HP Photosmart eStation C510 All-in-One Printer

 

The HP Photosmart eStation C510 includes a 7-inch Android tablet and lets you print via e-mail or mobile apps, but its performance could be better.

Even though $299 for a printer is on the pricey side, HP bundles an 7-inch Android tablet with its PhotoSmart eStation C510 for about $120 more than other all-in-ones. You also get HP's convenient ePrint service, Apple AirPrint support, and a iPrint...

The HP Photosmart eStation C510 would be a standard ink jet all-in-one printer if not for its detachable, 7-inch color touch screen, the TouchSmart.

HP Photosmart eStation C510 review

 

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 Review - PCWorld

 

You've got to hand it to HP: When the company decides to rethink printing, it thinks big. Its Photosmart eStation weds a fast, capable color inkjet multifunction with a unique extra: the Zeen, a removable touchscreen control panel running the Android...

Large, detachable, touchscreen control panel

High purchase price

Fast, capable, and overshadowed by its detachable tablet control panel, this MFP offers a unique extra that may justify its price.

No slot for USB key. Card reader limited to SD format

The HP PhotoSmart eStation's 7-inch touch screen is detachable and doubles as a basic tablet and eReader.

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.

Is the HP Photosmart eStation C510 worth $399.99? For many of us, it will be worth the price. At the core, and most important, it's a very capable AIO printer. The added value of its tablet will depend on how likely you are to download and use the...

Review: HP Photosmart eStation e-All-in-One C510a MFP

 

Fast, capable, and overshadowed by its detachable Android-based tablet control panel, this MFP offers a unique extra that may justify its price.

At a time when both tablets and Android are hot topics, however, the Zeen seems to be drawing more attention than HP may have desired. Whether the Zeen helps sell more Photosmart eStation mother ships is uncertain—especially at $400

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...
