Bluetooth printingoffers several advantages: First, you won’t needto affix cables to the printer, aloof about-face it on andgo. Second, clashing the IRDA affiliation thatother printers use for wireless connection, Bluetoothdoesn’t crave you to band up the ports. Yourprinter and Abridged PC alone accept to be a abundant toeach added (within 3 feet) to print.

The WM-140BT is absolute baby (only 3.9″ wide, 6.3″ tall, and0.7″ deep) and absolute ablaze (only 0.66 lbs).

Afore you use theprinter, there are three accomplish you allegation to do to setit up: Aboriginal you accept to install thepaper cassette. Second, you accept to install thesoftware. Finally, you accept to set up theBluetooth affiliation to your Abridged PC. Here’swhat all that entails:
Installing the Paper
The thermal cardboard for the MW-100 alternation printers comesin a appropriate cardboard cassette which is closed in anair-tight package. The amalgamation will additionally protectthe cardboard from bashful calefaction so you don’t accept to beconcerned with pre-exposed paper. The papercassette has account instructions (see photos below)that actualization you how to catechumen the box into the formused to amount the cardboard into the printer. Below,you can see pictures of the cassette as it comes outof the air-tight amalgamation and as it looks aback it’sconverted to amount into the printer. The onlyproblem with the account instructions is that theydon’t accord a acceptable adumbration of how to acclimatize thecassette aback you abode it in the printer.

The CD-ROM that comes with the printer providessoftware and drivers for application the printer with aPocket PC, a Palm, or a Windows laptop or desktopsystem. The CD will auto-start on systems thatsupport it, or you can run Bureaucracy from the basis folderon the CD-ROM. Aback you do, you’ll get thescreen apparent below.
Brother Adaptable PrintingSoftware Bureaucracy — capital screen
You can accept to install disciplinarian and abutment softwarefor Windows-based, Abridged PC, or Palm computers. You can additionally argue the Software Guide or Owner’sManual. Selecting the Abridged PC advantage gets youthe awning apparent below.
Abridged PC Bureaucracy —install choices
There are two programs provided for columnist from thePocket PC. Brother adaptable columnist software(also accepted as MPrint) provides added options forprinting, but beneath specific abutment for Abridged Word,Pocket Excel, and Inbox/Messaging. PrintPocketCEprovides bigger abutment for those formats. Foreither alternative above, you’ll get the awning shownbelow to acquiesce you to accept which Abridged PC operatingsystem your accessory has.
Abridged PC Bureaucracy —operating arrangement choices
Once you baddest youroperating system, the software installs application the accepted ActiveSync”Install New Software” functionality.

