Buyers looking for a rock-bottom price on an all-in-one inkjet printer can't do much better than the HP Deskjet 2514, but they will have to accept a few limitations. Its ISO speeds are rated at up to 4.5 pages per minute for color and 7.5 ppm for black-and-white, and HP 2514 printer ink is easy on the budget, but lack of networking and a very limited copy function could be an issue for some buyers.
As a color printer, the 2514 does quite well. It can reach up to 600 dpi for black output and up to 4800x1200 optimized dpi for color, which gives good results for the price. Scanning is equally good, with OCR capabilities included, but it does rely on the software to do the heavy lifting, with no memory card slots or front USB for saving files.
Those who plan to do a lot of copying may want to consider upgrading to a more capable model. The lack of an automatic document feeder makes multi-page scanning a slow, manual affair, and the simple control panel doesn't offer much in the way of options. The copy speed also maxes out at 5 copies per minute, so it is a slow operation all around.
Consumers get their choice of either standard or high-capacity HP 2514 ink cartridges, with the latter offering double the capacity for mot much extra in price. This gives the high-capacity Deskjet 2514 ink cartridges much more cost-effective, and makes them the better choice for those looking to trim down the cost per page of Deskjet 2514 printer ink.
Although reviewers complained about its lack of networking and the use of a tricolor HP 2514 ink supply, the Deskjet 2514 could still be a good fit for home users with simple needs. This all-in-one inkjet model's speeds aren't overly impressive, but its low cost is very appealing.

The Deskjet 2514 can copy, scan, and print, and is available at a very affordable purchase price. It can print up to 22 pages per minute in black and 16 pages per minute in color, but it does lack any networking capabilities, connecting only via USB.
Although the model shown differs in appearance, the process is the same.
Make sure the printer is powered on, and lift up on the top cover, then wait a moment for the cartridges to move toward the center for easier access.
Find the empty HP 2514 cartridge based on the color coding, and raise the small cover. Lift the cartridge up out of the opening.
Prepare the replacement Deskjet 2514 ink cartridge by removing it from its box, then taking it out of the plastic bag. Squeeze together the handles of the plastic protector as you pry it away from the cartridge, then remove the tape strip at the bottom as well.
Insert the new 2514 ink cartridge into the printer’s opening, then close the small cover to snap and snap it into place. Lower the printer’s main cover to complete the installation.
You are now ready to resume printing with your HP Deskjet 2514 printer.
