HP Photosmart C3180 Reviews

Ciao reviews the HP Photosmart C3180 and writes;
“I have found that the print quality is absolutely superb, in my opinion it matches that of a laser printer (it really is that good and makes the previous Canon and Epson printers look poor in comparison). This is probably due to the fact that HP printers have their print head built into the cartridge, what this means is that everytime you change your ink cartridge you are changing the print head, so this means that after 12 months or so the print quality will still be as good as when it was brand new, my last two Canon printers lasted only approx 13-14 months, before I started having major print head problems, this would not have happened with an HP printer !”

HP Photosmart C3180 User Reviews

great product
“It’s a great printer, but the original setup was a bit confusing. It would have gotten a 5 if it weren’t for that. It prints great quality and the scanner works really well. I am definetly pleased with this purchase.” – by S. Finney

Great even after 11 months
“Home inkjet printers often work well right out of the box, but I decided to wait a while to write this review. I’ve had the HP 3180 printer for 11 months, and it still continues to be a strong warrior as a printer. I use the printer every day, and the quality has been consistent and excellent. “ – by Blue Shoes

All in One – Multifunction for Ubuntu Linux
“I was looking for a home all in one product to connect to Ubuntu.Linux computer. Checked the HP LP-LIP site for a list of supported devices and HP’s site to see which were currently offered and found this C3180 to appear to be the best match. So I bought the box – took it home and downloaded latest HP-LIP package. The software self installed very easily on Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 ! Both printing and scanning worked first time and seamlessly for all users configured on the PC.” – by Hamish Low

Great little printer and scanner combo
“I needed a small high quality color printer and scanner for my home office. I do graphic design, so I’m picky about the quality of prints and scans. This little product does the trick and at this price, it’s a steal. The build quality is much better than I expected. It’s much more rugged than I had thought it would be (hey I got it under $100, so my expectation wasn’t too high for build quality). It scans pretty quick, even for high resolution scans.” – by D. Truong

Wonderful all-in-one for the price
“The scanning feature is superb. I have produced scans of my artwork that are clear, crisp, and wonderfully detailed. The printing capability is even more versatile than the manual and Amazon description claim. For instance, I can use Arches watercolor paper to print images, giving them a textured appearance that is more painterly and interesting than an image printed on photo paper. The copying function is produces a clear, undistorted reproduction. Bottom line: this is a great all-in-one for under $100.” – by Holly A. Wagner

“I ordered this because we are full time RVer’s & needed the all-in-one. It has been really great. Extremely easy to set up when I need it & I am very impressed by the quality of the printed page.” – by D. Baggett

Nice little printer
“I was looking for a small, simple and inexpensive printer/copier for my mother to use and find this to be an excellent choice. It was very easy to set up and my mom just has to push one button to make her copies. For a non-tech aging mom, this is perfect. Takes up little room and so far, no jams. As for the ink, one can only expect that an inexpensive printer won’t offer much in the way of extensive printing. The cartridges are very small, but two cost the same as a larger cartridge. “ – by Jeannempolasky

“Other than that I love my printer, scanner, copier and it has done everything I needed it to do plus!! I love how you can plug in your cameras SD Card right into it and download your pictures to the computer. I have done so much work and creative things with this printer its crazy! So, I am sad to see it go, but I need a bigger capacity printer, scanner, copier for my Senior Class Projects.” “ – by M.Maynard
