HP Tango X

 

HP's Tango X "smart printer," the first we've tested with voice activation and smart home features, is all about printing from mobile devices. It's not perfect, but given its unique free-snapshot printing angle, it will be a tough act for future models...

HP Tango X Review: A Convenient (but Disappointing) Wireless Printer

 

The HP Tango X, while designed for people whose online lives revolve around the cloud and a smartphone, may be a good fit only for those looking solely for a printer. Print speeds from a PC are fast, and print quality is very high. Although print costs...

High print quality ; Quick graphics and photo printing ; Text printing is faster than average ; Compact, stylish design

No flatbed scanner ; No control panel for stand-alone operation ; Copy/scan quality from smartphone app is poor ; Copying is slow

The small wireless HP Tango X prints quickly and delivers high print quality, but the smartphone copy and scan functions leave much to be desired.
