  • Summary: Great when it worked. I bought two of them and neither lasted very long. I would not recommend any HP printers at this point. The last three were dogs.

  • Summary: What a piece of junk. Eats ink like a hungry hobo. Sounds like it's birthing a very large baby. Lasted one year. Don't take it if someone gives it to you.

Forget it !!!

  • Summary: I mainly bought this to scan & send to file or print ... especially old pictures. Either I have a lemon or this is beyond figuring out. One in ten times I actually get it to scan. The rest of the time it does a bunch of odd blinking & freezes up. I then have to shut down my machine.

Run away from this printer!

  • Summary: I have an old HP 990 that still runs like a dream so I was hoping my new Photosmart C5580 would be even slicker. Bad idea. It was a nightmare from day one. The paper jammed all the time. Then the printer would stall and seem to go into Neverneverland, where it was totally unresponsive.

Awful!!!! Don't Buy

  • Summary: I have never had so many problems with a printer before in my life. This printer requires you to go out and purchase in addition to the printer a usb cord and a bluetooth wireless adapter. For some reason HP does not provide them in the box. This items are necessary to print and scan.

Hard to believe

  • Summary: What a mess this printer is to set up. Like the previous reviewer I had to install and uninstall the software for several hours, and spend several more googling patches to the problem. "Fatal error during installation" pops up during install - and never goes away.

Oh my goodness.....

  • Summary: Let me first start out by saying that this is not my first time to add hardware to a computer. I've added audio cards, power supplies, fans, video capture cards, loaded all sorts of software, added scanners and printers, etc. many times over.
