Relatively fast. Reasonably high-quality output across the board. Prints, scans, and copies

LCD for previewing photos on memory cards is unusually small. Relatively high cost per page

The HP Photosmart C4680 All-in-One delivers on features, but the high cost per page can easily make it more expensive overall than a printer that costs more.

HP Photosmart C4680

 

HP's Photosmart C4680 color inkjet multifunction printer (MFP)--$100 at this writing--is priced to look like a bargain. Given its costly inks and slow speeds, however, it's best suited for low-volume use.

Good print quality ; Nice control panel

Slow; expensive inks ; Low-capacity, cheap-feeling paper trays

The Photosmart C4680 would be a decent choice for a light-duty home MFP, given its nice output and friendly controls. However, if you print or copy a lot, look for a faster machine with much lower ink prices

Good print quality ; Nice control panel

Print quality is impressive for a model this inexpensive to buy, but its ink costs are high.

HP C4680 -- Inexpensive Black Box With a Nice Touch

 

It seems like ever since Kodak introduced its rough-around-the-edges pigment inkjets, HP has been playing catch-up in the inkjet game. They countered Kodak's claim of less expensive prints with bundled consumables and green packaging. And with the...

While we did like the small TouchSmart touch frame, we weren't happy with how the card reader integrated into our real world setting. And while the box itself is attractive (particularly to dust and fingerprints), the image quality was not up to the...

HP Photosmart C4680 review

 

The HP Photosmart C4680 covers just the basics. It has a USB connector but no ethernet or media-card slots. Its single input tray maxes out at 80 sheets. It has no output tray: prints or copies simply drop on top of the input stack-to a maximum of 15...

The HP Photosmart C4680 would be a decent choice for a light-duty home MFP, given its nice output and friendly controls. However, if you print or copy a lot, look for a faster machine with much lower ink prices.

HP - PhotoSmart C4680

 

With reams of budget all-in-ones (AIOs) available for casual users there's a constant battle between speed, quality and value, and HP has attempted to find the right combination yet again here with the PhotoSmart C4680. We ...

The PhotoSmart C4680 is certainly capable of some impressive results from colour photo printing and offers solid performance for document prints, but while its slower print speeds are acceptable given the price point, based on the price of replacement...

Good

 

Does what it's supposed to. On Linux! Don't forget to pick up a USB cable.

Got this for my parents. Works well, nice prints and scans. Supports Xubuntu out of the box

I do not recall a USB cable included. Thankfully I foresaw this complication, and there was a combo deal with a 10 foot USB cable. Cable was 3 bucks, the combo discount was 3 bucks, so it was free from a pure money standpoint
