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...

"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

Able to print from

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.

"HP has possibly the worst product ever!"


If I could possibly give it zero stars, I would. I can't keep the tablet seated so it will stay charged. Sometimes it will sit there just fine. Then there are times, oh say, when it is absolutely critical that I print...and it won't work. Thanks HP.

It prints in color...when it decides to print.

"HP Photosmart eStation C510 JUNK!"


I need HELP! I was told my HP Photosmart eStation C510 is out of Warranty. However, my replacement Zeen, because my first one was broken from the start is not even a year old. Now, the Zeen will not connect and HP wants me to pay $250 dollars for a...

NONE, because mine does not work and has not worked the way it was intended since I bought it.

If it did what it is suppose to do without issue it would be a great product. However, HP is a greedy company that does not care about the customer. I've wasted hours of my life dealing with their customer service.

"HP has lost a customer for life."


I became a member of Cnet just to warn others. I have spent in total 8 hours with technical support now and still do have a working printer. Was told by HP and I quote, " You should have returned it to the store the first day and gotten a refund, all...

There are none of three I have owned now have ever worked. Have spent almost as much in print cartridges as i did the printer running test pages.

Software for scanner is useless. No phone line for fax, third party software only, and yes it is a pay service. Zeen never stays connected.

"This is a beautiful printer, and hardly any problems."


EVeryone always writes bad reviews but you don't see good ones very often. This printer is great, and I love the fabulous prints that I make. I have alot of fun with the apps and the print apps, and I am really into making my own photos now. I did have...

I have hardly had any issues with my printer, I don't see what all these bad reviews are about. I didn't have a single problem setting it up out of the box. It connected to my network just fine and did it's little update thing that tok a while. I went o

The setup ink was quick but about what i was told (200 for the first cart i replaced). I have all XL and it doesn't bother me anymore.I have to spray air to clean the insides of dust because it will squeek and gets loud, but the air will work. The eStatio
