HP Photosmart Pro B9180 Photo Printer

 

The HP Photosmart Pro B9180 Photo Printer prints superb photos on your choice of fine-art papers.

Maximum 13-by-44-inch paper. Fine-art papers available. Network connector. Photoshop plug-in.

Printing of photos and graphics on plain paper is subpar.

If you're serious about printing top-quality photos (or graphics, for that matter) at sizes up to 13 by 44 inches, the HP Photosmart Pro B9180 is a superb choice.

No need to swap matte and glossy black inks ; Great software bundle includes a Photoshop plug-in ; Ethernet and USB connectivity ; Efficient ink usage ; Prints neutral black and white images ; Great print quality on many different paper types

Printing with thick papers can result in slightly crimped edge

Review: HP Photosmart Pro B9180

 

This surprising printer delivers excellent, long-lasting output for the lowest price in its class.

In short, don't buy this printer. And if you do, never, ever call HP for support. It will be a complete waste of time

Try as we might, we couldn't come up with any significant defects in the Photosmart Pro B9180. The only thing we didn't like is how the printer can sometimes crimp one end of very thick paper when fed through the manual-feed slot.
