This MFD good for photo printing, is a sibling of the PSC-2210 (reviewed in PCQuest May 2003), and includes all its features — color thermal inkjet printer, copier, scanner and color faxing. It supports all the popular flash memory cards such as Compact Flash, SmartMedia and Sony memory stick. You can insert one of these cards from a digital camera and directly view the pictures on the MFDs LCD panel. You can then directly print the pictures from there without transferring them to a PC first. 

Quality wise, the printer gave very good mono and color prints on testing. The graphics printouts were quite realistic and the text prints were very sharp in all the modes. The printer managed to print at 7 ppm in text, and took about 5 mins to print a full-page color graphic. The copier took around 10 secs to copy and print a single text page in draft mode, which is again a decent speed. It took nearly 6 mins to scan and print a full-page color image in the best mode. 

The printer comes with HP director software for Windows and Mac that provides all the necessary utilities to use and monitor the MFD. It has an OCR, which works pretty well even for pages having text and a small color graphic. Overall a good buy.
