No, it does not need to be hooked to a computer once you configure the wireless option. You do have the option to use the screen located on front of the product to select your requests.

You can use it as a copier as it comes out of the box. To print to it without it being connected to your computer you need to have it connected to a wireless network. The software that comes with printer will take you through that process quite easily. Then you can print to it from another device that can access that same network. The printer comes with a USB cable so you can also have it directly connected to the printer. It also has an ePrint capability that enables you to print to it by sending an email to your printer. I have not tried this function and probably do not have a need to. Very versatile printer for the price.

to PC. Nice quality print job. Have not tried to print copies of pictures yet, but color on copy/print job is nice.

It is not auto double sided printing. You must reload after printing on the first side. It does have a BW only printing selection. For the money I paid, I am happy for how much I will use it.

The software that comes with the printer is not compatible with Windows 8. However, if you can initially load it on another device, setting it up for wireless mode, your computer with Windows 8 can pick it up and then you have the ability to install it from the web. Works great once installed!

Answers
answer 1
Yes, but when you insert the CD that comes with the printer into your computer to load the printer driver it will tell you it is not compatible with windows 8. That is because windows eight was not out when this particular printer was manufactured so the CD does not have the driver for the windows 8 operating system on it. That’s no problem as you can go to the HP website and simply download the driver for the 3056A printer free of charge. It will take only a few minutes and works perfectly.
