Summary: We use this product in a SnapLab in a copy store and it has never failed to produce saleable prints. In 15 cartons we have had one jamming failure of the flimsy dye transfer ribbon but otherwise all is positive.
Summary: No more guessing of number of ink cartridges to bring to an event, very easy to set up, excellent image quality. As opposed to a dye sub printer from another company that I used for a while, I have almost no dust problems, even if I remove the paper and the ink ribbon to transport the printer, as the instructions say to do (and which may be the only not so great thing about the printer, which is fast and reliable).
Summary: As a professional we like items that are easy to figure out... Sony has done it again!!! It is so fast and easy to install the cartridge and the paper, as well as take them out to move the printer.
