HP Photosmart Premium C309g

 

HP joins the touchscreen LCD club with this new inkjet all-in-one.

The rest of the software installation provides the usual basic file management and OCR, as well as useful applets like HP Smart Web Printing. There's driver support on the supplied CD for Windows from XP onwards and OS X from version 10.4.

HP Photosmart Premium C309g

 

There's a definite trend among higher-end inkjet all-in-one makers to build touchscreens into their machines - we recently looked at one on Lexmark's Interact S605. The similarly priced Photosmart Premium C309g is a well-styled, all-black device, with...

The Photosmart Premium C309g is an extremely easy-to-use machine and produces excellent photo images. There are some shortfalls, though, particularly in the duplex speed, and there's a question mark over page yields if the low ink warnings we saw are...

HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m inkjet multifunction

 

HP has employed Touchsmart technology in this inkjet multifunction printer

Produces great photos, Touchsmart control panel is responsive, Snapfish by HP access, automatic duplexing

Can't print document files directly from USB drives and memory cards, inconsistent Wi-Fi access, no CD/DVD printing, no scan settings on control panel, expensive consumables

The HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m is great for printing photos, both from memory cards and HP's Snapfish service. However, it lacks several features and we had some issues when connecting to a wireless network.

HP Photosmart Premium All-in-One C309g

 

The Photosmart Premium is a nifty little multifunction with the added novelty of a touchscreen. It does a great job of plain text, but it's a pity about its colour prints.

Excellent black-and-white text quality ; Automatic duplexer ; Quick print speeds ; Wireless, Bluetooth and Ethernet connectivity ; Touchscreen interface

Only passable photo quality ; No fax functionality

Unless you're the type of person to use your multifunction printer as a stand-alone unit, without tethering it to a computer, you won't find much use for the touchscreen interface, even though it's intuitive and very well designed. However, if you want...

HP Photosmart Premium C309g All-in-One Printer Review

 

Review of the HP Photosmart Premium C309g, and all-in-one ink jet printer featuring wireless networking, including Bluetooth.

Very good touchscreen ; Good interface ; Good quality text printing ; Impressive output speed ; Excellent design ; Good handling of envelopes ; Useful Quick Forms ; Dual input trays

Time-consuming setup ; Extra black cartridge cannot be used for text ; Lack of hinged scanner cover ; Wired setup instructions could be clearer ; Photo printing could be better ; No “Cancel” button

HP Photosmart Premium All-in-One C309g

 

Onwed C309g now for 6 months in multi-PC environment. Technically it still works, but it will go out from our home soon. Reasons for this is that I am fed up with reinstalling the software ('Device installation uncomplete', while it worked yesterday),...

When it works, the print quality is good

The most unreliable piece of junk I have ever seen