However, if you try to install the software inanyplace added than the “default location,” the MPrint softwarewon’t work. This isn’t absolute acceptable accession accepted programming. Added affairs installers will automatically admit the operatingsystem and acquaint you not to install in an invalid location.
Setting up the Bluetooth Affiliation may differslightly, depending on which Abridged PC you have. The afterward will actualization how it looks on the hp 2215 iPAQ. Before you set up the connection, your printer shouldbe absolutely answerable and angry on. You’ll additionally haveto accomplish abiding the Bluetooth radio is angry on usingthe dejected about-face on the ancillary of the printer.
MW-140BT Status LEDs (top to bottom) charging,charged/On, Bluetooth radio on
MW-140BT ancillary actualization assuming (left to right)power on/off, Bluetooth on/off, USB port, and adeptness connector
The Bluetooth affiliation to the printer is done viathe Consecutive Anchorage (emulation) profile. TheBluetooth software on your Abridged PC doesn’t “know”that it’s talking to a printer. As far asBluetooth is concerned, it’s aloof some consecutive portprofile acknowledging device. The specifics ofworking with the printer are handled by the printersupport software. That’s at atomic partly becauseWindowsCE/Pocket PC doesn’t accept any congenital supportfor printing. Aback you’re not alive witha specialized Bluetooth profile, you’ll activate by”browsing” or “exploring” the device.
Bluetooth affiliation —first baddest explore/browse
Aback you alpha browsing,you may acquisition added than one Bluetooth accessory present. The one youwant to baddest is the MW-140BTxxxx like the one apparent below.
Bluetooth affiliation — aing baddest theMW-140BT
After you baddest the printer as the accessory to browse,you’ll be asked for the “passkey.” The passkeyis the aftermost four digits of the printer’s serialnumber, but, afore you about-face your printer over to findthem, apprehension that they’re added to the accessory namethat the printer provides to Bluetooth. (In mycase, my consecutive cardinal ends in “4331.”)
Bluetooth affiliation — admission passkey
Onceyou’ve entered the passkey, you’ll see article like the awning shownbelow. The alone contour that the printer supports is Consecutive Portemulation so baddest it and columnist next.
Bluetooth affiliation — baddest the SerialPort profile
That completes the Bluetooth affiliation setup. From now on, your Abridged PC will admit a serialconnection to the MW-140BT printer.
As I mentioned in the”Hot” section, the MW-140BT is absolutely small. Youcan get an abstraction of how baby from the account I showedearlier with the printer aing to a ruler. Togive you a bigger feel of the size, actuality are someother shots that actualization the admeasurement compared to an iPAQPocket PC, a quarter, and Compact Flash and SD memorycards.
MW-140BT printer apparent with hp 2215 PocketPC, CF & SD anamnesis cards, and a division for admeasurement comparison
One affair I didn’t acknowledgment in ahead is that theprinter is accessible to book as anon as you about-face it on. There is no “warm-up” period. The printer has a”sleep mode” breadth it continues to “look” for anincoming Bluetooth signal, but contrarily draws lesspower. I activate that it was so quick to alpha upthat I hardly anytime larboard the printer on to accomplish use ofthe “sleep mode.” Instead I angry it off afterI printed and afresh on aback I bare it again. The printer uses “A7″ admeasurement (2.9″x4.1″) paper. Sincethat’s not accepted (8.5″x11”) paper, thedriver software automatically resizes the columnist so that a abounding folio will book onone A7-sized sheet. Below, you can see a account of the printer as it looks afterhaving aloof printed a document. The cardboard feedsfrom the basal of the cassette, through the thermalprinting head, and assuredly exits through the aperture asshown. We’ll booty a afterpiece attending at theprinting after-effects afterwards but I’ll say now that I was veryimpressed by how bright the argument was.
MW-140BT Adaptable Printerhaving aloof printed a Abridged Excel document
There are two reasonsto go with thermal columnist as Brother did with the MW-100 series. First, thermal columnist is quiet. Second, thermal columnist hasfar beneath affective genitalia than added columnist methods. Because ofthis, thermal columnist uses beneath power. Brother advertises 100pages printed on a abounding charge. I activate that it absolutely exceedthat in page-after-page printing. In absolute use, abnormally ifyou leave the printer on amid absolute printing, you’ll get somewhatless. With the accepted 50-page cassette, I activate that I changedcassettes afore I had to recharge. I should additionally agenda that Brother has done some major”tweaking” on thermal printing. If you’re acclimated to thesmelly, streaky pages that achromatize about as anon as you cull them fromthe printer and about-face atramentous if you leave them in your pocket, you’rein for a affable surprise. The Brother thermal cardboard feels justlike accustomed paper. It doesn’t band if you run your feel acrossit. It’s additionally bogus to abide degradation. I foundthe columnist absolutely durable, abnormally compared to what I was acclimated tofrom thermal printing.

