Prints great pictures when heads are not clogged up

Summary: Inkjet printers have never been a personal favorite of mine. Since the early days of inkjet printers, the quality of printouts they generate never impressed me. As photo printers came into the market, I never felt they were a worthy replacement for traditional photo prints. Having said that, the quality of prints from the PictureMate is very impressive. At a passing glance, you cannot distinguish these prints from professional photo lab prints.
Summary: This is a fine little printer for 4x6 prints. And if it actually delivered anywhere near the stated number of prints per pack, it would also be economical. Because I don't print a lot, my ink runs out way before the paper does, leaving me with stacks of useless paper. Epson does not allow you to buy ink without also buying paper, so you are stuck.
Summary: PictureMate generally does a good job. Instruction booklet leaves a lot to the desired!!! Contact with manufacturer near worthless. Plan to use up much time/materials to finally figure out all the many features built into this unit.
Great picture quality but needs an image preview screen.

Summary: I am an amateur digital photo enthusiast and recieved this for Christmas. At first, I loved it! The picture quality was great, very close to lab quality digital prints. It seemed fairly easy to use and had fun little editing features like cropping, sepia effects and the ability to print wallets as well as 4 x 6.
