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.
Summary: I owned an HP C7280 for years. I wore it out from useage, normal wear and tear. When I started researching for a new printer I discovered new printers are all black (shows dust to easy) New printers are getting bigger, (I like the smaller size of the this HP) I decided what a really wanted was my old printer to be new again.

Summary: I have had really good luck with this printer. I have had it for a year and a half and originally hooked it up to the wireless router with two laptops printing and scanning off of it. The photo quality is great, There is an SD slot I can print my pictures through. This biggest problem I had is when I loaded on to one of our laptops manually without the software disc and it printed a blank page after every page, but I found some help of the web and that problem was...
Summary: Comments about HP Photosmart C7280 Multifunction Photo Printer: Primary use is for a monthly newsletter, and photos. It has performed flawlessly and amazes everyone in the office who has used it. I loved it so much I bought one for home. Owned for a year and has never missed a beat. Initial setup would'nt display ink levels, but a quick and friendly call to HP tech solved the problem quickly. Had no problem with second unit.
