HP Photosmart Pro B9180 Photo Printer Review

  • 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. Not only does this printer produce high quality output it does so with a simplified and easy to follow color managed workflow via the print plug-in.

  • Conclusion: If you're serious about printing top-quality photos (or graphics, for that matter) at sizes up to 13 by 44 inches, the HP Photosmart Pro B9180 is a superb choice.
  • Pros: Maximum 13-by-44-inch paper. Fine-art papers available. Network connector. Photoshop plug-in.
  • Cons: Printing of photos and graphics on plain paper is subpar.

  • 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).

  • Excerpt: Both Canon and HP, on deciding to enter the pigment ink market saw this as an opportunity, and both have made sure that their new competitive pigment-ink-based printer lines hold both glossy and matte inks simultaneously. Canon's offerings use 12 inks, while HP's currently use 8.

  • 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. While we think there are definite reasons for purchasing some of the higher-priced Epson and Canon printers -- roll support, larger paper sizes, higher-production print runs -- the B9180 sits at an amazing price point for what you get.
  • 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

  • Excerpt: The immense weight of the B9180 makes it quite difficult to arrange on your desk, made worse by the fact that the paper tray sticks out the front so you can't get a good angle at it. It requires you to not only install the eight ink cartridges (which look like some space-age ammo) but you will also need to put the four print heads in, too. These are supposed to last for the whole life of the printer so you'll only need to do it once - hopefully.
