By Method2Madness VINE VOICE on August 20, 2009
First, let me preface by saying that I am not "tied" to any particular brand or model. I've had, and/or still have: Epsons, Canons, HPs and Lexmarks (I tend to shy away from Lexmarks low end units, but the higher end units work fine) and they ALL have their good apples and their bad apples. I, for the life of me, simply cannot label this as a bad apple. And believe me, after reading all the negative reviews, I tried! It works without flaw on Vista 32 bit, Vista 64 bit and Windows 7 64 bit RC1(Using the Vista 64 bit drivers). Both via USB and via WiFI with an old Linksys WRT54GL.


I work out of my SUV and needed a small printer/copier to use while I was on the road. This so happened to be on sale a few weeks ago and was the cheapest AIO, with the exception of the Lexmark which I was not willing to purchase, so I bought it. I got it home, preformed the normal new printer setup ritual, contemplated some sort of ceremonial dance due to all the negative reviews, and dug in.

---FIRST RULE OF THUMB WHEN INSTALLING ANY NEW HARDWARE: Create a restore point! If anything goes haywire, you can just "roll back" to this restore point.

---SECOND RULE OF THUMB: Do NOT use the drivers provided in the box. Ever... Instead download the drivers and/or firmware/system updates and/or patches from HP.

---AND THE FINAL RULE OF THUMB: Unless you love bloatware(God knows, HP wants you to...), find the most BASIC and SMALLEST driver set available that still allows full feature operation. When I searched (What a novel idea, right?), there were two "junior sized" drivers for this particular unit and both gave summaries as to what they do.

First of all, I must make clear I'm using this printer with computers running Ubuntu Linux, using version 2.8.10 of the HPLIP driver software (the first version to support it). I have no comments on the Windows or Mac software that comes with the printer, as I don't use it.

I set the printer up with the control panel it has, it found my home network (802.11g, WPA2 encryption) immediately and I entered the network password and it connected first time. (after a power cut later, it reconnected itself fine).

The printer setup on my Linux computer automatically found the printer (wirelessly) without any problem and configured it in under a minute. Printed test page fine.

I've since printed other documents, done a 400MB full-page 1200dpi scan, sheet fed photocopies, enlarged photocopies etc all without any problem. All wireless (where applicable), haven't needed to plug the USB cable in. It just works. I haven't had any reason to test the fax features (don't have a landline phone).

Quality-wise, color images are not quite as good as my older (wired) HP C3180 printer, but still quite acceptable. For printing and (especially) scanning the J4680 is fairly slow, for home use that doesn't really matter.

I've even set up my Nokia E51 phone to print wirelessly to this printer, again a matter of entering the configuration details on the phone and it just worked.

I've deducted one star for the lack of a backlight on the screen, it's really hard to read in anything other than perfect light. Other than that, I'm struggling to find anything to complain about. I'll update this review when I do find something!

the product is very satisfactory.the price is good considering the features.the small dimensions of the product is suitable for a small home office. the wireless feature is very useful for homes which makes use of portable devices such as laptops. the paper feeder sometimes jams. the automatic feeder for the scanner needs improvement.

I am extremely disappointed with this printer. My main motivation for purchasing it was the wireless capability, but I have been unable to get the wireless function to work. When I print the settings page, it indicates that all is correct, yet I simply cannot get it to work wirelessly. I tried to connect the printer both to my home network and using an adhoc peer to peer connection and neither would work. very frustrating! the software installation is extremely buggy and took several tries to install the printer even using a USB connection. I am really good with computers but this product has completely baffled me...HP customer service via email is a joke. About 6 techs sent me the same link to the same solution, and when I responded to their questions, they sent me the same info again...totally useless.

UPDATE TO THIS REVIEW: months later, i upgraded my wireless router from a wireless b to a wireless g and wouldn't you know--the printer works fine now. it would have been helpful to have this in the printer documentation or TOLD TO ME BY HP WHEN I CONTACTED THEM REPEATEDLY, that you must be running a wireless g network for this device to work. i also recommend not using the software disc that comes with the product, but rather downloading the latest from the HP website & doing a custom install so that your computer does not have HP Customer Participation and all those other useless programs that are impossible to uninstall.
