  • Pros: It's a great paper weight.

Worse printer ever. GET A LIFE HP! Terrible. Waste of money.

  • Summary: Worst printer ever. If you try to use aftermarket ink cartridges, the machine will drive you nuts, at least that's what mine did. It got to a point where it would refuse to print a job unless I restarted it and after restart immediately print the job that I wanted to print. Nothing but problems, when it worked it printed nice, even with the generic cartridges, but boy did it put up a fuss if you kept generic cartridges in it.

"Worthless Piece of Junk"

  • Pros: None. Since the require me to write 10 characters, I'll say it again. None.
  • Cons: Bloated software. Terrible network connectivity. Disappears from network routinely and requires hours of my time to reconnect every 2-3 months. Shut down routine takes 4-5 minutes. It's shutting down! What in god's name do you need to do for 4-5 minutes t

"Horrible, do not buy"

c5180ishorrible, CNET
10 February 2010
  • Pros: Print quality is ok.
  • Cons: Scans are blotchy and very poor quality. The ink management system is insanely horrible. All cartridges come with enforced use by dates and printing without having them all refilled is disabled. Painful.

  • Pros: it prints & copies. fine.
  • Cons: scanning is such a pain - it doesn't always connect to the computer - so the image you have scanned can't be transferred to computer. it's slow. it doesn't do anything right.

"Do not buy this printer"

judygail, CNET
2 January 2009
  • Pros: I've been so frustrated for the past months trying to get it to work, I honestly can't remember what I ever liked about it.
  • Cons: I bought this printer 2 years ago. I didn't have any problems until the yellow ink ran out. I had bought a multi pack of ink and that was the last one to run out. I replaced it and that's the last time it's worked right.
