I used a CD to install, but the packaging information did give a website that you could use to install, so I think that you would be safe without a CD drive.

No. But they did get 1 out of 3 right.
Height is not 15.4 inches but is 5.4 inches.
Width is correct - 17.5 inches.
Depth is not 23.9 inches but is 13.9 inches (with door open in front).

Look for the menu button in the printer and using the arrows move down until you find "WIRELESS" once you are there click OK and the printer shall start searching for a Wireless signal just like your mobile phone usually does, once the wireless signals are shown on the printer look for your WiFi and click Ok it will ask you for the password and you can enter this using the menu and arrows on the printer. Once you have type it in click OK again and you shall get a message saying its connected. also once connected your printer will show a steady blue light.

You don't even need to use the computer to make a copy. You can copy straight from the printer. We also enjoy the guided tool that you download to the computer itself. I would recommend this printer to meet your needs.

If you click on the HP printer in the all programs it will open up a menu. Then you can put a paper to be scanned in or whatever you want printed just right click and select print. Hope this helps. Oh, you do not need to copy to print.

The margins closest to the edge of the page for this printer is .25. Any margins less than that and you will have to get a professional style printer.

If you sign up for the monthly delivery program then yes, however you can adjust deliveries based on ink usage so if you don't use all the ink in a month you can choose every 2 months, 3 months, 2 weeks etc.

answer 5
Not necessarily. This depends on how much ink you used that month. The amount of ink they send lasts for about 500 pages, if I'm not mistaken. So if you use 500 pages in a month (which will of course cost more), then yes they will send it monthly. But if you use only 50 pages per month, they won't send another next month.
