When it comes to wireless printing from mobile devices there’s nothing which makes the process easier than ePrint, however there are certain specific requirements which you must meet. Interested? Let me explain below.
When it comes to wireless printing ePrint allows you to send emails to printers which are assigned their own email address and print of the information contained within the emails (almost always attachments). This has numerous applications as I’m sure you can imagine, but this post is to focus on their specific Printers. However, if you would like to learn more about Eprint in a concise and accurate manner I would suggest visiting my HP ePrint post. If you don’t know much about ePrint yet then I’d strongly suggest it because it makes a confusing topic clear.
There are a number of printers to choose from which are ePrint enabled, nineteen to be precise. Also what’s surprising is they’re very affordable the cheapest starts at 100 dollars but their website is currently offering a discount lowering the price to just 70 dollars which is pretty incredible considering the product you’re getting. What’s more is you’re not just getting a really inferior product you’re still getting a pretty good printer. Is it as good as the others? Not for 70 dollars, but it’s not far of at all and it’s definitely worth taking a look at. If you’re not interested in purchasing some a cheaper product there are of course plenty more expensive and functional devices which are home to the standards we’ve grown to expect from HP.
Remember that using ePrint means you have to go through HP – you can’t try and find cheaper competitors printers nor can you install the required software and email address onto an existing printer. It has to be done through HP. This is really a great marketing technique by them, their printers are both very useful and most importantly affordable. All you need is one of their printers and although they’re a little more expensive than regular printers of similar quality and specifications by other companies they’re hardly outrageously priced, and if they’re as useful in our lives as I very well think they might be their budget prices combined with their versatility should have a fair chance in capturing a significant market audience.
If you’re looking for a list of ePrint printers then the first place to visit is their website. Although it’s slow to load their prices are very affordable and you have the added bonus of extra HP support. It also offers the most reliable and up to date information and just as importantly there are hundreds of reviews and star ratings for each of the printers so you’ll get a really good feel for what it is you’re actually buying. One annoyance is of course their lack of HP portable printer models which can use ePrint but it seems that for now they want to keep things stationary.
I have been asked if there are any ePrint compatible printers through any kind of software/hack and the answer is as of this moment no. Unfortunately due to the total HP software dominance of the product itself I think it’s highly unlikely that any such occurrence will take place.
