BJC-85

The award-winning, portable BJC-85 Color Bubble Jet Printer gives you the power to print high-quality, black and color documents wherever you go. It features both a built-in USB and parallel port for easy connection to any compatible Mac or PC; fast IrDA (version 1.1) for wireless printing capability and a long-life battery (with optional battery pack). So exceptional, professional-quality desktop printing is no longer a luxury reserved for the office-bound.

The scanner option is the best thing about this printer. The print cost & quality are good, but the ability to use it as a portable scanner is terrific

I originally bought this from Office Depot in 1999 as a back up printer in my work. I started using it more and more and soon bought the scanner module which is like carrying a document copier in your briefcase. I was a mortgage broker for over 30 years and my business cards said, "Have laptop, will travel", which I did a lot of. It is easy on ink (most of my printing is BW) and I have never had a minutes problem with the BJ85. I would recommend it to anyone and the price wasn't (at the time) bad.

Pros: reliable, Compact Design, Easy Setup, durable, Lightweight/Portable, easy to use
Cons: Slow Print Speed
I bought this printer a good few years ago. I travel abroad a lot and it's ideal, being not much bigger than a cigarette carton. It prints (in colour & black /white) and the optional extra scan cartridge is really useful too.
Yes, it's on the slow side, but that's a small price to pay for a neat printer you can pack in your suitcase.
I don't know if you can still buy them new, but certainly recommend them.
It has a printer driver for Mac, but not sure if there's a Mac driver for the scanner.

Cons: Slow Print Speed
Since my dad gave me the printer it has worked great-have been using it for awhile now- I want to say 7 or 8 years been a fine product. It has been used the way it has been designed for. No system issues nothing like that. Running windows XP sp2.
