The HP Photosmart B8330 ink printer has a clean, sleek design that makes it a great fit for a modern office. It has fast speeds and excellent print quality, especially for photos. Those who want a versatile everyday model will be disappointed, but photo enthusiasts will love its quality and features. Printer ink costs can add up, as HP B8330 ink is a bit expensive.
While many inkjet models can do a wide variety of printing on many media types as well as offering solid photo-printing quality, the HP B8330 focuses mainly on the latter. It is more expensive than a traditional inkjet, and much of that price is for its stellar output quality, so buyers looking for a versatile day-to-day office model should look elsewhere.
The unit measures 7.3 inches by 22.6 inches by 16.1 inches and weighs 24 pounds. It doesn't have the memory card slots and preview and editing features of consumer-focused machines, so novices might opt for a more friendly experience. This is not to say that it is difficult to use, however. The included software handles the necessary tasks and features quite well, and it helps the user achieve great output with support for the more advanced features that professionals require.
Don't expect to save on printer ink though, because the price of Photosmart B8330 ink cartridges is fairly high. For the best quality, expect to buy extra HP B8330 ink cartridges. Using third-party compatible Photosmart B8330 ink will help reduce the cost somewhat, but more economical solutions are easy to find.
For absolutely great photo quality, it is hard to beat the HP B8330. Its focus on professionals might leave novice users behind, but its speed and advanced features will appeal to those who know how to utilize it fully. High costs for HP B8330 ink could be an issue for limited budgets.
