A touch-sensitive control panel and wireless networking capabilities sets the HP Photosmart C4780 apart from other all-in-one printers. Its low price of $100-$130 may make this unit seem like a great deal, but high prices on Photosmart C4780 ink cartridges will quickly empty consumers' wallets. Due to this, the C4780 is recommended for only home users that desire to produce nothing higher than a low-volume output.
Standard HP C4780 ink cartridges are so low-yielding that they would only work for users who print very infrequently, perhaps a couple times a month. Even high-capacity tanks that last 600 pages for black printer ink and 450 pages for color are expensive to replace. This is especially true for users who have the intention to print mainly photos and color graphic documents.
Printer ink resolutions and speeds for the C4780 are average compared to other multifunction inkjet units. Black HP C4780 ink has a maximum resolution of 4800x1200 dpi and can print up to 29 pages per minute. Color Photosmart C4780 ink also has a resolution of 4800x1200 dpi but slower printing speeds of 23 pages per minute. Full 10x15 color photos using HP C4780 ink print off quickly in less than 30 seconds with lab quality detail.
This inkjet device's limited paper handling options like small output/input trays of 80 and 15-sheets, respectively, make it inadequate for high-volume work. Also, the design of the trays makes this machine bulky and awkward to fit into tight spaces. This, added with expensive tanks, causes the C4780 to seem like a rip-off despite its cheap initial price. The HP Photosmart C4780 can really only be recommended to consumers who are impressed by its new touch screen feature and don't expect to print a lot.
