I’ve been an engineer for nearly 40 years. During that time HP really meant something, especially for instrumentation.
When they gave up the instrumentation division, their innovation, their smarts and vision and turned the company into a printer giveaway to sell inkjet cartridges and the odd PC and laptops, I knew it could only go south from there.
I have an HP desktop....stupid me bought an HP printer to go with. The damned thing wouldn’t even talk to the computer much of the time. The wireless option was worthless. Completely worthless.
I finally trashed the printer and got an Epson 545 with AirPrint...much much better. All my Apples can print to it....seamless connection BTW.
I am a 25 yr engineer, with my last 14 in HP after they bought the company I worked for. I resolved to accept the EER package this last go-round.
Every mention of HP in the business news since then has reaffirmed my decision.
I won't buy a HP computer but I did buy a HP 7515 wireless printer a few months ago. Works like a champ. No probs so far.
