Summary: The HP C309A All-in-One Printer is simply the best all-around printer I have ever used for home use. I print onto a lot of printable CD/DVD's and this printer works great for that task. I use DISKETCH CD LABEL NCH SOFTWARE to build the CD info, then load the printable CD into the printer tray, follow the printer instructions in the little LCD window, then when asked to, send the computer info to the printer, being certain to first, go to preferences and choose the CD...
Summary: This is my second HP C309a printer. The first was bought new years ago, and it now refuses to print. It's display frequently displays some kind of error code. Fortunately, the second printer is working fine. It's a great CD/DVD printer for the price.
Summary: My mother gave me one of these for Christmas last year. I doubt very much that it will survive dumpsteriation before this Christmas. The printer usually doesn't recognize ink cartridges, even brand new ones. I called HP about this problem, and they gave me instructions on cleaning the tiny contact heads on the carriage, and gold contact points on cartridges, to assure electrical continuity.
Summary: I really like this printer. I did get the continuous ink, but had a problem with it. The black leaked out everywhere. After I cleaned it up, I put regular cartridges in and it worked great. Disappointed the continuous ink did not work with it since it was sold with it.
