HP DeskJet F4480 Reviews

PCworld reviews the HP DeskJet F4480 and writes;
“During our tests, the standard cartridges allowed us to print our 20-page A4 test document in normal mode on plain paper, as well as 27 ‘best’ quality 6x4in photos using HP Advanced photo paper. We didn’t have to wait too long for the photos: each print came out in 28sec. The 20-page test document (which is a mixture of text pages, test patterns, images, graphs and gradients) came out at a rate of 2.1 pages per minute, with the first page out in 39sec. This rate will vary depending on the content of your pages; The quality of the text is sharp and even 6-point reversed text looked clear.”

Testfreaks reviews the HP DeskJet F4480 and writes;
“Black and white printing is nice and fast and the printer is not quite loud but not exactly quiet either. The quality of the black and white printing is acceptable but it’s nowhere near that of my Epson WorkForce 610, it just isn’t really crisp and clean it looks kind of fuzzy actually, but it is readable and basically acceptable overall.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Bonafidereviews reviews the HP DeskJet F4480 and writes;
“Overall, the F4480 is a pretty solid black and white printer and has fairly strong scanning properties. It’d almost be worth buying to use solely as a scanner if you’re in the market for one at a good price. Printing black and white documents isn’t bad either, but photos and black and white and color mixes look pretty terrible.”

HP DeskJet F4480 User Reviews

Great little Black Beauty, | Rating: ★★★★★
“..One of the big pluses for me is that each time it is turned on it is ready to go at once. My other printer was the HP1500 and each time it was turned on it went through a series of realignments and unnecessary procedures that took forever! For the price, which is ridiculously low,this little baby can’t be beat! And I recommend it most highly. “ – by Robert D. Archibald

Pleased with HP Purchase, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The price of the HP almost deterred me(too cheap);however the price(not much to lose) made the final decision. In the past the HP’s I’ve used have been plagued with paper jams. This one has been jam free thus far. The print quality has been excellent. I’ve been printing a lot of CD jackets as I’m converting my Vinyl Collection to digital. The picture quality on the CD jackets has been excellent. “ – by potential62

“It works and performs as advertised. The printer has a tendency to jamb when printing side two of an orginal sheet in more than three pages. Start of the first copy is slower than expected before copying begins. That is not a disadvantage for me because I do not have a need for frequent copying. The copier produces brillant color copies. I would not hesitate recommending this product to others. “ – by Alfred L. Keyes

Works perfect for a cheap printer., | Rating: ★★★★★
“This HP DeskJet F4480 prints extremely crisp text quickly and quietly. The scans/copies it does could not be any better. The scans even made things show up clearly that we could not see on the originals such as hidden marks. It prints very fast and the replacement inks are quite cheap for this printer.” – by S. Stafford

Downloading software required — CD’s faulty | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The packed installation CD’s have some fault in the software preventing installation fully completing. Best download the “full feature” driver package, which actually has utilities as well — same thing as CD but up to date and fixed, and runs more simply from hard disk. The HP website is quite good. “ – by glresearch

Great all in one for the price, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Installed easily with Windows 7, but typical of software, one should pick and choose what to load. Unit does all functions well and the cost of the ink is much less than my older unit. I could just about buy this unit for the cost of my old printers’ ink cartridges. “ – by Hanoverart

I enjoy my new priner, | Rating: ★★★★★
“As expected the HP printer works very well. I am very satisfied with the print quality. Its small and portable enough for my motor home, which is where it will be used mos of the time. It looks like If I buy an attachment this printer will print duplex. I’m looking into this. My HP J6480 prints duplex and I love it also.” – by John Falcon

Great Buy! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I’m really pleased with this purchase, I use it all the time for documents to be turned in as I’m currently in college. Everything I’ve printed so far has been clean and crisp. The scanner/copier works perfect aswell. Installation was simple, I installed it with Windows 7 without any problems. I highly reccomend it! “ – by Brandon Kister
