The C8180 multifunctional printer is an excellent choice for photo enthusiasts. It prints high-quality text and photos at a heavy price: the printer is s...l...o...w. If you always choose quality over speed, the c8180 will be a worthwhile addition to your digital toolshed.
The low price of the HP Officejet J5780 makes up for some drawbacks, including slow print speeds and lackluster text prints. We recommend spending a little more for the competition from Canon.
The HP 1610 all-in-one is well suited for an individual or a family that will use color scanning and copying only occasionally.
Whether you work from home, in a small office, or with varied home printing, scanning, faxing, and copying needs, this all-in-one takes care of business.
The HP LaserJet 3015 does the trick for students and families, but small businesses can do better with a different printer.
The HP OfficeJet 6310 offers lots of features to home users but falls short in the face of its competition. There are better all-in-ones for your home office.
The HP Photosmart C5180 is a perfectly acceptable photo all-in-one, but you can get more features and faster print speeds for the same amount of money.
The HP OfficeJet 4315 does it all, but does it slowly and not very well. It's a decent choice if you need a cheap all-in-one on hand for those "just in case" moments, but if you print even semiregularly, you're better off spending a little bit more for a better all-in-one printer.
The HP OfficeJet 5610 is affordable and provides most of the home-office basics, but it doesn't stand out from the crowd of better-equipped multifunctions.
This capable multifunction cuts corners on convenience, but the $99 price is right.
