With a 3.5-inch touchscreen control panel and extras like memory card slots, the HP Photosmart D7200 inkjet printer goes a bit beyond the basics, while still maintaining an affordable upfront price. Its print speeds are impressive, at up to 34 pages per minute, and it can output a 4x6-inch photo in as little as 10 seconds. For accurate color photos, the system even uses six colors of HP D7200 printer ink.
The D7200 does have its limitations. Its input paper capacity is only 100 sheets, and the output tray only holds 50 sheets. It also has a recommended monthly duty cycle of 3,000 pages, so it certainly is not fit for high-volume use. The average home users won't find these minor drawbacks to be a problem, however.
For such an affordable device, the bright 3.5-inch touchscreen display is quite impressive. It offers easier control of operations, as well as previews of photos loaded from either the memory card slots or the PictBridge port. Best of all, it folds down out of the way when not in use, making the machine a bit more compact. With dimensions of 9.3x18.2x19.7 inches, it is barely compact enough for desktop use, but not exactly bulky, and users won't have any trouble moving it around, with a weight of just 17.6 pounds (not including the Photosmart D7200 ink cartridges). It includes both a USB and ethernet port, for network sharing.
If buyers don't like the idea of replacing six colors of printer ink, they can rest assured that prices for HP D7200 ink cartridges are not too expensive. Those looking for an alternative, however, will find that remanufactured Photosmart D7200 ink is around half the cost of OEM supplies, and can drastically reduce the cost per page.
For the user who desires lab-quality photo inkjet printing, the D7200 will suffice, and it does a solid job with standard text documents as well. Inexpensive HP D7200 ink makes it affordable to operate, and its networking support is a nice bonus.
