feeder correctly, the fax result will always print out to say "Jammed".But NOT A SINGLE FAXED PAPER WAS JAMMED!!!And sometimes the fax goes out just right and the result message will say "Error", this is when the recipient doesn't receive the last 1 or 2 pages of the fax.

    Very disppointed HP comes out with a product as defective as this one.Hopefully your HP All-In-One experience is much better than this one!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wow.Overcome minor hurdles and totaly impressed.AMAZING!
    I bought this with major hesitation about some of the other reviews and am blown away with the function of this machine.

    After hooking up my desktop in half hour, I then went to install my laptop.It gave me an error message and required a call to India for tech support.After 2 hours, I couldn't be happier and HIGHLY recommend this machine.

    I can scan documents to either machine wirelessly, fax from either machine wirelessly and print from either machine.

    It doesn't get any better.

    Now, I am tossing my separate scanner, printer, wireless router and fax machine.

    AWESOME!Be patient and expect a couple of glitches but the results are 5 ******

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great printer, terrible software...
    First of all, it is a great printer. Color inkjet, duplex printing, duplex scanning, flatbed scanner, sheet fed scanner, built-in fax machine, it is a networked printer etc. Unfortunately, the software isn't great at all. Even after the major recent update it is still buggy. But I love the printer. It allows me to slide a 30-page dual-sided document in it, click "Scan", and it will do the duplex scan job, save it into a PDF document and will even do the character recognition for me! But let them fix the software!!! ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars terrible service
    My wife and I wasted hours and hours trying to get HP service. HP has outsourced customer service to several developing countries, and each time we called, the representatives were unable to locate the record of our previous call.We were told time and again that we would be contacted by a "case manager" but that never happened. After weeks of trying, it became obvious that we need to discard the product (still under warrantee) and buy a new (non-HP) product ourselves.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible software
    Installation is terrible with lots of bugs.Look at the HP site and you will see a long list of fixes.Your job is to try to figure out which one is the one that will work for you.When the other reviews mentioned "several hours" they were right.The best advice was from an Amazon review here.The reviewer correctly advised to uninstall Mcafee.That works.Nowhere on the HP site is that mentioned so you wade through the trial and errors trying to fix the installation.The product works but it is a real shame that HP never tested the installation and allow customers to go through this mess.The one star rating is for the software installation.You will see if you buy this.

    4-0 out of 5 stars High price but you get what you pay for
    I have had this piece for close to a month now and all is well. I have to say it was on the very high end of what I was willing to spend but the wireless feature and double sided printing were what made me part with the money.
    Setup was a breeze. Make sure you find all the hidden packing tape before trying to use as there are pieces you have to really look for. Installation was long only due to the size of the HP Imaging software. I was up and running in about 45 min. and ran into a update software problem as it would download the first update but then didn't recognize the printer and download anymore updates. I skated around this by hooking up the network cable and it then reconized it and downloaded the updates and then returned everything to the wireless configuration and no problems. Also loaded up the laptop with the program and no problems.
    I havn't used everyfunction yet but and impressed with the layout and ease of use both on the unit itself and the HP computer program. Printing is fast and neat and the fax works great. So far no problems to mention and with as smooth as things have been I'm not worried.
    I almost didn't buy this because of other poor reveiws of this item but instalation was a snap and was able to work around small problems even being a computer dummy. There are cheaper items out there so unless you will use everything on it I'd downsize but if this is what you need it's great.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent except 2 things.
    I love this printer, except for 2 things:

    1:The Margin issue addressed in another review but there is another problem that is extremely vexing if you use this as a Stand-alone copier:

    2: If you buy this for the 2-sided copy feature (copying a stack of 2-side documents automagically) you are in for a surprise.

    If you insert a stack of say... 10 documents, and copy them 1-sided, it works fine. It will copy the entire document and print to the minumum margins that the 7410 will do.

    BUT:if you have a stack of 2-sided documents and let the 7410 copy them as 2-sided documents you will find that the front of each now has been "cut off" at a margin of .625" at the top and bottom and the back of the document is cut off with a margin of .625" at the top.

    If you are copying a stack of Real Estate Contracts, you will now find that your copies don't have the Signatures at the bottom! They are cut off!
    And you cannot reduce the size when using 2-side copying to get around this.The only way to get around it is to treat them as single-sided documents, run them through, then put the printed copies back into the paper tray upside down and copy the other side.

    This is using the 7410 as a stand-alone device.I believe this is a problem with the firmware of the printer itself, as HP sent me a new one and it still had the same problem even after spending 2 hours on the phone with tech support.

    If you don't plan to use the 2-side copy function, then this will not be an issue for you and it should be a great printer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Really Great All In One - With Really Great Support
    12-Mar-2005 Update...
    Been using for a few weeks. Would I buy this again? in a heartbeat.Since last writing, I've installed the hp software on a 2nd networked (wired) computer. I made sure to uninstall McAfee and the hp software installed perfectly. Reinstalled McAfee and 2nd computer was up & running.

    My main use has been paper reduction; scanning existing documents to PDF format. It's very simple - really, load originals in Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and either initiate the scan from any computer on my network or from the 7410 front panel. From the front panel I can select the destination, if I care to.The hp software allows scanning to multiple formats (I use PDF) and allows selection of scanning double sided or single sided, color or B&W, etc, etc. Double-sided from the ADF flys & you can walk away or do something else on your computer. If you place an original on the flat glass, cropping (when desired) is simple & intuitive. Merging pages is simple & flexible. Paper passing through the ADF is smooth - hardly a jam, and when it did (a) I should have scanned the wrinkled original on the glass & (b) jams are easy to clear. If you too would like to cut back on saving paperwork, this All In One does a great job of converting your paper into electronic format.

