HP Photosmart C4480 Inkjet Multifunction Printer

 

This MFP offers many features for home and student users, but it falls short on speed and overall features.

Noteworthy text and photo quality ; Media slots ; simple design

Copies and scans slowly ; inks are pricey ; Copies and scans slowly ; inks are pricey

Ink costs are acceptable. The machine ships with a standard-size black cartridge and a tricolor cyan, magenta, and yellow cartridge, each of which lasts less than 200 pages. The high-yield versions are the cheapest way to go: a 710-page black cartridge...

HP Photosmart C4480 inkjet multifunction

 

A cheap HP inkjet multifunction that's surprisingly fast and doesn't cost much to run

Good quality mono and colour documents, decent print speeds, colour LCD

Poor LCD interface, fiddly consumable replacement, photo quality issues

Printed photos aren't the best quality, but HP's cheap inkjet multifunction can easily print and scan documents, despite a minimal feature set.

HP Photosmart C4480 - Inkjet All-in-One

 

This colour inkjet all-in-one is a bargain at less than £50.

The Photosmart C4480 is an easy-to use all-in-one, neat and well-organised, quiet to run and subjectively quick. Print quality is very good for an entry-level machine and if money is tight, it's a very good buy.

HP Photosmart C4480 review

 

The HP Photosmart C4480 has many of the shortcomings you would expect from an entry-level inkjet multifunction printer, including a minimal feature set and slow print speeds.

The HP Photosmart C4480's price tag is certainly appealing, and the running cost even more so. As a cheap document printer and scanner the Photosmart C4480 serves well, though you may want to spend a little extra for better quality photos.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Mine came with a black cartridge

 

I ordered 2 of these. Both came with black cartridges. Don't forget to order an USB cable; I ordered a 10 ft. cable. I can't comment on the scanning capability of this model, but the resolution specs make me think that the scans should be as good as...

Good color rendition. Descent color and b& ; w copies. 4x6 prints don't seem to use much ink

Instruction manual doesn't tell how to enlarge or reduce copies or scans. Installs too much software using default software installer

Decent, cheap printer

 

Affordable, good scan and print quality

Frequently fails to feed paper correctly ; the wheels spin and it says that it's empty when it isn't

HP Photosmart C4480 Q8388A Up to 30 ppm 4800 x 1200 dpi InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer - Retail

 

My old photosmart 8250's LCD turns off by itself after few minutes of idle.....

I followed the setup instructions exactly and had absolutely no problems-no error codes, etc. Great! The printer prints cleanly and does a decent job on photos[they definately look better than the instant development photos from Wal-mart

The cost of ink for hp printers is simply too high. Sure, they came out with some cheaper cartridges but they also have less ink in them
