Excerpt: When we reviewed HP's Photosmart 2610 in What's New, Shopper March 2004, our main reservation was its price. At the time it cost £278, which we felt was a little high, so we awarded it four stars. However, the price of the 2610 has dropped to £200, making it the cheapest fax device here. While there is no ADF, this MFP still has an impressive specification.
Excerpt: The specifications of this recently launched multifunction device from Hewlett-Packard are biased towards creative users. It doesn't skimp on business functions, though, so corporate buyers should keep reading. It's usual for scanners on cheaper multifunction devices to be basic, but the 2610's will scan at up to 4,800dpi in 48-bit colour. The front panel has slots for 11 memory card formats, and a Pictbridge USB port.
Excerpt: Combining a printer and scanner into one unit doesn't just save space - working together, the two elements offer a host of extra functions, such as photocopying and faxing. HP's PhotoSmart 2610 does all this, and you can also connect it directly to your network. The 2610 is nicely designed. Its LCD screen tilts upwards, making it easier to read. The printer is also easy to setup and install, and its menu system is simple to follow.
