Reason to buy HP tango smart wireless printer

  • Ultra connected – The HP Tango is fully networked, and you can do everything from your phone: print, scan, photocopy, customize the printer and its functions as well as check ink levels.
  • Beautiful photo-quality – In addition to offering the possibility of printing on photo paper, the renderings are of excellent quality.
  • Space-saving – The dimensions of 37.7 x 20.6 x 9.1 cm and the weight of 3 kg make the printer really compact or even transportable.

Reason to avoid

  • Manual double-sided, Unfortunately, the printing is not done on both sides automatically.
  • Copy scan only to phone – Since the printer is ultra-connected, it is impossible to scan or photocopy directly from the printer. However, if you want to photocopy or scan, you can take a photo of the page and then photocopy/scan it through your HP Smart app.
