A basic HP multifunction printer for home users


If you're looking for a small and inexpensive multifunction printer for everyday printing needs (think recipes, maps, school reports and Web pages), the HP Photosmart B109a is worthy of consideration. It's not a good photo printer though, so don't...

Easy to set up and use, good text quality, option for a higher capacity black cartridge

Poor photo quality, scan lid doesn't have a hinge that raises, no advanced options in scan driver

HP Photosmart Wireless All-in-One B109


We take a look at HP's new sub-£100 all-in-one printer.

The four separate ink cartridges, with designs very similar to those used in Canon PIXMA machines, snap into the semi-permanent head and after you've printed an alignment page and re-scanned it, you're ready to go.

HP Photosmart B109a review

Bastorial Install


Likes unfettered internet access during install which includes much scum ware. Even a major retailer sold me incorrect ink. Chip cartridges are for the benefit of HP only. This item was sold at a dumping price of less than half normal retail and I...

Photo prints well, convenient copy print and SD print.

Extremely unstable wireless connection even with locked IP. Forgets settings and likes the occasional restart to drink ink.

Great home printer.


Switched to HP from another brand and am extremely happy with its functionality. It is also a very efficient and nice looking machine.

Great for photos and has a separate tray for photo paper. Very user friendly. Touch screen.

Only comes in piano black which shows dust.
