Summary: I bought this printer as a replacement for a slightly older one that broke (fell off the table). Even though this one is from 2004, it was brand new, in the box. Windows 7 installed it without any help, and it printed perfectly. The ink and paper cartridges are easy to find. The one thing that I did notice, compared to the older model, was that this one is a lot lighter and there is a lot more plastic. But, hey, that older one lasted almost ten years and was flawless.
Summary: I recently purchased a used Sony DDP-EX50 Dye Sublimation Photo Printer for use at the local clubs. Once the photo is selected and sent to the printer, it takes approximately 60 seconds to have a good 4 x 6 print in hand. Colors are good. You can do 75 prints for approximately $30 ($0.40 each). Being a Dye Sublimation print, spill a drink on it and all you have to do is wipe it off. The print is not damaged.
