After a couple of weeks use I am beginning to dislike this printer with a vengence - HP are obviously focusing on how to reach the market to sell cartridges without focusing on the quality of the printer using them - HP used to deliver a quality printer - now I would have to question their business ethics....this printer device is junk. 0 Stars.
OK...after another week of use the printer when the printer goes in to idle mode it is no longer being detected by the pc. This requires a turning off/on of the printer to have it recognised as a new device on the USB. There is too much tomfoolery with this thing - I'm now looking for a full refund from HP, I'll buy something more expensive but hopefully not sure a bear to use. Interesting how amazon won't allow you to change your initial star rating.
The scanner has a couple of modes. The document mode had a couple of surprises. When scanning a document from the newspaper, the document mode added typos that were not on the original. It also changed hand printed notes in the margin into a typeface. Now I just scan documents with the photographic mode to keep them looking like the originals. In photographic mode, the scanner software offers some ability to edit and manipulate the image.
Only in the past month have we started buying HP photographic paper and using the C4280 to print pictures from the digital camera. I'm amazed at the results produced by this ink jet printer! I had retouched some old photos of my parents and had them printed as 8x10's at a local camera store with a good reputation. The C4280 with photo paper produced prints that looked every bit as good as the expensive camera store versions.
The printer takes two ink cartridges - one color and one black. Refill ink cartridges are available in "regular" and "XL" sizes. The cartridge modes (74 and 75) are readily available. I've seen the refills here on Amazon, Office Max, Staples, BrandSmart, and Costco - so, they're not hard to come by.
The C4280 has been an excellent personal printer (copier, scanner) for me. Frankly, I'm shocked by all the bad reviews on this board, but I am not trying to run it with Mac, Vista OS, or making it the primary printer for a busy office.
So far this printer fits the bill - does everything simply at a decent price. I also bought one for my nephew. The print output looks good and is quick enough for individual use. Simple copying is easy - push one button for B&W or one for color. I don't know how well it will last, as we just started using it.
Downside - There is no separate output tray, so it is easy for printed papers to spit into the paper tray and get jumbled and possibly cause a jam. If you want to walk away during a large print job, this is not the printer for you.
Also, the inks are very expensive. A set of ink cartridges (large capacity) cost almost as much as the printer. True photo quality prints also require a different ink cartridge.
I must say it is FLAWLESS!!!!!!. It is the best printer I have ever had. I enjoy the ease of use and the simplicity of the product. I had it out of the box and up and running in 15 minutes. I have not even looked at the manual (except for the installation) and I've been using it without any problems.
I'd like to address some of the problems I've seen people commenting on with this printer and I have to say that a) I think some of you do not read instructions, b) some of you have not done your research and c) some of you are just plain cheap and want everything for nothing.
a) Many people have complained about the scanner not working and problems with getting the printer to print and issues with the software. But I have to ask. Did you connect the USB cable BEFORE or AFTER you installed the software? If you connected the USB cable BEFORE installing the software then that would explain your predicament.Read more ›

I bought it in 2009. Don't use it often, it's for personal use, not work, but it still works! The only thing I don't like is that it wants to calibrate every time I turn it on. Read morePublished 1 month ago by L. Raphael