    Copying and printing work great. Right now my focus is scanning, so after using more features, I'll attempt another update.
    ***********************
    1st writing:

    Had I written this the day I got this machine, I'd be writing a much different review. As other reviewers have mentioned, I too suffered from an incomplete software install on a wired Peer-To-Peer LAN (Home Office Network).I spent 4.5 hours (non-stop) on the phone Sunday afternoon, and the Level 1 Tech was VERY good. We got almost everything working.It was this tech who suggested he now turn me over to a level 2. Unfortunately, none available. He urged I call back around 8 PM, which I did - provide my case # and request an L2. I got another L1, and this fellow immediately knew the root problem - McAfee tools.You THINK you disable them (Start> Run> Services, then stop & disable, etc.) but they are not really turned off. I didn't have enough energy to do a McAfee uninstall, HP uninstall, HP reinstall, then McAffe reinstall. I did this Monday night, w/ a Level 2 HP tech from 7 to 10:30 PM.

    The problem IS McAfee Privacy Service - this prevents the final install from completing.Bottom line: 1) UNINSTALL, not disable, ALL McAFEE >>> BEFORE <<< putting the HP CD in your drive. Then and only then perform the HP install.

    Bcause of reiteritive install attempts, we had to perform much diagnostics, and repairs. It worked.

    I went from 100% negative to 100% positive. I have NEVER had this type support - HP took ownership of the problem and would not give up - they would not quit!

    OK, so how does this beast work? Unbelievably good.It is such a pleasure to have a duplex scanner and duplex printer, and one which can be controlled via the computer when you don't care to be at the machine's front panel.

    Having two trays is a luxury. The scanning goes pretty quick, as does the duplex printing. I own quite a variety of color inkjet HP 7960, Canon, Epson, etc.) & B&W laser (HP) printers, and have had a number of large (D and E-size) color pen plotters (HP).The quality of the All In One (AIO) is, at least to me and my needs, every bit as good as the HP 7960, if not better. And faster.

    I have NO complaints w/ quality as I do a side-by-side printing from HP 7960 and AIO 7410.

    I cannot comment on Wireless, as not having a need for it, I shut it off. I'm a wired network thoughout 4100 sq. feet and 5 computers which is the max. # HP recommends for either wired or wireless.

    This is my 1st review at Amazon, so if updates are allowed, I'll post back after I have adequate time to thoroughly investigate.

    For the moment, other than the software fiasco (McAfee's doing - NOT in my mind HP's fault), I am NOW pleased w/ my purchase.

    Expensive at $499? yes - but a heck of a lot less money than the Fujitsu $1300 duplex scanner I would have bought Sat AM if the store was open! Thank goodness thay were closed - saved me $800!!

    SO - IF YOUR PROBLEMS ARE SOFTWARE RELATED, get on the phone to HP Tech Support. They were fantastic.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well Worth The Money
    I purchased the MFC-8840D because my job requires me to print forms for customers then scan them back into the computer as PDF files for electronic submission.I also do a small amount of copying.The MFC-8840D seemed like a good solution.I've had good luck with Brother products in the past and their software has always been reliable and kept up to date.I saw a similar model from Brother at a local office and was very impressed.

    I had no trouble getting the unit up and running under Windows XP using the supplied setup instructions.I also had no problem getting printing and scanning running on Linux (Fedora Core 2) using the instructions from http://solutions.brother.com

    This unit is very easy to use.The front panel controls as well as the software are very straight forward.

    I was also able to share the printer portion of the MFC over my network without any problems.The N model or optional network adapter is not required for this.

    The bottom line, good quality, extremely easy to use and setup, works great, good software, Windows & Linux support.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Does What it Promises...and Very Well...recommended
    This the third Brother laser printer I've purchased in the past seven years. This machine was a logical first choice based on my good experience with this brand. I've had this one for about four months and have put it to heavy use. Simply put, this machine does exactly what it promises and without any glitch. I used it with both my Mac and Windows XP PC at home; the software integrates well. Four other positives are worth mentioning: (1) the toner refills are inexpensive ($60 for the 7,000 page version), (2) they can be reliably refilled once each with the toner refill kits off of ebay ($12-16 each; not a messy process), (3) mine's not as loud as another reviewer's unit seemed to be (or maybe I'm used to the level of noise from Brother printers;), (4) The duplexing works very reliably (not a single jam since I bought this unit). Highly recommended.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but some small issues
    Pros:For $450, getting a fax + copier + scanner + duplex laser printer is a pretty good deal. I considered buying higher quality printer, scanner and fax-modem components separately and then using my computer to integrate them, but there is something to be said for "press-a-button" copying and faxing that just works. I've found a lot of unexpected uses for the copy machine - no longer need to tote the whole textbook; just copy the chapter I plan to read, etc.The N-in-1 feature is useful - you can fit many textbook pages onto a single sheet.The printer is completely quiet when idle, though it takes a few minutes to fan down after printing something.

