The HP Deskjet 2510 is a fairly typical all-in-one inkjet printer, but it includes a straight paper path that is rarely seen in its class. Its ISO print speeds can reach up to 7.5 pages per minute in black and 4.5 pages per minute in color, and "XL" versions of HP 2510 printer ink are fairly affordable. Users won't get a lot of extras, however.
The design is fairly simple, with clean lines and a dark gray color that blends in with its surroundings. It measures 6.22x17x11.9 inches and weighs 8.6 pounds without Deskjet 2510 ink installed, so it should be a comfortable fit in a small office environment. Connection options are limited to USB, with no wired or wireless network support.
As mentioned, the 2510 is a bit unique in that is sports a straight paper path that loads from the top rear instead of the front. The tray can only hold up to 60 sheets, however, and it does add a bit to the height of the machine. Still, this should result in fewer paper jams and less bending of specialty media like photo paper and index cards.
Reviewers noted that print quality is quite solid, with fairly sharp text and good color output, if a little pale in comparison to other models. Reviewers were disappointed by the lack of extras such as memory card slots, however.
Affordable printer ink seems to have been a design priority, and multiple capacities of HP 2510 ink cartridges helps in this regard. Users can choose from standard or "XL" versions of Deskjet 2510 ink cartridges, depending on whether they want a lower upfront price or a lower cost per page. Remanufactured HP 2510 ink is available with both benefits, which makes it an excellent choice for bargain-hunters.
For a simple, affordable inkjet, the Deskjet 2510 is fairly impressive. Those who plan to print on specialty media frequently will like the straight paper path, and options for controlling operating costs are helpful.

HP Deskjet 2510 Instructional Video Transcript
The Deskjet 2510 offers a lot of features for a very low price, as it can scan, copy, and print. The input paper tray holds 60 sheets, and it can print up to 7.5 pages per minute. It connects via USB, so it lacks the wireless features of other models in its lineup, but home users on a budget will appreciate its affordability.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the process is the same.
Make sure the printer is powered up before you start, then raise the top cover of the printer, which is slightly below the scanning lid. Wait a moment for the cartridges to move into view.
With the color cartridge on the left and the black cartridge on the right, raise the small cover and lift the HP 2510 ink cartridge out of the opening.
Prepare the new Deskjet 2510 cartridge by taking it out of the box and removing and discarding the plastic bag. There is a plastic protector on the cartridge that can be removed by pinching the top and bottom handles as you pry it away. Find the packing tape at the bottom and pull to remove it.
Insert the new 2510 cartridge into the opening in the printer, then lower the small lid into place. When you’re sure it is closed properly, close the main lid of the printer as well.
You are now ready to resume printing with your HP Deskjet 2510 printer.
