"Beautiful Machine - Impossible to Install"

rempson, CNET
10 February 2009
  • Pros: Beautiful prints-scan resolutions-well built machine. It's like having your very own photo kiosk.
  • Cons: Software installation is impossible - been fighting it for two days. It is corrupting so many of my files - if/when I get it to work right, I will have to repair and reinstall many programs.

Not what I needed

Constantine, pcRUSH.com
5 June 2008
  • Summary: Comments about HP Photosmart C8180 Multifunction Photo Printer: I've been used to the term "all-in-one" meaning that it has all the standard uses in one machine, but HP takes out the fax. The print quality looked amazing on this printer but printing in good quality was slower than most. Sadly, I needed a fax machine as well and didn't want to buy a separate one to sit next to this printer just wasn't worth it.
  • Pros: Fast Operation, Great print quality
  • Cons: No Fax, Slow Operation

Good Printer - Badly Implemented

Rincer of Winds, Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: I am more than a little disappointed with this printer, while the printing results are quite good, the overall package is quite poor. The printer has a standard paper try which only holds a minute amount of paper. It also has a smaller photo paper tray that can only take the 6"x4" size photo paper, why HP couldn't have made it big enough to hold the slightly larger 5"x7" I just don't know.

HP prnter C8180

Mrs. Janis Farmer, Amazon
2 May 2009
  • Summary: HP C8180 Photosmart All-in-One Printer Works ok but print is not waterproof. If you lick fingers to sort paper the ink smudges. Similarly if you pick up printed paper with wet hands the ink smudges. I think HP need to consider changing the ink in cartridges to remedy this. I frequently present papers and teach using handouts and these need to be waterproof.

Great printer - but fiddly setup

Richard Easton "TrickyDicky", Amazon
28 April 2009
  • Summary: The printer is excellent once you've got it installed - but boy, does that take some doing! OK, I may have an atypical setup: wired network/wireless access point, but I wouldn't expect to have such grief with the HP software actually finding the printer (when it's right next to the AP). Other bad points: In common with all other multifuntion HP printers, the driver/software package is a CPU/memory hog and causes a real slowdown at boot-up.

It's OK and that's about it!!

C. Winner "Chris Winner", Amazon
31 January 2009
  • Summary: On the plus side, setting the printer up on my wireless network was very easy and quick. The print quality is very good - as you should expect from a photo printer. The ink cartridges are easy to fit. On the down side which is why I have marked the printer down is the paper feed - I find it very temperamental. I use a range of paper and thin card for card making and other activities.
