Photo enthusiasts will be delighted by the HP Photosmart 3214 all-in-one inkjet printer and its ability to produce lab-quality photos right at home. Its comes at an affordable price, prints at speeds of up to 32 pages per minute, and can also scan and copy. High-capacity HP 3214 printer ink supplies make it inexpensive to operate as well.
The unit itself measures 8.7x18.3x15.6 inches, which is compact enough to use on a desktop, and its weight of 26.2 pounds (not including the Photosmart 3214 printer ink supplies) is light enough for an individual to move it around easily. Users with a home network will be glad to know that the 3214 comes with an ethernet port in addition to its USB port, which makes it simple to share, and the front panel includes a PictBridge port and memory card slots for direct printing options.
The input paper capacity of 100 sheets is adequate, but might be limiting to users who do a lot of printing. A separate tray can hold up to 20 sheets, with a straighter path for specialty media such as photo paper that shouldn't be bent. The unit includes HP's Image Zone software that helps users organize and edit photos before printing for the best results.
There are six Photosmart 3214 ink cartridges required for operating, but each can be replaced individually to reduce waste. HP 3214 ink cartridges are available in standard and high-capacity versions, allowing buyers to choose a lower upfront price or a lower cost per page. Remanufactured HP 3214 ink is available from many third-party vendors for lower prices as well.
For buyers who want excellent photo output but also have the need to scan and copy, the HP 3214 inkjet printer is a worthy choice. Its speed and output quality are both solid, and extras like networking and direct printing serve to enhance its value.
