Summary: This printer worked for the first day, and that was about it. It stopped working completely after the first photo. When I enter my memory card (with over 500 photos on it) it reads "no photos found". The same thing happens when I connect it to my camera.
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: I bought this printer to have it as a backup. I own another PM225 and it works as a charm. As I bought it as a backup, i used the initial cartdrige in my other printer. There is no place in the documentation saying you should not do that. Or a message warning you about it. Now, I want to use my backup printer and it is impossible, as it asks for the Initial Cartdrige, I still have it, but it is empty and the printer does not recognize it.
Summary: Bought this the other day. Tried printing a few pictures and discovered that it won't take cards bigger than 4 Gig. Don't have anything that small anymore. All of mine are 16 gig or bigger. Also no way to brighten or darken an image other than a few crude presets. Don't want to plug it into the computer. Since I wrote the review have tried using a 16Gig and a 32Gig SDHD cards. They both worked fine. So some cards may be fine, others not.
Summary: Does not work with Apple equipment . tried getting the blue tooth adapter and it does not connect to Apple. It would be nice to know in the product description that the thing I'm.buying is not.compatible with the most popular electronic device (iPhone/I(anything)
Summary: Unfortunately for me I seem to have received one of their defects, because after only two months of sporadic use it doesn't function properly. Lines keep showing up on the pictures, and I followed directions to clean/clear all issues to no avail. No matter what I did and after numerous attempts, the lines still remain of all the printed photos. At this point I guess I'm screwed, since they'll just charge me a good amount to have it fixed. You win some and lose some.
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.
