Hewlett-Packard Australia Photosmart D7360
  • Expert Rating

    3.50 / 5

Pros

  • Easy to use touch-screen, Intuitive photo printing

Cons

  • Plain paper printing is not its strong point, Photo prints lacked some detail and had problematic colours

Bottom Line

Priced at $299, the D7360 is exceptionally easy to use and has the best software bundle in the business. But, its image quality is merely good, and plain-paper printing is clearly not its strong point.

Would you buy this?

With a simple tap of the touch-screen on HP's Photosmart D7360, you can print colour photos in a snap. Insert your camera's media card in one of its reader's four slots, and the on-screen wizard will walk you through the printing steps.

The wizard lets you browse your images on the 3.4in colour screen, perform simple editing operations, select which pictures to print, and choose the paper size. It also helps you print images stored on a USB device connected to the direct-print port.

The D7360's handy touch-screen menus also make setting up and maintaining the printer easy. You can even view animated demos of maintenance tasks, such as loading paper and cartridges, and clearing paper jams. The main paper tray holds up to 100 sheets of A4-size paper, and a second tray holds 4x6in snapshot paper. Options include a duplexer, for double-sided printing, as well as a Bluetooth adapter for printing from camera phones and PDAs.

When you connect the D7360 to your PC and touch 'Save' on the screen, the bundled software launches and helps transfer your images to the computer. The printer comes with the full version of HP's Photosmart Premier, a convenient package that lets you organise photos into albums, edit them, print them, and share them through HP's Snapfish Web site.

In our tests, a shipping D7360 printed 5x7in photos at a moderately brisk 1.1 pages per minute (ppm). Most users will like its photo quality, but we've seen better. On photo paper, the darkest areas lacked some detail and exhibited a bluish tint, while skin tones looked too bronzed. Black-and-white prints had very smooth tonal gradations, though. On plain paper, text and line art were slate grey instead of black, and colour photos lacked brightness and shadow detail.

The printer comes with six individually replaceable ink cartridges that are separate from the printhead.

Priced at $299, the D7360 is exceptionally easy to use and has the best software bundle in the business. But, its image quality is merely good, and plain-paper printing is clearly not its strong point.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
