I asked a HP agent for his recommendation, and he said this device. I took his word for it as I was out of a printer at tax time. Well, I got it home. It had no hook-ups for anything but wireless, so I did the whole nine yards, first with instructions off of the printer, then with instructions off the disc that was sent with the printer in the box. Sure enough, neither way got me connected to my PC (my HP PC). Said something or other wasn't standard or something of that nature for an excuse. I am not geek. So I fooled with it, went on line and did a bunch of stuff. Still the same ole thing and that I could use it with my particular PC (my HP PC) but I would have to do it through email, to which I had visions popping up in my head that every time I wanted to print a receipt, I would have to make an email file. So, after fooling around with this thing for 2 or 3 hours, I flipped it around backwards to see if I had any other options. And lo-and-behold, there was a place for a wired connection. So I pulled my old printer's cable off, and wham, blamm, pooey, the PC now recognized the printer, and the printer recognized the PC, and everything is happy in Mudville again. All that being said, the printer makes nice prints. It got me through tax season. It is a good enough printer for me, although I think I paid too much for it. I think the price is down $20 or so since I bought it. This is a good enough printer and doesn't need a great big space to sit in. So use your own judgment if you have this printer in your sights. And if you are looking for wireless (which I really was not) you might think again. The ads look like it does it all itself and easily. I did not find that to be the case.
