If you have choosen text then a dialog pops up asking wether you want to open the pdf file or save it. If you choose picture then a new browse window pops up. You can save the windows content when the scan is done.
At first I had difficulties, looks not very robust but is usable:
- You must allow pop up windows otherwise it does not work (Konqueror: Settings.Configure Konqueror.Java & Javascript.javascript.Open new window allow) (Firefox: Edit.Preferences.Content.Block popup windows not selected)
- If I first do preview and then scan it hangs. Reset button does not work.
- Firebug reports errors on the web page ?? I ignore them.

The scan quality I can not compare as this is the first time I am using a scanner. So far it looks good to me.

If you know how to make xsane work over the network that would be great to learn.

Thanks, Ernst!

I didn't know about the printer's web program, but I just checked it out and it's very cool.

Do you remember where you found this info?

Thanks again,

Hi JohnE1,
Don't remember where I found out. But it's also here:

document?docname=c00809939&cc=us&lc=en&

In another post on this thread I have also pointed out how you can scan over the network directly using xsane.

Regards,
Ernst

Well, I posted in this thread a while back and finally got around to buying. We ended up with a C8180 which is a fairly new all in one.
I'm having problems getting hplip to work though so for now I just set up a basic printer in cups and it works fine that way but I can't switch to the photo tray and things like that.
The network scanning over the built in web page works, just just not the best scan in the world, just a basic jpg limited to a few different sizes available in the drop down. It would be nice if it did the auto cropping liek a lot of scanning software.

I've never had to align the head on any Epson printer.

We have not heard from OP and he/she may not give a hoot about photo printing.....
I dis-agree. There are maintenance utilities for certain models, but not for all models. GUI programs do not count. I prefer CLI. If I can not get GUI to work, GUI utilities becomes useless.

Amount of refills and time it takes to do refills will hurt the down time. Laser printers are better. They print a lot faster and the toner bonds to the paper, so a drop a water can not make it bleed.

Laser printers a lot more reliable in the dirties environments. Also it is reliable when the printer has sitting with out printing a long time.

With my Brother HL-5140, I can print 40 pages per minute at the best quality. Can you do that with a inkjet. You are lucky you can get a page per minute from a inkjet printer at the highest setting.

Hello Electro,

I do agree that Brother has great laser printers and multifunctions, but a Brother HL-5140 at 40 ppm looks a bit exaggerated. The Brother HL-5140 is a 20 ppm machine, not a 40 ppm.

Best regards,

Yves

Yes it is true that Brother HL-5140 has a rating of 20 pages per minute. I have print a job that had 100+ pages, it printed that a lot faster than 8 minutes and 45 seconds. I was using hard stock or heavy stock paper. If you search the internet, many have said that it prints faster than 20 pages per minute. I am have not yet upgraded the memory in it.
