HP 1315 Printer Information
Although it has an expensive price tag, the HP Photosmart 1315 is ranked as one of the top photo printers in its class and is worth consideration for amateur photographers working from home. While speeds of only 17 pages per minute for monochrome documents are moderately slow, the device can quickly print 4x6-inch photos in as fast as 30 seconds. The unit does benefit from a superb set of features and inexpensive Photosmart 1315 printer ink, but only enthusiasts looking to frequently print their own photo albums or scrapbooks should consider this pricey inkjet printer.
The device includes a host of photo-centric features such as direct printing support for a variety of popular media cards like CompactFlash and Memory Stick and a color LCD for previewing photos without a PC. PC-free editing is also provided on the control panel, which has options to enable users to edit, rotate and crop photos. For making edits with a computer, the 1315 comes with a printer CD that includes Photo Printing and Photo Image software for more advanced editing tools. An additional rear USB port will allow users to connect the device directly, with compatibility for either Windows or Mac operating systems.
Another benefit to this printer is its two paper paths, which will make it easy to switch between different types of media. The 100-sheet main input tray supports plain paper and the second 20-sheet tray supports photo media. When printing on specialty media like premium glossy photo paper, images tested a tad below par with slight oversaturation, but a sharp resolution of 2400x1200 dpi using color HP 1315 printer ink.
The device uses one tricolor supply that contains cyan, yellow and magenta Photosmart 1315 ink and a separate black HP 1315 ink cartridge. Each tricolor supply can last 450 pages and the black HP 1315 ink cartridge has a capacity of 830 pages, which are affordable if users opt for remanufactured supplies over pricey OEM replacements.
While it's packed full of photo editing tools and flexible connection options for direct image printing, the 1315 is limited by an output that doesn't perform to the standards of its price range. Unless buyers are tempted by it easy-to-use photo features and low running costs, there are other inkjet units that can print better photos for the money.
