Summary: It does not come with a USB cable this is not a con for the just wanted to point it out. This does not have a battery some reviews are calling this negatives but I don't feel that is accurate as that is not only what this product is, but those are in a different price point.
Pros: + Fantastic for travel size +Uses regular size printer paper., down to 4x6 photo paper +Good price for a portable printer
Cons: -Power cord is bulky -Ink cartridges are small
confusing configuration; bad start-up directions, Canon customer service does not know job

Summary: I returned this product after spending an hour with a snotty customer service rep. who could not understand why I could ot read the incomplete, scattered and confusing start-up diagrams. All this start-up guide did was set up the printer. It did not show how to set it up with an ipad. Also, sales told me it could not be used with a laptop, only with ipads and smartphones. This is not true. Nothing is worth this aggravation.
Excerpt: I purchased this as a gift for a granddaughter for use at college. She says it works fine and has had no issues with it. I was a little cautious based on the various reviews, but so far, so good.
Excerpt: I do a lot of travelling for business and have to have a printer with me.Printer is lightweight and prints nicely for my needs and with the bluetooth adapter makes it a wireless printer.liked my original so much that when it broke down after many years of use and travel, I looked to replace it with the same model.
Excerpt: OK, so I got this to make my life easier, but maybe I'm just not getting it. I need this for out in the field; so that I can print out letters, etc from my mobile phone. So far, I haven't even gotten to use it one time!! While the instructions seem simple in theory; in practice, I haven't been able to make a go of it. I'm disappointed, but I'll be taking it to the store to see if they can help me sort it out. I think it's just me.
Conclusion: I am a Professional RV Transporter and am required to complete driving logs every day. I purchased the IP100 last year and it has worked great. It is initially a little slow when turning it on but once you get past that it prints great.I have mine mounted in my RAM mounted printer holder. I love the portability of this printer as i can remove it when I stay in a motel. I also purchased the Bluetooth device and the external battery.
Excerpt: Purchased this printer at Staples. It was so easy to set up. Loaded its software on my computers and it worked fine. Only downside is that it is not wireless but I communicate with it from other computers via the one it is connected to. Printer is right size to fit most anywhere. Color print quality is fantastic. Printed a 8" x 10" photo of our Marine Grandson from a photo on our digital camera and the result was just as good as you would get from a camera shop.
