HP Photosmart eStation C510 review: HP Photosmart eStation C510


The HP Photosmart eStation C510 is an extension of HP's efforts to include Web-connectivity across its line of printers. With a detachable 7-inch Android-powered tablet that lets you surf the Web, browse Facebook, and access the Barnes & Noble eBook...

ePrint feature enables wireless printing by e-mail with online job monitor; detachable Zeen tablet.

Android-based tablet can't access Android Marketplace; onscreen menu lacks print progress tools; problematic Zeen prone to touch-screen mistakes, system hang-ups, and browser process errors; lacks proper setup instructions.

For all the cool points the HP Photosmart eStation C510 earns for Web-connectivity features like ePrint and the detachable Android-powered Zeen, we're holding off on our recommendation until HP drops the price and fixes the user interface bugs and...

HP Photosmart eStation C510


Remember the prediction that someday all our appliances would connect to the Internet? We're still waiting for that to happen—probably because there's no urgent need for a Web-savvy toaster, dishwasher, or washing machine. Your printer, on the other...

Detachable touch screen lets you browse Web, read e-mail, install printer apps ; Excellent print quality ; Superior ink longevity for photos ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Duplex printing

Paper-output tray handles only 50 sheets at a time ; Limited scan, fax options ; Flash-card slot supports SD only

The eStation’s tablet-like control panel gives this highly capable all-in-one a leg up on its competition. Not only is it a fine inkjet, but for home- or small-office users who want to stay Web-connected when away from a PC, its tablet is a big win.

HP Photosmart eStation C510


The HP Photosmart eStation C510 is one of HP's newest Internet-connected ePrint printers. This model has a detachable 7-inch Google Android-powered tablet that lets you browse the Internet and much more. Print quality is quite good and the wireless Web...

HP Photosmart eStation C510 review


Print quality is high, but its mediocre removable tablet doesn't impress

Although the eStation C510 has some excellent features, you can’t help feeling short-changed by the Zeen tablet. If HP had been a little less ambitious and kept it as a printer control screen with applications, or invested a little more in its...

HP Photosmart eStation C510 Inkjet All-in-One


Does a printer plus an Android tablet equal the next big thing in home printing, or is it just a cash-in on the success of the iPad?

HP - Photosmart eStation C510


A number of key innovations have pushed forward HP's latest Photosmart Premium all-in-one devices. The CN503b, which we took a look at recently, features a 2.4in full-colour touchscreen that can be used to control the device ...

The C510 is an innovative, stylish all-in-one that performs well enough but is ultimately let down by an under-performing Android 2.1 tablet that's not nearly as responsive as we'd have liked. While there may be significant appeal in combining devices...

Fast, high-quality prints and great design, but the gimmicky tablet joins the ranks of Android let-downs

"Only printer works and it's inconsistent."


This machine has too many negatives. HP needs to send every customer who has tried to get the scanner or fax to work or work consistently a check for "time on task" trying to get their document where it needs to be. My husband spent several hours...

Clean, clear printing quality of text and graphics.

Poorly written manuals send reader to other sites, explanations are not thorough. CONSTANT Connectivity problems. FAX NOT WORKING.

"Horrible: we spend 2 hrs every day troubleshooting."


This would be an awesome printer if it worked and had an ADF. Alas, neither is true.

It's pretty.

Loses wifi connection constantly, zeen doesn't work most of the time, it is slow to turn off/on, it shoots paper on the floor, no autofeed available, unnecessarily complicated. Constantly in need of time-consuming troubleshooting.

"Continual problems from the start."


Major disappiontment. Problems with the Zeen tablet, problems with scanning software.

Able to print from iphone.

My Zeen was defective upon purchase, and it took a long time to get replaced through HP. The scanning software is slows and locks up. The whole system just seems boggy and a pain to use.
