HP ink cartridges could be needed by home printer users who have invested in a Photosmart Plus B210a, which may be a good option for those looking for an affordable, yet functional device.

The company promises photo outputs that are equal to those obtained from a lab and are smudge-resistant and long-lasting, while users can print directly from a camera or smartphone without connecting to a PC.

Examining the machine for Trusted Reviews, Simon Williams said the printer is a "great little home all-in-one" that offers features that would normally only be expected on a more expensive option.

He described the colour images it produces as "intense and arresting" and noted there is plenty of detail, while its handling of darker shades is also excellent.

Individuals concerned about the environmental impact of their computing activities may also be pleased to learn the machine, like many in the HP range, is Energy Star certified, which identifies it as especially eco-friendly.
