After a long wait, the day finally came. I got my hands on one of these beautiful devices (you know, it’s really three devices in one!). I’m talking about, of course, the HP Deskjet F380 printer/scanner/copier. So without further ado, I present thee the unboxing and set-up pics.

So this is the box. I especially like the colors. Very web 2.0.

Hpunbox2
A knife is a must when opening a box. This one has some blood on it from stabbing the guy in front of me in line.

Hpunbox3
Cuts like butter?

Hpunbox4
I tell you: no one can make a box more exciting than HP. I mean, what ARE all those things?

Hpunbox5
Oh hey, a registration card. This might come in handy. Free tech support and special offers you say, for free?

Hpunbox6
I wonder if I can put this bag over my head…

Hpunbox7
Yep, a lot of tape here. Luckily it’s the non-sticky kind.

Hpunbox8
Must… fondle… gadget…

Hpunbox9
Of course you put the power cables in the ink tray, that’s obvious!

Hpunbox10
You could almost see my crotch.

Hpunbox11
So this is the multi-touch display, now with a glass surface. It’s a whopping 14 inches, and scans with a resolution of 1200 x 2400 dpi! Yeah I don’t know what that means either, but I’m not impressed.

Hpunbox12
At least it’s smaller than the “other” printer (which doesn’t even scan).

Hpunbox13
I don’t know whether I should cry, or try strangling myself with the power cord… does it even matter? It would still be too short!

Hpunbox14
Well, the desk is certainly less cluttered.

Hpunbox15
Even though the latest drivers are almost a year old, they were still not included on the CD. This thing has to sell like xmas-lights around xmas (meaning it sells a lot, not just around xmas).

Hpunbox16
Don’t worry, the software is a Universal Binary, even if it’s powered by Installer VISE.

This was not meant as a review, but if you want to be the cool kid on the block with a 3-in-1 device the size of a printer/scanner/copier, I can tell you that it does a pretty good job. No really, it’s decent.

    Hey, I’ve got one of those! It’s actually a really old one; I bought mine when they were first introduced. Really useful, though I’m looking to move towards a laser printer. Ink cartridges just cost too much when compared to laser toners.

    I hear you Marvin. This one is for my parents, as I’ll be taking my own laser printer and scanner with me once I find a new apartment 😉 The ink for this model is actually pretty cheap though, compared to other models and makes. And toners sure ain’t cheap. Of course they last longer, so I guess maybe they end up being cheaper in the end.
