Richard, Norwich Occasional home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Amazing little printer. I cannot believe it can scan well, copy, and produce realistic colour prints even using the standard (not photo) inks. I have purchased the photo inks, but as yet have had no reason to use them. The standalone ability to print from an XD card works really well. OK, so the display is very small, and has been criticised by other reviewers. I personally thought it did the job well enough. After all it isn't there to do anything more than confirm what you are printing.
Bad points:
I understand the inks are reasonably expensive. But then there are refilled options and the high capacity ones probably bring the price of consummables down. Anyway, one does have to accept that convenience always comes at a price. This piece of equipment is convenient. It therefore comes at some price. But don't worry about it! It does the job well enough for me.

rachel, cockermouth Business user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
print quality excellent, photo printing also excellent easy to use, cartridges re-fillable (essential) price excellent
Bad points:
seems to be an issue with HP updates at the moment, both with this new one and an old photosmart C5280, which I have never had a problem with before. They have caused my PC to crash twice during the weekly updates, and when loading the software for the new printer C4480 on a different PC it knocks out the wireless internet connection? which can easily be re-established, but when HP tries to update it knocks the connection out again, am waiting for a friend to have a look at this issue which will be software related, so HP updates are currently turned off until the problem is resolved
