Review Of HP's Portable Printer Scanner Combo: The OfficeJet 250

All-in-one printers have historically tended to be bulkier and heavier than their single-function counterparts. Although the same holds true today, Hewlett-Packard aims to close the gap with the release of the portable printer scanner OfficeJet 250 from HP.

HP 250 All-In-One

Multi-Function Print + Scan + Copy


If your work requires not only printing but also scanning or copying invoices, contracts and receipts, then this mobile all-in-one printer can be the perfect solution. With dimensions of 7.8 x 15 x 3.6 inches and a weight of around 6 pounds, the printer can be carried around conveniently in a travel bag, giving you the ability to print, scan, and copy on demand.

There's a 2.6 inch color touchscreen that allows you to easily execute your desired function. The tilt of the screen can also be adjusted for better viewing angles. This is also where you can launch HP Web applications.

The connectivity choices are USB, Wi-FI wireless, and Wi-Fi Direct. The HP OfficeJet 250 is also AirPrint compatible, which means you can print directly from your iOS device. It also works perfectly with MacBook laptops. The easy setup process guides you through the steps on how to configure your devices and if needed, update and install the latest drivers.

The unit already comes with a Lithium Ion battery. With a fast recharge time of 90 minutes, you can ensure that you'll be ready to print any time. The battery life is also fantastic, as it can last a full week with normal use.

When it comes to output quality, you can't go wrong with the HP OfficeJet 250. A resolution of up to 600dpi means your images will be vivid and lively. The HP 62 black ink cartridge and HP 62 black tri-color cartridge has decent page yield. There's also the option of upgrading to HP 62XL black and tri-color ink cartridges. They may have higher price tags, but the XL cartridges are highly recommended for lower per-page print costs and longer usable life.

The portable Mac compatible printer scanner HP OfficeJet 250 is an excellent choice for a mobile all-in-one printer. MacBook and iOS users who need more than the print function cannot go wrong with this model.

A Review Of HP's Portable Wireless Printer: The Office Jet 200

Finding a portable printer that is compatible with MacBook and iOS was a huge problem. Although some printers on the market offer compatibility with Apple devices, they simply might not do a good enough job in terms of print quality or compete on other features or price.

But this problem came to an end with the introduction of the portable wireless printer, the Apple friendly HP OfficeJet 200. Now, you can print with your MacBook or iPad on the go. This proves extremely beneficial especially if your work entails printing invoices, receipts and contracts on the road.

This MacBook travel printer has an excellent combination of portability and print quality. The dimensions are 14.3 x 7.32 x 2.7 inches. It only weighs 4.85 pounds. This makes the product very easy to carry around wherever you go. It can easily fit a handbag or backpack, offering so much convenience.

The HP Office Jet 200 is equipped with HP Original 62 series ink cartridge with a yield of a few hundred pages. The printing speed doesn't disappoint. It can churn out 10 black and white pages per minute and 7 colored pages per minute. Using optional XL - extra large, high-capacity Black and Tri-Color cartridges will save money over the long term.

Printing speed while on battery power goes down about 10%, but it should still be fast enough for the average user. And speaking of battery, unlike Canon's iP110 travel printer, it's already included in the box. It takes 90 minutes to fully charge the battery, and it can last more than a week with normal printing.

The setup process is also very simple. After plugging in the AC power source, the black and white LCD screen guides you through every step of setting up your MacOS or iOS device. The 2-inch grayscale screen may seem a bit small for some users, but the control buttons on either side make navigation relatively easy.

Quality-wise, the printer does an excellent job. You won't have any issues with resolution. The replacement cartridges cost quite a lot, however. The 62XL black and tri-color inkjet cartridges have higher page yields, but they're considerably more expensive than the starter cartridges.

The portable wireless printer HP Office Jet 200 works seamlessly with MacBook and iOS devices. It's a high quality printer that allows you to print anywhere, anytime from a Mac, iPad or iPhone. You can even print without a network connection using Wi-Fi Direct. Although it isn't the cheapest, smallest or lightest portable Mac compatible printer around, the HP Office Jet 200 offers outstanding value for money.
