Summary: very happy with the SHIPPING . Item ARRIVED ON TIME as stated. This is my second HP Photosmart A516 Compact Photo Printer. My first one gave out after 7 years of ALMOST daily use. I still can't believe how many photos I printed... I've probably printed more 10 thousands pics on my previous little printer. I hope this 2nd little guy don't let me down. I would recommend this printer to anyone .
Summary: At the time I ordered this printer, I did not realize I was purchasing an 8 year old edition of the printer. The latest Microsoft OS identified with it's instructions is XP. Thanks goodness the HP website acknowledges this could happen and had a driver to download to make it operational with a PC. Functionally, it does a little better job than my HP 1300 series printer. All in all, it's okay.
Easy and Clear Printing Makes for Easy Albums and Scrapbooking
19 February 2013
Summary: I love this printer! The monitor on top is great for actually seeing what you're printing. It's nice to be able to make photos in full, half, or quarter sizes, especially for scrapbooking. The pictures print clearer and nicer than CVS's instant print kiosk. Nearly equal to 1-hour photo processing. The only downside is that ink runs out quickly, making for an expensive printer when used frequently.
Summary: The printer is portable, the print quality is excellent and the printer itself is user-friendly. The printer uses an HP 110 cartridge that can usually print about 100 4x6s before needing to be replaced. The buyer should note, this printer only prints on 4x6 paper. The only drawback with the A516 is it can be slow if more than five pictures are scheduled to print at once. An easy solution, have another printer to use in tandem.
Summary: I bought one of these 2 years ago at Christmas for my wife. We have used it on and off since then. Though the printer is a little slow to print [about 2 minutes to print at best quality], the prints are quite nice and the HP ink is waterproof so the prints really do hold up. There is nothing better than taking pics at an event and being able to load the camera's SD card into the printer and print them then and there.
