HP Tango X Series Review - Free Download Driver
It's designed to work primarily using the HP Smart program using an iOS or Android apparatus, focusing on access to files and photos stored at the cloud. Tango X is exceptional in its capacity to scan and copy out of a photo that's taken using a smartphone. This idea may thrill smartphone users, but enthusiasm for the supposed convenience is likely to be dampened by the intelligent app's inaccurate cropping along with the Tango X's disappointing copy quality.


A added linen cover (available in gray or indigo) folds over the printer to make it resemble a very small piece of furniture (perhaps a foundation for a small statue). When closed up, the printer measures roughly 15 inches broad by 9.7 inches deep and is only 3.5 inches tall. The printer profits a couple of inches in depth when you lift the vertical input tray and requires about 11 inches of clearance. The Tango X weighs just 7.5 pounds, so it's easy to transfer it to another area.

The HP Tango X includes an output tray, which helps to keep it compact. After you fold the cap to reveal the printer, then you'll notice that your prints depart from a slot and property on the cover facing the printer, which means you'll need to set the printer back enough on a desk to support the cap flap.

Because the Tango X includes a screen and traditional control panel, you will need a pc or smartphone to run it. Your PC or telephone should run the HP Smart program before you may set up the Tango X. On top panel of the printer you will find two or three context-dependent buttons. They're barely noticeable till they light up, showing you their function, such as canceling a print job or printing a status sheet.

Multifunction Design Goes Mobile

The Tango X is wireless-only. The accent is on cloud-based sharing and printing, and the capacity to publish from everywhere using the app.

In the HP Smart program (accessible for Android and iOS), among the top functions is"Print Facebook photos" When you choose the"Print files" attribute, you can pick a PDF or internet documents in Google Drive or Dropbox, for instance. There's no link to the local documents folder on the telephone. And, because Android does not encourage Word file formats, you will have to use a third-party program or convert into Google Docs to publish .doc along with .docx files. Apple's iOS supports those formats, so iPhones are able to publish Word docs natively inside the HP Smart app.

Most intriguing is that you're able to use the HP Smart program to perform scan and copy functions. Really, it's a misnomer: You're taking a photo with your tablet or smartphone and printing or attaching it to an email as a JPEG or PDF file. As a result of this, whether you like or loathe the"copy" and"scan" quality can depend largely on the character of the camera into your cell phone. I believed my 13-megapixel camera onto my LG K20 Plus would provide better results, but I was very disappointed with the outcome. Additionally, I analyzed with an iPhone 8 Plus (that has a 12-MP camera). This delivered high quality, but still was not ideal (more on that in the print quality and software segments below).

Print Speed

The Tango X published our five-page text document in 30.8 seconds, which was a couple seconds quicker than the average. The Tango X also was speedy at printing graphics; it churned out a six-page colour PDF at 1 minute and 47 seconds. The Canon TS9120 has been just a hair faster, at 1:45.8.
The Tango X additionally printed glossy pictures quickly, averaging two minutes and 38 seconds to get a letter-size photograph, in comparison with the average of 4:24. The Canon TS9120 was considerably quicker, at 1:57.

Each these official test times were performed by a Windows 10 notebook computer. As expected, print times by a Android phone, were also slower. As an instance, printing one text from a PC averaged 8.4 seconds, versus 11.3 minutes from my Android phone. The gap was more dramatic when I published larger files. The six-page colour PDF that takes 1 minute and 47 seconds for the Tango X to publish in the PC, took 4 minutes and 33 seconds from the Android phone. Printing 4- by 6-inch snapshots, but was similar.

Copy and Scan Speed

In the event you would like to copy or scan a document with all the HP Tango X, you need to catch it with a smartphone's camera. Once processing the document, the Tango X spits out a print (or copy), or offers sharing options if you are using the scan function. In the HP Smart app, you join a scanned file to a email for a PDF or JPEG file.

When you're using an Android phone, these works are a lot slower than they'd maintain standalone operation with an all-in-one which has a flatbed scanner. As an example, the Canon TS9120 created a color copy in 17.3 minutes, whereas the Tango X along with LG Android telephone took just 1 minute and 11 minutes to copy the identical page. An iPhone 8 Plus took 58 minutes to generate a color copy.

In the same way, the TS9120 created a black-and-white copy in just 14 seconds, while the Tango X with the HP Smart app running in my Android cellphone took over twice as long (31 minutes ) to produce precisely the identical copy. With an iPhone 8 Plus, copying a text page took 43 seconds.

From the HP Smart app, the scan-to-email function took 18 seconds to capture an image and process it, and a few moments to attach it as a JPEG or PDF to an email message -- that is, even if it finished the function. When I placed a color document beneath a 150-watt ribbon, the iPhone 8 Plus wasn't able to capture it using automatic settings, even though it had caught and printed it under the same conditions with the backup function. I was successful, however, once I switched to the manual-capture setting.

