The HP PSC 1615 all-in-one inkjet excels at producing bright, colorful photos, but also extends its talents to copying and scanning, for a versatile solution for home users. Some of its functions can operate independently of the computer, but its included software bundle is impressive, and should be put to good use.
The PSC 1615 inkjet is no slouch when it comes to speed, producing up to 23 pages per minute in black and 18 pages per minute in color, with slightly slower copy times. Dedicated buttons for tasks like "Print Photos" and "Start Copy" make navigating its control panel easier, which is a good thing as the screen is monochromatic and fairly limited in the feedback it provides. It does give basic alerts for error messages and notifies users when their HP PSC 1615 printer ink is running low, however.
The HP Image Zone Software provides a place to store and organize photos as well as preparing images for printing. Users can also use the HP Memories Disc Creator to create photo discs to share with family members. Memory card slots and a PictBridge port are included on the front of the device for easier loading of images.
Printer ink prices are a sticking point, with HP PSC 1615 ink cartridges significantly more expensive than some of the competition. There are multiple capacities of HP PSC 1615 ink cartridges available, which can help control the cost per page, but it will still be expensive to operate for users who do any serious volume of printing.
The speed, quality, and bundled software of the PSC 1615 are some of its best features. It is also very affordably-priced, but the cost of HP PSC 1615 ink may be a major sticking point, especially for those on a tight budget.
