Given the HP Photosmart D7400 printer's feature set, which includes wireless networking, and its excellent photo quality, its affordable price tag is almost hard to believe. A large touchscreen display puts functionality front and center, Photosmart D7400 printer ink prices are affordable, and multiple connection options are available for direct printing.
For an affordable inkjet model, the text quality of the D7400 leaves a little to be desired. It can produce readable text down to small font sizes, however, and speeds are rated at up to 34 pages per minute in its fastest mode. Since the main input tray is limited to 100 sheets, only low-volume use is recommended. A separate tray can hold up to 20 4x6-inch sheets, however, doing away with the manual feed of some models.
Setting up the device is quite simple. In fact, with so many direct printing options such as the PictBridge port and memory card slots, users could simply install the HP D7400 ink and begin printing. Otherwise, users simply install the software from the CD and either plug it directly into a PC via USB, into a network via ethernet, or set it up for Wi-Fi access. Wireless setup requires a few more steps, but is well-documented in the manual.
Affordable HP D7400 printer ink is another one of the device's benefits. Even though the HP Vivera system uses six colors of Photosmart D7400 ink cartridges, they are pretty inexpensive to replace. Still, those who print a lot of photos especially may want to consider remanufactured HP D7400 ink cartridges to reduce the cost by as much as 50% without sacrificing quality.
Although its limited paper capacity is a bit of a drawback, there is little else to complain about with the D7400. Its numerous direct printing features, wired and wireless connectivity and fast print speeds make it an appealing model for lab-quality photo printing at home.
