    I have just bought my wife an iPad2 and she is so thrilled with it I suspect she will have no further use for me. Before I receive the divorce papers I would like to get her an Airprint printer to allow her to print directly from the iPad, mainly for photos and the pictures she is creating using the brilliant Brushes app.

    I have researched reviews quite widely, and the trouble is that all the various Airprint machines (including those recommended by Which?) are reviled with almost hysterical comments on their numerous failings. There are plenty of favourable reviews, but most of these seem to come from people who have only used them for a day or so.

    I am not too concerned about costs, but would like to get a printer suitable for home use that works properly and is reliable in the long term. Anyone got any suggestions from their own experience?

    NB Both my wife and I are computer dunces.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    We have a HP 6510 and it allows me to print straight from the iPad, but like you said, we've only had it for a couple of weeks and are really yet to put it through its paces. Others I'm sure will chime in. Enjoy!

    I have an hp 3050A. With the hp printer control app, I can print, scan and copy as well as capture pictures. I'm quite satisfied with it. I got it at BestBuy about a year ago but they don't list it on their website anymore. I guess by the time I got to know how to use it, the printer became obsolete. Amazon still has it though.
