Re: Color LaserJet 2840 for Windows 7 (64-Bit)

I'm a late bloomer to Windows 7; after my HD crashed the other day I decided to install Win7 64 bit. 

From reading all the forums and desperately searching google it seems you can ONLY Print over the network but have to plug directly into USB to SCAN and FAX. It doesn't bother me as much that you have to fax directly from the Printer, since that is how I use it anyway, but It's ridiculous that HP abandoned the remote scanning capabilities of this product. Printing and Scanning over the Network is the only reason I bought it and I'm sure MOST people bought it for all three reasons. I cannot move my printer next to my PC to scan to my computer. So now I have to either run a VM to use dual-boot to boot to windows XP to use the functions I am used to. How crazy is that? I can assure you when I finally run out of toner I will be selling this thing for something better and possibly even a NON-HP product. It's sad HP, you used to be the leader in compute and printers and now you are neither.
