HP Photosmart A646 Compact Printer

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The HP Photosmart A646 Compact Printer is a worthy successor to the Editors' Choice A636 in many ways, but it falters badly on ease of use.
  • Pros: Touch screen with generally well-designed menus. Prints 5-by-7s, 4-by-6s, and panoramas up to 4 by 12 inches.
  • Cons: Speed is acceptable but slow. Messages on the printer LCD and the approach to printing from a computer can be confusing.

Review: HP Photosmart A646 Compact Photo Printer

9 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Printers are boring you say? You’ve obviously never fired up an A646. Besides being not much bigger than a lunch box, this pipsqueak of a portable pumps out gorgeous, vibrant 5 x 7 pictures (or panoramas) via your camera’s Bluetooth, USB, or memory card connection.
  • Pros: Surprisingly sharp, vivid print quality for such a petite package. A lobotomized hamster could set this thing up. Reasonably agile touchscreen for purikura -style doodles. Bluetooth, SD slot cut the cords.
  • Cons: No battery, so be on the lookout for outlets “in the field.” Prints only on pricey photo paper.

HP Photosmart A646 review

  • Summary: Is the HP Photosmart A646 the snapshot printer for you? Weigh the trade-offs. It falls a little short on flesh tones and ink costs. On the other hand, it lets you print on more sizes of paper than the competition, and it offers lots of fun, on-board editing options.
