Don't recommend HP if you have a MAC

Douglas, Amazon
15 August 2014
  • Summary: I have an HP Photosmart C6280 printer which I bought quite a few years ago. I use a MAC running Mavericks and I just can't get the printer to work on over the network connection. I can print a test page but that is all. Don't recommend HP if you have a MAC!

My First - And Last - HP Printer

D. Fitzke, Amazon
12 July 2010
  • Summary: Because I've had experience with two of these printers I know it's a dud. The first one conked out just before the end of the 1 year warranty (what a coincidence!). HP was kind enough to send a replacement - which had some parts missing. After pirating them from the original I hooked up the unit and have had many of the same problems voiced elsewhere.

Cost of Ink Outrageous

Louise Bell "Louise Bell", Amazon
7 December 2009
  • Summary: The print quality of this printer is very good. The photos with the right paper are beautiful. The purchase price was great because I purchased it on sale and traded in another printer. The printer is a little noisy. It does a lot of resetting. It also will not work unless every cartridge has ink, which is ridiculous when only printing in black ink.

Photosmart C6280

  • Summary: This printer works ok when printing photos but documents it takes a long time to think when you are pinting multiple pages. Also the ink for this does not go on any other printer.

Spend your dollars elsewhere

online shopper "narfguy", Amazon
16 March 2009
  • Summary: Save your money. The HP C6280 does good work, but it has this annoying feature that it has to go through every now and then, especially when you need to print something. The sales rep told me it pressurizes the ink cartridges or something like that, in order to recycle. It sounds like a centrifuge.

HP C6280 All in One

Clifford L. Jones "Wavefront", Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: After having years of good HP printers, this one is a "dud". Paper jams are fairly common and, even more frustrating, it will often go into a "calibration routine" that lasts for several minutes when you try to print something. The scanner/copier is decent but not great as to speed and quality. Color photo printing off of an SD card is very good but not great. Software to scan and save to file is OK but the old Epson 1200U and its software seemed to work better.

Frequent paper jams, driver incompatible with Word 2007

michaelmccain, epinions.com
30 January 2009
  • Summary: Avoid buying this printer if you use Office 2007, if you don't tolerate paper jams, and if your annual ink budget is less than the value of the printer.
  • Pros: Higher quality than cheap printers, excellent photos, fast
  • Cons: Driver incompatibility with Word 2007, paper jams, ink-thirsty

Initial Experience Not Favorable

R. Bennett, Amazon
11 December 2008
  • Summary: HP C6280 Photosmart All-in-One Printer (CC988A#ABA) I am an intermediate computer user and I have had this product for one week and have a number of conflicts with my Windows Vista OS. MS Office 2007 quits abruptly because of a conflict with HP software. MS Word doesn't respond and refuses to close, and I am unable to close all programs and reboot the computer. This all began upon installation of this device. I never had such events with my Epson printers.

Great Performance, Awful Stability

Shades, Amazon
10 February 2008
  • Summary: For 200 dollars you'd think they could make a machine that is actually able to just print something when it's plugged in. Apparently not. When this thing works, it's beautiful. The automatic double sided printing, the scan and photo quality is more than you could want. But the software and drivers for this thing are a nightmare. I've had to reinstall them about five times now just because they are so sensitive to system changes of almost any kind.
