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: 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.
