Summary: I bought the Sony Digital Photo Printer (DPP-SV77) about a year ago with the intention of using it for all my photo printing. It is easy to use, compact, and fits anywhere. It produces a great looking photo.
Summary: The Sony Digital Photo Printer -- with its dye sublimation technology -- easily prints the most oustanding digital photos I've ever seen. The photos are borderless, waterproof and archival! And the colors are more vibrant than any ink jet photo I've ever made.
worth the money if you don't want to mess with a PC

Summary: We bought the DPP-SV77 because we recently had twins and wanted to make photos available immediately for friends and family. Our printer for our PC just wasn't up to the job. This printer has some legitimate problems but does a credible job if you don't mind some oversaturation on your color prints.
Summary: I bought the DPP-SV77 because I wanted a way to take my digicam media (CompactFlash) directly from the camera and make prints without using a PC. While the DPP can be connected to a computer, the built-in LCD makes this really unnecessary.
Summary: I now have three photo printers, including the HP 1315, which prints 8X10s with great fidelity. But all things considered this is the best photo printer I own. Why? The answer lies in the process. The finest commercial printing establishments use dye sublimation printers.
Summary: In my book, if you deliver a product that works you've hit the target. If it doesn't work out of the box then you get to test the support system -- in this case, Sony gets an "F". I have a Dell with Windows ME (original OS install - seemed to matter to Sony support).
Summary: This is one of the easiest electronic products to use from the many that I have purchased. You plug it in and put in your digital cameras photo stick and it does the rest. The photos appear on the screen and you can scroll through them and when you see the one you want to print you hit the print...
Summary: We use this printer as a standalone photo printer with our Sony digital camera and 128 meg memory stick. Well worth the investment. Photos are professional quality. Yes, the paper is expensive, about 50 cents a photo more or less. You get a new cartridge with each box of 25 photos.
