Summary: I purchased this printer directly from HP in 2008 and I'm still using it today. Yes, I hate the fact that it won't print in black when one of the color cartridges is empty. It's noisy and shakes a lot.
Summary: I love my printer for pictures. I tried to do some wedding invitations and the printer would not take the 5x6 cards for the reply. I bought this printer mainly for pictures and second for invitations. if anyone know of a printer the will print 5x6 cards, please let me know.
Great except for "printer preparation" and "power down"

Summary: I have owned my 8180 for about one year and am very pleased with the print and copy functions. I have also scanned 35mm slides to convert them to digital form with very good results. The unit was easy to set up and the ink usage is reasonable.
Summary: Comments about HP Photosmart C8180 Multifunction Photo Printer: Great for printing photos! Only problem is output periodically gets caught on small lip of platform and paper has small crease. Other than that it is a great printer!!
Pros: Compact Design, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality

Summary: The print quality and features of this printer are great. The build quality is also very good. However, the software that comes with this device has overwelmed my computer. For some reason (probably due to the wireless connection feature) there is a constant cycle of pausing for a second to run some...
Summary: I like the design and function of this machine. Since it does everything I want and need to do it minimizes footprint on my work surface. The scan is much faster and precise that previous HP scanner that I have used.
Summary: The HP C8180 is a good printer. I like the ease of use of the scanner and the copier. The only thing I don't like is the price of the ink. Whew!! It gets pretty darn spendy when you have to buy ink. Not the fault of the printer though. I have been happy with the printer overall.
Summary: All of the functions of the printer I've used so far are exceptional. As others pointed out it's a little slow compared to other printers. The print quality is worth it though. I have not tried the light scribe feature to burn and label any disks, but since it performs everthing else so well I'm...
