Excerpt: Hewlett-Packard Development Co., www.hp.com $130 street Output quality ranges from just short of very good to just short of excellent. Faster than most AIOs in its price class. No built-in fax modem. No ADF. The HP PSC 1315 All-in-One is one of the better AIO choices in its price range, with relatively fast print speed (with standard cartridge) and good print quality. It also handles scanning and copying reasonably well but is limited by the lack of a fax modem and ADF.
Conclusion: The HP's advertised print speeds are up to 17 pages per minute in black and 12 ppm in color, with resolution up to "4,800 by 1,200 optimized dpi on photo paper with 1,200 dpi input" -- meaning, as with other HP inkjets, you can force the printer to produce maximum resolution if you want to wait forever for output, but it's smarter to settle for the "best" quality mode, whose PhotoREt image enhancement makes it hard to believe it's technically just 600 dpi.
Pros: Last year's most consumer-friendly printer/scanner/copier gets a price cut, performance boost, and PictBridge port, Very good print quality, even without extra-cost photo cartridge
Cons: Don't expect high print speeds; do expect high consumable costs, Pushbutton copier function shaved the edge of some originals
Summary: The HP PSC 1315 provides adequate photo-quality prints and document printouts, as well as very good scanning capabilities. It has an attractive price tag, and a PictBridge port, but lacks separate print cartridges for each colour.
Pros: PictBridge support, great software
Cons: No individual print cartridges, slow print times
