What has happened to HP?

Summary: I've had HP printers since before Windows 3.1 and have had good reliable performance from them with reasonable ink costs and decent backup from HP - UNTIL NOW! Th C4380 has given me nothing but trouble since the first installation to my wireless network which includes Mac (10.4), Windows desktop and...
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: 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).
Summary: The C4380 printer may function effectively, but I must say I have NEVER had a printer which requires so many new cartridges - I barely change it and print 40 pages or such and it runs out of ink.
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.
I am taking it back - wifi on printer goes to sleep after a day.

Summary: This printer is the cheapest multifunction printer/scanner/copier on the market that has integrated Wifi. The integrated Wifi was my reason for buying the device, as I live in a small place and wanted to locate it in a cupboard using no wires.
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.
Excerpt: 2 eme HP meme soucis sur les deux. Cartouche absente ou pas conforme alors que bien compatible je vous l'assure mais pourquoi j'en ai repris une!! bon prix a l'achat mais quelle perte de temps et d'energie pour une impression autant mettre plus chere, et plus avoir ce truc sur le bureau!!!!!!
Excerpt: Je fais exception aux précédents avis : soit je n'ai vraiment pas eu de chance avec cet appareil, soit je ne sais pas... Il faut la configurer pour la relier au routeur dès la première installation et réactualiser le routeur (non précisé dans la notice). Ensuite, la fonction wi-fi ne marche jamais !
