works well enough

Daniel Lanier Russo, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: If you're expecting fine quality you're looking in the wrong direction. If you want something light to keep in your back pocket or messenger bag that can print decent enough photos and don't care if the scaling and color quality is imperfect, this is great. It works just fine with my Nikon D90 and Android phones. Sometimes we keep travel journals and like to print quick shots while still on the trip.

Works like a charm

Joy Tengan, Amazon

  • Summary: What do you expect in a portable little printer? This was perfect for our needs. Didn't need to lug around a big color printer and extra color cartridges. Of course the tones were not as bright as an 8lbs printer but it did the job and everyone loved it. I will be using it for another party favor for christmas.

A cool gadget, expensive... but useful

olnikkormat, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this printer yesterday. I gotta say it's actually quite good... for what it is. Definitely it's superior to the Pogo printer in terms of quality... though it would be nice if the the 3x4 prints were also sticky backs. The color accuracy is actually quite reasonable. Unless you use very strong contrasting hues, then they tend to vibrate next to eachother. The images do not have a perfect polaroid feel... more it's like a dye sub system from 10 years ago.

A Learning Curve, but So Far, So Good

AmandaGal, Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: This printer does have a learning curve. I just got it today and it took me a bit of time to figure out how to work it. Printing directly from the camera is simple if your camera supports pictbridge. I have a Canon 7D and it does. It was just matter of hooking it up, pressing the print button and waiting. The photos from the camera printed pretty quickly (faster than an old Polaroid print took to turn colors).

Works with my iPhone 4s with a workaround

R. Nagell, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: I looked at several portable printers before I chose this one because it is the smallest printer that will produce satisfactory sized photos. The printer is about 4.5" x 3" x 1.25", or the size of a small book. Its not too heavy, but it does have a sizable charger (about 3.5" x 2" x1"). The POGO printer is smaller, but it is more for fun due to the small size of the photo stickers it prints. I travel and want to give instant prints on the fly as gifts.

It's not perfect, but it's worth $100

S. Kosloske, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: I was really torn between giving this 4 or 5 stars. While there are no real problems with the little printer, it's not "perfect", so I'm going to try to justify my 4 star rating. It works great. Install the battery and film pack, charge it up, and go. I've tested it via the GL10 application on my Mac, and by transferring a file over BlueTooth. They both work exactly as they should. Picture quality - now here's the issue I have.

Pleasantly surprised by the quality

Reala, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: The image quality of this printer is not great. However, the prints are much better than other Zink products and I have tried most of the other ones (Polaroid Pogo and the two made by LG - of the those the LG ones are much better than the original Polaroid branded Pogo - faster data transfer, superior print quality and less streaking). Other reviewer's have complained about the apps made for this product.

Not for windows phone

friends of Carlotta "F.O.C.", Amazon
6 February 2014
  • Summary: Great little printer, images of surprising quality, only a little adjustment of the software needed. It prints great via the cable from my computer, BUT, I had bought it to print Bluetooth from my phone, its a Lumia and as yet no apps for this. A bit disappointing, nothing about that in the description.

Very good, but not perfect

MacAvity, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: Then again, what is? The Polaroid GL10 is a great little printer because it outputs very acceptable prints, doesn't need any inks or toners to make it work and connects to host devices wirelessly via Bluetooth, albeit NOT to Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod products apparently. However, I understand that this is Apple's fault: NOT Polaroid's.
