Photosmart Premium FAX ALL-IN-ONE


The name of this color inkjet multifunction printer--HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One--clearly signals its ambition and its price ($300 as of May 5, 2009). If you don't need all of the extras included here, consider opting for its less expensive...

Prints on specially coated CD/DVD media Produces photos quickly

Very expensive to purchase Copy speeds are sluggish

Ink costs are basically average across the board. The machine ships with a 250-page black cartridge for $12 (4.8 cents per page), and 300-page cyan, magenta, and yellow cartridges for $10 each (3.3 cents per color per page). A fifth color, photo black,...

Prints on specially coated CD/DVD media ; Produces photos quickly

Very expensive to purchase ; Copy speeds are sluggish

Well equipped for both photography and light office use, this MFP is capable--but very expensive.

HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One


In addition to fast and notably high-quality photo output, the printer's photocentric features include the ability to print directly from PictBridge cameras, memory cards, and USB keys, as well as preview photos before printing on its 2.4-inch color...

High-quality graphic and photo output. Prints on optical discs. Fast speed for photos

Although text quality is good enough for most purposes, it's a touch below par. Limited paper capacity

Aimed at both the home and home office, the HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One produces sharp-looking graphics and photos and offers a host of office-centric features.

HP Photosmart Premium review


Don't let that fool you though; at $199.99, the Photosmart Premium offers HP's 3.45 inch touch screen surrounded by the TouchSmart control panel, standard print speeds up to 12 ppm, built-in duplexing, HP Auto Sense, a monthly duty cycle up to 2500...

Decent print speeds for an inkjet ; Fun, interactive touch screen ; Auto sense photo tray

Ink can be expensive

HP also offers high capacity ink cartridges; a set of 564XL cartridges will set a user back $106.97 ($34.99 for the HP 564XL Black, $17.99 for each HP 564XL color and photo black ink cartridges). However, HP advertises that the high capacity black...

HP Photosmart Premium Fax


This easy-to-use, photo-centric all-in-one is capable of producing high-quality prints, but it has some quirks and limitations.

Handsome and well-built; versatile connectivity; automatic duplexing; automatic document feeder

Below-average performance; tiny LCD; poor receiver-tray design; direct prints look markedly inferior to prints from PC

The Photosmart Premium is like an exotic sports car that runs beautifully most of the time but occasionally slips out of gear when climbing hills

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....
