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. 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).
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.
Summary: Avoid this printer for the following reasons. 1) It's paper size doesn't fit regular frames 8x10 or 4x6. 2) It takes ribbons that are sometimes difficult to load. 3) Print quality is about the same as a the latest ink jets. 4) Doesn't have slots for Compact Flash or Secure Digital cards only Smart Media which almost nobody still uses. 5)Consumables are at least twice the cost of ink-jets.
Summary: I have asked Olympus tech support to tell me why this printer will not print the number of copies I send though to the printer. After six weeks, three calls with hour long waits and voice mail messages, I have had no response. Very disappointing. Time to move to Epson.
Summary: Olympus should take the time to print out these comments and make it a resolution to have engineering, the tech manual writers and customer service become familiar with the problems associated with their product.
