The HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One is a multifunction printer for light-duty home-office use, which means that besides printing documents, it is also capable of scanning and copying them, and as the name suggests, it is also intended for printing photos with good quality. Replacing the higher-priced HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart Web All-in-One printer, the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One comes with no fax and Ethernet capability in order to reduce the price. The good news is that the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One also offers some new stand-out features such as a large and bright 4.3-inch tilt-up touch-screen LCD panel and the company’s new ePrint technology. HP’s ePrint technology allows you to access the company’s web-connected applications and print your documents remotely by sending an email to your printer’s dedicated email address, which is provided by HP on the setup.
The HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One is a good-looking printer with glossy-black surface finish. Measuring 7.8 x 17.7 x 17.9 inches and weighing 16.9 pounds, the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One shares almost the same design, dimensions, and weight with its predecessor, but with one exception, the gorgeous 4.3-inch touch-screen LCD that fills its tilt-up front panel. This new touch-screen LCD is larger than its predecessor’s and it is located on the center, opposed to its predecessor’s touch-screen LCD that was located slightly to the left.
The HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One is equipped with five individual ink cartridges, which are hidden in the middle of the unit. It comes with a 125-sheet input tray plus a 20-sheet photo tray, and an automatic duplexer for printing on both sides of a sheet of paper. To the left of the input trays you will find two built-in memory card slots which are compatible with SD cards, Multi Media Cards, and Memory Stick Duos. A 48-bit flatbed scanner with an automatic document/photo sensor can be found on the top side of the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One, while the connectivity ports are located on its back side. As mentioned before, the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One doesn’t come with Ethernet; however, it does offer wireless and USB 2.0 connectivity.
