By Brian Asquith on September 9, 2007
I figured the price of this was a little too good to be true and having only had it for a couple of weeks I'm beginning to think I was right. Bought it as a temporary printer for a homeoffice to be replaced somewhere in the nearish future - alas I'm already looking to replace it. Currently trying to run the scanner to see how good it is and alas I'm getting a "USB Not Connected" error even though it is connected as I can print. In draft mode it prints the pages very quickly which is to be expected but then proceeds to eject them at too high a velocity so they're all over the floor...couldn't HP incorporate a brake on the spooling when ejecting the page. Have a bad feeling about this printer, going by the other cautionary reviews here you might be better placed to spend a few more dollars and go with something a little more substantial/trustworthy. I won't be buying another one that's for sure.

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 C4280 has been in my home office for ten months now. I've got the software loaded on three laptops ranging in age from 4 years to six months old; all of which are running Windows XP. We've been using it for work, personal and school projects without any problems.

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.

Verified Purchase
I just bought this printer after using a lexmark and having nothing but problems since I upgraded to Vista. This works wonderfully. You can print, scan, copy by just using the buttons on the printer. You can even insert your memory card from your digital camera into a slot and print right from there. I have had no problems whatsoever with this printer. Just be sure to read what version of Windows it supports as I do not think it supports Windows 2000.

I am an Amazon junkie, but I never write reviews. However, I was compelled to write a review for this product because of what I consider to be extremely unfair reviews about it. I have never been an HP fan. And the only reason was because of hear say. What kept me away was people constantly saying that HP ink is too expensive. I've used Canon, Brother, Epson and all with much satisfaction. So it was was great reluctance that I purchased this printer. But it was an emergency so I settled. It was the fist time I made a purchase without reading the reviews first. However, when I came home with the printer and logged onto Amazon and read the reviews, I was horrified and was planning on taking it back the next day. However, I was unable to take it back and when my new office desk arrived from Amazon, I decided to set up the printer and give it a try.

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.
