Even if buyers don't appreciate the futuristic styling of the HP Photosmart 7459 inkjet printer, they will probably like its low price and solid photo quality. Topping out at only 12 pages per minute in speed, it isn't exactly fast, but third-party HP 7459 printer ink is affordable enough to keep it cost-effective.
As mentioned, the curved look of the 7459 is quite striking, and it has a fairly minimalist control panel, though it does have a small LCD screen. This works in concert with the media card slots on the front of the device, and allows users to select and print photos without the need for a computer, though it is not capable of previewing images, only displaying text.
The unit measures 6.1 inches tall, with a footprint of only 8.7x18.7 inches, so needless to say, it is built for tight spaces. Its weight of only 7.3 pounds (which includes the Photosmart 7459 ink supplies) means users can just move it out of the way when they are finished printing.
A maximum media capacity of 100 sheets is fairly standard for such a small device, and it can handle sizes up to 8.5x14 for a little extra flexibility. Borderless printing is possible for many popular photo sizes, and the maximum enhanced resolution of 4800x1200 can combine with the optional 6 colors of HP 7459 printer ink to produce excellent photo quality and accurate colors.
The unit starts out with one black HP 7459 ink cartridge and a tricolor supply that combines cyan, magenta, and yellow. Users can add an optional Photosmart 7459 ink cartridge designed for "photo color" that includes light cyan, light magenta, and black, and replaces the single black supply.
The Photosmart 7459 is a fairly standard photo inkjet for the home user, and it can provide excellent photo output. If buyers can look past its slow speeds, it can be an excellent choice for home printing.
