Excerpt: its a printer that prints in pure black and white instead of grayscale, which was wasting alot of ink in my old printer, which is saving me tons of money. also the color printing is very bold and vibrant, the printer is quite quiet and very easy to set up, there is also a on screen error monitor to let you know of errors with the printer and how to fix these issues.
Excerpt: So it works pretty well but has a few draw backs. Drawbacks first: 3.The software it comes with and i loaded on my computer can be very annoying. It pops up an ink low message like eight-teen times a day. GEts prettuy annoying after a while. However, overall I like. Scans fast. Copies fast. Prints pretty fast and sort of quietly. Cannot be perfect in everyway but I paid like 30 bucks for it can can't complain.
The ink is too expensive and that's always the case

Excerpt: Who can afford a printer anymore? Actually, printers you can come by very cheap but it's the ink I can't afford. Honestly it's cheaper to buy a new printer every time you run out of ink. This is a decent printer. I never used all of the features on it but the scanner works very efficiently and I've never had a problem using it as I have had problems on other all in one printers. Printing quality could be better.
Good solid printer but not great if you print a lot

Excerpt: I use this printer mostly for printing off coupons and recipes and while I like the printer for what I use it for it suits my needs just fine I seem to go through a lot of ink. This printer is very reasonably priced especially considering it copies and scans but I think they make up their money and then some through the cost of their ink.
THe HP F4480 all in one printer works out great for my family.

Excerpt: I'm writing about the Hewlett Packard F4480 All in One Inkjet Printer. We just recently perchased a new Hwelett Packard Computer and wanted a printer to go with it. We chose the Hewlett Packard All in One inkjet because it had all the features that we were looking for in a printer. We were able to hook it up with ease and tie in right into our new computer without any problems. This priner lets us do copies, scan pictures or documents easily.
Summary: I've had this printer for getting close to 2 years now, and after moderate use, it still works just the same as it did in the beginning. It's a basic printer, and that's what you get--a plain old printer and an OK scanner. Good: +Keeps trucking along +Cheap Bad: -HP drivers are a pain...then again a lot of printers have horrible software packages so this isn't necessarily a complaint unique to the F4480 -Scanner is not great.
Summary: Although the print quality is fine and it does offer a scanning function, this machine drinks ink like there's no tomorrow. I've started recording on my calendar every time I have to change cartridges, and I'm doing it every 2-3 weeks - and I'm not doing an excessive amount of printing. I've tried Office Depot's remanufactured cartridges twice in this machine, and each time it refused to recognize the cartridge and wouldn't print.
Summary: I have owned this printer for over a year, and as the title suggest I have been mostly satisfied. PROS - Scans well, at high resolution - When it has ink, it prints - Copy function is handy - Easy to operate CONS - Chomps through ink like no other printer I have owned - Frequently needs to be shut off and turned on - Sometimes ceases communication with all three of my computers - Photo quality is sub-standard OVERALL Should you buy this printer in 2012? Absolutely not.
Summary: I bought an HP All In One because I previously had one (psc1209) that lasted me all through college and then some. Also through umptine moves throughout those years. Well last year it finally kicked the bucket. So I bought this has a replacement. Worked great for the first few months, printing pictures with ease, etc. Well now I cant even print one page without it jamming.
Summary: This Hp F4480 printer arrived very quickly! Although it was listed as new it was packaged poorly in the original box ( Taped up Poorly) . When I removed the printer from this box a plastic piece fell on the floor. The ink cartridges were used and the color cartridge had ink leaking out of it. I replaced the cartridges and the printer works okay.
