HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One review

£168 inc VAT

Manufacturer: HP

Our Rating: We rate this 3 out of 5

The photo-oriented HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One printer is efficient, with peppy performance, an automatic document feeder, and decent ink costs.

Athough the HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One multifunction inkjet printer looks strikingly similar to the company's HP Photosmart eStation, you cannot, as you can with the eStation, remove the LCD control panel and use it like a tablet. Believe us, it's the first thing we tried. But the Photosmart 7510 is a well-rounded unit, with good speed and print quality, and sufficient features to address both home and home-office needs.

The HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One is easy to set up, and the software is first-rate. A printed setup booklet is in the box, but you'll have to go online to find the full user guide in PDF format. HP's instructions were unclear as to whether you could print, download, or read the guide; we downloaded the file without a problem and notified HP about the confusing directions. The 4.3-inch colour touchscreen LCD panel has a clear, icon-based menu structure. The printer is also fully endowed with cloud-printing capabilities, specifically HP's own Web-based apps, and HP ePrint and Apple AirPrint for printing from mobile devices.

While the HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One is aimed at users who print lots of photos, its paper-handling features are more than adequate for a small or home office as well. The main paper tray holds 125 sheets, while a second tray integrated into the top of the main tray holds 20 sheets of photo paper up to 5-by-7-inch size. The real bonus is the 25-sheet automatic document feeder (ADF)--still too rare among home-oriented units. This feeder makes up for the fact that the lid for the A4 flatbed scanner doesn't telescope to accommodate thicker materials. The Photosmart 7510 can print and scan in duplex (both sides of the page).

For an inkjet printer, the HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One was fast in most of our tests. On letter-size plain paper (Hammermill Laserprint) at default settings, text pages emerged at a speedy rate of 9.6 pages per minute (ppm) on the PC and 9 ppm on the Mac; a 4-by-6-inch photo took 15 seconds (or 4 ppm). Switching to HP Advanced Photo Paper and finer-quality settings, the same photo took 33 seconds (1.8 ppm), and a full-page, high-resolution photo print on the Mac took about 2.5 minutes (a middling rate of 0.4 ppm). Scanning and copying speeds are a tad faster than average compared with other inkjet MFPs we've tested.

Output from the HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One is generally very good - with HP's penchant for cooler colour temperatures. Text is sharp and dark at default settings, and monochrome graphics are rich, though slightly green. Photos printed on plain paper look nice, other than orange-ish flesh tones; on HP's Advanced Photo Paper, the quality is smooth and realistic, though in a somewhat solemn colour palette, with darker areas gradating to black somewhat quickly.

The HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One's ink costs are reasonable. The three standard colour cartridges (cyan, magenta, and yellow) cost £8.99 each and last for 300 pages (2.9p per page), while the standard black costs £8.95 and lasts for 250 pages, or 3.5ppp. That's just over 12p for a four-colour page. You can reduce colour ink costs significantly with the XL cartridges, which are £16.99 for 750 pages, or 2.2ppp. The XL black represents less of a savings at £18.99 for 550 pages or 3.5ppp.

  • Overall: We give this item 6 of 10 overall

HP's Photosmart 7510 does not follow this season's trend of tacking on CD/DVD printing. But not everyone needs that feature, and the Photosmart 7510 is easy to use and good at just about everything else a home or home office user might want.
