Summary: purchased similar model new, then discovered that Staples wouldn't take back ink cartridges, even unopened in original packaging. So I purchased this model used online hoping it would work for a while. Still printing after several years!
Summary: I had a printer just like it, and didn't want to change. I found this one and purchased it and then wondered if I did the right thing. It has been great. Works better than I could have imagined. I am so happy I purchased it.
Summary: Works like it should it prints have not used it for all the capabilities it has just currently on white plain paper. Will be testing it for photo's soon. Will be using it for product photo and sign making.
Summary: Yes I had a C5580 All-in-One and it recently quit working so I had to replace it. This printer has the same most important feature that I was after an that was the print directly to CD, not to mention it also prints studio quality photos. I was fortunate to find this one on here because there wasn't a whole lot of them with this feature on here.
Summary: I have worked as a professional Graphic Designer since 1991. Throughout those twenty-one years, I have worked for Corporations large (Macy*s), medium-sized (Exodus Communications) and small (Createteria). I have used countless printers, from large-format Fiery to little desktop Epson models. This specific printer - the HP C5280 - is far and away the best printer I have ever had the pleasure of installing drivers for. I use it daily and it has never let me down.
Very good printer. We recommend it to anyone good printing to be done.

Summary: This is a very good printer even though it is not the newest model on the market. It is basically used for very high quality prints, e.g. texts with illustrations, paintings' reproductions, images generated in Illustrator, Photoshop, and other programs. We cannot compare this printer to any other printer because from the very beginning of our project we were using the same model.
