If you're currently in search of an economical upgrade to your printer machine in your home office, you should checkout the HP PSC 1315 All-in-One. I bought this printer without much expectation; although I was initially impressed mostly by its sleek and compact design. How a small and inexpensive AIO printer will fare could be quite intriguing but I've been through a lot of printer disappointments before another one that can prove my ability on misjudging is not going to make a lot of difference.

First off, I settled with this latest in HP since I have no issues with HP regarding ink usage particularly when it comes to inkjet printing. I'm quite comfortable with the HP cartridges as they come in smaller sizes which last long enough for my kind of use. But lately however, I have a mind to buy the special photo ink cartridge so I can have a better appreciation of HP's Image Zone software.

You see the more I get to know of HP PSC 1315 All-In-One's capabilities, the more I get convinced that I made a good decision in choosing this printer. Whereas I thought it would be difficult to manage those special features where I could print stickers, CD labels and even T-shirt transfers, I found the set-up was so simple and user-friendly. I don't have to deal with complicated instructions; in fact, pressing buttons once the software was installed was all that I needed to do.

I can even produce up to a hundred copies in one batch in case I needed to, since the paper tray can hold up to 100 sheets of paper per load. Even the tray is conveniently structured as it can be folded up to maximize space as well as keep this portion safely tucked and free from dust.

Here's another feature which I consider as a real upgrade as far as technology is concerned. It's not just about printing photos with enhanced qualities where you can edit flaws in the quality of the picture. The improvement I like most is the convenience of sending the digital photos directly via e-mail without the need to upload them as attachment.

Printing of text and graphics is as good as can be expected from inkjet printers but it is impressive that what they say about laser-like quality in the way the documents were printed, is true. No gray-scale areas and everything well-defined and crisp. They are still the best ways to describe the output, albeit much used as descriptions.

As an all-in-one printer, it could scan almost any type of document using its flatbed scanner and with considerable ease. HP PSC 1315 All-In-One's capabilities include a utility called HP Digital Imaging Monitor which presents the user with 15 functions. I could email, fax, send it to my computer or place the image on the clipboard directly from the printer right after scanning. Now I consider this really cool since I don't have to print the document or the photo just to send it via fax. How's that for time and energy efficiency? I still have to explore the other functions and find out what's in store for me.

Even the copier was not to be left out as it has the reducing and enlarging capability. Would you believe it if I told you that an old 2x2 ID photo could be enlarged and produced on a 4x6 photo paper? HP PSC 1315 All-In-One has that ability and I even converted it into a T-shirt transfer. You could just imagine the thrill I get whenever I discover all the many possible high-tech capabilities this printer has.

I've always been a fan of HP or am I just lucky that I always get the machines that work out perfectly well? The best thing is, I got all these conveniences for only $75.
