HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web Review

 

HP already builds awesome all-in-one PCs featuring integrated touchscreens and custom programs designed to take advantage of that user interface. Now, the company is bringing that same expertise to its printer business with the Photosmart Premium...

HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web

 

HP's Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-in-One Printer is a color inkjet multifunction printer with one truly new feature: the ability to access Web-based applications for viewing and printing items on the machine. It's a cool concept, but it's not...

Web applications show potential ; Automatic duplexer is standard

Steep purchase price ; Web and touchscreen features have a few hiccups

The idea of accessing Web apps from your printer is intriguing, but the initial execution on this unit shows that there's still some work to be done.

HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-in-One Printer

 

The HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-In-One Printer ($399.99 direct) is one of the more interesting MFPs to come down the pike in a long time, but not because of its role as a computer printer. The interesting part is that it's a standalone Web...

World's first standalone home Web printer kiosk. Color LCD touch screen for all controls. High-quality photos

Low paper capacity. Web features won't work if connected only to a PC by a USB connection

The HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-In-One Printer is the first Web kiosk printer, which is the best, if not only, reason to consider getting it.

Review: HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web MFP

 

This multifunction device has one truly new feature: the ability to access Web-based applications for viewing and printing items on the machine.

As a traditional MFP, the TouchSmart performed competently in our tests. Using default settings, it printed plain text and graphics at better-than-average speeds of 8 pages per minute and 3.7 ppm, respectively. (HP’s specs of 33 ppm for text and 32 ppm...

Review Of HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web Printer

 

The Hp applications can be accessed through the touchscreen. Here you can download printable content like children's coloring pages, games etc. You can also print news, maps and tickets. All said and done, the question of viability again pops up. And...

The printer looks good to compliment its breakthrough technology in terms of the touch screen. The printer is shipped in recyclable bags. There are separate photo and paper trays, and the printer will automatically detect and pick up the right kind of...

Accessing the onscreen applications is a little tedious and takes a long time to access and navigate. The need for the touchscreen is still not justified. Working on a small screen, with limited navigability seems the last choice when you would have...

Hp has forayed onto new grounds with the new Photosmart Premium Touchsmart Web. While we applaud the effort, it also leaves many of us scratching our heads, wondering about the practicality of the application of touchscreen in printers. While Hp has...

HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web

 

Color images, not speed or text prints, are the forte of this Web-enabled all-in-one printer for home users.

Web-enabled touch screen; easy setup/operation; versatile connectivity

Text quality is only fair to good; paper handling could be better; cannot directly read Web pages; expensive

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Color photograph printed in amazing detail with surprising speed. Not a printer expert, but, this printer has surely impressed me.

Instructions easy to follow; setup was as easy as anyone could expect; my D-link 4500 router recognized it immediately or vice versa ... not sure which but I printed a photograph from my laptop located two rooms away on the first attempt.Superior...

owned it only two days; I have no complaints

HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web

 

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
