Excerpt: Unfortunately, the ‘one-touch’ scanning button on the printing unit directs the user to HP Photosmart, making scanning a roundabout affair. Overall, I would say that this HP model should be skipped over for the frequent printer. If you scan more than you print, definitely buy this model. The F2280 was cheaper than every single scanner at the store I visited - and that was without HP’s Christmas offer of $20 cash back!
Summary: I have had this printer for a few years now and it has never failed. Having had other printers in the past and getting no end of paper jamming and faulty cartridges, the HP Deskjet has been a welcome change. It was really easy to set up, it prints quickly and neatly, and doesn't eat up ink like there is no tomorrow.
Pros: Easy to use, good scanner/photocopier, always prints well
Summary: Technology wise, I am not the best. I do love technology and am always looking out foe new updates etc, but in terms of managing any technological items, I am a disaster. Previously I've had three printers which were in a nutshell...useless! I have no luck with printers, computers and phones, among others.
HP Deskjet F2280 All-in-One: Reasonable printer for the price!
7 December 2010
Summary: Again another purchase of mine back in January 2009 when I was turning the spare bedroom into my home office for my new job. I did not do any shopping around despite having the whole of the Christmas break to get organised (there was far too much football to watch and Stella to be drunk for that). I picked up the HP Deskjet F2280 All In One when doing the weekly grocery run at Tesco's.
Pros: Good Printing and Scanning functionality
Cons: Photocopier not good, did not last very long
Summary: I first bought this printer because I wanted something simple and practical that I could use at home for basic office needs, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on something that I would only use now and then. With these as my needs, this has been a good buy overall, although it does sometimes feel like a slightly cheaper printer. It has multiple functions - it can scan, and print, and it can also make photocopies using the two previous parts together.

Summary: A while back my printer at work had to be replaced so my boss decided to get me a HP Deskjet F2280 Printer which also has scanner and photo-copier capability. When I first saw the printer I was quite shocked at how big and bulky it was which I suppose it has to be quite big to have all those functions. I had never used a scanner before and thought it would be really difficult but once I had a go I found it really simple to do.
Pros: Quick at Printing and easy to use
Cons: Cartridge Change is a bit drawn out and can sometime jam when printing
