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.
Summary: I purchased this printer directly from HP in February 2009. On one occasion I had to call HP Total Care for assistance in activating the Blue Tooth feature. After spending almost two hours on the phone speaking with a tech somewhere in the east, and being put on hold more than once as the tech...
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.
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.
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.
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.
