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 had the earlier version of this printer (CP300 with battery) and loved it. For travel reasons, I picked up the latest CP800. First of all, there is not much design change from the earlier version with the exception of the LCD screen. Here are my observations: 1.
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: Just a quick note to anyone buying this product as a "black" colour. The unit itself is black buit the power supply, power cable and paper tray are all white - making the product look rediculous and if its not one product, once assembled. No idea what is going on with this.
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.
Excerpt: Принтер справлялся со своими задачами на все 100%. Но случилась неприятность. Принтер почему то не выпустил до конца бумагу, о чем на экране принтера появилось соответствующее предупреждение. ну по опыту использования струйников я бумагу вытянул без проблем.
Pros: Прекрасная, качественная фотопечать (в разумных пределах) по сравнению со струйниками в этом ценовом диапазоне это безусловный лидер. Удобность, компактность. Автономная печать. Никаких проблем с переполнением памперса, прочисткой головки ( кто печатал много на струйниках тот поймет, когда при ка...
Cons: Самый главный недостаток, как я раньше думал, это цена оригинальных расходных материалов. Неоригинальных не существует. Второй - максимальный размер 10х15 см. Ну и третий, но как оказалось самый основной, полное отсутствие послегарантийного сервиса. Его просто нет.
