Summary: I have owned the HP C5180 for about three years. I am finally replacing it because, in the past month, "Ink System Failure" messages are becoming so frequent that I can barely use it anymore. My main use of this printer has been for black document/e-mail printing.
Summary: Comments about HP Photosmart C5180 Multifunction Printer: I love this printer and the design. It’s great for the money and works surprisingly well! We have 3 three at the office and now getting one for the home.
Pros: Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Great Print Quality
Summary: I purshased this printer because I needed better quality black printing, as I do a lot of black & white graphics.In this respect it works just fine for non professional work. Also In this respect I need to move up to a laser, which brings me to my main complaint.
Summary: This all-in-one produces great quality color prints and is ok as a manual copier, but the Windows software that attempts to run it is just awful. I don't know how HP could release software this bad!
Summary: this is a fine all-in-one but it is not totally compatible with vista. when i loaded the software i got a critical error and it didn't load the affected part. you can't save photos on a memory card to the computer. i tried to find a fix for this but didn't.
Summary: I have owned my C5180 for about a year now. I didnt do any research before i bought this...I needed a printer quickly. So here is my impression: Photos: I like that I can take the SD card from my camera and print right from it. The picture quality is actually quite good. Almost as good as the store.
