The HP Photosmart D5100 inkjet printer is designed to produce lab-quality photos in the comfort of a home or small office, and it can deliver output speeds of up to 31 pages per minute. Its frame is a little bulky, but its professional output quality and affordable HP D5100 printer ink supplies make it worth a few tradeoffs.
The design of the D5100 includes a little more bulk than most buyers might be expecting in a home inkjet printer. It measures 6.7 inches tall, but has a large footprint of 15x18 inches. It is light in weight, however, at only 10.8 pounds, even with the Photosmart D5100 printer ink supplies installed. The front panel includes memory card slots and a PictBridge port for printing without a PC, but it lacks a full-color display for previewing and editing, making this a more difficult task. An optional Bluetooth adapter is available as well.
The input paper tray can hold up to 125 sheets, and it supports sizes up to 8.5x24 inches for panoramas, which provides a good bit of versatility in media types and sizes. The machine also includes HP's Auto Sense technology to detect the media and set the correct quality settings automatically.
The system has two slots for HP D5100 ink cartridges, but four different types are available for use. In addition to the standard black and tricolor Photosmart D5100 ink cartridges, the former can be replaced with either a Photo Color or Photo Gray HP D5100 ink supply, depending on what type of photo is being printed.
Although it is showing its age, the D5100 is still a solid choice for high-quality photo printing at home or in the small office. Buyers who plan to do their photo editing on a computer and don't mind the lack of a full-color display will find it to be a great choice for their needs.
