A CONSISTENTLY GREAT PRODUCT BUT WITH A WORD OF WARNING ABOUT THE INK PACKS
8 December 2013
Summary: I have had the HP Photosmart C7280 for some years. When it decided to go belly up, there was no hesitation about seeking out another one. Of course, I was not interested in buying anything new because the prices were so completely outrageous. So my only choice was to comb through the eBay site and see what was available. Luckily, the machine I bought was like brand new with very little print usage.
Excerpt: I bought my HP Photosmart C7280 as a replacement and upgrade, after my old printer died. I have used it to make photo prints of a quality equal to store bought. The scanner lets you decide if you want a document to be an OCR, or PDF, or just make a plain black & white or color copy. The only dowside that I have found is that I've had to buy various color refills. When making a lot of photos, it uses a lot of yellow.
Excerpt: The HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one printer is a good buy for home computer use. It doesn't take up much desk space but packs all the features needed. My photos printed with bright vivid colors. Not the fastest printer out there but has decent speed for day to day jobs. Ink cartridges are reasonably priced and very easy to install.
Excerpt: Very happy with the HPC7280! The best feature is wireless - I can have in my office but can move around if needed. Prints beautiful pictures! Love having a home office scanner for not a lot of money! And indivudual ink cartridges are much better than the B&W or color.
Excerpt: this printer does its job well. it was very easy to set up. the fax mode was no more than a follow the directions given on the screen and all will work. it uses individual ink cartridges. one multi colored pack costs 39 dollars on sale. now that isn't bad because they last a considerable amount of time. i use the computer a lot and i get several months from each cartridge. the problem comes when the same color cartridge keeps running out.
The HP Photosmart C7280 All-In-One printer is a smart choice.

Excerpt: The HP Photosmart C7280 All-In-One printer is one of the best choices I've ever made when it comes to home office equipment. I've had my printer for several years and have never had a problem with it. I've even dropped it once and it still loves me. It's easy to use and because everything (printer, scanner, fax, and copier) is included in the compact package I don't have several pieces of equipment cluttering up my office.
Excerpt: I had always bought Hp products until this one. It has totally changed my outlook on HP. The photos don' t even look like a photo. The printer jams continually. Everytime anything paper is put into the feeder it brings a window up on the computer. I don't need the computer to fax or copy! It takes forever for it to go through it's "printer preparation" every time I try to print anything.
