Summary: This does produce beautiful pictures but the ink cartage does not do enough pictures so I suggest that you order extra ink ahead of time. Using a lot of ink seems to be normal for these kinds of printers but when you consider the prints and what it takes to produce such wonderful prints it is kind of understandable.
Summary: This is a great little printer I use it for shooting event / shows (photo booth style). I used to carry a generator and 4800. Now I use the battery for the 225 (charm) and laptop it works perfectly. A number of reviews claim there is no driver for Macs. This is 100% wrong, the driver is part of the OS now the same way it is for a many other Epson products it is preloaded, add printer, presto it is there.
Summary: The Picturemate Charm prints great photos. It is excellent for use when you don't have a 110vac outlet when using a battery (purchased separately.) It prints quickly and the prints are very nice and make great keepsakes. There are two issues I wish Epson would address 1) You cannot delete pictures from a SD card inserted in the printer.
Summary: I really love this printer, but was very disappointed that the Bluetooth adapter is NOT compatible with Apple products. Printer and cell phone compatibility should absolutely be included on the purchase page of Amazon. Customer's want wireless connectivity and with so many devices and manufacturers out there, this should be disclosed up front on all purchase sites.
Summary: I bought this as a gift for my wife and she loves it. The photo quality is great and it's easy to use. One caution though, don't put the paper in upside down. It takes forever to get things clean so it prints correctly again. Also it would be nice if you could buy the ink locally.
Summary: The PM225 is a wonderful printer.The color reproduction is most excellent. The prints are indeed smudge, water and fade resistant. The cost of a print is modest, especially considering the great quality.
Summary: I love my PM 225 Charm photo printer. It prints up nice bright images and it's quick. The only flaw is that the print cartridge sometimes cakes up and has to be cleaned. This can use so much ink that I sometimes get very few usable prints from one cartridge. But I don't want to give it up. It's so convenient and I love the fact that I'm not using more resources than I need for current projects.
