Summary: I use this printer for doing quick 4x6 proofs or for printing snapshots from my point-and-shoot. I have a higher-end Epson 2880 for more serious work or for larger prints, but the PM260 makes a nice alternative for those times when I just want to run off a few 4x6 prints. I like that it's incredibly handy and you can go from camera to prints in just a few moments. The prints are as good as any you'll find in this size range, and you can't beat the convenience.
Summary: I had purchased this unit because i was dissatisfied with the prints i was getting from like walgreens and walmart. even though i adjusted my pictures before i had prints made, so many of the prints i got back weren't even close to what i was seeing on my computer. i printed a couple of the same pictures on my all in one printer and they turned out much closer to what i was seeing on my computer. this is why i purchased a photo printer.
Summary: I purchased this printer to use in a photo booth that I'm building for my wedding in January. I did a lot of research to find the fastest but still good looking prints. The PM260 delivers! The first print can be in your hands in about a minute and additional prints will be done in about 45 seconds. The quality is astounding. I've used up the initial cartridge and paper in testing my photo booth software and every print looked great.
Summary: I've had this printer for about a week and I'm pleased with it. It does what it is supposed to do and the prints are great every time. Works well with all my photo software programs. I would have given it five stars but the ink supply that comes with it only lasts for about 20 prints. So order some extra ink along with your Dash. Keep in mind that it only prints 4x6 pictures.
Summary: Purchased the Epson PictureMate 260. Very impressed with the ease of setup and the quality of the pictures. They are great!! It's very fast and very accurate at reproducing photos. You can even purchase a battery and take it with you. Now that's cool. The only downer is the number of pictures you can print with the ink cartridge that comes with it. The answer is - pathetically few.
Pictures are better than lab's picture, believe it.

Summary: A film wedding photographer that recently converted to digital photography asked me to find him a photo-printer for his wedding work. His requirements: after taking pictures of the guess(es) that came to the wedding he wants to have their pictures in each individual thank you card to give to the guesses before they leave the party. He used to send these digital pics to the lab to print out ....
