HP Officejet H470

 

Despite being a little expensive, the HP Officejet H470 is a reliable portable printer.

H470WBT Mobile

 

The HP Officejet H470 Mobile Printer targets people who travel a lot yet need to print reports, photos, and brochures straight from a notebook, camera, or phone.

High-quality text and photo printing Prints from Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and cards

Erratic paper feed Slow performance

Though it offers desktop-quality printing from a wide variety of devices, the H470 is hampered by slow performance. Still, mobile users will find it a worthy competitor to Canon's portable Pixma iP90v

HP Officejet H470 Mobile Printer

 

The HP Officejet H470 Mobile Printer delivers nearly desktop printer quality and speed in a portable package.

Portable. Optional Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and rechargeable battery.

Subpar text for an ink jet. Heavier than some notebooks, at 4.5 pounds for the printer itself. ; Watch the HP Officejet H470 Mobile Printer Video Review!

HP Officejet H470 review

 

Hewlett-Packard recently released its Officejet H470 Mobile Series, an update to its line of portable inkjet printers. The models range from $224 to $314, which isn't cheap, considering the majority of home inkjets cost less than $100. The print...

Relatively fast; low cost per page; sleek new color scheme.

Poor-quality prints; glitch-prone paper feeder; dSLR owners will miss the CompactFlash port.

The casing of the Officejet H470wbt is almost identical to the 460c, but this time HP went with a matte black finish instead of silver. Aesthetically, we really enjoy the design of the H470wbt. The corners are contoured and the flaps all neatly fold...

HP Officejet H470wbt Mobile Printer

 

HP has usually done a pretty good job with the products that they bring out and that seems to stand with the HP Officejet H470wbt Mobile Printer. It is a nice printer designed for people who are always on the go. It folds up into a nice compact package...

The HP Officejet H470wbt has a fast print speed and high print resolution

For such a small device and fast print speed, there is a higher chance of paper jams and maintenance issues

For a compact printer the HP Officejet H470wbt has everything you need.

Efficient printing on the go
