HP PhotoSmart 2575 Reviews

Ezinearticles reviews the HP PhotoSmart 2575 and writes;
“Printing from your Computer is something that many will spend their time on, as a text printer there are several fancy speed assertions that i couldn’t attain. I managed 7PPM within normal mode printing a 200 word document. Within fast draft I managed to get 14PPM, furthermore using fast draft I obtained 14PPM printing a more typical 1500 word document extended over 4 pages. The printing in normal mode was superb, really black and wonderfully acceptable with regard to letters. The fast draft was nearly of the same quality with only the very slightest tinge of grey but nonetheless good quality.”

Expertreviews reviews the HP PhotoSmart 2575 and writes;
“The quality of our plain paper results was very good, with crisp text and solid colours that had minimal banding. Photographs printed using the standard four-ink setup showed some grain, but they had high levels of detail and accurate colours. We found it simple to make prints from an SD card without using a PC.”

User Opinions

HP PhotoSmart 2575 User Reviews

Very Good “All-In-One”
“As for the printer/scanner/photo printer this thing is great! I require better-than-average devices for my work and this “All-In-One” does the trick. It’s never going to be as good as individual components that specifically do only those tasks but it’s much better than I had hoped it would be. The photos look great and the scanner gives me really crisp scans. Overall, a solid offering from HP.” – by C. Freitag

Beautiful printing, straightforward operation
“I have also used the scanning and copying features on this printer and it is so easy! There are very specific buttons that say “Start Copy Black” and “Start Copy Color” as well as “Start Scan”. How much easier can it get? The included Image Zone software is also great. I was able to remove red eyes from photos easily, as well as crop/resize photos quickly… In terms of other reviewers mentioning white spots on photos and paper jams, I’m happy to say that has not been an issue for me. I’m happily printing away over here, enjoying the instant gratification of excellent photos!” – by Alisa M. Hope

“I bought this at christmas time and i love it. i’ve yet to have a problem with it. i use staples brand computer paper and don’t have a problem with it. the quality pictures it prints are excellent and fast. the only complaint i would have is that there is no tray to catch the papers that just printed out so they just basically fall down all over the place. i love the wireless connection to it. i have a laptop so i’m not always in the same place, but now i can sit in my bedroom and print something out and not have to fiddle with cords and such to connect it. i recommend this.” – by K.

Excellent Value, No Problems on Mac OS X
“This printer has changed the way we use our digital photos. Previously we connected the cameras via USB and imported the photos to the computer via iPhoto. This printer is equipped with multiple card readers, so now we just pop the card in and transfer/import through the printer. We are also able to view the photos on the card via the printer LCD and/or print any pictures immediately…” – by J. Paolini

Great multifunction at a great price
“The printer itself is also great, prints very good picture quality, fast text (although I usualy use my LaserJet 1100A for black only text). The scanner / copier is also great and very easy to use. Even printing photos form memory cards or PicBridge is easy! For people nervous about the drivers, just go straight to Hewlett Packard’s web site and download the latest drivers, I’ve had no issues with any of my computers, inlcuding a WinXP pro machine.” – by E.

“I just bought this printer 2 weeks ago and it works perfectly. i dont know why people are complaining about paper jams, because maybe its their faults. you aren’t really suppose to stick the paper way in. as for printing photographs, i havent bought the special ink, but with the regular ink, it works great, sometimes even better than doing it at the stores. I’ve printed 20 pictures or so and i still have enough ink left. So if you people have problems because of the paper jams or whatever, maybe its your fault. protect your investments, because good quality printers dont come cheap.” – by D.Q “darreeeennnn”

Worth it for the price-a year ago
“I use it for printing word documents, photos and scanning and have had few problems. I probably use it 1-2 times a week and occasionally do run into paper jams-but they’ve been easily fixable. The photoquality is excellent even without the special photo-ink. I’ve also had good luck scanning photos, fixing them up and then reprinting. A year ago, I got this printer for about $160 and I’d say it was worth it. Nowadays you may be able to get something better for the same price.” – by DonkaDoo

Ah, I Fixed it
“Anyways, if you get the settings right and if you have a pretty nice color-accurate monitor, this thing prints some very nice pictures. I don’t get very good results with generic paper so I’d go with anything HP and then make sure you have that paper selected in the printer properties. Otherwise the driver has to guess what kind of paper you have and it’ll probably look either faded or over saturated. It took me a while to get the settings just right but it was worth it. Good Luck. I gave it 5 stars because it was so easy to clean and the pictures can look pretty amazing if you put enough time into each one.” – by J. McIntyre

What’s going on with all the 1 Stars
“This printer went through a lot with all the papers and pictures I printed and it still gave me great performance. Never had a paper jam or any other problems. You just have to be patient with it and it will print things perfectly. I never got the recommended paper for it maybe thats why I never had a problem ;-). I’ve been through so many printers because all other brands were crap and broke down after a couple months. If your looking for a printer you don’t necessarly have to buy this one because it is a little expensive, but I would recommend HP over anything else.” – by VLJ “V.”
