Rated 3 out of 5Â by landman Slow scanner, no printing from iPhone or iPad
In theory this device is a perfect solution for the mobile user like myself. I don't want to lug around a somewhat small printer and also a portable scanner everywhere I go, so this should be great - but it's not. The setup was pretty straight forward and not difficult, until I got to the wireless bluetooth portion. I wasn't able to see the device from my iPad or iPhone like I could with my home HP printer. After researching on the HP service site I find out this printer does not support iDevices. I thought to myself crummy, but not a deal breaker as I realistically have only printed a few times from an iDevice to my other printers. I will still need to get my other computer to test if the bluetooth even works. On to the scanner - It is mind boggling slow - I'm not sure what other portable scanners are like, but I do have a portable Neat scanner and the HP does the job at a quarter of the speed. I did finally figure out how to make a multipage PDF, so that was a relief. The Printer Is Super Expensive - Even When On Sale. My high hopes are a bit let down. The printer portion works great and is speedy, other than the wireless printing. Having battery operated printing at the speed this printer goes is great, but In my honest opinion you should not spend the money on this one - get the cheaper Officejet Mobile 100 and just scan using genius scan or other scanning app on your iPhone - save the money.
I really wanted to give this two stars, but thought that to be a little too critical of the printer - It does print very well and if the bluetooth works on my other laptop and my recently purchased Surface tablet then it is pretty good for a mobile printer. I just think it is horribly overpriced for the super slow scanning and the no iDevice functionality.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Groot Room for Improvement
Based on the feedback others have given, there is obviously room for improvement with the HP Officejet 150. Besides the setup & installation issues, it seems to me that this product would be the ideal candidate for the HP ePrint solution. Some are using the Photosmart 5520 as a mobile printer. Seems like that's the ideal product that should be in this chassis.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RCCC Good Product!
I was looking for a printer/scanner that would do a decent job but not take up a lot of space and I could pack away eaisly. I have moved several times and lugging a full size printer around frankly gets old. I was also looking for one that would travel if need be. I do not do a lot of printing and certainly would not call myself a "power" user. I have an ocassional need to print and copy. I could have gotton a printer/scanner for a lot less $ but then I was back to something the size of a small orange crate that certainly would not fit in a suitcase or a drawer even. I am running Windows Vista.. The set up disk was designed for that and it set up quickly. I used a USB cable and had no issues. Wi-Fi would be nice but for my use I did not consider that a significant draw backand since the printer is small with only a 50 sheet capacity it is not exactlly a "remote" printing machine nor was it designed to be. After looking around I could not find another printer of this small a size that would both print AND scan. The ones I did find were a bit smaller but had no scanning ability and after adding a battery (which is included with this one) were more expensive. If you are looking for a small size printer/scanner that can travel if need be or pack away eaisly for storage this can't be beat. Print quality is solid in both color and BW. Scanning is easy and straight forward. Would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by swatch1 Excellent product
Will be spending 3 mos. away from home this summer in a rental house. Need a printer that is small and light and does the job. Set it up last week with the MacBook Air I am taking with me. Set-up was easy, including the Bluettooth pairing. Print quality is excellent. Speed is good for a mobile printer. Design is a winner. Nice work, HP!

I'm finding this psc device to be highly annoying. Can't scan more than a couple pages without stopping and complaining that there's a paper jam (which there isn't) or instructing me to "Close the scanner glass door", which when closed means nothing - the message is repeated. I'm not stupid; the device parts are easy to identify, but simply scanning a few pages into one pdf could take hours. Did HP put enough time and money into testing? I paid $400 for this thing. Definitely thinking of returning it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DleeNYC Good machine but not for what it was sold.
It is a fairly good printer but it is not asa portable as you might think.. It is heavy, thick and akward (doesn't fit in a computer bag well [even a coputer bag that has room for a portable printer] , and is very heavy to lug around. Canon sells one that is more portable. The printer, scanner and copier itself is not bad, but again, if I was not going to use it as a portable printer, then I would get a machine that was more capable. If this machine was more portable then it would be fine. But as a home printer it is not good and as a portable printer, it is not good. I am disappointed with this purchase :(
