Summary: This is a simple digital printer that you can print directly from your camera and computer. The printer is pretty basic and simple to use for those quick photos. Its small and compact and would be easy to transport wherever you go! I actually purchased several for under $20 each so I have back ups in case one breaks or would get damaged. Very pleased with the quality of the pictures, Only downfall I see right now is it is difficult to find replacement ink cartridges.
Summary: As Far as the brand and actual printer itself, they are good products. It is nice to have the convience of being able to print that picture right now. As far as buying used, never again, for this type of product. I have since bought this new, at a local retailer and enjoy it very much.
Stunning prints (better than inkjet), a few caveats

Summary: Notes: 1. Print quality is beautiful, and in a league apart from inkjets, though I did notice a white (unprinted?) speck or two on two different pictures and in different places (out of four that I have thus far printed). 2. Very portable, though as another reviewer stated, you need to lug around the paper tray and either the included power brick/cord or optional battery, in addition to the printer unit. This is great to bring to family get-togethers and the like. 3.
Summary: What a great little photo printer! I just got mine and it's fantastic. The quality of the printed photos is outstanding. The prints look just like the ones you'd have printed at Target/Walmart/etc. The printer itself is tiny, perfect for traveling. There is also a Li battery pack available if you wish to print on the road. Overall, this printer is very easy to use, whether you are printing directly from your camera or from your computer.
Summary: No doubt the price of the printer, the price per print (you need to shop around for the ink though), and the quality of the print combine to be an excellent choice. Just that I have some trouble feeding the paper some time, but with that price, I won't worry about it too much.
Summary: We love our Canon SELPHY CP510 Compact Photo Printer, even if the supplies might be considered pricey. The 4x6" prints are clear, water resistent and permanent. Although this printer is a plus when wanting to print a good, quick photo, it still lacks the capability to be the all-in-one solution because of supplies and limited size of photo.
Summary: I bought this printer on sale a few months back at staples for 49 bucks. I have a canon s410 digital elph and really like that camera. I have used it with this printer. When I was buying this printer Kodak also came out with a new printer. For 50 bucks the printer is worth it. for 100 or more, you can do better. There is no LCD monitor on this printer, there is a canon model with one but it is so punny you are wasting your money buying it.
Summary: Upside: 1. Very easy to use and doesn't take up any space when traveling. 2. Connect directly to your camera or computer. 3. The quality of prints are fantastic although limited in size. I save paper/ink by putting multiple shots on one page. Thereafter, I select only the ones I really want to full size for framing or giving away. So far it's worked out well. Downside: 1. Canon should have left the postcard logo on the back of the paper off.
Summary: This is a very neat and quick(ish) photo printer, that gives really professional looking results. It uses the 'dye-sub' printing technique, not ink jet, so the results come out of the printer dry, and also coated with a thin film of protective plastic! The colors are very lively and the images do look like they have just come from a photo lab. It's a little bit of a fiddle to set up, as you have to load the paper in the tray and then put this into the slot provided.
