HP Photosmart Premium Review

Yes, this is a printer. It happens to be connected to my network wirelessly. It also boasts bluetooth features and a touch screen! This HP Photosmart Premium allows me to print, copy, fax and scan. It also allows me to connect to parts of the Internet, such as coupons, Google Maps and more!

I can even print wirelessly using the HP iPrint application on my iPhone. It happens to be a free App, even! Without connecting my phone to the network, the App detected the printer on my network and sent the photo to it! How easy was that?!

The coupons feature is pretty cool, even if I do prefer my own coupons. These are ones that you can sort by category, and print out to use in your local store. Enter your zip code, and receive coupons to local stores! Who doesn’t love to save money?!

I can also print a map out for myself, so that I don’t end up lost anymore. I can target whatever location I want using Google Maps, and print out what I need. If you are subscribed to my Twitter, you know that my GPS system called me an idiot recently when I kept missing my turn. By printing out a map, that will hopefully never happen again!

I didn’t have to connect this printer to any computer in order to download updates or anything. This thing is really simple to use. If I wanted to, I could add or change the included widgets. This printer has just about every feature you could want, and then some! I love the fact that it’s connected to my entire network!

I can use this machine to scan a document into any of the computers sitting in my network, without having to plug something in. I can also copy and print wirelessly. I can put this thing anywhere within my wireless access range, and be able to get to it from any computer. There are media slots built into the printer, as well, to accept your memory cards. There are several auto-adjustments build right in, such as red-eye reduction.

One of the coolest things is a setting that will let you print out pre-defined templates! Let’s say you’re a musician. You can press a button and print out paper that allows you to start writing down your next concerto. You can print out lined paper, just like you would use in school! And yes, you can choose between child rule, wide rule or college rule paper!

Setup was a breeze, as was using the machine. Some people may feel daunted at the thought of connecting a wireless printer to their network. I promise you, it’s not hard! This machine definitely passes the Pirillo test with flying colors. I absolutely love the fact that the only cable running to it is the power cable. That truly is it.

Once again, HP delivers exactly what we need, with a machine that will set the bar for others to come.
