Scanning does not work with Vista!

Scott F., Newegg
29 August 2007
  • Summary: I really wanted this printer to work, I really did, and spent easily 15 hours -- eight or so with HP tech support -- and did many installs/uninstalls, but scanning crashes on Vista every time.
  • Pros: Slick looking machine, fast for an inkjet, no problems with XP or Ubuntu, built-in Ethernet connection, nice combination of (putative) features.
  • Cons: Scanning does not work with Vista! Product is supposedly Vista-certified, but scanning through the bundled HP apps or as a TWAIN device in, say, Photoshop crashes every time with an hpqscnvw error. Scanned image quality is relatively poor -- can't get rid of Moire or screening artifacts.

c5180 printer review

S. Balke, Amazon

Nice All In One, Awful Software

JMP100, Amazon
13 February 2007
  • Summary: Overall all in one works fine. excellent print quality. print and scanner is noisy. Scan quality is a bit less quality than my old epson. My beef is with the software, a real memory hog that took 40 to 50 minutes to install on our pc and laptop that are not really that outdated.

Great Mac software. Beautiful photo prints. So-So scanner.

Navarro Parker, Amazon
13 February 2007
  • Summary: The C5180 is like most all-in-ones -- it saves a lot of desk space, but can't do everything equally well. It's best used as a home copier and printer. As a scanner, it's only average. Using HP's new inexpensive 6 color "02" ink, it produces gorgeous photo prints when you use photo inkjet paper.

as expected for HP

  • Summary: Nice photo printer, but I'm not excited about the all-in-one. I'd consider the all-in-one features to be entry level. Nice printer overall. Not intended for heavy use.

Great hardware, abysmal software

William H. Rathbun, Amazon

  • 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!
