I needed to replace a number of my single-use devices with AiO and unclutter my desk real estate. I decided on HP because a single quality of HP cartridges: the printer may be off line for quite long time, and when one needs it, just turn it on and voila. It prints without hesitation. My first color printer from Epson, every time upon turning on, used to start long process of heads cleaning, using up half of the cartridges capacity just for cleaning. Still quality of prints was far below expectation. HP cartridges are ready to print this very moment when you need them.

I run selection wizard at Staples site and it indicated to me that my choice shall be HP 6130, although, the 6130 cartridge capacity and yield was scary. Another option having better ink yield was $1000 9000-series machine, with over 50 lb weight. While 6130 would ruin my pocket with the cost of ink, the 9000-series one would definitely ruin my desk. I decided to call HP and review with a technician HP modern ink cartridges and their yield. It seemed that the 02 cartridge yield had an edge over other cartridges. While calculated cost of print on 6130 would be about c9 (ink only, based on yield), the 02 cartridge would produce a print at c3 to c4. The HP technician advised therefore 3130 machine and I went for it. Then in the store, next to 3130 I've seen a 6180 using same 02 cartridges and HAVING Automatic Document Feeder. That was the factor that pushed me into buying C6180.

Installation was a breeze. Everything worked as advertised. After two weeks with 6180 I still like it very much. Ethernet connection allows for all functions of the unit to be accessed from the computer. You can send a fax from the unit or from the computer, or you may mix in one fax input from a computer and from the unit.

We have had the new unit for about three weeks now. Setup was easy on two laptops and a desktop. Print quality is excellent on regular paper and fabulous on photo paper. Scanning is slow, and faxing and copying work as advertised.

I am very concerned about the cost of ink vs. the older HP all-in-one that this is replacing. HP appears to be doing everything it can to get you to consume more and more of their expensive ink - and what really surprised me is that HP clearly controls the cost of ink cartridges across all retailers, and keeps them very high. On my old printer I just refilled the cartridges at about $2 per refill - appears to be no way to do that with this new unit and a full set of cartridges runs about $70. Ouch.

There are many network features of the printer that seem both hard to use and designed to consume ink. For instance you can scan a photo from the printer and send it to yourself in email - but only via the printer talking to HP's proprietary and ugly web-based photo-sharing service - why not just send to any old SMTP server HP? Probably because when you register with their service on the web and send photos to their site it automatically prints out full page color confirmations on your printer - cha ching for HP.

So the unit works, but it makes me uncomfortable because it really does seem a bunch of marketing people are trying to make the device all about consuming expensive ink.

I wish there was a small all-in-one color laser - that would be the ideal product in this category. Until then this is a relatively cheap throwaway unit we just need to be careful to not use too much with $70 ink refills.

This printer seems well built and solid but the software package that comes with it is terrible!

The software wouldn't SCAN properly and reported memory errors at resolutions over 600dpi. The HP software loads each time you boot the computer and runs in the background and causes other unrelated computer functions to S-L-O-W down (2.6 Ghz Celeron machine with 768 Meg RAM). When shutting the computer down for the night, the HP software would cause it to hang with a message that the HP software was not responding - even during sessions when the HP software wasn't used at all.

I called HP tech support 3 times and worked with them for hours and hours. HP's solution is to uninstall and reinstall the software over and over and over again on each machine on the network.

I returned the machine after 1 week.

I'm really surprised that the inks for HP's new printers are NOT WATER PROOF WHEN DRY. I've owned HP and Epson printers and never run into this problem before. The new HP inks smear easily after they have dried, even if touched with a damp finger. A small water-drop will ruin a page of text or a photographic print. The fact that moisture causes the inks to smear or run make the printers totally unsuitable for business, school work, and for printing photos. I'm very disappointed and intend to return my printer if my local store will take it back. I think that the HP advertising for these printers, including the product information provided to Amazon for this site, is deceptive because the literature doesn't inform the customer that the inks remain water-soluble and nonpermanent after drying. In fact HP's advertising highlights how long-lasting photographic prints are because the ink colors resist fading and color change. This is a great printer otherwise, however this ink problem is a fatal flaw. My advise is don't buy this printer.

Here is the text from HP tech support confirming this problem:

"On 12/8/06 9:44 PM
