My New Favorite Office Accessory: The HP Amp 100 Printer

I received this product for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Back in June when I attended the BlogHer conference in Orlando, I had the opportunity to pop into a special event with HP to see what kinds of products were in the works for the second half of 2017. There were SO many cool products, but the one that was most exciting to me? The HP Amp 100 printer!

I’ve had my current printer since college and while it was great for many years, the time has come for a new one, so I was pretty excited when HP sent me their latest + greatest! Although I’ve only had it for a couple weeks, this is hands down the best printer I’ve ever owned!

HP Amp 100

The HP Amp is small, taking up half the space my previous printer did, AND has bluetooth capabilities. This means that not only can you do things like print and scan from your phone, but you can also play music and chat on the phone. Yes, THROUGH the printer. I have music playing 24/7, so this is a HUGE win for me!

There’s also a USB port on the back of the printer, so if you want to charge your phone/tablet, while you’re working away, you’re covered. My laptop doesn’t have a standard USB port, so this is incredibly helpful for me so I don’t have to search for my USB-C cord, which lets me plug my charger in. It’s a complicated tech world we live in, my friends.

HP also has an app that lets you print from your phone. But even better, lets you “scan” things (using your smartphone’s camera) and save or send to email as a jpeg or PDF. For my time-crunched on-the-go people, this feature is pretty life-changing!

This is an especially awesome printer to have for those off to college. I know I would’ve loved this in my dorm room! But even years out of college, I love it in my home office! The HP team really hit the nail on the head with this printer!

If you’re just as excited as I am about the new HP Amp, you can pick it up at Walmart stores (or online) for $129. You’ll even get a $10 Google Play gift card so you can download some new tunes to jam to with the fancy speaker system!

What features are most important to you in a printer (besides the printing part)?

    This printer sounds amazing! I love mine, but I’ve had it for 7 years! Maybe I need to upgrade!

    • September 3, 2017 / 4:24 PM

      That’s about the age mine was too, so I was very happy about this upgrade! You might want to get one too!

    • September 3, 2017 / 4:24 PM

      They do! HP has always been my fave printer brand.

  2. August 28, 2017 / 5:16 PM

    Sounds cool! I really like how much smaller it is than most printers you see.

    • September 12, 2017 / 8:03 PM

      For sure! It’s not a big clunky one at all!

    WOW! You can scan things from your phone?? Ithink I am starting my Christmas list now.

    • September 12, 2017 / 8:03 PM

      Amazing, right?! AND you can send as a PDF. Seriously my new fave thing!

    That’s amazing that you can do all of that from your phone!!

    • September 3, 2017 / 4:24 PM

      I know, right?! Can’t wait to see what comes out in the next 5-10 years!

    A good printer works wonders and makes all the difference!

    • September 12, 2017 / 8:02 PM

      Exactly! And you can’t beat all of the great features this one has!

    I so wish I had this one in college!! Honestly my printer was the best thing I bought for my dorm. I never had to walk across campus at 1am just to print 1 paper. Also if you have a printer in your dorm, you’ll quickly make tons of friends ;)

      I couldn’t agree more, Grace! It saved SO much time having a printer in college. I would’ve loved this one then too!!

    • September 4, 2017 / 1:07 PM

      I know right?! All the cool things always come out later in life, haha.

    My HP printer is a lifesaver every day at the office – no running back and forth the printer when I just need to print one page ;) I’ve been looking for a small printer to use when I work from home in the evenings, and this one looks perfect for that.

    It’s so cool that you can play music and chat on the phone using this printer!! If I had a home office this would be a must-have!

    • September 14, 2017 / 10:14 AM

      Absolutely! My home office is my new fave place to be :)

    oh that sounds interesting!! going to save this for next time I get a printer xD

    • September 4, 2017 / 1:07 PM

      It’s definitely a great one!

  11. August 29, 2017 / 8:24 PM

    My printer has been making some seriously scary noises lately…I might need to get one of these!

    • September 4, 2017 / 1:07 PM

      Ah that’s never good! I’m really digging this one – I think you’d enjoy it too!

  12. August 29, 2017 / 8:33 PM

    Wow! This would be a game changer for college students!

