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

Multifunctional devices have progressed by leaps and bounds in the past few years. Today, they offer a lot more apart from standard features such as printing, scanning, copying, direct printing and so on. More advanced models have support for wireless...

The HP Photosmart Premium C309g is an all-round multifunctional device. It offers a lavish feature set and is an ace performer. Aside from a few niggles, such as the absence of a CF card reader and its inability to print text documents from USB flash...

HP Photosmart Premium C309g-m inkjet multifunction


HP's Photosmart Premium C309g-m offers many of the features you would expect from an inkjet multifunction in this price range, like Wi-Fi, advanced ph...

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 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 review


Good all-round performance and a great touchscreen make the HP Photosmart Premium C309g an appealing purchase for both home and small-office users. Its support for wireless networking is excellent and it's easy to set up, while the Windows software...

Good touch-sensitive screen ; Excellent driver bundle

Noisy ; Expensive

The C309g proved no less proficient with photos. There are five inks under the hood -- the standard cyan, magenta, yellow and black, and an extra, photo-strength black for more subtle shading. Together, these deliver super-sharp results, with faithful...

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


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...

Printer easy to setup but takes a while noisy printing


Only had it less than a month. Everything seems to work as advertised so far. Unless issues surface, I am a satisfied customer so far. This printer has recently been discounted (November 2010). At $99.00 or less, it is a good value.

easy, straightforward setup particularly with Windows 7 computers

it is nosiy; after the printing of pages stops, it goes through a process like it's resetting itself that is very nosiy

HP (Hewlett-Packard) Photosmart Premium C309G Multifunction Printer


I bought the printer during black friday deal from Staples. It took me less than 15 min to set up and print the first page. WiFi connectivity works very well. Not sure about longevity of ink cartridges.

Easy Setup using wireless, excellent printing quality, quick printing, very low noise, touchscreen, bluetooth

Takes several tries to connect from some laptops
