1.0 out of 5 stars HP Fail Again, 28 Oct. 2008
This review is from: HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-One CB584A#BEK (Personal Computers)
This was the second HP printer I had which has now failed after six or so months use. In both cases it appears that using non-HP ink cartridges had caused the failure. I refuse to pay the exorbitant prices charged for their ink cartridges and will continue to search for a printer make that is robust enough (honest enough?) to allow generic cartidges to be used.

I will not buy HP again and strongly recommend everyone else do likewise.

One star is too much.

there is NO printer that will be "robust" enough to use compatible cartridges as the real genuine ink contains oil whereas compatible ones contain a watered doing ink solution. printers are not made to take any other ink other than their own, manufactures make it this to recoup the cost of the technology in the printer. For your reasoning this is a TERRIBLE review!!

My objections remain. It should be illegal to sell any gadget which effectively forces you to buy branded consumables. HP should design printers that work with ALL inks, not just the ones that they supply, and charge an honest price for that printer.
