The HP 130 inkjet printer is an elite printing machine. At less than $200 it is excellent value for money because it does a great job of printing photos. Amongst inkjet units, it is easily one of the best photo producers. The device measures 8.8x8.0x4.7 inches and weighs a measly 3.1 lbs. If it had battery operability and Bluetooth support, it could have occupied a neat little niche as a portable photo printer.
The HP 130 ink cartridges offer maximum print resolutions of up to 4800 x1200 dpi for both black and color photo prints—another indication that it is serious about its job. The user can print on greeting cards, photo paper, plain paper and coated paper. The input paper tray has a capacity of 20 sheets. The HP 130 ink cartridges use the HP 57 Tricolor printer ink tank; in the absence of a dedicated black printer ink tank, the machine uses all three colors to develop black color. This can become expensive if black HP 130 ink is needed often.
The Photosmart 130 connects via USB and can be added to a wired network. It supports PictBridge, and the media card slots will work with SmartMedia Card, Memory Stick, CompactFlash Card - Type I/II and SD Memory Card. The status LCD display facilitates PC-less printing. The consumer can select the photos to print as they appear numbered in the LCD. The cartridge/printhead combination has a duty cycle of 125 sheets a month.
The Photo and Imaging Gallery software enables prints from email or the Web. The Image Editor lets the consumer execute basic steps such as resizing, rotating, cropping and removing red eye from photo documents. The Memories disc-creator software facilitates the creation of digital albums and slide shows. The HP Photosmart 130 inkjet printer is a great machine for photo enthusiasts and families that prefer to tweak and print borderless photos.
