Spent a few days trying to pick the best all-in-one printer within a reasonable budget. Overlooked this model at first, but compared to all the other printers within the same class I realized this is the most pleasant to look at. All the negative reviews here put me off as well but all the printers seem to have their fair share of negative reviews. After actually using it I don't know where all the negativity is coming from.
Watched a few review videos on YouTube before purchasing. Some reviewers said that the build quality left much to be desired but I honestly didn't have a problem with it. The front panel stays closed perfectly and isn't hard at all to open. No part of the printer made me feel that it would break under proper handling.
The setup I'd say did take awhile to finish, but I didn't find it hard at all. Installed the app on my phone, created an account, connected to the printer via the app, then connected the printer to the wifi by using my phone. Took a few minutes but not difficult.
The packaging was done well. The printer was wrapped properly in a plastic bag with handles making it very easy to pull out from the box. The Amazon box is a bit bigger than the hp box so don't get overwhelmed when you see a huge box delivered to your house lol.
I love the print quality. Set the settings to best quality and bought the whitest hp paper I could find at Staples. Great combination for the eyes. The printing speed doesn't make you wish it would print any faster. It's not as instantaneous as laser printers but I never found myself counting the few seconds it would take to print. The document feeder is such a pleasant feature to have as well. Makes scanning documents so much easier.
I would love to get this as a gift for all my friends if I could!
