HP Photosmart A826 Reviews

PCMag reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“The combination of high initial price, cost per photo, and less-than-impressive speed and output quality keep the A826 from earning Editors’ Choice status. Still, it comes close. Its speed, quality, and price per photo are all acceptable, and the large touch screen is highly seductive, all of which makes the A826 a more-than-reasonable choice for printing photos at home.”

“If you’re hoping to find a laser photo printer, you’ll be surprised at how difficult it is to find one, and most of them are very expensive too. But if you want excellent laser-quality photo printing, you can always go with the HP Photosmart A826 Compact Photo Printer. I highly recommend this device if you want to produce excellent photos and laser-quality, vibrant, and color-rich printouts.”

Computershopper reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“Viewed as a color printer for your PC, the Photosmart A826 is pricey for a three-color device that maxes out at 5×7-inch output. But don’t look at it as just a printer. It’s also an entertaining creative tool for the kids, a stand-alone device that Grandma can use to easily print shots from her digital camera, a great tool for scrapbookers, a makeshift digital picture frame, and a fast and easy way to get prints without dealing with PC software. Given all that, the price isn’t so bad.”

Trustedreviews reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“Print speeds were generally very acceptable, with 15 x 10cm prints coming through in just under a minute from both PC and memory card. Printing from a PictBridge camera took around 40 seconds longer, so it’s best to take the card out and use it directly. The printer can work with HP’s Premium Plus Photo Paper in both gloss or satin finishes, but is best with its new Advanced paper. Prints are good quality, with plenty of detail and natural reproduction of blues, greens and reds.”

CNET reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“We really liked the photos produced by the Photosmart A826. The colors were lifelike, particularly the skin tones. The details were sharp and we could even make out the fuzzy texture of a peach. If you’re an avid snapshooter and like to have prints of everything you produce, the Photosmart A826 should keep you happy.”

MACworld reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“The HP Photosmart A826 is a great choice for beginning photographers who want to print their digital photos as easily as possible. The printer’s case design could use some improvement for greater ease of handling, and dark prints appear a little dull; but overall, the A826 is an attractive, fun device made just for its intended consumer group—shutterbug hobbyists and scrapbookers. At $250, the A826 isn’t cheap, but its innovative, user-friendly interface makes this printer a worthy investment.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ITreviews reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“The Photosmart A826 is a great little printer, particularly if you’re interested in standalone photo printing. The ability to handle 18 x 13cm prints as well as 15 x 10cm is handy, but not nearly as handy as the touch-screen for selection and mark-up. Print quality is fine and costs are very reasonable. It would be good to see the asking price for the printer drop by £30, though.”

PCWorld reviews the HP Photosmart A826 and writes;
“The color and monochrome photos we printed looked good. The orange-biased palette made flesh tones look a bit off but gave other images a vivid, if slightly dark, quality. Hard edges seemed pretty crisp. Regrettably, like many other snapshot photo printers we’ve tested, the Photosmart A826 is very slow, taking well over a minute to print each of our 4-by-6-inch test photos.”
