HP A826 Photosmart Compact Photo Printer
4 January 2010
Excerpt: HP’s A826 Compact Photo Printer is designed as an easy and fun-to-use, space-saving photo printer. Featuring a nice color touch screen and a housing that looks like something from Wall-E, it at least accomplishes that goal. How is it otherwise? The basic specs are: The box includes the printer, AC power cord, a stylus, CD, quick-start guide, basic users manual and a handful of other documents.
Pros: Compact footprint, Easy to use, Good print quality
Excerpt: Are there times when you just want a photo printed from your digital camera. You would like to forget about going to your computer, booting it up, copying the photo off the camera, setting up the printer for photos, and then printing it on a full page printer. Of course, you will make multiple tires to get it right too, because something always gets screwed up.
Summary: The HP Photosmart A826 is a great choice for beginning photographers who want to print their digital photos as easily as possible. The printer's case design could use some improvement for greater ease of handling, and dark prints appear a little dull; but overall, the A826 is an attractive, fun device made just for its intended consumer group, hobbyists and scrapbookers.
