Purchased separately through Amazon, these two printers would set you back $250 ($149.99 for the Tango and $99.95 for the Sprocket). Right now, Amazon is offering them together for just $179.99, or a $69.95 discount.
Designed to work primarily with mobile devices, the Tango supports Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and Microsoft Cortana for voice-activated, hands-free printing.
We reviewed its more expensive sibling, the $199 Tango X, and said it “delivers print speeds, output, and running costs comparable to similarly priced competitors without all the smarts.” Overall, it received “excellent” marks and our first Editors’ Choice award in the budding smart home printer category. As we noted in the review, “the only difference between the Tango and the $50-pricier Tango X is that the latter comes with a fabric ‘wrap’ that folds around the printer, essentially disguising what it is.”
The portable HP Sprocket, meanwhile, lets you print wallet-size (2-by-3) photos from your smartphone, including images you post on social media. You can even use the HP Sprocket app to add text, borders, and emojis to your images before printing them.
“Sprocket uses seamless Bluetooth connectivity, so you can set it up at parties and events, and everyone can print their favorite moments from their smartphones or tablets,” HP says.
The bundle Amazon has on sale comes with the original Sprocket, not the newer 2nd Edition version. The original Sprocket was our Editors’ Choice for almost two years, and earned “excellent” marks in our review.
If you’re considering this deal, don’t mull it over for too long. This is an Amazon Deal of the Day, so if you wait until tomorrow, you’ll miss your chance to save.
Head over to Amazon to pick up the HP Tango and HP Sprocket for just $179.99.
