HP Photosmart 1315

The Photosmart 1315 is extremely versatile, but it's not cheap

WHAT'S HOT: The Photosmart 1315's biggest strengths are its flexibility and its lovely photo glossies, which show great detail, shading, and textures. Unlike most of the photo printers we've tested to date, the Photosmart 1315 prints text adequately and handles narrow parallel lines reasonably well. (As with most printers, text and line art look even better on high-quality paper.) Gray-scale and color graphics display very nice detail and photo shading. The 1315 prints text almost twice as quickly as the other photo models in our review, at a tolerable 4.4 pages per minute (though the 1315's 0.6-ppm graphics speed is less than half that of the Epson Stylus Photo 785EPX at 1.3 ppm).
