HP Photosmart C4480 Inkjet Multifunction Printer

 

This MFP offers many features for home and student users, but it falls short on speed and overall features.

Noteworthy text and photo quality ; Media slots ; simple design

Copies and scans slowly ; inks are pricey ; Copies and scans slowly ; inks are pricey

Ink costs are acceptable. The machine ships with a standard-size black cartridge and a tricolor cyan, magenta, and yellow cartridge, each of which lasts less than 200 pages. The high-yield versions are the cheapest way to go: a 710-page black cartridge...

HP Photosmart C4480 All-in-One Printer

 

HP provides some smart software with this easy-to-use and affordable all-in-one printer.

Fast printing ; Print what you see from Web pages ; 1.5-inch LCD

Standard photo quality just okay

The HP Photosmart C4480 is an easy-to-use all-in-one that's good for everyday photo and document printing. Being able to print without needing a computer is a plus, making this a strong low-cost choice for home and photo printing.

HP Photosmart C4480 All-In-One Printer

 

Despite a few small issues, the HP Photosmart C4480 All-In-One is easy to use and offers surprisingly good print quality with both photos and text.

Beautiful photo prints; quiet operation; simple to set up and use; low cost per page with high-yield tanks

Relatively slow print speeds; small included ink tanks; no networking support; unwieldy photo-printing software

The C4480 has a few flaws, but none of them are deal-breakers. We wish it printed faster, and that it had wireless connectivity options and an easier wizard for photo printing. Nonetheless, we can recommend the unit to those looking for a multifunction...

A cheap HP inkjet multifunction that's surprisingly fast and doesn't cost much to run

 

Printed photos aren't the best quality, but HP's cheap inkjet multifunction can easily print and scan documents, despite a minimal feature set.

Good quality mono and colour documents, decent print speeds, colour LCD

Poor LCD interface, fiddly consumable replacement, photo quality issues

HP Photosmart C4480 - Inkjet All-in-One

 

This colour inkjet all-in-one is a bargain at less than £50.

The Photosmart C4480 is an easy-to use all-in-one, neat and well-organised, quiet to run and subjectively quick. Print quality is very good for an entry-level machine and if money is tight, it's a very good buy.

HP Photosmart C4480 review

 

The HP Photosmart C4480 has many of the shortcomings you would expect from an entry-level inkjet multifunction printer, including a minimal feature set and slow print speeds.

The HP Photosmart C4480's price tag is certainly appealing, and the running cost even more so. As a cheap document printer and scanner the Photosmart C4480 serves well, though you may want to spend a little extra for better quality photos.
