So for that kind of use and for it's size I am a minimalist and want to have as little or nothing sitting on counters as possible I gave it 5 stars. I have to clean the print heads on this printer about once every 3 weeks or so. A competing printer allows for Bluetooth connectivity, but who uses that anymore? Still useful though, in my opinion. So far, I've printers nearly 35 pages the first day of use initial ink tanks and barely placed a dent in the cartridge. Now, I take this printer with me nearly everywhere within reason. Especially if I do not use it for about 7-10 days, I have to run a cleaning. It's a great combination, but it's annoying when you really need to print something, and then you notice your prints do not come out correctly.
Please know though that this is a printer intended for mobile use. Then your maintenance box will need replacement. The ink nozzle gets clogged easily and then prints messy. It's still running well, sort of. I do worry that one day this machine could have a clogged head, because previous Epson's I've owned were plagued with this in some fashion - but I bought an extended warranty thru SquareTrade, so I am comfortable for at least 3 years with peace of mind in case it does fail. The setup guide was very easy, and within 5 minutes I was printing.
If you use GoogleCloud Print, it's available to receive print jobs from there. However, it's form factor and ability to print from its internal built in battery still makes it a favorable travel companion when printing reports and the like. There's a smart chip on the maintenance tank underneath the printer that tells the printer it's scarred for life once it's estimated life has been depleted. The printer ink tanks look small - and they are! I don't know how it could be. I still have this printer.
The printer is so portable, I was able to stick it in my laptop bag. All in all - this printer is wonderful. The printer will automatically clean the nozzle but waste ink and time doing so Can you imagine on the road then the printer stops for maintenance. Also, sometimes I just want to print one page, but if I put only one page in the printer, it does not seem able to pick it up, it keeps trying and then it stops trying. Not totally light but not the heaviest either so one could carry around with them if needed.
So, if you want to pay shipping on that as well, you're lucky. I used to own the Canon Pixma mobile printer, which was really good even though the bluetooth connection was tenuous. I'm not sure if this is intentional or not, but I think it's important that you fellow Amazon shoppers know that the heads clogging are something that appear to be common. For me, this is huge. Other than this annoying thing and the fact that the maintenance box requires replacement every so often, this is not the most economically engineered machine.
The printer can handle envelopes 10, I've tried and it's neat! You get about 40 - 50 sheets of color or 70ish pages of black and white on a full charge in my experience. You have a serious, deadly competitor to the other mobile printers on the market in my opinion. I get about two pages printed then problems. Wireless mobile printer The lightweight, wireless mobile printer for professionals on the go. It's nice and it's a conversation starter everywhere I go. Another thing I like, is that to my knowledge, unlike another mobile printer - this printer has access to online printing cloud service like Google CloudPrint, Apple AirPrint and EpsonConnect available when connected to WiFi. Now, if you're printing like 50 sheets at once, on battery power, it's no speed demon but for a few pages, speed is acceptable.
So now I always put several pages in, even if I am printing one page and it finds the page easier. Also, the printer used about half of the maintenance tank there's an ink level + maintenance tank life meter on the screen during the initialization process. The automatic power-off feature saves battery life. The printer, when running on battery power, will automatically shut itself off after so many minutes of inactivity, which I appreciate because you could forget to turn it off. It is a good printer to have at home for some ad-hoc printing one has to do. I can't comment on estimated page yield because I haven't run it down just yet - but so far, I'm pleasantly surprised. If you find trouble charging the device, update the firmware using the user guide.
Many laptops don't even have Bluetooth available. It's so portable and the utility of this printer should not be overlooked. This printer cannot do automatic double sided printing. WiFi is a hit or miss so I you start with cable connection to make it connect property each time. While I usually just take things out of the box and try it without downloading software and it might have worked ; because I am a new Mac user, I wanted it to be without glitches. Or - you wait for a free shipping on ink offer and they'll usually ship it free with your ink purchase. Sleep looking and good quality build.
Do not let the printer's size fool you! My only guess is storing in briefcase causes the problem. I keep it in a cupboard and take it out whenever I need it. This printer is very very quiet. Offering built-in wireless connectivity plus Wi-Fi Direct, you can print invoices, contracts and more from your iPad, iPhone, tablet, smartphone or laptop. That being said, you could take it on a business trip--or pleasure trip if you need to print, or if you just want to amaze people with how cool you are! Very easy to set up. Well, let me tell you.
