HP's OfficeJet 5510 is an all-in-one colour printer, colour copier, colour scanner, and colour fax machine. This versatile unit is perfect for the home office or small business where space is at a premium. With HP's thermal inkjet print technology, resolutions for both black and colour prints are as high as 1,200 x 1,200, with 4,800 x 1,200 optimized dpi colour printing. Print speeds clock in at 17 ppm for black and 12 ppm for colour (maximum, draft mode; actual speeds will vary).
The 5510 has a standard input capacity of 100 sheets and up to 10 envelopes, with an output capacity of 25 sheets. It accepts a wide variety of originals, including paper (plain, inkjet, photo), envelopes, transparencies, labels, cards, HP premium media, and iron-on transfers. Supported sizes range from 3 by 5 to 8.5 by 14 inches (using the 20 sheet automatic document feeder).
Access features and common tasks through the easy-to-navigate HP Director software. Depending on the capabilities of your HP all-in-one, the HP Director lets you initiate device functions such as scanning, copying, faxing, or unloading images from a digital camera or memory card. You can also use the HP Director to open the HP Gallery to view, modify, and manage the images on your computer.

As new technology finds its way into printers, it slowly filters down from the premium to the budget models. This seems to happen more quickly with HP printers than some other makes and the Photosmart 5510 is a good example of the kind of technology you can now buy for under £60.
This is a long, low machine, with simple and practical lines. The top of the flatbed scanner lifts without problem and the whole scanner section hinges up equally easily to get at the four, independent ink cartridges.
The small, neat control panel is touch-sensitive, with a 60mm touchscreen boarded down either side by three touch buttons. It's very easy to use and has separate indicators for wireless connection and HP’s remote printing ePrint function.
Directly below the control panel is the fold-down front cover, which becomes the paper feed tray. To the left of this is a flip-open cover for the dual memory card slot, which takes SD and MemoryStick cards. Unusually, this slot is very fiddly to work a card into. There are a couple of other slightly unfortunate design features in this machine.
For a start, printed pages stack up on top of the input tray. This is a common enough way of doing things with inexpensive all-in-ones, but here there's a swivel-out paper support, for some reason coloured brown against the black livery of the rest of the machine, and with a long flip-up paper stop, which is both flimsy and ineffective. As pages come through, they ride up the angled paper stop and often overcome the little ridge at the top which is supposed to stop them.
Then there's feeding 15 x 10cm photo blanks. It's not at all obvious that the paper feed tray pulls out, like a skeletal paper cassette, so you can feed small paper sizes into the bowels of the machine. It's in the manual, but if you’re the type who likes to work things out from first principles, it's easy to get confused.
The printer can be connected via USB or wireless, though wireless is the easier option, particularly if your router supports WPS setup. The ink cartridges clip into the head carrier very easily and the support software includes HP PhotoCreations and support for ePrint.
I bought this HP Officejet 5510 all-in-one printer few years ago when I needed a new printer for one of my offices.
Lets be honest, this printer is not a beauty. The whole products appears to be quite big and chunky (the dimensions are 9.1 x 17.8 x 17.7 inches). The printer came in silver color. There are control buttons on the left top side and a small screen (it is not so easy to navigate through it in the beginning however after a while I got eventually used to it). The connection with laptop is made via USB cable.
The paper input is on the top and the outcome of the papers in the front. Under the top lid is located the scanner which is very easy to use and the quality of the scanned documents is very good (the scan resolution is 600 x 2400 dpi and documents scan size is 8.5 x 11.7 inches).
The quality of the prints is quite good. The color print speed is 12 pages per minute and gray scale print speed is 17 pages per minute. The print speed is quite slow but it is enough for occasional use. However I do not think this printer is suitable for heavy office use. I personally do not use this printer anymore in my office due to its slow performance. However I still use it in my weekend house few times a year.
I find this printer overall ok, however I would not recommend to buy it.
