HP Photosmart C7280 may not be so smart.

  • Excerpt: As far as HP goes ... they have come a long way since the 90's. I don't think you can get any better hardware than HP. This printer though, to me, is just average. It has individual ink cartridges for each color and a separate one for black - all with the idea of being more economical. It is very inconvenient though to have to replace individual cartridges because it will stop printing when it runs out of one.

The HP C-7280 printer may not be the best choice

  • Excerpt: This printer seems to have a mind of it own. It's less than 2 years old. I've had it go through what I call "fits". All the buttons would flash on and off, and you can not shut it off, unless you unplug the printer from the power supply. Twice now I have had this printer come up with a message on the screen that "one of the ink cartridges is missing or damaged".

This all-in-one printer frequently malfunctions!

  • Excerpt: This is not the first HP printer that I have  owned. Each time I buy one, I say "never again", but then I buy one anyway. The price is right, and has all the features I'm looking for. However, while in the middle of working, when I try to print a page, I'll get a "printer off line" message. Every time that happens, I have to uninstall, then reinstall the program. Besides being time consuming, it's extremely annoying.

Decent all-in-one for everyday print jobs

  • Excerpt: I've had the HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one for two or three years now, and it fulfills most of my everyday printing needs. It prints out fast, whether it's prining in black and white or color. It does a pretty good job on photo prints, and I love that it has a separate tray specifically for 5x7 photo paper. The scan function works well, but it's a pain to get the program to run.

Many good features - but beware of software

  • Summary: Avoid if you don't want to monkey around with HP software. It's okay once everything starts working as advertised - printer itself really fit my needs.
  • Pros: Solid All-In-One features: printer, copier, fax, scanner. Prints 4x6 photos. Wireless network printing!
  • Cons: Dysfunctional and bloated HP software. Support experience was pleasant but ineffective.

  • Summary: Having previously had the HP officejet 7310 I was very disappointed with the mechanics of the C7280, it is very noisy and busy even when preforming the most basic of task's. on the plus side the image quality is very impressive and the connectivity and ease of setup is commendable.

good but should be better

  • Summary: Picked this printer after doing the research Having used it myself I have found The amount of ink in the black cartridge is not enough and it uses loads, much more than the Epsom it replaced. The cartridges are expensive [cheapest Amazon] The ink also smudges if you touch it It is very noisy in use, clunks and whirs all the time when in use The print quality and speed is very good hence the 3 stars
