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 review: This printer uses a portable 7in touchscreen Android tablet and prints detailed photos


The HP Photosmart eStation All-in-One multifunction inkjet printer has great specifications and can produce good quality photos and documents. However, we think that touchscreen tablet interface is far too complicated and full of features for its own...

Good photo quality, good document print quality

Tablet interface is far too complicated, touchscreen is not very responsive, no Ethernet port, no automatic document feeder

HP Photosmart eStation C510 review


It's been well publicised that 2011 will be “the year of the tablet”, and with the new version of Android on the way, rumours of a new iPad gathering momentum and a handful of capable devices doing the rounds at the moment, there should be plenty of...

Stylish design, tablet works well for device control, range of additional resources available, decent print speeds and performance

Tablet touchscreen control is poor, unjustified premium for what is essentially a mid-range consumer AIO

Though the eStation is an interesting hybrid, we can’t really see this sort of combination of technology taking off and those serious about both should clearly seek solutions independently

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

Consumer review by: GardenGeo (

"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.
