If needing a low-capacity, all-in-one unit for printing, scanning and copying needs, the HP Deskjet F4180 could be a decent option. With acceptable speeds and resolutions, it will make at-home printing an easy task and a convenience, and it's hard to find a more affordable unit on the market. However, the high cost of HP F4180 ink will be a major turnoff and could become an expense quickly.
Weighing 13.5 pounds, this inkjet unit is quite compact. With dimensions of 16.76x7.11x14.5 inches, it is fairly average size. Compatible with Windows and Mac, it will adapt to the office no matter what operating system is used. The F4180 is very versatile printing cohesively with letter, legal, executive, A2 and card sized paper. Many types of paper print effortlessly as well—including photo, plain, envelope, label, card, transparency and iron-on transfers.
Upon purchasing this unit, two HP F4180 ink cartridges are included. One is a black Deskjet F4180 ink, yielding 190 pages, and the color printer ink—which contains cyan, magenta and yellow—yields 165 pages. A third, optional HP F4180 ink cartridge is also available for photo printing. This takes the place of the black printer ink when in use. With resolutions of 1200x2400 dpi when printing monochrome and 4800x1200 dpi when printing in color, it's hard to find a problem with these tanks—other than their high price tag, that is.
When it comes to the HP F4180, user reviews are pretty mixed. While many find its quality to be outstanding and its speed to be satisfactory, many are disappointed with the inkjet unit. Setup problems, paper jams and slow scanning speeds are all cons mentioned again and again by users, but the main problem seems to lie in the price of replacing Deskjet F4180 ink, even though less expensive options are available from third party vendors.
