WARNING!

Joseph Dasilva, Amazon

  • Summary: This printer does not work with Photshop CS3 despite HP's sales hype...in particular it does not work with a color managed workflow (where photoshop manages the color) and that is very important to anyone using icc profiles etc.

  • Summary: The 2-star rating is based upon my experience with HP's tech support for this printer, not on usage of the device. I am considering purchasing this product, and in doing pre-purchase research read a lot of reviews including a tech review in MacLife.

incredibly frustrating

  • Summary: As a disclaimer, I've only had this printer a few weeks, and haven't taken a lot of time to learn the ins and outs of it yet. However, I have to say, if you're an artist wanting to print on any weight of paper with any sort of substance, this printer isn't doing the job.

Disappointed

  • Summary: I took a chance when I bought this unit because I saw the bad ratings. I must say that I'm usually able to work with an HP product and get it to work. This is one of four HP Printers that I've owned in the last 5 years.

A good alternative to the HP B9180 for professional print artists
