Take the HP Photosmart Premium Fax all-in-one , strip away the fax machine and auto-document feeder and you have the HP Photosmart C6380. It retains all the features you need to bring your photos to life: 9,600 by 2,400dpi flatbed scanner, dual paper...

Inexpensive; dual output trays; fast output speed; painless Wi-Fi setup; comprehensive driver software; easy to use; small footprint.

Output quality will not satisfy professional photographers.

The HP Photosmart C6380 is a good fit for beginning photographers who want more than just a simple printer. Its six-ink cartridge bay, and scanning and copying capabilities extend its versatility, and while the output quality suffers a few missteps,...

The C6380 is a versatile, relatively inexpensive all-in-one option for a home or small office. Excellent photo prints and black and white documents make the investment worth it, but do consider the ongoing cost of consumables in the overall package.

Excellent photo-quality prints, Very easy to use, Wireless/Ethernet connectivity, Very quiet during printing

and very noisy afterwards, No document feeder

HP's Photosmart C6380 All-In-One color inkjet multifunction may target home photo enthusiasts, but it does a good job at nearly everything. Still, a few of its features are a bit skimpy for the price.

Simple control panel ; Very good print quality

Small color LCD ; Orangey fleshtones on photo paper

This home/school model prints good-looking text and photos quickly, and the inks are well priced.

Inkjet all-in-ones (AIOs) tend to be designed primarily for either the home or office, even when they can claim a foot in both worlds. The HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One Printer ($199.99 direct) clearly falls into the home category, with high-quality...

High-quality photos. Prints directly from cameras, memory cards, and USB keys. Scans to USB key. Wired and Wi-Fi network support

No fax modem. No automatic document feeder

Aimed primarily at home users, with a nod toward light-duty home-office use, the HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier is most notable for its high-quality photo output.

If your budget for a home or light duty small business all-in-one printer is in the middle range, you won't find a better value than the Photosmart C6380. This is particularly true if you do a lot of photo printing – you can't beat the specs and...

Review: HP Photosmart C6380 multifunction device

 

The Photosmart C6380 printer is best designed for the photo enthusiast who also needs occasional plain paper output and document copying.

The C6380 prints documents up to 8.5 by 11 inches from the 125 sheet paper tray, and includes a dedicated 20-sheet photo tray for 4-by-6 and 5-by-7 prints. It has a 4,000 dpi, 48-bit color flatbed scanner that serves double duty as a copier, a 2.4-inch...

All the connectivity you’ll ever need.

 

The C6380 one-ups the C5380 in almost all respects, with its only failing being a slight decrease in photo print quality. Overall, the 6380 is a great addition to the networked home.

Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, fast printing, great quality, comprehensive scanning methods

Some banding apparent in photos, under-saturated scanning results, Bluetooth is optional

The HP Photosmart C6380 is a good choice for beginner photographers who want more than just a simple printer. Its five-ink cartridge bay, and scanning and copying functionality extend its versatility. While the output quality could be improved, the...

Inexpensive ; Dual output trays ; Fast output speed ; Painless Wi-Fi set-up ; Comprehensive driver software ; Easy to use ; Small footprint

Output quality won't satisfy professional photographers

Print quality is one of the only areas where the C6380 could use improvement. Although the output isn't the worst we've seen, it's not up to the same standard as other HP all-in-one printers that we've tested. The text prints are generally very good,...

HP Photosmart C6380 review

 

The HP Photosmart C6380 performed pretty well in our tests. It printed plain-text pages at a rate of 11.3 pages per minute (ppm), and colour graphics as fast as 3.2ppm - above average compared with the competition, though far slower than HP's claims...

A few things about the HP Photosmart C6380 seem not to fit with its midrange price. In most ways, however, it handles a multifunction printer's many tasks with aplomb, making it one of the better-designed competitors on the market.
