Some major problems

J. Douglass, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: This printer prints beautiful photos when it's working properly. However, if you go for weeks without using it, the nozzles will be clogged and it has to go through the self-cleaning cycle over and over to correct the problem. Also, I have NEVER been able to get 100 prints out of a cartridge. I'm lucky to get 75. It irks me that I can't buy the cartridges alone without the paper. I have a back log of paper!

I love the convenience!

  • Summary: Love the convenience, the quality, portability, ease of use. However, one can only print about 20 photos before the ink cartridge gets low, so it is not economical. Does the convenience make up for the expense? You will have to decide for yourself.

Not Worth It.

K. Constance, Amazon

  • Summary: The Epson PictureMate Dash PM260 makes good looking prints. It even recognizes my 8 GB SDHC memory card but plan on connecting the printer to your computer if you want to print out more than just a few prints. I have seen where some people say that the PM260 print quality is better than Sam's Club or Costco but I don't think so. CONS 1. The printer indicated that I needed a new ink cartridge after printing only 7 pictures. 2.

Lousy support

C. wagoner "ottersea", Amazon

  • Summary: I got this printer as a Christmas present. While it may be a great printer, I don't know since it will not work with my older operating system. I have been trying with epson for over two months to get them to take it back since it does not support my operating system to no avail. All I have been getting is the run around from them trying to troubleshoot installation. I have told them each time that it is not a installation problem but a compatibility problem.

Beautiful pictures, but poor value

L Gott, Amazon

  • Summary: The photos printed on this paper look really great. They look just as good as something I would have done professionally for a standard 4x6. However, the amount of toner in these cartridges doesn't appear to be anywhere near what they are promising. I got the printer for Christmas (it comes with a cartridge), along with this ink/paper replacement pack.
