Summer vacation has arrived, my daughter is ready to enter the vacation mode, but as my daughter began to enter the senior grade, I have more and more requirements for her study, obviously when the vacation in the relaxation, in the consolidation of learning still can not slacken. Now that schools have started to implement a "load shedding" policy, it is likely that my child will not have too much homework in the summer, so I started to consider keeping a printer at home for my child, not only to review her homework in the summer. In addition, it will also allow my children to print out test papers and materials issued by their teachers at any time when they are in higher grades.
Before I bought a regular inkjet printer, but the regular printer is larger, in the low frequency of use is also easy to clog the nozzle, plus supplies and other issues, so this time I am considering giving my children a thermal printer that supports A4 printing. After comparing several thermal learning printers, I chose this excellent price-performance ratio of Hanprint FT800 learning printer.
Minimalist design, compact size, simple operation
From the packaging, we can see that the design of the Hanprint FT800 learning printer is still very youthful and energetic, this relatively trendy design elements in many similar products is not common, I personally still like it very much.
From above, the size of the Hanmark FT800 is not large, and my 87-key keyboard is about the same size, so it can be easily stored and placed in a corner on the desk. White color with wood grain design, looks very comfortable, whether in the study or on the TV stand, the overall adaptability is very high.
In the upper lower right corner, we see the HarmonyOS logo, so this Hanmark FT800 can be connected through the HarmonyOS-equipped cell phone at the touch of a button, a touch can quickly connect pairing, start printing, convenient and faster.
From the design point of view, Hanmark FT800 is still very simple, the overall details of the treatment is very rounded, and the texture is very comfortable.
In terms of operation, the printer has only one power-on button and two indicators, all operations can basically be done through the app, and one operation on the phone can complete the printing. On the right side of the indicator, we see two small holes. The biggest difference between the two products is that the FT880 supports the Tmall Genie function, while the FT800 doesn't. The two holes are reserved for the microphone.
There are two toggle open cover buttons on both sides of the body, gently toggle to open the upper compartment cover, the speaker hole below has a somewhat similar function to the microphone.
For the needs of different users, the FT800 supports two types of connection for printing, one is the cell phone app operation, and another is the regular connection to the computer for printing, but I personally prefer the convenient and fast cell phone operation mode, eliminating the need for cable connection and the trouble of computer boot. However, in order to facilitate the needs of some users, the bottom of the printer is still reserved for the computer connection port, also comes with a connection cable.
Installing the paper before use is also very simple, just gently pull up the bin cover, then follow the instructions on the paper, put the print paper in, cover the bin cover and you are done with all the hardware preparation before use. In terms of the cost of printing paper, I bought this volume of printing paper usually keeps the price at about 20 yuan, each volume can print 100 sheets of A4 paper, plus the thermal printer does not require additional supplies, so the printing cost per sheet of paper in the upper and lower 20 cents.
Fast printing speed, clear handwriting, safe to use
One of the biggest advantages of thermal printers over regular inkjet printers is their fast printing speed. However, many partners to ask the FT800 without ink cartridges, no toner cartridge, so how clear the printout, thermal paper printout content can be stored for a long time, thermal paper writing and traditional A4 paper is there a difference? With these questions I will test one by one.
First of all, I tested the printing speed of Hanprint FT800, as you can see from the motion picture, when printing a picture, in sending print instructions to the picture hit, the time is about 10 seconds, the time to print the content is about 3 seconds, compared to the inkjet printer I used before, this speed is completely crushing level.
And then look at the printing effect, many partners will say that the Chinese print FT800 is a thermal printer, no ink, showing how the effect in the end? I tried to print the same test paper with the FT800 as well as traditional printers, the left is the content of the FT800 print, the right is the inkjet printer printed test paper. From the font details, Hanprint FT800 300ppi print resolution effect is still very good, and ordinary inkjet printers print out the document basically not much difference, the overall clarity is still good.
In terms of paper it needs to be mentioned that due to the special nature of thermal paper, its preservation is not the same as traditional A4. Thermal paper is mostly used in rolls, similar to Hanprint FT800 special printing paper, a roll can print 100 sheets of ordinary A4 paper, a single installation saves the trouble of adding paper. I tried the feel of Hanprint FT800 special printing paper, from a personal feeling, this paper tougher, the strength of the paper is also much better than ordinary A4 paper.
