Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer
  • My wife loved this surprise quality, speed, the colors, the app. All top notch
  • I'm amazed at how quickly the photos transfer for my phone to the printer and am even more impressed with the printing speed. I'd definitely recommend this.
  • There is a bit of lag between sending the image file to the printer via Bluetooth and when the printer starts printing. We typically see a wait time of about 10-15 seconds for an image to be sent to the printer.
  • This is very useful if you write journals. Also, I use this for travelling where I can share photos with locals. Color is also nice too. Yet, the speed of printing the photos is a bit slow. but i love it.
  • I was amazed with the speed and quality of the prints produced by this printer.

What customers say about "Printing / Scanning"
HP Sprocket 200 Photo Printer
  • The print quality is great for such a small printer.
  • Print quality really good. Easy to use would definitely recommend.
  • Easy to use and prints great quality photos in seconds. Love it.
  • Lightweight, compact and prints small photos. Good quality.
  • Printing is loud for such a small printer and the quality could be better.
Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer
  • The photo paper is a bit pricey but I love that you can customize with the phone app and that the film has peel off backing to make your photos into stickers. Resolution is pretty dang good considering the business-card size pics.
  • One heck of a printer, no ink to get refilled, small & compact, great resolution
  • The only downside is that the only size paper this handles is 2" x 3" (about the size of a business card).
  • Picture Quality- Not good compared to other options. Low resolution and poor color translation. This is key for me!
  • On the con side the color can be slightly off and resolution isn't that great. But I didn't buy it expecting it to the same things as my desktop printer and it does the things I bought it for very well.

What customers say about "Features"
HP Sprocket 200 Photo Printer
  • The photo quality is good, and the app works reasonably well.
  • In the app you can add filters and text, and tweak your image. Great feature!
  • Setting it up with the app on my phone was incredibly easy and editing and printing the pictures is fairly simple.
  • The free app works well and very customisable and colourful options to add to the finished photograph before it goes to print.
  • I love being able to print photos from my phone at home. Perfect for journaling.
Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer
  • There is an app that you can download and connect it in order to print, but what is really cool is that you're able to decorate, write and edit your photos before printing. LOVE the concept.
  • The printer is very user friendly. U dont really need a manual for it. As long as you have NFC in ur phone. Or bluetooth. Just connect it. And it'll open the app. Automatically, or take you to the app market to download the free app.
  • The bluetooth connection with phone is easy. So, all you need is your iPhone with this device in your pocket and you are ready for Africa or Latin America.
  • This doesn't make any sense to me. Other buyers have been able to use it. The instructions to install it are clear and short, there's no room for misinterpretation. But I consistently get "Unable to connect selected printer".
  • I'm sure this product WAS great before but the product and the app have connection issues. If I could give this 0/5 stars I would.
