I hate this HP Photosmart C4280'

autumnspamstuff, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I cannot stand this HP Photosmart C4280. Thankfully it came FREE with the purchase of my desktop. I have installed the drivers several different times but it still does not recognize them. The scanner stopped working months ago, but every-time I go on-line to fix it all they have to say it "multiple drivers will cause the scanner to malfunction." I'm uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers several times, but nothing seems to work.

Buyer Beware, HP Doesn't Care!!!

  • Excerpt: Print 10 pages, printer quits, clean contacts and try again.  Print 3 pages printer quits, cleancontacts AGAIN and retry.....and AGAIN.....and AGAIN.  This is the third straight printer of this molel that has been a piece of junk!  I GIVE UP because HP clearly has NO intention of solving what is clearly a DESIGN FLAW aimed solely at making them more money.  I am sick to death of begging HP for a solution and getting told everything's my fault.

"Don't waste your money! This is horrible!"

Veggiegardenfan, CNET
1 March 2012
  • Pros: Pros? Well, the printer does work sometimes. The scanner/copier works -- at least for now.
  • Cons: It's been nothing but infuriating trouble -- which of course started almost the second after the three-month warranty ran out. It's full of glitches that make you want to tear your hair out. It's beyond horrible.

  • Pros: Feed it single sheets of paper and it will print.
  • Cons: I challenge you to buy this printer and print or scan without it chewing through 15 pages, jamming and/or crashing. Truly awful
