Pros: The IR and battery pack are great features.
Cons: As with previous models, the 340 & 350, this printer has serious feed roller quality issues. I work IT for a company that has thousands of these printers and they all fail before one year. The feed rollers become smooth and no longer pick up the pap

Don't believe CNET review or comments below -- this is the one
Pros: Fantastic, career-rescuing product. No joke. Was in UK on a project, went into the store looking for the canon (based on CNET positive reviews) was forced to buy the HP because it was the only one in stock. Amazing product. Charged it once, three weeks ag
Cons: I'd be the fourteen millionth person to complain about having to drop twenty extra bucks on a USB cable, but I don't care if it's become an industry standard or not. It's ridiculous to include a serial cable (which must be just as expensive to manafacture

Don't get this!!
by Lizbeth2005 on April 4, 2005
Pros: It worked for a few months - that is all.

Summary: This was a waste of money. It had feeding problems that got progressively worse within its first year. By one year it was completely incapable of feeding itself and was a real headache. The HP phone line people sent sticky cards to clean it, which did not work. It got sent to Paris to be fixed for a long time. When it returned it worked precariously for a few hours and then got worse because I then couldn't even feed it myself by hand! So now it is a heap of trash. I feel thoroughly ripped off and conned by HP. I will never buy HP again after this exprience. VERY bad quality. TOTALLY UNRELIABLE. Save your self the stress. Do not buy this.

Worthless piece of junk that HP won't fix or honor the warranty!!!
by eoheger on August 30, 2006

Cons: Nothing matters when it won't feed.

Summary: I got this from my company. We bought it less than a year ago, new. It takes 10+ tries get it to feed. This is pointless for me since I need it to print on the fly and in a hurry. I contacted HP and they told me that it was out of warranty. It isn't, but I'm convinced now that HP will never receive and more business from either my company or anyone who will listen to my story.

Worst HP printer ever.
Pros: Fast, good quality at first.
Cons: I'm a network admin for my firm and every single user that has one of these printers has complained to me about problems. Mechanical or quality problems every single one of my users has been disappointed. Not to mention the headaches it's giving me.

Summary: My company buys these for our outside sales reps. Great idea, but they constantly jam. I mean constantly. I have owner 3 separate machines since 2 have jammed so badly they stopped working. Our IT group doesn't try to repair them, they just send a new one. I am not the only person in my group to have these same problems. Unfortunately, the security controls on my notebook do not allow me to download any other software, or else I would use my home printer. This printer is not worth the money and I got it FREE

extremely happy with this printer
Pros: I bought the hp450wbt printer with some reservations (after reading some of the negative reviews on the net). However, so far, I am more than satisfied with the product. The bluetooth connectivity works flawlessly with my laptop (Dell Inspiron with millio
Cons: I am having a problem getting the printer to print via the infrared port. (Although I'd be the first to admit I may have screwed up with the setup!)

Pros: If you can get it to feed, prints great - compact size, bluetooth works well, cartridges are inexpensive and last for many prints, battery has a long print life, & affordable.
Cons: Feeder works 10% of the time, HP won't service ANYTHING even with a PAID contract!
Summary: FEEDER PROBLEM!

Summary: FEEDER PROBLEM!
What happened to the golden days of HP in the 90s when they were a good company? I've always liked their printers except for this one. I paid for a 3-year plan and they won't ever service it or anything. Because of this, I will never buy anything HP again.
I bought the new Canon ip90v to replace this piece of junk and although it's $150 more (including the bluetooth and battery - must be purchased separately) than the new HP Wireless 460wbt, it will be well worth avoiding the headache of dealing with HP or the feeder problem of their portable printers.
I need something that is at least 90% reliable in a portable printer for my sales route and this one just does not cut it. I have already taken a sledgehammer to this printer because I will not sell it on eBay to somebody because it would be unethical to put this type of headache on another human being.
2 thumbs down, 8 fingers down, and 10 toes down.
Good Mobile Printer
Pros: Blue tooth or I-Red, totally wireless, good print speed. I have used this for business at clients homes. Worked perfectly everytime. I like the abiltiy to be 100% wireless. The printer worked great. The thing to remember is to keep the printer with in 3
Cons: Heavy compared to the Canon. Would love to have carrying case large and convenient enough for laptap and printer.
