HP Photosmart D7460 Test Report

 

Ethernet, 802.11b/g wireless, and a large touch screen make this printer progressive but pricey.

Large, tilting, 3.5-inch touchscreen LCD ; Built-in 802.11g wireless

Expensive ; Input and output trays tricky to juggle

HP Photosmart D7460

 

Design The HP Photosmart D7460 looks a lot like other members of the Photosmart printer line. The brushed-silver-and-white body stands 18.2 inches wide, 15.3 inches deep, and 6.8 inches tall, and weighs a very manageable 17.6 pounds. Protected behind a...

Touch screen is large and easy to use; comes network-ready with both wired and wireless options; fast text prints; built-in memory card slots and PictBridge USB port; dedicated and automated photo paper tray; generous support package.

Very slow photo prints; print quality needs a bit of improvement.

The HP Photosmart D7460 offers compelling features--including a touch screen--for home users, but the competition offers better print quality.

HP Photosmart D7460 Printer

 

This year's D7460 solves that problem. It keeps everything that was good about the D7360 and bumps up the photo quality—from merely good enough for snapshots to superb. It gets an increase in touch screen size to a spacious 3.5 inches. It also has some...

Superb color photos. Ethernet connector. Wi-Fi. Touch screen-based menus. Prints from memory cards and USB keys

Below-par text quality. Low paper capacity

The HP Photosmart D7460 Printer is aimed at people who want superb-looking photos and don't print a lot of text or graphics.

"Great when it works."

 

We have had this unit replaced by HP several times. It simply can't figure out how to grab photo, brochure, or any other type of thicker paper. The solution is to retry about 50 times and finally it will go ... the upshot is that if this sort of...

Great output quality

Horribly unreliable at pulling paper of any type aside from basic office paper.

Consumer review by:

Too slow and will not operate with most software.

 

Buyer beware of HP and printers

Absolutely none

Takes a minute or more before printing to "clear its' throat". Will only print from MS Word which I will not use. Absolutely will not print envelopes from any software ; Product assistance is nil ; Worst printer I have ever owned and HP will not be consi

"Clearing a jam triggers a system failure you can't fix."

 

Don't buy this printer. You are likely to have a paper jam eventually and when you clear it you can easily trigger a system failure that there is no fix for ("Lift output tray,,,etc...").

Decent printer when it was working. Good print quality. Worked fine on the network, though I opted to use a lan cable connection.

Clearing a routine paper jam trigger a system error "Lift output tray, push picture tray in until it stops, etc.." and there is no way to reset the printer to get it to work again. Googled issue and it is a common issue that no one can resolve.

"This thing is a pile of electronic junk."

 

I bought this after reading many reviews. Right after it came out. It connected to my home network without too much trouble, but that is when the problems started. Many problems. Connected by wire and was able to get it to print. However almost every...
