Produces Excellent Photos

MWCraft, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the printer many years ago and loved the photographs that it produced. It was a fantastic printer that my wife also used to print family and vacation photos for her scrapbooking. Sadly, we eventually wore the printer out, did not replace it and have not had a color printer since. I tried other photo paper but found that the Olympus paper worked best (for me).

If you have Windows 7 operating system, don't buy this printer

Kay L and Kenneth L Grady, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: This printer does not come with any type of drivers. After receiving the printer, we discovered the Windows 7 operating system does not have drivers for this printer. There are some available on-line that are suppose work with Windows XP or Windows 2000. So far, my husband has not been able to get the drivers to work (he is a retired computer geek, so has alot of expertise).

Thermal Printer

leanderk29, Ebay
14 October 2010
  • Summary: The printer prints lovely hard copies. After some tweaking I believe that the file could look better than lab photos. One of down sides to this printer is it will not read the newer files by a newer high-end camera. I bought this printer to create 8x10 prints on location, but what I found was in order to do this the printer has to be connected to a computer. But this is one of only a few flews for this model.

would like to give it 5 stars, but does not work

David Owens, Amazon
7 July 2006
  • Summary: Unfortunately, this machine does not work yet. Rather than hassle the return centers and all that, I am electing to take it to Olympus, down the street from me, and pay to have it fixed. Hopefully I can then update this review. Olympus claims the printer works, but it will not for me. I have a Mac, so probably that is the problem. It is gathering dust as we speak, and I will eventually put it in the dumpster.

Amazing printer

D. Richardson "D.R.", Amazon
1 January 2006
  • Summary: This printer is amazing in its output. It is functionally equivalent to the P-440, which is newer. You can get good output from good inkjet printers, but only dye sub printers give you output that truly looks like it came from a professional lab. The DPI relative to ink jets is meaningless-this printer has NO DOTS. If you look at a print under a magnifying glass, you can't find the dots like you can with an inkjet print, because there aren't any.

Simply Amazing!

Amazonian "over the top", Amazon
4 February 2005
  • Summary: Got this printer for $199 new (plus tax). This is the only printer I have ever used that literally is plug and play. No tweaks or fiddling with settings (though the option to do that is available). Right out of the box it prints so good you'd think you were in a Kodak or Fuji lab. I've shot photos with Lumix LC5 and Lumix FZ20 and the prints are spectacular. The trickiest part was loading in the new film, after using up the sample film that came pre-loaded.

Only the best will do.

Amazon
10 April 2004
  • Summary: Nestled upon my desk between a new Brother HP-1440 laser and a recently purchased Epson 960 CD printer, is a three year old Olympus P-400. Fast high quality text print-outs are routed to the laser printer, and the Epson is used for the specialty printing of card stock, CDs, and DVDs, but all photographs are created from the P-400, whether in color or black and white.

Great photo printer for the commited digital photographer

W. Bexton, Amazon
29 March 2004
  • Summary: I've been printing 3.2 megapixel images on this and they're virtually indistinguishable from a "real" photo, even at the 7.64x10" full size (7.7 megapixel as advertised in the printer information) resolution. Don't believe the inkjet monkeys who tell you that an inkjet can produce comparable prints - they can't.
