HP Photosmart Premium printer has it all (print, fax, scan, copy, web, wireless, wi-fi, bluetooth, image quality, nice LCD)

HP Photosmart Premium printer is an awesome all-in-one printer (print, fax, scan, copy). It will also let you print directly from the web through your existing internet connection (selected sites/app with the touchsmart web app) or the memory card using the various memory card slots available. This printer also has wireless, wi-fi, and bluetooth connection capability. It has a nice LCD touchscreen that is useful for navigating all the functions, editing photos and operating the touchweb. It's basically almost like a computer by itself. Having said all those good features (and the advance technology of the touchsmart web), I think this printer strongest feature is still the print quality which is a good thing.

Here are some things (that it currently doesn't have) that will make this printer even better. First, include paper feeder for scanning, copying and faxing so we don't have to do it one page/side at a time (manually). Secondly, greatly expand the web sites/apps that are compatible with this printer (the touchsmart web), or just add a web browser and let people browse (and print) freely using the nice 4.33 inch LCD (or save document/image to the memory card). Maybe HP will add these features in the future.

Pros:
1. Great printing/image quality, and fast printing as well.
2. Do it all with this printer (print, fax, scan, copy, web)
3. Web printing without a PC (USA Today, Weather, Maps, Photos, Coupons, Movie tickets etc).
4. Compatible pretty much with all kinds of memory cards out there (memory slot)
5. Can still connect with USB or ethernet if you don't have/want to use the wireless capability
6. Print photo easily from iPhone, iPod Touch, and Bluetooth enabled device
7. Sleep mode available (useful if using this machine to receive/stand-by for fax or remote printing)
8. Edit photos without a PC
9. Printing 2 sides (safe paper/trees)
10. Great quality for printing 8 X 10 color photo

Cons:
1. No paper feeder for scanning and sending fax (do it one page at a time)
2. Limited Touchsmart Web functionality (maybe HP will expand it to more/all websites in the next version to make it even more usable)
3. Can't scan document or photos and save/process it directly to the memory card without your PC
4. Though this printer is not heavy, it's a bit big (bulky), so make sure you understand the dimension of this printer before you buy
