Summary: After my reliable HP930C and 27,000 copies later died in a stupid accident I decided to go with an all-in-one. As I was very happy with HP I decided to go for this 5180C. All I got was frustration.
Summary: Pros: Good print quality Cons: Slow scan speed, not great scan quality. Internet connection would fail every day and require restarting the printer by unplugging it. Stopped turning on after 2 years - granted that's not short, but I expect my printer to last more than two years.
Summary: WARNING: CHECK THE FORUMS AND GOOGLE (or your preferred search engine) !! There are a ton of complaints out there about the Black ink printing stopping, and there seems to be NO fix (unless the head needs cleaning . . . but that is almost never the problem).
Summary: This was a good printer...while it worked. I've had it for some time but it got very little use. In the last week I got an error code that it could not recover from. I searched the web and found a couple of suggested fixes...but none worked.
Summary: Made in Malaysia. Bad issues with ink. When any one of the six (1 black, 5 colors) individual ink cartridges ran out of ink or was date stamped expired, the machine would not continue to function. I had to replace the cartridge. If I only wanted to use the black ink by itself, it would not work.
Summary: had this for 1.5 yrs. used it like 7 times. now gettin error message that has to be serviced by hp, etc. Junk, now stuck with brand new ink b/c print head error so i'm thinking low ink, etc. bringing it to the desert and shoot it to pieces.

Summary: I've had this printer for over a year now. I was relatively satisfied at first, but became more and more frustrated with it as time went on. Installing drivers and software was inexplicably slow. It wasn't complicated, really, it just took forever.
Summary: If only it would use all the ink that came with a cartridge! The most annoying feature of this printer is that it requires you to replace an ink cartridge before that cartridge is actually out of ink - the image quality does not deteriorate at all before the printer forces you to replace the...
