Excerpt: I really like my HP Photosmart C5580 All-in-one printer! Prints great. The photos come out really good. The memory card slots and USB port make it really easy to print photos directly from my camera. With the purchase of particular CD/DVD roms, you can print your label directly onto the disc. I haven't yet tried this feature yet, but I am looking forward to trying it. You can also scan with this printer and make both black or color copies. The one drawback is...
Excerpt: If you don't need a fax then this is the printer for you. The HP photosmart C5580 gave me an issue within 3 weeks of buying it, but the customer service on it was quick and I was shipped another one in two weeks. I've yet to have a problem with it since. My favorite feature is the fact that it scans so quickly and clearly, and also has photo printing capabilities that work great with many options.
An good multifunction device, but could have used 109 cartrages.

Excerpt: This device is probably the best printer I've had in a long time. My biggest surprise was the fact that it worked immediate upon plugin on my Linux distro (Ubuntu) without any real effort (I had to install the utility and driver package for modern HP printers, then plug it in.) The print quality is equal or better in Linux when compared to Windows.
HP Photosmart C5580 produces quality images at a good price.

Excerpt: If you don't need a fax, and I don't, this produces good images for everyday use. The buttons used to switch between functions are easy to understand, and pages print quickly, especially in black and white.

Excerpt: I love hp printers and this one is a great one also. It prints,scans, and copies fast. The only negative thing about this printer is if you're planning on printing pictures off it it, expect to buy alot of ink cartridges for it. The pictures come out awesome, but the cartridges get drained fast and it gets expensive to buy ink cartridges quite often.
Excerpt: I really, really, really love my Hewlitt Packard Photosmart C5580 color printer. It is really user friendly. It prints really good photos. It does color photos and black and white photos as well. It prints every standard size photo there is, like, 5x7, 8x10, 4x6, 2x3, and other sizes too. The quaility is really good when you use photo ink and photo paper.
Summary: I agree with others that the hp software sucks, but you can let windows install drivers so you don't have to deal with it. Or uninstall the unwanted software. Functionality wise I haven't had any issues, and I've had the printer for two years now. I use the sd card slot a lot and like being able to print pictures or documents off that.
Summary: My last printer was an HP and it lasted a long time with no problems. I've only had this one a short time, but the set-up was easy and it seems to work great so far. I can't address the reliability issue yet, but based on the last one, I'm hoping it will be great.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality
Summary: Pros: Very good printer. Print quality is good and the ink cartridges are reasonably priced. Cons: The paper tray sticks out too much and if you bump into it you will break the paper feeder(this happened to me before with another similar model). Bluetooth was impossible to install.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Reliable
