Not all I thought it would be

  • Excerpt: I got a good deal on this printer when I bought my laptop several years ago and have been using it ever since.  It prints quickly and when it wants to prints good quality images. I find that after printing for awhile the black cartridge gets 'dirty' and starts to smear the ink.  If I take it out and clear it with a little rubbing alcohol the quality improves again,  but not ideal.

Not the best printer I've ever had!

  • Excerpt: I've owned and used about twenty different printers in my life and this one is definitely not my favorite. I have difficulty printing on specialty papers (like birthday party invitations) and the color quality isn't the best. For the price though, I guess it's not that bad.

good quality low price

  • Excerpt: The unit networked well with our wireless network. It makes great copies and scans well. My only complaint is that it will not accept recycled ink cartridges. Well worth the $75 we spent for it.I would prefer a unit that we could manually override settings.  This one doesn't allow that.

HPC3180 Printer not too bad.

  • Excerpt: I received this printer from my in-laws for Christmas one year. I really wanted a printer that would copy and print and easily print pictures.  I have to say it prints and copies with ease, the printing pictures however leaves a bit to be desired.  It took me a long time to figure out how to print picture the size I wanted them.  The picture quality is not great even when you have it on the highest setting.

Satisfied with price and performance

  • Excerpt: Install:  Everything was fine until after the program asked to connect to the USB cable.  It detected the device, but after 15 minutes of waiting for the install to finish, I decided to start over because it was apparent that the install was frozen up, even though task manager said it was running.

Pretty decent printer

  • Excerpt: I could get a free printer with the purchase of my mac and I chose this one because it was the cheapest option I had. What do I say, for a free printer it worked well, I am happy I didn't have to pay 100 bucks for it. It did have some good things like it was compact and could be easily stowed away when not in use. It was white so it did go well with my mac products but on the other hand it did get dirty and collect a lot of dust so that was a major turn off.

Basic Printer for Anyone

  • Excerpt: I've had this printer for approximately 2-3 years. I must say it almost broke a couple times already, but I was able to fix it. I mostly only print documents that are school related. Few pictures here and there. Pros: Prints quite fast. Fast to power up and use. When your done simply turn it off. The printer is detected on your computer pretty fast too. The quality of prints are good. Not really a photo printer, but photos that come out looks good too.

HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, and Copier

Sky Leach, Rate it all!
17 May 2011
  • Summary: all-in-one and portable = great cash-cow for HP = terrible The best things about this printer are (pros): 1.) It prints fairly quickly for an inkjet on everyday settings 2.) prints look clean and don't smudge (if you choose the right settings) 3.) It's light and folds up into a neat little package for people who need to take printers with them.

"Very good printer , but it jams using Photo paper"

Cruizen, CNET
6 January 2009
  • Pros: Excellant and easy to use the printer and scanner features
  • Cons: This Printer goes thru ink quicker then my previous Epson and it is worthless when using Printer Paper, jammed up first time I used it. Printer is only two years old and unable to print using the Photo Paper
