Well, dear husband insisted on 'researching' the latest and greatest printers, online, Consumer Reports, blah,blah,blah. I did want a multi-function since our fax is on its last legs and I wanted a new scanner. He said a particular Canon was great but hard to find and I was leaning towards the HP. I won!!! We found a highly rated model that had a $30 rebate and I had a $30 off coupon so the price was more than fair. We're a bit stumped with the fax set-up but he'll work on it when he gets home. The print quality is great. Thanks all for your input. I definitely took it all to heart and now I'm techno problem free.....for the minute! Maybe now I can work on a new business card for etsy.
