Expert Review

The GL 10 is the very definition of a portable printer. It's small enough to fit in your backpack or handbag and creates instant prints with only a cursory amount of hookup to any source containing digital images. So your smartphone, your digital camera, your PC or laptop are all prime candidates for use with Polaroid's little photo printer.

Image quality will vary, dependent upon the amount of pixels in the device you took the photo with in the first place. Lower pixel devices are going to output a less impressive product than those with a higher count, of course.

The GL 10 uses a special kind of paper called ZINK to print your photographs. It comes in a 10 pack, which you slide into the printer, each sheet measuring 3 x 4 inches. The prints are inkless and use dye crystals to capture and produce the image into a hard copy photograph.

Connectivity is through a USB connection or Wi-Fi or PictBridge enabled mobile devices, just send the image from your phone via Bluetooth, or patch your digital camera or even a thumb-drive into the back of the unit via USB cable, and voila, you're ready to start printing. The printing speed isn’t bad either, with an elapsed output time per print of under one minute.Rating: 4/5
