I sometimes can't believe how cheap good printers are these days, and with wireless built as well is just incredible. So simple to install. Insert CD, select install and follow prompts. That simple. The printer takes the wireless settings (SSID, user name and password) from your computer to configure itself. Once complete, the printer is available wirelessly. Printer quality is actually pretty good for a printer this cheap. Lets face it, for £50 you are not going to get amazing print quality, but it is good. Perfect for simple home use.

If you are a card crafter or scrapbooker, this printer has all the features you would want. The ability to print on card (up 300gsm), paper, acetate and vellum, as well as photo paper. You can choose to have a border or not which is always a help; the print quality is excellent and if it has just one failing, that is that it's very heavy on ink, which is not cheap. However, a search of the internet can usually find special offers, although I haven't found any compatible ink cartridges for this printer yet.

The setup was very easy and quick, just following picture and word prompts, and you can choose whether to connect via a USB or wireless. There isn't a tray to receive printed items, this doesn't bother me as the printer stands on a unit so they just drop onto the unit top, but it could be a problem for some. Changing the cartridges is the easiest I have had in a printer. The scanner/copier is quick and easy. So, all in all, I'm very happy with this printer.HP Photosmart C4780 All-in-One Printer

This is a great, easy to use printer. Once installed (easy in itself) you can be in any other room in the house &, as long as the printer is switched on, print what you like. The quality of printed text is extremely good, the pictures are exceptional, with choices of draft, normal & best. It is very economical regarding the cartridges, printing over 100 colour pictures on normal. As someone who is not particularly computer-literate, this is a good printer me to understand. A friend of the family saw some recently printed pictures & thought they were as good as those done on a professional printer. For someone who is limited on space for wires & connections, this wireless printer, copier & scanner is excellent! Five Stars from this household!!!

I have just purchased the HP C4780 All in one Printer etc and was over the moon with how easy it was to set up. I have not long been using a Computer and therefore
am hesitant when trying something New. The delivery plus inks arrived within 5 day's of me placing the order and it took me no more than 20 minutes to install. However, I would rcomend that to have a smooth installation you disable your Fire
Wall and Antivirus system to and this will help to quickly install.The printing
was great after I carried out the tests that was asked of me. I can't believe the
clarity of the pictures it printed and they even supply sample Photo paper to get
you going.It's much faster than my previos printer and I have to say the Ink is less expensive which helps when your retired. All in all I would reccomend this model to any novice user and the price for the quality was spot on. Thank HP.

I've just received my printer today. This was the second as the first had a smashed scanner glass when it was delivered but as usual Amazon have replaced it very quickly (only my second faulty item in a lot of years).

This scanner is amazingly value at this price. You get a high quality printer, scanner and wireless functionality (make sure your operating system and computer support it if you want to use this element). Installation was easy with the supplied software, I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate.

This is my first ever review on Amazon and I'm simply doing it as I felt (the current) 3 star rating did not do this printer any justice.

Printing is straightforward and perfectly good for prints on to the sample 10cm x 15cm sample paper, so good I've just order some more see - HP Premium Plus High-Gloss Photo Paper, Bright White, 100 x 150 mm, 280 g/m2, 100 Sheets

The LCD screen is small but perfectly usable and very clear and a great feature on such a good value printer. The card slots will be useful for my wife as she will be able to print off images without having to touch any PC software :)

Very easy to set up, prints at better quality than the online service from Kodak with better defintion of colours and shadows.

Bit noisy, but not too intrusive if only doing small print runs.

Scanner works very well using the scan button on the printer and wirelessly sending to computer

If you run windows xp, think twice. The first printer and it's replacement (thank you Amazon) both had the same problem.
The scanner would not funtion throught the normal method and left a white rectangle in the screen which filled with all the work you closed down. HP's answer was to hope I would go away, the only solution was to send back the second one and replace it with a Lexmark Interact S605 (thank you again Amazon). Worked perfecly, instantly, a vastly superior product at a fabulous price.
