Summary: I bought this for my mom, who just wanted to be able to print photos to share with relatives. She loves it! The photo quality is great and it is easy to use. In fact, I may end up getting one for myself, just to make printing photos easier and without having to use my other printer for them. Hopefully, it will decrease my tendency to store my photos electronically and never getting around to print them and put them in a photo album.
Summary: Ink is very expensive and produces far fewer pictures than claimed and if you let it sit for a few weeks, the heads get clogged up and require many, many cleanings, which all use up lots of ink. My Epson all in one printer does almost as good w/out the cost and waste. Save your money.
Summary: Very happy with the print quality, but all three lasted about two years each. Ink runs out after about 60 to 75 prints so I have about 300 4x6 sheets left after my 3rd printer failed. You can't buy the ink alone without the paper. I now use a $79.00 HP ( got it free with my laptop )that I set up for quick 4x6 prints so that I can use up the paper. Print quality is almost as good as the Picturemate so it's ok in a pinch.
Portable, FAST, super crisp beautiful prints great for pic sellers!

Summary: I use this printer every weekend. I am an events photographer, and i print out photos to sell to party goers. the prints are CLEAR, and CRISP, and it is very light and portable, nearly silent...(does not matter in the club though) and really prints SUPER fast. The inkpack is the best of all because it comes with the paper included.
Summary: This is a great little printer. I work for a cosmetic dentist and have used this model for the past three years. We use it for digital xray copies and for our cosmetic before and after pics. Well worth the cost of the paper and ink. I bought this used and it was in perfect shape.
"High quality prints, but expensive. Ink dries out fast!"
6 October 2010
Pros: Superb vivid print quality, Very easy to use, Very portable & small footprint, Reads USB, memory cards or your computer
Cons: Printer ink dries out fast. If you set it aside for a few days & use it later, there will be streaking & lines. It's expensive! You can buy prints for less at drugstores or the internet. You must buy the pack, so can't save by using cheaper pape
