HP Photosmart 2710/2610 review

 

Intro The days of "jack-of-all-trades, master of none" all-in-one printers are long gone. Today's multifunction machines scan, copy, print, and fax without making egregious sacrifices in output quality, speed, or usability. The HP Photosmart 2710...

Makes excellent photo and text prints; fast printing and scanning; PC-free faxing; includes media-card and PictBridge slots; wired and wireless networking; optional duplexer.

Expensive; clumsy input-tray design; forces ink-swapping between text and photo printing; photo ink not included.

Whether you work from home, in a small office, or with varied home printing, scanning, faxing, and copying needs, this all-in-one takes care of business.

Although you could buy a better printer and scanner as separate components, HP's Photosmart 2710 is a good bet for anyone who wants a quality print from a well-integrated, all-in-one device.

The Photosmart 2710, which is at the top of HP's Photosmart line, also includes a big, 3.5-inch color LCD to make it easy to print sans computer. The 2710 unit we tested can make copies, fax documents and-by using the camera media slots or direct print...

XPS One 27 (2710) all-in-one PC

 

We don't usually get excited about all-in-one desktop PCs because they're all usually much the same. However, the Dell XPS One 27 has so much going for it, it's hard not to be impressed. From its high resolution, 27in screen, to its 3rd gen Core i7 CPU...

27in, 2560x1440 screen 3rd gen Core i7 CPU Neat and good looking unit

Reflections from screen can be distracting Poor mouse
