Summary: You will never hear me complain about the fantastic quality of the Olympus P330 pictures. But good luck finding the paper/ink packets for sale. This is a dye sublimation printer so it is a real four-color process print like the professionals use.
Summary: My friends are always commenting on the quality of the photos printed out on our Olympus photo printer. They really look like they came back from the photo shop. They are cosmically better than what you can get from your old inkjet, even if you print inkjet pictures on nice paper.
Summary: I have had this printer for quite a while now. It prints unbelievable pictures that compare to the Kodak photo lab. After I am done taking my shots with my Olympus C-3030zoom camera I insert the smartmedia card directly into the printer, then I plug the printers video output into my television.
Summary: the printer gave very good results, but see no need for all the insturction books, (2) that come with the printer. Everything said could surly be condensed to one simple to read and use set of insturctions. there should be a better system to tell what you are going to print before you print it.
Summary: This printer is designed for one task- printing 4x6 color images. It's not real fast or real cheap but it is very easy to use and the quality of the prints is comparable to conventional photos.
Summary: There are suggestioons, including on Amazon.com that the P-330 and a Sony Digital Camera that uses 3.5" floppy disks are compatible. To a limited extemt this may be true, but direct use is not possible as the P-330 only takes the smaller Smart Media disk.
No driver for Windows NT. Picture quality is poor.

Summary: The setup was relatively easy until I tried to hook it up to my PC. There is no driver available for Windows NT workstation. I tried to install it under Windows 95. Spent most of my Saturday with downloading drivers from their website.
Digital prints with the same quality as real photos

Summary: This printer is amazing. Although it takes a while to print, the results could easily be confused with a real photo. Being able to print directly from a Smart Media card or a digital camera is quite convenient.
