HP Photosmart 385 Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the HP Photosmart 385 and writes;
“Photo print quality is excellent, using the HP 343 Tri-Colour Inkjet Print Cartridge with HP Vivera Inks providing vivid, long lasting true-to-life colour that will resist fading for generations. Budding photographers wanting to experiment black and white prints can swap the tri-colour cartridge with the optional HP 100 Grey Photo Inkjet Print Cartridge to produce black and white photos comparable with studio-developed prints.”

PCWorld reviews the HP Photosmart 385 and writes;
“It also did a very good job on our standard Macworld test print, displaying sharp details and accurate colors. Even black and white photos looked very good, showing fairly neutral grays, even though the printer does not have black ink.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-lint reviews the HP Photosmart 385 and writes;
“Print quality was very good and like previous models we’ve tested, as good as you would get from most professional labs. HP has also made the 385 compatible with its new Grey ink cartridge meaning you can print true black and white images rather than four colour black images.”
