Summary: Not what I expected. Color was different than selected. Selection was blue when it was usupposed to be silver. Sender offered to allow return but too much hastle and time, which is why I ordered it online. I expected it to be larger but it was the same size as one I saw in the store for $30.00 less. Would not buy again unless it is directly from Amazon.
Summary: Setup was very simple, it's small, it prints relatively quickly and the print quality is great! This is exactly what I was looking for in a compact photo printer. I just hope it lasts for a long time without any problems. But as of now, excellent product. Update (2/27/2013): It worked well and photos came out looking great... until it broke.
Summary: I was not diligent in my research prior to buying this printer. The lack of the trimming feature caught me by surprise. The events where I want to use this printer are not given to meticulous framing and composing so I really miss the trimming function. This is a nice printer, but it does not suit my need to be able to crop photos while away from the computer.
Summary: This is a nice little printer and very reasonably priced. The downfall is the cost of the ink ribbon and photo paper. It cost over .40 per picture to print. It is a very specialized ribbon cartridge and you have to use their photo paper. I sent it back.
Summary: The Selphy printer prints turn out quite nice, but I had a few issues. Pros: Easy of use Good quality Small and light Speed is decent (the new ink jets are now faster then the Selphy) Great price for the printer, I even found it at the local store for the same price as Amazon Cons: not quite 4X6 prints (the are slightly smaller) only holds 18 sheets of paper at atime Ink and paper is kind of expensive, and not always easy to find.
Summary: Hi! I Researched for months before landing back on this Canon Selphy CP 780 printer. If you read enough info on the ink vs dye sublimation, you will find that most net reviews are going with dye for crispness, holding true to color, and longevity. I was nervous to try this method,as been an ink jetter for so long, but think about it.. dots per square inch, versus complete ribbon layering coverage.. its amazing to watch this thing print.
Summary: Habe diesen Fotoprinter für die Schwiegermutter bestellt, da diese in Sachen Technik nicht so begabt ist. Er ist auf jeden Fall leicht zu handhaben, u.auch ohne Bedienungsanleitung zu verstehen. Fazit:,, idiotensicher. Relativ schnell im Ausdrucken. Fotoqualität auch zufrieden stellend. Was wir zu bemängel haben ist aber:, 2 Bilder ausgedruckt u.die Farbpatrone war schon leer.
