Excerpt: I bought this printer a while back during school. I got lucky with the price because wal-mart had it on sale for some unknown reason. However the best part of this printer is the wireless connectivity. You can set your printer up anywhere in the house and print from your bed on days where you feel completely lazy, which is a big upper for me.
Excerpt: I have had my Hewlett Packard Photosmart All-In-One InkJet Printer for about 2 years. It's fabulous! it was really easy to set up, all it takes is plugging in, basically, and then connecting to your computer. What is stupid is that my printer didn't come with a USB cable to connect it to my computer (I just remembered that now.) . super annoying, I had to make a special trip out just to get a USB cable. luckily it wasn't expensive.
Excerpt: I purchased the HP all in one and just love it. I love the copying feature and also the photo I print are unbelievable. No more waiting line at Walmart to print photos. Also long ink life in the cartridges is a real plus. Love this machine.
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. Set up is a bit of a faff, there's no getting away from that. In order to complete the initial set up you have to connect it via the usb cable.
Hey Ho! Let's Go! and tell everyone how good this is...

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). I use this printer wired as I don't really want it far from my computer, but you could have it anywhere in your house. The Photosmart printer is very easy to use, it tells you everything ...
Pros: Easy to use, Wireless, Simple .
Cons: Price of Cartridges is a small problem but could be overlooked .
Summary: Up Side: I had to replace an HP All in One and since the family have moved to Acer Notebooks the wireless printer idea was the way to go. Research showed this to be the best option, and it turned out the most inexpensive. It's plug and play with a USB, worked immediately, then set up wireless option. Can't see where the problem came from with others, worked as the easy set up guide explained (and that's in pictures!
Summary: I use this printer on my home network. I have two Macs and two PCs, one of which is hard wired to the printer and the others connect wirelessly. Easy to set up if you follow the instructions. I had one failed install on a PC that only indicated the error after running for over to hours! Installed fine the second time around. If you do need to uninstall, do so from the programme, not the windows uninstall programmes utility (takes ages if you do).
Excellent printer, installation can be tricky for 1st timers

Summary: First of all, I'd like to start by saying that HP has been always on the top list for build quality of their products (printers and scanners, more specifically) and only a few times have let me down when it came to support. I've worked for many years as an IT technician and had my fair share of "printers from hell" so on a scale from 1 (easy peasy) to 10 (call McGwiver) in difficulty I'd rate this all-in-one a solid 3.
Summary: This truly is a very neat, slick printer / copier / scanner. Having studied the reviews of similar wireless printers and the problems people experience with the wireless setup, I feared the worst. Fortunately the installation was a doddle. It does take quite a while for all the drivers and software to install, but that's hardly a problem.

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. Im hopeless with computers however I got mine up and running no probs on my main pc using usb and my laptop using wireless.
