Pros

Special ink cartridge allows for high-quality, on-the-go photo printing.

1 agrees

Great performance--decent printing speed, excellent quality prints, from documents to photos, in a very small form factor.

1 agrees

Print directly from CompactFlash cards--cuts out the need for a PC when printing digital photos.

1 agrees

Compatible with most wired and wireless devices (infrared, USB, Bluetooth).

Cons

Despite its advertised portability, it's still not the most portable device as it adds an extra 4.5 lbs to your portable gear.

1 agrees

Lithium-ion battery must be purchased separately, limiting the "print anywhere" design.

1 agrees

Printing from CompactFlash requires that your camera supports DPOF (Digital Print Order Format)--a lot of non-HP cameras don't.

1 agrees

Bluetooth connectivity requires purchasing a separate adapter--something which often comes standard with the base model.
