4.0 out of 5 stars Print me happy., 15 May 2008
This review is from: HP Photosmart C4280 All-In-One Printer - 30 ppm, USB, 4800 dpi (Electronics)
My old all-in-one recently became unreliable so it was time for a new one. As a few of my products are already HP I thought this would be a good match. :)

I like the design of the unit... it's certainly smaller than my old all-in-one so progress is being made in that area. It also comes with much more functionality. The little in-built screen is great, plus it has memory-card slots for most types right there.

Installation was smooth on my Vista desktop (also HP). The only thing I was unhappy about was the fact that a USB cable for this printer was not supplied!!! Luckily I dug out the cable for my old all-in-one and it fitted so it saved me a trip to the shops, but I do think that it should either be made extremely clear that one isn't included (and then we could order one at the same time) or HP should get real and include one.

The print quality is very good but for everyday printing I like to use the "economical printing" option which makes the printer explode in a fit of quick printing and saves me a bit of ink. It's still extremely readable too... I don't think most people would be able to notice it was a lesser quality.

The self-alignment is a good idea too. It prints a page which it then asks you to place in the scanner so it can test itself. This is much better than me having to read an alignment sheet and select what I think is the best option.
