HP Photosmart A616 User Reviews

Great Fun
“Got this for my son-in-law for Christmas. He loves to tinker with computers and electronics, and this has been a great buy. He connected it up to the TV so that we were able to view several family members’ pictures in a slide show, and printed selected pics quickly. It’s a great portable size, quality was good, took him just a few minutes to set it up, and was delighted with the results.” – by R J H

Great Printer
“I purchased this printer and loved the results. Like the other comments stated it was very east to operate. If there is something that is not clear just refer to the manual and it will help you out. Printing out a 5×7 photo is easy and the results come out great. This is a good printer that is worth the price.” – by A. Cox

Perfect for a novice, or anyone else
“I purchased this printer for my wife along with her first digital camera. She is a complete techno novice. She has never used a computer. She was able to set up the printer, print photos and use the editing features on her own the first day she had it. The photo quailty and speed is impressive. The unit stores convieniently ans it has a great look and feel.” – by Ski Boy

Perfect Match of Performance and Price
“In this photo printer, HP does an excellent job of matching what you want in terms of performance with what you want to pay. It works with a variety of media cards, and produces crisp photos fairly quickly from a variety of formats. I highly recommend it. “ – by Jon Lamphier

Photo Printer
“Great printer. Indeed I purchased it for my daughter-in-law whose computer abilities are about zero. She has had absolutely no problems with using the printer directly off her camera. Not only are the photos good, but the printer also seems to be very good on ink use. “ – by Andrew J. Kemmerer

HP Portable Printer
“This printer is a very nice compact package. Easy to use and the pictures look good to me. I use the printer separately, not hooked up to a computer. In fact, I have no intention of ever using it with a computer. I use it as a convenient, fast, easy way to print a picture, without having to turn on your computer. You can also take the printer with you when you go places and print on the spot. You can easily zoom in, crop, and some other simple edits right on the unit. If I want to do more extensive editing, I use my computer. I haven’t used any of the other portable printers out there, so I can’t comment on printing speed, etc., but I am very happy with this HP printer. “ – by Jeffrey A. Knichel

I bought the refurbished A616 for $39.95 and love it
“I’m real happy with the performance of this model, I have one of the first HP printers of this type and must say they’ve improved over the years. Print speed is about 2 mins. and using the best HP photo paper it makes near perfect prints. I did try the cheaper HP photo paper, the darker areas have a hazed look, this is NOT the case using the HP Premium Plus Photo Paper. I bought a refurbished one about 3 months ago and couldn’t tell it from new, HP offers the same one year warr. and includes everything the new one comes with, even the ink! I’ve found for me most things that are refurbished have perform perfectly, it was worth the chance this time.” – by Lumi

A high quality printer
“This is our first photo printer. I was pleased with its ease of setup and use. I was amazed at the high quality photos it produces. It is really fun to have instant access to our photos without leaving home. I’m sure that we will enjoy its portability over time. The unit itself, along with reasonable ink costs, make this a great value.” – by dbp

Great Product
“This is a great product. I bought it for my wife on her birthday, amazing quality!! The settings are so detailed, you can selcet your paper type and the printer will actually print differently for the paper type you are using. The selection of photo sizes is great. Overall amazing product!” – by Sean M.
