HP Smart Tank 515 printer: the all-in-one printer for your home needs

This evaluator was sent on an HP Smart Tank 515 test unit; the computing device found a significant amount of use for about a fortnight.

Did you know that after cell phones, laptops and printers are the most sought after devices by Indian households? Well, that’s not surprising given that most of us are still confined to our homes. Home users have a strong preference for printers that are easy to use, affordable, deliver high speed printing, and can facilitate mobile printing.

The new HP Smart Tank 515 is a high capacity, high quality and affordable all-in-one printer. As Sunish Raghavan, Senior Manager, Printing Systems, HP India, points out: “The idea of ​​working and learning from home, which at one point seemed temporary, has for many of us become more permanent. At HP, we push the boundaries of innovation to meet the hybrid learning and work environment. With the new HP Smart Tank, we’re making the printing process more intuitive, efficient and productive for home users. HP Smart Tank, with the latest sensor-based Ink Tank technology, will reinvent the printing experience for consumers in India.

This evaluator was sent on an HP Smart Tank 515 test unit; the computing device found a significant amount of use for about a fortnight. With its ability to print, scan, or copy (this too wirelessly with your laptop or mobile device), I think this HP creation is a good choice for families and small offices. It’s a capable machine with an easy setup process and an attractive set of features. It sells for Rs 14,499, let us check out its main features and how it works overall.

HP Smart Tank 515 comes with ink supplies in the box, so you need to refill the tank as well as the printhead that needs to be installed. The best part is that it comes with a lot of ink, so periodically rushing to the store to buy ink can be removed, at least the frequency of visits can be drastically reduced. The printer can produce a minimum of 6,000 pages (black) / 8,000 pages (color) with a 38% increase in print speed.

HP Smart Tank 515 provides an enhanced mobile experience and connectivity through dual-band Wi-Fi and the HP Smart mobile printing app and Bluetooth LE. It has the Wi-Fi Direct capability which allows the mobile phone to connect to the printer without the need of an Internet network.

Based on its time with us, I would like to highlight some of the strengths of the HP Smart Tank 515. Firstly, it guarantees reliable and high speed printing. This means you can print up to 11 ppm (black) and 5 ppm (color). Second, an integrated tank design with automatic ink sensor alerts the user before ink runs out. This is a very thoughtful feature in order to avoid unplanned visits to the nearby store. Third, it allows you to print and scan from your iOS and Android mobile devices.

With the HP Smart app, mobile scanning and printing is easy and seamless. Fourth, being an HP product, good print quality is a given. You can count on crisp, dark text and vibrant graphics for all prints and create professional, borderless brochures and photos. Not to mention, this printer is ideal for high volume printing; you can print 6000 black pages or 8000 color pages.

Key takeaways: HP Smart Tank 515 is rugged equipment that can withstand moderate rough handling. Print, scan and copy jobs here are a snap. The printer is ideal for small offices or home environments that require a decent amount of high volume printing at an affordable cost. Highly recommended for the home bound lot.

Estimated public price: Rs 14,499
