Expert review by:

HP Photosmart D5460

 

Given how large the universe of $100 photo printers has grown, it can be difficult to decide exactly which one to throw your 100 bones toward.

Prints gorgeous photos, albeit a tad slowly. Printing from a memory card is a snap

Software makes it more difficult than necessary to print photos from within an image editor

Despite a clunky process for printing photos from within an image editor, the Photosmart D5460 turns out gorgeous photos and doesn't consume ink like a pig at the trough the way some printers in its class do. For 100 bucks, it's a fabulous value.

HP's Photosmart D5460 inkjet printer is a bargain that you can brag about. Though it's a bare-bones printer in most respects, it has a few standout features that any photo enthusiast would love to have.

CD/DVD printing Very good print quality

Can't accommodate legal-size paper

The Photosmart D5460 starts out as a basic machine, but it provides more options and higher-quality output than you'd expect for the price. If you're concerned about the high cost of photo printing, this economically designed model may provide the...

If you don't need scanning and copying, HP's Photosmart D5460 is a decent buy. It delivers good quality printing and has some of the frills associated...

CD/DVD printing, great print quality, fast print speeds

Some photo printing inconsistencies, limited to USB connection

The D5460 is a stripped-down Photosmart. There aren't too many frills, but the quality is enticing enough at this price.

Great photo printer

 

I purchased this printer mainly for it's reputation for great photo results. I was not disappointed! People ask me all the time if I printed those pics myself or sent them to a lab. Only downside is it does go through ink fast at highest quality...

Amazing photo quality prints

Sucks down ink quick

Consumer review by:

BIG ink HOG

 

The print yield is no where near what HP claims. Even in draft mode, the most modest user will be replacing cartridges often. With the standard yield cartridges, you will get about 4-6 photos at best (4"x6" paper). With the extra capacity cartridges...

Excellent print quality. The photo quality is amazing. Has separate photo paper tray and an adapter that allows you to print on printable CD's/DVD's

This printer is a BIG ink HOG. Even in draft mode, you will go through a lot of expensive ink cartridges with this printer

Consumer review by:

Excellent color prints

 

Don't purchase this printer unless you absolutely have to print onto cd/dvd's

Excellent color prints. Easy to use. Prints directly onto cd & dvd's

Clunk clunk, click click, clatter clatter, buzz buzz... out comes an excellent color print. Clunk clunk, click click... etc etc etc. out comes a second color print. Oop's, time to replace the cartridge. Expensive ink, hp support is terrible
