Summary: I used one off brand cartridge, the colors were not as accurate and the finish was uneven (some colos were dull and others were shiny). The off brand did not include paper. Stick with Epson on this one.
Summary: Of the three photo printers I have owned this is the best. It worked great for around three years and then the print head clogged. During that time I got more than my monies worth out of it. The ink cartridges last much longer than the quantity of paper they come with so I would buy photo paper and print several more prints. I would think that for the quality, quantity, and price there isn't a better printer.
Summary: It may be small, but big on picture quality. I had seen this machine a couple of years back at a scrapbooking convention, and had already seen the quality of the pictures. I was impressed for it's size, I didn't expect much. I do already have a much larger EPSON printer that is over 24" long, that cost over $1000 when it came out, and can print 13x17 pictures with not only 10 cartridges of ink, but 5 of them being black.
Summary: i highly recommend this product...the print quality is proffessional grade it is fast in printing multiple prints the cd burner is a really nice fearture you can add clip art make wallet size prints and even edit the pictures.
Summary: This is my second Epson printer, and I just love it! Easy to use, no computer needed. Would recomend this product to anyone. Best of all, I now can save my pictures to a disk myself...no more heading to Walmart.
Summary: Epson PictureMate Personal Photo Printer I am not an expert, but print lots of pictures taken on a point-and-shoot compact camera. I have been very happy over a period of 3 years with this printer. It is reliable. The quality is very good. The pictures are as good as any I get from the local print shop.
Summary: : PictureMate Deluxe Viewer Edition takes the personal photo lab one step further, making it even easier to view, edit and print glossy 4" x 6" photos. It measure 6 by 10 by 6 inches (HWD), weighs 5.5 pounds, and has a handle. The Deluxe Viewer Edition also has a battery option. Setup is just as easy as with the original.
