Summary: I had one of these I bought new, but needed to replace and bought this one second hand. The original one I had lasted quite a few years and I didn't have any regular problems with it till it stopped working. Felt I had gotten pretty good value for the original. This replacement was used and it didn't last at all, I am sorry I bought it used.
Summary: I bought this printer to replace one exactly like it that I have had for years. Some functions on my old printer did not work, and every time I turn it on, I receive a message that internal parts need service. When I checked Epson's customer service, they advised replacing the printer, and from experience, I know it is not usually worth the cost of repairing printers. I bought my first one used from a friend about 6 years ago, and I know she used it a lot.
Summary: The Epson PictureMate is a fantastic printer. I love it and will soon be buying my second one because I just wore mine out by printing thousands of pictures, and didn't keep my insturctional booklet that would tell me how to fix the "click" in the box. I had another printer that I had just bought sitting right next to the Epson Picturemate and I gave up on it because in had to run the print back and forth to add the color to the picture.
Summary: I chose the Snap as a gift for a sister who is challenged by new technology. Its ease-of-use should win her over, plus its compact size and portability. She'll never have to use the computer as it accepts most image cards directly. It should be a great printer for her scrap-booking if she learns to use the new digital camera! The printer's introductory print pak was past the expiration date, producing striped prints. Nozzle cleaning did nothing.
Summary: WOW!!!! I purchased this printer to replace my old Picturemate (the original) that died after 4 years of hard use. I really didn't expect to see a huge difference in quality, a Picturemate is a Picturemate right? WRONG! The print speed and quality are OUTSTANDING, even better than my old picturemate! I did shop around and after visiting a couple of well known electronic and office supply stores and hearing "Oh.
Summary: I probably wouldn't have thought to buy this printer since I already have a great Epson photo printer, but I got it free as part of a promotion when I bought my latest digital camera. If I had known then what I know now, I would pay for this printer. I've printed 30-40 pictures out of this printer so far, and I've been thrilled with every single one.
Summary: This device worked great out of the box, with sharp colors and good detail for a $100 printer. It's easy to connect to a PC, and the onboard interface works well (though it's a bit clunky). That's the good part. The bad part outweighs any advantages. Here's what happened to me. Two days after receiving and testing the printer, I decided to print more photos. They were filled with horizontal lines, so I ran the device through its onboard cleaning cycle.
Summary: This is a great printer. I had some pictures developed at my local camera shop and paid 79 cents a print to get it printed right away. Then I went home and printed the same pictures off my Snap. I thought the quality was better on my little Snap. It only costs about 25 cents a print on the Snap, plus you can do it at home. Once in a while, you have to clean the heads, but the printer does it all. You just press a few buttons.
