Summary: The HP Photosmart C6380 is a good fit for beginning photographers who want more than just a simple printer. Its six-ink cartridge bay, and scanning and copying capabilities extend its versatility, and while the output quality suffers a few missteps, the C6380 remains a worthwhile deal for the money.
Pros: Inexpensive; dual output trays; fast output speed; painless Wi-Fi setup; comprehensive driver software; easy to use; small footprint.
Cons: Output quality will not satisfy professional photographers.
Excerpt: (1 items) We expect much from our electronics these days. Our phones need to surf the Web. We want our snapshot cameras to record movies. So a printer that just spits out ink-covered pages seems so, well, yesterday. Nearly every major printer manufacturer has released a hybrid device that saves us time and space while increasing productivity.
Pros: Handy 2.4” LCD screen with easy to use menus, Mac friendly software, Single color ink cartridges, Easy to set up WiFi networking, High quality photo output
Cons: No USB cable in the box, Large prints will drain ink cartridges quickly, Too noisy for quiet areas, Not easy to duplicate prints with borders
Excerpt: HP Photo smart C6380 All in one Printer is both a stylish and functional printer designed for home and official use which would fit in equally well with a PC or Apple Mac Installation. Following the latest trend of moving towards wireless connections for printers, the Photosmart C6380 includes what Hp refers to as Easy WI FI. Colored in ice white, silver and light grey this all in one printer looks smart, trendy and unfussy.
Summary: HP Photosmart printers are typically excellent printers, and in most regards the C6380 is no exception. It does everything an all-in-one should do (except fax), and does it well--and, as the name would suggest, it excels when it comes to photo printing. Still, given the competition in this price range, the glitchy software added a level of difficulty where there should be none, and the printer lost some points.
Pros: Excellent photo prints, Wireless networking built in, Energy Star qualified
Cons: Can be noisy during print setup and preparation, Software issues made setup a hassle, Ink thirsty
Summary: A few things about the HP Photosmart C6380 seem not to fit with its midrange price. In most ways, however, it handles a multifunction printer's many tasks with aplomb, making it one of the better-designed competitors on the market.
Summary: HP's Photosmart C6380 All-In-One colour inkjet multifunction printer may target home photo enthusiasts, but it does a good job at nearly everything. Still, a few of its features are a bit skimpy for the price.
Summary: The C6380 is a versatile, relatively inexpensive all-in-one option for a home or small office. Excellent photo prints and black and white documents make the investment worth it, but do consider the ongoing cost of consumables in the overall package.
Pros: Excellent photo-quality prints, Very easy to use, Wireless/Ethernet connectivity, Very quiet during printing...
Cons: ...and very noisy afterwards, No document feeder
