HP Photosmart C6380 Review

by Anne R.- Advisor for

The HP Photosmart C6380 review says it all. If you are looking for quality photos and text output this all in one printer has it. This multi function all in one inkjet printer got speed while providing excellent printouts. Though it is suggested for both home and office use this all in one printer is much better for home users. They can enjoy its quality printing and scanning with vibrant and wonderful colors having a 6 color ink cartridges. Setting up the HP Photosmart C6380 is easy compared to other wireless all in one printers.

It has a 2.4 color inch LCD with various buttons for printing and photo editing, 5 way navigational pad and a multicard reader. It has a USB port, Ethernet, WiFi and an optional Bluetooth connection.

It has two input trays that accommodate standard paper and another smaller tray for photo paper. It can print at an average speed of 21.4 ppm of black text and 19.4 ppm of color with the usual graphics. Photo printing is superb and prints at an average speed of 27.9 seconds for 4 x 6 photo sized paper while A4 sized photos takes more than a minute to print.

The C6380 produces quality photo print outs that is far better compared to other inkjet all in one printers producing above quality photo prints that are water and scratch resistant. Its scanning ability performs well picking up every detail allowing the user to scan from their computer, memory cards and USB sticks. Its standalone photocopier can print at a great speed as well.

One great feature of this all in one printer is its Photosmart Essential software where no other printer of its league has come closer. This feature allows most users to edit and change their photos easier at it is quite simple to use.

HP Photosmart C6380 review shows how this all in one printer falls short in its features. It has no fax modem as well as an automatic feeder in spite of the presence of two input trays that could have made paper handling a lot easier and for users to have more ease in printing. Photo prints are of quality but it may not satisfy photographers. Home users of course will appreciate its quality photo printing.

It also lacks a CD/DVD direct printing which could have been a useful feature for this all in one printer. It takes time for it to warm up and starts slower but once it starts printing it gains it speed. Another complaint is the noise it creates when printing.

HP Photosmart C6380 review on its performance as an all in one printer is very much appreciated by home users. Basically it is well loved for its high quality photo output. Others complain that it has expensive ink and have smaller ink cartridges. One of the points raised by users is its short life span which is as low as 6 ? 8 months up to 14 months until this all in one printer suddenly stops working. Most users as well are complaining of HPs customer service of not being helpful in solving their problems and issues regarding the printer.

Overall HP Photosmart C6380 is a good printer that offers fast speed and quality printing. Generally it is recommended for home use rather than for office use.