    Cons:My biggest requirement in a printer was built-in duplex (double-sided printing). I couldn't find another laser duplex multifunction device for under $1000. (For those deciding, if black & white text print quality matters to you, do NOT buy an ink jet - or at least do a careful side-by-side print comparison. Laser is much better.) Anyway, I was pretty mad to find out that this printer only supports printing at 600 DPI duplex. There was absolutely no mention of this in the specs. There is a noticeable quality difference between 600 and the HQ1200 mode. Lots of jaggies in 600 dpi - almost looks like my old deskjet, though slightly better. It's still suitable for documents you'll just read over once. The other con is that this printer is darned ugly. When photocopying a textbook it is almost impossible not to accidentally press at least 10 of the over 50 buttons littering the front panel.It would have been nice if the cover was removable - I have had trouble scanning some textbooks that really aren't that large.My experience with Brother customer service was pretty bad - I had to literally wait 45 minutes on hold to speak to someone about the duplex issue.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Slick Machine....
    After much research and some looking and testing, decided to go for this Brother machine based on reviews and my other good experiences with Brother equipment.Bought this at Costco for somewhere around $375.Set up was a breeze -- less than 30 minutes, and no problems with XP Pro.Networked it to my colleagues without problems.Works like a champ.Faxing is a breeze and sheet feeder is fast and well-designed.Copying is also slick.Printing has been fast with sharp text.Have not needed to scan anything yet.Toner save is a real plus for us b/c of the volume of faxes, copies, etc. that come through every day.Making command changes is a snap and pretty much intuitive.I thought the manual was very clearly written, and it's easy to find command changes you want.The size of the thing is a little intimidating -- I think it frightened away our other little inkjet, but I'm perfectly happy with it -- in fact, I think we got a steal on this thing.If you're looking for a sturdy, reliable, quick, 4-in-1 laser, take a look at this one.I think Brother has pretty much won me over -- I still have HP's, Epsons, and Canon printers around, but Brother is making some darn good quality stuff these days.I know there are a ton of 4-in-1 machines out there and prices are dropping quickly, but give this one a shot as you're looking around.I'm sure glad I got me a Brother.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Worthy of serious consideration!!
    65% of its use is as a copier, 20% as a printer and 15% as a fax machine. So far, it has perfomed as I expected. We have 3 Brother laserprinters in the office.Brother has always proven to be an excellent workhorse and this is no exception.Also, Brother provides great tech support for both Windows and Mac systems.I have no loyalty to Brother.But as long as their products have proven themselves, they stay near the top of my list.

    Software installed without any problems on both Windows XP Pro and OS X.Haven't used the scanning abilities and I doubt we will (so I can't comment on its capabilities).But as a copier, fax and printer, it has worked great. The ADF is a pleasure (no jams after 3,000+ copies) and the copier itself is fast. This copier DOES have a page counter, but it can't be reset.So if you have an unknown amount of papers to put in the ADF and need 20 sets, you can determine the amount of copies made.

    Toner life is an expected 6,700 pages and I suspect we'll get close to 6,300 before needing replacement (always seem to get 5% less then the expectd yield on text imaging). The unit did come with a smaller yielding toner cartridge (3,500 impressions), but we had the higher yielding in the office and used that first.

    If there is one thing I wasn't expecting is the noise it makes.Not that it is any louder then the Canon 780 in our other office. Having various Brother printers throughout the office, this unit is a bit louder then I expected.Also, it is built well, but not as solid as the Canon 780.But comparing the two is like comparing a Buick to a Cadillac.Both good and reliable cars, just one make is slightly better constructed then the other. All in all, this is a great unit and worthy of serious consideration. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Printer works great, but took work to get there
    I have had the printer for 5 months and frankly wonder how I lived without it.This is my first all-in-one, and I have never had the ability to frax, scan or copy before and I can't imagine going back to just a printer again.All of these functions work either as I expected or usually better than I expected.For instance, when scanning from the printer I can pick which PC it goes to, I do not have to be at the PC to control the scan.Fax works great with my answering machine.Chose copies in color or B&W.The display is simple to read and navigate.

    What I did not like was the software install.I configured the printer to connect directly to my network router.You cannot set a static IP, this may cause some incontinence for some, not a problem with my router though. I installed the software on both my desktop and my laptop.Everything seemed to work fine.The next day I went to work and my laptop worked very poorly.After doing some troubleshooting I found that one of the HP proces was looking for the network printer IP every minute or so, and would have to wait on a timeout.These delays made the laptop unusable.Finally uninstalled the HP software and everything worked fine again.

    I was able to get an update to the software that fixed this problem but it did not come with the initial update which I found strange..A USB install is probably fine, I am glad I did not have to go this route though.The install reminded me of installing Office, it is a lot of software.The software itself seems mediocre to me, certainly nothing I can live without except the OCR which is basically functional.I personally did not like software that tries to make albums of every scan/photo you put on the hard disk.The software is functional and works, but no WOW factor or feeling that you got something great.

    Overall though I got what I wanted and a bit more in the hardware, it even makes up for the software that came with it.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Nightmare!
    This product claims to be compatible with Windows 98.When I installed the software, my computer became totally messed up.I spent DAYS online and on the phone with their tech people and ended up getting nowhere.My computer kept locking up, I couldn't load any software for printers because the computer kept telling me the ports were no longer there, many of my programs would not even work and all my data was lost.I ended up having to get a whole new computer.Their tech support was useless and their corporate office told me basically "tough luck", and refused to do anything.Totally ruined my $1,400 computer!Don't buy this (or anything else from HP since they refuse to make good on damage their products cause).

