Waste of time and Money for a major headache!

Richard Rodriguez, Amazon
15 April 2015
  • Summary: I bought this machine a couple of years ago for about $300 I assume when it first came out. Considering the fact that it never went through harsh times this thing has given me nothing but problems.

Poor quality and broke

Chris C, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought a few years ago. The quality if not good for photos and average for text. We use genuine ink cartridges but now it says ink system failure. I have to restart (which takes about 2 minutes). Then I'm able to print.

Printer not fit for photos.

Sara, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: The printer only prints in black and three colors. I bought it for photos and they are horrible. Based on discussion with HP, the printer head is failing and unrepairable. A waste of my money!

HP printers capacitor defect

Marcus10, Amazon
20 January 2013
  • Summary: As with 1000's of others who have commented on line, this and other HP printers of similar design have faulty capacitors that fail causing "ink system failure" messages on the printer LCD screen. Unit has to be turned off then back on to reboot every time you want to print something.

Disposable printer

C. R. J.C., Amazon
10 May 2012
  • Summary: I bought this printer because I have been a big fan of HP printers for the last 20 years. I needed photo quality small prints and a decent scanner. When this printer worked I got beautiful prints and okay scans.

Most frustrating printer ever.

Jan Wilson, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: Don't buy this printer. It's the touchiest piece of equipment I've ever owned. I can't tell you how many times I've practically been in tears because it won't do the simplest task -- tasks that it's done a million times before.

Don't buythe C8180 if they give it away!

Sandra, Amazon
7 October 2011
  • Summary: I was enamored with the appearance of the printer and the listed functionality, exactly what I needed, until I tried to install it. I had been a loyal HP user for years and although they were becoming more troublesome with each printer I bought, I was determined to keep using HP.

Not Good

The Bull, Amazon
4 May 2011
  • Summary: This printer is not what they had said. It Did Not Work as a NEW printer let alone a refurbished or used printer. My old printer that is the same make & model works better. This was with out a doubt a very BAD purchase by myself & will not happen again.

The NIGHTMARE is over

Edna Herbert, Amazon
28 February 2011
  • Summary: I have made the decision to trash this printer now that I've tried for over a year to get it to work as promised. I should have realized during installation that this was going to be trouble as I had to install and uninstall it several times.
