Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer

PC Magazine
19 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The Polaroid Grey Label GL10 Instant Mobile Printer delivers far better-looking photos than Polaroid's first-generation ZINK printer—and larger photos, too.
  • Pros: Easy setup. Snapshot quality-photos. Prints from PictBridge cameras, computers, and Bluetooth connections.
  • Cons: Photos are only 3- by 4-inches. Printing from a phone using Bluetooth is a bit slow.

  • Conclusion: Whether you like the Polaroid GL10 depends almost entirely on just how portable you need your printer to be. If you need the smallest device possible, while still printing out decent sized snaps, it's worth a look. If you can opt for something slightly larger, however, you'll get better quality from an inkjet printer.
  • Pros: The Polaroid GL10 is a portable printer that works without the need for ink. It's almost small enough to fit in your pocket, so you really can take it everywhere you go. The Polaroid GL10 prints photographs measuring 4 x 3 inches. It uses zink (zero-ink) technology, so there's no need to buy ink cartridges – all you need to pay for is paper, with packs of compatible sheets working out at 50p per print. There's a lithium ion battery in the Polaroid GL10, and it offers ...
  • Cons: Although photograh quality is better than older printers, it still falls short of regular inkjet options, lacking the brighter and more detailed tones. There's also no app available from Apple, so iPhone users won't be able to print directly from their handsets.

Review: Polaroid GL10 Instant Photo Printer

CrunchGear
6 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Ultimately the product is about printing photographs, and it simply doesn’t do that very well. I’m a little apprehensive now regarding the upcoming camera. If the quality is the same, then it’s not going to be worth buying no matter how cool it looks. If you want a fun, cool way to make instant pictures, there are a few cameras like the Lomo Diana F+ I reviewed last year that use Fujifilm Instax film, which ends up costing a little more but is much more fun to use.
  • Pros: Handsome, fairly compact design, Negligible setup, Photos really do print more or less instantly
  • Cons: Prints have smeary, desaturated color and poor resolution, Around a dollar per shot means it ain’t cheap either

Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer Review

LAPTOP Magazine
3 August 2011
  • Summary: Offering the ability to print Gaga-fied images from your smartphone, printer, and digital camera, the Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer ($169) makes a great party gadget. The fun borders and effects options will provide you with some cute snapshots, and the GL10's portability and ease of use means the printer can go anywhere with you. Still, the pricey ZINK paper didn't deliver the most accurate colors, and you don't get iOS support.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Fun prints and designs, Easy to start printing from compatible smartphone
  • Cons: No iPhone support, Some inaccurate colors on Zink paper

Polaroid GL10 mini printer

MacWorld
7 December 2011
  • Conclusion: If all you want to do is print photos the GL10 is a reasonable option. The printing quality is good and fast. We thought colours looked a little washed out, but as a printer you can comfortably keep in your bag the GL10 is a pretty impressive unit.
  • Pros: Ultra-small; extremely portable; Bluetooth; rechargeable battery
  • Cons: Ok print quality