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great features in a small package
    This is the first "All in One" I've purchased, and I'm very pleased so far.
    It was easy to set up, and I've had no software problems (Mac user).
    The strealined, compact overall size is a plus, copy speeds excellent, photo colors
    true and crisp (especially with proper photo paper).The flip-up read-out
    window is a nice and useful touch.Excellent overall for under $300.



    1-0 out of 5 stars HP, HOW ABOUT MAKING RELIABLE PRINTERS!
    Have owned the HP Photosmart 2610 for less than six months and have had nothing but problems.I agree with other reviewers that the software is a problem.Additionally, I get constant paper jams, even though I only use HP paper, and the printer does not print correctly, text is cut off or it just doesn't print.

    Tried calling Customer Support...good luck to anyone trying.First, you need to keep asking them to repeat things because they cannot even speak proper English.Second, HP does not offer any options to service the malfunctioning printer other than they'll send a replacement which is nothing more than an old printer which has been refurbished.Sure, just what I want to inherit more problems.Called the Executive Offices, did not solve my problem.Bottom line, HP does not care about the consumer, or the quality of products it is putting out on the market.And, standing behind their products...does not exist.A word of advice to anyone contemplating buying a printer, stay clear of HP.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Printer!!
    I don't know what problems people have been having with the software, but I have to say this is an amazing printer for the home or office.I would recommend this printer to anyone who wants an all in one that can perform like an office grade printer/copier.I have had NO issues with the software instillation and the printer works beautifully; nothing has crashed either.The software works with this printer and the other HP photo printer I have and there are NO conflicts.I would suggest you try it out for yourselves.Personally, I am glad I bought it; perhaps you will be too. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars High quality and stellar performance.
    First, let me say, this machine is more than I needed. I do mostly copy work but it's difficult to find a plain old copier anymore. The 8440 makes beautiful copies, although not in color, but I knew that when I bought it. Although I don't use it, the FAX function on this machine appears to be very comprehensive and can do just about anything when it comes to sending and receiving faxes. After installing the machine and its software, AOL changed my dial-up connection from my computer modem to the 8440 FAX machine. But I changed it back and have had no more problems. There has been some question about its scanning quality, so I scanned a couple documents and they would certainly have met my needs, but I didn't scan any photos. As a laser printer, its text and graphics output are excellent.

    It has a 50 sheet Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) which can be used for faxes or document copying. The scanning glass can also be used for document copying. It has a 250 sheet paper feeder and a single sheet paper feeder. Both can handle all sizes of paper and envelopes. A second 250 sheet paper feeder is available as an option.

    There are an endless number of menus that can be programmed, so you will need to spend some time with the owner's manual which is very thorough and easy to follow.

    If you don't need color printing, color copying or duplex printing this is a great machine. I would highly recommend it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Machine for a Mac Home Office
    This is a fast, high quality, printer, scanner, fax, copier.This machine supports my Mac well, handles heavy workloads, plays well with various software, etc.I added a second paper tray ($200) so that I could print on copy paper or bond without messing with the trays, maxed out the RAM ($40) to speed things up and improve the multiple copies function of the copier, and selected "Print as Image" in the advanced printing options, which finesses Acrobat issues.This is the peripheral for you (although you'll still want an inkjet printer to print photos).The printer seems slightly slower in Word than the HL-1470M printer it replaced, which is pretty fast.It prints Acrobat documents very fast with the added RAM.The manual printer feeder handles envelopes, thick paper, whatever.The copier is very fast and tends to correct exposure problems on its own.The scanner is very fast.The fax machine works very well.The feeder for the copier, scanner and fax works well.At a street price of less than $400, this is an outstanding value!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good one!
    I bought the printer from Amazon. So far, so good! Had some problem printing PDF's. The print out was smudged. Setting the option "Print as image" to true(in advanced options) solved the problem.

    Print outs even with Toner Save mode ON are great. Scanning documents using Document feeder is very convinient and easy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Regarding intial toner life.
    1. Phenomenal value for the money. Bought mine for $375 at efax.com. However, Costco is currently selling for $359 with an Instant $20 rebate and $40 Brother Mail In rebate.

    2. I called Brother... apparently "shipped" or out-of-the-box toner is a "sample" catridge. Good for 20% of full-toner catridge, which equals ~20%.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Buena maquina con algunos problemas
    Nosotros estabamos buscando una máquina multifuncional para atender aproximadamente 8 usuarios, y esta unidad nos pareció aceptable. Una vez la tuvimos con nosotros encontramos que:
    1.- Es sumamente compleja de instalar en redes donde el sistema operativo no es uno solo. Es decir en nuestra pequeña empresa tenemos win Xp y win 98. Fue muy trabajoso el lograr ponerla en punto. Ademas las instrucciones y soporte escrito o en CD son muy pobres.
    2.- Tiene un problema serio de JAM PAPER, al punto que hemos tenido que habilitar la salida directa trasera para evitar problemas constantemente.

    5-0 out of 5 stars No sweat
    First of all, I thoroughly read all of the reviews of this product (and other related HP printers) before I went ahead and purchased it.I was skeptical to say the least, especially after all the software nightmare stories, but this printer has all the functions I need so I went ahead and bought it.

