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: Sony created a fantastic printer. The results are even better than the typical local chain drug store's services. However, Sony has DROPPED THE BALL and will no longer supply printer paper and their proprietary SVM series ribbons, so anyone with a printer of this series now owns a very expensive...
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.
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.
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).
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!!
