i have one. so far it seems reliable, although it's very lightweight and completely made of plastic. (the polaroid polaprinter is much more heavier and robust) some units run on 4 "C" batteries and some use an AC adapter. the battery operated units are obviously very portable because they are so light & dont need a power supply. i would check that the rollers are clean, although if they arent they can easily be cleaned later. i would make sure the unit powers up and the flash fires. these units, i believe, have some sort of auto exposure mechanism, and a slide MUST be inserted for the unit to fire (thats been my experience.) make sure it comes with the filter holder also.
