Summary: This machine prints very well, when it prints. I have had numerous and continued problems with the wireless feature. I have lost track of how many times I've reloaded printer software on my Dell laptop in attempt to stabilize HP C309 wireless print function. One day it seems to work fine, and the next is "what now?". I am not alone. Check the internet for user comments on this printer. I finally turned off most of the software features and have some success.
Summary: Painless wifi set-up. As with all HP Photosmart printers the quality of your prints is excellent. Only drawback is you must feed your photo print stock from the main tray. Was hoping to use the photo tray but still only for small prints. The printer has a ability to recognize HP Photo paper. Prints turn out sharper, paper is a little more. Since I did not buy the printer to run commercial print shop it is fine for my needs.
Summary: This printer does a great job. I t's the typical size, easy to set up and has nice color. Though, the cartridges that came with it run out quickly (about 25 4x6 photos and probably a month of intermittant e-mail printing)but I've heard that the original cartridges with printers don't last as long due to priming of the ink heads. Not sure how true it is, but we'll see how long the next set of cartridges last.
Summary: THIS IS MY SECOND PRINTER OF THE SAME EXACT MODEL. THE OTHER WORKED EXCELLENTLY FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS. THE MINIMUM SERVICE CHARGE TO GET IT LOOKED AT IS ONLY FIVE DOLLARS LESS THAN THE PRICE OF THIS NEW ONE. THIS WAS A FANTASTIC PRICE FOR AN EXCELLENT DEVICE. I'D BUY A COUPLE AS SPARES IF AVAILABLE AT THIS PRICE.
Summary: Very nice printer. Great photos. Fast on photo's or print. Down side is the ink. Quite the ink guzzler. I do not like the cartridges. If purchased from someone other than HP machine may or may not work. If you press the sides ink will spill out. Never got the chance to scan. Replaced the printer.
