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: That sums it up, easy to install, you get on screen menus and prompts, use must disable the diagnostic search though as it slows your start up by minutes, there is a guide on the reviews to how to do this.
Summary: My previous HP All-In-One stopped working after 3 years or more faithful service. I had just bought several cartridges for it and found this printer, although superseded by other models, used the same cartridges. I was fortunate to find this printer and hope it will last as long as my previous one. It fits nicely on a shelf above my desk and the transition from my previous printer was totally painless.
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.
Summary: This HP printer which I had nearly 2 years ago works fine, prints a bit slowly but I dont have much to print its only for my house need but i still love this product which has Photocopy and scanner overall a decent product from HP.
Fine ...until cartridges needed changing, then never the same again

Summary: This product was fine for 1st year. I then needed to change cartridges. From then on it has never been satisfactory, always claiming something not right (not enough ink, cartridges not aligned, then ok, then not ok etc etc). You get what youi pay for and this product, in spite of being looked after, became unable to do basic tasks after a year .. funny that?!
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
