With a design that seems straight out of a science fiction movie, the HP Photosmart 7345 may look complicated at first glance, but this photo inkjet printer is actually quite simple to use. It can print up to 17 pages per minute in black-and-white and up to 11 pages per minute in color, and its affordable HP 7345 printer ink makes it inexpensive to operate.
The design of the 7345 is mostly compact, though it is a little larger than some models in its class. It measures 6.3x18.7x15.4 inches and weighs 14.3 pounds. Some of the extra size comes from the memory card readers built into its control panel, and a small LCD screen helps users determine which photos to print, though it doesn't offer an image preview, only text. The main tray holds up to 100 sheets of plain paper, with dividers for 4x6-inch photo paper and other media types.
For more than simple printing from memory cards, users can connect the device to the computer and load images into the included software. From there, making edits and enhancing photos is simple and intuitive, and extras like disc creation software can help users store their memories on optical media, which is a great way to share with friends and family while conserving Photosmart 7345 printer ink.
The unit mainly operates with a tricolor Photosmart 7345 ink cartridge that can provide up to 400 pages, and a black supply that can provide up to 520 pages. A separate HP 7345 ink cartridge for "Photo Color" is available, but is only rated to provide up to 140 photos. Since OEM prices are high, users should consider remanufactured HP 7345 ink as a cost-saving alternative.
The Photosmart 7345 offers just enough features and good enough output quality to make it a solid choice for home photo inkjet printing. Its speeds could be faster, however, and the lack of networking and more advanced features are a bit of a drawback compared to some of the competition.
