Can anyone recommend a good upgrade from a HP 2410 All-in-one that can copy/print & scan?

It doesn't have to fax as I now fax from PC via VOIP.

What I would like is:

Network ready (either Ethernet or wireless/bluetooth)
Good quality scanner resolution
Scan to PDF function

I was looking mainly at Brother and Canon, (Inkjet that is). Unsure about HP as their software leaves alot to be desired (One of the reasons I'm upgrading is that the 2410 does not support Vista, contacted HP and they basically told be to buy a new one, HP of course.)

Suggestions welcomed.

Many All-in-Ones have very high scanning resolution for normal use - my new $49 HP F4185 scans huge pictures, which sometimes I need to set the DPI setting lower then the default 200. (You can even see the picture grain when scanning!)

Scan to PDF should be common as well.

You're probably using the PSC 2410 - I've got a PSC 2310. I do agree with the software point.
With my new F4185, the software has changed a little (so instead of HP Director, they've got a more rounder HP Solution Center and a few new printing functions... etc), but the HP Scanning software interface really hasn't changed much.

I can't really give you any suggestions, as my family has been running off HPs since the early 1990s (HP Deskjet 500c...)
