HP Photosmart D7160 review

 

HP Photosmart D7160

Fast and excellent text prints; pleasing photo and graphics prints; dedicated photo-paper tray; prints from an iPod; great bundled software; prints digital video stills.

Photo prints are a bit slow; inability to edit photos on the printer unless in the beginner's wizard mode; can't make bordered 4x6 prints directly from the printer; can't sort images by date range.

If you're looking for a good, all-around printer for the home, the HP Photosmart D7160 is a decent choice. But if your focus is on photographs, you can do better for just a little more cash.

Superior photo quality ; Very easy to use

Photos falter on plain paper ; Flimsy output tray

In a sea of inkjet competitors, the Photosmart D7160 stands out for its conveniences and its superior photo prints. Though some comparable printers may cost less or print a little faster, this would still be a good buy

This is one of the better photo printers available, but other models have an edge in speed or price.

Crisp, natural photo quality and a low price help this printer rise above faster competitors.

The well featured HP D7160 uses the latest Vivera inks but comes in under £100. But how good is it overall?

HP PhotoSmart D7160 review

 

The D7160 is probably the best looking printer in this group, and one of the best equipped.

We spent ages flipping the little screen. Good features, but in some respects average.

HP Photosmart D7160 review

 

A very easy to use printer complete with straight-from-your-iPod compatibility, but does its output make the grade?

An acceptable all-rounder for printing photos and text, and it works unusually well with your other gadgets
