Summary: HP has packed a lot of features into this little printer. It's small enough to be out of the way at home and easy to take along with you to a wedding, party or even on vacation. The 4.8" LCD touchscreen allows you to do more with your photos before printing them, and the instantly dry output is...
Pros: 4.8, Fold-down LCD and carrying handle, optional battery, Fast - 71 seconds for 4, Can perform a number of operations directly on photos, Acceptable quality at 4800 x 1200 optimized
Summary: For $149, the HP Photosmart A636 offers pretty-good print quality, and we like the built-in touchscreen and editing capabilities. If you're on a budget, we recommend this standalone photo printer.
Excerpt: HP's Photosmart A636 is the only mini-photo printer here to use inkjet rather than dye sublimation technology. It's also the only inkjet that takes a single three-colour print cartridge rather than individual ink tanks. HP supplies an 'introductory' cartridge in order to get you started.
