    man this is getting frustrating.

    printer runs out of ink color and no audible alarms built into the firmware.

    unless you are watching the thing print 24/7 you never would know you are out of ink?

    why is this HP? can you PLEASE ad some audible alarms in the next stellar firmware go around?

    I believe ours beeps and then sits there and waits for you to load more ink. But it's only one beep. So if your not always around it your screwed.

    Setup email notifications, I get an email pretty quickly after any type of error on our unit.

    Ouch, sorry, losing $150 in materials is no fun! Hopefully they'll fix that!

    That is annoying but Onyx will also pop a warning when that happens and we typically have someone looking at Onyx all day long, either loading up jobs or finishers using the cut server, etc. Plus if anyone in the shop notices a red light on the printer they know to inform the right people that something's up.

    A better beep system would be nice though.

    When mine is really low I just keep an eye on it and it is no problem.

    Looking at the email setup there isn't a lot of options is there. We run our own local mail server and that is what it sends the emails through, so probably easier then trying to go offsite, especially when there isn't an option for a password.
