Review of HP DeskJet F4480 All-in-One Inkjet Printer
31 January 2010
Summary: I’ve taken a look at a few printers here on TestFreaks, but most of them have been more on the expensive side so I thought I’d take a look at one that’s very inexpensive. Geeks.com has sent me over the HP DeskJet F4480 for review and it costs about $53, not including shipping. The F4480 is considered an all-in-one printer as it can scan, copy and print for you, but there’s no fax so to me it’s not really an all-in-one.
Pros: Inexpensive, Easy to use, Small and looks nice, Quiet
Cons: Photo quality is lacking, Expensive ink -Cartridges cost more than printer does, No USB cable included
Excerpt: It can be used to print, scan and photocopy, but the HP Deskjet F4480 only performs text printing with aplomb. It's a loud and has a small paper handling capacity. It is suited to users who only have to print every so often.
An HP multifunction device for users with minimal print needs

Summary: HP's Deskjet F4480 multifunction inkjet printer is about as basic as a multifunction device can get. It can be used to print, scan and photocopy, but it only performs text printing with aplomb. It's a loud and has a small paper handling capacity. It is suited to users who only have to print every so often.
Pros: Simple to use, low initial cost, reasonable running cost when using XL cartridges, good text quality
Cons: Loud, poor scan quality, poor quality photo prints, cartridge replacement can be awkward, no PictBridge or memory card reader
