The HP Photosmart C7280 ink printer is an easy-to-use All In One that offers scanning, copying, and faxing functionalities apart from printing. The machine costs in the range of $150 - $220 and offers very good value for money. The device comes with an automatic document feeder and a duplexer; features that one would normally associate with an office AIO. The C7280 offers these and other useful features including wireless networking. The Photosmart C7280 promises printing speeds of 34 ppm and 33 ppm for monochrome and color prints, respectively. The multi-card reader can access data from CompactFlash, SD, MMC, XD, and MemoryStick. You can plug in PictBridge-capable devices via the USB port and print directly without using the PC. Photo printing is not a strong suite with this machine. The C7280 has a duty cycle of 3000 pages per month. It is a good choice for those that run their business from home and are better off investing in an efficient AIO instead of dedicated devices for various functions.
The HP C7280 inkjet printer weighs 24.3 lbs; its dimensions are 9.76 x 17.48 x 17.72 in. Black and white prints can be viewed at a maximum resolution of 1200 dpi and color prints at 4800dpi x 1200dpi. The HP C7280 ink printer follows the CMYK palette for its color inks and uses six ink cartridges with cyan, magenta, yellow, light cyan, light magenta, and black colors. The primary input tray can hold up to 100 pages at a time. A separate tray holds 20 sheets for 4 x 6 in and 5 x 7 in photographs.
Apart from USB, wired ethernet, and wireless 802.11g, this multifunction device also offers optional Bluetooth connectivity. The flatbed scanner offers a maximum resolution of 4800 dpi. It does not scan 35 mm film, but this is not a functionality that a small office owner is going to miss. The Scan Pro scanning software includes OCR capabilities enabling users to edit scans. The scanned images can be saved as JPEGs, TIFFs, and PDFs. The copier offers a maximum size enhancement of 400% and a reduction of 50%. You can even scan using a web browser via a network.
The HP Photosmart C7280 inkjet printer works with both PC and Mac operating systems. In conclusion, the HP Photosmart C7280, with its features and standalone functionality, can be called a good general purpose AIO meant for home users and small business owners.
