Great printers sometimes come in small packages. The HP Deskjet 1180C is reliable and basic, with simple features and a single function. This unit relies on advanced inkjet technology and a drop-on-demand printer ink system for quality that meets any professional standard. The 1180C is compact and a bit on the slow side, so it will only work in offices with limited daily tasks. Also, because it only offers USB and Parallel ports, only a single computer can be connected.
With a monthly duty cycle of 5,000 pages, the 1180C is clearly designed for frequent use, but the slow speed of 8 pages per minute will certainly hinder production in a fast-paced environment. However, what this unit lacks in speed, it makes up for in quality. When printing with the cyan, magenta, yellow and black HP 1180C ink, the maximum resolution that can be achieved is 1200x1200 dpi. The quality of black-and-white documents will max out at 600x600 dpi, which should meet professional standards.
Maintenance costs over the lifetime of this machine should be minimal as only two HP 1180C ink cartridges are required. Though the printer ink yields cannot rival laser printers, the tricolor Deskjet 1180C ink cartridge can render up to 450 pages while the black can yield as many as 830 prints. Standard replacement HP 1180C ink can be purchased from various online vendors, including the manufacturer. An alternative option for consumers with a tight budget is compatible Deskjet 1180C ink that is made by third party companies.
Compatible with all major operating systems, the 1180C offers versatility in the types of paper that are supported, such as envelopes, transparencies and labels. The input tray can hold a maximum of 150 sheets, but the output tray holds less. Overall, this color inkjet unit from HP is an excellent addition to any small office.
