Summary: I purchased this printer because my previous P-10 broke down and a Dye-Sub Printer is a must in my photo business. This printer has done exactly what I needed and I would recommend it to any serious photo print enthusiast.
Summary: Makes perfect 4x6 photos every time. It is quick, cheap to operate, and simple to use. The only problem I have, is it is not supported by windows 7, so until the driver developers get off of their butts and do something about it I am stuck using it on my laptop with XP Professional.
Summary: My Olympus P-10 ceased to function one day which prompted me to purchase the P-11. The P-11 has a significantly faster print engine compared to most other dedicated photo printers. In addition, a compact chassis makes hauling it to different locations easy. I did not like the fact that the side panel needed to be removed to replace the thermal dye cartridge, insert computer USB connection, and to connect the power. The P-10 was better designed in this aspect.
Summary: Printer works for all of my basic 4x6 printing needs. I can print nice pictures from my digital camera, PC, and/or cell phone. Pictures are nice and clear. This printer takes no time with processing the information sent to it.
Summary: I'd been using an Epson Photomate for a couple years. The prints from that were excellent - when it worked. That is a ink cartridge printer and I had several cartridges fresh direct from Epson that only gave me a handful of prints before the images went bad. They promise to reimburse you if you send back the paper and I have about 200 sheets of paper left over. The Olympus has been terrific. I've printed about 250 photos and not a single reject.
Summary: I have not used this printer very much since I have another printer.( I've had it about 6 mo.). Halfway through the pack of 100 paper the ribbon cartridge broke. You can't buy just a ribbon cartridge, you have to buy a complete package of paper and ribbon. The ribbon only prints the number of photo paper you purchase. So now I have all this extra paper and no way to use it.
Summary: I have tried several different photo printers and have found the Olympus P-11 to be the best. It has a small foorprint, is very easy to use, prints a very good quality, water-resistant 4X6 color photo in just a few seconds and is very durable.
Summary: I purchased this printer for mainly 4x6 prints & my Canon printer for larger prints. The picture quality is often different from my PC monior screen and I have to adjust the graphic setting for different pictures. In other words, I have to waste several test prints before I finally get a picture close to the monitor. Also when I print, I need to individually import/transfer picture files into the Olympus software from My Pictures folder of Window XP.
Summary: Very happy with this printer. I am, always, concerned with quality performance. But, also with price. I wanted a photo printer that I could print right here at my computer and not have to go to some store to print out. So, the price of paper and printing film was a concern, too, but not to important for the low quantity I print. This printer was less than half price to purchase from Amazon.com, and the paper and film less than half price, too.
Summary: This is the printer that I have been waiting for. It does exactly what I hoped for. The color is rich. The pics look as good or better than a processing house would do...and much quicker. Very simple to use, even I couldn't screw it up. Highly recommend.
