The machine can perform each of these activities without requiring the PC to be powered on. It measures 17.7 (L) in x 15.2 (B) in x 9.7 (H) in and weighs 23.4 lbs and is more on the compact side given its functionalities. The device uses thermal inkjet printing technology and supports a wide range of media including plain paper, inkjet paper, banner, transparency, card stock, label, and much more. You get a maximum print resolution of up to 1200 x 1200 dpi for monochromatic prints. The device offers an impressive maximum print speed of 32 and 31 prints per minute for monochrome and color prints, respectively, when printing from a computer. Photo prints are sharp and with excellent color clarity. This printer supports duplex printing. The input tray can hold up to 50 pages; the auto document feeder means that you do not have to manually feed multiple fax pages.
The HP Photosmart C6150 all-in-one can function in a wireless network as it has built-in Wi-Fi apart from ethernet connectivity and a hi-speed USB port for wireline connectivity. You can print directly from a camera or memory stick via PictBridge. The inbuilt memory card reader covers different formats such as CompactFlash Type I and II, IBM Microdrive, Memory Stick and more.
The faxing component includes useful features such as faxing wirelessly, remote fax retrieval, delayed transmission, auto redialing, and fax forwarding. The fax machine prints at a speed of 20 pages per minute and has a memory capacity of 90 pages.
The digital copier operates at a maximum speed of 32 and 31 copies per minute for monochrome and color copies, respectively. The maximum size reductions and enlargements are 50% and 400%, respectively. There are all-in-one devices available that will reduce documents to 25% of the original size.
The scanner offers 8-bit grayscale depth; you can scan the entire page or use the auto-select feature to cover only the portion with content in it. The built-in OCR software converts scanned content to editable content. You can dispatch scanned documents directly to your email address.
The C6150 uses 5 HP 02 color ink cartridges and 1 HP 02 black ink cartridge, which means six inkjet cartridges in all. You need to keep replacement cartridges ready as the device will not print in black even if a single color cartridge runs out.
Overall, the Photosmart C6150 is a useful device for SMBs and home businesses that need a networked printer / scanner / fax / copier for more than just text printouts but do not wish for a heavy-duty AIO.
