With my frustration level high, I decided I was time for a new inkjet printer. There’s nothing wrong with my HP DeskJet 6127. It still works fine. It however is not designed for high quality photo printing and it is not compatible with iOS AirPrint. After doing a little online shopping I found the HP C410A to be a worthy replacement. It had all the right options for me.
Typically once a product gets home it fails to live up to my expectations. I have historically not been a fan of All-in-one printers as they usually are disappointing in their necessary compromises. So far this little printer has exceeded my expectations in several ways. The setup was easy. Each computer immediately recognized the printer. My iOS devices also recognized it. The web interface is clean and easy to use.
One feature I really love is ‘Webscan’. This allows you to scan a document from just a web page. This means that I can scan using an iPad. This is in addition to the ability to scan to a flash drive.
I was skeptical about ePrint. The jury is still out on its actual usefulness. With this feature I can email a document to HP and it will come out the printer. Sounds like a fax machine to me.
Looks like this printer is going to work out. I’ve taken the old inkjet and fax machine off the work bench and replaced them with one device. I have not replaced my copier and laser printer as I feel they are still better suited for their respective jobs. Overall I’d have to recommend this little printer.