    • September 4, 2017 / 7:56 PM

      For sure! I’m loving it even way after college life!

  13. August 29, 2017 / 9:11 PM

    Game changer!!! I struggle to find a printer that is compatible with my Mac and phone, wirelessly.

    • September 11, 2017 / 8:48 PM

      It really is! I’m so impressed with this printer!

    I have a HP printer that is a similar size that I bought for my dorm last year. Oh how I wish this printer was around then (or that I knew about it if it was). A speaker in a printer… Genius! Such a cool product.

    • September 17, 2017 / 9:46 PM

      Right?! I wish this was around when I was in college! Better late than never though!

    Wait I am totally loving that you can print from your phone! I can’t count the number of times I have wanted/needed to be able to do this and my printer didn’t have the option. This sounds fab!

      Total game changer, right?! I love this printer!

  17. August 30, 2017 / 5:43 AM

    I don’t even have a printer anymore but I think it’s time I get one :)
    Thanks for sharing!

    • September 12, 2017 / 8:02 PM

      You should! There’s always a time when a need for one comes up and it can be frustrating to not have one available!

  18. August 30, 2017 / 7:04 AM

    Ooh bluetooth compatible, awesome! I need a good printer

    • September 17, 2017 / 9:47 PM

      Yes! Loving all the cool new features – this printer does so much more than basic printing!

    This sounds so cool and super affordable! How much is the ink for it, though? I often find that even if the printer isn’t expensive the ink is

    • September 20, 2017 / 8:52 PM

      You know, I’m not sure. I feel like ink usually lasts a while for me so I don’t need to buy new cartridges often!

  20. August 30, 2017 / 12:25 PM

    This is so cool – I’ve never heard of a printer that plays music from your phone! I need a good printer as I’m always printing things so I’m def checking this one out. I just hope the ink is not too expensive!

    • September 21, 2017 / 8:00 AM

      It’s an awesome one! I haven’t had to refill the ink yet so I’m not sure about pricing but I know HP has some plans you can sign up for to save if you print a lot + need ink often!

    This is such a cool little printer! Perfect for dorms! :)

    • September 20, 2017 / 8:51 PM

      Isn’t it?! I love it in my office too!

  22. August 30, 2017 / 2:40 PM

    I have an HP printer and LOVE it!

    • September 17, 2017 / 9:47 PM

      HP is my favorite printer brand too!

  23. August 30, 2017 / 11:38 PM

    Perfect sized printer for small office spaces or dorms- awesome!

    • September 17, 2017 / 9:47 PM

      Exactly! I love this one!

  24. August 31, 2017 / 1:44 AM

    The app for printing from your phone is something I need! Every printer should have it. Love it!

    • September 21, 2017 / 7:59 AM

      Totally agree! Especially being able to export as PDFs!

    • September 21, 2017 / 7:59 AM

      Same! Love that they’re taking into account all of the must-haves of millennials!

    I am SO obsessed w/ the fact that you can print from your phone to the printer – allllll the possibilities! x, nicole // http://www.nicoleeigh.com

    • September 11, 2017 / 8:48 PM

      So great, right?! Love that I don’t have to boot up my computer if I’m in a hurry to print something either!

    • September 12, 2017 / 8:02 PM

      It’s such a game changer! I feel like any time I have to print something I’m in a hurry and you’re so right – having to load up the computer is such a hassle!

  27. August 31, 2017 / 6:15 PM

    It has a speaker?! This would be the perfect printer for anyone, but especially anyone in an apartment, dorm, or other small living space.

    • September 12, 2017 / 8:01 PM

      Yes! I so wish I had it in college but happy to at least have it in my home office now!

      So true! This one really hits all the must-haves these days!

  29. September 3, 2017 / 9:21 PM

    I don’t own a printer anymore – but I love that you can print straight from your phone on this one! That is an awesome feature.

      It definitely is! I always seem to need to print something when I’m in a hurry so it’s great to just hit print from my phone!

      So cool, right?! I do a lot of printing at the office too, but every once in a while I do still need to print at home! I love having this one to charge my phone and play tunes!
