Product Review: Polaroid PoGo Instant Mobile Printer

This is part 2 of my Technology series. (Read the first part of the series on my Flip Video Camcorder Review here.)

The picture shown here is the Polaroid PoGo Instant Mobile Printer. It is very small; it measures about 5"x3"x1" and weighs half a pound. It does exactly what the name says- prints colored pictures instantly on-the-go. Its portability makes it very convenient to bring with you when you are traveling and you want to print some pictures for your friends of reunions, weddings, etc.

Size and Usability- The pictures that print out with this is very small, 2 x 3 inches, but also makes it VERY CUTE for scrap booking or to put in your wallet. The photo paper used for this printer also has a sticky peel back to decorate your planner, wall or wherever you want to place it.

Quality of Pictures- I would have to say that the quality of the colors that gets printed on the pictures is just average. The colors are not bright and as clear as you would expect from normal colored photos. However, even though the colors are a bit muted, the faces are still recognizable and you get the overall gist of the picture. I am not disappointed because I know this printer is just for fun! These are not meant to showcase your photography skills but rather for the convenience of printing on the go and keeping a wallet sized picture with you.

ZINK technology, meaning it uses Zero Ink, is pretty awesome. This means that you need special ZINK photo paper though and the price of this can change. I saw an incredible deal of 30 sheets for $9.99 on Amazon. I have seen it before where it $9.99 is for the cost of 10 sheets or something like that. Highway robbery! Currently costs about $27.99 for a pack of 30.. so the price definitely fluctuates.

Cost- At Amazon, it costs $49.99 but the price also varies depending on the retailer. One seller is currently selling this for $189, which is ridiculously overpriced, since Polaroid Consumer Electronics is selling this only for $50. Get the better deal and make sure you don't pay more than $50.
