Photosmart C8180

 

The HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One is a color inkjet multifunction printer that's designed to be a one-stop photo-processing shop rather than an office workhorse. Its wealth of features--most notably, a DVD-rewritable drive--comes at a significant...

LightScribe drive; touchscreen LCD Integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Expensive; no ADF; no fax features Washed-out quality on plain paper

Ink costs are reasonable: 2.3 cents for a text page, and 9.3 cents for a page with small amounts of cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. A full-color photo will use more ink

HP Photosmart C8180 All-In-One

 

The HP Photosmart C8180 All-In-One includes a built-in DVD+RW dual-layer LightScribe drive to archive files and label the discs.

High-quality photos. Scans slides. Built-in DVD drive with LightScribe for archiving and labeling discs. Touch screen.

Slow. Low paper capacity. No fax support. Does a relatively poor job of printing directly from slides.

The HP Photosmart C8180 All-In-One (AIO) almost demands two ratings—one that considers price and one that doesn't. With its touch-screen menu controls, built-in DVD+RW dual-layer drive with LightScribe for archiving files and labeling discs, and—above...

Slow. Low paper capacity. No fax support. Does a relatively poor job of printing directly from slides

The HP Photosmart C8180 All-In-One balances some highly attractive touches, like its built-in DVD drive and high-quality photos, with some unfortunate flaws, notably its slow speed.

The HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One printer is a complex device that is actually pretty simple to use. A lot of the credit for that goes to the wonderful touchscreen menu system HP has designed. You need no training to figure it out. And that's saying a...

I've been a happy user of my HP 7280 all-in-one unit for a number of months. After I reluctantly returned the C7280 review unit, I put my money where my review mouth was, bought one, and have had no regrets.
