Most of the bargain multifunction printers I see are pretty bare-bones. Not today.
TigerDirect has the refurbished HP Photosmart Premium C309G for $79.99, plus around $10 for shipping. What puts the "Premium" in this model? It starts with the screen.
The C309G sports a 3.5-inch color touch screen, which not only previews any photos you want to print, but also serves as the all-in-one's interface. That's just plain awesome, especially when you compare it to the awkward, button-powered menus on my non-touch screen AIO.
Other amenities include Bluetooth and 802.11n Wi-Fi, the latter … Read more
Epson debuted its NX625 all-in-one printer Wednesday just in time for the back-to-school shopping season. The multifunction printer, scanner, and copier features built-in 802.11n wireless connectivity, mobile printing by way of Epson's iPrint app, a 2.5-inch color LCD screen, and a memory card reader so you don't have to deal with the hassle of a USB cord to print snapshot photos. We'll have more details in the full review coming soon, but the NX625 is shipping now for $150.
Kodak's new ESP 9250 all-in-one inkjet printer replaces the ESP 9 as its flagship printer for the Fall season. After the ESP 9 received poor user reviews for suffering installation errors and poor customer service, we're hoping that the 9250 can step it up, but let's take a closer look.
First, the control panel gets a good scrubbing and we're happy to see Kodak abandoning the Tron-esque virtual buttons in favor of a physical control panel, but the display steps down to a 2.4-inch LCD, as opposed to 3-inches on the ESP 9.
As usual, the printer gives you the standard array of features you get in a multifunction printer including Wi-Fi, a full media card report with support for SD, MS, Duo, and CompactFlash cards, two separate trays for letter-sized and 4x6-inch photo paper, and and auto-document feeder for scanning and faxing large volumes of paper.
In addition, the ESP 9250 is the first model to offer printable templates that you can access through Kodak's EasyShare photo organizing software. The templates make it easy to print out almost any design including graph paper, line paper, wide ruled paper, games, grocery lists, and sheet music.
The Kodak ESP 9250 ships today for the same price as the ESP 9 at $250. More photos after the jump.… Read more
Apple's put a touch interface on so many of its other products, could an iMac be next?
If a patent application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is any indication, the answer is possibly yes. Patently Apple, a blog that keeps tabs on Apple's USPTO filings, noticed an application on Monday that depicts a hinged-screen version of Apple's iMac desktop that has a touch-sensitive screen. The hinge appears to allow the computer to alternate between a traditional vertical desktop configuration and a flat, iPad-like surface when rocked back on its hinge.
Because this would … Read more
