This is a great product and sometimes insulted for being one. I don't really care for the other printers unless i see that hp sign on it. No matter what I would choose hp printers and computers over any other type of computer and printer systems. But there are some draw backs to the computers and printers that I can not dien that would be how slow they are. And they are likey to crash if you try and make them do more than a couple of things. And lastly the are really are a little to big for some people but for me i \would take one if I had the chance.

The Hewlett Packard H470 was provided by my office because I travel regularly. I needed something easy to carry and not bulky. It is one of the only "mobile" printers on the market. It really is lightweight and portable. It is Bluetooth capable. The Bluetooth from day one would not "sync" with my Lenovo ThinkPad. Our IT guy sent the first one back thinking it was just a glitch. The second one did the same thing. So, not very mobile when you have to use a USB cable. Printing is so-so. The ink cartridges do not yield a lot of copies. The lights started beeping uncontrollably one day. After deciphering what each light and the pattern meant, I discovered that the ink service module was full. This is the "reservoir" that houses the leftover black ink from the cartridge. After trips to every office supply store around town, I found that this part has to be ordered from HP. So, I started using just the color cartridge to print with. The last straw was when the lid broke off. The lid doubles as the paper chute/alignment. It is held by the flimsiest plastic pieces. The lid can hold only about 30-40 pieces of paper. So, this couldn't have been caused by misuse. I had to "rig" the back to stand up so that I wouldn't have to feed the paper piece by piece. Overall, I give it a big fat "F".

Handy mobile printer

By 

from Fairfield, CT

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

Where should I begin..... First let me begin by saying that I have been an avid HP printer consumer for over twenty years. That being said, you would think I would continue to be a fan of HP. The simple answer is: not necessarily. The quality of HP printers has gone in the past years. Most of the problems with HP includes overpriced cartridges that dry quickly if the printer is not used as often, paper jam issue that are too many to list, and the overall craftmanship of the printers. In addition, HP only provides trial size version of their printer cartridges with all new printers, including this model. Besides these factors, this printer is still very useful when on the road.

Good print quality, fast and lightweight

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

My first printer is Canon Pixma MP540 brand. One day it was broken and after that I decided to use HP printer. Many my friends told me about its quality of printing and branding. 

Why I like it: this printer is tiny and lightweight. I didn't have any problems with installation. It prints fast and I am very satisfied with the quality. 

What I don't like in this printer: the price.... I know that we need to pay for the quality and for additional functions but we have many good printers on the market at the lower price. I also didn't use that HP printer for a long time. I know it is my mistake... but anyway I was upset when I saw that the head of the inks already dry. It is costs money to change a new printer ink cartridges

Before to buy this printer you need to answer on the next questions : how often are you going to use it? Are you sure that you did a full research on the market? Good luck!

HP H470 inkjet is great

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

The Hewlett Packard H470 inkjet printer is a great item for the home. I like the capability of the mobile digital portion of this printer especially the part that will allow you to send photos from the phone directly to the printer. There's alot of printer that can do alot of things but can they do what this printer can do and be so compact with it's features. The wireless printing and networking is a great essential to this product, you don't have to hook up any cables to get the job done. Just send what ever you want printed to this wireless printer device and you are in business, connect this device to your wireless network and everyone on your wireless network can do the same. This wireless printer device is very compact and convient, it's great when you can carry your printer around with you. I like to advertise sometimes so this will work great with my advertising efforts, plus I take picture and process them right then and there. Now who can beat that! The Hewlett Packard H470 is a great introduction to the new technology.

Best printer ever

By 

from Bristol, TN

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

I absolutely love this printer, it prints professional looking photos right in my home. The family loves the new pictures of me and my husband. Compared to the other photo printer the hp inkjet does a superior job, there are no smudges or ink spots on the photos and I do not have to waste time, ink and photo paper reprinting for a better photo I know I am going to get the perfect photo every time.  Although this photo printer cost more than any other printer I have tried it is worth every penny and I would not consider another photo printer ever. This printer has been the absolute best value for my money and I am most satisfied with it. It is small, compact and easy to use, it didn't take hours to sync it with my laptop and within minutes I have the software downloaded, the printer was ready and printing some of the best picture I have ever seen from an at home photo printer. In the long run I do believe this printer will save me not only money on ink and paper but time and frustration. I have had this printer for only 2 months and I love it.

high quality pictures

By 

from Saint Louis, MO

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

The HP H470 inkjet photo printer produces quality images everytime I use it!  This printer is designed to be small enough to be transported and easily hooked into a camera to instantaneously produce quality images that can easily print images directly from the camera.  The printer produces images that are 4800 dpi in color, and when the cartridges are full, the colors that are produced from images just jump off the page.  This printer not only runs off AC power, but also has a rechargable lithium battery that will allow the printer to be transported and not rely on an electrical outlet to produce pictures.  Unfortunately, the software that comes with the printer is an absolute pain to install on a computer with a windows seven operating system, so beware of the possible hangups that might occur.  Essentially, only the device needs to be installed, but those who are looking for more editing capabilities, this could be a problem.

HP H470 InkJet Photo Printer

By 

from Sparks, NV

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

This little printer is very portable.  It has a battery that will allow you to "print on the go"  For people who need a reliable printer while working on vacation (think RV travel) and not always able to use the generators or connect to an electrical outlet, this little printer is the "cat's meow".  

This printer is versatile because it can print via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.  Unfortunately, in order to print via WiFi you will need an adapter that in my opinion is too costly. 

Another unfortunate thing, just like all other inkjet printers, is the cost of the ink.  This cost may be offset by those of us who like to fool around with photo software to get the 'perfect' picture in the size of our choosing.  HP has always made realiable computers and printers and the quality of their photo inks is among the best.

One solution to extend the life of the ink is to use a ziploc bag and expressing as much air out of the bag as possible.  Leaving the cartridges unused inside the printer only invites fast drying.  I would not recommend this printer for anything more than printing photos.  For business letters, a laser printing would cost a lot less to operate.

Awesome Inkjet Photo Printer

By 

from Bronx, NY

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

The Hp H470 InkJet Photo Printer works extremely well. The pictures it prints have vibrant colors and are very clear. The printer prints rather quickly and gets the job done in high quality. It is an awesome value for the money, and well worth it if  you are looking to buy a new photo printer. This printer works for printing every day documents as well as outstanding photos. You can print the photos on ordinary paper, or you can purchase the special picture paper ( which is worth it ) You can size the photos to fit just about any size photo paper. The design of the printer itself is excellent, it is has a sleek design, and it doesn't take up too much room in the office. The only downfall is that the ink gets used up kind of quickly ( and we all know how much new ink cartriges are these days). So far I haven't had any problems with this printer and would reccomend it to anyone looking for a new printer.

Hp h470 inkjet photo printer isn't as great as you think

By 

from Tazewell, TN

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

The Hp 470 injet printer isn't up to HP quality. This printer has failed to get the job done for me so many times. The paper jams and the photos smear and then all the sudden it will quit working all together. I  took mine to the dump and gave it a good throw. I can't believe hp put out such garbage.

HP H470 is a great printer for our space-limited RV lifestyle!

By 

from Rusk, TX

Comments about HP H470 Mobile Color Inkjet Printer:

My husband and I were looking for a small printer for our motorhome.  We live in our motorhome and travel but really wanted a quality printer but needed one that would not take up much space.

I love the HP H470!  It is lightweight, and compact.  It really has exceeded my expectations.  I highly recommend this printer for people on the go.
