Excerpt: One other amazing thing is that the printer head is attached to the ink cartridge so I didn’t have to worry about clogging up the head and looking for an expensive head replacement. I’ve also tried printing out photos straight from my memory card, and the pictures came out great. My only concern is that there is no tray for printed pages, so you really have to catch the prints else they will fall on top of the unprinted paper.
Summary: Great product! Fantastic value! I especially like the fact that you can print photos directly from your camera card, without going thru the computer. The only problem was that I had to send to HP for a new driver and software program since I have Vista on my computer, but the directions were included in the package and I had my free program in 2 days. Prints great pictures and scans and copies are also clear and legible.
Summary: The product I received was exactly as describe. HOWEVER, It did not state what it can't do and that was work off my exsisting Kodak program! Now Kodak is advertizing against this product for half the price for the product AND cheeper copies. Had to do over I would have bought Kodak. Thanks for asking and can we do anything about the Kodak program with the HP???
Summary: The printer is wonderful, but the CD that it comes with does not support Windows Vista, you have to go online to HP and download the drivers, if you do not understand that it is kind of confussing, and also I receicved it with no cartiages, but Overtock to care of the problem. It has really good pring quility and is pretty easy to figure out how to do the scanner as I had never done that before. for a home printer I would recommened it to anyone. Thanks!
HP Photosmart All-in-One: Cheap to buy, expensive to maintain - Stay away!

Summary: This 'all in one printer' is certainly a popular choice for a home office solution but is it any good? We have had ours for almost 3 year now. Bought from Argos when on offer at £39.99 (should have been £59.99) we were very happy with the price. We were also happy that it was a HP as it was a well recognised brand. This printer/scanner/copier was well packaged when it arrived and came with all the necessery cables/wires etc. to get started straight away.
Summary: I got this printer with my new computer and I am really please with it. Its a smart black printer that will sit neatly on a computer shelf. Its very easy to set up and the included CD walks you through the installation process to calibrate the printer heads and the scanner for the best possible results. It is a very quiet machine and I barely noticed it printing the documents I requested. The print is crisp and clean and the colours are nice and sharp.
