HP Photosmart C4180 Reviews

Techradar reviews the HP Photosmart C4180 and writes;
“Generally, we’ve found HPs print superb text and photos, but the C4180 output was quite dark and, even using the optional photo cartridge, we found that yellow appeared quite orange, while text output wasn’t as sharp and clear as we would expect. If your needs are quite restricted, you won’t mind the quality of the C4180.”

HP Photosmart C4180 User Reviews

Good printer – Great Scanner/Copier
“I am an admitted HP loyalist. I did purchase an Epson to see what the fuss was about. Ended up donating it to Salvation Army less than a year. This C4180 replaced it. I like the fact that only two cartridges are needed. I never purchase the photo version toner. Plain color works just fine. Puzzled by some of the negative reviews. I hooked mine up to a Mac G5 and also loaded the software. Print jobs look fine. Photos are terrific. Copies for routine household chores (report cards/articles)are very clear. But the real pleasure is the scanner.” – by Trojan LRey

Satisfied customer
“Extremely easy to install the software. CDs are included to install on both a PC and Mac. We love having a scanner and copier as well as a printer. Very satisfied with all functions. Have not tried the photo printer yet but expect great results. Our daughter has a matching unit and is very satisfied as well.” – by B. Kelly

HP All in One
“I looked for a while for something affordable but good. I picked this one based on reviews. I like this printer. It is fast and does a good job. The only thing I don’t like is that it it sounds like a cheap printer as it makes noise when it prints (like the plastic shakes), but otherwise for the money, it is excellent. It was easy to set up also.” – by M. Bainter

high quality, affordable
“This printer arrived with a prepaid shipping label so that I would not have to incur charges in mailing my own printer back to them as a return. I have been very satisfied with that C4180, and friends and family members are amazed at the quality with which photos print. Although yes, I did have some problems with my original C4180, I am giving this product five stars for the affordability, quality, and excellent customer service HP provides for their customers.” – by Beth L.

Great All in One (Price, Quality, Value)
“I was looking for a good quality mid-level ink-jet all in one and compared many different products: Lexmark, Epson, Canon, and HP. I picked the HP because it offered high, near photo quality printing with good, simple and fairly quick scanning/copying, and in an acceptable size. I really liked the display screen and the full size flatbed scanner (vs. just sheetfeed) although I would have liked both for multiple document scanning/copying. I’ve printed about 50 pages so far (ranging from simple word documents to full color flyers) and the included starter ink is still showing close to full. Overall great value.” – by J. D. Armstrong

Great price, great prints, very happy
“I like this AIO because it is a smaller profile model, so takes up very little room on an already small desk. The photos come out better than I imagined, copier and scanner all completely ROCK! VERY easy to use, everything is very explanatory. Great for your basic needs and then some. AND THE PRICE IS RIGHT!” – by V. R. VonGunten

Perfect Picture Printer /Scanner & Copier
“Love this printer ! I have owned several different HP All in one printers and hands down this is the easiest one thus far! The photo prints are picture perfect! I honestly had no problem installing. Love the tray that stores neatly on the side of the printer and holds digital photo paper – Nice size does not take up entire desk for the small home office – you won’t be dissapointed.” – by Book Girl

Decent print quality and functionality
“After looking at a friend’s HP F380, I decided to get an all-in one printer, but wanted one that had a better duty cycle, so I ended up buying the C4180. It was a replacement for my HP 3820 USB printer, which had died a couple years back after owning it for barely a year and never printed that good to begin with. This is a much more reliable unit and follows the HP tradition of quality a lot better. Print quality is pretty good, and it can scan/copy without having the computer on. Nice feature when one is in a bit of a hurry – This printer worked really good right from the start.” – by Sui

Great Printer
“I hooked this printer up to an HP desktop that runs on Vista software. Instalation was easy. I just plugged the USB cable in and the Computer did all the proper installations by itself. Ive had this printer for about 6 months and really have no complaint. It is fast, quiet and very reliable in all its functions. “ – by G. Ramirez
