LG intros slimmer version of their Pocket Photo Printer

Over at the recently-concluded CES, LG introduced the next generation of its Pocket Photo Printer. This portable printer allows you to print photos from your smartphone wirelessly without the use of any ink cartridge. The LG Pocket Photo 2.0 is very similar to the first Pocket Photo which we reviewed before in terms of functionality. The main difference is that it’s now slimmer with a rounded edge where the paper comes out, and comes in more colors. It also has a longer battery life now allowing you to print 30 photos in one charge. Through the use of a downloadable app (iOS, Android, WP8), you can edit your photos before sending it to the printer via Bluetooth of NFC. It uses ZINK or “zero ink” paper which allows printing without any ink cartridge. All the colors are on the paper and the device will heat it to bring out the correct color per pixel. Really handy and fun to use during parties. It’s not a must-have device but with Filipinos being rather fond of taking selfies or taking Instax photos, it’s really a nice-to-have device for the smartphone user. We’ll keep you posted on local availability and pricing. Related posts: No related...

Canon Pixma MX927 All-In-One Wireless Printer Review

Dec 21, 13 Canon Pixma MX927 All-In-One Wireless Printer Review

Posted by in Featured, Imaging & Photography, Reviews

Canon is a familiar printer brand and we are lucky to have a Canon printer with us to test. The Pixma MX927 is an all-in-one printer that supports wireless printing for small to medium sized offices and it will be interesting to see how it performs printing photos. The Pixma MX927 has a slew of neat features and I’d like to mention those before tackling the print quality for photos, starting with the all-in-one design. The Pixma MX927 can print, scan, copy, and fax documents – these vital and common tasks in the office are handled by the Pixma MX927 with ease. Dedicated buttons are available to select the different modes of the printer and a 3” LCD displays the different settings for each mode. You might think that a multi-function device like this would have a lot of buttons, but Canon cleverly designed a keypad that changes as we switch between modes. The variable keypad is back lit and the values are not printed on the button. This makes the Pixma MX927 look uncluttered and easy to use because we are only presented with buttons that we need for a specific mode.   We can actually use the Pixma MX927 without a computer. We just have to refer to the LCD screen to manage out tasks. We can plug a USB flash drive or set it up to access the internet to download and print files without using a PC.    The Pixma MX927 is also WiFi ready and I did not have any troubles setting it up with my home network. We can set up Pixma Could Link to print files from popular cloud solutions like Dropbox or Evernote, or photos from Picasa, Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter. The Pixma MX927 is also Google Cloud Print ready so we can print files from our Google accounts. We can also setup an email address for the Pixma MX927 – any attachment sent to the email with be printed right away. Compatible with Apple’s AirPrint,...
