Boots Premium Quality Photo Paper review
Boots’ 260gsm Premium Quality Photo Paper is more expensive than HP’s paper, but it proved good enough to place fifth and sixth overall for fade resistance and quality respectively.
The best prints were in Epson printers, with quality similar to the master prints of the R240 and R800. It also reduces the dark and yellow cast of the R340’s original print. Only with the R1800 did it stumble, exaggerating the original’s odd milky appearance.
When you factor in fade resistance, it was only the R800’s print that had the great combination of quality and permanence; the R240 and R340 prints are best kept out of strong sunlight, fading slightly after three months. Prints from the HP 8250, 8750 and Lexmark Z735 were pleasing, but slightly yellow in the other HP and Lexmark devices.
Considering it’s a high-street brand, Boot’s paper is surprisingly pricey, but it’s readily available and is capable of good results in the right printer.
