The HP Photosmart 3310 ink All-in-One offers stand-alone scanning, printing, faxing, and copying. As an AIO for small business owners and home business users, it is one of the best alternatives out there. Replacement inkjet cartridges are easily available. This printer offers speeds of up to 32 ppm for monochrome and 31 ppm for color prints.
This AIO weighs 26.5 lbs and has the following dimensions 18.3 x 15.6 x 8.7 in. It offers a maximum printing resolution of up to 1200 dpi for monochromatic prints. The HP 3310 ink cartridge printer can cost between $395 and $599, if we compare it with the 3210 which costs around $500, we find that the 3310 offers additional features such as fax, a larger 2.5-by-3-inch color display, and wireless networking for up to three computers. This, in addition to the standard USB connectivity and ethernet for wired networking. Color scans and photos are not really the best that you can get. Also, the HP 3310 inkjet cartridge printer lacks an automatic document feeder which means you need to be present to scan multiple pages. You can print cards, labels, envelopes, photo paper, plain paper, transparencies, and iron-on transfers. This inkjet printer is supplied with six ink cartridges of HP Vivera Inks. The HP 02 Black starter ink cartridge is of 16 ml volume. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan and Light Magenta color inkjet cartridges are of 4.5 ml capacity. The black ink cartridge yields an impressive 660 color graphics pages.
You can scan transparencies and negatives on the HP Photosmart 3310, you can scan and fax directly from your PC, thereby saving both time and consumables. PictBridge compatibility for direct printing and two paper trays - one for A4 and the other for 6 in x 4 in photo paper are neat features available with the 3310. The 3310 is PC and Mac compatible. The HP Image Zone Photo and Imaging Software available with the machine lets you execute basic image editing functions but cannot really replace a dedicated image editing software. A full install will take up 1,133 MB of space on your computer.
If you are looking for a printing machine that can handle a workload of 3000 prints per month and yield dark, legible text even at 2-point size then the HP Photosmart 3310 inkjet printer is as good a bet as any other printer in its price range. If good quality scans and color photos are integral to your requirement then you could consider other multifunction devices.
