The HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-one Printer is just about $50. For this money, it is hard to complain about this HP printer. This HP is a multifunctional printer which does a great job on monochrome and color graphics. You will have your photos printed out with excellent quality as well.

Guide Review – HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One Printer
The Deskjet F4280 is a good choice for users who are looking for a printer which is suitable for casual home use, especially when its price is really reasonable. Because of the low price, it lacks a fax, an ADF, an LCD screen as well as a large paper tray. However, you will find its ink lights ( which show you the amount of ink remaining ) really helpful. Its weight is just about 10 pounds, but it does its job really well.
At draft mode, this HP printer can print up to 26 pages / minute. When switching to normal quality, the first monochrome page can come out after 28 seconds, and each following page takes around 8 seconds. You will find large fonts ( such as 72 point ) still have an excellent look under magnifying class. Edges and lines will be crisp and sharp. It takes about one minute and thirty nine seconds for the HP Deskjet F4280 to finish printing three pages which contain many colorful graphics. The printer uses only 2 ink tanks but the colors are remarkably nuanced. A 4 x 6 colorful photo takes about 28 seconds to come out. The greens are true to the original. However, you may find other colors a bit less vivid than the original. Using “photo optimizer” can improve this.
About scanning, you may have to wait because it takes up to 1:10 for a color graphic page to be scanned. It expects you to use “Photosmart”. In case you do not use that software suite, changing options ( for example: scanning to a PDF) can become tricky.
- The price is very inexpensive
- It can give sharp prints, even when you print large-sized pages
- There are some muted colors when it comes to photo printing
- Its scan speed is quite slow
