We have been limping along on with Stu's old Lexmark all-in-one printer. It was about three years old and the wireless never really worked as advertised. With the cost of new printers dropping steadily, we looked into getting a new all-in-one.
One feature that is now available on the lower cost printers is an auto-document feed for faxing, scanning and copying. While we won't use the fax capability (no land-line), the copy/scan functions are what we use most frequently.
After much research I chose the HP OfficeJet 4500 Wireless All-in-One (be careful, the same model is offered in a non-wireless model). It arrived on Wednesday an in less than 30 minutes the wireless was up and running flawlessly. The only issue we had was the paper not feeding initially..I think that might have been due to the humidity level, it's working fine now.
Yesterday we easily added Stu's PC to the mix. Not a blip! Today we are happily scanning and printing. The auto-document feed says it will hold up to 25 sheets but I don't see us testing that. LOL! We have fed in several related documents and it worked great.
I use IrfanView for scanning....it's been my graphic program of choice for over 15 years (and it's still free). If I am scanning more than one item, I can assign a name and a numbering scheme. Worked like a charm.
I hope to get my old photos scanned much more easily so I can pass them along to my kids and still have them on my computer. I just have to remember to back them up to SmugMug and DVDs.
Not much else is new...Sadie started her own blog after vet appointment. You can see it on ToadilyPets or direct at Sadie Speaks. She's doing well...up from 6# to 10.2# in a little over 3 weeks.
We went to dinner with our Thursday night group, followed that with a mile walk around the mall and topped it off with a movie, "Life As We Know It". Fun movie with lots of laughs!
Not sure if I ever posted about seeing the move RED with Bruce Willis. We loved it...the movie was only about a quarter done when I told Stu we WOULD be getting the DVD when it comes out. If you like the Die Hard series or enjoyed True Lies, then I think you will love this movie.
We are currently waiting for our mail to arrive...knew it would be today or tomorrow. Well, looks like it will be tomorrow so we will hit the road for TN on Sunday.
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
