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

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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
Great photo printer for the commited digital photographer

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.
Summary: I spent the big bucks when this machine first hit the market. The only problem is through Photoshop -- the ppd doesn't print the picture as you see it on screen. In Mac, I've tweaked through Photoshop, then import into IPhoto then print out for picture perfect images through the computer.
Summary: This printer is an outstanding photo printer. I am clueless as to why Olympus does not tout the remarkable quality of the prints produced on this printer. I looked at all the photo printers available, extensively read tons of reviews on inkjet, laser and dye sublimitation.
