Product Description

One of the world's smallest flatbed all-in-one multifunction devices, the HP PSC 1210 prints, copies, and scans with a modest 16.8-by-10.2-inch footprint. With this one-stop imaging center, you receive true-to-life photo-quality results with up to 4,800 optimized dpi resolution (with premium photo paper and 1,200 x 1,200 dpi input). Printing and copying speeds are plenty fast for home users, coming in at 12 pages per minute maximum in black and up to 10 ppm in color. With the 1210, home copying becomes exceptionally convenient, even without a PC. You'll enjoy simple one-button operation and easy enlargements.

The flatbed scanner lets you easily scan family photos, important documents, or even books or other 3-D objects. Use the included HP photo and imaging software to get creative with your scanned images--print photos, stickers, iron-on T-shirt transfers, and unique scrapbook pages.

HP provides an instant setup reference guide that will have you up and running in just a few minutes. Note that the printer is PC and Mac compatible; only Mac versions OS 9.1, OS X v 10.1.x and 10.2.3 or higher are supported. A one-year warranty provides protection on parts and labor.

Verified Purchase
Okay, so this is HP's newest all-in-one.
As expected of these All-in-one's not all features are equally good, so I'll review each of them separately.
Printer: A+
This is real Photo-printer. I printed 3 4"x6" photos captured by my digital camera at 1600x1200 resolution, on the FREE sample Premium Plus Photo Glossy provided. Result? Absolute TOP notch. There's simply no way anyone can tell that the photos were not developed at a Kodak studio.
Copier: A-
You can use the copier without having to turn on your computer. I copied a color photo (of a face) in black and white mode, and it looked pretty decent. Document copy was excellent. Copying great photos (sunset) is not so good because of the scanner... see next item.
Scanner: B-
I tried scanning a stunning sunset photo taken from my SLR film camera. The result was disappointing. There are noticeable scan lines in the scanned image. It looked bad when "Set as desktop background". Didnt even try printing it. Text scanning was ok though...
Package: A-
Contents include: Printer, Power-cord, Free Glossy paper samples, good imaging software. All you need after getting your printer is a USB cable (why can't they bundle it??). I picked up a $7 USB2 6ft cable at local [store].
Overall Verdict: A
For the price, it beats HP's own photo printers hands down. (and they don't even copy/scan). So if you need a photo printer, with a decent copier and ok scanner, PSC1210 is the way to go. Not to mention that its the smallest All-in-one available. However, if you're looking to scan top-notch images to burn on a CD, invest in a standalone scanner. My friend has a epson perfection which scanned the sunset shot just fine.

It is hard to believe that this printer is about $100. I have been using the printer for a few months now.
1. Photo-printer, scanner, color and B & W copier -- all in one.
2. Amazing performance for all of the above functions.
3. Photo printing quality amazing (on HP photo-paper).
4. More silent than my previous Lexmark Z52 printer.
5. Never had a paper jam even once (so far).
6. Approx $100!!! This is worth $300 of money spent on Lexmark!
7. Unlike Lexmark, cartridges do not go bad every now and then.
Ink is costly, but then so is for every printer.
No option to choose greyscale printout. I do 'not' see this as a problem because I have almost always dried up color ink than using it completely (with Lexmark).
Software is a resource hog. Computer takes longer to start. In the Task-Manager (Windows 2000), I see several HP executables and services running all the time. I see this as the one and only weakness in this printer.
Use HP photo-paper only. (No I am do not work for HP.) I tried photo-paper from Staples. Black looks real black only on HP photo-paper. This HP paper is costly by the way (~ $1 per Letter sheet)!
On ordinary paper too, photo looks better than many other printers.
(I tried several printers on display. Canon photo-quality is good but smears extra ink on the paper. Agreed that the printers on display are often abused (!), but still this is what your printer will most likely do! Confirmed from reviews on Canon i560 etc.)
1. Follow all the steps of the installation process as listed on the included chart. They are all important as mentioned! Printer will not work otherwise. Following these steps by itself was easy and printer was up and running in 10 minutes.

After purchasing a lexmark all-in-one unit about a year ago, I got very skeptical that all-in-one printers could be of comparable quality to dedicated printers. HP has blown me away with the 1210. This unit is superb at printing quality quickly, has an excellent scanner that can scan at multiple resolutions. I tried scanning in a photo at 600 dpi and was very pleased with the sharpness and color accuracy. The last feature, and definitely not the least of them, is the copying feature. I can copy documents in black & white or in color very quickly, and it doesn't even involve the computer. I just hit copy on the printer, and instantly, the document is scanned and a copy is printed. On top of all this quality, this unit is extremely compact, and just looking at it, you might not realize that there's a scanner/copier in that machine capable of scanning quality scans of full size documents.

Overall this HP multifunction is a fantastic deal. Most regular printers will cost this much, and half of them won't do as good a job.
-EXCELLENT photo printing on photo paper - looks like a professional print, and no need for a different photo cartridge.
-Easy copying - one button, very fast
-Fast text printing
-Quick hi-res scans
-Fairly efficient with ink usage.
-I found the HP scanning software to be a little slow and clunky
-Doesn't allow you to reverse-print documents, so you have to reshuffle them
-Photo printing a little bit slow, though that depends on the size
None of the cons were deal-breakers for me. For a hundred bucks, you get the same resolution as HP's dedicated photo printers, plus a nice scanner and copier. Also, I like the fact that my desk doesn't look like it has a Xerox machine sitting on it - the PSC 1210 is much smaller and "hipper" looking than a lot of huge multi-function machines. I would definitely recommend!
