Good but quirky
I bought this printer because I need to print on the go, sometimes with little access to system printers. I researched this type of printer thoroughly and this was a good choice. I also bought the bluetooth adapter (overpriced) and battery. When this printer works, it is awesome. When it decides not to work it is a great doorstop. The bluetooth does not give you error messages which would be helpful. Battery works well. Overall, I am satisfied.

For most of us we're using a lot less paper than we use to, as such we don't need the big bulky or desktop hogging printers that are still on the market today. This printer works perfectly and I consider it to be my sidekick printer. I does't sit on my desktop. After giving up on my tower computer and going to a laptop I was left with open cabinet space. I simply bought some slide out (flat) drawers and placed my iP100 on it. I shut the cabinet door and it's out of sight. When I need to print something I open the cabinet door, pull out the drawer and print.
My company laptop is locked down & I didn't want to fool with IT on printer drivers so I purchased the Blu-Tooth option. Now I can print from my Macbook via a USB cable and my company Windows laptop via Blu-Tooth. Works like a champ.

Great printer that is perfect for the traveler
I primarily use this printer when I travel on business. It has held up well for the past three years and if it ever goes down I will buy another one. The quality of the prints are outstanding, both black/white and color. I would put this printer up against the best photo printers on the market. Considering the size of the printer and ink cartridges, I consider how long the ink lasts to be outstanding. A few things I like about the ink cartridges are you can use them until they run out, even though the printer tell you its time to change the cartridge(s) (I despise ink jet cartridges that force you to change them out prior to their actual life cycle); they are compact and can be easily transported when you are traveling; and they are outstanding quality meaning the prints always come out good. I also have the rechargeable battery, which comes in handy if you loose power or don't have access to an outlet. You international travelers can identify with this. One other thing that has impressed me is it is a plug and play printer, meaning the drivers are uploaded to your computer once you plug in the USB cord (with your permission of course). This has come in handy when my other business colleagues needed to use it. The print speed is slow, but this should be expected with an ink jet that is this small.
