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: I dont know what it is with HP and their software,it is so intrusive! You have to be extremely careful when selecting installation options or you will spend the rest of your computing life being connected to HP sites to buy supplies, fill in surveys, register the product (which incidentley they seem...
Summary: This was printer number 7 in my household, having trawled through the usual useless heaps of rickety plastic that had been abandoned in frustration. I had given up on a printer of my own. But a wireless printer! I had to try it. So two years ago we invested in the C4380 and haven't looked back.
Summary: Having owned one of these PSCs for a while now, I thought I would share my experiences. Firstly, HP software is a nightmare... for goodness sake just install the bare minimum of things and don't let it have the free run of your hard drive.
