Summary: Owned and used the first picturemate to make thousands of excellent prints, that first one wore out - no complaints as I got a lot out of it. The pm 225 has greatly inferior quality - same files , terrible prints. Have spent better part of a week messing with it - 100 prints later no satisfaction. Tried everything, this printer is just not capable of the high quality results I got from the first model I had. A real headache and a waste of money for me ...
Excerpt: Do not buy this product from Staples.com. I use and love this printer for my business. I own 4 of them. I recently ordered one and it is defective. I have been waiting for over a week for a RMA and call tag. Staples has CHARGED my credit card THREE times for the amount of a coupon I used. THREE times with no authorization!! And still no credit for my printer. Calls to customer servcie are not returned. Called Corporate they could care less.RETURNS!! THAT IS NOT EASY!
Summary: The photos are good quality if you can get the printer to work properly. Unfortunately, I spend most of my time running the machine through multiple cleaning cycles. Supposed to get 150 pictures out of a photo pack, I'm lucky if I get 30 or 40. If the machine isn't used frequently, the ink dries up and you're back to buying another expensive cartridge. Very dissapointing.
Summary: Bought this printer under the pretense of using it with Mac OS 10.7 operating system. Mistake. Why can't Epson just come out and say this software driver is not ready or will never be supported rather than offer the implied suggestion that it's available and refer me to umpteen FAQs.
Summary: This is a great printer for printing from a camera, a computer or memory card but it does not work with an iphone or ipad either with USB connection or with the bluetooth adapter. If you use an ipad or iphone and you want to just be able to hook up directly to the printer DO NOT buy this printer.
