Summary: I use it all the time for parties and I haven't had a problem yet. It says that it yields 100 pics per cartridge, but I get about 130-150 depending on if it's continuous printing or occasional. I definitely got more than my money's worth. I would have paid full price at the store for it!
Summary: This is an excellent snapshot printer that is extremely easy to use and provides very nice quality photos. The cost per print is less than most other printers though still more than commercial online photo labs. It is very compact and can be used portably (I have never done so). Its retail price is on the pricey side which is the only drawback.
Summary: There was not a catagory for this particular printer, but this was the closest to it. What I am reviewing is the upgrade for '07. It is the Epson Picture Mate personal photo lab "Dash" or "Flash" series. I have the "Flash" model, which the only difference that i can tell between the Flash and Dash is that the Flash lets you burn, yes, burn your photos onto your cds and dvds right there in the printer.
Summary: I love the fact that the printer is portable and print excellent photos. I purchased the printer for a family function, I wanted to take pictures of everyone to take home as a keepsake. The PictureMate 500 Inkjet is a wonderful portable photo printer.
Summary: I am very pleased with my Epson PictureMate 500 personal photo Lab Compact Printer, was so pleased with it but then started printing wrong but was working right when I set it to clean the ink heads and now works perfectly I would recommend this company and would use them again
Summary: I bought one of these from Amazon at a very competitive price. I have not previously developed my own photo's and I am not very technically minded. This Epson printer is so easy to set up and use and the quality of the prints is excellent, as good as, or better than, the usual mass developing firms. I have printed direct from my camera's memory stick and also direct from my PC. It will do a range of things that I haven't got round to trying yet.
Summary: After reading the reviews and comparing the specifications of the PictureMate 100 and PictureMate 500 I was still left wondering if the PictureMate 500 is worth the extra money (currently selling for £50 more). Reviews for both are very positive and the only real difference in specifications is that the PictureMate 100 is 4 colours dye ink and the PictureMate 500 uses 6 colours dye ink.
