To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Could not connect to any device at all. The app didn’t even work. Went to the website to download drivers and the link was dead. Big paperweight. Returned. I hope they figure it all out because I’d love to have this if it worked.
Major issues trying to get it to connect to my computer in the first place. Then the printing size was strange and unreadable. Tried contacting tech support through the app as recommended. Unfortunately, it’s all in mandarin. After several hours of searching the internet, I finally managed to get it to print in a readable size. However, when I actually took it out to use portably, it wouldn’t work with my computer. My computer would see it, but would say there was an issue and restart every time I clicked on the printer name to try to print. I am currently trying to return it.
Was a little hesitant to buy this but I needed a very small mobile printer. This was a good decision. A couple of important facts: 1. It works on my Android cell phone 2. It works on my iPad (miracle of miracles) 3. it takes standard U.S. 8 1/2" X 11" printer paper (as well as the A4 size)
Took a while to get everything going. Had to download their printing app - one for my cellphone and one for my Apple iPad. That worked O.K. But getting the printer connected to my systems took a bit of fiddling.
Another quirky feature of the printer is that if you want to print a document you don't do it from the document. You do it from the MT800 printer app. You have to search for your document from within the printer app - and that also took some fiddling for me to successfully perform.
The info I found on the Amazon webpage for the printer led me to believe that the printer might not yet be able to print from my iPad. Well it can - and does so just fine. Which is REALLY a plus for me.
This printer will solve a problem for me of needing to print a document far away from any desktop printer.
I was surprised at how well it performs, how well it seems to be made, and at the quality of the print. Another surprise to me was how heavy it was. Sort of like a brick (but in actuality, it's only about half the weight of a brick).
There is one BIG downside to the printer. You can't print from the file you have to print. You have to go into the printer app, and then find the file you want to print from within the app. Sometimes that is, at least for me, impossible. The ability to search for a file from within the app is EXTREMELY limited - and obtuse. So, if I can’t find the file I want, the printer is useless.
One other pain is that you have to ask for a code every time you start up the app. Which is a COLOSSAL pain.
If HPRT could fix that app so that you can print from the file, it would be far more useful.
This portable scanner has very good features going for it. It is very light and easy to carry around. It does not take lots of space on my office desk or in a drawer. It has an inbuilt battery that charges through a USB C which is really cool. I found the interface very user-friendly and easy to install. I was able to download the app as per instructions and then print the documents in a very short time. I believe the ink drum are costly to get. I am just using them when I really need them.
They were very clear with no black areas on the print for the prince I have paid. Very fast and efficient. This is exactly what I needed. One of the most versatile and useful devices you will find. Love it.
You have to Google "hprt driver mt800". There is a drop-down list for drivers and you just pick MT800Q - it will install on your computer. Initially the pages weren't totally clear, but after about 5-7 pages it will start printing like normal. Still haven't tried the bluetooth capabilities from my phone.
I've searched on so many label printers that I can easily print the labels from Royal Mail and Hermes that easily and so much time-saving to drop parcel off as I always sell stuffs on marketplaces online. I'm really busy. But since got this label printer, it's so simple and fantastic way to print a label at home without any communication need plus able to print from my phone via WIFI wireless without needing to plug in my laptop which is brilliant! Very easy to set up and the steps are straightforward as just download app on phone/laptop then set up connection with the printer. Print speed is fast and includes die cut on each label too! Worth every penny I spent on this printer!
Since I’ve been working from home due to the pandemic, I wanted to get a portable printer that I can use at home, as well as take with me if I wanted to work at an off-site location and print something on the spot. This is compact and lightweight weighing less than 3 pounds and I can easily place this in my business tote or backpack. Unfortunately, this does not come with a protective case which is sold separately. It would have been nice if this was included.
This printer can be connected via wired connection using the included USB cable and the driver needs to be downloaded from the HRPT website. This can also be connected via Bluetooth and there is a free mobile app named “Hi-Print” that can be downloaded and is compatible with iOS and Android phones. With this mobile app, I can conveniently print out documents from my cell phone which is nice. This printer is easy to operate simply by holding down the power button for 3 seconds and feeding in the printer paper. The paper feeder can hold up to 70 sheets at once. This printer is rechargeable and can last up to 26 hours on standby mode and there is a LED indicator light. When the light is green, the printer is charging and will turn off when fully charged. When the light is white, the printer is on standby mode. When the light is red, it means the printer ribbon needs to be replaced.
The beauty of this printer is that it’s a thermal printer. Rather than using ink, this uses tiny heating elements to activate or transfer pigments. Instead of ink, the thermal ribbon is the only part that needs to be replaced. The print quality doesn't show as strongly as an ink printer or more expensive laser printer, but it’s pretty decent and meets my needs for quick prints. I’m just thrilled that I can print easily anywhere, anytime!
I was blown away by the compactness of this printer. It’s amazing that such technology exits. For me, it’s super convenient to take to job sites where if someone needs a physical copy of an agreement or I need a physical signature I just connect via Bluetooth and out prints a nice clean and clear paper.
Setting it up is very simply and straightforward. I can customize the amount of ink to use as the more ink the better the clarity but the quicker it is used up. Well technically isn’t not the typical ink as it is a toner roll but to keep it simple…the ink.
I use standard printing paper and it works fine. I have to “feed” the paper in to have the machine register the paper and then the rest is automatic.
I have not had any issues so far. Personally, I make sure not to keep it in my car if it is really hot outside so the toner doesn’t run but in general as long as it’s not in direct sunlight and there isn’t a lot of ambient heat it will work just fine. I’ve printer over 50 pages without any issues.
