Summary: I haven't use it in full use of it since Christmas of 2013 yet. I had several occasions during the year that I used my other printer, the artesian series which was big to lug around until this Epson PictureMate Show came along. The only problem with this is one cannot buy individual ink cartridges. But I guess I'm keeping it simply because it's small and portability.
Summary: I have used a lot of printers over the years for my photos. But this is buy far the best printer I have ever used. The printing is top notch. I take a lot of photos in a years time and have had them printed buy pro's as well as home printing and this printer does every bit as good of job that any pro could do. Money well spent I would tell all my photo friends to get one. Some of them have already used mine and were very pleased how their pictures turned out.
Summary: Before purchasing my first Picturemate, I did a good amount of research on the internet, mainly reading consumer reviews. I wanted a portable printer, and saw there were many things to consider: ie print speed, printer size, print options, price, features, serviceability, the list goes on. For me the bottom line was the end product: sharp, clear, crisp prints with great color. All reviews pointed me in the direction of Epson Picturemate.
