HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One

No automatic document feeder or paper output tray ; Can't have USB and wireless modes enabled simultaneously ; Very small LCD

As the As the $129 HP Photosmart C4580 is primarily a photo printer; it performed better in that respect than the similarly priced Canon and Brother devices. However, while it acquitted itself adequately for office tasks such as scanning and copying,...

HP Photosmart C4580 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier


Perfect for those who don't want to spend a bundle on the printer or the ink, the HP Photosmart C4580 offers high-quality prints without all the extras.

HP Photosmart C4580


Great print quality.

Good quality printing, integrated Wi-Fi, minimal design

Inferior build quality, poor scanning, some colour inconsistencies

The C4580 continues HP's trend of improving the quality of its low-end inkjets. Though there's still room for improvement, the C4580 is good value for money.

Do not buy


Same thing happened to me as the previous reviewer except that it took only one month to stop working. In all actuality, I printed 3 times and then it stopped working. It started thinking the black cartridge was a color cartridge and gave me an error...
