Offering you portable printing capabilities, the SiPix A6 Pocket Palm Printer connects easily to either PCs or Palm Pilots. While it may not be as fast as your in-office printer, this little gem weighs in at less than 1 pound and churns out documents at 2 ppm with a decent 400 dpi resolution. Overall dimensions are scarcely larger than some wallets (5.8 by 4.25 inches), and the thickness is less than 1 inch.

The direct thermal printing method means the only consumables are the paper and the batteries; if you use the AC adapter, your only expense will be replacement paper rolls. Run time with the adapter is a full hour, while the batteries supply just three minutes of power.

Included in the box are both the adapter and a starter set of batteries, along with a roll of paper, a power cable, and a convenient travel bag. SiPix offers a one-year warranty that covers parts, labor, and 12 months of free telephone technical support.

This printer works only with outdated operating systems (Windows XP or earlier) and WILL NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7.
Richard Niell Donovan
Still doesn't work because the service cable is outdated and doesn't plug into my laptop connections.

On impulse I bought the Sipix A6 printer, brand new,(for a mere 19 bucks!) after checking it's compatibility with my invoicing software -Lowfat Invoice. However, I DID NOT check whether there were any known issues with the Dell Axim X5 and I was unaware of the wonderful people at AXIMSITE.COM.
Soooo, the unit arrives. I giggle. I Take it out the box, pop in the CD and there were only drivers for 2000/98/ME and Palm. %$!!&#! I'm running XP Pro and PPC 2002. I google and search for drivers. I found these: [...] and I'm printing in XP - Woo Hoo! Load the CE drivers, attempt to print from LowFat - nuthin. %$!!&#! I made several attempts of removing and reinstalling the drivers, even changing the location (SD Card, main memory, built-in storage) -all, to no avail. Then I spot a thread response in Aximsite Forums by zipidydoda that recommended removing all the expansion cards and reloading the drivers. So I:
1) Remove my SD Card and the compact flash card
2) Did a soft reset
3) Put it in the USB Cradle
4) Used ActiveSync to remove the Sipix Printer Driver (if you get an error stating that a file is still loaded in memory you may have to tap> Start> Settings> System> Memory >Running Programs> Stop all - however, doing a soft reset before this step should help you avoid any errors)
5) Did a soft reset (after taking it out of the cradle)
6) Put it in the USB Cradle
7) Reinstalled the driver (location provided above)
8) Turned Axim off (after taking it out of the cradle) -this was also part of the instructions provided by Sipix
9) Turned Axim on
10) Print from A6print (tap > Start>Programs> A6print -it is best to choose a small txt file for quick printing)
11) Voila !!
So I'm printing -Woo Hoo!

In principle, this a great printer for the Palm, but be aware of the sofware. The printer comes with a sofware that allows you to print only from Datebook, addressbook, todo, and memo. In my case I wanted the printer to be able to print my documents from Quickword, and Quicksheet, multimail. After contacting Sipix, I was informed that I had to purchase Palmprint, which can print documents from Quickword, and for Quicksheet, I find out that I have to purchase Printboy. Bottom line, on top of the cost of the printer, you still have to purchase other printing softwares in order to take full advantage of this printer, which translates into more $$$$$$$$$$.
This is absolutely rediculous, it should be up to the manufacturer to supply the proper software that will enable the users to print from any applications that they use. Beside, this printer is aimed at businessman/women, buying a printer that will allow printing only from addressbook, todo, memo, or datebook is by no mean of any help to any business person. The reason I wanted to buy this printer, was to be able to print my documents while on the road (word, excel, e-mail, faxes..)
Defenitely not worth the buy, until it is supplied with the proper software that will enable printing from any application.

This printer works only with outdated operating systems (Windows XP or earlier) and WILL NOT WORK WITH WINDOWS 7. Therefore, I cannot install it to work with my computer--AND THEN I LEARNED THAT IT IS NOT ELIGIBLE FOR RETURN TO THE SELLER.

I was pretty angry, so I wrote a review critical of the printer -- and Amazon.

But I contacted Amazon, and they made it possible for me to return the printer.

So YEAH! for Amazon -- and RASPBERRIES for this printer (and Acedepot).

Color Name: Blue
This thermal paper uses small rolls to print on - requiring no ink. It's small, lightweight (except with 4 "AA" batteries) and can receive data via its IrDA port OR serial connection. This did not work with my Jornada 680e but did with a iPad 19xx so it may not work with older PDAs (though, it was designed to work with Palms). You *can* use it with a desktop or laptop but you simply cannot install the drivers and "voila!" The properties of the connection between the printer and computer must be manually modified for it to work properly - but when you get it to work, it's perfect. I use it to print receipts and it is absolutely fantastic. I suppose the only "downside" to it is that paper for it is pretty expensive...the starter rolls aren't going to be enough to do much with so plan on looking for CUT or ROLL (preferably) cheap.

I have just bought this printer, and let me say, it is the best device that I have bought for my sony Clie. I am running Palm OS 4.1, and it works great. I downloaded the IRprint and Doctoprint combo demo from IRprint.com. It has good quality print, for pure text. The only problem that I have found is that it is sometimes hard to get a perfect lineup between the IR ports, but that might just be my handheld. Overall, I would say, go out and buy it. It has a definate cool factor. If you need a printer for documents to go, sheet to go, or any of the built in palm apps, get this one!!

Will not work with the new Dell Axim or most 2002 version of Pocket PC. Sipix has said "They are working on the problem" for at least a year that I know of. How hard would it be to write a driver for these handhelds? Tech support refuses to reply by e-mail and only by phone which takes 45 minutes to connect. Works OK with laptop and other than the paper only lasts for 20 printouts per roll and the curl is hard to get out it works good.
Make sure if you buy one of these that you can send it back if it won't work with your device.