    My main computer is a Mac, running Tiger, and setup was a breeze.Because of all the horror stories I literally went word by word, step by step for the setup, and maybe that's why setup was so easy.The software installed within minutes (like, under five) and I was up and running all-told within about 1/2 hour.My computer was not able to find the proper drivers to add the printer, but I read a post on Mac support about resetting the printer settings in the print utility, and restarting...and then the computer found the drivers immediately (so it was a Tiger issue, not printer).

    I have not set up my Windows system yet, but I will post again when I have.I have to say though, after re-reading some of these posts I think many people had issues because they didn't read the directions.Someone even complained that they had to "figure out" that network settings need to be manually configured before connecting the printer to the computer...um, it says that in the setup directions.

    My one disappointment was calling tech support when my system could not find the drivers.I was disconnected 3 times in a row while on hold, and it was only when I was mistakenly put through to Windows support that I was told that Mac support is closed on the weekends.So basically, instead of saying that in the "automated" directory, they kept putting me through to a dead-end (closed) department which kept dropping my call.Poor.

    Overall though, so far, so good.Print quality is excellent, and fast.The fax and copy work great...have not tried scan yet, and will report back on Windows connectivity.Should be interesting hehe.

    2-0 out of 5 stars hardware is good. software sucks! support sucks!
    After hours of going in loop with the software installer, my wife spent hours on the phone with Indian tech support that is smart enough to repeat the manual that we already read, hmm.

    As it turns out I figured out that you have to manually configure the network settings on the printer correctly before installing the software (no thanks to the HP technical support, man have they ever used their own software???)

    But wait there was more fun, the HP installation software could not find one it's files (hpmom.hlp) so you have to find it manually on the CD for the installer.Well, you get to choose one because there are more than one for different languages and boy the directory names like ENU, ESM, FR really help you oh.Oh did I mention that I picked ESM as English the first time, ooops!ESM means Spanish in HP's world, so I got the wrong language installed; no problem I thought, I'll just uninstall and install the right language. Hmm, uninstall does not uninstall everything, so after quite a few more hours I found I needed to remove things from the registry.Oh did I mention all of the useless time I spend with tech support trying to fix this?Oh btw, if all goes well the software takes about 30 to 1 hour to install!Lovely, I can install all of MS Office in less time.Are there any real software engineers working at HP or 1000 monkeys typing away to create their software?My suggestion, buy a Canon or Epson.That is what I pay in the future.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Im new at this but it works great
    Does take a few hours to read and set up. But it does exactly what it supposed to.

    But then how can you go wrong with a HP printer. Also dont forget to align the cartridges as per manuel.I didnt and pictures were off until i did.

    PS I called customer service on something and they got on the phone and fixed the issue better than DELL.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good wireless network printer.
    This printer replaced my Canon Mp730 printer to be used as a wireless network printer for our 3 laptops.Network setup was easy and works great in this area; however, I felt as I took a downgrade from my previous printer.Software is bloated and causes all type of problems, even with all three being HP laptops, tech support is not much of help and no auto document feeder for fax or scanning.Regular text print quality is great, and photo quality is great as long as you don't use the HP papers, Canon or Epson papers highly recommended.Overall, I'm happy with using it as a network printer and have learned to live with other shortcomings.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Hours of My Life Lost
    I am a software professional, and if I wrote software like this I'd be standing out on the corner with one of those "Will Work for Food" signs.I'd have scraggly whiskers and a cigarette hanging from the corner of my mouth, and even if you wanted to help me, you'd basically know I was no good.

    Urghhhhhh! What a crappy piece of software!It is HUGE, takes over your system, disables non-device related software components, and then HP refuses to support you with an intelligile person or at all.Shame, shame on HP.Not great thoughts about offshore support countries, either.

    I spent 3 hours trying to get my "wireless" 2710 to connect and could never get past the WEP key.I gave up and plugged an Ethernet cable into it.Then I spent another hour installing the software on a single PC (it's HUGE).Then I printed a sample page.Then I scanned a document.Cool, other than having a wired wireless all-in-one, everything was working.

    What happened next was like gangrene.Suddenly, every time I restarted my PC, I got a warning that my Windows Firewall was off.I'd check it and it was on.Then, periodically, I'd get error dialogs from anywhere with a svchost.exe exception with pretty hex code.Then I couldn't print at all, or scan, or anything.Then it took 3 minutes and 45 seconds just to open a browser.Then my Adobe Photoshop software wouldn't work.Then it took over 6 minutes to start my high end PC each time.

    Luckily the Add/Remove Programs option still worked, so I uninstalled the 3 HP programs listed.Now everything is back to normal, except HP has about $400 of my hard earned cash, and I can't make any more because now I can't print a stinkin' invoice.Ironic.

    I should have read the reviews first.Gotta admit I screwed up there.If you're reading this and it's not too late then Run, Forest, Run!Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what offshore English-as-a-fourth-language 3 dollar an hour support representative you're gonna get.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Defective Out of the Box
    Obviously a lot of people love this printer when it works, but there appear to be significant quality issues at Brother.

    I decided to take a chance and order one, but am now sorry I did.I followed the instructions for setup and during the ink cartridge initialization the printer stopped working and gave me an error message, stating that it could not complete initialization.After following the troubleshooting instructions in both the manual and online multiple times, nothing solved the problem.(Scarily, the primary explanation in the troubleshooting manual for this error message is simply that "there is a mechanical malfunction" with the machine.)This one's going back and I don't think I'll take my chances with Brother again.

