Requires lots of care and feeding

W. Chilson, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this printer for just over a year. It prints wonderful borderless photos. The copier feature is unbelievable vivid - I think the copy is better than the original. The scanner, when coupled with the automatic document feeder makes scanning documents quick. The wireless ethernet port allows me to print from my laptop. In spite of all these wonderful features, I would not recommend this printer. It requires a lot of care and feeding.

Great Quality, Bad Ink User!

  • Summary: This is the worst printer I have ever owned for use of ink. The color ink runs out even if you don't print color. Worst yet the printer won't even print black with an empty color. It does a great job on photos. But I wouldn't buy this printer again.

Below average printer

S. Hall, Amazon
21 September 2010
  • Summary: The only component of this printer that exceeds expectations is its wireless feature. Mine has worked without a problem for the nearly two years that I've owned it. The scanner works fine, as does the fax component. The rest of the printer is a waste of time. It fails to print for whatever reason probably 50% of the time. Out of ink, out of paper, jammed paper, pick a reason. Send it a b&w file when a color cartridge is low and you have to "ok" for it to print.

Good for Awhile

  • Summary: I liked this printer (and it's predecessor with the 02 ink cartridges) because each color is in it's own cartridge. Because the predecessor only lasted 2 years before the power supply went screwy, when I got the C7280 I also got a UPS with surge suppression and power conditioning for my computer and the printer. End result, I got an additional year because now, 3 years later, this printer is having the same power supply failures as the old one.

Nice features but questionable quality

  • Summary: I would not recommend the printer, too many quality issues to be considered acceptable. Support I would also rate below average.
  • Pros: Features for the price, and print quality.
  • Cons: Build quality, engineering, software, and support.

Great spec, expensive to run and pain to set up.

  • Summary: I bought two of these printers as they offered fantastic spec for the price. Whoever is responsible for printer software at HP needs to be fired. It took me several days of searching comments and feedbacks from users to get it working on WI-FI mode. Here is what you do: 1) Make sure you use a static IP address on the printer, dynamic one causes it to sulk you will never be able to print a thing.

zu teuer für diese Leistung

  • Summary: Ich habe diesen Drucker nun schon einige Zeit und war voller Hocherwartung beim Kauf dessen. Mir wurde eine hohe Scan- und Druckqualität versprochen, die ich auch bestätigen konnte. Nach dem Umsteigen von einem älteren All-in-One Produktes der Firma HP, war ich anfangs auch vollkommen zufrieden. Leider ging es nach ca. 3 Monaten los, das sich der Drucker mittendrin einfach aufhing und nicht mehr bedienen ließ.
  • Pros: gute Druckqualität, eingebautes Fax, schneller Scan -  und Druckvorgang
  • Cons: hängt sich auf, zu teuer, Papierhalterung verutscht selbstständig
