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.

Canon Pixma iP2702 Comparison

Performance

The Canon Pixma iP2702 had superior color accuracy, but the HP Deskjet 1000 produced deeper and darker blacks, which can give images more impact. We did find that the Canon did a little better at reproducing fine details, though: images printed with this device had a better level of detail, especially in shadows and darker areas of the image.

Inks & Media

Both printers use two ink cartridges: one black and one color cartridge containing three inks (cyan, magenta and yellow). This means that when one of the colors runs out, you have to replace the entire cartridge, even if there is still some of the other colors left.

In Use#####

Both printers are simple, cheap devices that get the computer to do the hard work. There is only a single button on both, with every other control being set through the printer driver. And neither printer driver gives you that much control, although the Canon driver at least allows for some color tweaking, which the HP one does not.
