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!
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)?
