HP Photosmart 8250 Video
This photo printer's pleasing output and plentiful direct-printing options make it a good choice for the nascent photo enthusiast.
Aside from the never-ending name, the HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-in-One Printer looks good and prints high-quality photos at competitive speeds. We also appreciate effort put into the downloadable applications for the interactive touch screen, but the innovation is offset by a hefty price tag. Unless Web-connectivity and touch screens are a top priority, we recommend checking out HP's Photosmart multifunction printers that still offer high performance at a much lower cost.
Whether you work from home, in a small office, or with varied home printing, scanning, faxing, and copying needs, this all-in-one takes care of business.
The HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One printer makes it easy to increase productivity thanks to its streamlined user interface. The fax, copy, print, and scanning features boast helpful extras like double-sided printing, wireless connectivity, separate photo trays, and quick-access control panel buttons, all while maintaining lab-quality photos and a low cost to print.
The HP Photosmart 5510 all-in-one printer demonstrates reliable performance with excellent scores in both speed and quality tests, but falters in its feature offering. For users who need more than just speeds and feeds, I prefer the Epson Stylus NX430 instead.
Ease of use and an affordable price don't make up for this camera's poor performance, below-average image quality, and lack of optical zoom.
We wouldn't recommend it for high-output households or large offices, but the HP Photosmart D110a provides inexpensive access to HP's clever new ePrint and Web-connected apps.
A cloud-printing all-in-one device for busy homes and offices.
For all the cool points the HP Photosmart eStation C510 earns for Web-connectivity features like ePrint and the detachable Android-powered Zeen, we're holding off on our recommendation until HP drops the price and fixes the user interface bugs and network errors that marred our testing.

HP Photosmart 8250 Review
The good: Economical and fast when using the default settings; robust standalone operation; multiple connectivity options; Mac and Windows compatible.
The bad: Grainy prints; large and heavy.
The bottom line: Speed and economy make the HP Photosmart 8250 a reasonable choice for family photo printing.
