Summary: This compact printer is incredible. Setup is fast and easy with clear instructions. Prints excellent photos quickly from the computer (with USB cable). Regarding the complaints that the ink cartridge runs out before the included photo paper has all been used, if you print a lot of photos all in a day, the ink cartridge actually lasts well beyond the amount of photo paper that comes with it.
Summary: Ordered this on Monday at 4:00pm, it shipped the same day and I received it the very next day!! And this was free shipping!!! I just took it out of the box and I love it!!! Prints in under a minute from memory card, easy setup.
Excerpt: The printer is very nice. Comes with a starter kit of paper and ink. This is perfect for the home user to print out pictures instantly at gtherings. I also use it to do passport style photos for my small business. The battery pack is great, so you don't have to be restricted to an outlet. Picture quality is as good, if not better than getting your pictures printed out at store. The upfront cost is high, but I feel that it will pay for itself in no time.
Summary: At first I was a little disappointed as I thought I had ordered a PM260 which I loved. After I saw this was a charm I started to send it back, but decided to give it a try. Love it as much or even more than the 260. I have 4 grandchildren and am always making pictures and printing them and this does a great job. I have even used it without the computer at birthday parties, etc. to make pictures and give to guests.
Summary: This little printer is mobile even w/o power (optional battery pack which I purchased), produces lab quality photo's and is pretty quick. Wish they made one to do 8x10 with the same quality. Very satisfied.
Summary: We love this printer! In fact we are buying a second one very soon. We use the Picture Mate Charm with the lithium batteries which holds out easily for 3-4 hours for all our events that we take our miniature horses too. We are Minis and Friends, a 501c3 non-profit in Central Texas (Austin area).. normally most support visits have 60-80 pictures printed with one of the P225 ink and papers. PLEASE do not take this off the market.