Our normal color scanning evaluation is for developing a 600-dpi JPEG record, however, the HP Scan program offers no resolution settings and produces a 300-dpi JPEG file. The PDF files it created from my Android phone were roughly one-fifth the document size of those 300-dpi PDF documents generated on all flatbed scanners.

Print Superior

Print quality has been high throughout the board. Text documents printed with sharp and dark letterforms. And though there was an obvious difference when I published from an Android cellphone, the difference was slight. Upon close inspection, the letterforms looked slightly lighter and more not quite as sharp around the edges.

Graphics looked very appealing, with a lot of fine detail; well-saturated and natural-looking colours; and smooth, midtone transitions. This was true on graphics printed from a Android cellphone.

The same was true of glossy photograph prints. The exact same high quality was there, if the photograph was published using a PC or mobile cellphone. The photos printed with bright, natural colors and tons of detail.

The exact same cannot be said of this scan and copy quality. And as the optics on the iPhone are clearly superior, they still can't hold a candle into a flatbed scanner and copier.

Together with all the Android, text has been often blurry past understanding and unreadable. White-text pages occasionally came out with a dark-gray history, which I considered unusable. The sharpness of the text improved radically when I employed the iPhone, but the desktop still came out grey (although not as dark as with all the Android). I had to light up the text with a 150-watt light bulb to get it to produce a lighter grey background.

Shade copies also seemed much better with all the iPhone. Color images printed with sharper details and more accurate colours. Even so, with a tiny smartphone to shoot a document from a short distance off is bound to result in optic distortions: Straight lines have a tendency to develop an arc, no matter how hard you try to place the camera at dead center.

In spite of the premium iPhone camera, I wouldn't ever opt for this program over a flatbed scanner to photograph documents.

Ink Price and Yield

If you purchase ink cartridges individually, the HP Tango X provides above-average ink costs. Employing conventional cartridges, costs each page are 8.5 cents (black) and 21.8 cents (colour ), compared to average cost (7.7 pennies and 20.9 cents( respectively).

As with other printer makers, HP delivers a subscription application that claims to reduce prices and automate ink-cartridge delivery. The plan does not take ink color into account. Unused pages could be rolled over into the next month and extra sets of capsules can be purchased.

Installation and Software

The printer comes in shrink wrap, which you eliminate, along with a thin protective sheet inside the cover. To begin setup, you must get into the HP Smart app on a PC or clever device and follow the prompts. Setup was straightforward, but I experienced a couple of hiccups. Once I solved that glitch, I received an"HP Print Service plugin is lost" error and was advised a firmware update was needed, which I performed.

When I used the HP Smart software on a Windows 10 notebook, I found it a little annoying that creating prints other than default configurations often required going to a"more settings" page in order to modify the landscape/portrait orientation or to print in the greatest possible resolution.

Utilizing the HP Smart Printing program on my Android phone was an exercise in patience. The auto-scan feature frequently resulted in an error that said,"Having problems? Try out manual" As soon as I tried to make a replica of a text file, the"processing" function pulled for more than 3 minutes until I simply gave up. The document I was hoping to picture was sitting right beneath a 50-watt desk lamp, alongside a window letting in ambient lighting. Later scans done beneath a 150-watt bulb by exactly the exact same window did complete, but the results looked terrible.

Even so, using the auto-capture configurations at the scan-to-email function was ineffective on a color document, and that I needed to change to the manual-capture setting.

The automatic-cropping purpose frequently cut off parts of my document or required I fix it. With the Android phone, I had to expand my crop because the auto crop framed just part of this document. With all the iPhone, I needed to shrink the crop because the dark backdrop was being included in the harvest.

One interesting note here is that there's a scan folder in the intelligent program. However, when you make a backup or utilize the scan-to-email feature, this folder remains vacant. Those images are not stored.

The Tango X is slow to begin. The fastest startup time was 48 seconds, at which point the printer performs a little tune and inner sounds stop. Because the printer features a screen, it's tough to ascertain exactly when it is ready to undertake a project. On other occasions, it takes 1 minute and 23 seconds for your printer to show up in the Android HP Smart program and two minutes to Acrobat to find the printer to be able to publish a PDF file.

The HP Tango X, although designed for people whose online lives revolve around the cloud along with a smartphone, may be a good fit just for people looking exclusively for a printer. Print speeds from a PC are quickly, and publish quality is very large. Although print costs are over the average, an ink subscription might do the job well for consumers who consistently max out their monthly print allowance. On the other hand, the scan and copy functions of this smartphone program leave a lot to be desired.

In comparison, the Canon Pixma TS9120 also offers cloud printing via the iOS/Android Canon Print app -- but additionally, it has a flatbed scanner, a memory card slot, prints on CD/DVD disks and contains a touch-screen control panel to get standalone operation. With a smartphone is convenient in many cases, but not in case you're using it together with all the Tango X and have to rely on it to get many purposes.
