HP Photosmart A826

 

It looks like it's from outer space, but is HP's Photosmart A826 really out of this world?

HP PhotoSmart A826 review

 

A distinctive design, but will it's prints match expectations?

Touchscreen ; Easy to use ; Decent print quality ; Fun features

Odd styling won't be to everyone's taste ; Pricier than most rivals

The A826 delivers good quality pictures at both 6x4 and 7x5 sizes. The styling is an acquired taste but there’s plenty to play with. The big screen is just perfect for slideshows

HP Photosmart A826 review

 

Although it can only print 6x4 and 7x5 inch photos, HP's odd-looking blue and white pod is only a little smaller than most of the A4 printers.

It's a bit Dr Who, this one. Great screen, but not the best value.

HP Photosmart A826 photo printer

 

The HP Photosmart A826 is a kiosk-shaped compact photo printer that features a 7in touchscreen and a stylus.

The HP Photosmart A826 is a great choice for beginning photographers who want to print their digital photos as easily as possible. The printer's case design could use some improvement for greater ease of handling, and dark prints appear a little dull;...

Best Small Format Photo Printer

 

With its 7-inch screen and its unique small TV appearance, the HP Photosmart A826 distinguishes itself from its competitors. The integral card reader accepts all main card formats currently used in the market, and you just have to insert a card to see...

HP A826

 

Cramming tons of features into a titchy box that looks a bit like one of those robots in crappy sci-fi film from the 70s, Silent Running, the HPA826 is worth every single 135,000 pennies you outlay for it.

Prints bursting with colour. Super-fast printing speed

The price gets pushed up when you factor in ink and photo paper

Prints? Charming! That's what we think of the HP A826 anyway. This is royalty among printers.

Home Photo Printing with Photosmart A826 : HP Photosmart A826 Home Photo Centre

 

Although taking photographs with your digital camera is fun, even more enjoyment can result from creating your own prints and sharing them with others.

While the printing of photographs could be carried out using a basic inkjet or multifunction device, for increased functionality and ease of use you might prefer a dedicated photo printer such as the HP Photosmart A826 Home Photo Centre model. Despite...

HP - PhotoSmart A826

 

HP has a range of photo printers, but nothing that looks or works like the Photosmart A826. It's bigger than a typical dedicated photo printer; about the size of a fashion rucksack. This is a design ...

The Photosmart A826 is a great little printer, particularly if you're interested in standalone photo printing. The ability to handle 18 x 13cm prints as well as 15 x 10cm is handy, but not nearly as handy as the touch-screen for selection and mark-up....
