Expensive to use

Julie Dailey, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: While the printer is good as a multipurpose office item, the cost of the cartridges is very high and they don't last long at all. I was spoiled by my laserjet. I won't buy one of these again as HP overcharges for the ink you need to use it. Not a good purchase on my part

Good print quality, easy, aggravating paper feed issues

J. Egner, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: This printer couldn't be easier to set up and use and the print quality is good. However, I echo frustrations others here have had with the paper feed. It frequently feeds more than one sheet, which wastes paper and time as you have to print over and over until the thing gets it right.

Okay for Pictures

Kindle Customer, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: This system is for pictures...it does not do a good job of scanning documents to your computer and sending them as an attachment. It has limited use and there are far better document printers out there in the market. However, it seems mediocre for pictures which should be its speciality.

Nice features but labor intensive to print anything.

AT, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: This printer is nice and has lots of features but I am constantly trying to clear carriage jams and mis fed paper to get it to print. We use the printer about once a week to just print a few pages. I often need to play with the printer for about 5 or 10 minutes just to get it to print a few pages.

Does a good job when it works

Patrick Tyrrell, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: I have owned this printer for about two years. It's "draft mode" prints very quickly, its "high quality mode" creats great looking documents but if I ever try to print more than 25 pages in one sitting it jams up.

If you love "Carriage Jam", this is the printer for you.

JMM, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: Third HP printer we've owned. First one was an old model, and it was passable as a color inkjet printer. The second one, a 550, printed well enough, but for some strange reason the printer driver and setup page would always revert to Spanish, no matter how many times we reinstalled.

Ok in the beginning....but after a year it jams on photo paper

Julie A. Skinner, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: I have to say I had been pretty happy with this printer. I used it for the past two years pretty heavy while working on my Master's Degree, however, now it continues to jam with any type of cardstock or photo paper. Just a warning to anyone who may wish to print with heavier paper types..

Works great after a year BUT!!!!!!!!

envchemist, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: This is a nice printer. I have had it since Dec 2006. It scans well and prints well. The pictures that I have printed are great--especially using HP paper. So why do I rate this as a 2 star? Because of the ink cartridge. They are less expensive.

Disappointed in C4180

Sharon Langer, Amazon
19 July 2008
  • Summary: This printer was part of a package deal with a Compaq Presario that I purchased two years ago. When I got it home, there was no CD for installing it with Vista. After many calls to unknown geographical areas, they finally consented to sending me the disc.
