Summary: The HP Deskjet F4280 is okay for printing, however the quality of the copier/scanner is absolutely terrible. If it works at all the scans are poor. If you are looking for a good cheap printer, this one is just fine. However if you ever plan to use the copy or scan function I would look elsewhere.
Summary: I've seen a lot of reviews where users say it won't work with Vista, but I have Vista and it works fine. The only problem I have with it is the ink. Depending on where you buy them, the cartridges range from $14 to $20 and they don't last very long.
Summary: Installation of the HP 4280 is simple, even if you are installing it on a new computer and lost the installation CD. HP's support website has all the downloads to insert the most up-to-date upgrades to the software. It is compatible with PC or Mac, but don't forget to buy a USB cable too.
Summary: Upgraded to Snow Leopard. The All-In-One is no more. The scanner does not work. I'm sure this will get fixed eventually, but if you're looking to scan out of the box...well you just can't with 10.6.
Summary: Would not connect to my computer. After 5+ contacts with HP. and several hours of work, someone finally told me to use a different driver for another printer. I still get a message that my computer still has found a new printer (the original).
Summary: The F4280 All-in-one is adequate for the home office that isn't going to do a lot of printouts. The scanning is slow but the results are good. The downside to this particular model is that it's very hard to insert the cartridges.
Summary: This All-in-One (AiO) was purchased for several reasons, the main one was compatibility with Windows Vista. All was fine for a short period until scanning in greyscale was attempted. There is a bug in the hp scanning software.
Summary: It was an okay printer. It worked for a couple of months and then it would say there was no ink in the cartridge (with new ink cartridge!). So I only used it for the scanner. It works fine as a scanner but it is a pretty slow one. I gave up after a while.
Summary: Somehow it got broken, it couldn't be fixed anywhere, but suddenly after a while it started working again (i had already bought an epson to replace it) so i'm not sure if i'd actually recommend it, i do remember hating the fact that ink didn't last enough, and here in my country is not easy to find...
Good+, especially considering the price but a little slow in some functions

Summary: I had a nice little HP C4100-series printer for about 2 or 3 years that I decided to pass on to another family member when I got a new computer. I miss it a lot! But I am getting used to this one.
