Introduction

Printers. It's not enough that we ask them to do it all nowadays; print, scan, copy, fax, we even demand that they network through wired and wireless means and even accept flash memory cards directly. Top It off, they have to look good while doing all of the above too.

The HP Photosmart Premium C309 certainly does almost all that, with a large, beautiful screen, touch-sensitive buttons that light up and disappear, and a smooth, wavy-patterned cover. But is it all look and no substance, or does it hold its printing might against its closest competitors? HardwareZone investigates and gives the final verdict on the following page.