    Thank goodness Amazon makes returning defective product so easy.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Brother Customer Service Horrible!!!
    Unit displayed error messages after installing the ink cartridges. Called tech support in case I was doing something wrong. They confirmed unit was defective and offered to ship another one immediately and I could Fedex back the defective unit. It all sounded so easy and it was, however the unit I was shipped, appeared to be refurbished...it came in a plain cardboard box totally unlike a new one and there were no advertising stickers on the unit like a new one has. So did I pay full retail price for a refurbished unit? The second unit did work but after trying the scanner I was not impressed with the quality. I thought, "I need to get a unit with a better scanner". BIG PROBLEM!!!! BIG PROBLEM!!!!BIG PROBLEM!!! Retailer says, "They will not take back an item without the original packaging!!! I contacted Brother and explained my situation. I told them them this item is less than a week old but the retailer will not return it because Brother sent me what looks like a refurbished unit in a plain cardboard box. I told Brother that I would like to get another one of THEIR units which has a better scanner which is the same price. They said they won't do it!!! They only swap defective models for the same model number! Now think...Do you really want to purchase a product from a company like this? I'm going to take a hammer to this unit. Rest assured I will not buy another Brother product. They cost me $140.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buyer beware at all and every time. Do you want to be stuck with an item you don't want?

    1-0 out of 5 stars Dead out of box.
    Received a machine dead out of box. Twenty minute hold for customer service. Had I bought it anywhere but Amazon Brother would replace a "new" machine, never used with a refurb!!!!!!!
    So, sounds like a good mahine but you'd be crazy to buy something like this anyplace but Amazon.I will return it to Amazon and get a NEW machine.Better luck next time!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Value

    One of the best products for the money I have ever come across.

    If you need a multifunction machine with network capability, this is it. Set-up was simple and problem free. Print quality is excellent. Scanning looks good and is easy to use. I have not used the Fax yet. I highly recommend the mfc-420cn. Buy it.

    3-0 out of 5 stars be careful if just using as a fax/copier
    I have owned this for 4 months and have been pleased thus far, until today. I only use it as a fax and copier. I have a seperate printer at my office so it is not even hoked up to my computer. Today I received the warning that my color cartridges are out of ink, so it totally shuts down. I cannot even send a fax. The problem is that I have never used color. I always copy in black and white, same with the fax. Apparently it cleans itself periodically like a cat and that uses a small amount of ink. It is rated for 400 pages of color, so 100 pages of ink a month just for cleaning seems excessive to me. It is frustrating to spend c.$40 for color even though I never plan on using it. Perhaps those were the sample cartridges that came with it and they did not have the same capacity as standard ones. Other than that, as a fax machine and flatbed copier, it works great. Good value and small size. ... Read more

    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

    4-0 out of 5 stars Had a difficult time making the scanner work.
    I previously owned a couple of HP electronic products and I was satisfied with their performance. I wanted a multi-function printer so I bought the Laserjet 3015.

    The first time I installed the software, I had no problem with the printer, copier and fax functions.But I could not get the HP Toolbox to load and the scanner would not work. For three mornings, I was on the phone with HP support, trying to figure out how to solve the problem. I downloaded exe files from HP's website and installed them as instructed but that did not help.It was only after the third try and working with a third support rep that I was finally able to make it work.

    My only wish is that I bought a system with a flatbed scanner but for the price, I can live with what I have.It's now working fine with me and I am happy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Can FAX from Software?
    This is to answer previous post/question by Edward Johnsen, if HP-3015 can FAX directly from computer software.
    I am also in research for a "all-in-one" reasonable price solution, and the HP-3015 seems to "fit-the-bill". I wrote to HP support regarding this inquiry and I got a satisfying response as the following:

    Based on the information you supplied in your e-mail, you are asking about faxing software for your HP LaserJet 3015.

    Yes, the printer has Send Fax software which enables you to fax from the desktop.The document at the link below provides an overview of the options available for this product:

    http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00064389

    In summary, the answer is YES.

    4-0 out of 5 stars More of a question than review....
    ....this unit looks really good based on my preliminary research. What it doesn't make clear is whether or not it permits desktop faxing, i.e. using a program on my PC, which is of course connected to this fax device via USB, to fax directly from an application, such as MS word.
    Any thoughts out there?

    1-0 out of 5 stars goes through toner like there's no tomorrow
    we use this copier in a dental office 3 days a week and with normal usage it goes through $132 cartridges of toner in about 45 days-even when it is on it's "toner saver" setting. that's a lot of toner and money.spend a little more on your copier, because what little you save at first, you end up spending over and over and over again every 45 days.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful piece of equipment!
    I teach English in a small school and was often frustrated by turn-around time to get copies.Often a class would need clarification, which could be easily obtained by throwing an overhead up on the screen or discussing some extra review sheets.I am able to run overhead sheets easily through this copier, make a fast copy of a note home to a parent, or use it for a variety of jobs.Yes, the cost came out of my pocket, and yes, it is worth every penny. My copier is one year old, and I am purchasing my third toner cartridge.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Solid Performance
    I've had this copier for nine months now (a previous Canon copier had given us ten years of good service) and am thoroughly pleased with it. It has no warm-up time at all, the paper tray is ample and you can use a side slot to get a quick copy on a different coloror type of paper if you want. It's quick, makes multiple copies, you can increase/decrease the image size, and it has very intuitive controls. Fairly quiet and fast as well. Quite a good buy, really.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A good little copier
    We use this in a fairly busy one physician doctors office and we have found it to be dependable. It's fairly quiet, and gives us good quality copies.
    What more can you ask. Another good thing about this one is, there a good quality generic toner cartridges available on the web. That really is a plus when your doing a lot of copies per month, like we are.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I would buy something else
    My office recently purchased this copy machine.After 2 months of use the paper started to jam every other copy.When I called for service I got a HUGE run around and finally took it back to the store where it was purchased.They helped me figure out the problem and showed me how to "fix" it.It is a very temporary solution and I have to "fix" it every 3rd time I use the copier.For the money I spent, I would buy something else! ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Still better off with separate units, but a nice toy
    The Canon MF8170c is the very first AIO (All-In-One) fax-scan-copy-printer to feature color laser printing at its pricepoint and without the 500 lb bulk of a standalone copier/printer.While you can probably both save money and increase quality and speed with separate units doing the same task, after buying my first AIO HP OfficeJet G85 several years ago I was hooked and promised myself never to go back to the copy-by-scan-and-print method.The color print speed, noise, and lack of certain features are worth knocking a star off, but if you can afford it and don't need certain higher-end features its well worth it for home office use.

