Introduced this summer along with three other new Photosmart inkjets, the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One builds upon the previous generation Photosmart Premium by adding a larger 4.3 inch TouchSmart Panel, ePrint technology, and web connected applications.
I thought the original HP Photosmart Premium was a great product, so I am interested to see how the improvements to the design along with the addition of the ePrint technology might affect the new Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One.
Today, we’ll be taking a hands-on first look of the HP Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One including plenty of product shots as well as detailed build, design and pricing information. Not enough information to make a purchasing decision? Check back soon for our full review!

BUILD AND DESIGN
If you read our HP Photosmart Premium review earlier this year, then the new second generation Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One should look fairly familiar. The two printers have nearly identical designs with one exception: the Premium e-All-in-One has a 4.3 inch touch screen that is centered as opposed to the first generation Photosmart Premium’s 3.45 inch touch screen that was slightly left of center.
So it follows that the dimensions and weight for the Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One are also similar to its predecessor’s at approximately 18 x 18 x 8 inches and 16.9 lbs.
The 48-bit flatbed scanner features an automatic paper sensor so the machine will know if there is a document or photo on scanner. The maximum optical scan resolution is 1200 dpi with a maximum scan size of 8.5 x 11.7 inches.
Pull open the middle of unit to access the print head and ink cartridges. The Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One uses five individual ink cartridges: HP 564 Black, HP 564 Cyan, HP 564 Magenta, HP 564 Yellow and HP 564 Photo Black. For users with a heavy printing flow, HP does offer the HP 564XL high capacity cartridges.
Like the first gen Photosmart Premium, the Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One also has a 125-sheet paper tray and 20-sheet photo tray and can accommodate media ranging from 3 x 5 inches to 8.5 x 14 inches.
To the left of the paper trays, you’ll find the built-in memory card reader. The Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One is compatible with Memory Stick Duo, SD and MultiMediaCard.
The connectivity ports are found on the back of the device along with a removable panel that allows users access to the paper path. The Photosmart Premium e-All-in-One offers wireless and USB 2.0 connectivity.
