The HP PSC 1508 all-in-one inkjet cuts out a few extras in order to reach a low price tag, such as an automatic document feeder and color screen, but most home users won't miss them. It is still fairly intuitive to use, HP PSC 1508 printer ink is affordably-priced, and print speeds are quick, at up to 20 pages per minute maximum.
As a personal desktop machine, the PSC 1508 is just the right size, without having to sacrifice features for compactness. It measures 6.4x17.1x11.4 inches (HWD) and weighs 11.2 pounds without the HP PSC 1508 printer ink installed. It connects via USB for personal use, but its copy function can operate in standalone mode for added convenience.
The unit includes memory card slots on its front panel, as well as a PictBridge port. This allows for easier transfer of photos, but users will have to rely on the included software to do the heavy lifting, as the lack of a color display makes previewing or editing images impossible. For buyers who generally spend their time at the computer and not the control panel, however, this won't be much of an issue. The input paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets, but the output tray is limited to 50 sheets, so the tray may need to be emptied in the middle of larger projects.
Both black and tricolor HP PSC 1508 ink cartridges are included with the device, and an optional "photo color" version can replace the black supply for 6-color printing, if desired. Prices for HP PSC 1508 ink cartridges are fairly affordable, but remanufactured versions from third-party sellers are often available for less than half of the OEM prices.
For buyers who don't mind a few minor sacrifices for a lower price, the HP PSC 1508 inkjet printer strikes a good balance. It includes the most essential features, while extras like a color screen are jettisoned to keep the price low.
