It prints, it scans - it gets the basic job done.

Excerpt: I bought this printer about two and a half years ago, and it continues to serve me well. I have not printed any photographs on it, even though it has that capability. I use it simply for printing documents. Once in a while, the printer will pick up a piece of paper and run it through cock-eyed or something, but it is usually fine. I have not had any problems with smearing, although just last week it did give me an ink fit. It was printing, I opened it up, and the ink...
Excerpt: This HP all in one printer is a great printer. The quality of the printing is excellent. Something I realized after I bought it was that it does not have a fax function, so therefore it is not literally an all in one. The copy function is also flawed as you have to copy one page at a time. Also, the scanner is very difficult to operate. That being said, the quality of print on all functions is excellent.
Excerpt: I have owned this product for about 2 years and I'm not impressed with it. I have owned other hp printers and this is my least favorite. I was excited to buy the all in one printer thinking that it would work good for pictures since it is a photosmart printer but I don't think it prints good quality pictures. Also, when tryig to print documents, it always feeds my paper in crooked. I have tried and tried to fix this problem but nothing has worked and the paper always...
It prints pictures well, but can be a little tough to find scans

Excerpt: I purchased this printer when my old on started eating all of my paper. I had a small photo printer that was also on the blink. I thought the four -in - one sounded like the perfect solution. I found that the printing quality on my papers was about the same as any other printer I have ever purchased. The photos turn out pretty good, but require you to switch the colored printer cartridge with one that contains more colors.
Excerpt: I picked up this computer as part of a promotional package with a Mac iBook. I wound up mostly keeping it on the shelf. It's quite easy to use, and prints quickly. It does a good job with documents, which is mostly what I use it for. The scanner works reasonably well for basic scanning and copying, although it obviously lacks the resolution to produce dense, high-quality images suitable for image manipulation.
HP Photosmart C4280 - good quality for the money-low cost ink.

Excerpt: For the most part, this has been a great printer / scanner / copier for me. The only problems I've had is printing business cards. Hard to set up cards right. You print the template, which comes out perfect, but when you print the cards, it doesn't line up properly. I've gone thru too much cards and ink to do this.
Pros: It is reliable in printing quality and scanning. Scan quality is not good enough for a photographer but perfectly fine for me.
Cons: I wish it would fax too. Printer ink is so darn expensive but 1 cartridge lasts almost a month if you print on ultra light otherwise new cartridge every two weeks. It will also NOT print unless the color cartridge is in with enough ink.
