Using driver for old windows, you can use this handheld printer.
The SiPix A6 printer works! Loaded software on three Windows 98SE, and got it to print on all three. I like that it can run on AA cells, which means no worry about special batteries that become unavailable. Now that I have it printing, I am working on getting it to stop printing when the job is done - the printer keeps churning out blank paper. Also, I am working on the printer port, so I can print directly from QBASIC (LPT port). So, if you have very old software - Windows 98 to 2000, and PDA 3.0, this is the printer for you.

The little printer that could...
The Sipix Pocket Printer, so far, is -in my estimation- a perfect solution for my needs. It's not a full-sized printer (obviously), so I don't expect photo-quality images; I don't require color, and can't stand bulky peripherals touted as "portable." This little gem fits neatly in my truck's ashtray, is perfect for printing invoices in the field, needs no ink, has printed an entire roll of paper with no immediate sign of battery fatigue (no AC adapter yet), and, while not as fast as a desktop printer, is a helluva lot faster than driving to a Kinko's just to print up a short-form contract or invoice. I plan on running this thing into the ground, it's so useful...hopefully they'll still be available when this one gives up the ghost...I'll probably break down and buy a few more, just to keep some in reserve. If you're looking for a decent little printer for on-the-fly documents (on a shoestring budget), you really can't go wrong with one of these. The only problem I have is finding an AC adapter to go with it, as one was not included in my package; But I can't see buying a few AA batteries every now and then to be that much of a problem, either...especially when I don't have to fork over my hard-earned cash for ink cartridges. The print size is small, but manageable and the fonts used in MSWORD and WordPerfect translate faithfully without a problem. Some have called the print engine "noisy"...I disagree. It's quieter than my ringing cellphone, and not at all annoying. I really can't think of any other portable that I've used which has all it needs to get the job done, other than USB connectivity, which can be done with a USB-to-serial adapter (I had to buy a USB-to-IRDA Adapter, as my netbook has no IR built-in, and no serial port, either). The IR transfer is reasonably quick and the printer starts spitting out forms within a few seconds. The installation was easy enough for me, a moderately skilled PC user. Some, who are not quite as savvy at browsing files or working with advanced installation techniques, may have a harder time figuring out the installation of the necessary drivers, as the latest package is for the obsolete ME and 2000 versions of Windows (I have XP). However, with a little patience and maybe a tech-friendly buddy, they should be up and printing in no time. Once I had received my USB-to-IRDA adapter, I had it spitting out a test page as my default printer in about 20 minutes. Here's to mobility... Hope this review helps. Cheers! Read full review

Sipix pocket A6 printer
I use this printer with a Panasonic Toughbook for field use. The A 6 paper is good for issuing quick printed notes. I even printed my contact numbers in MS word and print it out for those who need it. You wll go through lots of paper, so stock up!. One bad note: When instailling on a computer, make sure you have a working serial port. Most newer computers do not have serial ports. Also, the driver for these printer are hard to come by. Keep the one that came with the printer. I have not found a web site that will downlaod a driver for free. I have not idea if this printer even works with Windows Vista of Windows 7. But for XP it is fine. A nice little printer if you have a need for it!

Works great on my internal infrared ports and on my 9 pin serial ports on my very old Windows 98SE and with my more modern Windows 2000 laptops. Resolution is fantastically good. Can read everything perfectly clearly, even very fine print with strong reading glasses. Can be a little bit tricky to install. You gotta RTFM and you gotta know how to determine which comport is which, and you gotta make sure that there are no IRQ conflicts. For printing with the infrared port you gotta make sure that the setting for the infrared port is comport 4. That's what it says in the fine manual. Also, the printouts produced with the manufacturer-supplied A6 thermal roll paper will hold up for a very long time. In my experience I have found that they do not tend to turn dark, even when left out face-up on a table and exposed continuously to normal room lighting over a period of several months.
