Excerpt: (1 items) The HP Photosmart e-All-in-One could be any low-end color inkjet multifunction printer saddled with limited features and pricey inks. Its solid performance and its access to a range of Web-based printing apps make it an acceptable choice for home users, however. Its performance was very good overall. At default settings on plain paper, text pages printed at a middling 5.3 pages per minute on both the Mac and PC.
Pros: Very good print, scan, and copy quality
Cons: Skimpy paper handling, Pricey inks, Manual duplexing works only on the PC
Conclusion: The HP Photosmart e-All-in-One is a cool printer; that's an unusual thing to write because printers are pretty boring(I'm allowed to say that considering I'm the editor of a printer review website). Users can take advantage of the latest technology seen on mobile phones and computers through their printer. Print from any location and from any device with email access without downloading drivers.
Pros: Good print quality, Web-connected (ePrint e-mail, apps), Low energy consumption
Cons: Ink refills, Print speeds slower than advertised
Summary: You get some really special features for with the Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One's high price. Its older cousin, the HP Photosmart C8180, provides an interesting variation of its own: it can write to CD/DVD media and etch labels onto LightScribe-compatible discs.
Excerpt: HP announced the industry first HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One (AIO) printer the first week of March along with several other new printers but even then the Photosmart Premium stood out. From its stylish design , multifunction performance, to the standard features not found on other inkjets; the Photosmart Premium clearly took the prize.
Pros: Excellent text and photo quality, Extremely useful features, Intuitive control panel and menus, Interesting design
Cons: Goes through regular capacity ink quickly, Draft print speeds slower than advertised
Excerpt: One of the driving factors in this type of device is the ability to handle the odd scanning job that you might have. Both devices can turn out a quick scan of photos or documents, and work as a photocopy machine with multiple copies.
