As a hub for creative projects, the HP PSC 1613 all-in-one inkjet printer succeeds at making creativity simple for home users. Users get fast speeds of up to 18 pages per minute of color output and 23 pages per minute in black. It also has an impressive optimized resolution of up to 4800x1200 dpi for sharp and detailed photos.
Buyers expecting a full complement of office features will find a few things lacking, such as an automatic document feeder and faxing capabilities. The unit can copy and even print in standalone mode without a computer. By utilizing the PictBridge port, users can connect a digital camera for printing, or insert a memory card into one of several slots on the front of the device.
The footprint of the PSC 1613 is only 17.3x11.2 inches, and it is only 6.8 inches tall. Combine that with a weight of 12.1 pounds (with the HP PSC 1613 printer ink installed) and you have a lightweight and compact device that is easy to share a desk with.
The only connection option provided is the USB port, with no sharing via Wi-Fi or ethernet network included. Given its limited capacities, with a 100-sheet paper tray, for example, it is probably better-suited for individual use anyway.
The standard configuration of the HP PSC 1613 ink cartridges includes one tricolor and one black supply. Users can replace the black HP PSC 1613 ink cartridge with a separate photo color supply that turns the unit into a 6-color printer. If users go this route, however, remanufactured HP PSC 1613 printer ink is recommended, as replacement costs will be very high otherwise.
The design of the HP PSC 1613 inkjet printer has a real focus on photos, but doesn't neglect the scan and copy functions either. The result is a well-rounded machine that is a steal for such a low price.
