Summary: Nice quality prints and good features. Paper and ribbons are expensive and can be hard to find. Shipped drivers have problems with some usb cards, no newer drivers are available. In fact, there are NO drivers available for download from Sony's web site.
Summary: I have this printer for over 2 years, it is great the print out is the best! I have both ink jet photo printer and this Sony photo printer and the ink jet printer is nowhere close to the DPP-EX50. I would give this printer 5 stars but Sony support take away 2 of the stars.
Summary: I have had this printer for over 2 years and it is one of the very very best I have ever seen. But there's one big problem--I upgraded to Vista and found it didn't work. Months of emails later to Sony Tech support, I am told that Sony has no plans to introduce a Vista driver. Be warned!!
Summary: I am partial to Sony, I had bought the same printer in 2004, still working, but I bought this one of the same, new so now I have two. I don't want to be without, makes the best pictures, even after 10 years, no fading! Too bad they are not staying in business.
Summary: After struggling with the reliability of several Epson InkJet printers, I decided it was worth investing in what I thought was the high-end picture printer- the Sony dye-sub. After a couple weeks it wouldn't print and had to go back to Sony for a 6 week repair job.
Great Printer... but you need the driver. Here it is.

Summary: This printer is fantastic to print 4x6 prints. But I recently lost the CD for it. It took quite a bit of searching and after I read some of these reviews that SONY does not give good support and no driver was available, I was depressed. But, I finally found the driver online.
