Fantastic Features Of C8180 Rock
By SimrnVerified Reviewer from CA on 10/14/2008
Pros:
Durable Construction, Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Reliable
Best Uses:

Primary use:
Personal
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Printing options consist of plain album formats, a variety of layouts, and even video-frame impressions (which I’ve not used so far). The packaged HP Photosmart Essentials software brings extra tools. It has a complete input tray for 4*6 inches photo page - the size we usually get family photos printed out at. The platen inside the scanner (a built-in container for slides as well as negatives) digitizes this sort of hard photo media. It has 6 total inks consist of light cyan along with light magenta, for a wider palette when printing pictures.

I wanted to get a new printer that had copy, scan and photo capabilities. But I hated it so I returned it and got the HP. According to HP, the additional sensors that make up the 96 bit scanner sensor produce better color accuracy as well as reduced noise and grain from negatives. It is more obvious when scanning certain colors, like saturated reds and greens, and scanning certain types of originals, like offset press or inkjet prints. However, the 8180 has no fax capability at all. One important new addition is a CD/DVD burner with LightScribe capability. LightScribe allows you to print custom images or text on the face of LightScribe-compatible blanks. The 8180 is wider, due to the CD/DVD burner on the right side. During the setup, you select your connection method. I did not try the Bluetooth capability. HP advertises that Bluetooth will allow printing from a cellphone. Scanning over bluetooth would have been a cool feature but i guess it doesn't make sense as you would need to go to the printer to switch documents anyway. I have two computers, and each one has no problem communicating with the printer.

 
Perfect Photo Printer for Sharing

We got this printer because we needed to send pictures to our children who live all over the world. We couldn't be happier. We can copy old photos for projects we will mail, we can scan and email or put up on our new myspace site photos that the kids specifically ask for. It is really the best investment we ever made.

 
Not what I needed

Pros:
Fast Operation, Great print quality
Cons:
No Fax, Slow Operation

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've been used to the term "all-in-one" meaning that it has all the standard uses in one machine, but HP takes out the fax. The print quality looked amazing on this printer but printing in good quality was slower than most. Sadly, I needed a fax machine as well and didn't want to buy a separate one to sit next to this printer just wasn't worth it.

If you're looking for good photo prints, this printer is amazing for that. I don't know how much use the cd/dvd archiving feature will be put to use, most people I know do that on their PCs.

 
Good photo printer
By AbiVerified Reviewer from UK on 5/27/2008
Pros:
Easy Setup, Easy To Use
Cons:
Some limitations
Best Uses:
Professional Documents

The HP C8180 photo smart all in one printer is fairly easy to setup. It prints well and is fairly fast to use. I have made several DVDs of my pictures from my camera’s memory card. However the machine does have some limitations in that the disk burning and light scribe labelling can only be used in USB mode. It does come with Wi Fi mode which is advantageous to those who prefer wireless networks. There is also an extra DVD drive.
