The HP Photosmart C4580 is an all-in-One Printer, Scanner, Copier, but unlike other multi function printers, this one focuses more on photo printing. It doesn't have small office functions such as fax support or an automatic document feeder for scanner/copier tasks, but it does well in meeting the varies use at home and produces beautiful glossy photo prints. It has been praised by critics for its sleek design and usable control panel. This piece comes bundled with its own photo-editing software as well as text recognition software that converts scanned text documents into editable text. This printer, in addition to USB, also supports a wi-fi connection. It also can print images from its 4/1 memory card reader. Another amazing feature is the webpage interface: its status and ink levels can be monitored from any computer on the network.
