With a slick, glossy look and rounded edges, the design aesthetics of the HP Photosmart 2713 all-in-one inkjet printer are very appealing. It can print, scan, copy, and fax, with speeds of up to 20 ppm for color and 30 ppm for black. Utilizing the optional 6 colors of HP 2713 printer ink can add to operating expenses, but it is still pretty affordable.
There are a number of nice design touches to savor with the 2713. It includes both wired ethernet and Wi-Fi support built right in, with optional Bluetooth as an upgrade. HP Instant Share even lets users share their photos to the web without a computer, utilizing the PictBridge port or media card slots to load photos.
The full-color 3.5-inch display offers solid control over menus and features, and is great for previewing images and even making small edits and adjustments. The display flips up for easier viewing, and lays flat for more compact storage when not in use. It includes a flatbed scanner, and can scan at resolutions up to 2400x4800 dpi.
The input paper tray can hold up to 150 sheets, and is covered to reduce dust accumulation. There is also a small paper tray add-on for printing small sizes such as 4x6-inch photos more quickly. Reviewers noted that the trays can be a bit flimsy and hard to maneuver from time to time, however, and some also disliked the need to swap Photosmart 2713 printer ink supplies for some projects.
In addition to the standard black and tricolor HP 2713 ink cartridges, users can utilize photo color and photo gray Photosmart 2713 ink cartridges to enhance photo quality. If so, it is recommended that they seek out remanufactured HP 2713 ink supplies at a significant discount over OEM prices.
While discrete colors would have been nice, and its paper trays can be a bit tough to work with, the HP 2713 inkjet printer offers an abundance of great office features as well as excellent photo quality. With wireless support and a great color display, it is easy to look past its minor flaws.
