A Review of the HP A532 Compact Photo Printer

When you start looking at printers, things can be very confusing. There are literally hundreds of printers that you can choose from, and it can be hard to select which printer is the one that is right for you and your household. The HP A532 Compact Photo Printer is a printer that is marketed as one that is perfect for the average household, but does it deliver on what it promises?

The First Look

When you first look at the HP A532 Compact Photo Printer, you may get the impression that it looks as though it belongs in a room that was designed to be "retro". This is because the designers took a unique take on the printer and gave it a semi-futuristic look, with rounded edges and a blue and white color scheme. It is the type of printer that, as a permanent fixture, would fit in well in an office that had either a modern design to it or a futuristic design to it.

The Size

One of the biggest questions most people has about any printer that is designed to go along with you wherever you go is the size. Is it truly small enough to take with you anywhere you go? The HP A532 Compact Photo Printer definitely is. This printer is only a few inches wider than a 5 x 7 print, which means that while it won't fit in a small purse, it will easily fit into the corner of a suitcase so that you can take it along with you. And moving it from room to room in your house is easy, as you simply have to unplug it to take it with you where you want to go.

Taking It Along

How easy is this printer to take along with you? Extremely easy. In order to make it travel with you, you simply unplug it, roll the plug up (we usually have a number of twist ties for just this situation) and take it with you. Just be sure to save a bit of extra space in your luggage for spare printer ink cartridges. Thanks to the multiple memory card slots, there are no wires necessary for you to print photos out, making it even easier than ever before to travel wherever you're going without having to drag wires along with you. You can, however, use a USB cable to connect to the printer, should you choose to.

The Print Quality

So it's portable, but how does the HP A532 Compact Photo Printer print? It actually prints extremely well. It can print up to 1200 x 1200 dpi in black and white, and in color it can print up to 4800 x 1200 optimized dpi. It also has the classic HP auto red-eye removal, making the photos that you take instantly look better.


Overall this is one printer that is perfect for any household that is looking for a compact printer, or for people who tend to travel a great deal. For the price, this is one compact printer that can't be beat.
