HP's photo printer uses a record eight inks to produce terrific photos--but the ink can cost you.

High-End Gear: HP Photosmart 7960 and Scanjet 4600

 

HP attempts to invigorate its high-end printer line with its Photosmart 7960 and Scanjet 4600. With a host of nifty new features, are the technologies worth the extra money?

HP 7960 Review
