HP Deskjet 450Ci User Reviews
“If you need a portable printer this is a great choice. It’s very light weight and the picture quality is good. You can print different size photos, print on transparencies (which I have not tired) and print watermarks. My only complaint is that the power adaptor and power cord do not stay together. If I move the cords or bump into them they often come apart. I’m not sure if this is a problem for this model or it’s just my printer. I’m looking into it. “ – by A Customer
Just what I was looking for
“Really thrilled with this product ….I’d used both the Canon BJC 55 & 85 before and been constantly frustrated. The HP is much more ‘solid’, great design, yet small and compact. Best of all the print quality is superb – much higher res than the other models on the market, and the colours come out looking great. Sheet feeding is good ….no ‘catcher’so you have to give it enough space. But overall, for those with limited space, who want the option to travel, but who want to produce good looking results – its a great buy.” – by A Customer
Road Warriors Listen Up
“This printer has possibilities! It has completed 6 airplane trips checked as luggage and worked the first time every time. Although those trips only represent 2 months, its a better record than the BJC-85 or the HP-350 I owned (see my Amazon reviews). Dazzling print speed for a portable, really nice print quality and regular size ink catridges.” – by Larry M. Rubrich
Love this printer
“This printer works great, excellent HP quality with complete mobility. The resolution of the printouts, B/W and color are fabulous. We haven’t tried photo paper yet, but so far it is versatile in printing with different media.” – by A Customer
excellent portable or desktop printer
“If you need a portable printer this is a great choice. It is well-built & solid without being too heavy to take with you. At the same time, it’s versatile enough to be your everyday desktop printer too. I have tried a number of the “portable” printers that are available and so far the HP450ci looks the best, is built the best, and has lasted the longest even with a lot of use. In summary: It’s well-built, light weight and the print quality for text & pictures is good.” – by A Customer
very portable, sturdy & reliable
“I’m not sure why some other folks have had trouble with this printer – I have never had a single glitch & I have put it to the test. I travel a TON & take my laptop & printer with me almost every trip – the HP 450ci has withstood the wear & tear of over 50,000 of travel (air, car & train) in the past 9 months & aside from a few scratches here & there you’d never know it wasn’t fresh out of the box. I also have used my HP 450ci to print almost anything you can think of – text docs on regular mid-weight paper (“new” or recycled, both work fine), 8.5×11 photo paper, 4×6 photo paper, transparencies, labels, even t-shirt iron-on transfer sheets – not a single problem. Hope I didn’t just jinx myself! “ – by A Customer
“The printer printer works great, as any HP should. This is sold as a mobile printer but the battery is extra! I should think that a mobile device would come with the battery.” – by Danny E. Hackett
