HP Sprocket Printer - Fun but Sad | Tech Review


hey hey hey!
having an Tech review from me is a little rare as i am definitely abit of a blur.com when it comes to tech and specification descriptions. so today's review will not be on the tech side to be honest! its more towards the results and how the HP Sprocket Printer's performance, that i got as a gift from my boyfriend! if you're reading this bbyy! thank you again for the lovely present! 


with that said, i was dead surprise, literally brought me to tears when i received it because apparently i received 2 of my dream gadgets on that week itself! which was this HP Sprocket and Fujifilm Instax from my sister! ever thankful and grateful for the love - they know me so well, and yet im still too poor and unwilling to buy my own! haha

so let's get down to business!

COSTS
the cost will probably burn for a lumsum purchase at RM470 @ discounted. but because the Zink papers costs just as expensive - it will be a constant RM35~38/20 sheets. which is quite costly, especially for the print performance you'll be getting.


CONVENIENCE
the size and weight is just nice like a pocket powerbank size fitted your palm. and doesn't weight heavy at all. so it's quite easy to bring around where you'd like your impromptu photos to be printed. parties or events are nice too!


SIMPLICITY
the simplicity on the app and how to use the Sprocket is quite straight forward. open up Bluetooth - Connect and Print via sprocket app! the settings in the apps are also quite simple to navigate. and simple to play around with editing and stickers and colourful frames. 

PERFORMANCE 
printed results was the biggest disappointment because i was expecting a better printed quality to be honest! the colour was quite off towards a yellowish hue but also not consistent because i'd be a different hue for the next print even though its the same picture and the noise was unbearable to my personal view. because i did not do much editing and stickers pin-ups on the first few prints. the plain results got me into despair that i actually thought it has something wrong or i did something wrong on the setup! basically i panicked when reality doesn't meet my expectation. 


FINAL VERDICT!

was it worth it? honestly, no. i felt a little bad cause it costed so much as a gift from my bf but it couldn't meet my photo printing expectations. lol but! on the other hand if you do not take the photos too seriously, its actually passes as a fun portable purikura print stickers that you'll be more willing to hand out to your friends as gifts! because if the quality was good. i'd be keeping them all to myself!

but overall, also because of the cost of the papers is expensive, which reduces the commitment to restock on the paper - it would be rare to be using this baby. I'd probably be printing my photos the old fashion way. and no more portable printers on my wishlist!

still appreciate the lovely gift. because the heart that counts! 
hope this will be helpful for others. but, i really wish they could improve on the performance and i'd bring it everywhere i go! hahaha


until next magical day,
wan

    1. haha glad it helps in your decision making. but its also pretty cute and good for friends sharing, if you don't really mind the photo quality because its a sticker back can cut and stick!

  2. I have been seeing these and the thought of getting one crossed my mind but I am glad for your honest review. Not to into the idea now. I wonder how often you have to change the ink... or how. It's so small. OH MY.

    1. no ink is needed dearr~ its the magical paper and the heat inside the sprocket that prints the image out. prettyyy cool actually and convenient but just the photo quality i wish it would be better! but overall quite handy for mini gatherings where you take selfies and print them out to give out

  3. In general all printers have the ability to print on standard paper, with letter and legal sizes. Most printers have personal input and output paper trays for paper handling facility. best cheap 3d printer
