With the HP Photosmart 2450, users get an inkjet photo printer, scanner, fax machine, and copier in one device that is compact enough to use on a desktop. 6-color printing is possible with optional HP 2450 printer ink supplies, and the device is rated at speeds of up to 21 pages per minute for black and 15 pages per minute in color.
As should be obvious from its name, the Photosmart 2450 is heavily focused on photos. Not only can it print at an impressive maximum resolution of 1200x4800 dpi, but adding a photo color Photosmart 2450 ink cartridge upgrades to 6-ink printing for a wide color palette. Even the scanning feature is focused on great photo quality, and the ability to print directly from memory cards will be a time-saver for photo enthusiasts.
With dimensions of 9.3x19x15.4 inches, the 2450 is by no means small, and it is certainly larger than the average single-function inkjet printer, but it won't be too imposing on a user's desk surface. It lacks an automatic document feeder, but this isn't surprising for such an affordable and compact machine. Professional reviews mentioned its fast speeds and memory cards slots as positives, but that its output quality was not overly impressive.
Even with a fairly low upfront price, buyers might eat up the savings in replacement HP 2450 printer ink costs. HP 2450 ink cartridges are on the expensive end of its class, and the optional photo color supply adds even more to the operating costs. Using remanufactured Photosmart 2450 ink is a good option for those looking to save money.
The Photosmart 2450 is quite capable for an all-in-one machine, and photo enthusiasts will like features such as memory card slots and its bundled software. Overall, though, there are better competing models in its class, with lower operating costs.
