This model suffers from an annoying bug in the software. The printer has a duplex unit for two-sided printing but when it's connected to a wired network as a network-attached printer, when you request two-sided printing you get a message saying that the duplex unit isn't attached, even though it is. It gives you two options, to cancel or to print anyway. Print anyway, however, still prints duplex, despite what the message says! There is a complex solution to this problem that you can read on the HP Forums but there is no HP supplied solution.

There is another problem with a couple of processes failing to terminate at Shutdown. There s a solution to this problem by installing Rel 11 or higher of the HP Solution Center software except HP doesn't provde an update to those levels for this model! You have to install from software designed for another model.

All in all, the quality of HP's software leaves a lot to be desired. Pity because the printer itself isn't a bad model.
