The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

My work requires me to be constantly on the move. Whether it’s at a client’s work site executing a project or visiting my suppliers, I am constantly in my ute driving from place to place.

As a landscaper, it is very important I understand the needs of my clients and the aesthetics they want to achieve out of every project. It is imperative that I scope out the work correctly and give my team the right instructions to carry out the work.

The setup of the printer was very intuitive and I was able to get it up and running within 30 minutes. It was nice that the printer came with 2 ink cartridges which meant I was able to start printing instantly!

The colour touch screen is also a nice addition and I was able to use it to connect to my home wireless connection and mobile devices quickly.

I was also able to register the printer on hpconnected.com with ease and could print any images or document by emailing it directly to the printer’s unique email address. The HP All-in-One Printer Remote app made managing my print jobs a breeze. What’s great about this app was I could print/scan any images or documents directly from my phone even when the printer is not next to me!

My favourite feature of this printer is that it allows me to scan, print and copy all within the one device which is super convenient. Previous mobile printers that I had use only allowed me to print which meant I had to return to the office to scan or copy any documents I needed.

In my line of work I am constantly working on quotes and look boards for my clients. With this printer, I can create a sketch or blueprint on my iPad and print it via the app straight away.

Another great feature was even if I had left my printer in the ute and had to print a document, I could simply do it with my phone or tablet, click print, and by the time I got out to my ute, the document would be printed and ready to go!

The print speed is so quick it is almost equivalent to the printer I have at home, except with this one I can carry it around with me all the time! The 10 page document feeder is a nice touch as it meant I could print up to 10 pages without refilling the tray, saving me the hassle. The printer also has a quiet mode and I often forget that I have something printing when that is turned on!

It is also super handy to be able to charge this device in my ute and the charge time is so quick I never have to worry about it running out of power.

I would rate this printer a 5 out of 5 simply because it is the best mobile printer I have ever used and the print quality is excellent. What I love most is the multi-prong methods to print, be it via the app or email. It certainly does make for a great mobile printing experience.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
