This is a good machine, but as many have pointed out the software can be a problem. Here's some software install advice (below) to make it work well for you.

I have a Brother laser AIO at my office that I love, but I chose this HP for my home for several reasons. The WiFi Brother unit has a 10 page document feeder compared to HP's 25 page. This was important to me, maybe not you. I really like the styling of the HP better. The HP rep was in Best Buy and printed off a photo for me. It was fantastic. I've reproduced the same results at home, though I didn't buy it as a photo printer. The Brother has a phone handset hanging off the side that I will never use. The HP looks & feels like a higher quality product, though the Brother reviews are good.

Follow the quick start guide to set up on your LAN. I have WEP and had no problems...literally a couple minutes to setup.

1st, in general, never use photo manipulation software that these printer companies provide. If you need to work with photos invest in a good commercial product. There's some reasonabally priced products.

2nd. Trash the disk that comes with the printer and go straight to HP.com and download the latest drivers. That have fixes most of the problems the other reviews point out. You have two download options, drivers only or full software. I did drivers only and it worked fine, however you loose control of some of the units settings, so I went back and got the full package.

However, I highly recommend this installation method that I used.

Unzip the download and run. then...
1. Choose the custom (not the "easy" recommended) installation option.
2. Choose "NO" on the next pages which asks if you want to do auto updates.

I did a lot of research into just about every AiO variant out there before deciding on the C7280. This replaces an aging Epson scanner, an old Panasonic Thermal Fax machine and a networked Lexmark Inkjet Printer in a home office. I looked at the various choices from Brother, Epson, Canon, Lexmark, other HP products and even the new Kodak AiO. For my money, this printer had the best overall combination of features and specs. The print/scan/copy resolution ranges, the 33.6 fax modem, the duplexer, built-in ADF, LCD display and the ability to run many functions without a PC all for under $300 was what I wanted. The small footprint was a plus. The various tray/covers, etc. are not the most sturdy I've ever seen, but are about as good as I've seen on most AiO's in this price range. I think that unless you are throwing rocks at it, the pieces/parts should hold up to home office use. The C7280 does a pretty good job in each of the four areas of print/scan/copy/fax. I've had this printer now for 3 weeks, and overall, so far, so good. Everything works as promised, but there are a few HW and SW `gotchas' to note.Read more ›

Printer, scanner, copier, fax, ADF, duplexer, color LED information display, USB, wired Ethernet, 802.11B/G wireless, memory card reader (CF, SD/MMC, XD, MS/Duo). The HP C7280 is a marvelous dream machine. Has a photo paper tray and a red eye removal button too. My unit (French) came with OCR scanning software. Haven't tried it though. The unit is surprisingly modest in size.

Documentation and software is very good. Be patient with software installation. It is not a quick process. All my computers are Windows Vista Premium. Before installing, disable anti-virus software, possibly firewall, file sync, and backup software. The software warned about this. I ignored the warnings and the installation process failed until I disabled them. An end user should never have to be concerned about this -- but I digress.

I'm using the printer to print documentation (mono), usually two-up and double sided. Print quality seems fine although I'm not looking with a critical eye. My printer is networked wirelessly to the router. First page out is very fast on my Ethernet wired computer but somewhat slow on my wireless notebook. The slowness is probably inherent to the notebook-to-router-to-printer wireless networking as opposed to the C7280. Making one of the links wired seems to make a speed difference. If you find this to be an issue, consider putting the printer on an AC power line network such as the well reviewed Panasonic BL-PA100KTA HD-PLC Ethernet Adaptor.

With so many functions, this machine is a modern marvel. I'm really suprised at how well this newly produced machine works. There's a lot of difficult technology packed into this box. Great work HP!

I have three minor issues.
