HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One ( color )

 

The $300 HP Photosmart C6180 is a photo printer by name but has office-printer tendencies by function. The inclusion of an automatic document feeder, built-in networking (including wireless), and fax functionality make it attractive as an office...

Built-in networking, including wireless; supplies ADF and media card reader; PictBridge port can be used to connect storage devices; great print quality and good scan quality; dedicated photo paper tray.

Task speeds are a bit slow; color prints can be expensive; photo print features need to be fleshed out.

The HP Photosmart C6180 all-in-one tries to be everything to everyone, and ultimately it fails to meet this lofty goal. It's a good printer at a decent price, however, for the home user who wants to consolidate all tasks into one machine.

Nowadays, £176 is a lot of money for an inkjet printer but, as a multi-function device, this Photosmart really delivers on all fronts. At its heart, the C6180 has HP's latest generation six-ink printer that relies on separate cartridges for each colour

Flexible, with a host of manual controls, Very well built, with a great lens, Printing costs are low, Features, Connectivity, Printing speeds, Print quality

Sluggish lens operation, Expensive, Costly

The C6180 offers excellent print quality for documents and photos and, although it's expensive, you get a great deal for your money

HP - Photosmart C6180

 

All-in-one office machines are all the rage at the moment, as they hold out the promise (especially for small businesses) of combining many tasks at a high standard for remarkably low costs. HP is one of ...

Not the fastest All-in-One on the market, but the ease of use, superior photo print quality and networking capabilities should ensure a faithful fan club among small business operators.

This is a MFU (multi function unit) as not only can it copy, scan and print but should you require it then it can also send and receive faxes.

The is cream with grey trimmings and as such may just creep into a lounge. It's dimensions are 44x33x23cm and it weights just over ten kilos. I would describe this as an office machine and as such it is fast but on the other side of the scales it is...
