The HP PhotoSmart D5300 color inkjet printer can handle a lot of different tasks, from printing high-quality photos to printing directly on CDs and DVDs, and it still provides sharp text for standard documents. Print speeds can reach up to 32 pages per minute for monochrome and 24 pages per minute for color.
Not only is the cost of HP D5300 printer ink fairly low, but there are a few other ways users can reduce operating costs. The unit has built-in duplexing for two-sided printing, which can reduce paper costs, and its Energy Star certification and features like sleep mode can help reduce its energy usage as well.
The D5300 has a relatively compact frame, though it is a bit larger than some of HP's smallest units. It measures 7.2x18x15 inches, with a weight of 12.5 pounds. It seems that speed and a larger paper capacity of 125 sheets was prioritized compactness. A full-color 1.5 inch display can work with the memory card slots for printing without the need for a computer, and there are even basic editing features available to improve images before printing.
The printer ink system uses two standard HP D5300 ink cartridges: one black and one a combined tricolor supply. There are two optional PhotoSmart D5300 ink cartridges that can be installed for better photo quality as well: photo gray and photo color. The photo gray PhotoSmart D5300 printer ink can improve the look of black-and-white photos, while the photo color HP D5300 ink provides a larger color palette for more accurate color prints.
The HP D5300 includes a lot of flexibility, like printing on CDs and DVDs, but lacks a few features like wireless support that some buyers might miss. Overall, this inkjet produces impressive photos and excellent text at an inexpensive price tag, making it a good purchase for home users.
