I purchased this product to replace my HP fax machine (which I loved but ink cartridges were discontinued). It is serving my purposes as a fax (although without all the convenient features of my HP), but it is horrible as a phone - SO MUCH BACKGROUND STATIC that I have to use another phone when a call comes. I've tried a new handset and even tried a 2nd Fax-575, but no improvement.
I send only about 20 faxes per year, so I needed a machine that was low cost but reliable. The 575 is nearly perfect for me: easy to set up, very easy to use, and nearly perfectly reliable. The one problem is the paper feed: the paper feed mechanism sometimes grabs more than one sheet and sends them through the machine, causing me to add these extra sheets to the end of the fax package.
