The Good Quick output performance, Bluetooth wireless printing, and flexible scanning options makes the HP Officejet 150 Mobile a viable option for printing on the go.
The Bad The ability to print anywhere comes at a premium cost.
The Bottom Line The HP Officejet Mobile 150 is a useful travel companion for professionals, but you can spend half the cash on the touch-screen-free previous model that performs just as well.
HP Officejet 150 Mobile All-in-One
The HP Officejet 150 Mobile is ostensibly the same chassis as the HP Officejet 100. The new model includes a touch screen that doesn't actually add value to the printing functions, although it does skyrocket the retail price up to an unreasonable $399. While Bluetooth connectivity and multiple scanning options are certainly beneficial to anyone needing printer access away from the office, the Officejet 150 isn't worth the cost when the previous model retains its core functionality at a fraction of the price.
Design and features
The HP Officejet 150 mobile printer's physical composition is nearly identical to its predecessor with the exception of the 2.36-inch touch screen that folds back flush into the machine while in transport mode. A series of virtual buttons for menu navigation surround the display immediately to the left and right, while the other side of the control panel features four backlit icons that illuminate to indicate the status of a Bluetooth connection as well as your print, copy, and scan job monitors.
The Officejet 150 retains the exact same silver color scheme with a large lid that extends over the entire machine. Like the older version, the corners are contoured and the output bay, lid, and ink cartridge cover all fold neatly into the body of the printer for streamlined transport.
