For the best printers, you never have to look far for one that\u2019s all-in-one. However, they\u2019ll often come with features that\u2019s unnecessary for home printers. If you need an all-in-one printer that\u2019s compact, is quiet, and affordable\u2014we present to you the HP Tango X. It handles printing documents when you need them, though is exceptional when it comes to printing photos.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - HP Tango X\r\nThe HP Tango X is a strange all-in-one printer that marries smart home technology to printers, while keeping its design compact and affordable with an incredible ink subscription.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nPrint quality is unsurprisingly superb. This is HP, after all. While it does a great job printing documents and even has a nice 50 page paper tray, it really shines with photo printing; photo prints have never looked better. If you need a printer dedicated to photography, this Tango printer is where it\u2019s at\u2014especially when you toss in high quality photo paper and you\u2019re on a budget. With that said, borderless printing is limited to 5x7. That doesn\u2019t mean you can\u2019t print photos larger than that\u2014you absolutely can\u2014but they\u2019ll have borders.\r\n\r\nPrinting speed is around 11 pages for monochrome and 8 pages per minute for colored. For personal use, that\u2019s great, but for a business? Not so much. If that\u2019s what you\u2019re looking for, the Brother HL-L2300D is better for business.\r\nDesign\r\nYou might be wondering where the scanner and copier are. Excluding both has reduced the overall size of the HP Tango X by a significant amount, but has added extra steps to scanning and copying. So how does it get away with being an all-in-one printer? By making your smartphone (or tablet) the scanner and copier.\r\n\r\nBecause the HP Tango X is a smart printer, it can connect to your Wi Fi. You can then control your smart home printer through apps like Google Home, the HP Smart app, even Alexa. If you don\u2019t care for the lack of dedicated scanning and copying, check out the HP OfficeJet 5255 or the HP OfficeJet 3830.\r\nValue\r\nThe HP Tango X Wireless Printer didn\u2019t wow us with its performance in terms of print speeds, but that\u2019s only if you view it through the lens of a high-traffic environment. The HP Tango X is not meant for an office; this is personal use only. That\u2019s where its value is.\r\n\r\nIts value is further compounded when you throw in an HP Instant Ink subscription. You\u2019ll get ink cartridges sent to you when the printer\u2019s ink reaches a certain level. If you nab the highest subscription package (300 pages per month at $9.99\/monthly), you\u2019re spending about 3.5 cents for both monochrome and color pages, which also applies when you print photos. For such a high quality print job, 3.5 cents a page is one killer deal.\r\nHP Tango X Wrap Up\r\nWhen you wield the HP Tango X, you get in return a printer with an awesome ink subscription that can be controlled by your voice. It handles documents well, but photos even better\u2014provided you\u2019re okay with borderless printing being limited to 5x7, and scanning\/copying done by smart device. Its performance, we think, makes up for it.
