The HP Deskjet 1513 all-in-one inkjet printer's main attraction is its low price, but it doesn't sacrifice too much in capabilities or features to achieve it. With speeds of up to 20 pages per minute for black and 15 pages per minute for color, it is relatively fast, and high-capacity HP 1513 printer ink supplies offer a good cost per page for its class.
One of the more obvious features lacking from the 1513 is an automatic document feeder, which does mean manual feeding for scans and copies. The flatbed scanning lid is removable, however, which can be very convenient for larger media like books. The control panel is also a bit lacking, with no screen for previewing photos, and only a set of buttons for controlling common functions, and an LED light to alert users when Deskjet 1513 printer ink is low. As a result, users should expect to spend some time in the software for many tasks.
The input paper tray holds up to 100 sheets, which is just enough to be passable, but might be a bit small for those who do a lot of printing. The unit can accept media sizes up to 8.5x14 inches, and a variety of media such as envelopes, cards, labels, photo paper, and transparencies.
Prices for OEM HP 1513 ink cartridges can be a little high, and reviewers disliked the need to manually swap out the black Deskjet 1513 ink cartridge for a separate photo color supply. Using remanufactured HP 1513 ink is a good way to cut expenses, as they are more affordable than their OEM counterparts.
For buyers who don't mind the lack of a faxing feature or an automatic document feeder should find the Deskjet 1513 inkjet printer to be a good value. Lack of a preview screen and a few other conveniences means it won't be the best choice for photo printing, however.
