HP Photosmart C6380

 

All the connectivity you'll ever need.

Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, fast printing, great quality, comprehensive scanning methods

Some banding apparent in photos, under-saturated scanning results, Bluetooth is optional

The C6380 one-ups the C5380 in almost all respects, with its only failing being a slight decrease in photo print quality. Overall, the 6380 is a great addition to the networked home.

HP Photosmart C6380

 

An excellent all-in-one printer for the home and small office, the C6380 pairs great photo printouts with an easy to use interface.

Excellent photo-quality prints. Very easy to use. Wireless/Ethernet connectivity. Very quiet during printing.

...and very noisy afterwards. No document feeder.

The C6380 is a versatile, relatively inexpensive all-in-one option for a home or small office. Excellent photo prints and black and white documents make the investment worth it, but do consider the ongoing cost of consumables in the overall package.

HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One review: HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One

 

HP Photosmart C6380 All-in-One

Inexpensive; dual output trays; fast output speed; painless Wi-Fi setup; comprehensive driver software; easy to use; small footprint.

Output quality will not satisfy professional photographers.

The HP Photosmart C6380 is a good fit for beginning photographers who want more than just a simple printer. Its six-ink cartridge bay, and scanning and copying capabilities extend its versatility, and while the output quality suffers a few missteps,...

I was NEVER able to connect thihs wirelessly to my desktop pc even after HP took control of my computer and tried it themselves. EATS through ink. Photo software difficult to use - really hard to import photos in so they could be...

The printhead is a huge problem, I have spent hours trying to get the damn thing working, keeps on coming up with Ink System failure Oxc19x0023. HP replaced my first unit after 4 months of use and now the replacement is doing the same thing, just tried...

Other than using a surprising amount of ink and my wife needing to frequently re-install software to get a wireless connection, no complaints up until a couple of months ago. I started getting a print system error (0xc19a0037). Checked (HP!)...

Generally works well, no problems with wireless conection

Ink hungry, print-head problems, clunky software

After 20 years of buying HP this has stopped my habit. It uses ink about 10 times faster than claimed and now refuses to print unless I clean the printer head every 4 or 5 pages.

Easy to connect wirelessly

Eats ink, needs frequent cleaning

HP Photosmart C6380

 

My printer worked fine when I just got it but it ran out of ink after just no more than 50 pages and the ink is way to expensive when you have to buy it at LEAST once a month. It's pathetic, I just bought new ink and now it isn't even printing, when I...

looks good

Great printer - if you find that when setting up the wireless network the printer cant find your router - it may help to change the channel of the router - it seems the HP doesnt like too much interefence. Took me 2 hours to realise i just needed to...

nicely presented - fits well in small places -prints great and the wireless (when you get it finally set up) is such a treat for a home network of 5 comps.

the flimsly pull out thing to catch the paper - looks like its gonna snap off. If I'd realised about the channel on the router sooner it would have saved me 2 hours. But apart from that its a great printer.
