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...

We dig this printer’s touchscreen and its tie-in to some very cool web applications...

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.

HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web

 

Although HP and Lexmark both released touch-screen printers at the same time, we have to credit HP for being the first to bring one to the consumer space, with the Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web. The printer connects directly to the Web through a...

Printer ships in recyclable bags; new design reflects modern aesthetic; comprehensive driver features; separate photo and paper trays automatically pick the right size for the job.

Onscreen apps take a long time to access and feel gimmicky; lacks autodocument feeder; slow response from touch screen; applications have a tendency to freeze up; small scanner bed.

Aside from the never-ending name, the HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-in-One Printer looks good and prints high-quality photos at competitive speeds. We also appreciate the effort put into the downloadable applications for the interactive...

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

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....

"Worked out of the box!"

 

I haven't tried any of the apps yet, as I've had this set up for about an hour now. I will need to come back and update the review. I purcahsed this printer at Office Depot for $160. I got it home, unpacked it and plugged it in. It takes you through a...

Easy setup with wireless N router, prints nice quality photos.

Seems a bit slow gearing up to print, touch screen is not very sensitive.
