My Mother sent me the HP PhotoSmart photo Printer for Christmas last year. This is by far, one of the best gifts that I have ever recieved. I had an all in one printer. Print/scan/copy and I still have it for scanning but it runs out of ink way too fast. This HP photo printer though, is just darn near perfect.
It comes with seven different colors of ink. I know that sounds like alot but it is so ink efficient that after a year, I am just now having to replace the yellow ink. And the pictures...the pictures that it prints are beautiful! They are professional quality and they come out quickly and are dry as soon as printing is finished. With my other printer I always had to wait for a few minutes before I could handle the pictures.
The other neat feature is that you can plug your' camera memory card directly into the printer. Then there is a two inch by two inch screen with control buttons that you can scroll through the pictures on your' memory card, fix them, crop them and then print them all directly from the photo printer.
It is easy to use and I have never had a problem with it. Like I said, the ink lasts forever. I have printed hundreds of pages of documents and tons of photos and I am far from having to replace anything except the yellow ink. I love this printer!
