HP PSC 2410/2510

    Greetings. About eight or nine months ago I came this close -> <- to
    buying the PSC 2210 but there was 'something' that held me back. Now
    that it's discontinued already, I'm really glad I waited.

    At the moment I'm looking at the 2410 or, more likely (because of the
    networking), the 2510 and I've got a few questions. Any insights?

    First of all, on HP's page for discontinued hardware they say explicitly
    that there is no replacement for the 2210. I wonder why the 2410/2510
    are not considered to be successors to the 2210; they seem so similar:
    multifunction, including FAX; six-colour capable, etc., etc.

    Also, I have downloaded the .pdf manual(s) for both of these machines (I
    say 'manual(s)' because for the features in which the 2410 and 2510 are
    the same, the docs are word-for-word the same) and there is obviously
    something wrong.

    For the 2210, it was clearly stated that the Compact Flash I/II slot
    card reader could read the IBM MicroDrive. In the index of both 2410 and
    2510 manuals there is an entry for 'MicroDrive', referring you to page
    21. But on page 21, where it discusses the photo cards, there is in fact
    NO MENTION of the MicroDrive!

    In another place, it says that Compact Flash cards up to 1 gig can be
    used, BUT it explicitly says 'solid state only'.

    So, the question is: can the MicroDrive be used with these printers, or
    not?

    Finally, are there differences, major or minor, in the functionality of
    the Windows and Mac versions of the HP Director software? The discussion
    in the manual(s) is quite vague about one feature I am particularly
    interested in--sending a FAX directly from the computer. I would hate to
    buy this machine and find out that sending a FAX directly can only be
    done with Windows.

    TIA for any comments.

    cheers,

    Henry
