Top Features of the HP Photosmart 375
HP’s products are all about simplicity, efficiency and easy
customization. The Photosmart 375 is no exception here. The layout of
the user interface is designed to make this machine particularly
user-friendly, so it can be enjoyed by the whole family.
The machine comes with a 2.5-inch LCD screen which makes it simple to
view and edit photos before you print. But there’s more to this screen
than you might expect.
One of the key advantages HP has developed on some of its photo
printers is the capability of printing still shots directly from video
clips. You can playback a video directly from a memory card, USB drive
or via a USB link and watch it displayed on the printers LCD screen.
From there you can freeze on a particular frame and then print it. You
can even print a series of still shots from the same video. This is one
feature that really makes HP’s photo printers stand out from the
Affordability is another key factor to take into account when you
consider purchasing this machine. It’s price is extremely competitive
when you take into account the quality of the prints produced and the
range of features the machine boasts.
The input options for this machine make it easy to use for printing
photos without a PC. You can import images directly from a camera via
PictBridge, from a memory card or via USB. There is also an additional
option to include Bluetooth capabilities. These factors all increase
the ease of use of the machine and make it more portable.
Downsides of the HP Photosmart 375 Printer
This machine has exhibited one of the major problems to plague many HP
printers: paper jams and incorrect feeding. This is not the case on all
these printers, but a significant number of these units will display
problems when it comes to feeding paper correctly.
The other major downside of this machine – again, common to many HP
units – is that it’s fairly expensive to run. On the plus side, this
machine is more compatible with certain non-HP inks and papers than
some other HP units, so you’re not necessarily stuck buying from HP.
Consumer Response to the Photosmart 375 Printer
For the most part, consumer response to this product has been quite
positive. The simplicity of operation and excellent quality of prints
make this a popular machine.
One problem that has arisen with this machine is the appearance of
"dud" units. In other words, some customers have found their unit
simply didn’t work out of the box. To further complicate the issue,
many users have had difficulties in dealing with HP’s customer support
system, making it hard to resolve problems when they do arise.
