HP Officejet H470

 

HP markets the Officejet H470wbt to the mobile business professional, but it chose aesthetics over performance. The sleek design and cost-effective cartridges give its rating a slight boost, but the degradation of print quality from the previous model...

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

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

HP Officejet H470

 

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

Nice design, Portable, Good print speeds, Good for document prints

Feeder tends to jam, Average colour print quality, Installation could be faster and easier, Expensive

HP Officejet H470 Mobile Printer

 

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

For those who need portability, the HP Officejet H470 Mobile Printer qualifies as one of those proverbial good things that come in small packages.

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 Inkjet Printer

 

The HP Officejet H470 could be convenient if for some reason you need a nearly full-size printer that comes with a vinyl carrying case with no handle or place for cables, and that can run off a battery and connect wirelessly or via Bluetooth. But since...

Battery or AC power, Networkable via wired / wireless network

Slow, So-so color quality, Small paper input tray (50 sheets maximum), Pricey, Error prone

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.

HP Officejet H470b

 

The H470b is the latest business-focused mobile printer from HP and it is the successor to the 460cb. While there are some minor improvements we'd lik...

Battery, small, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi not built-in, some colour issues

For those who travel a lot and need to print at short notice, the H470b provides the perfect solution. It's small and portable but still provides excellent quality text. With the additional options of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, the printer is...

HP OfficeJet H470 Mobile Inkjet Printer

 

This mobile printer from HP may lack a few niceties, but it's surprisingly cheap to run and print quality is reasonable good, too.
