HP Photosmart A716 Reviews

MACworld reviews the HP Photosmart A716 and writes;
“The HP Photosmart A716’s photo quality isn’t as good as some of the other portable photo printers we’ve tested. But it has a multitude of nice features, such as a built-in hard drive, water- and smudge-resistant prints available in a variety of sizes up to 4-by-12-inch panoramas, a handle, and an optional battery that make it attractive to people looking for an easy-to-use, portable photo printer.”

Everythingusb reviews the HP Photosmart A716 and writes;
“I was a bit surprised at the big discrepancies between the print times that HP quoted and the print times I recorded in testing. That’s not just little variance, but very significant. I am also a bit bothered by the high cost of ownership of the A716, it certainly not cheap to use or buy if you want all the options. However, at the end of the day the finished product you get from the printer is excellent and if quality photos are all you’re looking for, the A716 may just be for you.”

HP Photosmart A716 User Reviews

Portable, easy to use
“I purchased this so I could print photos while traveling. It has met my needs 100%. It’s easy to use, the print quality is really good, and it’s lightweight. The compact size also makes it easy to pack in a loaded vehicle for travel or setup in a small area for printing. As for supplies, I found that it is currently the only compact photo printer which you can purchase the ink cartridge and photo paper separate at a local office supply store. If you’re looking for ease of use, good print quality, and compact size, I recommend the A716. “ – by Iluvgadgets

very easy to use
“this printer is great- its easy to use, there is really no need for a manual, prints pictures quickly and the color is excellent. i love how you can put a jumpdrive or a memory card to it and it will show all of the pictures. you can rotate the pictures, delete them off of your memory card as you go, on the printer, you can turn the pictures black and white, sepia, antique, ect. you can change the brightness from the printer, crop it… all in all, excellent! i’d reccommend this to anyone” – by A.

“This little HP printer makes the most unbelievable 4X6 and 5X7 prints on HP’s glossy Advanced Photo Paper. I am amazed each time I make a print. I generally work with a large format Epson Stylus Pro 4000 which contains 8 inks. That HP has found a way to get results like this with just three colors, is remarkable. The pictures are tack sharp, the color is accurate, the image is flawless. You feel you are looking at a print done “the old fashioned way” by a quality lab.” – by Peter Johngren

Fantastic Product
“I have not yet advanced to anything beyond “auto” on my digital camera; but within minutes of starting to print pictures using this photo printer, I was able to crop, enlarge, and brighten. I have printed over 300 pictures since receiving this printer, and I love it! It is so easy to use, and it prints an extremely sharp picture. I would highly recommend this printer.” – by D. Rothenberger

Amazing little printer
“This printer locks up about once a month. I pull the power cord out to reset it. But if you have the battery in place, you have to pull the cord and remove the battery. I really haven’t found much use for this as a portable “print anywhere” printer. It works very well as a computer-attached printer. I do NOT use any of the HP software. I have a 4×6′ bulletin boarde with many pictures printed on this printer. They look great!” – by D. W. Moore

great lil photo printer
“I love this little thing, so quick and simple, the photos come out looking professional, wish it would do 8 by 10’s, but then it wouldn’t be so compact. My only gripe ~ this thing goes through ALOT of ink.
But all in all, it’s a great photo printer!”

Scrapbooker’s DREAM
“I cannot say how amazed I was! It is now past 3 am and I am having trouble getting to bed because I was to just print, print, print and scrapbook all night long! Another thing I am grateful for is when parents and in-laws come to visit we take lots of pictures of them with the kiddos. We can always tell with the digital camera that it is a good picture, but they always leave the house with me promising to get pictures to them….eventually.” – by scrapbook addict

Awesome little picture printer
“This picture printer is great. I picked up the case to keep it stored when not in use. Does not take up much room. Easy to use. I like how I can pull the memory card from the camera and insert it into the printer and print easily. It has so many options that I am still learning. Very nice. “ – by K. L. Short
