HP Photosmart A636 Compact Photo Printer Printer

 

Other snapshot printers, beware: HP's new Photosmart A636 Compact Photo Printer sets a high standard. This medium-priced, inkjet-based model is fast and very easy to use. Its print quality is nearly as good as that of the Epson PictureMate Dash, which...

Fast ; easy to use ; many printing options ; Prints on 5-by-7-inch media

Documentation skimps on some key details

The Photosmart A636 may miss on a few minor points, but it's a fast, capable printer--and its ability to accept an unusually extensive range of paper sizes is a definite plus

HP Photosmart A636 review: HP Photosmart A636

 

HP Photosmart A636

Improved photo quality prints; incredibly easy desktop software installation; tons of editing features; large touch screen; small footprint.

Slower-than-average prints.

The HP Photosmart A636 is an excellent at-home photo inkjet printer that's both versatile and easy to use. We highly recommend the A636 for its significant photo quality improvements over the last model and an attractive design to boot.

HP Photosmart A636 Compact Photo Printer

 

Most small-format dedicated photo printers are notably easy to set up and use. Almost all of them are suitable for technophobes who just want to print snapshots with as little effort as possible. So when I say that the HP Photosmart A636 Compact Photo...

Touch screen. Prints 5-by-7s, 4-by-6s, and up to 4-by-12-inch panoramas. Installs driver from printer itself

Speed is acceptable but slower than that of some other dedicated photo printers

The HP Photosmart A636 Compact Photo Printer is strong on convenience, with a kiosk-like touch screen and effortless installation.

HP's Photosmart A636 is the only mini-photo printer here to use inkjet rather than dye sublimation technology.

HP Photosmart A636 review

 

Snapshot printers, beware: HP's new Photosmart A636 Compact Photo Printer sets a high standard - and rewards impatient, on-the-go users.

HP - Photosmart A636

 

If you open up the packaging of HP's new Photosmart A636 compact printer you'll be forgiven for suffering an instant sense of déjà vu, as this is an upgrade of the virtually identical Photosmart A626. There ...

If you haven't yet purchased a compact photo printer to keep with you on the move where PCs might be hard to come by, then the Photosmart A636 produces good quality images with a host of editing and fun creative features.
