Conclusion: While it met our printing expectations, a printer in this price range needs to do a lot more than lay ink to paper. A premium multi-function printer like the Hero 9.1 aspires to more. Wireless connectivity, built-in photo editing, and perks like a smartphone app that cut out the need for a PC altogether. When those things don’t work, or lag, or consistently cause you to look for workarounds, they aren’t worth it—especially when they are coming from a $250 device.
Pros: Easy-to-navigate touchscreen interface, Well-placed USB port and SD card slot
Cons: Extremely noisy, Somewhat unresponsive touchscreen, Glitchy; multitude of setup and connectivity errors, Smartphone app wouldn’t consistently connect
