    I love HP over any other brand first of all, but I love that is it wireless. We have 2 laptops for school (my Husband and I are finishing college) and 2 desktops (which we never use and need to get rid of) and it is so hectic trying to connect them to the printer or to get to the computer that the printer is hooked up to. I also love the ENERGY EFFIECIENCY!!!

  2. 352

    I would love to have a printer that prints faster and bursts with color. It is very annoying to have to stand at the printer, waiting and waiting ans waiting for your picture to come out.

    I really like it because it can print, scan, copy and fax. It uses individual ink cartridges too.

  6. 356

    I love the paper saving printing! A couponers dream! I also think the touch screen is pretty cool (even if it isn’t perfect).

  7. 357

    Wireless! I would love to be able to ditch that short connector cord my printer requires.

  8. 358

    I have this printer and let me tell you it is AWESOME!!! I would love to win this for my daughter she is ALWAYS coming over to print coloring pages for my grandson “which of course I don’t mind” but she really would love having one of her own. she is a single WORKING parent and its hard for her to buy such a nice product for herself.. this would be a wonderful xmas present for her and my grandson!! thanks for the chance to enter this contest…

    Thanks for writing such an informative review. My fave feature is the separate ink cartridges so you only replace the color that needs replacing.

  10. 360

    Wireless printing would be SOO helpful when I get my lap top so I won’t have to run upstairs if I see a coupon that has to be printed a/s/a/p (not our of laziness, T don’t want to leave the little ones by themselves!)

    Can’t decided between the space-saving size of the printer or the separate photo paper tray as my favorite feature. Just love this printer and would love to win it!

    I like that it is a spacesaver and wireless. I love that it is linked to Disney and Nick Jr. My little girl loves to color and that is GREAT!!!

  15. 365

    i like that it was two seperate trays for paper and photos. I think that would be useful for me.

  16. 366
  17. 367

    absolutely wonderful giveaway, I love love love the fact that it prints quality, professional looking photo’s. I am an aspiring photographer and this would be amazing to have :)

  18. 368

    I really like that it is energy efficient. I am trying to do everything I can to cut down the cost of my energy bill…especially in times like this.

    I’m also an HP fan. My favorite feature is being able to print photos without changing the paper. No wait…’s the fact that it’s wireless. Or maybe it’s cuz I can print from my phone. Geez… someone help me. I can’t pick only one !!!!

    I like that it scans and will print photos. My daughter loves taking pictures and scrapbooking. she also is working on a family tree project. This would come in very handy. wireless and energy efficient also a plus.

  25. 375

    I love that you don’t have to be hooked up to your computer in order to get the internet. I really could use this. thanks for the entry.

  26. 376

    This is just what I need for the classroom, no wait, it’s just what I need for my home crafting. Hmmm, which one?? Loved the demo video of this.

    I love the fact that it has two separate photo trays and that the picture quality is apparently amazing :-)

  31. 381

    Oh to have a wireless printer! My printer lives in my basement which means printing out my pics happens VERY infrequently. Yes, I have an ok regular printer, but use it only for B&W things. I’d LOVE to have a nice printer that I could use for pictures, math sheets, word searches and the fact that it is wireless means I can actually stop lugging my other one up and down the stairs when its picture printing time!

    I LOVE the scanner! I used to have one and it broke :( It’s such a neat feature to scan in all those photos I took before I broke down and bought a digital camera! :)

  36. 386
  37. 387

    I love the wireless features and the separate ink cartridges along with the picture quality!

  38. 388

    I didn’t know that a printer could do a 2-sided printing — that would be really great! Plus HP printers seem like a good quality printer.

  39. 389

    I LOVE that it is wireless. We dont have enough space as it is and this would be great to be able to put it wherever we want to. Thanks!

  40. 390

    The best possible thing is that it uses separate ink color cartridges! I *know* we have colors that run out faster than others, but you have to buy a new cart anyway (and they’re EXPENSIVE) – this would solve ALL of those issues! :)

  41. 391
  42. 392

    I love best–not having to change paper to print photos! Someone busy came up with that one.

  43. 393

    I LOVE that it is wireless, uses multiple ink cartridges and that it prints quickly. But most of all that you can connect to the WEB !! Awesome and amazing!

  44. 394

    I love the option of printing from any room this would be great to use with my laptop.

  45. 395

    I love HP printers they are the best. The only printer I will ever buy. The best thing for me is the ease to print all of my pictures of my girls.

  46. 396

    I love the double-side option as well as the relationship with Would be nice to not have to turn on the computer to print coupons!

  47. 397
  48. 398

    I love that I would be able to print from my Ipod touch – what a great feature! I also love the wireless feature for printing from my laptop.

  49. 399

    I love, like you said, that it is a Space- Saver Extraordinaire! I would love not having to have my printer hooked up right next to my computer because I don’t have the room for it!

  50. 400

    Love the idea of separate ink cartridges so I only have to replace the ones that need replacing, and also the Support Services with a Toll Free number! It’s always great to know that you have backup when you run into a problem. The separate trays are great to separate documents from photos. I too am a great fan of HP products! Truly need this so that I have a good scanner to scan all of the photos left to me by my late parents. Would like to make a book for my daughter and granddaughters.
