So, you're not in favour of HP then?
I agree with you about the 500's, great little machines.
I've always found their laser printers to be excellent and amazingly durable.
Found their scanners to be a pain.
Neither like nor use a lot of the software that comes with their latest printers.
(I have one IIID that's still in service after 20+ years)
software has nothing to do with HP hardware that I can see.
And... the price is right.
