The Photosmart C309a is one of HP's low-cost multifunction wireless printers. In promotion, HP emphasizes the convenience and ease of use of the C309a. This printer sends and receives faxes, copies, scans and prints photos. The automatic document feeder, a common feature on HP printers, allows you to fax, scan or copy up to fifty pages unattended. If you need to make checklists, calenders or cover sheets for your faxes, the Quick Form templates make these thing easy to design. The built-in wireless of the C309a allows you to print from Wi-Fi enabled PCs and Bluetooth-enabled cell phones. There is also an Ethernet port you can connect and print from, for when you need a more secure connection. As the name of the Photosmart series implies, HP promotes these printers as offering consistently high-quality photo prints (thanks to HP's built-in photo enhancement features). You can view, edit and print these photos without a PC, thanks to the color display and memory card slots. HP recommends you use their Advanced Photo Paper for photo printing, to ensure that these prints will last a long time.
