More about this printer I like

The previous machine we had was an HP Photosmart - it needed a huge bloatware program to run on the network that you could only install with a suite of crap programs.  And then it would periodically corrupt or disappear.  In addition, the fax part of it could not send over an IP Phone line, only over a regular POTS line, making it useless.

Our previous scanner was some bizarre obsolete model that wasn't even intended for the US market - it scanned in A3 size.  The only way to make it work was to use its own scanner software to make a TIF and then import it to Photoshop, really clunky.

Now we can scan in 11x17" by remote control, if not for the fact someone has to physically position the  paper on the glass.

We can print full color in 11x17", which we have never had before.  In fact we never had a decent color printer before, even regular size.

The fax machine works over an IP phone line just fine!  I printed a multi page fax from a computer located in a different room and without going anywhere near the printer it woke up, sent the fax and went back into power save mode.

Finally bought something I am actually happy with.