Many partners who have used thermal printers will have doubts, many thermal paper after printing, after gently scratching with a fingernail, it is easy to form a similar effect of walking ink, affecting the printing effect at the same time, there will be parents worried about the safety of thermal printing paper. Many parents may be concerned about the presence of "BPA" in Hanprint FT800 printing paper, and whether prolonged exposure will have an impact on the body. From the official information, this Hanprint FT800 special thermal paper to do the BPA treatment, and through the SGS safety and environmental protection certification, and to ensure that the thermal paper color rendering effect to maintain more than 10 years.
Although the special printing paper for Hanprint FT800 is in rolls, I tested the weight of the paper after printing, and each sheet weighed about 4.6g.
The weight of ordinary A4 paper is also in the 4.6g up and down, which also proves that the print paper of FT800 is definitely not worse than ordinary A4 in terms of material, and in the texture, paper toughness is also stronger than ordinary A4 paper.
When the child is writing, the Hanprint FT800 printing paper is still very smooth when writing, and now that summer is here, even if there is sweat, the content on the paper will not be easily wiped off.
App-enhanced, richer content and more convenient experience
As a printer that supports HarmonyOS, if you have a cell phone with HarmonyOS installed in your hand, it is much easier to operate, touch the HarmonyOS card location on the printer directly with your phone, you can quickly download the Han XiaoYin app and directly enter the printing interface, which is much easier to operate and very convenient to print. I do not have a phone that supports the HarmonyOS system, so I need to search and install it during operation, but the printing steps are the same.
After connecting the printer, we are able to see the product information in the app, as well as some basic functions such as document printing, picture printing, etc. As a parent, I personally like some of the features of the FT800 that can help my child improve their learning, such as error collection, error management, common materials and some of the content of my child's learning materials. In addition, there are some test paper printing and test paper shooting and changing features that are really useful. Through the Hanprint app, we can also accurately understand the child's learning report, helping the child to accurately improve the learning effect.
This resource library is really rich in poetry, arithmetic and composition material content, from elementary school to high school, basically covering all stages of a child's basic learning.
This HanPrint FT800 not only provides a large number of learning resources, but also a lot of common materials for printing inside the app, such as notes, sketches, financial statements and so on, eliminating the trouble of finding them online, in addition to some common system contracts can also be printed directly.
When we do printing operations on mobile devices, most of the time we receive the files through WeChat or qq. When printing, we can not only print word and PDF files through HanXiaoYin app, but we can also directly find the WeChat file and open it by other means and select HanXiaoYin, which makes the operation more convenient. When printing, we are not only able to print locally, but also remotely if we are on a business trip or at work, and all we have to do is just change a print mode. It is worth noting that the Hanprint FT800 can also cut the paper as needed, whether it is A3, A4 or A5, the printer can do it automatically, eliminating the need for manual cutting.
All in all, whether it's for final revision to print some test papers for the kids to review, or to print materials sent by teachers, the HanPrint FT800 is very convenient and fast, and I no longer have to move out my heavy inkjet printer.
Summary: Resourceful and super easy to print
I've been using the Hanmark FT800 Learning Printer for most of the month, and it just so happens that during this period my children are preparing for their final exams, so I've been printing a lot of content during this time, and overall I'm personally very satisfied with this Hanmark FT800 Learning Printer.
One, compact size, easy to place. This Hanprint FT800 compared to traditional inkjet printers or toner cartridge printers, more compact, whether on the desk or cabinet will not take up too much space, and does not need to connect to the computer, as long as a power cord to solve the problem, so some free corners of the home can also be placed;.
Second, inkless printing saves both consumables, non-toxic thermal printing paper is also cheap, easy to install and, more importantly, safe as well as stable color rendering.
Third, Hanprint FT800 can support a variety of printing methods, whether cell phones or computers can be operated, not only to operate printing at home, but also to support remote printing.
Fourth, the content is rich, the resources cover the main stages of the child's basic learning, the key points are easy to collect, and the printer also provides some common materials, eliminating the need to find the trouble of the Internet.
In the process of using it, I still found some of the limitations of this:Hanmark FT800.
One, due to the characteristics of thermal printing and size limitations, color content and picture printing can not be completed, especially some color information content released by the teacher.
(b) As thermal printing paper needs to be curled and placed for a slightly longer period of time, it will be easily bent, so it needs to be stored with favorites.
Third, in a resource-saving society, A4 thermal paper and a small nagging problem of not being able to print on both sides.
