First Look: HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer

1:59 /

The HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer is a useful accessory for working on the road. The convenience comes at a premium, but its quick prints, wireless access, and rechargeable battery make it worth the cost.

If you're a travelling professional that needs the convenience of a portable printer that really won't take that much room in your carry-on luggage. Well, this device is your answer. I'm Justin Yu, Associate Editor for CNET.com. This is your first look at the HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer. So, the goal of any mobile device is to pair down the machine to its smallest possible form. In the Mobile 100, it's just small enough to fit into a briefcase or carry-on bag. The paper input tray at the bottom and the cover for the dual-ink cartridges both fold neatly into the body of the printer, and it weights about the same as a 15-inch Apple MacBook Laptop and that's with the lithium-ion rechargeable battery installed. So, you can print on a number of different kinds of paper types and sizes, thanks to the adjustable slider here. You can use the standard 8-1/2 x 11 sheet piece of paper or you can also go down to a 3 x 5 inch index card. HP makes things even more convenient by adding Built-in Wireless Bluetooth and they encouraged you to use it by not putting a USB cord in the box. So, if you want a wire connection, you'll have to buy your own. You can also print using the PictBridge USB port at the back. But, HP strangely removes the media card slot that we saw on previous models, which is a little bit inconvenient. But, this [unk] cartridge printer is made for office documents and not quite so much photos anyway, so we won't complain too much. The HP Office Jet 100 may cost more that your average single function printer, but it makes improvement over previous models with that sleek design and improved output quality. Also, the rechargeable battery and Bluetooth Wireless give you the freedom to leave those messy cords at home and travel light. So, if you're business depends on outputting jobs on the road, the HP Officejet 100 Printer definitely deserves your attention. You can read more details like speed and quality test results on our full review on cnet.com, but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu. You just took a first look at the HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer. Thanks for watching.
