Summary: Just received my Sony Printer and all I can say is Oh My Gosh!!! We have been working on a family history photo project for several years and have always used the HP printers and been pleased with their performance. I purchased my Sony DPP_FP30 to try something new (since HP's don't like refilled cartridges anymore). One photo printed and I am hooked and will never go back.
Summary: I have the Sony camera and I have only used the Sony picture maker, to print off all my pictures. I have a new grandchild on the way and I plan on taking lots of precious pictures. Now I'm all set. Thank you!
Summary: I've had this printer for 3 years and use it all the time. I've had no problems with it and it still prints wonderful pictures. The only down side is that when I purchase the 40 picture pack, I usually have 1 picture paper left and I run out of ink, so I don't get my 40 prints, but the quality is so good that I like them better than if I go to CVS OR WAL MART.
Summary: Besides the expensive ink and paper (although value packs are available now), this little devil is a charm with a cherry on top! It is a bit more expensive than other dye-sub printers, but once you try it out you'll realize it's worth it. One leasson I learned, never go cheap on dye-sub photo printers, they're worth every penny and the DPP-FP30 rules them all.
Summary: Pictures are shape and the color is crisp and defined. It was easy to use and the price was right. I took about 1/2 minute for each picture to print. I'm a novice at photo printing and I had no problem. I highly recommend this device. You won't be disappointed.
Best All-Around Color Among Portable Dye-Sub Printers
11 June 2005
Summary: Aside from Sony, many other brands make portable dye-sublimation printers these days, which makes the choice tougher. I did not consider purchasing the Dell, HP, Kodak, or Olympus ones because they are simply too big - I wanted one that I can comfortably bring with me on my travels, so I can print my own postcards to send home.
Summary: I've had this printer for a few months now and I've never seen a better one!! The pictures look as good as the ones I got from a photoshop here in town. If I could give it more stars I would! The only problem I've found so far is that they print on postcards. You wouldnt know it til you turned it over, but still.
