Summary: I've had the HP C6180 for about a year - it had been nothing but trouble. It SUCKS ink and the cartridges are expensive. There are six ink cartridges - if any one of the six are low or empty and really when isn't that the case, you have all kinds of trouble trying to print.
Summary: After researching all the models carefully I picked the C6180 for its particular combination of features. After setting it up and running tests for a couple of days, I'm packing it up and sending it back.
Good print quality, but cheap hardware and crappy software.

Summary: Decent print quality, but the sheet feeder broke after the second time using it, and the software is absolutely awful. The memory leaks every time you print something, the UI could use much improvement, cannot colour scan at 600 dpi or above (although they claim 1200 dpi).
Summary: My mother just got this printer a couple of months ago and we're shopping for a replacement for her already. It jams all the time, won't print on card stock, and the scan function will not work locally at all. We can get it to scan by going to the HP web site and using their online software only.
Summary: Printing at home is a hassle with every printer. No exception here. It's nearly impossible to print to this thing with a PC, even if you're connected by USB. Even from a Mac it's rare that I can successfully print using wireless.
Summary: It drinks ink like wine, especially yellow. Printer announces the ink has "expired" overnight and must be replaced. It appears that HP will do anything to sell ink. It's gotten so I wiill now no longer purchase another HP printer, in addition to laptops (for similar, dodgy reasons).
Summary: The C6180 is an awsome AIO printer/scanner/fax etc, the print results and scan quality are outstanding. I think the prices for the (6) ink cartridges are fair, in that you only have to replace the color you have run out of... but it may run you $70 + to replace all of them!
Summary: I have had numerous HP AIOs and my last one, a psc2400 was great. It got fried by lightning last summer and I purchased this one in a rush, basically because it had a document feeder and it was an HP. It constantly thrashes around adjusting itself and is very slow to copy and print.
Summary: The 6180 was purchased to replace a previous hp printer that did not have an automatic document feeder. I never had any problems with that printer. This one has had two problems that hp is unable to solve.
