Excerpt: This is nice. This is great. This is awesome! I got this printer with about £60 off the original price by buying it with an iMac, and have loved it since. This printer looks great anywhere in the house (and i say anywhere as this printer can be used wireless).
Pros: Easy to use, Wireless, Simple .
Cons: Price of Cartridges is a small problem but could be overlooked .
Excerpt: I've had this printer for 3 months now (after my last HP finally decided to wheeze it's last) and I am rather impressed by it. I'm going to do this review by different tasks you can use it for :) Simple B&W printing: This printer excels at quickly printing what seems like reams of my research and...
Summary: Plus point to start with: its Mac software is completely compatible, integrated, and does what it should. For this reason I would buy another HP device: it is a much better experience than my last Epson.
Summary: As a HP customer (as far as printers go) for over 15 years, it was HP I turned to for a new Wi-Fi printer. Bought the HP4380 and found it easy-ish to set up wirelessly (very easy for main PC, slightly awkward for others in house).
Excerpt: Looks great value with an impressive technical portfolio at the price. But it is bloated with a dumptruck full of buggy software. It's a printer/scanner with delusions of being as important as an operating system.
Pros: Impressive tech spec
Cons: Bloated software, more attention to bells and whistles than basics

Summary: Ive read all the reviews on amazon before purchasing this printer and im glad I ignored the majority of them. Pc World are doing this for 79.99 at the mo however I got this for 68.95 inc delivery from pixmania.
Summary: Buy it only if you are a IT pro. For the common man there are so many installation problems that it is not worth buying. Most of the printers are plug and play these days, unfortunately C4380 is not one of them.
Summary: I bought this antagonistic printer because of its Wi-Fi facility but now after a succession of problems am on the verge of cutting my losses and buying a cheaper, less ambitious model. As previous reviewers have stated, the software takes a long time to download.
Summary: Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found this product very simple to install. My only gripe is the time it takes to load all the software. I installed this machine on my main PC via the ethernet and on my laptop via the wireless network,the combined tasks taking just under an hour!
