HP Photosmart 6510 User Review

by abhishek bhatnagar on January 30, 2012

HP Photosmart 6510 multi function printer, we got this printer a month ago, its an all in one printer which lets you print, scan and photo state a paper with anything, apart from this its photosmart printer so can easily print photos from size 4×6 inch to 6×8 inch on photo paper, around 6 good kodak photo paper comes with the printer itself in the box, so that you can test the photo print before you buy more photo paper.

Another most important advantage of this printer is that its wireless internet enabled or hp eprint enabled which lets you send the print command from other computer connected to the same wireless network to which printer is connected to, so there is no wiring which is required to connect the printer.


Another good thing is that this printer has touch screen, ePrint and AirPrint enabled so that you can directly send the printer command from apple devices like ipad, iPhone and you can also print from any android phone as well with Google Cloud Print or follow this guide to find similar apps which can do the the same on android phone.

As this printer comes with a touch screen, which has HP Web apps which lets you print greeting cards, puzzles for kids including Sudoku, maze and you can also print to do list and install more web apps from hp web apps store directly from touch screen on your printer.

Apart from all this it has support for support for eFax, which is a third party service which lets you send and receive 20 pages per month for free. The printer is assigned an eFax phone number to which you can direct your clientele to send faxes. Faxes received at that number are automatically sent over the Internet to your printer for you to output. To send a fax, you just touch the eFax icon on the touch screen, type in the number, and press Send. As I said it supports hp eprint with which once you have registered the printer you will have a unique email id for the printer, so if you send print docs as attachment via email to the printer email address.


It can print from memory card, SD Card and sony patented Memory Stick Duo but it does not support printing from USB thumb drives, however we also feel the port for memory card are little bit compact and small.


Output print quality was above average both on paper and good on photo paper but graphics and photos printed was really good. The text printed on good quality paper was of good quality for college and business use but not good for notices and announcements.


Another good thing about this printer is easy setup, once you get it out of the box power it up and install process will start on the touch screen which easily guides you through the entire setup and then you can choose to connect HP Photosmart 6510 printer by USB, WiFi.