    The MF8170c is a heavy (ships at 106 lbs - 2-day shipping on this would pay for an Amazon Prime membership!), big (25" x 20" x 20"), relatively complicated looking unit but is a relative pussycat to get going by USB - just install drivers from the CD.Ethernet connections weren't as easy; it and my Netgear WGR614 router didn't like each other at first, but once I figured the problem was the printer didn't have an IP address, the installation software let me solve that problem and I was off and running.

    B&W print quality is in general quite crisp, color print quality very good and both well above that of the HP 4650n I used at my prior job.This is not a photo printer, however; I found using both copy and glossy paper my G85 substantially outperformed it even when the MF8170c was set in photo mode.Fax and copy functionality and quality were ok, although it feels like my old G85 had more features.Where this lacks is in scanning.Scan quality is actually pretty good, but you can't scan through the network and have to have a USB connection (and drivers).Annoying.

    Where I knock a star off (and would probably knock a second off if it weren't a unique item) is three fold.First, no power switch means even in energy saver mode this has fans going; it's not hugely loud (compared to my late lamented airplane-engine-sounding 15-year-old Epson ActionLaser II) but it's annoying and takes forever to turn off and warm up.Second, for a 2005 printer color prints like its 2000 at a rated 4 ppm after a 1 minute warmup.This isn't surprising given Canon quietly skimped on RAM.The printer has only a measly 24MB, a fact convieniently omitted from the available technical specifications and one I only found out about by looking around on the web browser based internal monitor.Finally, I really don't like the fact that I can't buy a duplex (dual-sided) printing collator, although the design makes me hope there should be some accessories coming out shortly.

    If you have more than 2-3 people who need to do routine color printing or scanning this isn't your machine.I'd pick up one of the networked color laser Lexmarks and a good monochrome AIO unit instead.However, for home office use this is state of the art.I like its large bulk in the corner of my home office even with its limitations.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Review of Canon's New MF8170c All in One Copier
    This unit is so new, it is hard to find in any stores, much less set up as a demo. I bought sight unseen based on features and Canon's good name. I was not disappointed.

    Assembly took about one hour, including installing 5 toner cartridges (1 large black and 4 color toners). Software set up went perfectly. The manual and instruction cards were very well written.

    The first color copy on plain paper looked really good. Better than what my Epson 2200 color inkjet would produce. I had some old glossy laser paper and then printed on that. Not a big improvement over plain. Images are a bit grainy and some banding in large color areas. I then printed a digital photo off my computer. Not a vast improvement over the copy function image. Same results where plain paper looks great (for a plain paper copy) and the glossy image was not near as good as decent inkjet can produce. I have not scanned or faxed, yet with this machine.

    Final thoughts: the unit takes a long time to make the first color copy, probably a full 60 seconds. The unit has NO OFF switch, just an energy saver button. Hence, the unit is always on. The unit will sit for hours after copying making fan noises. Don't sleep in the same room as this unit. Much later, it goes into true sleep mode and stays quiet. Even making black and white copies takes a considerable amount of time for the first copy. Images in B&W rival those of my HP Laserjet 4000--a machine with reportedly better resolution. Don't expect photo quality from this laser copier. You will need a good inkjet for that. But for business or home letters with small graphics or small photos in a newsletter, this unit does an amazing job. I will sell my HP 4000 but keep my Epson ink jet. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars good copy machine, bad photo printer
    The good:
    - small footprint (and even smaller if the front is closed, I always keep additional paper in the scanner bed accessible and are very happy to have a clean box)
    - does it all, card reading, scanning, printing, copying (you will love to have a copy machine at home, you don't need to turn the computer on)
    - printing on regular paper is fine
    The bad:
    - low-price-printer-high-price-ink-policy all the printer companies have, reason enough to buy third party ink
    - makes loud scary noises, which sound very "low quality"
    - wants you to align cartridges every time you change the ink cartridge (from photo printing cartridge to "normal" cartridge), this is maybe necessary, but a pain
    - hard to check if cartridges are clean, the test page shows a image of a butterfly, which is really not appropriate; in order to check if something is wrong, you would need fine lines, not big fields of the same color (which are always even on regular paper, because the ink will sink into the regular paper)
    - it's not possible to print a page longer than 11 inches, technically, it should be possible (my Epson used to do it), but the driver does not allow it
    The ugly:
    - photo printing (on 4 x 6) is a pain:
    - it does not always take in the paper properly, so the print is often cropped
    - it's hard to find and remember the correct print setting, where your print actually sits on your paper and not next to it
    - if you print with the wrong setting, or the paper is not taken in proberly, it still prints, but next to the paper, which makes a mess inside the printer and smears ink on the following pages
    - printing on photo paper often shows stripes, regardless of cleaning and aligning, it's hard to get rid of the stripes, as mentioned, it's hard to check on a test page
    - for printing 8 prints on photo paper, I just wasted 23 additional pages of striped, dirty with ink, or cropped prints, yes I am an experienced computer user, it's not the first time I print out photos on this printer, it's always a pain

