Conclusion: HP has succeeded in producing a line of archival inkjet printers that can easily compete with anything currently in the market place. This is an impressive accomplishment considering the fact that this is their very first entry into professional level archival photographic printing.
Excerpt: During the holidays I decided that it was time to print some of the photos I managed to capture during the holidays (girl friends wrestling New Year’s Eve, gorgeous holiday night New York skyline, a cohort with a classic devilish mug as he spiked the eggnog with rum).
Summary: Hewlett-Packard has done a standout job with the HP Photosmart Pro B9180, a £500 high-end photo inkjet printer that brings the feature set and print quality of £1,000 printers to the desktop of any serious digital photographer or graphic artist.
Summary: Though the printer we have here is a beta version and still needs the Windows drivers to be tweaked, the quality of printing so far is outstanding, especially on a Mac. We’re sure the final retail version will give other manufacturers something to worry about.
Pros: Build; 200 years life of prints (claimed); replaceable print heads; separate ink cartridges
Cons: The large physical size (w 25.3in, h 8in, d 15.7in); maximum media length of 19ins
Summary: Try as we might, we couldn't come up with any significant defects in the HP Photosmart Pro B9180. The only thing we didn't like is how the printer can sometimes crimp one end of very thick paper when fed through the manual-feed slot.
Pros: Colour calibrator, pigment-based inks, HP Printer Utility allows you to install custom paper profiles directly into the printer's driver, excellent prints with colours coming out almost perfect
Cons: It sometimes crimps one end of very thick paper when fed through the manual-feed slot
