I've been a happy user of my HP 7280 all-in-one unit for a number of months. After I reluctantly returned the C7280 review unit, I put my money where my review mouth was, bought one, and have had no regrets.

HP asked me to review the C8180, and here's what I found after using on it for quite a while.

First off, the 8180 is not simply a 7280 with HP's revisions du jour; it has a higher resolution scanner and printer. 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. As we'll see, actually producing a 96 bit scan is awkward.

However, the 8180 has no fax capability at all. It has the same abilities to read from various types of camera memory cards, and it also can print via USB, Ethernet, or 802.11b/g wireless. It has no 802.11n capability. It also has the same print engine that uses six separate ink cartridges.

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. In addition to being controlled by the 8180 itself, the burner can be shared with your computer, and any application can print to the LightScribe print driver.

The 8180 comes with a sheet feeder capable of handling various paper sizes and quantities, although my review unit did not have one.

Given the flawless performance of the feeder on my 7280, I predict that the 8180's will function just as well.

The 8180's appearance has been updated.

I LOVE THIS PRINTER! I have been using HP printers since 1994 have had almost no problems with any of them. In fact, I am still using the one I bought in 1994 but it isn't a multi-function printer. I wanted to get a new printer that had copy, scan and photo capabilities. I bought a Canon MP970 because it had such high ratings. I hated it so I returned it and got the HP C8180 instead.

I don't understand what the negative reviewers are talking about since I have not encountered any of the problems they metion. In fact, my experiece with this printer has been the opposite of what they say.

Set up was fairly easy. I have it set up to work on my wireless network and encountered no problems during set-up. I installed the software on all the computers on my home network (three desktops and one laptop) and again had no problems. The whole set-up from start to finish took less than 1 hour (that's for the printer and all computers).

Apparently, some peple ecountered a problem with their printer uninstalling itself. HP has a driver update that fixes this issue. When installing the printer it gives you the option to check the web for updated drivers. I downloaded the update and I haven't had any problems.

A couple of the reviewers mentioned that the CD/DVD option only works in USB mode. This just isn't true. As I said, I have my printer connected via a wireless router (WiFi) and have been able to make picture DVDs. It's great to be able to pop in my camera's memory card and then just create a DVD.

If you want to burn a label onto a DVD, you must use LightScribe compatible DVDs (if you just want to save/backup your photos you can use any DVD).

If you buy this item you are asking for trouble. MANY of the features that are mentioned in pre-sale information do NOT exist on this printer or do not work as advertised.

First, is the DVD burning. Not until you unpack the printer and read the installation manual does it mention that you can't burn a DVD through a network connection. It is USB or nothing.

Second, and worse yet, is that the scanner, from the specs, appears to be a top of the line with 4800 dpi optical resolution. Good luck using it at this resolution.

Scanning at ANYTHING higher than the default resolutions usually won't work. The defaults are 200 dpi for film and 300 dpi for prints. For negatives 200 dpi is useless if you plan to blow it up past the size of a postage stamp.

Using Twain to transfer to Photoshop only works 10% of the time even at the default settings. Most times it will either report the file is too big (32 MB, who knew?) or just sit there and do nothing. The other scanning methods do not give enough control of scaling to be of any use.

I just used the non-twain scan option to bring in a 4x4 print at 1200 dpi and it took 5 minutes. My 10 year old Microtek scanner would do this in 60 seconds or less.

No where in the pre-sale specs does it mention these limits.

HP tells me that this is due to "defective hardware" the scanner was built on. Pardon me?

I am stuck with a piece of junk. I will never touch another HP product again.

Print quality? Can't tell you. Can't scan my existing negatives or prints well enough to get a decent print.

It also re-installed itself after being turned on. It made a duplicate of itself in the control panel.
