HP OfficeJet 150 Mobile CN550A All-In-One Color Inkjet Printer
HP produces high-quality official printers and they are almost found in every office. Especially HP OfficeJet printers make quality printing, scanning, copies and work briskly every time. This review is all about to study the details of the printer and its quality of work for the consumers need.
HP OfficeJet 150 Mobile CN550A is acclaimed as the world’s first mobile All-in-One color inkjet Printer. It has a 220 MHz processor and 64 MB print memory. It aims at fulfilling the demand of those who (like a construction engineer) require print service at some remote locations, where electricity could not be arranged for a printer.
With AIO functions and wireless & touch input method, HP CN550A is designed for special requirement. It is a very efficient machine and serves the purpose of easy mobility. It is costly, though.
Equipped with some unique features and bundled in one mobile product, this printer performs quality work for its all in one feature. The product is battery-operated and is paired with wireless printing capability.
The first portable battery operated all in one device
It is the first inkjet mobile All-in-One device, which is not difficult to carry with you during your journey. The device is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that allows around 500 prints. A 2.36-inch touchscreen right on the top of this printer offers a much easier way to play with its features.
A variety of connectivity
The most important thing of the product is that it is a wireless laser printer. It offers a number of connectivity options for the user. You can use the 2.36-inch color touchscreen to print, scan, and make copies quickly. You can use your USB 2.0 to print via laptop.
The PicBridge interface will allow you to print quality pictures. Wireless LAN, card slots, USB flash memory, and Bluetooth also connect it as well. This has a provision for selected smartphones and mobile phones using Bluetooth. You can print directly from Windows Mobile phones, Blackberry, and Android smartphones.
However, the wireless protocol is just for print only and it does not support the scanning. Google Cloud Print or AirPrint is not expected, as there is no support for Wi-Fi or Ethernet networking system.
Quality of work
The HP printers make quality work. It prints five pages text document in just one minute. It promises lab quality photo prints and 4 x 6-inch borderless photos. It also prints quickly with up to 5cpm for black and white and 3.5 CPM for color depending on resolution. The fully charged battery can print 500 pages and scan 140 pages.
Following are the other basic information for the customers, which will help them to make an option for going for this mobile printer.
The paper feeder
It doubles as the lid and can hold up to 50 sheets. The printer is a sheet feed scanner than a flatbed scanner. So it is advisable to feed more pages one at a time into the scanner. This scanner is not ideal for scanning books or magazines.
The printer is empowered with a high-quality battery that will last for a long time. As it is portable, you can take it with you to any destination and use the printer. The Lithuanian battery has longevity and you will not bother to change or replace unwanted.
The cartridge has absolute performance. The high yield black cartridge prints 500 pages and high yield tri-color cartridge prints 560 pages. So, you will face no difficulty in exigencies.
- As the printer has both printing and scanning facilities you need not worry to buy a separate scanner.
- It has a 220 MHz processor for fast scanning and copying
- It has more versatile and flexible compatibility
- You can use smartphones, Windows Mobile Phones, Blackberry, and Android Phone for direct print.
- Powerful battery
- Excellent built quality
- A reliable and quality performer
- Costs too much
- Scanning quality is not so high
- It takes a lot of time for photo printing
- Not that much easier to carry in a bag during travel
As a customer, I strongly believe that the product should be procured seeing its quality work as well as the longevity of it. HP printer has its credential. The HP 150 Mobile CN550A All-In-One Color Inkjet Printer is a very new product to market with all modern technological facilities. So, I cannot just accept that it is too costly as it costs 25,990 rupees. But I have found after using it that it is not scanning excellently as I expect.
The second important thing is that it is not that much easy to carry. It weighs 3.1kg and it is too big and heavy to keep in the briefcase. The photo quality may vary, but it is not a problem. Google Cloud Print or AirPrint is not expected, as there is no support for Wi-Fi or Ethernet networking system. This printer is more suitable to use at a remote site; certainly it is not for office and home use. Thus, take a wise decision as per your requirement.
