This little marvel is a great all-in-one, intended for home use or light office work. I particularly like the automatic 2-sided printing, a feature I never had before. The user friendly touchscreen is an excellent size while the pull out paper tray provides ease of loading.

The 6510 has a 12" x 17" footprint although the loading tray, closed, protrudes another 2.5" in the front. The printed page returns to you also in the front. This frees up the rear enabling use of the machine with its back against a wall, a necessary space saver in my situation: My unit is perched on a 12" x 24" wall shelf, out of the way, wireless and ready to run.

The 6510 has no automatic feeder. I mention this mainly to lighten my load, for surely I find it a much simpler task enumerating what it DOESN'T have rather than what it DOES have. HP has other models that do have automatic feeders. Besides an automatic feeder there is nothing lacking here.

The 6510 produces exquisite, professional, lab quality photos. I, personally, do not print that many photos, but whenever I do I do like what I see.

When it comes to printers I'm a fan of HP. Nevertheless, I researched other brands. Ultimately, I did not find reason to switch. The fact that the 6510 uses four (4) ink cartridges (black, cyan, magenta and yellow) rather than the standard two (2)--which I'm used to--was not a favorable idea to me at first, but I succumbed to the concept and am glad that I did. Those trifling doubts, confused concerns--all categorically unwarranted.

I did have a problem at the outset, however. I wasn't able to scan a document containing multiple pages. Each page was transferred to my computer as a separate document.

Printers come and printers go ... we are a disposable society--true. The price is right for this printer and I encourage anyone who has something older to step it up a notch with all the bells and whistles newer printers--like this All-In-One; print, scan, and copy--have to offer. I looked at Epson, an excellent workhorse and I have one that prints CD's; at Canon which looks nifty but didn't have the envelope printing capability, and ultimately went again with HP. This one uses fewer ink cartridges even for slick multicolored photographs on glossy paper. HP has dropped the Photo-black on this model. The nifty touchscreen is shaped like an iPhone, which I find curious and even has a slide show on how to do setup and load the paper tray which (HOORAY!) slides out for easier loading. The only difference I encountered was in initiating a scan ... toss the old HP Scan Pro and click directly on the new HP Scan 3 from your desktop or laptop. It brings up a more user-friendly window to work your scan with. Also; I've used heavier paper (28# for laser print) for more durable copies when I need a color photo and don't want to waste a glossy page. The documentation says it will take cover stock as well. If that's so, then this one is a peach!

Was actually looking at the HP Envy line of HP printers but saw this model for half the money and as many features and gave it a shot.

I am an Apple user at home. I make my money fixing Windows machines. ;-)

The printer works great. I unpacked this printer and set it up completely from the touch screen panel. I never even opened the driver cd or hooked a USB cable to it. Found my 802.11n network, entered the security key, and it connected right up. Automatically connected to HP's servers after the internet connection and checked for firmware. It printed the HP_Eprint setup page, I followed the directions on the sheet of paper for HP_Eprinting (where you can email doc's to your printer from anywhere to be printed) and I was headed to the races.

I literally spent more time removing the packing material and shipping tape from the printer then I did setting it up for actual use.

A reasonable computer user with knowledge on simple steps for turning on a computer, connecting to a wifi network/hotspot should be able get this printer running with ease. The elderly who barely can Skype with the grand kids or the housewife who cant navigate a DirecTv remote to also turn on the Pioneer stereo receiver may need some assistance.

All the specific functions of the printer test ok. It prints photos on 4X6 photo paper. I only ran a few Iphone pictures through it and the quality was acceptable. Can it be better? Sure it can, but this is a $100 ink-jet printer its not a photolab $50K Minolta.

Printing works from Iphone, Ipad, MacBook. Again print quality is acceptable for home and lite office use. This isnt a printer for magazine ready layout or desktop publishing nor have the duty cycle. It is a $100 ink-jet printer.

Scanning works.

I am amending my review below. This is the WORST HP printer I've ever had. The 4100 was a dream compared to this. I've only had the new one two months and I've had to replace the black ink cartridge three times. At first I thought it was just the starter cartridge which said low almost immediately but I couldn't believe it when the new cartridge said the same thing after a week. It just won't print. Now I've bought still another one which comes to almost $50 in ink cartridges. I checked on reviews and everyone says the same thing. I wish I had known this before. At this rate, in a few months I'll have spent the price of the printer in ink cartridges.

I had to replace my HP Photosmart4100 which was a nifty all in one that served my purposes - printed well and relatively quickly, scanned and copied fine too. I had it for about 5 years and it was great until the carriage mechanism died. I need something small in size that can print articles and text as well as print and scan pictures of my jewelry but I didn't want to spend a lot right now. So for around $100 this seemed like the next best thing. It was very easy to set up (I'm just using a USB to my MAC and no wireless features). I've come to the conclusion that newer is not necessarily better. The old scanner seemed better and I'm appalled at the snail's pace speed of the printing. It really is incredibly slow. I turned off the energy saver feature so at least it's on when I select print and saves one step. Haven't had it long enough to comment on other features. If it lasts for a year or two, I will have gotten my money's worth. One caveat, don't stock up on extra cartridges to save money. I have about $200 worth of unopened HP93 and 98 that I got on sale for my former model and now can't use. That being said, I still prefer HP to Epson.