The manuals the comewith the MW140BT are absolute abundant on the abrupt side. They acquaint you how to install the software and brieflyhow to set up a Bluetooth affiliation and that’s it. As a fractional fix for that, you can use the Brother website to get a account of Frequently Asked Questions (and theiranswers),PDF (Adobe Acrobat) versions of the manuals,the latest versions of book drivers and software foryour PDA, andonline support. The software comes with no advice files at all. That madeit somewhat difficult to amount out how to use theMPrint software. PrintPocketCE, however, waseasy abundant to use that I allegedly wouldn’t havelooked at the chiral anyway. There’s no advice foreither affairs on the Brother web armpit as well. However, you can get some appealing appropriate advice forPrintPocketCE from the FieldSoftware web site. (That’s thefolks who wrote the program.)
The MW140BT hardware iscompatible with USB 1.1 (for laptop or desktop use)and Bluetooth 1.1 Class 2 (serial anchorage profile). It requires appropriate thermal cardboard “cassettes” (size A72.9″x4.1″) which arise in distinct sheets, three sizes ofcut labels, and 2-ply bifold copy. I was a bit anxious aback I aboriginal looked at the box theprinter came in. The box indicates that the”Bonus Software” is accordant with Abridged PC andPocket PC 2002. Fortunately, Brother keeps thesoftware adapted and it works with Windows Adaptable 2003as well. If I saw this artefact in a store, I’dhave to analysis the aggregation web armpit out aboriginal to accomplish abiding itwas accordant with WM2003 afore I bought it. Icorrective characterization would annihilate that step. Brother MPrint printer disciplinarian and columnist software requires755KB of Storage Anamnesis for accession and 150KB ofProgram Anamnesis to run. The appropriate adaptation of PrintPocketCE that comes with theprinter requires 120KB of Storage Anamnesis forinstallation and 150KB of Affairs Anamnesis to run.
TheMW-140BT accouterments performed absolutely as specified. Therewere no flaws or glitches that occurred during mytesting. The admeasurement and weight are about asperfect as they could be. The one austere blemish I apparent is with the MPrintsoftware. It has to be installed into mainmemory in adjustment to action properly. As thereis no documentation, there isn’t anywhere to agenda thisconstraint. The accession accepted installsboth MPrint and PrintPocketCE in Capital Memoryregardless, but alike so, MPrint won’t action unlessyou called to install it there. In a added accepted sense, Brother could do abundant bigger on isthe instructions and documentation. The manualhas a bare four pages on “Printer Operation” whichreally alone covers installing the software andconnecting to the printer via Bluetooth. It’s atribute to the architecture of the printer that I didn’t runinto anyproblems added than the allegedly non-functionalprogram, but the abridgement of affidavit is reallydisconcerting. I’d like to see a abounding set of instructions forboth programs that arise with the printer. I’dalso like to see bigger instructions for loading paperinto the printer. The “instructions” for doingso are in the anatomy of a diagram on the cardboard cassettebox. By attractive carefully at the printer (andnoticing the cardboard augment mechanism), I was able todetermine how to acclimatize the cardboard cassette properly,but it wasn’t accessible by the diagram. I accept one added accessory affair with the cardboard carrier: There’s a baby window on the printer that shows whichtype of cardboard is loaded. That’s a acceptable feature. What it doesn’t actualization is whether there’s any cardboard inthe carrier. If the carrier had a aperture besidethe cardboard blazon label, you could see into the carrier andknow if it’s empty. One final affair with the printer is the rechargeable battery. It’s a Li-ion array so it doesn’t accept “memory”problems, but, like all Li-ion batteries, it does havea lifespan of about 3 years. It’s additionally builtinto the printer so you’ll accept to accelerate it aback toBrother for a backup aback it does go. Ifthey fabricated it a user-replaceable battery, it would saveshipping costs for the user.
You can acquirement the Brother MW-140BT Adaptable Printer from the pocketnowStore for $399.95. You can additionally acquirement the MW-100 Adaptable Printer, which connects via USB or IRDA for $289.95. Both printers arise with a cassetteof 50 pages of thermal paper, the AC adapter/charger,a USB cable, and a CD-ROM absolute the printerdriver and MPrint and PrinterPocketCE software. You can adjustment accessories anon from Brother or from added sources. A amalgamation of A7 thermal cardboard costs $4.50 or 9 cents per sheet.
I wasn’t abiding that I’dlike the MW-140BT aback I aboriginal saw it, mostly based onthe custom-sized, thermal paper. The seriouslack of affidavit didn’t advice any. However, theprint readability and durability, and the batterylife eventually won me over. You wouldn’t appetite to use thisfor your primary printer due to the admeasurement of the paper. However, with it’s instant-on functionality,reasonable cardboard cost, and awful carriageable design, theMW-140BT is an accomplished printer for on-the-goapplications. I still can’t absolutely accompany myself torecommend this printer, alone because of the abridgement ofdocumentation. If Brother were to fix that, Iwould unhesitantly acclaim it for users requiringhighly adaptable printing.
