HP A536 Compact Photo Printer Review

All things considered, the HP A536 is a fairly average printer with not-so-average printing options.

$125.50 at Amazon


With lackluster performance, and limited functionality, the HP A536 falls firmly into the "boringly average" category. If you simply want to make quick prints with a compact it's not the worst you could do, but there are better compact printers out there for the price.
