Advantages and Disadvantages of HP Officejet 470B



Quite a nice piece of machine to have.

One of the advantages is its small and portable. You can use it anywhere, be it at home or office or even somewhere where there is no power. This is achieved through an 11-volt 2300mAh battery that can produce 480 pages off one charge.

It also can be added optional WiFi or Bluetooth modules to use with phones, laptops without using cables. It uses HP’s new Vivera inks thus producing high quality results. The ink is cheaper too with 20$ for 440 black and white pages and 37$ for 600 pages in color.

There are disadvantages too, one being speed. It can only manage 3.7 PPM in both black and white and color. Its expensive to run too and unreliable since it cannot do bulk jobs.

If its an office equipment, I would not advice you to purchase it.
