The HP PSC 1514 is an all-in-one inkjet printer that combines solid photo quality with convenient scanning and copying functionality to make a package that is very affordable, without cutting too many corners. Home users will appreciate its compact design, and print speeds are up to 20 pages per minute in black and 15 pages per minute in color.
While some business-centric features like an automatic document feeder and faxing capabilities would have improved the PSC 1514, they also would have raised its purchase price, which is likely why they weren't included. Instead, users get simple scanning and copying with its flatbed scanning platen, and copying can be done without the need for a computer.
The unit has a small footprint, perfect for tight spaces in a home environment. It measures 6.4x17x11.4 inches and weighs only 11.2 pounds, making it one of the smallest all-in-one devices in its class. Networking features are excluded, with only a single USB port for connecting to either a Windows or Mac computer. There is also a PictBridge port available on the front of the device for transferring photos from a digital camera.
The HP PSC 1514 printer ink system uses a combination of one black and one tricolor cartridge. The OEM versions of HP PSC 1514 ink cartridges tend to be a bit pricey, but using remanufactured HP PSC 1514 printer ink can help bring prices down. Users who want better photo quality can use the optional "photo" HP PSC 1514 ink cartridge, but it will add to the replacement costs.
While its limited feature set may not appeal to all buyers, the HP PSC 1514 is a solid inkjet printer that will provide the basics for average home users who don't do a lot of printing. Its output quality is solid and its affordable price is impressive.
