Today I’m reviewing the newly-released HP OfficeJet 200 Mobile Printer. Now this review unit was sent to us by HP, for review. Most of the products I review, are devices that I’ve bought and tested. However, when a manufacturer sends us an item, I’ll always let you know. So let’s go ahead and take a closer look at the device. As it’s name suggests, the OfficeJet 200 is an extremely compact, printer that’s meant to be taken with you wherever you go. The printer measures about 14 inches wide by 7 inches deep by about 3 inches tall. And just to show you how compact it is, I have it next to the HP envy 4520 which is a pretty compact entry-level printer. In fact, it’s so compact that it’ll even fit into a regular laptop bag like this one and doesn’t add all that much heft, even with the laptop and accessories, already inside the bag. This is really useful for folks who travel a lot. The 200 shares it’s industrial design with most modern HP printers and is made of black plastic with a sleek, understated design. To keep the printer compact, the 200 does away with a standard closed paper tray and replaces it with a flip open lid which doubles up as open paper tray. The tray also has a paper guide which allows you to load anything from letter size to envelopes and even 4 x 6 photo paper. The tray can hold a maximum of 50 sheets. Opening the lid also reveals the Officejet’s control interface. It has a power button with power and battery charge indicator lights next to it, on the left hand side. In the center, it has a 2 inch black and black and white screen with a familiar HP menu layout and control buttons on both sides of the screen. Now the quality of the screen is actually pretty good and and it does tilt for better viewing angles. However, what disappointed me was that for a printer that costs over $250 dollars, HP had decided to not provide it with a touchscreen. And touchscreens are becoming standard even in entry-level printers, so it’s really sad HP didn’t give this device a touchscreen. Now this is a bit annoying when toggling through menu’s or setting the printer up. Not a huge issue, but for the price, this device definitely deserves a touchscreen
The officejet uses two standard 62 series ink cartridges that live behind this flip panel on the front. Now to boost your print capacity, you can always opt for the 62XL cartridges which will almost triple your print yield. And I’ll leave links to those below.
What truly makes it mobile is the lithium ion battery pack that lives behind this panel on the back. The battery is removable and you can always buy spares, so you don’t run out of juice when you’re on the go. The panel also has a pushbutton charge indicator on the back which shows you how much charge you have left. The main screen also displays battery charge percentage on the top right hand corner. The battery can be charged using the provided ac cable which charges the battery up from empty in about 2.5 hours. You can also plug into AC power when your battery runs low and use it like a regular desktop printer. The battery also charges in the background, when you power it with AC. Now if you don’t want to carry around your ac cord, you can always charge the printer from a usb charger or usb port on something like a car charger. The charger must be capable of providing 1A of charge and plugs into the usb port on the rear. You will have to shut the printer down, to charge it this way. I’ll leave links to a few car chargers and usb wall chargers that’ll work with this printer, in the description below. The printer also works with anything from 110 to 240VAC, so you can use it anywhere in the world.

Excelente impresora portátil. Como antiguo usuario de las marcas de primera línea con fines profesionales debo decir que mis experiencias con este producto son más que óptimas. Supera ampliamente a sus predecesoras incluyendo marcas de la competencia. Su peso es justo; sumado a que su ergonomía permite usarla como base de apoyo. La duración de la batería es más que generosa y de carga rápida. Una sola carga en el día permite un uso profesional de toda una jornada. La impresión es de calidad como nos tiene acostumbrado HP. Me encanta que detecte automáticamente el tamaño del papel empleado soportando distintos grosores incluso los más duros. Su portabilidad es ampliamente cómoda. El panel táctil tiene todo lo necesario con funciones simples y rápidas. La conectividad a los demás soportes es variada y plenamente efectiva. Además de las opciones con WiFi del lugar o bien con uno propio; se adapta perfectamente al compartir internet del celular. La Tecnología HP Direct es impecable. Tiene un diseño elegante, sobrio, cómodo y sumamente eficiente. Llevo un tiempo largo probándola luego de haber experimentado casi todos los modelos anteriores de HP y de otras marcas llegando a la conclusión que aquí realmente se dio un salto de calidad. Los felicito por el post. Y lo principal a tener en cuenta: Fomentar estas nuevas tecnologías fomentan el uso sustentable ya que no es necesario utilizar artefactos permanentemente enchufados lo que incrementa el costo de electricidad, evitando además ese uso abusivo de cables y espacios en la oficina. Por último, vale aclarar que aporta una dosis de estilo cuando el cliente la observa en funcionamiento. Gracias HP por hacerme partícipe de cada uno de sus modelos a los fines de evaluar sus aptitudes.

Great review…. Can this printer print through usb to my android? Also, how many pages printed on a full battery life?

Gym Eagle says:

Great review. Very useful. Can I charge this printer with my MacBook air? I bought the cable provided above, but it is not charging. Can we use the printer like a phone (you connect the usb cable to a computer, then it charges)?

gedgetips says:

Good detailed review. I would like to know if this printer is at all sensitive to aftermarket cartridges and if it has any sort of “chip” on the ink cart which prevents them from being refilled. It would also be good to know just how many 4X6 top quality photos this can produce with a 62XL color cart. Some printers drink ink and will drain the color even when not using color very much. Does this printer keep using cleaning cycles on its own to drain its ink, or would a person using this for printing a few pages a day over a few months get about the same number of copies per set of new carts as a person using it for 100+ pages a day? Some printers are major ink drinkers regardless of how much printing one does, just do their frequent “cleaning” routines, but this one doesn’t SEEM to do this but I would like to know more about this before spending the considerable money this printer costs.

Shelia G says:

Derek O'Brian says:

No CISS for these portable printers. I won’t buy any of them. … – Cartridges cost a fortune !!!

James Harp says:

Excellent Review of the new HP OfficeJet 200 mobile printer.  I just received my new printer, and this review contains several useful tips and engenders confidence that it is the right choice for mobile printing while traveling on the go.  Thank you …