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good printer/scanner combination
    This printer/scanner was a birthday present several months ago and I've been very pleased with it.I was frankly amazed at the quality of A4 prints it produces especially when you use photo quality paper.The cartridges last well and in fact when the box pops up saying you need to insert a new cartridge you usually have some time to go before you need to get the new one out.For general purpose printing off web pages and general documents, quality is fine for some time after it starts to think the cartridge is empty.

    The scanner is quite good though I always have to do some cleaning up in Paint Shop Pro afterwards.I use my scanner for making lace patterns and find the black background I use always has some spots on it.However this is easy enough to fix and most people would be more than happy with the quality of the scans.

    The scanning software is quite slow to launch once a scan has been made and you can expect to wait a couple of minutes until it has finished preparing the image.HP provide a good range of tools with which to edit your images and most people would find the included tools more than adequate.

    I am very happy with this equipment and expect to continue using it for quite some time.The HP laserjet printer I use at work is at least five years old and is still going strong!I'm giving it four stars only because I feel the quality of the scans is not quite as good as the quality of the prints and they really should be equal to do the printer justice.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Laborious software, grainy scans.
    I'm using Mac OS X and find this printer's software anything but user friendly, especially compared to my older, cheaper Lexmark, which also scanned better.This unit's scans are okay for text, but I can't use them for photos that I want to show people.The print quality is outstanding with the purchase of the uber-expensive photo cartridge, but you're better off buying an HP printer and a separate scanner, because this one is a pain.The card reader is brilliant however, with seamless integration into the OS.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Mostly great printer - unable to use labels or network
    I bought this printer for our home, and we really enjoy it. It scans well, prints well, and copies well.The one thing it won't do, is properly align labels.It appears the thickness of the paper causes the unit to fail to feed a couple of lines of the page.I thought it was just our printer, but I had bought another printer for work, and it too has the same feed problem.

    Another point I would like to raise, is you can not network this printer with other PCs in your home.You must connect the USB cable directly to the computer you want to use it with.I have three computers at home, and I find this very annoying.

    I regret not saving my pennies and buying a more robust printer.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not for Mac users at least
    I got this printer several months ago and have had nothing but problems with it. It won't turn off, my computer (Macintosh iBook) doesn't recognize it and when it was working it was slow, loud and the print quality was terrible (despite going through the calibration protocol several times). I thought it might still be of use as I could still make copies by hitting the "copy" button on the printer itself.No such luck, pressing "copy" illicits no response from the thing. I'd avoid this one - it's going to take up a lot of space in the trash can, too! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Photos? Gimme a break
    Complaining that a device like this doesn't scan as well as your old single-function scanner is a little like complaining how a Lexus RX330 SUV doesn't corner as well as your '92 sports car. The LJ 3030 is designed to do many things pretty well as opposed to one thing very well.

    If that is what you are looking for, I think it does a pretty good job. I use it for school and work two make presentations, scan documents, write papers, FAX statements, etc. In that respect, I think it does the job very well especially given its price. The print quality is quite good and compared to my old LJ 3150 it prints quite fast at 15-20ppm. The scanner is not top quality, but it is not bad and is good enough for what I need it for. Honestly, if you want professional quality color scanning for photos, you shouldn't be looking at an all-in-one in the first place. Printing photos on a B/W laser printer seems pointless to me. I've printed Powerpoint slides with graphics on them and they look quite reasonable.

    I got printer setup to be shared on my home network pretty quickly and the Java-based configuration software is pretty easy to use.

    The USB connection is nice and I have it running through the hub in my monitor instead of having to run it all the way back to my PC.

    The print recognition software which converts scanned documents to editable MS Word files works pretty well for typed docs, but obviously not well for handwritten ones.

    Overall, I am quite happy with it although I wish the extra USB 2.0 cable which is not included wasn't so expensive.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Major disappoitment
    How come no one has reviewed this printer so far ? Mmm.
    In any case, the HP LaserJet 3030 All-in-One turned out to be a disappoitment. I hope I will be able to return it, it's been 31 days.

    Faxing I did not have the time to try.

    Scanning is very slow, even at 200 dpi. There is dithering at 300 dpi and up, when looking at pictures at their actual size, which is abnormal when scanning high quality photos. Listen, it's just abnormal that an old cheapo scanner of mine, bought 9 years ago for 100 $CA, performs 50 times better than this one.

    It is also abnormal that the printer should perform the way it does with graphics (forget photos!). There is dithering which I did not get with my OLD HP printer. So if you are printing even a little graphic here and there, trust me : it will get on your nerves to see that dithering. MAJOR posterization when printing photos. Again, my old 1100 LaserJet printer performed a lot better in printing photos, and graphics. What's up with that.
