This really is a remarkable machine. Both B&W and color printing of text, graphics, and photos are top notch; automatic duplexing is nice (please note, if you are considering the 476nw, the main difference between the M476nw and the 476dw is that the 476nw is only capable of manual, guided duplexing, not automatic).
I use Staples Bright White Laser Paper 28 lb/105g for normal printing. The best paper I have found for printing photos with this printer is HP Glossy Laser Brochure Paper 52 lb/200g (also available in 40 lb/150g, so be careful what you're buying). I buy it directly from HP. The thicker version of this paper feels almost as thick as 61 lb/230g or 69 lb/260g premium inkjet photo paper and is made specifically for HP color laser printers.
Please be aware that M476 series printers do not have a straight-through paper path, out the back of the printer, even from tray 1. This means this printer will not handle the heaviest cardstock you might want to use, but envelopes fed from tray 1 curl up into the output bin with no problems.
It perform well at all functions printing, copying , and faxing. Love the duplex printing. Duplex scan functionality to email and a network drive really comes in handy. The inside contains a tray which holds all four of the toner cartridges . That makes changing the cartridges much simpler. Paper tray can be adjusted to accept legal size paper however, it will stick about two inches past the front of the printer. It may take you a few seconds to figure out how to readjust the tray back to 81/2 x 11 paper. Applications. The HP AIO Remote app worked well on my IOS and Microsoft Surface devices. It supports printing, scanning, copying, plus toner level monitoring. The printers web integration allowed me to e-mail print jobs to the printer while on the road. Networking, it worked well using the wired and wireless functionality. I chose to stick with wireless in case I moved it to a location without an ethernet jack.

HP M476dn Color Photo Printer with Scanner, Copier and FaxM476dn Prints are reasonably fast and duplexing doesn't seem to slow things down. The sheet fed scanner reads both sides of paper on a single pass, which is a very nice feature. The flatbed scanner is only letter size, though at least HP made the scanner cover able to rise up so that books can be scanned. Interaction with the printer is via a color touch screen which works fairly well. There is a scan to email and scan to network functionality that produces great PDF files. The menus to do this were awkward when having to scan multiple pages from the flat-bed; you are required to delve several levels into on-screen menus to set this and cannot specify multiple pages in the presets. This is too bad, because it makes scanning several pages of receipts more inconvenient and that is the primary reason I use the scanner. The touch screen also has 'web apps' though I'm not sure what they do.

If there is any disadvantage to the M476, it is consumables. The cartridges that ship with the printer are 'nerfed' and have just over 1,300 pages of life. Replacement toner cartridges, which include a drum (a good thing), are over $100 each. There are far cheaper third party toner sets, but I haven't tried them and cannot report on the quality.
Overall, I'm very impressed at this nearly perfect multi-function laser printer. It literally does everything I want for high quality printing, scanning and copying for the home and my home office. The only demerit is due to the cheat cartridges that ship with the unit and high consumable costs. In the end, the costs were worth it to me and I'm getting great use out of this MFP.
