Review: HP Photosmart Plus Edition Model B209A

 

A review of this excellent wireless all-in-one inkjet printer from HP.

Expert review by:

HP Photosmart Plus (B209a-m) inkjet multifunction

 

HP's Photosmart Plus (B209a-m) inkjet multifunction is affordably priced and looks good, but it lacks the print quality of competitors -- and even of ...

Prints quickly, touch-screen control panel, integrated Wi-Fi

Touch screen is too small, poor photo print quality, expensive consumables, no CD/DVD printing, can’t choose quality settings when scanning directly from the multifunction

We were largely disappointed with the HP Photosmart Plus' photo print quality and the inability to select quality settings when initiating a scan from the multifunction itself. It will produce decent quality documents, however.

HP Photosmart Plus B209 review

 

HP makes things easy from the get-go. The HP Photosmart Plus B209's installation wizard includes a library of animated instructions for setup and basic operation. The control panel features a 2.3in colour LCD, surrounded by touch-sensitive LED buttons...

The HP Photosmart Plus packs a lot of performance into a low-cost MFP package, with well-priced inks to boot. Other models in this price range can't boast quite as much.

HP Photosmart Plus B209a - Wireless All-in-One Printer

 

For less than £100, the HP Photosmart Plus packs in plenty of features.

Twin paper trays (standard, photo) ; Excellent print quality ; Good value

Slow start-up

For just under £90, including the revised VAT rate of 17.5 per cent, this is a very capable all-in-one. We like the twin paper trays and the machine’s convenience in powering the photo tray. We like the page cost, too and the positive response from the...

HP Photosmart Plus B209 review

 

HP's Photosmart Plus has a 2.4in touchscreen, PictBridge and a selection of memory card slots for direct printing.

A high-quality MFP that can print usable documents at 17ppm. It's marred only by flawed drivers and imperfect photo prints.

HP Photosmart Plus B209

 

The Photosmart Plus has a great touchscreen interface, but average printing quality at best.

Fast draft printing ; Responsive touchscreen controls

Average to poor print quality ; Printer body shakes a lot ; May encounter firewall issues

At the rough AU$200 price point there's fierce competition in the multi-function space, especially as last year's more expensive models drop down to that price point. We like the Photosmart Plus' simple touchscreen a lot, but it can't make up for what...

HP Photosmart Plus B209a 3-in-1 Printer

 

You wouldn't be too far off the mark to describe HP's latest Photosmart Plus as one of the sleekest 3-in-1 printers ever produced. But its quality does not stop with its good looks.

These problems aside, the fact of the matter is that HP nailed both looks and print quality with the Photosmart Plus. With a RRP of R1699 you do pay a bit of a premium though.

Good Stuff

 

This is our second B209a. Why? because it does what it says it will do very well and is easy to operate. As to ink usage, if you're gonna get good prints, you're gonna use ink! As to that I get 16 re-filled cartridges on E-Bay for $44 dollars and they...

Poor Ink Life but excellent form factor

 

Prints really well. Very noisy, and I was deaf before I started using it. is terrible. Have already changed cartridges 3 times for lower than normal usage. I like the scanner and form factor, however.
