Easy installation with a compact discreet lightweight size. Works perfectly for the wireless or portable savy user. If your computer does not have Bluetooth you can easily attach a Bluetooth USB Adapter ie Iogear Bluetooth Adapter. Softwares and installation for both are a breeze though require some reading, the time is well worth it. As for the price- I feel that it is within reasonable means. I has little ones running around my small work area when I am indoor so having to de-clutter and go wireless is more practical than having cords and wires across the room just waiting for someone to trip, damage a device, get hurt, and having to go to the hospitals ER and paying an expensive medical bill is quiet a chaos I am avoiding especially in this though economic times. Great wireless within 10 meters (30-33feet). Good Luck to all the wireless savvys!

I bought this knowing that it would arrive with no instructions, and that the installation might be tricky. There weren't any instructions and installation was tricky.

In my case I had to uninstall the wired version of my printer in Mac OS 7.7 before it recognized the Bluetooth connected printer. I also updated the driver from the Canon website, but I don't know if that helped.

After a while of struggling I turned everything off and restarted everything and it magically worked. I haven't tried the fax or scan functions of the printer via Bluetooth, but from comments out there I am not too hopeful.

It is a shame that Canon doesn't support this better. I bought the printer for my daughter's dorm room because it was "wireless". The wireless in her dorm is the University wireless network. It doesn't allow her to attach a wireless printer to her PC, so Bluetooth is her only option. I am sure there are lots of situations like hers across the country.

    Canon blue adapter

    from new york city

    Comments about Canon BU-30 Bluetooth Adapter:

    I bought the Canon ip100 printer recently and needed wireless printing from my phone and tablets. So I got the bluetooth adapter, and it works GREAT!!! You can plug it into into the USB port or place it inside the printer housing. Download the app to your devices and you are good to go anywhere with your portable printer!!! GREAT!!!!

        Comments about Canon BU-30 Bluetooth Adapter:

        Product does exactly what it was intended to do. I do not notice any loss in print speed and it eliminates the need to connect the computer to the printer by wire. I can place the printer anywhere in my office that's convenient for me. Also, when I'm in a hotel with limited desk space I can place the printer anywhere. I can also use my printer while in another room.

                              This might work well for those who use phones, but it wouldn't pair with my iPod Touch 4G (even though it is the same technology as the iPhone). It also would be better if it could be permanently installed instead of having to plug it into the USB drive socket.

                                    Comments about Canon BU-30 Bluetooth Adapter:

                                    I purchased a Canon iP-100 portable printer a couple years ago(BEST Ink-Jet printer I ever owned). I dreamed of going 'Bluetooth' but did not want to spend the extra $50-$60 bucks for the BU-30. I found the BU-30 at B&H video for a VERY good price and FREE shipping so I "bit the bullet". The iP-100 has a hidden area inside just for the BU-30 so there is no Adaptor outside the unit to risk getting broken. I am very happy with the now wireless Canon Printer.

                                    Comments about Canon BU-30 Bluetooth Adapter:

                                    I use this product in conjunction with a Canon iP100 PIXMA printer in order to print from my iPhone 4S and MacBook Pro. I was looking for a portable printer that could be taken to my parents house during holidays or special occasions in order to provide quick and easy printing of pictures of their grand kids.

                                    I believe in brand compatibility, and went with this product as opposed to other Bluetooth dongles. Caveat: I have been a Canon camera/video/printer user for the past 15 years.

                                    It fits as one would expect, and has given me reliable usage throughout the few weeks that I've owned and utilized the equipment.
