HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One (C310a) review

 

The HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One C310a is a pared-down version of the HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web with similar features like a dual-access paper tray and a bright 4.3-inch touch-screen control panel. The C310a also provides ePrint e-mail...

The HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One C310a is a solid performer with competitive output and print quality, and HP sweetens the deal with ePrint wireless access and a suite of onscreen shortcut apps.

The C310a omits all hard-button controls in favor of a clumsy touch screen marred by a maddening delay and system hang-ups.

Despite its admirable printing performance, the touch-screen-equipped HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One C310a suffers from a confusing user interface and software crashes, so we recommend spending your $150 elsewhere.

HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One ( C310a)

 

Design The C310a is a drastic departure from the older HP printers, with new streamlined flair and rounded edges all around the printer. The smooth lines and black finish exude executive appeal and complement the 4.33-inch touch screen set in the...

HP PhotoSmart Premium e-All-in-One

 

The HP PhotoSmart Premium e-All-in-One has a beautiful 4.3-inch touch screen for accessing Web apps and for photo preview.

Beautiful touch-screen interface. HP Web apps and ePrint. Easy setup. Automatic duplexer. Fast business app printing.

Photo quality a bit below par. No slot for USB key and limited memory-card compatibility.

HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One

 

A glance at the HP PhotoSmart Premium e-All-in-One ($199.99 direct) reveals it as the latest HP MFP geared for Web app printing. Its centerpiece is the gorgeous 4.3-inch TouchSmart screen that fills the tilt-up front panel. From it, you can control...

Review: HP Photosmart Premium C310a MFP

 

If you're looking for a speedy multifunction inkjet with wireless capabilities, the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One is worth a look. Its text and photo printing quality are impressive, and its AirPrint support, touchscreen menus and printing apps...

Setting up the printer is easy: just plug it in and follow the instructions on the handy TouchSmart control screen to connect to your computer via USB 2.0 or 802.11b/g/n. The touchscreen itself could be a bit more responsive; I sometimes had to push...

HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One review

 

So it follows that the dimensions and weight for the Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One are also similar to its predecessor's at approximately 18 x 18 x 8 inches and 16.9 lbs

Excellent print quality ; ePrint technology/web apps ; Easy Wi-Fi setup

Inflated print speeds ; No USB/Pictbridge port

The biggest issues for me were that HP left off the PictBridge/USB port on the Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One and that I had some problems with responsiveness when navigating the TouchSmart panel. But these are both minor issues in the grand scheme of...

HP Photosmart C310A

 

If you want to enjoy some of the finest photos on the market with high- quality appearance and the ability to retain their attractiveness for years to come, the HP Photosmart C310A is definitely the printer for you.

The HP Photosmart C310A produces excellent photos

This printer lacks portability

You can print wirelessly, share photos with multiple printers and get lab-quality results with this printer.

HP Photosmart Premium C310a

 

Overall, the HP Photosmart Premium C310a is an excellent printer that gives nice results for prints, copies and scans. Accessing the web to print from photo-sharing websites is a nice feature, and the lack of a built-in fax probably isn't a big deal to...

It's a fast printer that produces good prints and has the option to print from the web without a computer

It lacks a built-in fax, its printing speed scores don’t reflect new standards and it is pricey

A pricey all-in-one printer that is good at its job, but where’s the fax?

HP Photosmart C310a - Slightly Expensive for an MFP - Tech2

 

The C310a's prints most kind of documents well, but it misses support for more memory slots.
