The HP PhotoSmart 5510 e-All-in-One is generally well regarded by experts and consumers.

An expert HP PhotoSmart 5510 review by Pocket-lint commends the fast text printing, as does PC Mag, which also says it delivers generally good output quality, including realistic colors with nice saturation on photos.
