Hello, I know this may be a very vague question but I am in the market for a new printer that can scan, copy, print, fax. I would like the printing to be superb (but not necessarily pro) on glossy printing paper. The scan function should be great quality too.

I currently own an older HP Officejet 6210. The printer worked great on my PC with Windows XP. However, I have no upgraded to a Win 7 PC and the scanning part has issues (I have found out that others have too with the printer and Win 7). I have opted to get something newer and better that works with Windows 7. I am not an HP die-hard fan so I can look for other brands as well. I dont need a FAST printer either.

Any recommendation for home use?

Thanks!

I have no favorites, but when purchasing a new iMac for my wife I got offered the $100.00 Apple rebate on a printer, and chose an office printer, the Epson Workforce 615. It's a network printer/fax/scanner, etc., has Ethernet and USB ports, and can can do things via WIFI if that's what you want. Since the reabte was $100.00, I paid $49.00 for it.

From what I've found you need a dedicated photo printer to get 'superb' results.

Thanks for the reply...I should have stated that I can go a notch below "superb", :)

I forgot to mention I would like the wireless/network capability too.

Rafromak, you got a great deal there.

I just got the Canon MG 5220. It does great photo printing better than the local walmart. I like it because it uses the seperat ink cartrages and over teh long run it saves money. Network was easy to set up has dual paper trays and scanner dosent do a bad job eater.

I'll throw this out for whatever it's worth... We needed a new printer recently so we got the HP Photosmart Premium e-all-in-one model C310. We use it almost exclusively for document printing, but is also does a very nice job on 4x6 borderless prints (it has a separate tray for that size paper). It is networkable and has a duplexer for automatic two-sided copies. It is a five ink printer: regular black, plus cyan, yellow, magenta, and photo black. I've done a few prints with HP Advanced Photo Paper 4x6 and have been very pleased with them, but have never tried anything larger.

When I first installed it I had trouble with it seemingly disappearing from the network, but then a Windows update popped up that said it fixed a problem with network printers disappearing on Windows 7. I installed the update and it has been solid ever since.

Also does scanning and copying.

Thank you zrock and Rimmer...I am actually going to the store this evening and look for the printers you mentioned and check them out. The Canon that zrock mentioned has gotten GREAT reviews from newegg and Amazon. Thanks again
