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 H470wf Mobile Printer

 

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.

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...

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.

Consumer review by:

"CHEAP - do not buy HP!"

 

After five years of wanting to go Office Space on this piece of you know what...I did. From day one this printer has been a headache. Printer will print half of a page then decide to not print the rest and just shoot out the paper. Also, will sometimes...

Printer itself is compact.

Not versatile, glitches constantly, loud and poor printing quality.

Consumer review by:

"Can you spell J.U.N.K?"

 

The print quality was far better than my old iP90. Ink last longer too.

This printer is noisy and fragile. The print heads won't travel accross the length of the machine without geting stuck. After trying all of HP's troubleshooting techniques I finally said to hell with it and bought an iP100. Don't buy it!

A Real Disappointment

 

This was a great disappointment. It took several installs and reinstalls to get the software to work - the printer kept mysteriously showing up as disconnected. Then when I downloaded updates they sent the printer into disconnect again. Rather...

Realtively small and portable

Papere jams far too often, software setup had a number of problems, print quality on simple B&W documents is just average at best

"fantastic printer for travel"

 

bottom line - GREAT

easy setup, small, pretty fast and good quality printing.

Was told I must remove ink cartridges prior to airline travel, or ink might leak. I do not plan on testing this theory
