A surprise portable printing solution
There are times when I need to have on-the-go printing during my business travels. Some hotels are set up for this, others aren’t. In most cases, it’s convenient to bring along my own printing solution.
I had a Canon BJC-80 that I used several years ago. It packed in, and I had to find a replacement. The Canon Pixma iP100 Portable Inkjet Printer is nice, but a little pricey.
I then discovered this HP Deskjet D1660, inspected its dimensions, and decided to give it a go.
I packed it for a business trip in the Middle East, and it worked fine. All folded up, it’s about the size of a regular bread bin. And it is light enough. It was a life saver on this particular trip.
Print quality is fine. I configured the settings to print in “Fast Draft” mode, which is noticeably quicker, uses less ink, and is sufficient for most printing requirements.
So, a portable (but checked-in flight bag) printing solution at a fraction of the price!
