The C5180 is like most all-in-ones -- it saves a lot of desk space, but can't do everything equally well. It's best used as a home copier and printer. As a scanner, it's only average.

Using HP's new inexpensive 6 color "02" ink, it produces gorgeous photo prints when you use photo inkjet paper. Text on plain paper is a little soft and not as black as I'd like. You really need to use HP's new Advanced everyday paper and photo paper products to get good results.

The C5180 also installs a great suite of software for Mac OS X. It's the most Mac-like printer and scanner software I've used (I've also used Canon and Epson printers/scanners).

The only bad thing about this unit relates to the scanner. The noisy scanner produces so-so results, with a lot of noise at higher resolutions. The scanner doesn't have any descreening functions, so any magazine scans look crummy. The auto color correct is really aggresive and usually introduces more color problems than it solves. Unfortunately, you can't scan with Mac OS X's Image Capture - you have to use HPs scanner softare. It does have a neat feature than you can scan directly to a memory card, so no computer is needed. The included OCR software is mostly worthless. I couldn't get it translate any white text on a black background or normal type at small point sizes.

So in a nutshell:


-Inexpensive, individual ink cartridges

-Great photo prints with HP photo paper

-LCD makes printing directly from memory card very easy

-Ability to scan directly to memory card

-Compact size

-Great Mac-like software

-Terrific home copier


-So-so scan quality

-Scanner software missing features

-Noisy scanner mechanism

-Crummy OCR software

I am an avid scrapbooker & organizational nut. I purchased this because I was looking for something that would print nice photos, but would also multitask & free up space in my office by eliminating the need for a seperate scanner & copier. This was just the answer!

The prints, particularly in borderless 4 x 6, are just beautiful! I am very, very pleased with the results on HP Premium Plus High Gloss Paper. Totally blows my old Epson out of the water!

I am also amazed at the ink consumption. With my old printer, after just a few pages of scrapbooking, I'd have to replace ink cartridges. I have done 14+ 12x12 pages thus far - some included borderless high res. 8.5 x 11 photos & I have not even put a DENT in the ink.

As for the paper tray issue someone else spoke of - you just need to pay attention to the settings before you print. You need to select which tray you want to draw the paper from. Easy! :)

All in all - it's a great printer. I'm sure there are better, much more expensive printers out there -- but this does the trick for me. I'm one very satisfied customer!

While it may not be evident from the description, this printer may be connected via the network in addition to USB. This allows all PCs on the network to access the printer, scanner, and card readers, without having any particular machine turned on. (Note, however, that a network install probably slows the first page response somewhat.)

HP's install SW seems to have matured since my experiences with other HP printers. (I had dreaded the install, but had no problems with this.)

I also like the second tray for the 4X6. While I swore off making prints at home (due to the hassle, cost and quality) this feature and the results will probably have me making prints on this machine.

In all, I'm very impressed.

I was looking for a printer/copier/scanner for my parents and this one seemd to be perfect for them. It was not expensive, easy to use and did not have a lot of buttons to confuse them.

The printer is excellent. The photo quality is incredible. I had gone to a number of local stores and printed sample photos from many different printer models and manufactures. The quality of this printer stacked up well against everything else out there. Photos look very smooth and have excellent color saturation. The text/graphics print quality and speed is very good. I have it set up in draft mode for "everyday" printing and it gets about 18 ppm and very legible print quality.

The copier is also very good. I have a very hard time distinguishing the original from the copy. It prints the copies very fast.

The only thing about the unit that is disappointing is the scanner. First of all, let me say that the scanner is not terrible, I was just a little disappointed with it compare to the rest of the machine. While it can scan text/graphics documents well, it does not do so good with photos. It tends to lose detail and alter the colors of the photo. This unfortunately makes the unit less than ideal for reprinting photos. Also, the scanner software for the PC is not user friendly and is kind of slow. (And I have a extremely fast computer.) It is just unfortunate that the scanner, in my opinion, falls show of the quality of my 5-year old Epson scanner I have.

If you want a printer with incredible photo quality output and the convenience of a copier without the need of a computer, then this is a good choice. As for the scanner, perhaps buying a dedicated scanner would be a prudent move to compensate for this unit's shortcomings.
