The all-in-one HP Photosmart premium combines copier, scanner, fax machine and inkjet printer to $ 270 workhorse. The base of this printer has an interactive control panel for direct editing, wireless networked printing and an interactive auto-document feeder allowing the printer to independently function with the digital camera.
Features and Design:
The all-in-one Photosmart Premium Fax appears as if it has been cut from a single plastic block. Its top portion features the built-in auto document feeder allowing you to load 50 sheets of paper of different sizes to be copied or scanned to memory so that it could be then transferred back to the computer.
The control panel of the system sits at fixed angles beneath the scanner allowing you to look at the controls. The comprehensive panel that the printer has features almost everything that you require to operate independently from the system.
You can print directly off the USB key, CF, XD, SD or MS using the onboard card reader. Additionally, the USB port is also PictBridge compatible for simple one–touch printing with compatible digital cameras. Finally, the two color LEDs that are placed on the far right portion of the panel, display a green color to indicate Bluetooth and wireless 802.11 connectivity.
Except Epson Artisan 800, HP finishes with a page ahead of its competition, beating Canon MX700 and Kodak EP5. It continues to remain as one of the fastest inkjets, pumping three photos per minute.
The price range of this all inclusive printer varies from $ 299 to $ 197.
