Summary: The pictures you get are gorgeous. If you want to pay about a buck a pic, that is. The ink cartridge DOES NOT LAST! We get between 35 and 50 pictures, not 150. This is the second time it has happened, and we use the cartridge well before the "use by" date.
Summary: I was so excited to get this printer for Christmas but then.....First of all, it won't print the entire picture - it always crops around the edges. Secondly, you can buy brand new ink but you only get about 10 good picture out of a cartridge and then it throws you error messages and tells you to buy...
Summary: This printer has been a piece of garbage since the day I bought it. I don't know why I kept trying, as the purchase was made about a year ago. It should have been thrown it in the trash long ago and I would have cut my losses (instead I did buy one more package of paper and ink. Mistake.
Summary: I tried my Picturemate for the first time last night and it malfunctioned almost immediately. It claims that it has a paper jam, but it doesn't. I've tried pushing "OK" to clear it as suggested, but this does nothing. It still insists it's jammmed and refuses to operate.
Summary: I received my Epson PictureMate Photo Printer as a 2004 Christmas gift. It printed the first 14 pictures very well. Then it started printing in poor colors, even though the ink level registered 75% full. I cleaned and aligned the print heads as instructed in the manual, but still no success.
Summary: This printer does not interface properly with iPhoto. Won't print borderless photos. Printer also resizes photos so the picture you print isn't the one you see on screen. Also, getting nowhere near 100 photos per ink cartridge. VERY poor customer service.
Summary: the unit did not work on arrival and is still not printing all its colours.I have attempted to clean the print nozzles with the Epson cleaning function without success.It is evident that the printer had been left for a long period without the ink cartridge being installed as recomended by Epson...
Excerpt: Having bought this printer, I was initially very impressed with the look of the output, even at the standard quality level. However, I was suprised to find that the printer displayed a low ink level message after printing just 6 photos.
