Notes on HP Envy use - 2nd day of use
OK... so I've been "playing" (to quote some here!) with the Envy, and it has a little bit of funkiness, but I BET much of that is connected with my network.
I tried to print a six page document and it printed pages 3-6, omitting pages 1-2. When I tried to print again, it was hung up. So I restarted both printer and iPad, and it seemed to have trouble finding the printer. It finally did, and printed the document fine. Hmmm...
I mentioned earlier that I was curious if the printer selected the print size based on what size of paper was loaded... I tried it with some HP 4x6 photo paper, and it sized the photo to fit the paper - I suspect it's because HP photo paper has coding on the back to indicate what size and type (an assumption - not sure if it can detect type, meaning glossy or matte, advanced or premium) of paper it is. So... with HP photo paper, it does auto select.
With non-HP photo paper - I put a 4x6 sheet in and it spit it out and told me to load some paper. It was Ilford Gold-Fiber Silk, kind of heavy and it may not have liked it.
So... there aren't many controls on the printing process. I'm used to a color-balanced system using ICM profiles or my RIP program for printing out of Photoshop onto my Epson 4880. This AIN'T that. But for quick printing of docs and pics, it seems ok.
Of the photo apps I have (PS Express, Photogene, and FolioBook), only the native Photo app handles printing at all at this point.
OH! And I see that the HP Envy 100 is on sale for $50 off at Best Buy (so, $199), so I'm going back there with my receipt for a pricematch! Cool!
