Review: Printstick PS910 Mobile Printer from PlanOn
Okay, so the Printstick PS910 from PlanOn is a pretty interesting device. While not a photo printer by any means, we thought it was worth checking out since we are a little fascinated by mobile printing. Printstick only supports PC and Blackberry smartphones, so MAC and iPhone folks are out of luck here.
The point of this device is to allow you to print on the go--more for business travelers than personal use. So you're stuck in an airport and need a document right away--an email, a proposal, directions, concert tickets, the latest photo of your new puppy, etc. This is especially ideal if you rely on your Blackberry on the road--that screen is tiny when it comes to reading a PDF or other documents!
Quality is good for the purpose, but think of it like a fax output--grayscale only and plenty of dots. This is printing for the here and now, not to archive or put in albums. The paper straightens nicely after printing (some roll paper remains incessantly curly) and it prints about a page per minute. The sound of the Printstick is a little odd. Imagine a half dozen 6-inch high horses galloping across your desk in stilettos. It's more a humorous noise than anything, so don't worry about it. Comes with a carrying case, battery, AC adapter/charger, retractable USB cable and one paper cartridge (20 pages). There's also a user guide and software CD. You connect to your laptop of Blackberry via Bluetooth or USB 2.0. Streamlined padded case makes it easy to stow in a briefcase or laptop bag and use on your lap. As always Amazon has the best price--Printstick PS910 for $285and PlanOn PS 901 Paper Refills for $21.
