Expert Reviews

HP Photosmart C6180 Reviews

PCAdvisor reviews the HP Photosmart C6180 and writes;
“Exclusive business users might find a laser printer more to their liking but, for a home office with a need to mix faxing and decent text output with a desire for eye-catching photographs, the C6180 is a decent option.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the HP Photosmart C6180 and writes;
“What the C6180 lacked in speed, it made up for in print quality. Text printed on inkjet paper was clean, dark, and sharp. The color graphics page displayed smooth color gradients, pleasing saturation, good handling of photo elements, and overall sharp detail… The 4×6 photo print on HP photo paper also impressed us: it showed sharp details and good skin tones, but could’ve been a bit brighter overall.”

User Opinions

HP Photosmart C6180 User Reviews

Amazed at how great this printer is
“I’ve had a few HP all-in-ones in the past and I have had mixed, at best, experiences. I bought this at an Apple store as part of a deal with my wife’s new MacBook Pro. Everything this printer promises it delivers extremely well. I’ve been using it as a wireless device. Absolutely no problem with the printer finding my airport wireless network. Photographs are beautiful. The card reader works great and the printer is smart enough to properly crop or expand the photo from an image that is not the proper proportion. I’ve had the AIO for about 8 weeks and I haven’t had to replace a cartridge yet, even with quite a lot of printing and copying. “ – by Kevin McCormick

Hands down, the best printer I’ve ever used
“I LOVE this printer! I ordered it online and received it about two weeks ago, and I’ve loved it since the moment I plugged it in. Its interface is extremely user-friendly (the LCD screen can preview pictures, lets you choose options, etc.), scanning and copying are quick, and it prints amazingly fast. I’ve been setting it to “economy black” printing, and it prints so fast pages literally shoot out the paper tray as they are printed. It’s as fast as a laser printer!The print quality is top-notch–I printed out some digital photos, and they are photo lab quality.” – by Jolene Karmann

Great printer — wireless printing, scanning, etc
“This printer is great! Individual ink cartridges, wireless G, multi-page scanning, faxing. Separate photo paper tray lets me print normal stuff and then pop out a photo every so often without having to go to the printer to change the paper! The quality of printing is great and the scanner lets you save the multi-page docs as a single PDF file. Exactly what I wanted to start getting rid of paper! “ – by Ron Wilder

HP 6180 All-In-One
“I was amazed at the wonderful quality of the printing and the photo printing part is out of this world. I could not get better prints if I had a lab in my house. The separate ink cartridges are a good thing to have, because you can purchase only the colors you need and not have to waste ink as you would in a cartridge that has multiple colors. Also, for photoprinting, it has two extra colors, red and blue that make the colors in the pictures come out absolutely perfect. This is a great machine and I would recommend it highly. “ – by Leda Blitstein

Excellent inexpensive
“Then in the store, next to 3130 I’ve seen a 6180 using same 02 cartridges and HAVING Automatic Document Feeder. That was the factor that pushed me into buying C6180. Installation was a breeze. Everything worked as advertised. After two weeks with 6180 I still like it very much. Ethernet connection allows for all functions of the unit to be accessed from the computer. You can send a fax from the unit or from the computer, or you may mix in one fax input from a computer and from the unit. Very cleaver…” – by Slawomir M. Popiel

So far so good
“First I printed a picture out of iPhoto, I had to wade through too many options and for some reason it came out on plain paper (a nice feature of this printer to note is that it has a tray specifically for photo paper). I took out the plain paper and it printed fine. The photo color came out better than the Canon, in my opinion. It looks like a real print from the photo lab (I should mention that I used matte paper for the Canon and glossy for the HP). I do wish HP would consider using the waterproof inks, but for my purposes this works fine. “ – by Dixie

Great Machine
“I have had this printer for just over a month. It is everything I hoped it would be when I purchased it to replace my ageing Officejet 710 All-In-One. All basic functions work great on my home network – Scan, Fax, Print, Photo Print, and Sheet Feeder. I like that it has 6 seperate color ink cartridges instead of 2 – it gets expensive when you replace a color cartridge when it runs out of one of it’s 3 colors. The memory slots work great on the printer – over the network they are unstable and crash, requiring a printer power cycle to recover. “ – by Timothy Price

Great, but Vista wireless drivers are terrible
“Finally, I decided to hook up the device via USB to a XP Home desktop. This worked fine – I was able to scan, print, etc. from the desktop (I have been doing this successfully for over 2 weeks now). I share the printer from the desktop, and am able to print from other machines. Not the best setup, but I am reasonably happy for now. The quality of scans, prints, photo prints are all very good…” – by R. Poddar

Could been 5 stars
“Just picked this up after being scared away by the reviews of the (more expensive) 7×10 series. So far, I have been extremely impressed. Very smooth setup, wireless is WONDERFUL (using on 3 PCs with 3 different OS), very nice print quality (with decent paper) very good (but not as good as my Kodak printer) photo printing…” – by J.
