  • Summary: It doesn't matter what kind of paper or what quality paper jam at least half the time. If paper tray is less than half full, it will always jam
  • Pros: simple to operate when it works
  • Cons: paper jams most of the time and hard to unjam

Ahhh!

Nicole B., Newegg
21 June 2009
  • Summary: Five stars for the unit... Zero stars for getting it to your house in one piece.
  • Pros: Great printer scanner copier... when it's not smashed.
  • Cons: Does NOT ship well at all! I bought one of these locally and used it for almost two years and absolutely loved it! We recently moved, and the scanner smashed in transit. I liked it so much I ordered a duplicate last week... and it smashed in shipping. Being in the middle of setting up a new home,...

Be Advised!

Dennis C., Newegg
8 June 2009
  • Summary: None, I'm still in awe that a company as big as HP would have a warranty policy this idiotic. I'm surprised they have as many customers as they do!
  • Pros: This is a nice printer, maybe a little slow but what do you expect for the price? If it was 3 or 4 hundred bucks I'd be disappointed. You get what you pay for, albeit the best price anywhere from the Egg but you buy middle of the road you get middle of the road performance. It does print incredib...
  • Cons: Most people don't know this but HP printer come with a 1 year warranty but not if you don't buy the printer directly from HP. If you buy it here you get what is left of the warranty because it starts from the date of manufacture, not the day you buy it from Newegg. If it was manufactured 11 month...

Pass this one up - or run from it

Terry L., Newegg
2 June 2009
  • Summary: Steer clear of this HP printer.
  • Pros: None to speak of
  • Cons: Slow printing times, especially when hooked up to network. Smears like crazy, allow 1 hour drying time before touching the printed document (I wish I was joking about this). Lackluster scanning .... yet to try photo printing, I really dont have the spare time to let the photos dry.

C6280 repeat failures?

Marvin M., Newegg
18 May 2009
  • Summary: I have to reconsider whether or not I would get this printer again.... Seems to be a pattern of failures that I can not understand.
  • Pros: When working it produces great color pictures.
  • Cons: The first C6280 failed after about three months. The Cyan simply quit printing. Tried new cartridge but the head appears to be completely shutdown. No streaking or partial failure. Just totally dead. After a long, long discussion with customer service and many resets and power off then on testing...

Fast, Good quality Prints and scans

Anonymous, Newegg
11 May 2009
  • Summary: When will HP learn that when I buy a printer scanner I just want to scan and print. I don't care about all the new types of HP paper that they now have. I would much rather have a lean driver that doesn't take too much space or system resources.
  • Pros: Prints are fast and of great quality. It's a thermal printer, so the ink doesn't go through the paper. Easy network configuration. Excellent support under Linux. Good HP support.
  • Cons: Windows driver has a ton of bloatware. Why does a printer/scanner need 100mb+ driver? All the extra stuff does not add any value. HP update service won't let the PC shutdown until you kill the process manually. Before and after each print , it makes a lots of noise for a while doing something all...

Awesome Wireless Printer

Anonymous, Newegg
5 March 2009
  • Summary: There are not many cons with this printer, just that it doesn't connect to the network sometimes. This could be Vista compatibility issues, because we bought this when Vista was still having trouble with drivers. I think they fixed most of the issues now though.
  • Pros: 1. Wireless Printer 2. Great Print Quality 3. Can hold a lot of paper at once 4. Memory Card Reader 5. Memory Card Preview Screen 6. Large Scan Space 7. Easy to Replace Ink 8. Software is AWESOME, you can do a lot to photos. 9. Nice Design
  • Cons: -1. Sometimes when you try to view photos from the computer, the memory card doesn't show up. -2. Black ink runs out very fast, even if you print on fast draft -3. Heavy

Ehh

  • Pros: Its does what it says and says what it does.
  • Cons: After printing a document, this thing will spend up to 30 or 40 seconds making REALLY annoying sounds as it does...well, I'm not even sure what its doing. Also, when the ink is low its little "!" light glows orange and it refuses to print! very annoying.

If you don't mind paper jams...

Can S., Newegg
13 January 2009
  • Summary: The one I got may have been an aberration but I heard similar complaints from other HP printer owners so food for thought - I am not happy. YMMV.
  • Pros: The print quality is good. It prints quite fast when printing long documents in "fast draft" mode but not so great when you queue up bunch of short documents. Two sided printing is great - saves trees.
  • Cons: Paper jams and mis-feeds. I have never had a printer that jammed paper this much since I bought my first printer 15+years ago. I am thinking on going office-space on it right about now.

Excellent Printer

Mike J., Newegg
6 January 2009
  • Summary: Very good price and very good quality. I would recommend this printer to anyone, especially if you are someone who takes alot of pictures. The network capability through ethernet is very nice to have as well. Plus Scan and copy, this printer has all you will ever need.
  • Pros: I have only had this printer for a couple of days now, but so far so good. First off, my girlfriend who is completely computer illiterate hooked it all up. So that shows how easy setup is. The photo print quality is amazing. Smooth, even and no lines. Looks very much like studio quality prints. I...
  • Cons: So far absolutely none.
