Conclusion: The HP Photosmart 8150 is faster than most standard or photo ink jets, and its overall output quality is better than most as well. But what really distinguishes it is kiosk-style features for direct printing, with options to crop, sharpen, adjust brightness, apply digital flash, and more.
Pros: Output quality is at the high end of the scale for ink jets. LCD for previewing photos. Kiosk-style direct-print features with cropping, sharpening, and more.
Cons: Graphics show banding in default mode. Plain paper pages with nearly full coverage tend to curl slightly.
