Advantages: Very well designed, easy to use, good quality printing
Disadvantages: Expensive on ink use, inefficient as a document printer
I got this printer for the bargain price of £60 when I purchased a digital camera around two years ago. The printer, for that price, is a bargain. It is of solid build and simple to use, my experience was pretty much as plug-in-and-go as you can get. The quality and experience of HP as a company shows in this model, it is very much designed with the user in mind. There is the facility to plug a variety of memory cards straight into the printer, view images on the small LCD screen, and print straight away without any need to go via your computer. You can even (with the purchase of a blue-tooth adaptor), send images straight to the printer from another device for printing. The print quality is good- I would not say it's the best I've seen but it's certainly not a let down. That said I really wouldn't pick this printer if you're only planning on black-and-white text documents, you won't get value for money. The ink is expensive if purchasing the 'official' cartridges and it does tend to get through them, but you can pick up refilled catridges for around £11 online.
Summary: Brilliant quality budget photo printer
