Summary: This printer works fine, but the ink that came with it only printed about one third of the first photo. Very poor for this company to send out a product that the consumer is not able to use. I also sent a similar message to the company but have received NO response.
Summary: I purchased the Photosmart Inkjet printer because I thought it would be a good alternative to taking the film, dropping it off, then going back a few days later or an hour later and picking up your pictures. Also, I had the opportunity to use one during an art show that I was involved in and loved it. I just had to have it. Then, after purchasing the Photosmart, I realized I needed a new ink cartridge for it. The ink is very expensive and so is the paper.
Summary: The print quality on these newer HP printers almost had me running out to buy one. They truly do make some beautiful prints. However, I got looking further and now I would say run far away. Not just from this one, but from all newer HP printers. Why? The ink cartridges. A few years ago there was a big uproar when HP started dropping the amount of ink in their cartridges.
Excerpt: HP Photosmart 385 Photo Printer ~ I have now had my HP Photosmart 385 printer for about 4 years and it still prints like a brand new machine, I am so impressed with it that I thought I should write a review. Packaging ~ The printer comes in a box of about 12" x 8" deep and about 10" high so is easily portable. Contents ~ The contents or the box are HP Photosmart 385 printer. HP 343 Tri-colour Inkjet print catridge, (7ml). HP bt400 Bluetooth Wireless Adaptor.
Pros: Convenient, clear true to colour photos .
Cons: The photos can take 2 - 3 minutes to dry properly .
Excerpt: After having and using this quality printer throughout the last year or so i have found that this was well worth the money and i have been very happy. The HP PhotoSmart 385 is quite compact and very portable as it can be used wireless through USB and bluetooth connections. Its speed is ok but this is to be expected with a quality colour photo printer. The preview screen is the best feature of this printer allowing you to view before you print.
Pros: Compact, portable, wireless, preview screen, easy to use .
Cons: None really, but make sure you dont overpay, £140 is a good price .
Summary: Me ha gustado bastante, la calidad de impresion es muy buena, pero, como he comentado gasta demasiada tinta; aunque este es un problerma muy comun en todas las impresoras. En general la recomiendo. He imprimido fotos de muy buena calidad, de paisajes, de animales, todo tipo de fotos. La velocidad de impresion es muy adecuada, si no tienes demasiada prisa esta muy bien. Si pones la opcion de imprmir a mas velocidad pierde calidad pero es mas rapida la impresion.
