HP Photosmart 7960 Printer Review

The HP PhotoSmart 7960 features HP's exclusive photo resolution enhancement technology: HP PhotoREt Pro utilizes eight-ink printing, ultra small ink drops, true neutral grays, and photo blacks to print everything from professional color images to impressive black-and-white prints with accurate shadow detail. The eight colors come from the No. 59 gray photo cartridge with two shades of gray ink and a special photo black; from the No. 57 tri-color cartridge with cyan, magenta, and yellow; and from the No. 58 photo cartridge with photo cyan and photo magenta (the black in the No. 58 is not used for eight-color printing).

You'll get full-color, professional-quality print results with the HP PhotoSmart 7960 Photo Printer. Delivering everyday print output at up to 21 ppm or 4-by-6-inch photos in just over 90 seconds, the 7960 can handle a variety of tasks.

ShutterBug has just posted a review of this printer on their website. They say this about this printer-
"Although some other brands of printers offer higher speed, more types of media plus extra functions, the eight-color HP Photosmart 7960 is easy to use and produces stunning color and monochrome prints. This is also the most affordable “archival” printer on the market, great for making photos that will last for many decades. The built-in monitor, plus the many direct printing capabilities, also make it a “best value” in its price category. If you have never considered an HP photo printer before, be sure to ask for a full demonstration of this model while shopping. Expect to be impressed with the versatility, overall ease of use and with the superb photo quality that this printer can deliver. "
