    What do you mean by "how well it works with the iPad"? Like colleagues or what?

    That's great. I have not had the time yet to update my iPad but I do have the hp envy in my office. Nice slim printer but it is a little hard on ink. Can't wait till days off so I can update all my iOS devices. :D

    I'm using a new HP printer (C410a) with ePrint and it's great. Love being able to print directly from the iPad and iPhone and it prints quickly!

    It would be nice if down the road a bit they give you some print options. Something like being able to print only in b & w. It's nice how you can increase the quantity of items printed though.

    about printing with eprint

    I have the following questions:
    Are you emailing to the printer to print directly to it?
    Can you print PDF files? Jpg? pages documents? numbers Documents? Emails?
    Any limitations?

    I am going to be buying a printer this week, and not just so my ipad will work with it. But I do want to be able to print documents, and emails, as well as photos.
    Thanks

    It prints fine both ways, I have rental homes I even do the leases now with pages and just hit print and away it goes..
    I have used the eprint and it works perfect.

    Please other HP users post reviews here.

    I have been printing photos, docs , mail and even shipping labels for eBay.

    No limits so far, ant thanks for using this thread as intended;)

    I had a look at the HP Printers that support AirPrint today, but none of them had a separate photo paper feed tray that I could see. I currently have a Kodak printer that does have one and it makes life much easier for printing photos (no messing around changing paper when printing photos out). Did I just miss it, or do none of the HP printers have a separate photo paper feed tray?

    HP Photosmart Plus B210a works perfectly

    Hello

    Just after upgrading the 2 iPads in our household I went to the next shop to buy a new HP Photosmart Plus B210a. First I was impressed about the ePrint feature. It was very easy to set the printer up and by email I was able to print several documents.
    To print directly with Airprint was not as easy as I thought. The printer was visible on my iPad but I received the message that the printer is offline. So I installed this printer also on my MacBook Pro and my Mac Mini and then the Airprint functionality worked also on my iPad. I have no clue why this offline issue happened.

    But I was very pleased when I have selected a nice picture of my son in Photo on my iPad and pressed the print button. And lucky me and thank you HP: the printer printed this picture without any further paper selection directly on a photo paper which I loaded in the separate paper tray for photo papers.

    It's really a big improvement to be able to print from the iPad!

    Cheers!

    Just got a Photosmart Premium C310 earlier this week and ADORE IT. Not just the iPad integration but also all of the other wireless features. Never thought I'd actually use all of the Internet stuff on the touchscreen but I do.

    I have this printer as well and think it is great. However I can't figure out a simple way of printing photos onto A4 paper. At the moment I am having to import them into Pages and then resize them to fit the page. Has anyone found a simple way of doing this or maybe a decent printing app that will help? I have tried the app ePrint but that leaves a small border around the edge of the A4 paper. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I also was in the market for a WiFi printer to replace an aging inkjet and picked up the Photosmart Premium C310 a couple of weeks ago. So far it's working great, though it did inexplicably turn off once. Other than that, it's been smooth sailing for our MacBook Pros, iPad, and iPhones.

    I really wanted a wireless printer that we could put downstairs instead of in an office upstairs connected to a computer, so this and the whole AirPrint timing worked out great for us. I love that I can upgrade the firmware over WiFi as well.

    We bought a Photosmart D110A from Amazon for just over $60. Thing works like a dream - printed from my iPhone with no set up. Prints wirelessly from my MBP and my wife's win 7 laptop w/ minor set up. I've mostly printed photos and emails. Very nice tech.....

    Thanks for starting this thread, I was thinking about getting one of these printers and was wondering how well they worked. Based on the posts here, I believe I am going shopping. :)

    I bought Printopia for $9 for my Mac. Makes my printer (any printer) work with iOS. And not only can it print, but it'll save as a PDF on my Mac as well. Very handy.
