HP Deskjet 1000 Inkjet Printer Review
The HP Deskjet 1000 costs just $30, which gets you a printer that is adequate for basic tasks, but not much more.
HP Photosmart D7560 Comparison
These two printers provide an interesting contrast. Neither is a great performer in our tests of color accuracy, but the D7560 is slightly better than the Deskjet 1000. The cheaper Deskjet 1000 has deeper blacks, but this comes at the cost of detail in the printed images: the D7560 did a much better job of rendering the fine details that make an image come alive.
Inks & Media
These two printers take quite a different approach to inks. The Deskjet 1000 only has a single color cartridge, while the D7560 uses separate cartridges for cyan, magenta and yellow, as well as offering a separate black for photo use. The document black ink cartridge is much bigger than the photo ones, so you can get more documents out of a cartridge and are less likely to run out part way through a photo print. The D7560 can also handle larger papers (up to 8.5 by 14 inches) and inkjet printable DVD media.
The D7560 is the more flexible printer by a long stretch, offering both memory card slots and a small screen that allow it to both print and edit images from a memory card or connected camera. As a way to produce photo prints quickly and easily, this can't be beaten: it is much quicker than loading images into a computer, editing them and then printing them out.
