HP Photosmart 375 review

Price when reviewed

HP’s white-and-silver 375 is the top-end 6 x 4in Photosmart and comes with a Bluetooth USB dongle for wireless printing. You can also print from virtually all media cards, including xD-Picture Cards, as well as any PictBridge-compatible digital camera.

Thanks to the 2.5in colour LCD screen, it’s simple to select which photos you want to print, and you can zoom, crop and remove red-eye all without using a PC. In fact, with the optional battery installed, you can print your photos anywhere.

Borderless 6 x 4in photos take around one minute, 40 seconds to print – not the quickest, but the results are worth the wait. Quality is excellent, with extremely sharp detail, vibrant colours and great contrast. The only time it scored less than five out of six was on the macro shot where transitions and saturation weren’t quite up to scratch.

As you can swap between the included tri-colour and tri-grey cartridges, you can obtain superb mono prints – our test photo showed excellent detail where the Olympus didn’t. Just bear in mind you have to print an alignment sheet each time you swap.

Menus allow you to print with or without borders. Choose to have borders and you can have up to four photos on each sheet – there’s also a passport photo mode. Prints emerge tacky from the 375, so it’s easy to smudge them before they’re dry. Fortunately, fade resistance behind glass is excellent and you shouldn’t notice any fading for around 80 years.

At this price, the HP obliterates the competition for features while offering outstanding quality and image permanence for 22p per print. It isn’t the fastest, but the speed compromise is easily worth it.
