HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One Printer

 

HP's new flagship printer is the HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One printer, scanner and copier. But can it live up to its flagship status? We get printing to find out. The HP Photosmart C8180 is the flagship in a range that now sports six models and you...

Wi-Fi, touchscreen display, 35mm scanner, good quality prints

No Fax, no document feeder, inks aren't cheap

The HP Photosmart C8180 is the flagship in a range that now sports six models and you can see why. Impressive from the get go the only thing missing is no automatic document feeder, or the option of one, and no fax capabilities, but to be honest both...

HP Photosmart C8180 review

 

HP is trying to make its Photosmart C8180 stand out and has included a DVD rewriter, a touchscreen, a transparency scanner and Bluetooth.

The Photosmart C8180 boasts a good range of features and excellent photo output, but it's let down by its poor performance in printing black text.

HP Photosmart C8180 multifunction photo printer

 

The HP Photosmart C8180 is a colour 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 cost,...

Serious digital shutterbugs will love the HP Photosmart C8180's do-it-all photo processing capabilities. Everyone else should consider HP's more businesslike OfficeJet Pro L7680 or Canon's Pixma MX700, which offers a more balanced blend of photo and...

HP Photosmart C8180

 

HP is trying to make its Photosmart C8180 stand out and has included a DVD rewriter, a touchscreen, a transparency scanner and Bluetooth. In the process, though, it's pumped up the price to just under 200, which is a lot for a photo all-in-one. HP...

Overall, then, apart from the poor black print, this machine has just about all the bells and whistles a photo enthusiast could want

HP - Photosmart C8180

 

There seems to be an ongoing competition at the moment to see how many gadgets and features can be attached to an all-in-one printer, and HP's Photosmart C8180 has not only joined the race but has ...

A much improved all-in-one printer with a user-friendly touch-screen operation, DVD/CD burner, improved scanning quality and automated small photo feeder. A fax engine would have been nice, though.

HP Photosmart C8180

 

This is a All In One as it scans, copies and prints but it also has a built in Light Scribe CD drive so it can also do that bit more, so I suppose it's an All In One plus unit.

I have seen several small printers that are really designed as photo printers but they were all only for 15x10cm output. This is a full A4 printer and that as well as copying can be down from the four buttons on the interface that slides out 45% at the...

HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One review: HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One

 

HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One

Pleasing color and text prints; dual paper feed trays; best in class Wi-Fi set up; Bluetooth connectivity; direct archiving with built-in LightScribe DVD drive.

Lacks auto-document feeder and fax machine; expensive; very slow prints; grayscale scans lack definition.

The C8180 multifunctional printer is an excellent choice for photo enthusiasts. It prints high-quality text and photos at a heavy price: the printer is s...l...o...w. If you always choose quality over speed, the c8180 will be a worthwhile addition to...
