Conclusion: The HP Photosmart 475 produces true photo-quality output in multiple formats, including 4 by 6, 5 by 7, and 4 by 12 inches. Plus, it offers a wealth of features, including an internal hard disk that can store hundreds of photos. Its only drawback is that photos smudge if they get wet.
Pros: Prints photos at up to 5 by 7 inches and panoramas at 4 by 12 inches. Prints from computers, digital cameras, and memory cards. Internal hard disk can store hundreds of photos. Battery option available.
Cons: Photos are tacky immediately after printing. Even after drying, they can smudge if they get wet. !
Excerpt: At first it was enough for photo printer makers to add a portable model to their mix. Now that most companies sell one, a little more creativity is required to separate one from the pack. HP has stepped up to the challenge with the Photosmart 475 ($279), a.k.a. GoGo, an unabashedly cute tagalong that prints not only the requisite 4 x 6 prints but 5 x 7 enlargements too. GoGo went a step further, adding 1.5 gigabytes of internal storage that can pack up to 1,000 images.
Pros: Portable; supports various size formats; presents slideshows
Cons: Average print quality; cheap construction; expensive
Summary: HP's £199 Photosmart 475 delivers easy printing and picture storage on the go, and several unique features. Print quality doesn't match a lot of the competition, and the price tag is offputting, but this is still a good buy.
Excerpt: The HP Photosmart 475 is the most expensive device in the group, but it does pack in the features. Top of the bill is 1.5GB of on-board storage. This may seem an odd addition, but does make sense if you'll use it in a group environment. For example, if you're at a party and like someone else's photos, you can copy them to your printer. Small memory card full? Empty it onto the printer.
Excerpt: HP set the standard for 6 x 4in inkjet photo printers with the Photosmart 375 and now it wants to do the same with a 7 x 5in format in the 475. There's more to this printer than an increase in print size, however. Inside its shiny silver and white plastic shell is a 1.5GB hard disk on which you can store photographs for printing later. You can even burn them directly to CD from the printer by connecting a CD burner to the Photosmart's USB port.
Conclusion: Facile à transporter, munie d’une batterie et autonome, la Photosmart 475 de HP satisfait à toutes les exigences d’une imprimante photo portable. En plus, elle produit des sorties de bonne qualité.
