Gadget Stimulus Plan Day 8: HP Photosmart C6380 Wireless Printer, Scanner

c6380_hpWe’re trying to close your gadget deficit while the economy’s in the dumps with the Gadget Stimulus Plan. Today we’re giving away an HP Photosmart C6380 that can print and scan wirelessly.

The Photosmart C6380 is a really slick device that interacts really well with mobile devices. You can print and scan from any computer on your network, scan documents directly onto a thumb drive and print photos directly from your camera’s memory card. With HP iPrint you can print directly from your iPhone or iPod Touch.


I bought the Photosmart 6380 as a Christmas present for myself and have been very pleased with its features and performance. Since it’s wireless it doesn’t clutter my desk and I really like its dual paper trays. The main tray is big enough for standard letter-sized paper and the smaller one is built especially for the most common photo paper sizes. This means I don’t have to remove and replace paper as often as I used to.

The Photosmart C6380 can scan images at up to 4800dpi optically, or 19200dpi with enhancements. It can print black and white documents at up to 33 pages per minute.


The HP Photosmart C6380 retails for $199.99 and is probably the best value in the Photosmart All-in-One lineup. It’s often on sale for between $129 to $149 from HP, Amazon and other retailers.
