HP Photosmart D7360 Review
1 December 2006
Conclusion: Like other HP inkjets we've tested, the D7360 provides four print-quality choices: Fast Draft, Fast Normal, Normal, and Best. (A fifth uses the printer's maximum resolution -- equivalent 4,800 by 1,200 dpi tweaking of its 1,200 by 1,200 physical dpi -- to print photos more slowly, and without noticeable improvement, over the Best setting.) We found speed and quality differences between Fast Normal and Normal Normal to be small enough that we stuck with the latter.
Summary: Priced at $299, the D7360 is exceptionally easy to use and has the best software bundle in the business. But, its image quality is merely good, and plain-paper printing is clearly not its strong point.
Pros: Easy to use touch-screen, Intuitive photo printing
Cons: Plain paper printing is not its strong point, Photo prints lacked some detail and had problematic colours
Summary: The HP Photosmart D7360 offers a varied selection of features, great print quality, and fast text prints, but if you need fast photo prints, look elsewhere. Otherwise, this is a decent option for amateur photo hobbyists.
Pros: Fast text prints; low-cost text and photo printing; large touch-screen LCD is very responsive and easy to navigate; individual ink tanks mean less waste; dedicated 4x6 photo tray; built-in memory card slots and PictBridge port; ability to print stills from digital videos; ability to print from an iPod
Cons: Slow 4x6 photo prints; limited photo-enhancement options when printing PC-free; can't sort or print photos by date or range of dates; can't print bordered photos when printing without a PC
Excerpt: Avec sa coque immaculée, ses voyants bleutés la Photosmart D7360 détonne avec l'informatique Windows traditionnelle pour se rapprocher du monde Apple. En l'allumant, elle reste relativement discrète et s'avère opérationnelle quasi-immédiatement, contrairement à ses concurrentes. Testée sous Windows Vista, l'aperçu avant impression nécessite beaucoup de temps (2 mn 30 pour une photo de 5 Mo au format A4) et bloque pour une série de plusieurs photos A4… Sous Mac OS Tiger,...
