Summary: Received this printer as a gift and loved the quality of the photos UNTIL one of the ink cartridges developed a problem. This printer uses a layered film system which produces great color but if a piece breaks off there is nothing you can do.
Summary: I print a lot of pictures, so I thought this was a good idea. If I print from the memory card, it will cut off some of the picture.(Half a face, the cool tree on the side...just gone) I've played around with the settings (boarder-less, or boarders) and couldn't find a way around this.
Summary: The printer will ONLY accept image files with the correct dimensions and EXIF data, and that's not even a guarantee that it will print off the USB/card slots. If you manage to get a picture it will print from USB/card, you can't crop it in the printer, and your options are very limited.
Excerpt: I've been a photographer since 2007, but never owned my own dye sublimation printer until March 2012 - I knew all about them, but until I decided to try my hand at on site printing for events, I'd never really needed one.
Pros: easy to use, convenient, quality results
Cons: attracts dirt which leaves marks on prints, expensive on print per print basis, can't crop
Summary: Printer was quick and easy to use also compact, quality of pictures was good, it was well cared for yet broke after 15 months, I was told engineer could look at it for £57 or it could be returned for £12.50. [it only cost me £5 to post it??]
Summary: Using a Sony Cybershot 14.4 megapixel, images which are very good quality when viewed in photoshop, print out with little sharpness, vibrancy or strength of colour. Avoid if you want good pics.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace my previous one which was perfect for me but didn't accept the cards from my new camera. I have been used to manipulating each picture, zooming in and printing single items as I needed them.
