Review of HP Photosmart 100
“I own a 2.1 mega pixel digital camera and this printer makes a great companion. Forget about buying/developing film anymore, the HP Photosmart 100 prints excellent quality pictures that can easily be mistaken for photographs to the casual eye. One noticeable feature is the compact size of this printer. It fits nicely on my already crowded desk. Keep in mind that you’ll need at least 6 to 8″ of clearence behind the printer for the photopaper to feed properly. Too bad the maximum size paper it will accept is 4×6.” – by “flyingsquirrelz”

Jeff’s review
“It is the perfect accessorie for a digital camera.You can use it with your PC or print right from a memory card. It almost turns your digital camera into a instant camera. The quality of the pictures is hard to beleive with the small size and lite weight of the printer.” – by A Customer

Kiss the Photolab GOODBYE
“I have waited a long time for this printer. I frequently take photos at family functions and then have to print them at home or email copies to family members. No more. Now I take this portable printer with me and print photos on demand. It is extremely light (3lbs) and produces BEAUTIFUL prints that rival the photo lab. True, it only prints on 4×6 paper, but you can do full 4×6 prints or wallet sized photos. If you want enlargements, don’t waste ink or paper, use a photo service like Ofoto or Yahoo Pictures.” – by Kent Callison

This is the best 4X6 printer yet
“Photosmart 100 is brilliant, it has 2400X1200 resolution, but there is a new printer Photosmart 130. The price is THE SAME. Photosmart 130 can do much sharper pictures 4800X1200, and it can read 4 king of cards. It’s print speed is a little paster. (full page for 2 minuter). And The gratest thing about it is that ink can be refilled [very inexpensively] and the quality stays the same… The quality is great and with each refill i could print about 90-100 pictures. and the quality of pictures is great.You don’t have to buy a wire for [more money], to print it from computer, you can just load imagis from digital camera to computer, and then from computer back to digital camera, and print without connecting printer back to computer… Cool photos. The best 4X6 in the world.” – by eugene

Ditch the photo lab—get this printer
“I first read about this printer on a return trip from London in February. I had taken my first digital camera on the trip (a Canon S30—awesome), and had 140 images I was anxious to print. After reading the reviews on Amazon[.com], I bought the printer and printed the photos myself. Oh my gosh—they looked like postcards! (Even my friends said so). I printed over 200 photos from the London trip alone, for me and for friends who were on the trip. Since then, I’ve probably printed another 300-400 photos on this little gadget. I take it on vacation with me and print photos for everyone. The color is still great, the images are sharp, and the quality is amazing.” – by A reader

“The Photo Smart 100 is easy to set up, Easy to use, Works well with both my computer and Memory cards. It makes wonderful 4 x 6 prints. I cannot tell the difference between the HP Photo Smart 100 prints (From my digital camera) and the ones I get back from the photo lab (from my 35 Millimeter SLR). The software that comes with it is good as well. I am very satisfied with this product.” – by Richard D. Cappetto

Digital DarkRoom
“With the Olympus CamMedia software that comes with most Olympus digital cameras and the HP100 printer you can create photographic quality prints that are a better quality (and easier!) than a traditional darkroom. I use an Olympus 2.1 megapixel camera and I have gone through several packs of 60 count 4 X 6 inch paper;I am delighted with the results from this printer. If you want a bordered print use the 4X6 inch size; if you want the borderless print, use the 4 X 6 1/2 inch paper size. You won’t be disappointed with this printer.” – by “ske05”

Great Printer
“I’ve this printer for about 4 months now. I love it. I also have an HP880c for our regular everyday printing. We also use that printer for pictures, but the clarity and ease of use is nothing compared to the HP PhotoSmart 100. At my cousins baptism we printed pictures from 3 different digital camera’s (Canon, Sony, and Fuji). Everyone was impressed with the ease of use, how quick it printed and how good the pictures look.” – by Kyle D. Gendron

Produces great pictures, but be careful about handling them
“The picture quality is supreme, and no complaints about the printer overall, except for the ink door, which won’t stay shut. The photopaper used on this printer, however, can be easily damaged, so care must be taken on handling it after your pictures are printed. Perhaps I’ll find a 3rd party paper, or HP will improve theirs.” – by LibertyWarrior

HP PhotoSmart 100 Features

Forget having your digital photos printed by someone else. With the PhotoSmart 100 inkjet printer, you can print full-color 4-by-6-inch photos at up to 2,400 x 1,200 dpi on premium photo paper, or at lower resolutions (but still great-looking) on other papers.

Print directly from your digital camera with a CompactFlash, SmartMedia, or Sony Memory Stick memory card, or connect to your computer using the built-in USB port. HP photo imaging software is included. Printing is a bit slow, with a 4-by-6 photo requiring just under three minutes, but quality takes time.

The printer has a markedly compact design, with dimensions of only 8.8 by 4.3 by 4.7 inches, and it weighs less than three pounds, so you can take it with you when you’re on the go. Sorry, Mac users, the HP 100 is only compatible with PCs: Windows 98, 2000 Professional, Me, XP Home, and XP Professional. The printer is backed by a one-year warranty, with the option to extend it to three years at additional cost.
