Deskjet5850I bought a HP DeskJet 5850 from a week or so ago (if you're not familiar with, check it out, but I warn you now - it's an addition).

The printer arrived and was waiting on my doorstep last night. It's a decent photo printer, on par with the 7760 model I have used in the past, but it has one thing the 7760 lacks - built-in networking support.

And the DJ5850 not only has ethernet support, it has wireless networking hardware built right in.

All printers should work like this. I just pulled the printer out of the box, powered it up, stuck the cartridges in, set up the software and drivers on my laptop, and within a couple of minutes the printer was live on my wireless network, and I was printing borderless 8.5x11 photos that look just like they came from a photo lab.

Now I can stick this printer anywhere in the house I desire and print to it over the network from any computer I want.
