Comment:
I bought one Envy printer and had to return it because of a faulty command screen. (Neither I nor the repair guy could get it to display info such as copy, scan and other commands it was supposed to display.) I then took home another Envy and was unable to get the scan function to work. Granted, I have an old computer and a MAC operating system of 10.6.8, but that was supposed to be okay. Finally I gave up. I'm now looking around for an alternative printer.
