A flexible multifunction printer from HP
I'm Justin Yu for cnet.com.
This is the first look at the HP Photosmart 7510e-All-in-One Printer.
This machine combines a printer, a scanner and a copier, into a pretty low profile (chasty?) design.
You'll also get the benefit of this 4.3 inch touchscreen on the front.
It may look like an iPhone's screen but it does take a little bit of time to learn how to accurately scroll to the menu, 'cause the screen can be a little twitchy.
HP's Photosmart line is really targeted at the snapshot photographer, and that's why you get an auto document feeder on top.
That's for scanning stacks of photos.
The paper tray on the bottom however, can hold up to a 125 sheets of regular 8-1/2 by 11 inch paper but there's also a separate 20 sheet photo paper tray on top of that one, so you don't have to consolidated switching out media.
Now, if you don't have a wireless network setup in your work space, you can pretty much just forget about getting this printer, 'cause you really wanna have that WiFi connection setup, take advantage of all it's Cloud Printing features.
Mac users are in luck as well, because this printer is compatible with Air Print for easy setup.
But of course, HP does include an installation disc in the box, so you can install it on PC as well, or you can use Google Cloud Print on either operating system.
If you're using a Chrome Browser.
When you talk about HP Cloud Printing, you're really talking about two things; ePrint and the ePrintCenter.
So, ePrint is a simple Cloud Printing technology that let you send jobs from any connected device using a uniquely assigned e-mail address that comes with each printer they ship out.
While the ePrintCenter is basically just a print center app store for the touch display, that will give you apps for quick prints, from things like to go through games, weather, news, recipes, coupons, etc.
So, once you have the printer hooked up to your wireless network, it's really easy and convenient for scheduled prints.
In our speed test, however, the 7510 performed slightly faster than the average multi-function device in it's price category.
So, it's still couldn't up-jump the Epson Workforce 645 out of the fastest position.
Regardless, this printer isn't really met for high volume office printing anyway.
So, you won't likely notice the difference if you're just printing a few photos or news article at a time.
You can read all the details in my full review on CNET but that's gonna do it for me.
