The fax seems to work well. I haven't used the scanner much, but recall having some problems (its been awhile since Ive scanned with it).

The printer is fine and fast when it works, but on numerous occasions it does truly bizarre and obnoxious stuff like printing one line of gibberish across the top of the page (for example "X987&&&&," etc.) and then it starts printing page after page and wont stop until the printer is turned off. Or, often it will simply report a "PCL XL error" whatever the heck that is.
HP already had to replace the machine once. Customer service tells me brilliant stuff like turn it off and on again.
