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.
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.
Summary: If you want a printer that prints the closest to professional quality as you can get at an affordable price, this printer is for you. The only negative I have is the ink ribbon. I would rather use a cartridge, because it is simpler, but that aside, it prints excellent photos!
Summary: I have owned this printer for nearly two years. It has been trouble-free and has given me hundreds of beautiful pictures that have the look and feel of high-quality photo prints. I use Photoshop Elements to clean-up my images and to size them for printing.
Summary: Finally a low cost home solution to color photography. The P-400 is now priced at 1/3 of its original introduction price. Absolutely no comparison to any inkjet printer. Photos printed on inkjets fade over time.
