HP Photosmart Pro B9180 review

 

For printing on A3+, take a look at this HP monster

Robust build quality ; Low running costs ; Great colour and mono printing

£500 price tag could scare some off

The B9180 boasts battleship-like build quality for practically industrial levels of use, coupled with relatively inexpensive running costs. Great colour and mono printing all round.
